Summer sales shoplog


At last, another blogpost!

After two months of blogging silence I suddenly felt the urge to take pictures and make new posts. It was the longest pause there ever was on the four years old existence of Two Wonder Girls. I didn't plan to stop blogging, but it just sort of happened. Anyway, I'm back in blogging business now and ready to show you a shoplog of the past weeks!

& Other Stories

H&M

Urban Outfitters

Apparently a lot whites lately!

Sally Hansen - Resurrection
MAC - Matte Sin

Catrice - Don't touch my mosserati
2X OPI shatter nail polish

H&M

Apart from the eyeshadow and MAC lipstick these are all sales. The first dress will be shown in an outfit post soon, it's absolutely stunning! Further I found some great deals at our local Action. OPI nail polishes for about 3 euros and Sally Hansen for only 1 euro, insane! I also bought a 3-pack of Christmas ear studs for only one euro at H&M. It isn't really the right season, but I fell for the cute and chic snow flakes. Aren't they adorable?

In the end I think I can declare July as a successful sales period for me. I didn't bought very much nor very little and often with great bargains! Did you go sales shopping and had any luck? Do tell me!

Joining pinterest


Finally I decided to join Pinterest!

While searching for some school related inspiration, I stumbled time after time on Pinterest. I noticed that it's a really handy organiser for inspirational images. So after staying far away from Pinterest, with fear of becoming addict as main reason, I finally joined Pinterest.
The main reason (I tell myself) will be school related, think arts en crafts inspiration. But there is also a dose of DIY, beauty, home and fashion. And it keeps expanding on a furious pace lately!

You can follow me here if you'd like; and make sure to drop your account, so we can check out each others!

How to do Burlesque


Burlesque. A theme that has been mentioned quit a few times on this blog (here and here). For me personally, it's a term that stands for mystery, seduction, femininity and above all, elegance. A term that makes me dream of another age.

When I heard there will be a burlesque party in my neighbourhood, you'll understand that I'd love to go. I was wondering what kind of outfits would come out if you styled it with real fashion items of this season. And then this happened. In the first picture a swirly outfit with a mesh skirt, and the second a more classy outfit with sheer and lace.

A little help for if you're ever going to a burlesque inspired party. Here is a list with (in my eyes) the most stereotype items of a burlesque outfit:
  • long gloves
  • corsets
  • ostrich feathers
  • feather boa
  • fishnet tights
  • killer heels
  • lots of bling bling jewellery
  • bright red or pink lipstick
  • fake lashes
  • curled hair
  • lot's of glitters, lace and rhinestones

And just another tip for if you're looking for some stereotypical inspiration, search for: Dita von Teese, Moulin Rouge, Marilyn Monroe or the movie Burlesque

Editorial love


If there was one thing particular that could make me happy (see, I'm not a difficult person!), it would be changing those great online magazines into paper versions on my doormat. For example The Edit, Net-a-porter's magazine. The latest issue contains Sarah Jessica Parker in the most amazing romantic looks. I'm drooling again.
