FASHION | HIP.TIQUE

There is a new fashion hotspot in town and I couldn't be happier with this one. HIP.TIQUE is all about timeless and minimalistic fashion, in the most trendy way. They have a lot of different brands from all over the world but the collections definitely have a Scandinavian vibe.

When you shop at HIP.TIQUE, you receive the full experience. They offer great, qualititative clothes combined with personal style coaching and a fresh cup of  tea which they personally selected to fit the range of clothing. 

When you pass by the store on Leopoldstraat 9 (Antwerp) be sure to say hi to Carine. She is the most dedicated and warm shopowner I've ever met.

TRAVEL | THAILAND GUIDE: BANGKOK

Before I begin, I must admit that Thailand was one of the most amazing experiences of my life. It was a short trip but so rich thanks to all the wonderful people I've met on the way, the delicious things I ate and the unforgettable things I've seen. It also was a trip full of firsts. My first time in Asia, my first time in the jungle and I can go on and on and on.

Bangkok reminded me of New York at first. The buildings were huge, taxis and cars everywhere and life obviously goes fast. But walking around in the different districts, I really fell in love with all the foodstands at the side of the road! Most of you know by now that I love to eat. So walking around in a city that smells like food all the time was somewhere in between heaven and hell. It all smelled unbelievably good but I was hungry the entire time.

We were only in Bangkok for two days so we decided to spend those days doing only the best we could find. To sleep, that brought us to the Muse Hotel by MGallery. The hotel is a bit more upscale, we came straight out of the jungle of Khao Sok so we decided to spoil ourselves! You could actually just go to Bangkok and have an awesome time without leaving this hotel. It has a rooftop pool + bar, award winning restaurants and the rooms are beyond amazing! Another perk is the location. It is only a 10 min walk from one of the biggest shopping malls in Bangkok - Centralworld and if you walk 5 minutes more, you have the designer mall Siam Square that is filled with small boutiques from local designers.




If you do want to leave the hotel for food, I highly recommend one of the places I had dinner at. The first one is Gaggan. It is actually right accross the street from the Muse hotel! After watching the Netflix series Chef's table, we just had to get a seat at his restaurant in Bangkok. We tried to make reservations 4 weeks before we arrived but that didn't work, so make sure you make your reservation at least 3 months in advance. We tried our luck and went to the restaurant at noon to beg for a table. I guess our sad faces worked because we scored a table. And dear lord, the begging was totally worth it. Without exaggerating, it was the best meal of my life!


The second evening, we had dinner at Suhring, a two Michelin star restaurant by two German chefs, the brothers Suhring. I'm a sucker for Asian food but these brothers really got it right when it comes to flavours. We chose the 8 course meal accompagnied by some great European wines.





I can honestly say that I can die a happy girl after these experiences. But I plan to have a lot more first! Keep an eye on social for the next part of my Thailand adventures!

TRAVEL | HOTEL COLON BARCELONA

OoO: I'm enjoying a well deserved holiday in Thailand but I wouldn't dare to leave you without anything new popping up on anoukmeetsfashion.com.

I can't wait to tell you all about my island tips but if it comes to Barcelona, the Colon hotel should definitely be on your list. These pictures are taken on their beautiful rooftop terrace (yes, they have a pool and a spa there too!) and it looks out on the amazing cathedral of Barcelona. 

The staff was super friendly and although it was in the middle of the busy city center, there is no noise at night. (not east to find in a party city)

What am I wearing:

Jacket - Bershka
Jeans - Samsøe samsøe 
Sunglasses - Polette
Shoes - Vans









OUTFIT SZIMPLA BUDAPEST

We've decided to spend the holidays abroad this year. We were going over cities where it would be fun to celebrate NYE and it ended up being a pretty difficult descicion. We could pick a city we already knew, like Paris or Barcelona. But somehow we were attracted by celebrating in a city we didn't really know. That is how we ended up in Budapest. Very known for it's baths and cheap alcohol. And since we didn't make it into the baths, we made up with the other one. 

The partyscene was a little different than what we are used to. But we had the times of our lives! Even more so in fun bars like Szimpla Kert than in clubs. 

It's a beautiful city but I would recommend everyone to go when it's a little bit warmer. Let me know if you are traveling there, I'll hook you up with some great tips!

What am I wearing

Shorts - Zara
Shoes - Stradivarius
Vest - Made by my Mom - 175 euro. 
You can order one by sending me an e-mail.

OUTFIT | FRILLS

Frills, frills, frills everywhere! The more the merrier! Well, that depends but let's just say that recently I have become a fan of everything that has either frills or ruffles. While I used to kill my mom for adding ruffles to everything or returning home after shopping for me with frilled items.

I guess a girl can change, right?

What am I wearing: 

Jumper - Zara
Pants - Zara
Belt - H&M
Hair by L'Oréal Colorista after 2 washes






TRAVEL | W HOTEL AMSTERDAM

Amsterdam still remains and will remain one of my favourite cities in the world. I lived there for 6 months and I must say that it wasn't love at first sight but my love grew bit by bit and since my last stay even more. 

This last stay was at the W hotel, which is situated in an old bank and has an amazing view over the romantic canals. The hotel is super central, after a two minute walk your already shopping in the 9 streets and the Kalverstraat is only 1 minute away. And you even have a big concept store in the lobby of the hotel. Shopping destination much? 

If you're not really into shopping you can just stay at the hotel all day and night. It has everything you need! The beautiful spa can be found in the cellar of the building. This used to be the place where they kept the bank safes. It still has this amazing, mysterious vibe. And to regain your strengths, after all the relaxing, you can have an amazing dinner at The Dutchess. A restaurant which is situated in the same building. Oh yes! Aaaaaand, if you are not into fancy food, you can order roomservice from the burger bar next door. Yum to the yum yum.

For more pictures of the hotel room and spa, check out the website of W Hotel.
You can book your reservation here.

OUTFIT | HOLIDAY DRESSING

The holidays are coming! Get out those pretty dresses and make your family proud by talking the night away about those great achievements and lovely memories of 2016. 

It was a year with lots of ups and downs but what I'll mostly remember about 2016 is the amazing summer I've had with my friends and all the new people I've met. 

I fell in love with this dress after I saw it online. The only thing about it is that the fabric crinkles easily. And since you all know I'm not the master at ironing, I'm afraid I won't be wearing it this much. Can one of the highstreet brands please come up with affordable iron proof dresses? Many thanks!

What am I wearing:
Dress - Zara
Shoes - Stradivarius
