Madame D



Hi ladies! Let me introduce you to my new 'baby', the DELVAUX Madame! Which I've been dreaming of for so long. For quite some time the brand Delvaux regain my heart by giving new life to their classics. Being nearly 200 years old, it's the world's oldest luxury label. For as long as I can remember my grandmother had a Delvaux bag and in fact, pretty much every other grandmother I know in Belgium proudly carries one. Now 10 years later, I suddenly catch myself thinking these bags are pretty awesome and I wouldn’t mind having one myself!! :D After seeing them on celebrities like Sienna Miller, Olivia Palermo, Katie Holmes etc. I went to the boutique to see them in real! It was love at first sight!! The Madame bag is all about simple, sophisticated and tasteful luxury. It's less bling and more like a subtle hint at a fashion-forward person who knows how to pick the finer things in life without needing to flaünt them. Delvaux still produce by hand on a small scale (just around 7000 bags a year, which is just a fraction of what Chanel or Hermès produce, for example). This is making the bags even more special, and looking at my grandmother’s trusty little handbag she’s carried around forever, those bags are beautiful and timeless. 

And at last but not least, Slit Maxi Dresses are my newest obsession. I purchased this maxi skirt from River Island a couple of months ago but I haven't had a chance to wear it until now. I remember that my husband's eyes almost popped out when I first tried the dress and he asked me if I was going to wear it outside?! :D Well, I have to admit, it's quite sexy... but in a good way! :D (Rule number one, when wearing a split skirt or dress: never wear a top that reveals too much cleavage, to avoid looking vulgar.) They are great, very easy to wear, comfy, stylish, and super versatile. During the day I like to throw a biker jacket over the dress and my biker boots to make the look more casual, just like I did today. When it comes to the evening look, all you need is megaheels and a cute sequin clutch and let the dress speak for itself, it's a guaranteed showstopper. ;)
