FALL FAVORITES #2

Remember I asked you on Facebook last week whether to buy or not to buy something in two different colors? Well, I was talking about this oversized cashmere sweater from Zara that I bought a few weeks ago and already wore 8.657.639 times. Ok that might be a little exaggerated, but I wear it ALL THE TIME.

Now they also carry this in a dark red (which is obviously not for me, but it’s pretty anyway) and sand (HERE). Should I?

Also, after spending tons of money on electrical fuzz removers*, I just recently got this d-fuzz-it thing from eBay for a little over 3 euros and it is the best thing that has ever happened to me. Just a tip if you want to keep your cashmeres fuzz free.

* These things don't work at all!

VERONIKA

Veronika (style editor for German Harpers Bazaar) has this magic spell around her that turns me in this shopping monster that wants to buy literally everything she wears. The thing is, our body types are pretty much on the opposite sides of the spectrum. So whatever looks good on her, doesn't necessarily look good on me.

I really do want that leather mini skirt though. Or sort of the same version, but in satin! I don't know what it is exactly, but I am having this weak spot with anything mini skirt lately. Since I absolutely hate any type of hosiery, I am not sure if it is the best obsession for me.

Do you ever have that? A thing for a thing that you know is not going to work for you?

Veronika is wearing: Shirt and Skirt, Acne Studios; Sunglasses, Ray-Ban.

EMPTY

One of the perks of my job is that I get to try a lot of beauty products.

WHAT’S ON YOUR MIND?

I introduced myself by sharing my holy grail of hair care with you, about 8 months ago. In the meantime Sabrina let me go all out in terms of lipstick and mermaid hair (hello oldskool make-up fest!). I showed you beauty treasures from Ibiza to Moscow and we talked some serious sunscreen business. For those who missed all of the other fun, you’re just a click away from catching up!

The minute I found out about this storytelling concept of a store called & Other Stories I knew we would become great (best?!) friends. The minute I found out they weren't opening in The Netherlands w…

THE KIDS ARE ALL RIGHT / MILITARY

Last (but not least, ha!) in our The Kids Are All Right series is Moisha, showing how the military look is done. Military can be a bit tricky, especially because it can be quite the sensitive thing to be called a 'trend'.

But I do believe the right army green parka or strong boot (we call them 'kistjes' in Dutch) can look absolutely beautiful with the right dress. In Paris, I saw Italian stylist Viviana Volpicella in a short version of the military parka worn with a super chic mini dress from Valentino and flat shoes and I thought it was the perfect mix.

IVORY NAILS

Let's talk nails, shall we? Whether I raid my flatmate's beauty cabinet, my best friend’s make-up purse or the manicure pouch of a colleague: when it comes to nail polish, I always spot the same holy trinity of basics. A classic red, a gloomy black and a simple nude shade. Almost like a fixed wardrobe we silently, but team wise, agree on.

THE BIG MARATHON DIARIES

Yes, I made it! I ran half a marathon in super hilly San Francisco! It was a long - sometimes even painful - journey, but it was probably the most satisfying thing I have ever done in my entire life. On to the next?
