Today I’ll share my good shopping addresses while showing you an outfit that I wore during our weekend in Brussels (and that, comfortable as it was, was perfect for a shopping spree).
I had the pleasure of meeting the bubbly stylist/creative consultant Linda Van Waesberge, who gave me all her tips. Thanks to her, I discovered tons of pretty shops, where you’re going to have trouble keeping your wallet shut!
Dille & Kamille
(16 Rue Jean Stas)Tons of kitchen and home decor objects. Candles, flowers: and I just found out they have an online store.
(6 place Stéphanie) A must go, located, as always, in a beautiful place, very conducive to rummaging and searching, to leafing through books, and to finding must-haves (for even if we do have access to their online store, the set ups in the shops are always very inspiring).
(56-58 Rue de l’Aqueduc) A shop filled with all those accessories and decorative trinkets that we love. A great thumbs up to their storefront, that I had Instagrammed here.
(4 Rue de la Longue Haie) A designer specialized in knits. Also, her shop has an amazing selection from the “Comme des Garçons” brand (once again, Japan is giving me signs!)…I almost bought a shirt, but I reasoned with myself: I had already had my shopping-fix in Japan for this brand. See how reasonable I am?
(48 rue Antoine Dansaert) Cyrielle‘s concept store (she used to have the blog “Unlimited Clothes”). We had been following each other for a couple years: I couldn’t miss the opportunity of visiting her in Brussels!
The decoration is perfect to host a great number of scandinavian inspired brands and accessories. Cyrielle has excellent taste, and it’s very easy to be seduced by the selection.
(31 rue du Vieux Marché aux grains) A multi-brand concept store with a good clothing selection, even if the mens’ section is more substantial. Which explains that my S.O. left with some good finds.
Hunting & Collecting
(17 Rue des Chartreux) Yet another Colette inspired concept store, but perhaps with a more minimalist design. You can find Carven, Jacquemus, magazines, decoration items, and belgian creations.
(25 Rue des Chartreux) has a selection of great vintage clothing items.
FleaMarket at Place du Jeu de Balle
On sundays, it’s perfect for antiquing and finding amazing things.
I found trinkets and a very prettty Japan made Disneyworld ashtray (I don’t smoke, but it’ll be for guests on the balcony).
Rue du Renard et Rue Blaes
Around the Jeu de Balle Square, these streets are filled with vintage shops for home decor or clothes.
The only problem was that bringing back a huge vintage lamp by train would have proven difficult, so we had to give up a lot of amazing finds.
Of course, there are a lot of other addresses, that you’re welcome to add in the comments below, but these were the ones who really marked my mind. Next step, food in Brussels! Oooh YES! (English translation by Bleu Marine)
