today’s look: more marni

(more pictures below) Tweet No one will blame me: you love prints? Well you can’t escape loving Marni. My latest Marni-addition is this fabulous grey knitted sweater with a patent leather front panel. I am totally in love with every detail of it: the proportions and cut, the mixed materials and the colors! It’s totally effortless, too.

today’s look: grandma’s skirt

Tweet These leather boots are not ‘my’ average shoe, meaning that, if you look in my closet, the closest in style you will find is leather cowboy boots or studded ballerina flats, studded belts or spiked cuffs. But… I love ‘em! And it’s fun to mix with unexpected items, like a preppy jacket or this romantic skirt. I’m wearing an army-style jacket and a black lace top with it.

beautiful batik

Tweet I’m totally into batik-prints and fabrics right now. This shouldn’t come as a surprise considering I’m all about prints and colors. The different colors and patterns are so beautiful to me, plus the fact that this ancient technique is still around for us, amazes me. Batik is a medium that lies somewhere between art and craft, and is believed to be at least 2000 years old. You can read all about it here. These 3 different fabrics are two scarfs, see here how I’m wearing the reddish one, and one larger piece of fabric which I’m currently using as a tablecloth.

today’s look: in the mix

Tweet I always share how I love mixing prints and fabrics. It can give me the richest feeling. Today I’m wearing my orange cashmere sweater, as it just feels a bit chilly. I love the satin snakeprint vintage blouse with it and chose the studded belt and studded suede shoes. These chunky Marni x H&M necklaces I will save for next time.

today’s look: gorgeous from greece

Tweet This is one of my favorite vintage dresses, from Greece. I love the colors, the fabric, the print and the classic cut. The leather peeptoe heels are Zara, the necklace I custom myself (vintage necklace and vintage butterfly brooch), the red bangle is vintage and the wood and yellow bangle and red patent look clutch are from Steps, a Dutch brand.

today’s look: green love

Tweet For quite some years, green has been my favorite color. I do love about every color there is, but green tops them all. A rich, emerald green piece of clothing, a shiny green scarf or a green suede bag just makes my heart jump, instantly. This green pair of leggings by Versace x H&M just raise the bar a little. Love green x love prints = more to love! This outfit is a perfect layered one for spring, when it gets warm during the day I take the scarf or the jacket off. The dress is H&M, the heels Zara, the leather jacket I bought in a Dutch boutique and the bag is a black leather vintage one I bought in Paris last week.

how to wear: beware matchy-matchy

Tweet We fashion freaks like our looks interesting, tantalizing, absurd even! Ofcourse it’s ok to play it safe when you’re in doubt or just having an off-day. I certainly have my ‘playing-it-safe’-moments. When you feel like taking a chance, keep these notes in mind: * focus on one eye catcher, whether it’s a pop of color, a clash of prints, a lot of accessories, or very special shoes, or… (I could go on here) * make sure you take your hair, makeup and coat into account too (a pixie cut adds a little something different than, say, a wild bob). * finally: it’s often a matter of gut-feeling: only you know what suits you and your personality. Be inspired and have a great weekend!

today’s look: prints galore

Tweet This is the 3rd way I’m wearing this sweater and, I have to say, I like this one the best. A mix of prints and fabrics (silk, snakeskin, wool, suede) like this totally throws me into a frenzy, a very, very happy one. Notes: Ofcourse there is a limit to what you can add. I’ve toned down quite a bit in this look, even though you might not notice it at first sight. The black shoes, tights and clutch create some balance. Printed silk skirt is Versace x H&M, top and wedges are H&M, leather belt and snakeskin clutch are vintage.

