Pre-CHRISTMAS trip....

Sorry for my lack of news lately...

 December was a really busy month!

 I had a lot work at my job,

 we had something planned on every week-end...
including a Bruxelles trip and 4 days in Paris!
but we are now on vacations at home so with some time left!
So these pictures were taken in Bruxelles.
We spend 2 days there before Xmas for some shopping and to see familly.

We really enjoyed this short trip.

We of course made some vintage shopping...

I found an incredible 50's novelty blouse!

But we also enjoyed Xmas spirit everywhere in the city!

All lights were so beautiful.

Xmas market was really lifefull even in the middle of the night!

The "Grand Place" and the Queen Galerie were just magical!

So many sweet things to taste!

Maccarons, waffles, chocolates...!!!!

We spent a night at this place...

the METROPOLE hotel! 

We chose it because of its location and history!

This 5 stars hotel was openned in the late XIXe century in the heart of historical city.

And about everything is just like one century ago!

Even if it's a palace, you can find some great deals for week-end on internet!

It's nice to see that such a place have been preserved!

It was a really cold week-end.

So here is how Sylvain an I were dressed!

So elegant!

30's midnight blue suit for my hubby!

Look at all those details on ceiling!

I chose to wear wool with some red touches!

Unfortunatly, we forgot to picture our room...

It's New Year Eve tonight... ENJOY!!!!

Did you go somewhere for your Xmas shopping?
Do you choose your hotels based on their history?


  1. De très belles photos, comme d'habitude! Je vous souhaite une très bonne année =)

  2. I've never stayed in a historic hotel but my apartment is in a building c. 1929 and I love it! I just adore old architecture.

  3. HAPPY NEW YEAR to you and Sylvain! I hope we see you soon!

  4. Sylvain is cutting one exceptionally dapper figure there! You two really must be the best dressed couple anywhere you go (hands down!).

    Wishing you both a joyful, awesome, vintage filled New Year and 2014!
