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 …

FASHION WEEK CRAVINGS

FASHION WEEK CRAVINGS

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

MONTHLY CRAVINGS, SUMMER SWEATERS

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 …

RUCHED SKIRT

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 …

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). …

TENT SIZED

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

THE ULTIMATE SHIRT

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 …

ON WARDROBE STAPLES

ON WARDROBE STAPLES

Since it is so hard to find the perfect this and the perfect that, I thought I might share my personal list of favorite wardrobe staples. These are the functional ones that work for me on a regular daily basis. Basic t-shirts. Mine are from the men’s department at COS. Silk shirts, at least one …
