After fancy resorts & beachclubs on the first day in Croatia. It was time to get our adventurous vibes on for Day #2! Hunkemöller gave us their newest festival items and we conquered Dubrovnik, wanna see?
From the catwalks to the streets. Models are always on the run so we have to be quick in choosing the right clothing. We never know when street photographers are going to capture you, so we always have to look good. Of course because of our work, we pick up several style tips along the way. In this post I will tell you how to create a model off duty look.
The looks that I would wear straight from the catwalk of Lisbon Fashion Week (or stuff that is just really cool)March 22, 2017
Fashion weeks are always though in some way… so many awesome looks that you want to wear, but they won’t come out until next season yet! A week ago I was in Lisbon for their fashion week and I definitely got shopping fever there. Here are some of the looks I would pluck straight from the catwalk – or looks that are simply awesome. Can you guess which ones I would wear?
It was sooo good to be back in Amsterdam again for fashion week: seeing all the amazing people I usually don’t see because I live far away AND getting lots of new fashion inspiration. What’s not to love? This time the fashion week was shorter than usual, but I still had lots of fun, let’s take a look at my outfits. Shall we?
The fashion season is starting again! Last time, I had an amazing week full with fun experiences, and I cannot wait for the upcoming shows. Preparing yourself for a fashion week is absolutely necessary, a thing which I learned from going to fashion weeks for quite some seasons already. I decided to team up with 7 amazing bloggers to write down The Ultimate Prep Guidelines for Fashion Week… Get Ready!
Save the date: the 29th of November I will be participating in a vintage fashion show in collaboration with Marktplaats in Amsterdam. More than 40 fashion -and lifestylebloggers will be showing their ‘creative chic’ outfit, which will be up for sale afterwards! In case you would like to check out all of our styles – and do some vintage shopping while you’re at it – make sure to come over.
Why is this fun? Because women should spend more time recycling their closet: it doesn’t only keep it more organized, with the money you earn from small sales you can buy new (and better) outfits. Go sustainable fashion!
I am super excited that I was invited to join this event, and I can take 3 of you guys! Marktplaats lets me give away 3 VIP Tickets + a Meet and Greet, so make sure to leave a comment on my blog or my Instagram to get a chance of winning! Let me know why you want to come and the 22nd of November I will announce the winners :)
Location: Vondelkerk Amsterdam, Vondelstraat 120A
Time: 29th of November 17.30
See you there!
Lots of Love,
How to look chic on a low budget? I think all of us wonder the same every now and then. Last week I went to an event of Hunkemöller with the dresscode CHIC, and of course I had “nothing to wear” (who is feeling me lol). I didn’t want to spend too much money and I just had a few days to find THE look… so internet shopping wasn’t an option. Time for a shopping spree I would say! This is what I found:
Bye Bye Holidays, Hello Exams! Since most of my friends are spending their days in the books at the moment, I figured it would be fun to do an #OOTD inspired by the University Look. How to walk to classes while looking effortlessly chic? I got the answer! And there is more: for this #OOTD I convinced Alex to join me for menswear inspiration and I think he did an amazing job. Let’s check it out!
When you are too busy studying, you most definitely not want to get too complicated with your outfit. Therefore, the first (and very obvious) ground rule for effortlessly chic is: keep it simple! As you can see I went for a basic Zara shirt in combination with a checkered A-line skirt: warm and comfy, but still cute.
The second thing which is important for a chic school outfit are the colors. Black and white is always a safe option, but for today’s outfit I felt inspired by warmer colors: brown and burgundy red. These colors are trending as we speak and I happen to love them, happy me! Is it just me or do they also give a little 70’s touch to my outfit? Anyways, the neutrals are always good for the chic look, so all you have to do is ask yourself: does the color scream? If the answer is yes, don’t wear it as one of your basics. As a fun touch for an accessory? Go for it!
