Enough orange for the rest of the year..

Finally we could uncross our fingers as sun rays brightened our already shiny queensday. WOW, what a gift! Where did you spend your queensday? And what where you doing there? Amsterdams city centre looked something like this today:

Event Report: SCOUT NIGHT OUT #1

Just before the next party starts (queensday night tonight!) we would like to share a little photo report of our Scout Night Out event with you. SCOUT NIGHT OUT #1 was the festive kick-off of our brand new collaboration with Bullet Models. Lots of you joined us that night and showed their love by mentioning the event online. Thank you all for your support. Bullet Models and our own team had a great time. If you were not able to join us this time, make sure to be there at the next edition of Scout Night Out, the 25th of May. To give you a small impression of numero uno; it looked something like this:

InSpire: Sequin top and patent leather Robert Clergerie heels

This great party combo we got for sale at our Antwerp store. But even when you have nothing to celebrate, wearing sequins alone can make you jump for joy. If you are not the kind of one-piece person, tops like these can make any bottom shine. It reminded me of the House of Laurel SS 2012 collection which even contains spiced up sportswear. The series boasts extremely wearable, functional designs with the sparkle of nightwear. Shorts, trousers, frocks and tops all in exotic-hued sequins. We love sequins, we do! Oh sequins we love you ;-)
