LITTLE THINGS

It's stuff like this that just does is for me. I love this. It's like when you walk into a thrift store, you don't expect to find anything, and suddenly you stumble across something beautiful as this. I live for that shit.

I met Pete from stylesightings.com last november in Miami. I saw him again this fashion week in Amsterdam, where he took pictures for his site. He is nice.

You know what I love? You know what I think is great style? When someone combines casual cool with uptown chique. When someone is confident enough to wear a tracksuit with fur. That's style.

Christopher Bailey doesn't create avant-garde high fashion collections for Burberry. He just makes desirable clothes for girls like me. Look at his latest F/W 2010 show: nothing earth shattering but nice and I want it all. I love his pilot jackets!

Yeah, well, so I don't know about Alexa Chung. I never cared much about her, her show on Mtv, her life or her style. But I bought British Vogue last week and read an article about/by her. Not that it was a particularly interesting article but it awoke an interest, in the girl, in me. And as it turns out, I quite like her style. Her quirkyness, her hair, her eyeliner. You know, the important stuff about a person.

BEAUTIFUL BLOGGER AWARD

           
BEAUTIFUL BLOGGER AWARD
23.02.2010
A great joy has come into my life: Suusje Q nominated me for the Beautiful Blogger Award. What's not to like?

But! There are rules... One who is nominated must commit to the following:

1. Thank the blogger who has nominated you for this award
2. Put the award on your blog
3. Give the link of the person's blog who has given you this award
4. Share 7 interesting facts about yourself
5. Nominate 7 other people for the Beautiful Blogger Award

Hereyby I would like to thank Suusje Q. for the nomination! I am honored. Please check her blog on www.thefabulouslifeofsuusjeq.blogspot.com. You'll enjoy it.

7 Facts about myself, and they have to be interesting! A God, here we go:
1. I am a freelance art/fashion journalist, working for a fashion magazine in Amsterdam. And ofcourse, a parttime blogger.
2. I live above 2 hookers, and I wave to them when I come home from work. They like me I think.
3. Black is my heaven and my hell. I love the colour, but try to get myself to wear real shades. Always fail.
4. I hate shops where the staff treats you like shit or they don't take your complaints seriously.
5. In my house, I have a statue of a garden gnome that gives you the finger, in gold. It makes me happy.
6. I love avocado's.
7. I never completely empty my plate.

To my shame I must admit that I rarely check out Dutch blogs. For that reason I will tell you the international blogs that I love and nominate (not the big famous ones).

Mary-Kate Olsen (who btw just presented her new The Row collection in New York) shows here that an all black outfit can be just jaw dropping.

It's no secret: I love Topshop and I hate the fact that we don't have one in Holland.
But, that said, I'd like to show you the Topshop Unique show for F/W 2010. I thought it was very Viktor & Rolf 2004 (cheaper version).

Men are delicious. Especially when they show a little skin or wear stylish cool outfits. So, for mine and your pleasure, 2 examples.

Sometimes, you're truly blown away by a fashion show. The collection just grabs you by the balls and does something to you. I've had this with a couple of Proenza shows. Their last one? Not so much. I don't hate it, I'm even quite fond of the ensembles I am showing here. The whole is just not earth shattering to me. Maybe next time!

PARIS

I was in Paris today. Beautiful, wonderful Paris. What a day! I visited an exposition in Louis Vuittons Espace Culturel in the morning and strolled through the city in the afternoon. Had lunch at Collette and read i-D magazine on a bench in Jardin des Tuileries. Great fun!

IT'S ON

IT'S ON

It's on again: New York fashion week has begun, and ofcourse Londen, Milan and Paris will follow suit. I'm so excited! Because of our internet troubles (grrr) I've missed the beginning so I have a lot of catching up to do.

I'd like to show you the Marc Jacobs show here. I like it. His first looks kind of remind me of an Eastern Europe kind of fairytale, very The Little Matchstick Girl new version (Hans Christian Andersen). But then the whole thing becomes more forward and in your face, and a little bit more grunge and boyish. I love the easy tousled straight hair and the cool oversized pieces. And how about those cute socks in tiny shoes? Adorable.

TRICKY BRAID

           
TRICKY BRAID
16.02.2010
I've never been a good braid maker. The normal braid, I can master. But the fishbone, like this one, I can't do. My sister is great at it, but unfortunately we don't share a house anymore.
I wish I could do a beautiful messy braid and feel like an Alexander Wang meets Miu Miu girl...

STRESS!

           
STRESS!
08.02.2010
How did Carrie do it? Writing a column, being fabulous and laying in bed in her underwear all day long? It's not something I am capable of... In january I started my new job at a fashion magazine in Amsterdam. Amazing but stressful at the same time.
And on top of that I just moved to the centre of the city. Also amazing but stressful! And the worst thing is: I don't have internet yet!!

I am so sorry I haven't been posting lately.
Be patient! As soon as I have internet access at my home, inspi-me will be exciting again!
