Report | Modefabriek 2012

This sunday and monday I went to the Modefabriek to see some new a/w 2012 collections, meet some inspiring people and get to know new brands. Click to see my report and what I was wearing, of course!

Looooved these bracelets from BeChristensen, I wish I had an arm full of these!
I love checking out Scandinavian brands like Day Birger et Mikkelsen. The minimalism and interesting shapes really appeal to me.
Crazy about this boot from Vic Matie. It’s the perfect, high heeled black ankle boot!
One of my favorite collections at Modefabriek was Gestuz. Loved the leathers, especially the coat pictured above! And I’m very excited, because I’m going to the Gestuz fashion show at Amsterdam Fashion Week this weekend! Can’t wait!
Bronx was very surprising, they had some pretty cool shoes even though some of them were pretty obvious copies..
I also went to a fashion show: Next & Cutting Edge. It showed the collections of some new and interesting international designers, like OMSk, Alexandra Kiesel, Don’t shoot the messengers, and more. Underneath you can see my favorite looks. I was actually sitting front row!
My favorite part of fashion shows, especially from ‘new’ designers, is when they walk the runway in the end. I love to see who’s behind the collection and which brain all that geniusness comes from. Having a major girl crush on the designer on the right, by the way.
And of course, what I was wearing!
My very much favorite leather jacket from Best Behavior via Muze
Top from, necklace from Fashionology, Aztec print jeans from River Island (get them here), studded loafers from Topshop, and bag from ASOS.
This is actually what I was wearing yesterday, I’ll show you tomorrow what I wore on day 1!


Shoe porn.

Excuse my language, but this shoe is utter shoe porn to me. Perfect shape, pointy nose, transparent heel. I need it in my life. I was going to wear more heels, right?
 From Zara.

Diary | 2012 so far.

January so far has been busy, but amazing. I really want to thank all my followers – old and new ones – for reading my blog every day and giving me so much love and support. You guys really make me happy and I love reading all the sweet comments and reactions! So here’s what I’ve been up to in 2012 so far!
1. Made some cross nails. I’ll definitely do that again, they rocked.
2. Tried one these great Balenciaga sneakers on sale but unfortunately they didn’t look as pretty on my feet. Bummer.
3. Two of my favorite items of the moment. My Fashionology cross bracelet and my River Island aztec jeans.
4. Dipped my nails into some Honk if you love OPI.
5. Haven’t been able to show you yet, but I also got this Isabel Marant boucle jacket on sale for a crazy price (in a good way). It’s perfect. Outfit soon.
6. There was also a lot of studying going on in the past few weeks. And a lot of vitamins, which I really need when I’m rushing around all the time.
7. Well, you already know, but I went to the hairdresser and this is the last picture of my long hair. It wasn’t easy to say goodbye to it..
8. But I looooove what the girls Haar en Kunst in Enschede did to my hair! I was literally there for over 3 hours and they gave me a complete hair make-over. The ends of my hair are dipdyed in black which you can’t see in the picture, but I’m so happy with the way it turned out!
9. My first giveaway went online. You can still go and win 1 of these to tops here! Anddd I can already tell you there will be quite a few more giveaways in 2012, so stay tuned!
10. My mum got me a rotating mascara. You can actually turn it on and the brush rotates. I loooove crazy things like this.
11. I got these amazing necklaces from Fashionology in the mail this weekend! I’m soooo happy with them, they are so my style and I’ll definitely be wearing them A LOT! Thanks so much Fashionology!
12. Me and the BF got two of these very cool wall decorations from Forever Home in Arnhem. They will look so good in our house!
So that’s all for now, I’m off to the Modefabriek to see some new collections and brands! I’ll be reporting very soon! Have a lovely sunday sweeties!


Outfit | Fringe Knit

Fringe knit   /   Isabel Marant
Jeans   /   Zara
Boots   /   Sacha
Watch   /   Vintage
Yes, this look is still showing my long locks, but I shot this outfit a few days ago. My head looks pretty different now! About this look? With a statement knit like this one, I didn’t feel like I needed to add much. Could have paired it with some more exciting colors and jewelry, but I was in the mood for blue jeans and pistol boots. My hands almost froze off while taking these pictures (it’s been so cold this week!), but don’t worry, my boyfriend warmed them up after.
Don’t forget to join my giveaway!


New In | Isabel Marant Fringe Knit

Oh, how I love sales. Scored this gorgeous IM fringe knit with 50% off last week. Happy me. I’ve had my eye on it for a while! Can be worn now, with a longsleeve underneath, or in spring/summer with some denim shorts. I’ll post the rest of the outfit tomorrow!Anddd I went to the hairdresser today and had 15 cm cut off my hair, scary! Curious to see the result? Have a look on my Facebook or Twitter!

And don’t forget to join my giveaway!


Yikes. Spikes.

Very much craving some spiked jewelry at the moment. Totally rocks. And great for self defense as well. Click for where to buy and some gold spikes as well!

Definitely ordering a few of these budgetfriendly weapons spikeys. Not sure yet which ones though!
