New in / Low heels vs High heels

I woke up early this morning and the sun was shining, and I thought to myself, finally I can wear my new high heels. Well, NO! It’s already raining outside and I hate getting cold feet.

So I decided to photograph my new heels collection, actually high heels collection. So, I could at least admire them. I was never the person wearing a lot of heels and absolutely no high heels since last summer. I consider myself pretty tall and I used to feel awkward wearing high heels, so I kept by wearing sophisticated heels around 5-8cm. Well, this has changed.

Hereby I have to thank the inventors of the wedges and plateau pumps. I am finally the proud owner of a high heels collection (read 8-10cm heels). Here are a few shots, bare with me I am no photographer.

Just in case you might want to know where the shoes are from. Beige peeptoe plateau pumps are from van Haren for 19,95 euros, the beige wedges are from Primark for 13 euros, the black wedges are real leather from Gortz17 (which is a German brand) for only 50 euros, and last but not least, my new edition to the collection the black plateau pumps are from Dolcis also for 50 euros and I love these <3.

And girls, just buy ’em, wear ’em and do it with proud. If I can do it, so can you!

To compensate this off I had to get some new flats as well, I bought this peep toe ballerina’s from Seven Seconds at Zalando for only 9,95 euros (with discount).

And I absolutely love my new Vans, which I will be wearing today for sure!

Which shoes will you be wearing today?

Inspiration / Queen’s Day

So, monday it’s Queen’s Day, which is a national holiday in the Netherlands. We celebrate the birthday of the Queen, Queen Beatrix, which isn’t actually her birthday (she was born on 31st of January), but her mother’s birthday Queen Juliana. We been celebrating her birthday since the liberation of the 2nd World War. Liberation Day is also coming up on the 5th of May. So, a lot of national holidays, which is always a real good time.

Well to get back to Queen’s Day, everyone, but absolutly everyone goes crazier and dresses up in our national color: ORANGE! Some of you might remember the images from two years ago when we became 2nd in the World Cup playing socker. One big orange mass. I am so looking forward to the European Cup this year in June. Well, not to get sidetracked what it comes down too is, monday everyone should where orange, if it’s a fashion statement or not. I love it!!! If you forgot to buy something orange, here are some ideas which you could still get today…

Welcome!

Dear all,

Thank you for visiting my blog.
I am 26 years old, working as a Marketing and Communications Officer at Maastricht University, the Netherlands.

I decided to start this blog, because I believe fashion has a budget. I always shop with a ‘smaller’ budget and I find new items/brands with a budget almost everyday. I want to share this with you and make fashion available for everyone.

What you could expect from my blog in the future is: Inspiration, what’s new, new in, outfit and diary.

So don’t be scared, but look fabulous!

Love,

Ellen
