Shop till you drop: The shopaholic in me is alive and kickin’

Shop till you drop: The shopaholic in me is alive and kickin’

I love fashion all year round. Every second of every hour of every day. There are moments, however, when my inner fashion diva goes in absolute fashion overdrive. When a very cool trend hits the runways or even when I just see a very awesome outfit online, I simply can’t stop thinking about it. I literally have dreams about it. Dreams of me wearing said awesome outfit and totally rocking it. This continuous “daydreaming” (a very euphemistic term for the scarier word “hallucination” 😉 ) will not stop until I have that outfit hanging in my closet.

I am currently going through such a fashion frenzy and the leading role in my very own Hollywood fashion movie daydream (besides a very stylish me) is the outfit above from River Island. I want it so bad, I get heart palpitations merely thinking of it.

I am a huge River Island fan. Sometimes I think this shop was created with the sole purpose of providing me with clothes.  However, there are two tiny little issues:

a)      What if my local River Island shop doesn’t have the outfit? :

 I saw the clothes on the River Island website, so there is no absolute guarantee that I will actually find them in the River Island store in Antwerp. More importantly, they have to have my size! I can hear you all thinking: “ Just order them online, you idiot!”

Good point. But I prefer trying clothes on first, before buying them. (Oh God, I sound like my mother!)

b)      What if the clothes don’t fit and I look nothing like the cool chick I had in mind?

No matter how hard you may want a certain outfit, sometimes when you put it on, it just SUCKS!

So this is where you come in, dear readers! I want you all to knock on wood/ cross your fingers/ light a candle/ pray that the very cool outfit will end up in my closet! Maybe we could all do a cyber- telekinesis-séance kinda thing?  Who’s with me?! 😉


Ps: The shoes and necklace are not from River Island. It was just to give you an idea of what I would wear it with.

Prince Charming sucks

Prince Charming sucks

Although every woman will try to deny it, we all still believe in the boy-meets-girl fairy tale story.

Why wouldn’t we? A handsome prince. Love at first sight. Happily-Ever-After… Every woman secretly hopes she will be treated as a princess, with a knight in shining armor as good-looking as Ryan Gosling and a jewelry box as large as a walk-in closet. (Although that last part might just be me ^^)

Our fairy tale dreams are often tempered by the harsh reality that life has to offer. Men simply don’t climb up ivory towers (Because they don’t know where to find one?) or travel across the country to return your shoe. (Because they think we would simply buy another pair?) I hate to bring it to you, but life is not a romantic comedy.

Life is much more than that! Life is complicated. Beauty, love and hope walk hand in hand with pain, hate and disappointment. At times life can even seem more like a nightmare than a fairy tale.

But don’t ever let this bother you, fellow princesses! If you want your version of a fairy tale, CREATE IT! Don’t ever stop dreaming. Never lose hope. Everything is possible, as long as you’re willing to work for it.

So cherish your dreams! Cherish your hopes! Just remember: Even if you can’t find prince charming, that doesn’t mean you should feel less of a princess.

(and besides, who needs prince charming when you can have Ryan Gosling in your DVD player? 😉 )
