News: Chanel FW 14 campaign

Under the moto ‘Coco Coach‘ Chanel launched its complete fall-winter 2014 campaign with Cara Delevigne and Binx Walton. The duo goes running, boxing and even weightlifting in their superdeluxe outfits.

What do I think about this campaign? I don’t understand this campaign at all. I don’t think it does the label any justice. Chanel is supposed to be a classic, almost snobbish label for women with style and grace. I understand that they want a young, up-to-date image. They also go along with the idea that working out is, more then ever, a part of life. You could say that working out is the new black. But still, I don’t like this campaign. I’m also tired of seeing Cara’s face everywhere. Am I the only one thinking this? Or do you agree?

News: Sarah Jessica Parker for Nordstrom

Sarah Jessica Parker is known for her leading role as Carrie Bradshaw in the ‘Sex and the City‘ series. And let’s face it, we all want to be Carrie: she has amazing friends, she is a talented writer, she’s married to her Mr. Big and she has the biggest shoe collection of all time. Because she’s famous for her high heels American department store Nordstrom decided to collaborate with her to create a footwear collection.

“I’ve taken inspiration from things in my life such as the grosgrain ribbons I tied in my hair as a girl, to the flower accents from the Sex and the City wardrobe, to references to classic styles from the late Seventies and early Eighties,” said Parker.

I was really excited about the collab but today I saw the pictures of the collection and my enthusiasm dropped. Although I can see  a lot of Carrie Bradshaw in these shoes, the collection feels dated. I expected fresh designs, and bold colours. But the shoes are all very sweet with ribbons and pastel colours. Maybe I’m just more a Samantha when it comes to shoes!

Here are some pictures of the collection. You can find them here.

Although I encourage a healthy lifestyle, I couldn’t keep this little treasure a secret. Dr. ♥  Sweety is a candy shop in the center of Ghent. The concept reminds me of the one from Happy Pills. It’s fun, quirky and candy from the happy candy clinic will always bring a smile on your face.

If you need a doctor, maybe  Dr. ♥  Sweety can help you! You can find him on Botermarkt 6 in Ghent. Consultations are from monday till saterday from 10 am until 18 pm.
