LOCAL HOTSPOT: LILOLA IN BRUGES

I love finding new stores especially when they are local. A few years ago I stumbled upon the luxury concept store Lilola. I was immediately captivated by the beautiful branding, their beautiful clothes and the overall experience you get when you step into the shop. Just recently I have shouted out my love for Lilola and the new top and earrings I bought, and today I'll show you around in one of my favorite stores. Fashionista's... be ready!

Lilola is the baby of Nele Verstraete, the owner and creator of the store and brand. It also stands for Live, Love, Laugh. Nele even organized selling evenings at homes a few years ago and decided to open a permanent shop. She is so passionate about what she does and I guess Nele's thought about clothes is exactly mine too: be more conscious about what you buy. Something I've been thinking about more too. I used to buy a lot of (cheaper) clothes, but I've come to the realization that splurging on a more expensive beautiful piece is far more fun and better than owning a lot of cheap clothes that don't last very long...

And trust me: you'll have your eyes on a lot of things when you step into the store! I'm eyeing those leopard skin shoes, that pretty green floral kimono and a Laurence Delvallez bracelet... :-) The store hosts a lot of cool and hip brands like Malene Birger, Des Petits Hauts, Mosh Mosh and many more. Like I said before, it is filled with cute fashion, and the little sister on the other side of the streets holds pretty shoes, handbags, perfume, candles and much more. Shopping paradise!
