WEARING: American Apparel grid top, sheer patterned socks and see-through jelly heels / Zara skirt / vintage bag / Claire's sunnies
A few weeks ago, I was invited by Walkie Talkie for a Subbacultcha event in the American Apparel store in Antwerp, where German duo Easter held an exclusive showcase. I had a great time meeting new people and seeing familiar faces, drinking a few Seef beers and dancing to the poppy-electro synth sounds of Easter. Easter held a rather unique performance, with a lot of monotone singing and weird, funny lyrics such as "I see mushrooms being born out of shrimps". Subbacultcha made a cool aftermovie which can be found here.
I created a style story based on the American Apparel grid top and combined it with my striped Zara skirt, see-through jelly sandals and some sunflower accessories for the ultimate American Apparel look. Wearing a monochrome outfit is rare for me, but I feel good in it! What do you think about it?
I'm a born and raised Gent girl, but I've always had a weak spot for Antwerp. I love exploring its wide variety of stores, coffee bars, restaurants and cafés. Recently, I added the Vascobelo V-bar to my to-go list.
I got to know the premium coffee brand during the Pravda press days in April and I've fallen in love with the elegant branding and of course, the taste of its delicious brews. I met up with my friend Jan to work and chat in their recently opened coffee bar, which is located at De Grote Markt facing the city hall.
We were welcomed by lovely barista Anne-Cathérine, who has a very interesting interior design and art blog. Apparently we were already following each other on Instagram, what a small world it is! To be honest, this "I think I follow you on Instagram" thing has been happening a lot to me lately! She made us both a nice latté and gave us some explanation about the brand.
The people behind Vascobelo share the philosophy that coffee is more than just a drink, it's an experience. Vascobelo hosts apero events on Fridays, collaborates with jazz artists, the baristas wear pretty uniforms... You can even bring them to your event or office! Everything is worked out in detail and they definitely live up to their philosophy. I love it!
So next time you're in Antwerp, you know where to go!
