At the bel-etage of the Bourla Schouwburg


The first time when I came to Belgium, Milan told me that he must show me one beautiful place. As I believed in his good taste I knew that place must be special. It was love at first sight. Every walk in Antwerp finished with drinks here. 

The Bourla Schouwburg (or theater) is a famous place in Antwerp. This monument was designed by Pierre Bourla in 1827. The half round entrance became the signature of the architecture. The Bourla Schouwburg offers contemporary theater plays in an historic setting. The Bourla also has an elegant coffee or high tea foyer on the bel-etage. It was in this setting that we took these photos. 

When we got opportunity to take photos here I was over the moon. Thank you Bourla Schouwburg for having us.

Voodoo Vixen The Judy dress


I m here today with another Voodoo Vixen dress. Other ones you can find here and here 

As I said before i really love this brand and their dresses. 
The Judy dress is made from really soft and good quality cotton with 3% elastine. 
I have so many dresses with floral print but I needed to have one more, because I m in love with this vibrant color print.

The sleeves are the reason why this dress is so amazing! Most of my dresses are sleeveless and we know that here is rarly hot, then I always need to wear a cardigan. With this dress I don’t need anything.

Create the perfect vintage look: from dress to hairpiece


It's been a while since I wrote something on my blog, but I m back, and how!

Last week we celebrated 5 years of Ma Chérie D and for that opportunity I had great giveaway on my Facebook page

Last week we had one nice sunny day and we used that opportunity to do this photoshoot. These sunny days unfortunately are rare here in Belgium.

I m wearing this beautiful Violet Sailor Style 50’s Swing Dress by Dolly and Dotty.

This dress is made from soft and good quality cotton with stretch. 
What I like the most about this dress is the beautiful V neck collar. It is so cute and elegant. 
The dress is coming with two belts: one matching floral and another red belt, which is a big plus. With different accessories you can create two different outfits, a big yeey!
This dress comes in two different prints and sizes 8-24UK.

I will not write so much because these photos will show all the beauty of this dress.

Maybe you will notice that I'm wearing different hairflowers on photos, this is because we also photographed this beautiful Rock Rockabilly pieces. I m in love with combination of this dress and the hairflowers.

I must admit that I share special feelings with Rock Rockabilly pieces because one of it I wore on my wedding. 
Behind this brand is one beautiful, kind and creative woman, Jessika. 
This hairpieces are giving a perfect touch to your vintage look.

The pretty dress company


When you combine this wonderful dress and and beautiful location you get the perfect setting for photos. This location is a hidden gem close to the Antwerp harbour and near to the Dutch border. This is the perfect place for a picnic, lovely walks or a nice beer in the garden. Since we discovered this place we often take our dog Yuki for long walks. 

First of all I must say that this is my favourite dress ever! 
This is Monte Carlo black velvet dress by The Pretty Dress Company. It is from The Immodesty Blaize Edit collection. 
It's so elegant and feminine, and shows my curves just the way I want it to be. When you walk into a room wearing this dress I can guarantee you will get all eyes on you! 

I never said before "this is the dress you need to have in your wardrobe" but there is the first time for everything. For me it's the perfect dress for a ball, an exclusive event or fancy dinner. I would advice to wear this dress with black sandals, a pearl neckless and black gloves. You could also combine this with a headpiece or pill box hat.
