Concert: Nicole Atkins @ Botanique

This Tuesday I had the chance to see Nicole Atkins in La Rotonde at Le Botanique in Brussels. I had never been in that venue so I didn’t expect such a small room! It made the atmosphere really special and intimate. The band opening for them was Sonnfjord, a really nice pop/rock band. The lead singer really has a beautiful voice. I really enjoyed their set and they did an awesome cover of Jolene by Dolly Parton.

It wasn’t sold out so we were all sitting with a big gap between the stage and us. Nicole Atkins actually arrived and started an accoustic version of Neptune City (her hometown in New Jersey – USA)  right in front of us. She said the set up was perfect for a kumbaya!

It was a little awkward so after a song, she urged people to come standing in front of the stage. I have to say the audience seemed a little shy, but my friend, Anne and I, didn’t think twice about it and stood for the whole show. The set was fantastic. Nicole Atkins is a fantastic singer with a great sense of humor. She ended with Crying by Roy Orbinson which again was very special as she performed it in the audience.

Anne and I had seen her opening for Nick Cave in The USA last Summer and she remembered the “Nick Cave Posse” it was pretty funny. She was at the merchandise stand at the end of the show, so we exchanged a few words, hugged and she signed the poster I’d just bought. Another fantastic evening!

Check out her newest album: Slow Phaser.

Kiabi Collection Grande Taille – Le look des blogueuses

Un petit bloghop pour vous montrer déjà quelques looks Kiabi des autres blogueuses qui ont reçu le colis.

Kiabi – Collection grande taille – 1/3 Scottish Island

English below.

Il y a quelques mois j’ai été contactée par Kiabi afin de transmettre mes coordonnées pour une belle surprise fin septembre… C’est avec un peu de retard que j’ai reçu un colis contenant quelques pièces de la collection capsule grande taille qui sort cet automne/hiver. Kiabi a décidé de dynamiser cette collection en proposant des modèles suivant un peu plus les tendances, et en travaillant avec les blogueuses.

A few months ago Kiabi contacted me to send me a little surprise at the end of September… A little later than I expected I received a big package with a few items from their plus size limited collection that is coming out this Fall/Winter. Kiabi has decided to be a little more fashion forward when it comes to their plus size collection, as well as work with bloggers.

Cette collection se décline en 3 lookbooks: Scottish Island (8/10), Graphik (29/10) et Divinity (19/11). J’ai reçu des articles provenant des 3 thèmes donc je vous les montrerai au fur et à mesure. Aujourd’hui on commence donc par Scottish Island.

J’ai reproduit un look à l’identique car c’est celui qui me plaisait le plus. J’ai opté pour des Nike à la place des talons car toujours plus pratiques pour courir en ville. ;) C’est une tenue que je trouve vraiment sympa pour tout les jours et le blouson lui donne un petit côté chic. Niveau taille et coupe je suis entièrement satisfaite. Je pense juste que le pantalon aurait pu être un petit peu plus long (je mesure 1m73 pour info) car je le porte en taille basse pour qu’il ne tombe pas trop court.

La pièce coup de coeur: le bouson fleuri! Un peu léger pour la saison mais tellement original. Très joli pour rehausser une jupe ou une petite robe noire.

N’hésitez pas à faire part de vos remarques car Kiabi est vraiment à l’écoute pour cette collection. 

This collection is split into 3 lookbooks: Scottish Island (8/10), Graphik (29/10) and Divinity (19/11). I have received clothes from all 3 themes so I will slowly show them to you. Today we start with Scottish Island.

I was a bit of copycat and wore the clothes just as they were shown in the look because it’s really my favourite. I chosed Nike instead of heels as they are easier to walk around the city. ;) I think it’s a casual, every day outfit with a chic touch thanks to the jacket. As far as the size and cut go, I am really happy. I just think the pants could have been a little longer (I am 1m73) and wear them lower on my  waist so they don’t look too short.

My favourite item: the flower print jacket! It’s a bit light to wear now but it’s so original! Perfect to brighten a skirt or a little black dress.

T-shirt col V – €9,99 (50)
Pantalon fluide – €29,99 (50/52)
Blouson – €29,99 (50)

Le reste de la collection est disponible ici. Je vous ferai découvrir le jeans slim bientôt!
