If there is one word that would describe the typical Claes Iversen collection best, it is feminine. Playing with proportions inspired by a bow that is falling apart is the latest thing he showed on the second day of Amsterdam Fashion Week. A thing that came in little color; beige (and one babyblue one) pantsuits with flared trousers, a crisp white flowy blouse – shirt is just not the right word to be used here – worn with a bright red hand embroidered skirt and black elegant long dresses with side splits up to you know where…
A more than very welcome catwalk appearance in between the commercial violence happening the rest of the week.
Ah, snow. And what to wear when the snow is falling down like the water does in Niagara Falls? Most of the time I can be busted in comfy sweaters, pj pants, a crazy beanie while shivering, but sometimes I like to ditch all of that – except for the crazy beanie – and dress a bit more fancy than that.
If you notice anything different in these pictures, I did not color my hair, nor did I put on different make-up. It is the beanie, my boyfriend somehow managed to loose the fuzzy ball that used to be the cherry on the cake, uhm beanie. Oh, well.
To some, this might be the most boring subject ever (tea, seriously?), but I could not NOT share this deliciousness. I ironically discovered this French Kusmi tea back in Lisbon during Christmas and if I am completely honest, I only bought it because of the cuteness of the cans. I mean who would pay 17 euros (yes, I know they are cheaper in Paris) for a can of tea if the box was not this cute?
I was planning on using the cans to store my jewelry once they are empty and therefor chose color over taste. This ánd the yumminess of the tea makes me wish I could invite you all over for a tea party at my place. Who’s in?
