And, what do you think about the animal/leopard print trend? Do animal prints also come natural to you? At first, I had to get used to it but now I can’t wait to get these two exotic items delivered!

Outfit || Color the snow

januari 28, 2013

Ph// AnnisaGM
And here it is: the whole outfit! What do you think? Have I done a good job by wearing a colorful outfit during these cold days? 🙂

Remember I told you about the wintercoat? The quality was so bad and it looked so bad that I didn’t wear it anymore. But, I threw away the receipt! In the end, I went to the Bershka store in Amsterdam and told them about the jacket. It’s because I have a Bachelor’s degree in Law that I know about something about Dutch consumer law, so I used my knowledge and told them that an item must accord to expectations for at least 6 months and they took the coat back! But, since I didnt have the receipt, I didn’t get my money back, instead I could ‘shop’ for the amount of the coat. That was a whole new experience of shopping! Spending 80 euros without spending it literally (of course I did, but it didn’t feel that way :p)!

Hope you learned something today! Don’t forget to:
1. Always keep your receipt
                           2. Go back to the store if an item did not accord to your expectations for a period of at least 6 months! 
Love, Farah
What I’m wearing:
Green Coat: New Yorker 30
Sweater: Bershka 13 (now on sale)
Skirt: Bershka 6 (now on sale)
Bag: Zara 20 (now on sale)
Necklace: Avelon 20
Shoes: Primark 5

Sometimes you just wanna hide in your clothes..In this case I did that by using my sweater as a cap! I love the beanies I see on every girl but somehow it doesn’t suit me.  
Have you noticed that I’m very into grey and black lately? Well, who doesn’t love those colours? But I noticed that these last days I’m wearing grey and black all the time! Blame it on the Winter, which has arrived here in the Netherlands. And since it’s super cold, I think I will wear this sweater a lot. 
Maybe it’s time for some color again! When the sun comes out of hiding again I will brighten up my outfits too!..;):)
Love, Farah

Leather jacket: H&M 30

New in || Zara Shopper

januari 13, 2013

Hi lovelies!
How was your weekend? Last week was a busy and emotional week for me. Normally I’m not that kinda person that talks/says alot about my personal life but sometimes is a good thing to do.
Last week I took care of my mother. My mother did a spinal surgery last week. After 10 months of laying in bed after a fall and a broken vertebra she’s is finally released from all the pain. I’m so glad that the surgery went well. I have been at home at my parent’s place the whole week.  Cooking, cleaning and taking care of my mom. I was acting as a good housewife for sure haha!
 But.. do housewifes also do some onlineshopping? Well, I did for sure! Since I couldn’t shop at the stores during sale, I did at home. Not a problem at all! Maybe it’s even better. It’s not a mess, you know what sizes are left over and you have a great overview.
So..thank you Zara.com for this pretty shopper! It’s waiting for me at the store!
PS: yes, I really really needed one because my old one is falling apart. Hihi 🙂

Outfit || 2nd winter coat

januari 11, 2013

 

 Ph// AnnisaGM

And here’s the outfit! Wearing a coat as long as this one, usually makes the total outfit look very chic.  But in my opinion, this coat gives chic a very rocky edge! It is two-toned and has fringes, which makes this the perfect long coat for me. The fringes also give the coat a vintage/old look. My daddy and my brother actually asked me why I was wearing such an ‘old’ coat! Oh well, how can I explain fashion? I can’t. It just called fashion.
Hope this one will not dissapoint me and will last for a while (since the other one didn’t ;))! 

P.S. I combined this outfit with the clutch I showed you before over here!
Have a lovely weekend!!!

P.S. Have you already joined my give-away? Find it HERE!

Love, Farah

What I’m wearing:
Coat: Monki (bought at the Masters of LXRY Fashionbash) €65
Leather pants: Topshop £15
Ankle boots: Supertrash €75
White clutch: Nelly €1

Preview || 2nd new coat

januari 10, 2013

 
Ph// Monki
Remember the hint I dropped here about a new coat? Here it is! As you all know, I visited the Fashionbash and I fell in love..with this long coat. The FashionBash was all about the clothes/bags/shoes of famous Dutch people. And it was about raising money for a good cause. Where fashion meets charity! Loved the concept of that and how could I not support that ;)? The coat I bought (which was btw totally new!) was probably of Gigi Ravelli!  I will show you an outfit with it tomorrow!
The Trinity coat: “A coat is a coat is a coat. No it’s not. This time, for instance, a coat is Trinity. And that makes ALL the difference.”

Outfit || Winter

januari 7, 2013

Ph// AnnisaGM
Hi guys!

How was the weekend? My weekend was full of awesomeness! With the fantastic 5 (my lovely friends!) we planned a weekend full of joy, partying, shopping and good food! The way to start the new year fresh and re-energized!

Speaking about the new year, it’s cold non? I have to admit that I find it difficult to keep myself warm and being fashionable at the same time. Do you have this problem as well? So it’s all about finding the perfect wintercoat! I found mine! The ones who follow me on Instagram must have seen the mirror-picture of me wearing the coat in Bershka’s fitting room.

But..after wearing this coat for a couple of weeks now..it has begun to give off lint..and not just a little bit, but it’s so bad that it looks like I have been wearing this coat for three years instead of three weeks.
Such a dissapointment..:( Even though I like the coat very much, I do not recommend you to buy it..even if it’s on sale now! (I saw it on sale for 60 euros now).

Conclusion: sometimes we just have to deal with bad bargains and get over it..At least now I have a good reason to buy a new coat..If I haven’t already..more about that soon! 😀

Love, Farah