today’s look: part prada

Tweet I love this look, it says: I’m ready for business, and tells an interesting story as well. The vintage double breasted Armani jacket is one of my favorites, the cut is simply amazing. I love the paisley-esque print the vintage blouse has and I found just the perfect pair of bangles to go with it. A quick look won’t even tell the bangles apart from the blouse. The fitted pants are Asos, I love the color and they just feel like a dream. A pair of lace socks, black heels and the ever gorgeous Prada bag, and I’m good to go! Een super-outfit, deze, geschikt voor een kantoordag en toch interessant. Het vintage jasje met dubbele rij knopen van Armani is een van mijn favorieten, het is geweldig gesneden; net als de designs van Oscar de la Renta valt

today’s look: marni & moschino

Tweet Today I’m wearing a gorgeous Moschino skirt, paired with a rough leather biker jacket and my suede Marni boots. I’ll try to come up with a look for this skirt with my Moschino belt soon, but the biker jacket got there first. Though this isn’t my typical style, I do have my (more or less) ‘biker’ moments although, as you can see, I always mix in something chic or elegant. The clutch, by the way, is by Asos. Vandaag draag ik een Moschino rok, met een ruig leren ‘biker’ jasje en m’n suede Marni laarzen. Ik probeer binnenkort een combi te maken met deze rok en mijn Moschino riem, ik moest het biker jasje eerst zijn ’15 minutes of fame’ geven, vandaar. Hoewel ik deze look niet typeer als een echte Suzanne-look, heb ik toch min of meer m’n

today’s fashion week look: pretty prints

Tweet Today I’m wearing this nice mix of different prints, the longer I look at them the more I love ‘em. My quilted lambskin Chanel bag gives the perfect classic counterbalance to the prints and the bold shoes (by River Island). I would wear this outfit to the Peter Som fashion show. Vandaag draag ik deze mix van verschillende prints, ze zijn prachtig samen. Hoe langer ik ernaar kijk, hoe mooier het geheel wordt. M’n quilted lamsleren Chanel tas geeft het perfecte klassieke tegenwicht aan de prints en de pittige schoenen (van River Island). Dit zou ik dragen naar een show van Peter Som.

how to wear a big tote

Tweet I’m showing you different ways to wear a big tote/bag. Besides practical (you can carry everything around if you want to), a tote or large bag can also make a statement as well as add balance to a look. As you can see in the pictures I mostly use my Zara leather tote to add some polish to an otherwise structured dress or a bold print. The other way around works too, adding a pleated bag or one with a print like my Louis Vuitton sac plat, to an even-colored or silk smooth jumpsuit.

today’s look: crazy couture

Tweet Today I’m wearing a dress with a traditional batik pattern. I wanted to work it the couture way, mind you this is not actually a couture dress. For the elaborate definition of (haute) couture please read this blog post. I’m wearing this dress with my snakeskin print heels, a Salvatore Ferragamo shoulder bag and an impressive feather headpiece. Vandaag draag ik een jurk met een traditioneel batik patroon. Ik wilde deze look een couture-twist geven, de jurk is geen couture jurk zoals de titel misschien doet vermoeden. De uitgebreide definite van (haute) couture lees je in deze blog post. Ik draag deze jurk met slangenprint pumps, een Salvatore Ferragamo schoudertasje en een indrukwekkende haarband.

Today’s look: a nice mixture

(klik 2 keer op een foto voor het grootste exemplaar) Vandaag draag ik een lange taille-rok in een grafische print met een effen top erboven, daaronder een zwart kanten hemdje (alles #HM). Naast de print van de rok maken de details deze outfit interessant, de knoopjes waarmee de rok sluit achter, en de achterkant van de poederroze top. Een paar handgemaakte oorbellen uit Griekenland met swarovski kristallen, die ik van mijn echtgenoot kreeg voor onze 9e verjaardag, geven het geheel wat allure. Erg leuk detail vind ik de combinatie van het patroon van de vintage tas en de print van de rok. Een eenvoudig zwart haarbandje en een armband, beide in slangenprint, maken het geheel af. Geen hakken vandaag, een paar eenvoudige Chanel-stijl ballerina’s (#HM) zijn heerlijk comfortabel en ik vind dat deze outfit met hakken te chic zou worden
