ANVERSA the arrival

Despite the wake up call at 4.45 am, my friend Bianca and I couldn't be more excited to start this new fashion adventure!
We flew to Antwerp, Belgium, for a 2-days shopping experience with Pinko, as I won the R U PINKO contest with my "N" defect: nevrotic :)
We landed just in time for a delicious fusion lunch with the whole crew: Alessia, Enrico and Michele!
We had so much fun hanging around the alleways of this beautiful city, and stopping by the Cathedral.
We spent a funny afternoon at Pinko store, trying on thousands of different summer outfits and choosing my fav items to come back home with me, and then headed to a summer party by the beach, with delicious big burgers in our hands!
It was really chilling outside, but my long black dress + leather biker jacket saved me!
During the second day, after a relaxing night wrapped up in the hot and warm douvet of the Hilton Hotel (and a gigantic breakfast) we visited the MoMu, the most famous fashion museum in Europe.
Perfect for a fashion blogger (which also managed to have some extra-shopping while running to our bus to the airport...)!
Can't wait to see and show you all the pics and video taken by the guys ;)

Nonostante la sveglia alle 4.45 del mattino, io e la mia amica Bianca non potevamo essere più emozionate per questa nuova avventura fashion!
Siamo volate ad Anversa, Belgio, per una esperienza di shopping di 2 giorni assieme a Pinko, dato che ho vinto il contest R U PINKO con il mio difetto con la "N": nevrotica :)
Siamo atterrate giusto in tempo per un buonissimo pranzo fusion con l'intero gruppo: Alessia, Enrico e Michele!
Abbiamo iniziato girando per i vicoli di questa bellissima città, fermandoci poi alla Cattedrale.
Abbiamo poi passato un pomeriggio divertentissimo al negozio Pinko, provando migliaia di outfit estivi e scegliendo i miei capi preferiti che sono tornati a casa con me, e ci siamo dunque diretti ad un summer party in spiaggia, con hamburger deliziosi tra le mani!
Faceva davvero freddissimo, ma con il mio vestito nero + giacca di pelle da biker mi sono salvata!
Durante il secondo giorno, dopo una notte rilassante avvolta nel caldo e morbido piumone dell'Hotel Hilton (e una colazione gigante) abbiamo visitato il MoMu, il museo di moda più famoso d'Europa.
Perfetto per una fashion blogger (che è anche riuscita a fare un pò di shopping-extra correndo verso il pullman per l'aereoporto...)!
Non vedo l'ora di vedere e condividere con voi tutte le foto scattate dai ragazzi ;)








We were wearing:

  2. As much as I agree with you that Antwerp is a beautiful city and love shopping (I'm waiting for more pictures of your trip), I have a few things to comment on. First of all can you spell Antwerp in any other language that is not italian?!? Also I have recently moved to Brussels, having lived in England, Russia, Ireland and Italy and I can guarantee that the wokaway is a chain that you can find any shitty tourist place in Belgium and not a place for fashionable locals and not really the glamourous place you are selling it off for!! I personally think that the sushi is not worth taking picture of, I have seen better in New York, London and even in an almost unknown-to-Europeans city in Russia called Voronezh.
    I believe there is much more to the life of a fashion blogger than pizza, pasta, small patisserie and other sorts of food. Trust me you can do better than this! Way better!!

    1. Hi my dear :) let's start from the begin! I wrote Antwerp both in the English part o fthe post and in the labels at the end of it. In the italian part I wrote Anversa as we call it this way here.
      We arrived at 3 p.m. When a lot of bars and restaurants told us they were not in service. So Wok Away was available and we were really hungry. The sushi was not so exceptional as you said. But the rice of my friend Bianca is way better than that I could eat here in Italy! Plus, I loved the design of the yellow walls, mirrors and paper deers :) what's more, these are the only photo I took as we had two photographers following us for the whole trip. And we didn't manage to take extra photos :)

    3. Hi Anna!
      The blog is an experiement with a friend from Genoa but I did't go anywhere (my friend sort of ditched me!)! I think we didn't even manage to publish the first post!
      I might take over the blog myself and write about my new Brussels adventure so you can wait a couple of weeks to check it out!
      I will be waiting more pics then :)
