Work is Out party

Hi lovers! Sorry for not posting yesterday night, but I was on a lovely night out with my girl Camille. We had lots of fun NOT studying, prepping, doing our make up, being harassed by my cats (the ginger one is in love with my friend), picking outfits, giggling and hanging out like totally cool rebel chicks drinking tea with honey. I settled on a feminine, retro look with my space nails(step by step explanation here), statement rings, leopard, tall heels, lace and winged eyeliner, while my friend went with a modern 70s elegance in her high waisted trousers and ruffled blouse. 
Just before we left I had one of my "OOH lets try something" moments and threw, pulled and folded my hair in a totally random and messy version of the french twist.  I have been drooling over french twists for as long as I can remember, but my hair has never been the right length: back when it was layerless and long, it was TOO long (waistlength), and when I cut it in layers, it just wouldn't stay up. When I went even shorter the french twist was totally out of the question, so this is really the first time in my life my hair is the right cut and length to go for it and I love it! I'm even wearing my hair up like this again today.

 GOSH she's such a babe.

We were invited by Emma Gelaude, fulltime babe, model and stylist, to join her at the Culture Club in Ghent where she held her Work is Out event and gave out styling advice after having her guests enjoy a SERIOUSLY yummy walking dinner! I chowed down on a lovely pasta with white wine and salmon sauce and vegetarian lasagne (my mouth is watering again, just typing this out!). There was also tiramisu, fresh bread and all kinds of other Italian inspired cuisine. LORD knows I would happily go to any event that offered me a yummy dinner, so I was delighted. Once again I ate everything before remembering to take pictures, sorry!


champagne and tiramisu!

we only had ONE alcoholic beverage, I promise!

Us giving our footsies some well needed rest. Shoes KILL!


I had a lovely time destressing, thanks Emma for inviting us! Hope you are having a lovely friday night, and hope you enjoyed the Royal wedding ;-) Kate looked lovely if you ask me, I loved the McQueen goes Grace Kelly. Talk about a fairytale!

  15. I said this on Chictopia, but your outfit is lovely! White looks stunning on you... and I love your glammy/tuff rings+nails.

    That seems like such a fun event! AND they gave you free food? What a deal! The party photos are so cute... I am jealous of your delicious champagne. I had the best champagne of my life on a bus on Moscow... but I have no idea what it was...

  20. You look gorgeous. Would it be weird if I said what fabulous legs you have? They look nice and tan here, is that natural or helped by tights/fake tan?

  21. You looked phenomenal. I love the French twist (about the only style my hair will do, and the 1920s sort of vibe to the dress. Plus, I don't really like leopard print, but I'm loving it on you. : )

  22. Obviously you look both amazing, however, the dress in the first two pics looks really beautiful. The look is super romantic, but with an edgy twist. Great!

    Love your dress! And the hairstyle... :-) Gorgeous! I've tried it out myself a lot when I was younger, but had to give it up, cause my hair is just too long, as you said, too.

  27. btw I was wondering since I have a Belgian friend who told me all her books and study materials were in English but she had to write reports in Dutch. Is that the same for you? It sounds so challenging!
