Some minty stories.
Lately I’ve been drawn to one particular color. And I find myself buying all sorts of things in this color. As the sun is slowly starting to shine brighter, it’s time to go bright again and let the mint colored accessories do the talking.
1. Original polaroid camera from Blender Vintage Shop in Mechelen.
If someone tells me something is impossible, I’m intrigued. So when reading about The Impossible Project, all I wanted was a polaroid camera myself. But since the new ones are quite an investment (it’s not like buying a new pair of jeans), I was on the lookout for that one opportunity where I could buy an old one. Until I suddenly saw three of them popping up on the Facebook page of the local vintage shop in Mechelen. So I asked to put one of them aside and immediately went to get it after work.
As of now, when people pay me and my boyfriend a visit at our apartment, they have to make sure to be ready for the occasional photo op.
2. Minty Vans from a shop in St. Maarten.
During the Christmas period, I went to St. Maarten with my parents. When strolling through the small streets of harbour town Philipsburg, we came across a sneaker shop where I spotted these Vans. I immediately knew I had to buy them! I was eyeing these beauties for a long time but due to some “we do not ship to Belgium“-problems, I was never able to get my hands on them.
So when this opportunity presented itself I couldn’t hesitate and so my mom bought them for me and my sister – yes, I sometimes am a spoiled brat. Thanks mom!
3. A Nike cap from Twits in Leuven.
When buying my snowboard gear for a trip to the mountains with work, this bright cap caught my attention. It was sitting next to a penguin one on the shelves of the skateboard shop in Leuven me and my boyfriend often visit.
After trying the penguin one (I was actually planning on buying this one but it really didn’t look that good on me) I tried this bright lady and immediately fell in love. Add it to the check please! I think it will look very nice paired with some shorts and girly dresses when I walk the streets of Barcelona at the end of May.
