Snubbing Lanvin for H&M

What kind of person buys the Designer for H&M range? And don't tell me it's people interested in fashion but with not enough money to afford the real stuff... Cause I don't believe that.
If you're interested in fashion and you have taste, you can find your style at any price. Don't waste your money on these collections, be resourceful, be imaginative and please, don't be a sheep.
Last weekend, I've been looking online for an evening dress (I have this special evening in December) And yes, OK, I can spend a bit of money on it. But one thing is for sure, I will not spend 200 euros on a Lanvin for H&M dress.
Look at alternatives, they'll usually have a better quality, better cuts and will be more original. And you won't be remembered as "the girl with the Lanvin for H&M dress anno 2010". And don't get me started over the shoes :-)

Above all, it's not worth being stabbed for (New York, last Saturday).

Fraikin's Friday Fashion Photo Booth (7) - Hooded

According to the french Belgian blog The Fashionalists, being 'hooded' is one of the big trends of this winter... So I tried it for this FFFPB but I couldn't help feel like a) an Easter bunny and also b) the virgin Mary. For some advice on knots and such, make sure to check out Liberty (of London) and their great videos The Liberty Way To Tie A Scarf.

Belstaff boots, leggings, Superdry sweater, black satin jacket and my mom's very old checkered scarf

Fraikin's Friday Fashion Photo Booth (6) - Marc Jacobs

This is a very special dress to me, I think it's the only dress I own with a not-cinched waist. Despite that, it's amazing in any circumstance. In this case, casual, at the office...

Marc by Marc Jacobs black and blue checkered dress with clasps, MiuMiu wedges
and blue thights, Ise Miyake bracelet

Fraikin's Friday Fashion Photo Booth (5) - It's like summer...

17°C during the day, 14°C at night: it's incredibly soft weather for Belgium this time of year. So I'm still enjoying short sleeves for a bit...

Skinny jeans, McQ waistcoat, short sleeves checkered shirt by Polo Jeans, Ellen Verbeek shoes and the must have of last summer (and a few summers before that too) a white watch
(in this case, Ice Watch)
