Meet Me and Maria
Meet “Me and Maria”, quite possibly the cutest Belgian online store out there. Kaat Ramboer, owner of the shop, spends all of her time hunting down the prettiest dresses, jewelry, tops and skirts. Ain’t no mountain high, ain’t no valley low, because last Summer she went to the States to gather all kinds of pretty stuff for the new collection. Floral dresses, pleated skirts and golden bird necklaces are just a few of the items Me and Maria sells. The red line through the collection is the vintage feel every item exudes.
The season sale is now up, so I suggest you run over to Me and Maria to take a look. I’m wearing the Night Dreamer dress, a dark blue satin dress with pretty broderie anglaise details. It’s priced down to only €60 now so go get it!
On another note: I’ve managed to do some online sale shopping! Thanks to the great recommendations from my twitter friends I discovered some online shops that were new to me. The online stores that are now the proud owner of my address and visa information are Monki, Urban Outfitters and Nelly. I made a pretty collage of my newly scored items that I’ll upload in another post – I’m saving up posts like a crazy coupon lady but these are hard times for a blogger, what with school and all. My first exam is a week from now, my second in a week and a day from now and my third in a week and a day and a day from now. THAT’S RIGHT, THREE IN A ROW. Oh god.
These pictures were made in front of the Museum of Fine Arts in Antwerp by fellow blogger Anouk. We met up in the pouring rain to take pictures – not our best idea. I really wanted to show you guys this dress, but I needed to find a way to make it suitable for the daytime (read: freezing cold). So I just threw on a see-trough shirt and my furry vest to keep me warm. I felt a bit like one of the Amish people with the shirt underneath – stepping out of my comfort zone – but it could have been worse, right? I could have looked like this for example.
