I recently went to the photography museum of The Hague. I saw the expo of Sally Mann and was totally impressed. I especially liked her Immediate Family series. So intense and intimate. This is my favourite shot. Gorgeous, her daughter inspired on Olympia by Manet from 1863.

Ideal is a disaster! You can buy anything, all the time! So, just because I can, I just bought a silver star ring on vinka.nl. Yes I like it a lot, but it feels so spoiled, just bying it like that online. You don't even have to get out of the house!!

THESE SHOES ARE KILLING ME
17.11.2009
These Alexander Wang shoes are slowly killing me.
I love them, I want them, I need them but... chances are I'll never be able to make them mine. Very exclusive, nowhere to find in Holland and very very expensive.
Such a shame.

RETRO FUN

           
RETRO FUN
16.11.2009
I love shopping for fashion stuff BUT... I also looove finding new treasures for my house. I particularly like fifties, sixties and seventies furniture. I have a great tv table that's sooo The Jetsons and a fantastic Art Deco mirror (a period I also adore). I also picked up the habit to always eat with real silverwear, which I gathered in antique shops. It makes me feel fancy.

Last week, I found a really nice lamp in a cute shop in Utrecht. You see it in the picture with one of my favourite pieces: an adorable round bamboe chair! The best thing ever!

I'm a huge fan of the work of Inez van Lamsweerde & Vinoodh Matadin. They take such great pictures. They show us emotion and intensity rather than just fashion and clothes.

They shot Daria Werbowy for Vogue Nippons december issue. Gorgeous!

Repetto, the go to brand for ballet flats, now introduced the Jackson Jazz. What? Yes, it's a patent leather loafer reminiscent of the ones Michael Jackson used to wear. And Kate Moss, ever the trendsetter, is wearing them all over town. I kind of like them, in a weird way.

GREY NAILS

I was looking for the dark grey YSL nailpolish. But as it turns out, it is sold out everywhere! And because it's a limited edition, it's not coming back in stores again. Luckily the shop girl showed me a similar colour from a really cheap brand. It's called Mavala New York and the number is 217. Great shade of grey and it doesn't chip at all! And the best thing: it was 5 bucks!

THESE BOOTS ARE MADE FOR ME

I think I' ve found the right boots for me. Margiela boots, heel's not too high, can be worn with anything... great! Now I just need to figure out where I can find them... I'm not even sure they're from this season! There is no Margiela store in Holland yet, so that's not helping. A trip to Antwerp, Bruxelles or Paris must be made I'm afraid.
Here you see Emmanuelle Alt in them. She's so cool.

KILLER HEELS

           
KILLER HEELS
07.11.2009
I love high heels. They make you look taller, sexier, more elegant and more feminine. I don't care if I wear chunky tough heels, boots with heels or girly pumps, they just give me that YES feeling. Why is it then, that I don't wear heels every day? Not even every other day. I know why: it's because I'm from Holland and Dutch women are too, how shall I call it, 'down to earth' for heels.

Let's have a look at my day today. It was pooring rain when I got up in the morning. I had to walk to the subway. From the subway I walked to my train. And from my train I walked to work for 15 minutes. I can't do that in heels! Call me a nag, but my feet just would't be able to handle it! So, what I could do is bring heels to work. Wear them all day and go back home in my sneakers again. Yes I could do this, but frankly, I'm too lazy for it.

So now I am looking for the perfect winter boots with a nice heel. A heel low enough to walk and work in, and high enough to look cool and collected. I was thinking about the black Carin Wester Klea boots but those are still not 'walkable' enough. A difficult task lies before me. I'll keep you posted.

THE INTERSECTION

           


07.11.2009
I always watch Style.com's short streetstyle video's. They're called The Intersection and every time, they focus on the people passing by on another streetcorner in another city. I especially like the ones shot in Paris, just because Paris women look best!

This is such a cool bracelet. It's by Pamela Love (an American designer) and I don' t think it's available in Holland. I looked it up on the internet, seriously interested in buying, and guess what... it's like 1200 dollars or something! And it's silver! In Holland we say: I'm good, but not crazy.
