Date with Camille

Hey guys! Yesterday I had a lunchdate with one of my lovely friends, Camille. We were SUPPOSED to go to this tiny little authentic trattoria/italian restaurant but for some reason it was closed, so we ended up going somewhere else. The decor and conversation was great, but the food looked better than it tasted :-D Just reaffirms how lucky my boyfriend and me are to have such an AMAZING Italian place only 10 minutes from our house. 

But we both dressed fab, had lots of fun and ended our day with some personalized make up advise at the M.A.C. store, so all was good! Thanks for a great day, Camille! She's leaving Belgium to go pursue her dreams in Hollyw... no I mean London to get her a Master's degree in music management and I'm super proud of how she's such a levelheaded go-getter (and a babe at that). I'll miss you!

Here's what I wore: I love dressing up for my girlz.


The dress is this eighties does fifties frock in hideous man made fabric and weird ass colorscheme, but for some reason it totally worked when I put it on. Only cost me 2 euro anyway in the T2 sales and my petticoat goes with it perfectly. One of the ONLY upsides to this shitty weather is that I can get away with a 100% polyester dress without sweating my ass off! :-D 

Lemme share some pics of the food (all of it looked great, only the garlic bread was really AWESOME).



GOD how did I ever cope with this crappy camera? I only take it with me on days I don't feel like lugging around my good camera, but these pictures are SO bad! :-D Also,  every single last bit of tan has gone from my face, I'm pale as HELL yo. 

On the upside, my hair is looking fierce:


dress, purse (bought just yesterday): T2
belt: boyfriend's
sandals: H&M


Have a lovely night!

  4. You're so right: that dress is demonstrably weird but somehow it all comes together and looks so super wonderful on you! I'm glad you had a fun date with a friend and that you dressed up for her -- it's so much more fun than dressing up for your man!

  16. that looks like the perfect lunch to me! love your sunny dress! although the colors are not too bright it still looks very bright and quirky! i think it is because you are glowing, it makes a dress radiant! i love the patent leather sandals so much, the zipper makes it so rock and rolla!

  17. You look absolutely beautiful in that dress. I love the shape of it and how full it is with the petticoat layered underneath. It also has a really nice pattern that's perfect for summer.

  18. A good camera is definitively worth it isnt it? love the handbag by the way, was looking for something pretty like that in some vintage stores in Berlin but it didn't work out for me. T2 still remains my favourite vintage store apart from Beyond Retro xxx
