WHITE QUILTED CLUTCH

This is the clutch I was holding yesterday, a white oversized quilted dream by J.W. Anderson.

CAMEL COAT

Just when I was hoping not yet to give up my hopes for an Indian summer, we skipped fall and went straight to winter? I would be lying if I would tell you that I am not a little bummed about it. I mean it is ok not being able to enjoy that rare Indian summer, but I am a sucker for fall, since it is my favorite season getting-dressed-wise after all. Fall is the perfect season to be exploring stores for winter gear, without making any decisions yet. It is perfect for in between clothes, mixing summer stuff with last years winter sweaters. Me, not wearing socks in these pictures is just my stubborn self still hoping to get my ankles tanned? Well, I guess I have to run and buy some turtlenecks… Old Style by Marina coat, Marc Jacobs scarf, Antipodium pants and J.W. Anderson clutch (via Young British Designers) and Nike shoes.

Just love how one is dressed super classy in all black while the other chose for a colorful print and bold accessories and still looks super classy.

THE GENTLEWOMAN

This is how I am going to spend my entire Saturday. Sitting outside on my roof terrace, all wrapped up in tons of clothes and blankets – since it is sunny but cold – reading the gentlewoman…in between work that is.

OLD STUFF

What to do with an old shoe? There are many many ways to get rid of the clothes, shoes and accessories you do not really get along with anymore. I mean the simplest way is to either throw or give it away, though under my roof throwing away only happens when something is torn or super worn. So what are the options exactly? Of course there is eBay – or any other online selling site – but I never really got along with that. Too many emails, too many questions. “What is your breast size? Do you think I will fit in with a double D?” It is just not my thing. What I usually tend to do is make a selection of what goes where. Most of it ends up being sold at the Closet Affair I try to organize bi-annually. I then take the rest of it, plus the Closet Affair leftovers to a secondhand store in Amsterdam. Everything they do not take in – they are pretty selective you know – goes directly to one of those containers. All items that do not get sold after three months of hanging in the secondhand store patiently waiting for a new owner are brought to a container as well. Now I know there is rumors that those clothes are going anywhere but to the people that need them the most and I really wish I could have control over that, but I do not see how at this point. I am super curious, what do you do with your old stuff? ph/ Lisa Galesloot

STRIPED SUIT

Back from one day of blog silence in that pinstriped Asos suit I talked about earlier this week. Here worn with a Zara t-shirt and my utterly painful leopard friends from Alexander Wang.
