Such FUN events passing by in September! Together with the lovely Ruth I had the honour to host the Pinko Ladies Night at Antwerp Fashion Festival last week. I wore this gorgeous ladylike outfit by Pinko (how pretty is that skirt?), while Ruth went for a more casual interpretation of the brand. We had a great time browsing through the gorgeous winter collection (helloooo parkas), sipping from the most delicious cocktails and of course moving to the beats of female DJ duo Hits&Tits! Things got pretty out of hand crazy in the end with people twerking to Kevin Lyttle's Turn Me On and undressing shop mannequins, which made it quite the memorable fashion party! Not only did I want to share the pictures of the event with you, I also wanted to let you know that you can shop the new Pinko collection online from today on. Make sure to check out the lookbook and drop by the Antwerp store at Huidevetterstraat 42!

NEUVILLE c/o backpack ⎜ CONVERSE sneakers ⎜ & OTHER STORIES ring & bracelet

You guys were super enthusiast about the sneak peek of this outfit last week, so I'm happy to share the full shoot with you today! Blog buddy Elien and I hadn't seen each other in ages and finally met up before the LEE event last Thursday. Next to sipping coffee and having a good chat we obviously had to take some outfit pictures as well, juuuuust like the old timez. Antwerp's finest street, the Volkstraat (aka our own little SoHo), was the ideal backdrop for this casual outfit. Because of all the fashion stuff happening that week I really enjoyed dressing down in a pair of boyfriend jeans (YES, customized!!), a gorgeous sweatshirt and flat shoes (for God's sake). I wore heels twice that week. TWICE. My feet have been wrapped in bandage and foot lotion ever since. Luckily this outfit was super comfy. Because of the cool backpack and baseball cap I might as well name it a back-to-school inspired look, right? I always try to look all classy and grown-up, but I usually end up looking like the cool 14 year old I never was. At least I got to experience that feeling for once... This post doesn't seem to go anywhere, but I hope you like the outfit and the photos! Gotta go now, important meetings, fun shootings and cool projects ahead! Have a great Wednesday and talk to you soon x

Wow guys, yesterday a super busy but extremely fun week came to an end! Besides having blog meetings, shootings, coffee dates, birthday parties and a trip to an amusement park, there were cool events to attend as well. Ruth and I had the honour to host the re-opening of the LEE store in Antwerp and I'm very excited to share this photo report with you! I caught up with my favourite co-bloggers, had a good laugh with my girlfriends and had an extensive fitting with expert Joop from Suitcase to find myself a brand new pair of jeans. Next to putting together a pretty outfit with my favourite pieces from the store, I was also dressed in the new LEE collection. Weird to see me in a fitted pencil skirt, right? It was denim and it looked hot, so I decided to just GO for it! Aight, I hope you like my little photo report :)

LA MAISON NEUVILLE c/o backpack ⎜ VILA c/o sweatshirt

Say hello to the most buttery soft leather backpack you've ever seen. I usually associate backpacks with A) my mom, or B) my twelve year old cousins. Ever since I had to carry a horrible, massive, square backpack all the way through high school I have had quite an aversion to this kind of bags. Luckily clich├ęs are here to break through, and after years I have finally managed to overcome my backpack-fear all because of this black beauty. It is handcrafted by La Maison Neuville, a Belgian leather goods brand that focuses on quality and a perfect finishing off. The designs are classic and timeless, but always with a fun twist. I chose one of their more edgy models, but I'm sure you fashion practitioners will love their furry bags and their sophisticated party bags as well! You can get yourself a beautiful Neuville bag for a price somewhere between €100-400, which is actually very affordable for a leather accessory being produced in high-quality leather tanneries from France, Italy and Spain. You can tell that I'm very much in love and proud to be showing off a Belgian product here on the blog! The good news is that you will be seeing more Neuville on Polienne this season! Like?

10704384_679447615475423_563131595885871949_o Here we go again! Our annual Bloggers Closet Sale at Antwerp Fashion Festival is becoming a real fun tradition, and this year it's time for a special outside edition. My fellow bloggers and I enjoy catching up with you while looking for a better home for our treasures. This time the focus of my little store will be on autumn and winter fashion, so tomorrow will be the perfect chance for you to update your wardrobe with some pretty coats, jumpers and bags. I will be there only from 14h until 17h, since I'm hosting the Pinko Ladies Night afterwards. I am happy to invite you to both events tomorrow: come shop my closet and stop by for a little drink in the evening! See you there then?
