Get your discount @ Solden

20 Dec

Dear readers,

Christmas is almost here, huray ! It’s the perfect time of the year to get together with your loved ones to share a good meal, lovely conversations and of course a few presents too!

But some of us do not have the time nor courage to go visit the crowded shopping streets and malls these days for those presents and a party outfit. However, a simple solution is at hand in the form of buying your presents online! Webshops to the rescue !

Since right after Christmas the winter sales are also starting, I  think it is such a shame to pay full price for my outfit/gifts while a week later every item will be discounted…

Also for this ‘problem’ a handy solution has been created: what if you could get discounts for your favorite online shops like Asos, YOOX, 3 Suisses , Zalando, La Redoute (and much more) every day of the year? Sounds like a pretty good deal to me !

I discovered a wonderful site  Solden where all the valid discount codes for your favorite shops have been put together, so you can easily find every code you need to claim your online discounts. Even better, you can subscribe to their newsletter and you’ll receive all the discount codes per email !

Below are some items from my personal Xmas wishlist, which are all available with whopping reductions from 10 to 50% on retail prices.

So what are you waiting for, shop shop shop ! 😉

YOOX – 15% extra discount with every online purchase

Black silk embellished top from 3.1 Phillip Lim

YOOX Phillip Lim 138E bis

Original price 275€ –> Current price 138€ –> With the discount code from Solden this top only costs 117,30€

La Redoute – 35% discount on every purchase


Purple pleated dress from Esprit : original price 69.95€ –>Discount price : 45.47€

Zalando – 10% discount on every purchase above 50€



Green parka from Vero Moda : original price 129.95€ –> Discount price : 116.96€

Blue cable knit sweater from Levi’s : original price 84.95€ –> Discount price : 76.46€

Happy online shopping !

With love, Nona

Vans x Kenzo restyle the Era!

7 May

Dear readers,

Fashion brand Kenzo has participated in a new & very limited edition collab with sneaker brand Vans for Spring/Summer 2012.

After a previous succesfull collaboration with Hello Kitty (read all about it here) , Kenzo was the next one in line who’s been given the opportunity to restyle the timeless Era model from Vans to their own vision.

The skate sneaker has been pimped by Kenzo in happy colors like green, blue, white, red (as also seen on the catwalks for Spring/Summer 2012) and distinctive netprints.

In total there are 7 different colour combinations for men and women. My favorite pairs below.

The limited edition Era sneakers will be available from mid May 2012 at all Kenzo shops and the Kenzo website.
They’re also available in selected shops like Opening Ceremony, Colette  & Harvey Nichols. Prices range from 90 euro and up.

Which is your favorite pair?

With love, Nona

Naf Naf Brussels : Cocktail time !

6 May

Dear readers,

It seems to me that  many  highstreet brands have been giving their existing (Belgian) shops a well deserved make-over in the last few months, a new trend perhaps as a response to the ongoing crisis?

Esprit re-opened their shop on the Meir in Antwerp according to their new concept, which makes the customer feel more relaxed, like they’re at home.

Diesel has also jumped on the bandwagon with the introduction of their renewed Diesel shop in Antwerp and now there’s also Naf Naf who decided to give all their shops a new make-over 1 by 1.

I showed you my purchases from Naf Naf already in a previous blogpost, but I still owe you some pictures from the new shop opening!

So, without any further delay, here is the report for the new Naf Naf shop at Rue Neuve!

To open the renewed shop at Rue Neuve in style, Naf Naf decided to organize a cocktailparty for the Belgian press and bloggers.

There were many fellow bloggers present (always fun!), lovely appetizers (macarons with goatcheese, anyone?) and good music from a DJ, so I can safely say that this was a very successfull opening party!

Below some atmosphere pictures, so you can judge for yourself!

My shoplog of the week

2 May

Dear readers,

I’ve been a naughty girl shop-wise. Last week there was not one single day where I wasn’t spotted in one or more shops, eagerly putting my creditcard into the machine at the cash register.

To share the joy I experienced buying my items (and to hear that I didn’t went too far in my shopping madness from you too!), I decided to make a little shoplog.

The first splurge moment I experienced was last Thurday evening at the Naf Naf relaunch party at Rue Neuve in Brussels.

