Meet Elien Migalski, 26 years old fashionista.
Owner by the fashion blog Dogs & Dresses and CEO by secondhand designer and vintage items selling platform LabelLOV and LabelCrush.
Antwerp lover with a passion for traveling, enjoying life with her four legged friend Lewis and being a wonderful entrepreneur.
I was lucky to get to know her better during my 3 months internship at LabelCrush, so now it’s time to give you a close look behind the scenes of Dogs & Dresses.

I swear by good dry shampoo, I love the ones by Batiste, they are my favorite.
Not am I only using dry shampoo when I don’t have time to wash my hair but I also use it to give my hair a little extra volume, or to give it more that messier look.
I don’t use a lot of styling products but I do spend budget on good shampoo, conditioner and masks.
My hairdresses taught me: because I often go through my locks with a curling iron, they can use some extra love. My favorite brand is Redken.
Favorite designer bag
At the moment I am all over the items of Saint Laurent. Sac de Jour is my favorite, but I also wouldn’t say no to the Collega Bag in velvet green *sight*. When it comes to my own collection… I’m still a huge fan of my Balenciaga bags.
Your ultimate vacation destination
Without a doubt the heavenly Saint Martin in the France Caraïben.
Beautiful views, the most clear sea and an island full with friendly people. It was beyond words a beautiful trip.
MEXICAN. For real, I think I must have been a Mexican in a previous life.
Quesadillas, enchiladas, tortillas, … Yes!
IT DRINK (for now)
I am addicted to Emmi Café Latte, with a Macchiato Light taste.
Not that ‘light’ as I hope it would be, but it is delicious. Perfect to start your summery day with!
I am not a real candy man and I am kind of a basic bitch when it comes to food.
Like I only eat salt and paprika chips, because I dislike the other tastes.
I do always carry gum with me though.
Le Meurice in Paris or The Sanderson in London. I had a great time at both places, you feel like a little princess here.
In Antwerp: The Jane and Savage Lobster Bar.
In Hasselt: Ogst en Taratata.
Hotspots for you and Lewis
Lewis and I love to come to Mirlo’s. This is a really cute coffeebar across our apartment.
The owner Merel is such a happy person and she makes the best French toasts in the whole town!
Favorite interior spot or things you don’t want to miss out on in your apartment
Well, my own space exists most out of vintage finds and IKEA goodness,
I cannot wait to win the lotto one day. I will invest in the most beautiful designer furniture and the walls of my wonderful penthouse will be covered by art!
