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

mei 16th, 2017 Fashion Deborah Gebruers 2 min read

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…

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…

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….

My favourite items

Some people may like raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens. Others may prefer less sweet and corny things.   But the truth is we all have favourites. Our favourite food, our favourite teacher, our favourite bar, there are even parents who have their favourite child. Like a responsible parent I’ve also invested time, efforts and money on my closet and even I have favored some pieces….

Talk nerdy to me

  I’ve been wearing glasses since I was a kid. As long as I remember, I always had a love-hate relationship with it. I needed them because couldn’t see a thing without them but at the same time it wasn’t the most popular accessory at that moment. A wrong choice of design even made you look goofy. Even worse, when you’re a kid they also…

The ultimate summer colour

aug 8th, 2016 Fashion Deborah Gebruers 4 min read

Yellow No other colour screams summer like yellow. But for most people this colour is just to much and too big of a risk. Yellow is for the dare devils and not for the side chicks. You can’t get by unnoticed with a yellow garment.  And that’s exactly the reason why people should wear it more. Apart from being a summer colour it is also…
