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.

Inspiration / Original vs. Budget #1

I promised you to make a original vs. budget post. Why buy the real thing when there are lovely fakes. Not everyone can spend a $1000/800 euro on a bag or a pair of shoes. Today I am doing a shoes only version. I think I will give this post some other tries with other items.

Here are my shoebudgettips for the moment:
 
Isabel Marant wedge sneakers 450 euro’s vs. Zara wedge sneakers 60 euro’s.
 
Sam Edelman metallic heels 150 euro vs. Zara reflector heels for 40 euro’s.
Remember Sam Edelman came out with a knock-off from the Balenciaga shoe boot in 2009. Now others try to knock-off Sam Edelman and more winterproof anyway.

Chloe boots for 905 euro vs. Zara boots for 100 euro’s.

Do you now understand why I love the Zara so much?

Inspiration / Berlin

This is my 50’s post! I have over 50 followers! Yay, 4 months in the running and standing strong ;)…

Well, back to bloggin’
Only 3 more days untill we leave to visit Berlin. Although it is only 624km to Berlin I have never been there, but wanting for a whole lot of years. Not only is Berlin trending and full of interesting/inspirational people. This city has a history like no other city in the world.

As most of you know Berlin was the epicentrum during World War II and afterwards divided in West and East Berlin untill 1989. That is 50 years of differences, poor and rich, suppression and pure history.

Ofcourse, being Dutch I have been brougthup with stories about World War II and everything that changed after. Also first hand by my grandparents, who all live through this awfull time, but in school this was one of the main subjects during history lessons.

Logically, I need to be visiting the Holocaust Museum, checkpoint Charlie, what is left of the Berlin wall and so on…but today I want to share with you some trendy spots in Berlin which are on my list to visit. I put together a day programme, all credits go to Petite Passport.
