It’s always cool to discover new hotspots in your own country, so we were really excited when we got invited by Belmodo and Visit Oostende for #MODEinOOSTENDE.
#MODEinOOSTENDE is the perfect weekend to find out more about the boutiques and stores that this beach town has to offer.
The participating shops showed off their best selection of brands and cool store interior while serving chilled drinks. We started our weekend with a yummy lunch at Passe-Vite, it’s a small but cozy place with two very kind ladies at your service. We both took a salade which was freshly made with a lot of care and love. It was a definite must-go in Ostend!
With a map filled with stores to discover we started our shopping stroll throughout Ostend. We really loved the Vitrine Lulu Store , a tiny boutique with the coolest selection of Belgian- and international designer pieces for women. ( Tim Van Steenbergen, Annemie Verbeke, Jil Sander Navy, Vivienne Westwood, Fuzzi, Jean Paul Gaultier, Maison Margiela MM6.) We both adored a perfect grey MM6 blazer jacket, wishlisted for sure!
For the perfect combo between fashion and accesoires from Des Petit Hauts, Sessun, Samsoe&Samsoe,.. and many more you must visit the Lily store.
At Pied De Poule you find yourself between Anine Bing, Love Stories, Ganni and other amazing designers. This cozy store has the coolest interior, with our personal design favorite: a monkey holding a lightbulb-lamp. Who doesn’t wanna spend their money there?!
For our shopping day we both wore casual outfits. Being comfy while shopping is the most fun! When walking next to L’Oxygène we already wanted everything that was standing in the window. Talking about some window shopping! Inside we discovered even more beautiful pieces. The store has an amazing selection of brands like Liv The Label, Patrizia Pepe, Les Petites, Julia June, American Vintage,…
In need of an original present or you just wanna make yourself happy? Visit Ferm. A store filled with clothes, books, bathroom accesoires, watches,.. Bye bye money, hello new goodies!
And last but not least we entered the vintage world at L’Alchimiste, a second hand store with two floors full of vintage designer pieces in perfect condition! The lovely shop owner welcomed us with shots, after that we became best friends in a heart beat! If you’re looking for that ultimate designer piece no one else will own, don’t hesitate to visit this place.
We mentioned some of our favorite shops that we discovered at Ostend, but there is sooo much more to see! So if you’re planning a shopping trip, get ready to discover a lot of new places in Ostend!
