PREGNANT VOGUETTES

           
PREGNANT VOGUETTES
30.12.2009
What happens when a fashion girl gets pregnant? I know this: she will not lay down and give up her personal style. Look at Julia von Boehm and Geraldine Saglio. These Paris Voguettes look amazing while carrying their unborns around. Very outgoing and sexy. Look at the pregnant nipple showing underneath the lace bra of Julia! Over the top much??

BILLY UND HELLS

           
BILLY UND HELLS
28.12.2009
I am very excited to tell you that I have a new piece of art! It's a picture by the German photographers Billy und Hells. This artist duo from Berlin originally started as fashion photographers. After that they've done some advertising work. For the past years their focus has been completely on their art photo's. They use this technique that combines black and white, and colour photography. This creates the very dark lines in their pieces and the grey-ish tones.

My picture is called Sarnai and it's from 2009. I think it's so sensual and soft. I am in love with it's colours, the green and the very soft pink; just gorgeous.

I WANT THIS

           
I WANT THIS
25.12.2009
I have to tell you a secret... I am shamelessly going to copy this necklace. I love it. Lately, I'm very much into very petit jewellery. Small tiny silver and gold rings and very thin bracelets. This necklace is the exact style I'm talking about. Petit and cute.

The necklace belongs to Dree Hemingway. I like her rock 'n roll yet feminine style.

RIP OFF

           
RIP OFF
22.12.2009
It's always great to find a nice piece of clothing that is a perfect rip off of something you can't afford. When I saw the Isabel Marant winter show I immediatley loved this little top. And guess what, a few days ago I found a very nice copy at COS. Ofcourse, I SHOULD say here: shame on you COS, for not designing something unique yourself. But frankly, I don't give a damn! I'm happy with my top!

THE JACKET

           
THE JACKET
22.12.2009
It's a search with no ending. I still haven't found the perfect leather jacket for me. It's always something: weird fit, ugly leather, too many zippers, buttons instead of zipper, ugly details... When will I succeed??

NEW HOUSE, NEW LOOK

           
NEW HOUSE, NEW LOOK
20.12.2009
I told you before: I love decorating my house. And since we are moving to a new appartment, I have my work cut out for me. Ofcourse we have a lot of furniture that we'll take with us, but moving is also a great opportunity to shake things up. To reinvent what you have and find some new treasures.

I like it when a home reflects the lives and loves of the owners. Pictures, art, little items and unique elements make this happen. I like a combination of old and new, trashy and chic. I like little special corners with beautiful little antique sidetables and mirrors without any purpose but to look good.

We are moving to a very cute but small home in the centre of Amsterdam. I'm afraid we are going to have to toss a lot of stuff out. And... I have to sort out my clothes. A lot of pieces will have to go. I am ready, bring it on!

PULSE

           
PULSE
18.12.2009
When I was in Miami, I also went to Pulse art fair. Less established artists show their pieces here, compared to for example Art Basel. What an experience! I think I liked Pulse even more than Art Basel. Great pieces and way more edgy. Here are some highlights.

THE SIMPLE STUFF

           
THE SIMPLE STUFF
15.12.2009
Lately, I only buy and wear really simple stuff. A nice pair of jeans, a cashmere sweater, a big skarf and some rings or a necklace. Just like this picture of Dree Hemingway really. No fuss, just easy going streetwear.
Sometimes, I do think I should wear more interesting or complicated pieces or whatever. Dresses or something. But, I don't like dresses. So whatever! Keep it simple!

Ps. To spice things up, I do always wear funky nailpolish!

ALEXANDER WANG PRE-FALL 2010
09.12.2009
The pre-fall shows are happening again. Check out what Alexander Wang did. Very black, very wearable, very tight pants and cool sunglasses.
The pre-fall and resort shows are driving me crazy. They are so useless and unnecessary. They give me so much extra work...

ART BASEL 2009

Back home. Back in the rain. Back in Holland.
I wish I could go back to Miami, where the sun shines and the people are funky.

Art Basel was amazing. Very large and a little hectic but amazing. I saw the most impressive and cool stuff. Here, for your enjoyment, some of the highlights.

SEEING RED
02.12.2009
I am a very natural girl. I don't wear a lot of make-up, I don't dye my hair and I like it that way. BUT sometimes, I see a picture like this one and I suddenly feel like I should do something. Buy some new lipstick or change my look. I mean, what a great haircolour! It looks amazing! I want it! Will I ever be able to look this stylish??
