THE LAST CHAPTER

THE LAST CHAPTER

Wooh, this sounds like a really dramatic blog post title now doesn’t it? Well, it is definitely not as dramatic as it sounds. It refers to the third and last chapter of Ace & Tate’s summer frames (remember the first and second chapter?). This one is all about a clean and minimalistic approach through the …

SKINNY SCARF

SKINNY SCARF

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 …

SEEKING INSPIRATION

SEEKING INSPIRATION

While there are days that we spent almost entirely at the office, it can only be healthy to be out of office every now and then. Inspiration is everywhere and even though I have to admit that most of it comes from the internet (as literally everything can be found on the internet), I also …

A WEEK IN GLASSES

A WEEK IN GLASSES

Amsterdam based eyewear brand Ace & Tate (you might remember their frames from this story?!) recently launched a second chapter of Summer frames called Reckless Summer and I have to admit it’s hard for me to not fall in love with a few of their frames every time they launch a new drop. Reckless Summer …

CUSTOM MADE DENIM

CUSTOM MADE DENIM

Yep, here we go again. Another story about denim. But this time it’s a little bit different… Finding the ‘perfect’ (as in REALLY perfect) pair of jeans is like finding a needle in a hay stack. Or maybe even worse. There is just so much that needs to be right – color, fit, washing, etc., …

#SHADESOFCOACH

#SHADESOFCOACH

A few weeks ago – on our first ‘ok for bare legs’ day of the year – I visited Haarlem to test drive my new Coach sunglasses (two pairs of them, to be exact) for a project called #ShadesofCoach. Haarlem is a littler and quieter version of Amsterdam and I would say that the best …

MOM JEANS

MOM JEANS

Hello Monday! Let’s talk a little bit about my morning routine, now shall we? Be warned though, as it involves a lot of denim and an overload of coffee.

JUMPING INTO SPRING

JUMPING INTO SPRING

Admittedly I was a bit early announcing Spring on March 1st. It is just that I find the first few days of Spring the most exciting days of the year. I would literally give up my birthday to get more first days of Spring. I would even go as far as saying that I might …

DIY PAINTED DENIM

DIY PAINTED DENIM

It seems like I have caught the DIY flu. After that beaded boyfriend denim I got inspired by the Dries van Noten Fall 2012 Menswear show (this look to be exact (seriously if I was a man I would want to wear Dries head to toe, always)) to do another little creative something with denim …

DIY BEADED DENIM

DIY BEADED DENIM

It’s been a while since I last DIY’d and even though it always makes me feel like I am back in kindergarten, I do like to get all crafty every once in a while. I love how it automatically adds a little something extra, that personal touch that often makes an outfit. And so I …
