It's summer time and it's time for loving!!!
My sister and me went for a picnic yesterday. We found this cute spot by the water, which was really fun, but pretty hot, no shadow at all. But it was so relaxing tough....... Summer is so fun when you have nothing on your mind!! Ignore my hair in the photos :) my bangs were just a bit too hot at the moment.
I found the perfect Barbie for the occasion, Picnic Barbie. Such a pretty outfit :)!!
I'm enjoying summer so much right now. No obligations whatever, no school, no work..... just VACATION!!!!! I'm so excited to leave for Southern France in 2 weeks. It's gonna be so much fun. But until then I'm going to keep enjoying myself!! And I feel like going for a picnic.....yummy things and shiny weather.
Here are some detail pictures of my dress from graduation.... I love it so much !!! My hair was loose though for graduation. I tried to make curls but the curlers they weren't in long enough so they kind of looked ridiculous. Now it's time to look for a job :) it's gonna be an exciting hunt I hope!? Let's take a walk to the future!
Today I'm graduating!! I'm so excited. The suspense yesterday was big but when they told me I passed everything you can't believe how happy I was. So tonight I can wear a new dress I bougth this week especially for graduation :). It's a great 50s dress. I'll put picture up later :) but tonight I'm going to enjoy my first night as a part of the real world :).
The fair on tuesday was fun. I got to enjoy good food and 6 good companiens. I'm always fascinated with all the pretty lights and the atmosphere at a fair.
I literally ate the world's largest hamburger ever :) but at the same time a very tasty one. And off course to seel the deal I had a cotton candy :). Who doesn't love cotton candy, pink sugar on a stick :) the best invention ever !!!
Tonight I'm going to the fair with my schoolfriends. We're graduating on thursday, so this will be our last evening together as fellow students.... I'm so excited to eat lot's and lot's of cotton candy, it's been so long since I've eating that. I'm sure it's gonna be so much fun.
This was yesterdays outfit..... One of my favourite skirts ever, underneath it is actually a dress, but it's a litte bit too short I think, but it makes a beautiful blouse. So maybe I'm going to shorting it, so I can use it above skirts as well. The combination of red and blue can never go wrong. All American colours.... jolly and fifties. Finally the sun is shining again in Belgium..... time for summer.
Some new thrift founds from last monday... I was in love with the shoes the minute I walked into the shop...they were placed onto a cabinet and it was like I heard "haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa" the sounds of angels calling for the pretty shoes :) so I just couldn't resist. At only 14 € I was a great find. The dress has a beautiful neckline and the print is so fun. Yippie I didn't have a light blue dress yet :). The bow is from H&M (only 3 € for 2).
I watch Edward Scissorhands a couple of days again.... I forgot how much I liked the movie. There's kind off a 50s feel in the movie. The neighborhoud, the cars, the clothes, the coulours..... I just like it all. Off course the movie being a Tim Burton movie, that's another reason why I like the movie. Tim Burton makes these wonderfull fantasizing movies..... like for example The Nightmare before Christmas. The houses and the cars in the street kind of remind me of a 50s pastel coloured Villeroy & Boch porcelain... Such pretty colours.... happy making colours.
Don't we all love leopard..... I absolutely adore the girl in the picture. Her full red hair and the marvelous leopard bikini. Hopefully I'm going to look good too in my own leopard bikini and my red hair. I'm sure I'll feel pretty..... it's hardly impossible not to look nice in leopard. The bikini is H&M, it fits perfectly......hopefully I can wear it soon, because the sun ain't shining much here lately in Belgium.
Some details of my own room. I find it my own vintage paradise. You see some of my collection of design books, vintage purses, vintage tin cans. The perfect jewelry box made out of sheer and embroidery, it's the cutest thing I've ever owned.
Desining the future..........
My furniture design is finally done!!!! I'm so proud of myself :) it just looks amazing. If I can say it myself. Holiday is almost here !! The pictures underneath this is a side cabinet, 2 of them, along side a chimney piece.
Just some pictures of today's outfit. The dress that I'm wearing is one of the dresses I bought 2 weeks ago in the thrift shop where everything was 2€. Luckuly I found it, because it was hidden between the mens section :) but I got it anyways. I didn't even have to alter it :).
The hairclip is new as well. It brightens up a boring hairdo in a second. The bottom of the dress has a lace border which makes it extra pretty and girly at the same time.
