One thing that never occurred to me is to go to the seaside of Belgium and check out what they have to offer. I mean, why would I? I work/live in Antwerp, the fashion capital of Belgian. Anything I want is at my disposal. However, thanks to MODEINOOSTENDE (Fashion in Oostende), I discovered that the seaside of Belgium, and more specifically Oostende, has more to offer than what meets the eye.

MODEINOOSTENDE is all about discovering hotspots in; well you guessed it, Oostende. Honestly, I never thought that I would find anything worth my while but I was pleasantly surprised.


Two stores ate my heart out. First up: Pied de Poule. The store window actually won my heart over. That window was super inviting so I had to go in and give it a chance. With brands such as Kelly Love and Anine Bing, the store lives up to the beauty of its store window.

The second store was the absolute highlight of my trip. Never in a million years did I think that I would find a store that would sell Belgian fashion. And then I walked passed Vitrine Lulu Store. I rarely go through every clothing item in a clothing rack but this time, I had to. Now, am I biased because it was Belgian fashion? DUH. Then again, it is no secret that I adore Belgian fashion.The bigger question: Did I buy anything? I did and the damage was done. More about that next week!

If you like what you see on this blog. That means that you like my taste which means that these stores in Oostende will probably be up your alley!
