A day in Brussels

December 21, 2011

Boucle d’or

The store recently grew in size, adding a basement full of gifts, books, furniture and boy’s stuff. A must in Brussels.

The store (Em72), featuring jewelry, accessories, books as well as clothing by brands carries Forte Forte and Inamorato, two labels that I really like.


 If you are looking hip, colorful clothes, Claude Hontoir is the right spot for you, especially for 6-10 years old children. Amazing choice.

This store has been around for a long time – it’s an institution in Belgium.

I have a weakness for Little Circus. Lovely, charming, full of surprises and very creative displays.


Other spots not to be missed : Caramel, Mercredi, Kat en Muis, We were small  (children’s stores); Maison particuliere and the Wiels Museum (art).

And a great restaurant : Vismet. Sint-Katelijneplein 23 Place Sainte-Catherine, 1000 Brussels
