A sneak peek at some of the items I will be selling at Clean Closet on the 15th of November in Gentbrugge. Will you be stopping by for a chat and some vintage shopping? :)

IJ-hallen buit 48 leeg

A few weeks ago, me and my girls crammed our behinds in a car and hit the road for a true vintage treasure hunt. Destination: the “Ij-Hallen” in Amsterdam-North, for what is said to be the biggest flea market in Europe.

Oh those lovely summer days! I know it’s been insanely hot (by Belgian standards…) these last couple of weeks, but as a rule I refuse to really complain about sunny weather. We only have so little sunshiny days (a.k.a. opportunities to wear our most summery of summer wear) in this rainy little country, so we should see each one of them as a gift! (Cheesy alert..) Plus, doesn’t every weekend feel like a mini holiday with this weather? Pick-nicks in the… Read more »

Who knows, you might get some inspiration for a shopping trip over the upcoming long weekend :) Myriam Wulffaert Vintage (St.-Jacobsnieuwstraat… Read more »

This weekend I helped cleaning out some closets. Unfortunately however, they were not my own (even though they could REALLY use a good cleanse..). Quite the opposite actually: I went to Clean Closet, and took a few pieces off other people’s hands, all the while adding some lovely extra clutter to my own wardrobe. The things one does to help others… :) But all kidding aside, don’t you just love these kinds of initiatives? Fashion victims getting together and swapping/sharing/selling… Read more »

I love stories.  People, places and objects with a story fascinate me. When I was a kid I used to stare out of the car window at the houses flashing by, and imagine a life for the families living inside.  Even now, I like to indulge in the occasional people watching session from a sunny terrace (with a nice cocktail or glass of bubbles in hand, obviously :) ) and wonder about the life stories of people hurrying or strolling… Read more »
