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


Urban Outfitters

Apparently a lot whites lately!

Sally Hansen - Resurrection
MAC - Matte Sin

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


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.
