Oh no, not going out with nice clothes and shoes today. Ice all over, snow, salt and cold. So I’m on strike, for this number 10. If I had stayed in today, I would have spent the day under a blanket!
But I made my way to work, with hiking boots (not heeled :-), woolly gloves and thick sweaters, not fashion but warm, safe & cosy! Enjoy the week-end
Polar temperatures outside, so today’s Fashion Photo Booth is a mix of furs & knit. I love these checkered pants from 5th Avenue Shoe Repair, great brand but hard to find (in Belgium).

Plans for this weekend? A saturday with friends and a double photo shoot on sunday… Packed but fun!
|Morgan leather biker jacket, grey and gold Alexander McQueen sweater, black satin shorts, a white shirt and Belstaff boots
17°C during the day, 14°C at night: it’s incredibly soft weather for Belgium this time of year. So I’m still enjoying short sleeves for a bit…
|Skinny jeans, McQ waistcoat, short sleeves checkered shirt by Polo Jeans, Ellen Verbeek shoes and the must have of last summer (and a few summers before that too) a white watch
(in this case, Ice Watch)
Heading into a long week-end and I’m wearing a mix of fabrics, with two key seasonal themes: aviation & navy.

I’ve worn loads of black in the past. And I’ve thrown away loads of black clothes but this black leather pleated skirt, I could never bring myself to get rid of it. Boy, am I glad! And since leather is at the top of the must-have fabrics this winter… How to do black (again)

Today, 22°. Amazing weather for an 8th of October. So it kinda felt like a last chance at wearing summer-like clothes so there you go!

Welcome to the first Fraikin’s Friday Fashion Photo Booth post!
From this friday onwards, and every friday that follows you’ll get a glimpse of my Friday outfit. Enjoy!
|Pepe Jeans brown dress with bow detail, Topshop Faux-Fur bodywarmer,
Aldo brown heeled hiker boots & beloved C’n’C suede handbag
I’ve been toying with the idea of taking snapshots of my outfits but being a photographer, I wanted it to be a concept in itself… I thought of putting a camera in the lift, taking a snap everytime you go in but I think the neighboors wouldn’t have been too happy. Standing in front of my own camera just isn’t for me either… Long live Apple for doing fun products like Photo booth.
This is a test, but starting Friday, expect Fraikin’s Friday Fashion Photo Booth, to come every Friday (!) to Twitter, Facebook and other social networks around yours.
