For as long as I can remember, I have been looking for a perfect blue cotton shirt. One that is even more perfect than the ones I have been borrowing from my boyfriend ever since I gave up on my search because his were just good enough. When I secretly took one of his to Paris and then accidentally ironed a hole in its sleeve (oops!) I knew it was time to continue my search for the perfect one, one that was not too fitted, one that looked I was still borrowing my boyfriends.

When Rika invited me to have a look at their new F/W ’13 collection – hashtag musthaveitall – I could not help myself but hop in their store across the street. I guess you can already guess what I found in between all the goodies from Alexander Wang and Proenza…

Shirt, Rika; Leather Pants, Hunkydory; Clutch, Acne (via SMETS); Cap, Gina Tricot.

  1. Oh dear, is dat op je gezicht, die brandplek van die crème? Hopelijk trekt het snel weg..

    1. @Jet: Ja klopt, heb nu medicijnen gekregen en als het goed is moet het binnen een week wegtrekken…

  2. Nice shirt! Your clutch looks amazing

  7. Heerlijke look! Zo’n perfecte blauwe blouse hadden ze vorig seizoen ook bij Acne, helaas was die niet meer in mijn maat…


  8. Hopelijk is je huid snel weer beter, gek hoeveel schade 1 crème kan aanrichten op zo’n korte tijd. Nevertheless, zie je er nog steeds super uit. IK heb de laatste tijd al veel gelezen over Rika, moet ik zeker eens langs gaan de volgende keer dat ik in Amsterdam ben.

  16. Love the shirt, the cap is awesome too, really need to invest in one!

  17. Oh no! My sister had the same allergic reaction from a face mask recently. It also took a week to go away. But don’t worry, it looks like you’ve got some street credibility now ;-)

  18. Please, could you give me the link to buy the blue shirt? What´s the trademark? Thank you from Spain…

    1. @Alma: They don’t have an online shop yet, but it’s coming soon!

  19. I am looking for one like that, but cannot find it either!

    XOXO Maud
