Pleated Coral

augustus 22, 2012

A great combination of edginess and femininity, in my opinion a good description of the color coral .
NO wardrobe would be complete without a little bit pink in it, don’t you think? I combined this pleated skirt (which I found on a secondhand market for just 2 euro’s!) with a flower print body of Zara. I chose for some white high-heeled sandals to get this full summer look! To mention the bag, I just love that bag. Unfortunately, it’s not really handy since it doesnt have pockets in it. The start of a messy cluttered bag. I guess that it forces me  to be more organized instead of bringing a whole survival package with me. It helps me to find what I need in the blink of an eye (especially when you’re looking for your keys, you might recognize this problem;)
I visited a friend of mine in my parents’ hometown Purmerend. We chatted and sat the whole afternoon in front of the house, spending some quality time with each other! We laughed a lot, you can tell that from the pictures she made of me!

Loafing around

augustus 15, 2012

Are you ready to experience being comfortable and chic at the same time? Meet my latest new love, loafers. Lately, loafers have moved from the standard penny variation into a shoe in many different materials and prints.  When I saw these loafers shining, I knew I would wear them till they were falling apart. The reason: no matter how much I love wearing heels, I often find myself fantasizing about getting home, kicking those heels off and slipping into my comfy slippers.  Of course, parading in high heels makes you feel sexy and feminine. The new loafer trend makes me feel like walking in slippers, while still getting the confident feeling I get from heels. Combined with this beautiful high-waisted Zara skirt and a sheer blouse I’m ready to go! Oh, I almost forgot to mention the beautiful two-toned earrings from Aldo!

Top: Koton  € 20
Skirt: Zara € 10
Loafers: H&M  €20 (now in stores)
Bag: Zara € 50 (now in stores)
Earrings: Aldo $ 12


Hamsa hand

The Hamsa is a palm-shaped amulet, commonly used in jewellery and wall decoration. Nowadays,it’s also popular as a print on clothes. The open right hand is recognised and used as a sight of protection.
The Hamsa is believed to provide shelter against the evil eye. A couple of weeks ago, I went for some shopping in Antwerp. It’s almost a tradition since I always go to Antwerp during sales season! The stores are much bigger but more importantly, there are stores you cannot find in the Netherlands. One  of them is Urban Outfitters, where I found this top.  I combined the top with a split maxi skirt, a yellow bag and some ankle boots from Aldo.

Speaking about the Hamsa again, while I got these photos taken, I almost fell into the water! I guess the hand got me lucky and protected me from actually fall into the IJ.

Top: Urban Outfitters € 12
Skirt: Mango € 15
Ankle boots: Aldo $ 60
Bag: Primark € 7

Maxi sheer

A beautiful skirt by Jane Norman. Jane Norman is a English brand with many stores in the UK. In the Netherlands you can find a small collection of Jane Norman at the V&D. I combined this sheer maxi skirt with a flower print top which has beautiful detailing in the front. 

Top: La Chica €5
Skirt: Jane Norman € 14

Say Hello to Yellow

augustus 8, 2012

This outfit is screaming yellow.  Since it’s a loud colour, it catches the eye instantly! Although the colour yellow is in this season, it is a shade that needs to be worn carefully, when it’s used as a handbag/accessory or as a piece of clothing. A couple of months ago I visited New York. I discovered a huge store called DSW, Designer Shoe House. In this store you can find designer shoes for ware house prices. I immediately fell in love with these sunny shoes of BCBG.

Top: Mango € 15
Skirt: Forever 21 $13
Heels: BCBG Paris $60
Bag: Primark €7
Necklace and bracelet: H&M €10, €5


Vintage all over except for…

augustus 7, 2012

Sometimes, I have the urge to dress up to a level of classiness that sometimes even makes me think that I was born in the wrong era. I found these beautiful items on a vintage market.
I combined them together to get the total look of a girl born many years ago in an era where people were riding a deux cheveaux and the woman never worn pants.

Dress: vintage € 2
Belt: vintage €2
Heels: H&M €30 ( except for the shoes 😉
