SKINNY SCARF

Tags: , ,

I might be a bit late to the game when it comes to the skinny scarf. You know, since David Bowie wore them in his Ziggy Stardust era in the early 70’s and Miuccia Prada told us they were back for Fall/Winter 2014 (the season that actually requires a big fat one, or at least where I am from). Fast forward to July 2015 and they have shashay’ed their way into my wardrobe.

FASHION WEEK CRAVINGS

Tags: , , , , , , ,

September is THE month of international Fashion Weeks, with Paris being my absolute favorite – no need for explanation here, I believe. Apart from attending marvelous shows, visiting inspiring showrooms and having cosy dinners with fashion buds, I always gawk at what goes on on the streets.

MONTHLY CRAVINGS, SUMMER SWEATERS

Tags: , , , , , , ,

Dutch summer temperatures in between 20 and 25°C ask for my ultimate favorite combo – summer sweaters and shorts! That moment when you’re watching the sun go down and it starts to get an itsy bit cooler. The end of a long day at the beach…I heart it. Extremely comfortable, super cozy and the perfect silhouette. Plus, legs look instantly more petite with a bulky sweater on top, what’s not to like?

RUCHED SKIRT

Yep, that’s a skirt! A ruched skirt to be exact. It’s becoming a little less of a rare sight seeing me wearing a skirt and I am even eyeing a python printed yellow stunner (on sale!) at the moment. Oh, and an over the knee fluted hem skirt. Not sure if that’s going to happen though, since I have to find a way to justifiably squeeze (one of) them into my 5 Piece French Wardrobe system first.

LEOPARD SWEATER

Somehow a leopard sweater just really makes sense all of a sudden. Yay or nay?

THE (TRANSITIONING?) EDIT

Tags: , , , , , , , , ,

When I think transitioning into Fall, I think cashmere sweaters, tied around your waste that is. Worn with an all-seasons-appropriate silk shirt and pony haired heels (these are old, and even though I told you once that they hurt like there is a stapler attached to your feet (ouch!), they are one of my favorites). And an umbrella, never forget the umbrella! Shirt, Equipment; Umbrella, Muji; Shoes, Alexander Wang; Earrings, Luv Aj; Sunglasses, Ace & Tate; Clutch, Giorgio Armani; Belt, random; Cashmere Sweater, Zadig et Voltaire.

TENT SIZED

Ok, so I know it is some sort of a thing that when wearing baggy on the bottom, you are supposed to wear something more fitted on top. Or the other way around. Then why is it that I like to break that rule so much?

THE ULTIMATE SHIRT

Tags: , , ,

While walking back from Opening Ceremony to my hotel yesterday, I saw a fruit market on Melrose Place and got distracted by the Equipment store sign. I have literally tried on their Signature shirt over a thousand times (probably also in a thousand colors (never really made it to the cash register with one of them)), but never tried it in Fiery Red and since I was eyeing that color online, I thought it would be a good idea to quickly hop in and out to see if was for me. I ended up trying on both that gorgeous red and this washed black one pictured above and doubted for what must have been at least half an hour. I almost wanted to get them both (trust me, that sales woman was good!!), when my friend Caroline made me come to my senses when she told me that I should give up trying to want to wear color all the time if it is just not my thing. And so I ended up getting my good old favorite color. ps: I know, I know, another shirt?! Just trying to add more summer uniform options… Silk Shirt, Equipment (never get one in Europe, they are way more affordable in the US).
