SEVENTIES ZARA DRESS & ESSENTIEL ANTWERP BAG

blogueuse mode belge
I had never been to one of Emilie's (My Little Fashion Diary) blogging classes before, so I thought the photography one would be interesting to check out. For the longest time ever I shot blog photos on automatic or had them taken for me. Usually by Christine, and occasionally by my boyfriend. The point is that I wasn't sure how extensive my knowledge of photography was. What I found out is that I had actually learned a fair amount from the times I had more competent people take photos for the blog. The class was also an absolutely fantastic opportunity to meet other bloggers in Belgium, because the class was hosted at the Smets store in Brussels. It's always great fun to meet other like-minded people!

It was at this class that I found out about the brand Essentiel Antwerp. I had not heard about it before and I was incredibly curious to go check it out after I was told that there was a store in Leuven. As soon as I walked in, my eyes went straight for this bucket bag. I have banged on about this before but boy do I love my pockets and compartments on bags. There was a choice between black, brown and this stone-pink colours. Of course, my immediate thought was "do I play it safe and go for black?" but there was something about this rough-looking pink bucket bag that was calling out "LOVE ME. TAKE ME HOME".... So I did. It's so practical as a day bag because it's really easy to whip out a train or bus pass from the outer pockets. I can certainly see myself using this throughout the year to brighten up an outfit.

Here, I decided to pair the bag with a slightly subdued seventies look. If you walk into any highstreet store or browse any clothing brand Instagram accounts, you'll see that the seventies trend is very much here to stay. For me the denim flares, brown suedes and flowing florals are all a bit too much. Some people pull it off really well with high levels of sass, but for me? It's just not my thing. I've often mentioned here on the blog about my monochromatic tendencies in outfit combinations but you know what? To hell with that. I like to think I'm a fairly mellow person and that tends to reflect in my choice of colour palette - or lack thereof... I love the casual and laidback look of the seventies trend but it has been overwhelming until I found this beaut! It's right up my alley. It sits nicely on the chest and so a "hello" to my new go-to LBD is in order.
