A NAIL POLISH GUIDE TO RED

A NAIL POLISH GUIDE TO RED

A picture says more than a thousand words. And a set of well polished nails says more than a hundred handshakes. At least, in my opinion. Round, oval, square or pointed: regardless of your nail shape, there is one classic shade that works for all. The eternal color of love – and danger! – is …

FRENCH SUIT

FRENCH SUIT

It is Paris Fashion Week and I put my French suit on, the only thing not so French being my super sized sunglasses (probably a bit too much of an outer space vibe for the average Parisienne). And the fact that I wear an itsy bit of make up, just enough to prevent me from …

BOYFRIEND DENIM

BOYFRIEND DENIM

Here is the jeans in full top to bottom, albeit still hidden underneath a thick pile of other garments. I guess they are particularly good in summer with a chic pair of slides and either a silk crisp white shirt and a red lippy (plus the perfect cross body bag, where art thou?). Did I …

FIRST OF THE FIVE

It is official, my 5 piece French wardrobe game is on and the first of my five buys (counting from September 1st to February 28th (no it is not going to be easy, but definitely worth trying!)) is this leather jacket from Acne. It is their all-time classic piece and even though it is +24 …

THIS IS NEW YORK

THIS IS NEW YORK

A letter to the blizard that is said to hit New York in a few hours… Dear blizard, could you please just skip New York or wait until I am safely heading back to Amsterdam, please? I did not bring any proper shoes to conquer the snow, you see. Coat, COS; Sweater, Skirt and Bag, …
