Fashion is everywhere

QUEENSDAY

Tags:

Queensday in Amsterdam is the only day we are allowed to sell our stuff on the streets. I decided to organize a super tiny Closet Affair with my two girls Caroline and Margot and give it a try. We got up at 4am to make sure we would be ready for the first customers that usually start bargain hunting around 5am. We had so much fun betting -while not being completely awake- on items that would go first and strangely never got sold. All items that I did not sell are going to a good cause. See you next year?

The question that often pops up in interviews is what inspires me. To be honest, it is always different. I am not the one to be giving a cheesy answer like ‘I get inspiration from everywhere, anything’, but it does change all the time. One day I am obsessing over this, the other day I get an inspiration boost from that. ph/ Stop it Right Now, Vogue Germany, Stockholm Streetstyle, unknown

Aaand back to the usual black, with what it seems to be tons of layers that is. Can you believe I am wearing a woolen coat in April? COS jacket, Queens Wardrobe coat, Eudon Choi leather top, Samsoe & Samsoe leather pants, Zara shoes and Céline sunglasses and bag. ph/ Lisa Galesloot

INTERIOR

Tags: ,

Since I moved in with my boyfriend last month, I am all about interior inspiration. I buy interior design magazines instead of fashion ones and I tent to pin most images into my Places and Spaces board on Pinterest for inspiration. I would describe my style as clean and modern, mixed with a bit of industrial, but I am in no way an expert in this area. All I know for sure is that I am currently dreaming of an all white bedroom and that I have a thing for ugly vases. There is probably going to be some small slices of our apartment on my blog soon but until then, my Pinterest will have to do. ph/ Fashiontoast, Therese Sennerholt by Ulrika Eriksson, Lonny Magazine, unknown

This is what we can call an outfit randomly thrown on and even more randomly put together whilst in a hurry. Not to be getting all sentimental, but when I am stressed and trying to get ready in the morning I seem to pretend like I am going to get married. I grab something old -the jeans-, something new -the bag-, something borrowed -the shirt- and something blue -the boots. I am by the way finally starting to feel a bit better now and catching up with the piles of work that needs to be done before the end of the year. Exciting things ahead!

This is what I usually look like when not working from the afterDRK hq, but from home instead. A jeans and a t-shirt, any random jeans and any random t-shirt to be honest. I do not put too much effort, though it has to be something that can easily be dressed up with a jacket/jumper and a pair of heels for running to meetings. These photos were obviously taken before I started feeling sick. I am still not feeling quite well so I am kind of in the same couch mode, though in pj’s and with an even bigger cup of tea.

(SUPER) OFF-SEASON

Tags: , ,

No, these are not my sexiest pair of shoes and they are super off-season as well, what made me get those Sorel boots? Every winter I am on the hunt for the perfect winter boot to keep my toes from freezing and every year the snow arrives either early or not at all. Then there is also the CPW (cost per wear) issue, how many times am I actually going to wear these? And the being sold out everywhere issue, because I tent to miss the boat often in this winter boot case. I usually kind of survive on my Pistol boots and staying inside as much as I can, but those days are definitely over now that I bumped into these during spring and finally just went for them.

The flu has gotten to me once again, so the main things I will be doing today is drinking liters of water, eating tons of fruit and…sleep. What are your plans for the day? ph/ ViewSofia, Park and Cube, Blame it on Fashion, unknown
