By now I seriously consider YOU as my BFF as I’ve shared tons of secrets with you… remember my extremely intimate pregnancy stories and how I revealed every single saucy yet not entirely appetizing detail about expecting?
Well, today I intend to take our friendship to another level as I share my whereabouts when it comes to shopping. Because yes … an immortal like me really does enjoy a spree of extended shopping. And yes, I do prefer the real deal to the virtual boutiques, as I’m the type of girl that likes to feel the fabrics I’ll be wearing.
So there, the secret is out! I’m not the online shopper you expected and I also like to visit the less obvious shopping cities, hence this post and my revealing of my love for Kortrijk, discovered thanks to one of my dearly beloved K-town friends.
Kortrijk has it all! Fabulous designer shoe shops such as Victor Victoria, where you can find a lovely selection of Dries Van Noten, Chloé and Jimmy Choo shoes.
Kortrijk is also home to heaps of awesome multi-brand shops such as Pure and Enfin with pretty brands such as Carven, Masscob and By Malene Birger. My all time favourite shop A Suivre recently opened a beautiful boutique where you can spend hours trying on creations of labels such as Roseanna, No21, Nanushka and Sea NY.
And there’s also La Fille de René, which turns out to be a hidden gem stocking beautiful boho chic dresses that will make your sunny escapes look just that tad bit better!
There’s also a bunch of young creative ladies such as Joanne Vanden Avenne and the lovely Stock sisters who after years of making custom made dresses decided to open Ensemble a fashion & lifestyle boutique in the city center. And lets not forget my newest discovery and obsession, the beautiful creations of LEBRAHC.
When in search of something mini for the mini Kirilove, I turn to Zoen Kids for the coolest outfits and when in need of a healthy break, then there’s only 1 address: Wow Salad Bar … for heaps of healthy yummies served à la minute.
Need I say more? Don’t think so, just keep my good advice in mind next time you go out on a shopping spree and be sure to pay Kortrijk a visit, I’m sure you’ll enjoy it!
