Embroidery and roses, a girl’s best friends

mei 25th, 2017 Fashion Deborah Gebruers 3 min read

Two of the most girly things in fashion definitely are embroidery and romantic roses. Add girly pink and you have the strongest stereotype you can imagine. But it doesn’t necessarily have to be this way. Dolce & Gabbana has been combining embroidery and roses for ages, portraying an image of a very feminine but yet fierce woman. I don’t think the way you dress defines…

Elegant spring

Spring is in the air and summer is around the corner. I’m trying to get as much sun as possible, to get those vitamin D levels up again. Also very common: fabrics get thinner and skirts get shorter. But the thing I love the most about summer is the fact that everybody gets a little bit more friendly. People are smiling, strangers saying hello, everybody is…

Urban Skincare

When we hear the word beauty we immediately think about dashing lip colours, strongly pigmented eyeshadow and sparkly highlighter. Put on all the decoration you want but if your skincare ritual isn’t on point, it will show eventually. I love make-up. I loved it ever since I was kid. I used it to complete my look while playing dress up. My key colours back then…

Do mean girls become mean women?

A few weeks ago we celebrated International Women’s day. A day to take a look at what we conquered during the years. We celebrated the movement for women’s rights and we honoured what they achieved. The fact that there is a day like this, means that we still have a long way to go. It means that the world still needs a reminder that women are…

When it all turns to dust

mrt 19th, 2017 Fashion Deborah Gebruers 4 min read

When things go bad, people commonly say: dust yourself of and try again. So stubborn as I am, I dust myself on with this jacket & skirt combo.   The dusting off part. The saying is true. You should let people get you down. Also take in consideration what they said, if they have given constructive criticism. But those who are saying some serious crap shouldn’t…

When fashion changes fast, return to the essentials

mrt 15th, 2017 Fashion Deborah Gebruers 4 min read

Fashion changes every minute, or at least every season. When it’s fashion week, designers show collections that will be in stores two seasons later. At least they used to do. Even more rapidly, the fashion crowd becomes hungrier. They want things faster and faster and more and more. Forgetting all about the less is more tendency. It has come so far that it is even…

Sometimes the outside is more interesting than the inside

It is more important to look at the inside than the out. You can’t judge a book by its cover. And there might be more than meets the eye. Always make an effort to find out what is inside Or should you? Your opinion might change when you see Mieke Dierckx’ bags. Suddenly the inside isn’t that important anymore. Whether you use it as a…

Go bright or go home

A well known tip for buying something expensive is to go for timeless designs and colours. Like the famous LBD. I never been that kind of girl. When you ask me to choose a statement piece I would always select something that will catch your attention at first glimpse. When you spend a little extra on garments, they should stand out. Use them to distinguish yourself…

C’est l’amour?

Christmas time ended and New Year’s Eve is over. Tons of food and litres of alcoholic beverages have past. While we just finished cleaning up the last Christmas decoration we are already set for the next miniature holiday: Valentine. In case you didn’t see the red balloon hearts and paper cupids popping up everywhere. Many have mixed feelings about valentine’s day and many sceptics say…

Dress like you don’t feel like doing anything

feb 1st, 2017 Fashion Deborah Gebruers 1 min read

Do you know those days when you don’t feel like doing anything? Contrary to Bruno Mars I can’t just lay in my bed, not picking up the phone. I don’t even know those days anymore. It seems like there’s always something to do, always some kind of deadline I can’t miss. I don’t even remember the days when I actually didn’t do anything at all….
