DUSTY

Tags: , , ,

Thought it was time to get the dust of this multi-colored jumper and give it some time out of the closet. I have not worn it in a while -same goes for the pants- but I am more than happy that they are back and we can be friends again after a long cold winter.

NAVAJO BELT

Tags:

This is the easiest DIY I ever did and will probably ever do. It literally took me five minutes -though finding the perfect ribbon took me longer than that. Supplies: a belt scissors (not pictured) some sort of decorative ribbon (I am not sure what it is called in English) glue for leather nailpolish remover (aceton free) cotton wool 1. Cut the ribbon. 2. Make sure the belt is oil free before applying the glue. I used nailpolish remover, but I am sure there is a 100 other ways to do this. 3. Apply the glue to the belt and add the ribbon. 4. Let it dry.

WINDOW SHOPPING

Tags: , , , , , , ,

Natalia Kills sings that window shopping is overrated, but actually really like it from time to time. Sometimes I just want to go to the city to browse the stores without any intent to purchase. To see what’s new, to get inspired, or to just kill time in between appointments. It is something I do -not only with clothes and shoes, but also with magazines. As I stated before I am not really a huge magazine reader, but when I do, I go to this specific store at Spui in Amsterdam. They have the best international magazines, some well known, some a bit less famous, which attract me the most.

Despite the fact that some think these pants look like I just peed in them, I love them. I am sorry for keeping it short today, but I have to speed to an interview right now… H&M Trend pants, Samsoe & Samsoe jumper and Mango sandals. ph/ Lisa Galesloot

UPSIDE DOWN

Tags: ,

After not wearing many earrings for a couple of years -with an exception every now and then- I decided to copy the April issue of French Vogue and pierce an upside down cross through my ear (+ a tiny little red stud). I still have to decide what to do with the other ear, but I kind of like to leave it empty.

DON’T THINK TWICE IT’S ALRIGHT

Tags: ,

I have to admit I do not read a lot of Dutch magazines, but I do like to dig into some of the international magazines and their editorials every now and then. Few of my favorites -apart from the obvious French Vogue- are Danish Cover, Elin Kling’s Styleby and Russh magazine, especially back when Stevie Dance was still at the fashion helm, styling the stories. ph/ Nick Dorey for Russh

DON’T THINK TWICE IT’S ALRIGHT

CROSSWALK

Tags: , , , , ,

Every woman should have a suit in her closet. It usually takes a while to find the perfect one -or two- but once you find it, there should be no doubt. I personally see it as an investment thing, I mean mine was not exactly the cheapest available, but it fits me well and I think it can be counted as three pieces instead of two -a suit, a jacket ánd pants. I tried to dress up a little in this case, but I still wanted to make it look kind of casual by adding a buttery soft leather tank by Eudon Choi and fun, colored sandals.

RIKA

Tags: ,

Rika has to be one of my favorite stops in Amsterdam. To be able to view the collection before it hits the shelves is a privilege, but at the same time a pain in the bum (or need I say wallet?). It makes you splurge on items in your head before you even have the money to splurge with. The little piercing that goes through their fuzzy jumpers, not to mention the buttery soft leather jackets, oh dear…
