Central Europe Vintage

August 23, 2013

I bought both dress and belt in Brussels when I was there a few months ago. I swear I nearly squealed when I saw the belt, it’s not only unusual but also in my favourite colour combo.  I am not sure of the decade of the dress but I suspect it’s either the 60’s or the 70’s. The belt is most definitely from the 60’s. The shoes are from Topshop and I bought them years ago when I visited the UK just a few months before moving here.

As I still have a lot of photos from my visit to Belgium to share, this is the perfect excuse to show a few I took on the day I bought these items. These were taken in Brussels when we went for a stroll at the Quartier des Marolles, a neighbourhood filled with vintage and quirky shops with a lot of fun street art to look at.

    Was it at the vintage market you got it? It goes really well with the dress.

    These pictures makes me like Brussels a little bit more 😉

    And look at us, so cute playing fairy tales, ah!
