today’s look: for sale

(more pictures below) Tweet The striped sweater (Vanillia), skirt (H&M) and belt are for sale. This look has quite a lot going on. I think it’s fresh, there’s some color blocking, mixed prints and some neon. It shows that different things don’t necessarily ‘don’t work’. The jacket is vintage, the heels are Sam Edelman and the necklace is Zara.

today’s look: picknick amongst flowers

(more pictures below) Tweet And here’s the sun again! Although quite girly, I love wide skirts. They’re fun when I want to play with proportions. The 2 colors on this one add a little depth and enough balance to the floral top. The leather cobalt belt is vintage, the suede and leather heels are Zara. The clutch is by Mango.

today’s look: green gucci

(more pictures below) Tweet I love this look. The metallic jeans by H&M is my favorite jeans at the moment, love the zippers on the back. I’m wearing a black and white striped top, an H&M blazer and green scarf. This vintage Gucci bag is a very rare one and for me, bags with shoulder straps are rare as well but I do need one every now and then, and this one’s perfect!

today’s look: chic shorts

(more pictures below) Tweet I can’t believe we have had this kind of sunny weather for over a week now! The temperatures are amazing and so are these fabulous clothes I can wear every day. I love how ‘non-pink’ this look is. Wait, let me explain that. Usually, pink brings a lot of girliness or sweetness to a look, but not here, I think. This look is more chic, and fabulously effortless. And though the blouse is very deep pink, the shorts take it more into a burgundy kind of shade. My vintage Hermes Kelly bag was practically begging me to take her out of the dust bag, and I listened, without hesitation, as there is no cloud, and thus, no rain in sight. The silver vintage ring with amazing cut emerald stone is the only jewelry I’m wearing today.

today’s look: a little leopard

(more pictures below) Tweet This is the first summer in years, that I’ve gone without self tanning for so long. Something tells me I’m just over the whole tanning thing, I feel more chic this way. Let’s see how long I can keep it up… Today I’m wearing one of my favorite dresses, it’s it’s 3rd summer in my wardrobe and I just know I won’t grow tired of it anytime soon. The leather vintage belt is simply amazing, with the gorgeous golden print. The ballerina flats are Zara, the cheetah print bag (pony hair) is Mango. I’m in love.

today’s look: blazing sun

(more pictures below) Tweet And, just like that, summer’s here! Nothing shouts ‘sun’ like this dress, I think. Last summer, see pictures here, I totally colorblocked this dress with my favorite vintage Oscar de la Renta jacket, a rainbow necklace and a pair of marine flats. Today, however, I came across this amazing clutch, and, in no time, found the braided bangle and disco ball ring, and an idea was born. I pictured the desert sand dunes, under the blazing sun, so a more subtle color palette came to mind. I tried my (AWESOME!) spiked peep toe heels by Sam Edelman and that was it, no more needed! I hope you love it as much as I do.

today’s look: lost in lanvin

(more pictures below) Tweet Another grand love of mine, besides (the art of) fashion, is language, the art of using words, aliterations, and so on… This look is called lost in Lanvin for a reason. The vintage Lanvin jacket is fairly large, I might drown in it… I’m able to wear it as a short dress, which I love, on a pair of shorts or ‘just’ on a pair of tight pants. I love the contrast of the collar of the jacket with the flowiness of the red top. Also the business-feel of the jacket with the structured roses on the clutch. Love contrast! Makes a look so interesting. The structured floral red clutch and satin top are H&M, the floral pants Topshop.

(vintage) shopping in oldenburg, germany

Tweet For my birthday we went to Oldenburg, Germany. Beforehand I did some research as to where I would like to shop. First we went to Klamotte, a small shop with some nice vintage jewelry, some beautiful dresses and a lot of different brands. I bought a beautiful malachite brooch here and a little pendant with a greenish shell. On we went to Westend, a 5 minute drive from Klamotte. Westend is a consigment shop. It’s large, definitely not crammed and I bought a few amazing suede handmade shoes from Italy and a fabulous vintage belt there. I thought long and hard about an amazing crafted leather bag but decided to leave it there as I just got spoiled with my 3rd leather Zara tote. I would definitely go back to Westend and, since it’s so close, would give Klamotte

The knitted sweater is a vintage one, the bag is a vintage Mulberry bag.

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: mixing materials

Tweet Today I’m wearing these leather boots with a pair of skinny jeans, a lace top, a fur vest and a metallic clutch. It looks like I’m having a bit of a casual period, I guess the lack of sunshine and chilly winds are somewhat debet to that. Anyway, I’ll go with it and exploit this flow of casualness.
