When I & rsquo; I bought it I thought trench : Whaaa this thing gives me 10 years in the face, j’ai l’air d’une dame ! With shoulder pads, toussaaaaaa c & rsquo; barely I recognized my figure in the mirror.

There are times like this when I become aware of time passing, I grandis, I am no longer a kid. I didn & rsquo; even more offended when m & rsquo; d & rsquo called madame, elsewhere, c & rsquo; maybe the wedding* approaching it makes me…

* Ouééé I know I do not tell you much, j & rsquo; like the supsemse :)

So… And then you can imagine that & rsquo; to Antwerp on mange aussi, and eat well and more !! It was therefore on our sacred drive best addresses, that & rsquo; n & rsquo it; unfortunately not all tested, but I keep warm in my d & rsquo book; address :


(Small market 1, 2000 Antwerp – plan)


We don & rsquo; have not eaten there, but who knew Yara confirmed that c & rsquo; was a terrific place to dine for both the & rsquo; mood prices.


(Schoenmarkt 12, 2000 Antwerp – plan)


There have… We tested and believe me it's worth it. J & rsquo; ve tasted two waffles, a hot cherries, una another “Desired lille” with a scoop of ice cream and marshmallow taste c & rsquo; was a treat…. Rhaaaa right now j & rsquo; want one !! The batter is light and crispy, best waffles in my life !

A really lovely place and I regret not being able to m & rsquo; stop longer. Their specialty : le ginger tea, that m & rsquo; made curious I must say. L & rsquo; warm atmosphere is great, j & rsquo; & rsquo c staying there; certainly.

I don & rsquo; & rsquo have that; a picture of my meal, but not the place (pity) which was exceptional : designed by the & rsquo; architect Bob Van Reeth, lunch there almost onto the river. It has wonderful eaten course :)

After this meal, l & rsquo; tourist board has awarded us a price for our morning hunt. My team had for each person a voucher of € 200 to spend in one of the shops visited, yeaaaah ! I thus paid a sublime pair of boots at Elsa, I will certainly show you very soon.


That's for the weekend my friends, practical issues now. Antwerp, c’est simple, just take a Thalys to Paris Gare du Nord and you are there in 2 hours. One can easily go for the day only (but a little short), if you stay a weekend there are a host of excellent hotels. L & rsquo; tourism office had housed us Leopold Hotel which was fine : cozy rooms, park view, and not far from the station, pratique ;), I'm sure after that & rsquo; there are plenty of & rsquo; locations slightly cheaper and just as nice.



Yes I know bad bouhouuuu, I don & rsquo; have hardly posted the week. The cold that s & rsquo; is too brutally installed was right in my motivation… For I & rsquo; taaaaas had things to tell you about this great weekend spent in Antwerp, so much that I did not feel the courage to m & rsquo; put before aujourd & rsquo; hui. Hop, Let's go !

L & rsquo; & rsquo Office of Tourism; Antwerp organized this “fashion week end” in order to discover the richness of the city to 8 bloggers d & rsquo; Amsterdam, London and Paris : Susie, Steve, Renée, Wound, Tony, Frédérique, Alix and me. J & rsquo; had already visited the city & rsquo; last year and I & rsquo; had had a big crush, return in such good company was a pleasure !

We spent the first night in a small picturesque snack, where the fries with sauce and beer flowed in streams ! A great moment shared with all the small team this weekend, and a good way to make up for the day Saturday was busy.

Divided into 3 teams, we had the following morning to discover a certain number & rsquo; locations and bring trophies pictures : l & rsquo; opportunity to discover charming boutiques, owls restaurants and the city and its architecture…

Here is a small selection of my favorite places :

The famous glove of the city welcomed us with open arms to show us her little merchandise d & rsquo; except. By entering this tiny place, we think of all these elegant ladies who have crossed the threshold of the door since 1884. Large cardboard boxes meticulously arranged in beautiful wooden lockers contain treasures…

A charming saleswoman s & rsquo; then grabs my hand, who is “small and therefore perfect for presentation”. She throws a look and m & rsquo; Announces “6 ½”, then looks me up and head to choose the gloves of my dreams. Et is whaaaaa, c & rsquo; is amazing how pretty you dress gloves, I don & rsquo; & rsquo have ceased; thinking about since I came back, next time if I have to do that back & rsquo; d & rsquo a thing Antwerp, it will be a nice pair of gloves, bad faith :

When s & rsquo; this is approached shoe store, j & rsquo; d have & rsquo; winced first… Since the & rsquo; outside, she didn & rsquo; s & rsquo had not, frankly frolicsome air with its wooden storefront, the lighting a bit old and a bit banal showcase. Yes but now, Antwerp it is better to take a closer look… In m & rsquo; focusing on shoes I realize that I'm actually in a sublime shop, chic but with the d & rsquo button and eccentricity that characterizes contemporary Belgian creation. A gem for the connoisseur that I am not !

Another shop that I & rsquo; have underestimated since & rsquo; outside, barely j & rsquo; there would have thrown a look if you do l & rsquo me was not shown. Yet in & rsquo; Inside we find wonders : j & rsquo; tried 3 d & rsquo pairs of shoes; sublime OCCAZ : a pair of miu miu-50 €, a pair of offset marc jacobs € 60 and a pair of gray derbies Dries Van Noten 70 €. Almost new course… After selecting difficulty with the pair I m & rsquo; emparerai I go to the checkout… Where unfortunately they do not take the CB. No time d & rsquo; go to a distributor, I left not without a small tear in the corner of & rsquo; eye. The next time, I will be decked !!

…Following tomorrow !!
