People and things to get inspired by...

Antwerp is not that big, in fact, you can visit our city easily by feet or rent a bike (and a good lock)...
That's why I love it so much...it's compact and has everything you want just a few steps apart. Beautiful shops fill the Nationalestraat where you can find Marlies Dekkers underwear, hairdresser The Cliènt for VIPS and celebrities, Yohji Yamamoto and Fred de la Brétoniere shoes and boots.
At the end of the Nationalestraat you turn right just before the big post office and at the end of this little lane you'll see the APC and Knapp Targa shops. Vanessa Bruno is one of my favourite designers they sell here and I'm very into her bags with glittery details...
Must add one on my summer-must-have list.
For it-places like Strantwerpen in Summer, we must find ourselves a perfect Fendi bag to complete our collection of bags and clutches (on my to-do-list for 2009). Fendi can be found at Verso, Lange Gasthuisstraat (pop in at their café first to have an apple mojito before you hit the shop itself).
Go online for that something extra nobody will find before you do ; modcloth.com and click and order that chasing feathers bangle !

the size of antwerp sounds just like amsterdam.
Marlies Dekkers is doing really good, since she is under the wings of a decent manager. Go Go!
