Expo // birds of paradise

momu1Last week I had the chance to discover the Birds of Paradise exhibition at the MoMu in Antwerp. My fellow bloggers and I got a guided tour trough the museum and the atelier. The main focus of the exhibition is feathers and plumes. I saw a lot of gorgeous pieces and designer treasures. Designers like Coco Chanel, Christian Dior and Yves Saint Laurent loved working with feathers from time to time. It was also really fun to get a glimpse of what’s happening behind the scenes of the museum. One of the most impressive pieces I saw was a coat that belonged to Marlene Dietrich. The coat was made entirely out of swan’s feathers.

This expo is definitely a must-vistit for all fashion lovers. You can visit the expo until august 24 at the MoMu in Antwerp, so make sure to stop by!

Outfit // busy days


h&m coat and scarf – cos sweater, necklace and bag – won hundred jeans – sacha shoes

Hi guys! Life has been so busy lately, hence the lack of updates on the blog. I have to deal with a crazy amount of schoolwork. There are only four more weeks of classes left and I have so many assignments to finish. I never thought I would say this, but I’m actually really looking forward to the exams (and christmas en NY’s eve of course). These pictures were taken a few days ago. It was so cold and rainy that day, and the wind made it quite a challenge to shoot decent pictures. This is kind of my everyday look these days: comfy with just the right amount of style.

Enjoy your weekend!
