24 HOURS IN FIRENZE

Tags: , , , ,

One day you are shopping for a plant at Ikea, the next day you find yourself on the first plane to Italy. Tommy Hilfiger invited me to Firenze for the launch event of their Tommy Hilfiger x Blauer limited edition outerwear collection. There are only 200 pieces in each of the four styles and the cool part is that every piece will have its own unique number. I already picked my favorite! I arrived at the hotel pretty early and got hooked up with the most amazing room ever, or should I say apartment? I was staying in the Torre Monalda suite and had a gorgeous 360-degree view over Firenze and its surroundings. Around 6pm a New York city cab picked me up to drive me to the event held at the Tommy Hilfiger store at Piazza Degli Antinori, which was packed with cool people. We ended the night having dinner at a real Italian restaurant and I have to say there weren’t many hours left to take a nap before I had to go back to the airport. I wore a Zadig & Voltaire top, H&M Trend leather skirt and Mango shoes.

Excuse the background! I guess you can guess where Lesley and I went home shopping the other day. I usually like to decorate my house with more unusual items than this, but it is perfect for basics no? This was the only chance we had shooting what I was wearing, so we thought to make the best out of it. The water paint print on this jacket is one of the very few printed items I own. I have to add it is not because I am against prints, but it is just hard to find the right one. Like finding the perfect flat sandals. I am about to board my flight to Florence for something pretty exciting, more on that later! I wore a Minusey jacket, H&M Trend top, Isabel Marant top, Dr Denim jeans and Céline bag and sandals.

LEOPARD

Tags: , , , ,

Every year when the weather is starting to ask for sandals, I am having such a hard time finding the perfect flat ones that I just give up and wear heels or sneakers instead. Some already hurt when trying them on, some have too many straps, some are plastic, there is just always something off. That was until I found these at Zara. Since my local post office has failed to deliver them on time -once again-, I am kind of losing my patience though. I guess I am too impatient to be shopping online, so here is a note to myself: Do NOT ever shop online anymore unless there is next day delivery available. I will probably just ignore that anyway. ph/ Glitzer Glitzer

Well hello there light blue leather jacket! Isn’t this jacket just a-ma-zing? You rarely see me in colors other than black, white or grey, but this light blue stole my heart a little. I love how the softness of the light blue works so well on a ‘rough’ material like leather, even though the leather is super buttery soft. I was wearing a J.W. Anderson leather jacket, Samsoe & Samsoe jumper, Dr Denim jeans, mango shoes, cooee diamond ring ph/ Lisa Galesloot

AMÉLIE RIECH x PACO RABANNE

Tags: ,

Paco Rabanne seems to be back. Their PacoLab provides creative talents the opportunity to combine theyr own philosophy to the design heritage of the Spanish-French fashion house. This time the creative talent is Amélie Riech, a fashion editor and designer of her own label Uncommon Matters, living between Berlin and Paris. She created typical gold Rabanne jewelry, made from metal and frosted glass. Now you all know I love myself a statement piece when it comes to jewelry and I knew the minute I saw this brilliantly done lookbook, I just had to post it. Sometimes all you need is a strapless – or see-through metallic – dress, a cool hairdo and not to mention those metallic heels. ph/ Vogue

This is how I roll each and every single day no matter what I am wearing – whether it is silver pants and sneakers or a fancy dress – or what the weather does. I do not have a car (my boyfriend does though and I am free to use it but I never do) and I rarely take public transport. Bikes are everywhere in Amsterdam, there is actually even more bikes than people if I am correct, and it is the quickest way to get around. Zara shirt, H&M Trend pants, New Balance shoes, Linda Farrow sunglasses and a Michael Kors watch. ph/ Lisa Galesloot

LUCK IS AN ATTITUDE

Tags: , ,

advertorial – Luck to me is something that sometimes just randomly happens, but can also be enforced. It is a way of acting, making the right choices, sometimes the wrong. It is an attitude. It happens that Martini is looking for someone with that attitude, in collaboration with king of shoes Christian Louboutin, they are looking for a someone that wants to earn 150.000 euro’s, 12 pairs of Christian Louboutin shoes, 12 designer outfits and a leading role in the new Martini commercial in 2013. Who would not want that? The Martini Royale Casting officially kicked of in London on May 23rd and will end on July 9th. It is open to all women older than 25. All you have to do is upload a short clip to the Facebook page of the Italian liquor brand and tell the world your charisma just screams ‘Luck is an Attitude’. ph/unknown

A description of this collection would not really get me jumping up and down from excitement. Oversized money-print patterns on oversized anything, really? Seeing these images though, proofs once again that Jonny Johansson is a true genius. Inspired by Madonna’s Ray of Light video and the girls from the streets, Johansson went for silk, treated cottons, bermuda shorts and lots of button-ups. Even leather was used in this collection that is meant to be worn in the warmer months of the year. Works for Acne! ph/ Vogue

This outfit in my opinion totally reflects what a pair of reflecting sunglasses can do. This ensemble would be totally boring without the sunglasses. I mean, the ripped parts in the boyfriend jeans give it a little boost, but the real boost is coming from the spectacular spectacles. Rag & Bone sunglasses, Samsoe & Samsoe jumper, Acne jeans, Tommy Hilfiger shoes and Michael Kors watch. ph/ Lisa Galesloot