And last but not least: you NEED a bag to drag all your books around, so you might as well go for a cool one! This oldskool leather bag from Ruitertassen really gives my outfit that final touch and is super practical as well. The best part is the fact that these oldskool bags are made with great quality and they will only start looking better with the years, unlike most other bags I ever took to class. Besides, I love the vintage style of the bag because… vintage! Do I need to say more?
How amazing is it that at the moment it’s trending again for men to suit up and look classy? I’m a fan! Alex is wearing a shirt under his jumper with his tie tucked in (yes, I was inspired by Nate from Gossip Girl) combined with his beige skinny fit jeans. This fit makes the look a bit more casual, otherwise it would go into the direction of ‘business man’ instead of ‘college student’ and that’s not the look we were going for!
For Alex I also decided to go for neutrals with a beige jeans and a grey/blue-ish sweater. However, the combination of different structures and layers makes the look more interesting, just as the small burgundy red detail on his socks! Finally, Alex’ outfit also got its final touch with the oldskool leather bag from Ruitertassen, who do you think wore it better? ;)
New Year’s Eve… THE night in the year when everyone can shamelessly go full on Glam with their outfit, enjoy it!
This year I decided to go for a sophisticated sexy look with this long black dress designed by Claudia Falcieri Oliver, an upcoming designer from London, isn’t it amazing?! I love how it emphasizes the right parts of my body and makes me look taller, it’s very flattering indeed! Because the dress already gets enough attention on its own, I kept the accessories simple with a small silver bracelet & ring from Lito & Lola and another ring from Amor.
Tonight I will be celebrating NYE at the W Hotel here in Barcelona (Yes that’s right, the same hotel were I also had this amazing #Retox brunch!) Their club Eclipse is located at the 26th floor and has breathtaking views over the ocean, I can’t wait! However, an amazing party can only happen with amazing friends: I am so excited that Christel and her boyfriend are joining me and Alex to celebrate together!
Btw, did you guys know that in Spain they don’t celebrate NYE like they do in the Netherlands? I’ve always been used to running outside in the cold to see the fireworks when the clock strikes Twelve, but in Spain there are no fireworks at all! However, they have a very fun tradition of their own: the famous ’12 Uvas’. With every strike of the clock you have to eat one grape, if you are able to chew all of them down before the clock strikes Twelve, you will have a prosperous year ahead of you! I better get started practicing my ‘Grape Eating Skills’ lol, I’ll let you know how it went!
Have a very good night my dears, and see you next year! ;)
Lots of love,
Finally, the Christmas days are starting tomorrow! I’m sure all of us had some small dramas about what to wear, and I am very curious which outfit you went for in the end! Last week you were already able to see a sneak peek of my Christmas Eve outfit and now I am sharing all the details, I hope you like it :)
What I find tricky about Christmas outfit’s is mainly the color combination because there are so many possibilities. Christmas Tree Red & Green… Snowy White, Blue & Silver… Cozy Fireplace Red & Gold… I tend to love all of the combinations and start mixing them up, which doesn’t always result in the best outfits. This Christmas I’m going for a classic safe Black & Gold: a classy look with a touch of glam for the special occasion but still perfectly suitable for a cozy family gathering.
So… what am I actually wearing? You might recognize the black ‘pants’ which is in fact my beloved jumpsuit from Loretta Piovano. I changed its look by wearing this beautiful shirt from Zara over it. I love the material; it’s very thin and shiny, which gives an amazing light effect while moving. By combining this straight-on look with my black heeled booties I was aiming for a Balmain-inspired look, powerful yet feminine, do you think I pulled it off? Last but not least… accessories! I’m wearing two bracelets by Quoins which are gold with black leather details and a beautiful basic yet strong golden necklace which emphasizes the neckline of my shirt and makes the golden details pop. BOOM, Christmas I’m ready for you!
I will be out for the coming three days to be with my family and friends, so for now I am wishing you the happiest of holidays! You won’t have to miss me for long though, I will see you guys again soon with ANOTHER Giveaway for NYE! Yes, you guessed it right, I just really love the holidays!
Lots of love and happiness,
