Very Vanilla ...

Last week, I had the pleasure to meet Eva Balg.
She's the very nice designer behind 'KID VANILLA', a brand I really fell in love with.
But more about that later, first Eva ...

She was born in Germany, but is now living in Antwerp, where she studied at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts.
She's been working together with her friends who were all dealing with graffiti and hip hop, and held exhibitions of young artists.
It was in that creative vibe, that Kid Vanilla was born.

Eva left the academy, to focus completely on her clothing brand, and has since then worked together with artists like Cream, Fax'R & Numi.

For the 2010 collection, the grounds for the prints were originally made on a wall, photographed and then printed digitally.

What I like most about Kid Vanilla is, that it's very colorful, sporty, even a lil' rebellious, yet very feminine.
Like the adorable high waisted skirt in bright blue and black from the 2010 collection.
Verrry proud owner, yes!

Eva does not work with seasonal collections, like most designers do, but comes with an annual unisex-collection.
She did tell me,that she does work with different young artists throughout the year, to create some capsule-collections.

Kid Vanilla is available at 'Avenue' shop in Antwerp.

Even better, is that she also organises homesales, so you can meet her at her place , and watch the entire collection all at once. ( And most likely, buy half of that collection ) 

There is a Kid Vanilla FB group,that is very up-to-date, so there you can check for homesale-date and also see the lovely collection.
Don't hesitate to add that one to your FB.

I'm definately sold, and I know you will too!

Yes, it is Lily Donaldson.
Maybe hard to recognize the first minute, but it's Lily, who pays tribute to Alexander McQueen in this fetish-erotica shoot for Vogue Paris, by Steven Klein.

Sweets for my sweet, sugar for myself ...

Candyland, also known as land of the colored, sugar-coated, buttered, soft, creamy, colored, sprinkled, icy, sweet, sweet , sweeeeeeeet delights.

Also, land where you would like to have a one-way ticket to, but have to pass, due to some health, bad-teeth, sugar-overload reasons.

But honey, don't worry ... I know you need your sweets, so here's some good news for you and it goes by the name of  ' Glam At Heart '.

Glam At Heart, makes it possible to have cake, all day long.
Even better, it comes in the shape of accessories.

Proud owner of this wonderful online shop is Elfi De Bruyn.

Probably the most positive minded-pink loving-glitter adoring  person I have ever met in my life.
And what I love most about her, is that she's taken this whole glitter world  to the max and follows her beliefs and style no matter what other people think. 
A true gift, if you ask me.

The moment you enter her online shop, you cannot help but think you want it all.

Cakes, bunnies, hats, ice cream, hearts, flowers, ... it's all there. 
She even has special treats during the holidays, like bath bombs in the shape of cupcakes.

When you order something, don't expect a boring cardboard box.
She wraps everything up, adds candy and a nice looking Glam At Heart postcard and even writes a personal message on the card.

Written from the heart, she just wants to share her love for the cute & pink with all of  her clients.
Completely devoted to her shop, she works hard, but she loves every minute of it.

Visit her shop, and fall in love with all of the treats. 
No it doesn't make you fat, it doesn't give you bad teeth, it just makes you extremely happy.

Let them eat cake, let it be you, who wears the cake.
