Angiekje is writing an article on how to make the most out of your dresses for the holiday season and beyond, and she asked me to be a part of it! well, honestly, I just offered my help but she kindly accepted! :D I love a little challenge, especially when it concerns my favorite garment: the dress. Dresses are the easiest way to look put together (no need to pick a top + bottom that matches) and keep it cheap (again, no need to buy both a top and a bottom), but they can feel sort of “constricting” as in that they don’t leave you as much room for improvisation as skirts or tops do. So yes, it is a challenge to create 4 very distinct looks using one dress, but I think I sort of succeeded! I chose to combine the dress for four occasions: one “chic” for a job interview or meeting the parents in law, one sweet for a family gettogether at christmas, one casual for an afternoon of shopping with the girlfriends or to go to class, and one sexy to party the old year away. So here are my looks! I think it’s pretty obvious which is which, but to make things clear: the one with the orange sweater is for work/inlaws, the one with the white tights is the sugary sweet look to be daddy’s little girl again, the one with the blazer is the sexy look and the one with the stripes is for shopping! Which one is your fave?



Talking about shopping: I just got invited by a fellow belgian blogger(Paulien, love her blog!) to check out the new River Island collection at a pre launch event! My first “real” press junket thingy! AWESOME


I’m typing this on my little babylaptop so I’m going to keep it short and sweet. See you later!

  6. Wow, deze post is echt héél leuk! Zo'n origineel idee, dat moet ik misschien ook ooit eens doen.. De eerste & derde outfit zijn mijn favorieten, erg schattig! Vooral de derde vind ik heel goed gevonden.

  9. ik vind de 2e look het leukste :)
    in de laatste foto lijkt je gezicht op dat van Miranda uit SATC, vind ik toch, kweet niet of er nog mensen dat vinden ^^
    de missie om 4 verschillende looks te creëren is allesinds met glans geslaagd :)

  10. I love the third and fourth styles - it looks amazing with the black jacket and booties and super cute and quirky with the striped top layered underneath.
