Happy Birthday Brussels Vintage Market! Join the celebrations at the vintage and second hand clothes & accessories market today 06.10. at Halles St-Géry, doors are open from 12-7pm. P.S. For some reason I’ve been really inspired to draw and paint birthday cakes lately. Maybe I can soon introduce my own Birthday Card collection 🙂
Lately I’ve been browsing through magazines and blogs, done a lot of window shopping and people watching for inspiration as I’m trying to imagine the perfect winter wardrobe. It’s time to dig out all the cashmere sweaters and woolen coats from the back of the closet, sort items for dry cleaning and start making sketches of new items to sew. Welcome the cold days in style!
Get ready for a day out town tomorrow as Brussels will turn into a car-free zone for the day! The city will be filled with interesting events, so take a look HERE for more information and put on your good walking shoes or make sure your bike is ready to go. As a Villo! user myself, I’m expecting some serious competition at the bike stations tomorrow, so better get up early.
