Musée Fin-de-Siècle

Das letzte Wochenende habe ich endlich mal wieder in Belgien verbracht und am Sonntag das fantastische neueröffnete Musée Fin-de-Siècle in Brüssel besucht. Passend zur Gelegenheit haben ich meinen neuen Vintage Seidenrock (beim vorletzten Brüssel Besuch gefunden) und mein Lieblingscape/Jacke angezogen. Im Museum haben wir so viele Bilder gemacht dass es mir Mühe bereitet hat eine Auswahl zu treffen, hier also statt vieler Worte viele Bilder!

I spent the last weekend in Belgium and visited the fantastic and newly opened Musée Fin-de-Siècle in Brussels on Sunday. I was quite fittingly dressed in my new vintage silk skirt (that I had found on last visit to Brussels) and my favorite cape/jacket. We took so many pictures in the museum that I had a hard time choosing images for this post – so here they are instead of many words!
