PERFECT SHIRT

PERFECT SHIRT

For as long as I can remember, I have been looking for a perfect blue cotton shirt. One that is even more perfect than the ones I have been borrowing from my boyfriend ever since I gave up on my search because his were just good enough. When I secretly took one of his to …

BEAUTY TALK WITH ANNA

BEAUTY TALK WITH ANNA

Meet Anna Nooshin, my traveling partner during all Fashion Weeks abroad, the brains (co-founder) behind NSMBL and above all my gorgeous friend who puts her left shoe on her right foot and her right on her left foot every now and then. Having traveled together for three seasons now taught me Anna is not only …

SKINNY JEANS

SKINNY JEANS

You might have noticed I have been wearing the same pair of jeans for the whole weekend in Paris. I put them on right before I jumped on the train heading south and – apart from sleeping in my pajamas – never really took them off until I got back home in Amsterdam. I usually …

NEW YORK FASHION WEEK

NEW YORK FASHION WEEK

Because videos tell a whole another story than pictures, and because there is no cheaper way to take you all with us than this, Anna and I decided this was the best way to show you our Fashion Week adventures – from shows and backstage fun to all kinds of randomness we bump into and …

EN ROUTE TO BRUSSELS

Woah, just came back from a relaxing (yes, shopping equals relaxing) weekend in Paris and I am already on my way abroad again. This time I am heading a bit closer to home – Brussels to be exact – for a night out with SMETS. Make sure to keep an eye on my Instagram for …

VOGUE’S 1 YEAR ANNIVERSARY

VOGUE’S 1 YEAR ANNIVERSARY

Two days before my birthday on the 17th of March I celebrated another birthday, Dutch Vogue‘s that is. Over a delicious intimate lunch, we chitchatted about the many things that happened in the past year, the gorgeous models they shot, the beautiful editorials they made and the amazing shows they (and sometimes I) saw. Can …

PARISIAN SCORE

PARISIAN SCORE

Just recently I managed to reduce the content of my wardrobe to a minimum of one rack (excluding coats, trousers and jeans), yes I am serious. In Paris I bought some descent ‘stuffing’ for the empty spaces in between what is left, a dark grey cashmere sweater and a snakeskin printed mens t-shirt, both from …

PICKING SCENTS

PICKING SCENTS

Back in the days – I am not sure to what time I am actually referring – I feel like all women had their signature scent. I guess it was the generations before my mom’s, since she really never had one and was always switching. I am a switcher too, though there is one perfume …
