Inspiration / NYFW Rebecca Minkoff

New York Fashion Week has left a amazing feel of inspiration. We enjoyed watching some great fashion shows, full of new ideas, looks and ready for Spring and Summer. One fashion show in particular stole my heart and I am wishing it was spring already. Rebecca Minkoff! Rebecca moved to NYC when she was only 18 to pursue her dream of becoming a fashion designer and today she is more than just that. For me she is two things above all ‘Extremely pretty and incredible smart’. I adore her style and I love to share with you 3 of my favorites looks from her SS 2013 collection.


My favorite look, no doubt. I am not sure if it is a onepiece or a top with pants. Eitherway I would wear it. The print is amazing (so sophisticated) and I love the faded parts. It is admire worthy how she combined the minimalistic style but kept it very feminine.


The only jeans in the collection. I am a jeans kinda girl and since our summers don’t get very hot I would love to wear this look. This is a everyday look, but so fun. I like the shade of the jeans and the ripped parts, but what I love the most are those sandals, to die for <3.


Very minimalistic comparing to the rest of the collection, but to pieces every girl should have in their closet. A beautiful white blouse and a easy, flowy short you can combine with anything.

New in / Primark overload

Last week I went to Essen in Germany again, where you find one of the biggest Primark stores there are. 6 floors of clothes, jewelry, shoes, beauty and products for your home. You can imagine it took me some time to go through all the racks and only have 8 products for the fitting room. Well after 1,5 hour I managed. I was ready to fit and try, that was when the fire alarm went off…..

Really, I am not joking they had to evacuate the whole building, six floors of shopaholics who had to leave there precision baskets behind close doors. Luckily, everything was over within 30 minutes and I found my basket again. I think it was a exercise, but they will never tell…

Here are my fashion finds, I managed to stay under 70 euros.

I would like to know if you shop at Primark and what you think about the store and the concept?

Excuse me for the bad photography, but I am still working on this my skills and I should have made the pictures in broad daylight, except I am at work then.

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…
