BOOKS

Ah…books. I love books, especially when they are so big they are hard to carry. Apart from giving me a big boost of inspiration every time I flip through the pages, books are a great decoration for the home.

IRREVERENT

Tags: ,

Hooray for the final arrival of my Christmas present…to myself that is. Every year I give myself a cool present, something that I wouldn’t usually buy so easily, something that I really really want to have, something that isn’t a piece of clothing or a pair of shoes. This time I ordered Carine Roitfeld’s Irreverent, a 360 page consisting visual history of Carine’s career in fashion. A career that I’m highly intrigued by, even though I wouldn’t see myself working as an editor-in-chief at Vogue magazine (not that they would hire me, but still). Sure, the book is self-serving. But that’s what makes it so cool. I mean, my blog is kinda self-serving too, no? But isn’t that what a part of fashion is about nowadays? To get yourself out there and to give the opinion and story an actual face, literally. I just received the book, so I haven’t completely read it ofcourse, but I can’t wait to do so and to get a small glimpse of the woman that’s living inside the fashionable 56-year old Parisienne.

ULTIMATE CHRISTMAS WISHLIST

Tags: , , , , ,

Just because there’s always things to wish for, and there should be. I mean, how boring would life be, if you could have it all? A gold Cartier L⊝ve bracelet to get the arm party started again. I used to wear tons of bracelets all together, but I got rid of most of them and now I actually miss a little something pretty around my wrist. An English Bulldog that Lesley and I are going to name Boelie. We’re currently looking for an appartment and we’re planning on getting a dog even before buying a couch, I kid you not. A nice darkblue flare to switch my skinny jeans with. It elongates ones legs so much and that’s something I definitely can use sometimes as I’m not the tallest girl in town. Carine Roitfeld – Irreverent. < already on its way to mama. A Christmas present from me, to me. A lace bra, to peek out underneath the overload of tanktops that I own. I just never bumped into the perfect one…yet. Shoes, lots of them, especially these Céline sandals. I’ve been having an eye on them for a looong looong time now. A Proenza Schouler PS11, in burgundy to be precise. I made a deal with myself that I can only buy one designer bag a year. This way, I make sure it’s a bag that I really truly am in love with and also a bag that. I’m going to use more often than once. The perfect silk white shirt, from Equipment perhaps? Tiny little necklaces, like these worn by Miranda Kerr. Can anyone id? Some cute tops. Seriously, I happen to opt for simple t-shirts every time I send myself to go shop for cute tops. Boooring! And above all, an apartment in Amsterdam for Lesley and I. ph/ Jak and Jil, Blame it on Fashion, Lulu and your Mom, Fashiontoast, Miranda Kerr for Rag & Bone
