Hotel Matelote // Sleep in style

Hotel Matelote is a cozy boutique hotel in the historical heart of Antwerp, just perfect for a moment of stylish chill in between the hardcore buying sessions… Enjoy a pain au chocolat for breakfast, have a sparkling drink in the cute patio, take selfies in the relaxed lobby before going out, enjoy the Cathedral view, sleep in a very comfy bed and revamp after a perfect warm bath. It's peaceful and quiet even though you are right in the city center. We enjoyed ourselves in a pretty spacious room. Sidenote...  don't bring as many clothes as we did because the hotel doesn't have an elevator. Consider that a free workout for fashionistaaaa's carrying too many #ootd's around! Photos: Rose doing some emails in her cute creamy ensemble by Selected Femme and us 'selfie-ing' in the mirror: Rose wearing an awesome coat and highly adored pants by Pomandere (soon back in stock!). I am wearing a black day dress by Bella Dahl, unfortunately hidden underneath the coolest cardi-coat by Rabens. Shop here.


OU. goes Stationary // Travel in Style

Coats are the core of your outdoor look, which is your first impression and if you didn’t get a train ticket you might as well wear a damn good one… Because you might need a good first impression talking to the train conductor... And long coats suit the amazing old stations so perfectly.... Rose is featuring a lovely hairy one from Polder, and me Vallie in a more basic yet perfect long black coat by Giacomo (great investment piece!). Rose is wearing a white sweater by Baum und Pferdgarten and jeans by Mother, I am wearing a black dress by Gai + Lisva and a lil' velvet bag by Rough Studios. Shop here.


The Art of Shopping // Buying the Style

Professional shopping is called 'buying' and we do that for you with love and laughter… Look what we got lined up for you gals….Above we are shopping at 3 cool fashion agencies in Antwerp. At FashionClub70 we enjoy making lovely pics of our private model showing us the Ba&sh collection. At Brama we are doing denim deliciousness by Mother. See those back details chez Rose!  Oulala! And at Brama we scored a new cool label as well with stars you can't miss. Soon you will find this new label online! And we picked some happy new spring knits for SS18 by handmade Italian Tricot Pop at 'The Showroom'.


Winter Wardrobe Testing // Drink in style

Everywhere we go we find an excuse to say santé to something.  Today we did not need an excuse to celebrate some big news in the patio of Hotel Matelote, but it's still a lil' secret, soon you will find out more… What we wear is never a secret... Rose is wearing Pomandere pants (these are almost sold out, but will be back in stock soon!), a knitty jumper with buttons all over the arm by Ba&sh and black heeled boots by Selected Femme. And she is rocking our oulala Tee with a black cool braces skirt by Baum und Pferdgarten and spicy red ankle booties by Anonymous. On top, she wears the cutest fluffy Polder jacket. Me in Rabens coat. Shop here.


The Jane // Eat in serious style

You have got nice, good, amazing and then there is THE BEST. That's The Jane. Food is holy in this amazing restyled church. Book ahead or be lucky and score a spot in the bar… We are too disorganized to book things (very very) ahead. But a quick phone call de la nous OU. and we had a vip spot at The Upper Room Bar where we had an amazing view over this superb venue.... We enjoyed delicious oysters and yummy small dishes and some lovely glasses of grape juice for adults as well. Great experience! Next time we will go for the 13 course menu. Put this one on your Antwerp wishlist as it is the very best. And see our glitzy outfits! Gold Polder dress, shimmering top and pants by Amator, skirt by Baum und Pferdgarten and black & white knit by Tricot Pop (online tomorrow!)
