Hi guys, This feels like writing you a goodbye letter, while it’s actually an enthusiastic “Hello”! After Ruth, I’ll be saying goodbye to The Merrymakers. This blog has been my home for the last 3 years, but all good things come to an end, so it’s time to move on. BUT I’m moving on to a better place, my new blog and online home: http://www.yayzine.com Everything I was doing over here on The Merrymakers will live on over at […]
Photos by Morgane Gielen The girls from Suriel and I, we keep ending up working together. And that’s no coincidence! We see eye to eye and enjoy every moment together, no matter how cold or crazy, because we know the result will be just what we’re looking for. So when they asked me to be their Sixties model for a shoot about the IKEA KLÄPPA butterfly chair from the ÅRGÅNG collection, I knew they’d end up making me feel like the most beautiful […]
I just couldn’t NOT do it. Make a Christmas wish list. I just couldn’t NOT fulfill all the clichés you expect from a girl like me when it comes to Christmas wish listings. Easy as pie, girls like me love: fashion, elegant books, stylish technology and ceramics in funny shapes. Oh…and I might have already ordered some of these for myself actually… In order of appearance: – Neon Boots: Shiny 4 – O’rèn Official: Belgique Belchique –> Don’t bother, already […]
I’m the enthusiast. You can take that in quite the 360° way. That’s why I also tend to fall for abundant fashion. The more, the merrier you could say. Hack, you only live once! And color and beauty make people smile! Plus, it’s part of my personality, so why should I tone that down? But that doesn’t mean I can’t appreciate the minimal brands of this world. But when I go to, let’s say COS, I do tend to pick […]
Last week, for the sake of Christmas research, I went on a field trip to Designer Outlet Roermond. Excited, but also a little sceptic, because I didn’t find outlet shopping to be my thing…up until Roermond that is! Read on to discover what persuaded me! The attentive readers probably spotted a few of the reasons in the picture of my purchases above… The challenge? Find Christmas gift ideas for the ones you love the most. When it comes to gifts, […]
Temperatures are finally dropping. Time to awaken your inner ice queen. In a wardrobe kind of way that is, nobody likes a frozen personality. High on my list: A winter crisp Delvaux. The “Ceci nest pas un Delvaux” Brillant in the maxi size, will keep safe all your winter essentials, even that huge LN Andes scarf, Mr. Big beanie and your daily thingamabobs along with your sense of humor. A raspberry red Simplissime tote will brighten up the greyest of days and […]
Winter is coming… So start prepping yourself! I’m practicing my faux fur look is this beauty from Scotch And Soda, hitting stores in September, I’ve been told. Wouldn’t mind spending all the frosty days to come in this soft furry friend… More autumn and winter friends in the spot lights on the blog, soon! xoxo Nathalie faux fur coat: Scotch And Soda / bag: Brillant X-Ray by Delvaux / pumps: Miu Miu / skinny: River Island Photos by Michiel.
If you haven’t read my introduction to the house of Delvaux yet, first head over to my previous post right here! Now in this post I’ll tell you why it’s a good idea to invest, yes it’s an investment, your money into a Delvaux, above all other designer bags. I have my fair share of designer bags carefully archived in my closet, but none are more precious to me than my vintage Delvaux and my most recent buy, the Delvaux […]
Whoever said baseball caps are not elegant, got it all wrong. Pour some long hair, the right make-up, bling and a cut-out back in the mix and it’ll make up for some interesting fashionable results! Why the 73 you say? That’s the birth year of Belgian Silis designer, Karen Busse. 41 and damn proud of it! Let’s put it on a cap. I like her attitude. cap: Silis / jumper: Asos / Ring: Diamanti Per Tutti Photos by Michiel.
