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?

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.

What’s new / favorite blogger #2

Because I love reading blogs too, I decided to introduce you to my favorite bloggers every month. It is time for part 2. As I said before, I start numbering with #1 and end whenever I am done, but this has nothing to do with how much I like them. I absolutly love them all.

This month I like to introduce you to another Dutch blogger, but a fashion blogger this time. Her name is Rosanna, her blog is called Billie-Rose. She writes in English, so perfect for everyone. Billie-Rose is al into latest trends, she posts a lot of outfit photo’s which give you heaps of inspiration. What I love is that she is girl which isn’t as thin as a straw. Just like me she has curves and their is nothing wrong with that. She is a little more girly than I am, but she always gives her outfits a rough twist.

Here are some inspirational pictures.

Please let me know what you think about her blog?

What’s new / Seven Seconds

I am addicted to shoes. I love every kind, flats, heels, plateau, wedges, sneakers. Shortly I found a German brand Seven Seconds, which is amazing. They offer shoes that are in fashion for a affordable price. They look expensive and like one of a kind, which makes it only more interesting…

I’ve been looking for strappy sandals, here are some of my favorites from Seven Seconds

Which one do you guys like best?

Diary / From Barcelona with love

This weekend my girlfriends and myself visited Barcelona. To do some serious shopping, relaxing and of course get some sun. As in Holland it is still raining and very cold, we where really happy to get away for the weekend.

Here is my weekend instragram/photo diary from Barcelona with love.

1. Our view from the apartment, the Sagrada Familia
2. Barceloneta beach on a 10 minute walk from the apartment
3. Just 1/4 of our shoe gallery
4. Serious shopping at Diagonal Mar shopping centre
5. My new items…

Beige perforated jacket – Stradivarius
Butterfly shirt – Bershka
Black flower blouse – Primark
Lace vest – Blanco
White sweater with blue lace – Bershka
White blouse – Blanco
Blue wedges – Pull&Bear

I did find the mintgreen shirt of H&M to short, so I bought mintgreen nail polish. I didn’t find any statement necklaces or kimono’s I liked. The one thing I did bought of my Barcelona wishlist (beige perforated jacket with no sleeves – sleeveless trend). More about this in my new post. Now I’ll have to do some online shopping again…

6. View on Barcelona from the cable cart

We visited Barcelona twice now, next year we would love to visit Madrid or Florence, where would you go for a girls weekend?
