my dear friend L. and i visited ixelles again (as it was already 2 years ago!).
to celebrate the new year, to pick some sales, to have fun.
we started our tour at rose (rue de l'aqueduc 56), always good for gifts.
across the street they have opened a second shop: my table (rue de l'aqueduc 73-75) with food related stuff.
at moss & bros (rue de l'aqueduc 58) they have very different things, nice classic pyjama's, curiosities, clothes. i bought my son Flor a "back to the friture" hoodie, designed by bshirt (conceived, designed, manufactured by belgians for belgians, sold in belgium and the rest of the world !)
at lilycup (rue du page 65) we couldn't resist to buy some delicious cupcakes :violette! tout chocolat! carrot cake! speculoos!
every time we went into a store from then, people looked at our lilycup boxes with verrrry hungry eyes.
as we got hungry ourselves, we discovered pudding rock (rue du mail 76). as it appears, we were very lucky there was a table left for two.
the chef, Danièle explained the menu herself with so much enthusiasm that we wanted to taste everything! (as she told us, they serve a menu "tout verrines", a plate with several deli, but only on reservation).
anyway, our burger and chicken salad were yummie! as well as the dessert plate :-)

wouters & hendrix, my favorite jewelery designers also have a shop in ixelles (place georges brugmann 16). treated myself with earrings
next to w&h is also a bellerose shop (place brugmann 19), women's clothes only.
around the corner you have graphie sud (rue berkendael 195). great for gifts and clothes!
bonnie & jane (rue darwin 34) is a new shop, with vintage and clothes, we like!
across the street is also a a.p.c. (rue darwin 61).
we ended our ixelles trip at le typographe (rue américaine 76), a letterpress studio with shop (always want to buy everything there)
and zao (rue du bailli 96). a very colourful shop stuffed with clothes, presents, toys, postcards,...
