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 ! 😉

Vivienne Westwood Anglomania X Lee Jeans

28 Aug

I love denim and I love avantgarde design, so imagine my joy when I discovered last year that dame Vivienne Westwood went into a collaboration agreement with denim brand Lee- truly a dream come true! Her eye for shape, colourways and cut combined with my favorite fabric ever makes for some must-have items for sure! Meanwhile I’m the proud owner of the ‘Drunk’ waistcoat -I had to order it from a shop in Los Angeles, but hey, whatever- and am frantically looking for  pair of the ‘Banana’ jeans for men with a drop crotch, almost like harem pants. Sold out worldwide, but I will get my hands on them one day. The collections are for sale in selected Lee stores, on ASOS.com and various other websites. Do you like these styles?

Love & light,

Ninette

OUTFIT POST – Letting out my inner geek

22 Jul

Dear readers,

After more than a week of  ‘radio silence on Flemish Fashion Freaks due to no internet acces while on holiday, I finally got back to the real world (WITH my precious internet that is) to put up a post on my new outfit I wore a few days ago. .. Just in time me thinks as I started to show rehab symptons while away, in the form of harassing non-suspecting hotel and restaurant owners to let me use their computer/internet.

As I’m normally more the bohemian or rock chick type of dresser, I wanted to try something else this time, something completely new to me, and as I will begin working again at the start of September, an office-proof outfit that’s still hip and happening seemed the only valid option to go for right now.

I decided to go for the Geek Chic look that has been rocking the streets and magazines for quite some time , as this way I could finally put my cool animalprint glasses from Vans to good use ! I combined it with my longsleeved denim shirt to add a little edge to the mix, to prevent the outfit from becoming TOO goody-goody-two-shoes.

Is this a trend you like or hate? Please do not hesitate to share your opinion with us, as we’re very curious about what you think!

Now, enough chit-chatter, I hope you like the outfit pix!  Sorry for the bad quality of some photos:  I was forced to take them inside as the weather was not on my side during the shoot (read: thunderstorms and the occasional lightening flash).

With love, Nona

Festival fever !

14 May

We haven been really spoilt during the last couple of weeks regarding the hot weather, so I think many people are eagerly awaiting the first big Belgian festivals to kick off, starting with Werchter at the end of June.

In the U.S.A. they have been rocking the festival site already at Coachella, where lots of upcoming festival fashion trends were spotted like lots of florals, denim, big sunglasses,colourpopping handbags, maxi dresses and fringed sandals.

The temperatures were sky-high during this simmering hot edition of the Coachella festival weekend, as you can tell from the outfits.

Let’s hope it will be the same here for Werchter and start thinking about dressing accodingly!

 

S.Oliver-print shirt-69€

S.Oliver – white shorts – 39,95€

Asos -sunglasses- 15,38€

S.Oliver – straw hat- 19,95€

S.Oliver – flower short – 49,95€

Asos- brogue boot- 64,10€

S.Oliver- floral scarf- 34,95€

S.Oliver – denim dress – 59,95€

Asos – suede tassel sandals – 44,90€

I really want her bag! But this cool similar bag in popping yellow from S.Oliver(35,95€) will be a good satisfying alternative for me.

I spotted some very nice summer pieces from S.Oliver online, that are very up and going with the current festival trends at Coachella and -we like- at reasonable prices, so that you have some extra budget left to spend on the festival site 😉

My personal favourite items are the two jumpsuits from this summer’s collection: in my opinion a jumpsuit is a perfect allrounder for those days when you don’t have a lot of time to decide what to wear. just choose a ves and some nice shoes and you are ready to go!

These pieces are also easy to combine with almost every vest, shirt, and accessorie in your closet! You can dress them up with a blazer and pumps or go for a more laiback look combined with some Allstars.

S.Oliver – khaki playsuit- 29,95€

S.Oliver- denim playsuit- 59,95€

For accessories and shoes, ASOS remains the ultimate walhalla for complementing a simple yet casual-chic outfit any way/style you wish to go for. I am very much in love with their black suede tassel sandals, which were a big trends already last year but continue to reign the streets and festival sites during the summer of 2011.

So which outfit/piece do you like or hate ? What is your ultimate “cannot go wrong” festival outfit?

With love, Nona
