Take a ‘bow’ for Karolien Verstraeten

11 Nov

About a month ago I met the lovely Karolien Verstraeten at DSGNRMRKT Hasselt (read my blogpost about it!). We had a great talk there about the collection, I put on some of her clothes, etc. It just clicked (only my wallet wasn’t really working along, but anywayzzz). She told me she was opening a store in Antwerp very soon and that she would send me an invitation, and violà:

There it was. So I called my baking buddy Karlien to go visit her shop at Kaasstraat, Antwerp (right next to cinema Cartoons). Tadaaaa:


The shop resembles Karolien’s collection: it’s classy, sober , feminine and finished with cute details.

After a nice catching up chitchat and of course the indispensable glass of cava, me & Karlien started putting on some outfits. And oh my, were they pretty! Karolien’s partner Sebastien was happy to take some shots, so it kinda turned out into a spontaneous photoshoot. Love it! :)(Thanks again for that!)

This one is a new piece of the collection:

A gorgeous longsleeve black jumpsuit . I swear when you put it on you do not wanna take it off ever again. It is such a comfortable fabric! Mind the nice back detail as well. Also check the nice white jumpsuit Karolien is wearing here. It’s a different fabric, slightly thicker, but also really sexy with the short sleeves!

The lovely Karlien put on a supercute outfit. Normally you should wear a white three quarter sleeve top underneath it, which we didn’t have, but we tried to make it work:

Next up, a classy working girl outfit:

Adore the creamy pink combo with the brown below.

This one right here screams “Chanel chique” to me:

A gorgeous black dress with a white bow and back opening. Perfect for a day at work or a nice family dinner.

And finally, a true party/summerdress:


This one is a true eye catcher. Sexy, light, sophisticated and yet very cute! You might wanna go home with someone after wearing it, because it takes a carefull hand to open up all the buttons on the back ;).

You can go and visit Karolien’s shop on Friday and Saturday, she’ll be happy to help you.

Or you can already have a sneak peek on her website: www.karolienverstraeten.com

I’m sure you’ll go home wearing a bow ….

(Major thanks to Sebastien for the pictures, Karolien for the help & Karlien for being such a great model ;))
