Just like Yves Saint Laurent changed (part of) its name a couple of weeks ago, Cacharel is doing kind of the same. Adding Paris to the already existing. What do you think of all the name changing? Smart move? Or ‘what the heck are they thinking’ kind of move?
One of the most often asked questions I get is probably what beauty products I am currently using. Of course I am no expert in this area, but I would say I am quite particular choosing my products. Let me introduce to you a monthly overview of my current favorites, starting with:
L’eau de Chloé perfumed bubbles
Origins ginger souffle whipped body cream
Yves Saint Laurent (or is it Saint Laurent Paris?) Touche Éclat 2
Chanel Le Vernis in April, May and June
It’s Fashion Week in Amsterdam! This is what you can expect from me, a major load of photos to kinda show you the events and shows through my eyes.
The identical Dutch sisters Spijkers en Spijkers had the honor to kick off the week with their SIS by Spijkers en Spijkers S/S 2012 collection called Bain du Soleil. A collection inspired by seaside visitors in France and Olympic swimmers with Marie Braun as their muse.
Last season, Jan Taminau kicked off Fashion Week with his amazing collection so well that I think it’s hard for a ready-to-wear brand to top that off…and they didn’t. To me, the collection can be called fun and easy, but not really something that filled me with excitement, even though some of the colors did make me pretty excited (mint green, yummy!). It’s not that I think the collection was bad or ugly, but I’ve seen those sisters done better (previous two seasons) and I just think an openings evening needs something just a tad more special to make the guests excited for the rest of the week.
After SIS by Spijkers en Spijkers and a short break, it was time for Tony Cohen to show his new collection. There were floaty dresses in a lot of different colors and prints and as some of you might have read on my Twitter, this wasn’t really my cup of tea. I did like some of the pants though (last picture).
Over all, the evening was ok and on other notes, the fact that there was a Frozz stand in the fashion tents made my day.

I’m a big fan of headwear on others, but I always have to get used to hats and stuff on myself. I’ve had this one for a while now and it still had the cards attached. I decided to rip ‘em off and walk outside with the hat as quickly as I could, before I got the chance to take it off again. Seems like in the end of all I kinda dig it and the outfit would have been pretty damn boring without it.
ps/ I’m still sick (another flu) and trying to decide wether to go to Fashion Week today or not…I want to go so badly!

For the last outfit I went for an eveningdress from Lanvin, which doesn’t need much accessories other than red lips and matching shoes. Now the Lanvin x H&M collection didn’t really make me jump up and down, since I thought the quality wasn’t worth the pricetags. The real thing certainly did and I must admit I died a little when I had to return this black beauty at the end of the day.
