today’s look: it’s my party

(more pictures below) Tweet And I wear what I want to! Today is my 34th birthday so I’m celebrating in all kinds of different ways: cake, presents (I’ll be sharing soon), family, ice cream and… beautiful clothes! This silk vintage dress just took my breath away, the first time I saw it. I must admit, that happens to me a lot when I see something beautiful. #instanthappiness Although I do have quite a few special dresses, this one is not your average party dress. It’s heavy, handmade, colorful, well-tailored, amazing! The weather today doesn’t fully agree with me on this dress, but as I wrote: it’s my party and I’ll wear what I want to. The leather heels are Zara, the clutch is H&M and the necklace is custom made by me. Happy birthday to me! (dress in detail &

today’s look: casually me

Tweet I love a casual outfit although I don’t wear casual looks often. And, when i do, there has to be a little something here and there. Like the sequins on this shirt, the leather sneakers with a snakeskin print and cut and the amazing leather tote, which I have in burgundy as well. (I’m thinking about asking the black one for my birthday, I just love these bags from Zara.) So, although casual, there’s a bit more to this look that looks like it’s been thrown together. When do I wear this? I think it’s perfect for a bbq, tea with a friend or taking my five year old grocery shopping. Wanna see how I transition this look to evening? Check out this today’s look Blue Glam, taken last summer. Jeans and top: H&M Jacket: Dutch brand Leather tote:

today’s look: check please!

Tweet I love how this look came together. I was looking for shoes and saw these boots in my closet. I bought them about 8 years ago, have worn them a couple of times, will probably never get rid of them because I love them, they’re timeless and so classy. The pointy toes and sock-like shaft just do it for me. So I’ve paired them with my red Mango trousers and vintage top, I feel they’re just so perfect together that I wouldn’t dare separate them. (See this look ‘Perfectly Paris‘) I added this H&M jacket I just got, grabbed the snake print clutch that was right in front of me, prepared my camera and like 1-2-3, finished, probably, in under 30 minutes. Let me tell you: things can take much, much longer. I love the slightly androgynous take on

how to wear: sequins

(click pictures for larger view) Tweet Sequins always give me a festive feeling, and the candy-for-your-eyes-factor makes them a joy to watch. A few pointers: * start out wearing sequins with a pair of jeans or an edgy/rough styled item. The contrast will make for an interesting look. * a sequined shawl or vest is an easy way to spice up your look and you can wear it all year round. * sequins don’t combine with sequins easily, make sure you know what you’re doing, unless your aim is to look like a circus clown. * when in doubt, take off your accessories so the sequins can bring their magic. Have fun with it!

Tweet I adore this vintage wool skirt trousers, everything about it is just perfect. The color for starters, the pleats, the buttons! Oh my, I’m in skirt trousers heaven today.

Naast alle klassieke items heb ik gekozen voor een enorme aparte ring met een stierenkop. Ik

Tweet Today I’m finally wearing my Proenza Schouler ballerina flats. Have been waiting an actual piece of New York design in all my NYFW looks.

today’s look: so zebra

Today I’m wearing one of my favorite maxi dresses with a sequined vest, zebra ballerina flats and a chunky necklace which adds a tribal accent to this outfit. This has been one of my favorite summer looks since last summer, I love how the dress drapes on the floor, it’s almost a little train this way. Vandaag draag ik een van m’n favoriete maxi-jurken met een gilet met pailletten, zebra-print ballerina’s en een grote ketting welke een ‘tribal’-accent toevoegt aan deze look. Deze look is sinds vorige zomer 1 van mijn favoriete zomer-outfits, ik hou ervan hoe de jurk een klein sleepje maakt op de vloer.

today’s look: casually rich

click images for bigger view Today I’m wearing an easy going look, though there’s something very rich about the colors and the accessories I added. A simple skinny jeans and knitted sweater form some solid ground. My sequined ballerina flats (in bronze, gold and silver) and necklace (in gold, brown and wood) add some glamour. I especially love this series of bangles I put together: two simple wooden ones and one covered with gold tone pieces and last but not least: one animal-shaped carved bangle. Finally, my vintage leather look bag adds a bit of business. Vandaag draag ik een casual outfit, toch heeft deze look een chique uitstraling door de kleuren en de accessoires erbij. Een simpele skinny jeans en een gebreide trui vormen de basis. M’n ballerina’s met pailletten (in brons, goud en zilver) en de ketting (in