Almost all the Spring/Summer items were very on-trend (and at the same time on my wishlist), but I somehow managed to keep myself a bit under control with as a result: a cute white print top, a green knee skirt with pockets (practical), a pair of widefit shorts in an Africa-inspired print, a blue dress with gold collar and finally a turquoise belt.


On Sunday I was invited to Maasmechelen Outlet Village, where I started a quest for the perfect accessory. The final loot included 2 studded belts from Talking French, a gorgeous army green leather satchel from Fossil and the green print Talking French dress I also wore in my last outfitpost.


But, the shopping still continued on Monday during my lunchbreak from work. In my short break, i managed to get to F21 (green polkadot top), Mango (2 Tshirts) and Ici Paris XL ((perfume and nail polish).


Narciso Rodriguez has made a limited edition summer version of his iconic scent For Her, named For Her Délicate. I was already a loyal fan of this fragrance, but the new version is much better for summer, a little more subtle and fruity.


I also indulged in some nailpolish from YSL, called Manicure Couture Les Fauves, which consists of 2 shades (black and gold) you put on your nails together to get a shattered texture effect. I can’t wait to put this new technology on my nails as I have read much about it but very curious how it will look on my own hands.


The last beauty call was a refill for another perfume I adore: Chanel‘s Chance Eau Tendre. When the shop assistant from Ici Paris XL told me that Eau Tendre now exists in a handy travel spray package of 30ml, I didn’t hesitate, as it easily fits into my purse and I got two extra refill bottles. Perfume addict, anyone?

For the rest of the month, I’ll be keeping a low profile on the shopping market, my wallet needs some rest as it can take no more right now. Now it’s time to let all my new babies see the light of day as quickly as possible, they deserve some proper airtime!

New outfitposts with my new items will quickly follow, if the weather stays as good as it was today, at least!

With love, Nona

Dear readers,

Maasmechelen Village invited me last week to come discover their new collections as they are currently organizing a special campaign , called Art of the Detail. You can read all about it in my previous post.

They asked me to look for my perfect accessory for this season and boy, it didn’t take me long to find it!

Actually (typically me), I opted for 2 accessories which can be worn perfectly together. At Fossil, I found this to-die-for green leather satchel, which is a style you never can go wrong with if you ask me. The army green colour can be combined with many pop colours and over the top prints, so I may count this baby as a good asset to my current wardrobe.

The other accessory which immediately stole my heart is a thin studded belt in tan leather from Talking French… I heart it so much that I decided to also buy the belt in blue… With those outlet prices, I didn’t even think twice about it.

To put the look together I decided I also needed a new dress to combine the accessories with (well, I didn’t really need it, you know, but when a girl is on a roll…). This new baby comes from Talking French aswell,  love the print and colour combo. Trans-seasonal dress : check!

I had some fun today with the boyfriend and went on our very first ‘location shoot’ (sounds fancy if you say it like that, better than I walked down the street to the tunnel, ha). Below you can see the result.


Jacket – Object C.I./ Dress – Talking French/ Belt – Talking French/ Leather bag – Fossil/ Sunglasses – adidas Originals Eyewear/ Boots – Sacha

The pearly nailpolish is from Rituals new ‘Urban Chic’ make-up range, I really love the way it sparkles in the sun! It is also very easy to apply and comes at a reasonable price, a win-win situation!

Do you like the new accessories? What is your must-have accessory this season?

OUTFIT POST – Afterhours fun

6 Oct

Dear readers,

Today my colleague Dorothée and I decided to do an crazy impromptu afterhours outfitshoot at work, as I am the proud owner of yet another beautiful dress I recently bought at JBC. Their Fall collections are very trendy yet comfortable and affordable at the same time, so I really had to hold myself back or I would have bought so many more items, if not the entire collection. JBC used to have a somewhat dusty image but in my opinion they have seriously stepped up their game in the last few years, initiating cool campaigns and collaborations with Belgium’s finest, such as Walter Van Beirendonck, Christophe Coppens and (my personal favourite) Chris Janssens. I also shopped a  new item from the new capsule collection from Chris Janssens by JBC, I will share some pics of that item later on.

It was a really fun and original way to end a working day like this, as Dorothée kept saying things like ‘Jump forward from behind the curtain’, or ‘Put on some glasses’ , ‘Stand next to the dolls’. I was very willing to oblige as I am known to be a bit crazy too sometimes 😉

Below the results of our little shoot, do you like my new dress from JBC?

With love, Nona
