We spent the morning of our second day in Antwerp visiting the Fashion Museum, MoMu, wondering how women fit in to such impossibly tight dresses, and then the second half scoffing chocolate and cake – hooray for feminism!
When wandering through the streets situated by the cathedral, we came across cafe after restaurant of intriguing looking places to eat, noting them down for tomorrow’s lunch or Thursday’s snack. Inevitably, we didn’t end up returning to any of them, due to finding similarly tasty looking outlets elsewhere – I think this warrants a return trip to Antwerp, don’t you?! Although, one thing Lucy and I had to try was Belgium’s famous chocolates, that of course live up to the hype. I’ll be talking about my must-sees and visits in another format very soon, so watch this space if you’re looking for an address for the best cupcakes in Antwerp.
As for my ensemble, well, it attracted a few looks from the locals, but that’s what you get for dressing like a clown! This is hands-down one of my favourite dresses – Vivi can do no wrong in my eyes! And it was the first outing for a pair of Mulberry shoes that I picked up with my Christmas money at the factory shop in January. I’d almost forgotten about them, they’d been packed away, reserved for a time when I could wear them without tights. And I’ll admit, wandering a new city on a hot day isn’t exactly the best way of breaking in a pair of shoes, but they served me well!
Oh to be back in sunny Antwerp..! x
