The past few weeks were quite busy, but in the best way possible!Since there’s always time for fashion I was invited to the bloggers day over at Fresh and went to check out the new and improved Verso store. Of course I went to university a lot too, but you guys don’t want to hear about that, now do you?
Since pictures tend to say more than a thousand words, here are some snapshots from the past days.
1 | Oona invited a group of bloggers to discover the two Fresh stores in Antwerp. I knew the first store, Fresh34, since I used to live right next door from it a few years ago. I remember walking by and staring at the beautiful garments in the shop window. Back then I was much more into fast fashion and quantity above quality, so I never actually bought anything there, but I did always love the silhouettes in the window display.
The bloggers day started in the most recent shop, Fresh15. Marie welcomed me and immediately gave me a big (but way fun) task: pick out all the items you like and style your own Fresh outfit. Whooo, best challenge ever! I picked my favourite pieces out of brands like April77 (pretty jeans!), Humanoid (pretty scarfs!) and Sessun (pretty everything!). After I finished my hunt throughout Fresh15 it was time to move a few streets down. I’d foreseen a short walk to the other store (hence the flat shoes), but on the contrary there where cabs waiting to take us to Fresh34. For a minute I felt like I was at some fashion week, but then reality struck and I remembered I was having a pretty cool evening right here in Antwerp as well!
Upon arrival at the store we were welcomed by mouth-watering snacks, sparkly drinks and French beats courtesy of Isolde Lasoen. I had a great evening and advice all of you to stop by a (or both) Fresh store when you’re in the neighbourhood.

2 | The night after my Fresh discovery I braved the Autumn cold and ventured outside to attend the Verso re-opening. The store got a full make-over and focuses even more on combining luxury glamour with casual wear. The basement now houses the new contemporary luxury department, with brands such as See by Chloe, 7 for All Mankind, Dondup and Pierre Balmain. Pure love!
Lange Gasthuisstraat 9/11
