Happy Blog Birthday! 3 Years of Romantique and Rebel

Australia/ Dresses/ Italy/ Rebel Alexa/ Romantique/ Trousers/ Wardrobe


3 years ago, we started our fashion blog Romantique and Rebel, borne of our love for  fashion, decor, travel and everything beautiful. It’s been a wonderful journey so far,  during which we’ve been lucky enough to forge friendships with readers, met like-minded people at fashion events and have had endless fun inspiring each other, showcasing our different styles and philosophies.

The last year has been choc full  of life-enriching events,  providing us with a wealth of  inspiration: a wedding for Romantique, travel to Italy, Spain and Australia and even a new job for Rebel. At times, it’s been challenging to update the blog regularly whilst holding down busy jobs and planning a wedding, but the satisfaction of  sharing our passions always prevails.

A huge thanks to all our wonderful readers, Twitter and Instagram followers, and Facebook fans. We love each and everyone of you!

Here’s to a great year ahead!

Enjoy these flashbacks to our most popular posts from the last 12 months.

Spring Super Stripes

Dresses/ Romantique

Stripey summer dress Max and Co

The sunshine arrived this weekend in London and I’m more than happy to leave my thick tights and winter coats in the cupboard (yes, it was warm enough to go out without tights). My summer clothes are still in storage, so I chose to wear a fresh, stripey look for the first warm day of the year. Rather than relying on my trusted navy striped shirts, I went for a more graphic take on the Breton look.  Thick bands of denim blue and beige adorn my two-toned dress with a vertical stripe running through the middle, just for the fun of it.

I am wearing:

  • Dress from Max and Co SS2014
  • Pointy snake skin flats from Dolce Vita at TK Maxx
  • Pink handbag from Bally
  • Paris Earrings from Les Nereides
  • Trench coat from Stefanel

Banish the Breton this summer and go for big and bold stripes this spring!

Spring day in Notting Hill

Mr Romantique and I went to Notting Hill today for a hearty Honest Burger. Sun hungry Londoners were soaking up the rays outside the bars and restaurants.

Berlin Street Style: Festive Stripes & Bronze pumps


Berlin Streestyle stripy dress and bronze shoes

For the  weekend, Mr Romantique and I travelled to Berlin to immerse ourselves in the city’s biggest tourist attraction in winter: The Christmas markets! More on the beautiful markets in a few days, for today I just want to share my dress and my new shoes! I felt very chrismassy in this outfit: Gold-bronze stripes on the top of this winter dress with a flowing, attached navy wool skirt. My new shoes are bronze with a chunky midi heel and three straps.

Quartier 206 Blog post stripey dress

The Galeries Lafayette Berlin and the adjacent luxurious department store Quartier 206 is one of my favorite shopping and cafe area in Berlin. It’s classy, beautiful, offers an array of high end and high street shops and is never too busy and stressful.

Bronze pumps with midi heel and three straps from Max & Co

I love my new shoes! They have all a romantic gal needs: A walkable chunky midi-heel, trendy metallic color and three playful straps. Valentino and Chloe do the same model so I’m happy I scored an Italian made quality shoe for a more affordable price from Max & Co.
