What’s new / Budgettips

I always feel that my budget is fighting against what is trending. That little voice inside my head always says to me: ‘You really like does …., don’t you? Just buy them!’ Unfortunatly I am not rich (at all) and my bank account doesn’t like me spending all that money. I have found some ways to indulge myself in the new trend, but don’t spend to much. Here are some budgettips:

1. Go Outlet shopping. I am really lucky to live about 5 min away from a pretty big outletcenter.
2. Go sample shopping. Follow some blogs who will give you more information about where/when.
3. Go to second hand/vintage shops.
4. Go on Ebay and buy second hand.
5. Find out which online shops offer free delivery and affordable clothes. I find new online shops using Fashiolista. I will make a list of my favorite online shops soon.
6. Never buy something in a online shop without using a discount code. Just use google and you pretty much find some codes for every online shop there is.
7. Don’t buy the real thing but search for a real nice knock-off. I will make another post about this topic.
8. Make a list before you go (online) shopping. Then you only buy things you really need.
9. Clean out you closet, you will find things you forgotten about (feels like shopping).
10. Sell you stuff and make money instead of spending it.


I would just die having this closet.

Hope these tips will help you to become a better (online) shopper and you are able to save some money. Let me know if you want to add some tips? I can sure use them.

Well, FashnChips by Christine is a Dutch blogger and she posted a amazing contest online, which you can find here. I am not a UK reader (I am Dutch) but I love to make a Amsterdam look anyway. In my next blog I will introduce you to Christine and here blog.

Amsterdam look

1. Acne white shirt 2. Vintage Levi’s shorts 3. Retrosuperfuture sunnies, model Gals 4. Primark bag with studs 5. Primark millitary/leather jacket 6. Acne pistol boots

I believe the Amsterdam look is rock chic, edgy and not to clean&neat.

New in / Levi vintage

So, I Berlin we also took a detour to one of the most famous vintage stores ‘Die Garage’. This is the place where the Berliners bought there first vintage Adidas jacket. Nowadays it is more common under tourists but it is still a awesome places with great stuff.

I couldn’t refuse but to buy my first vintage Levi pants, which I will customize myself into shorts. Here are some before and after pictures.


I
f you are looking for a real vintage, you will be looking for this red stitch on the inside. I chose the 501, because that is the classic model.

Here is the after version, am bit wrinkling because I already had to wear them.

What do you think about vintage Levi’s shorts?

Inspiration / Kirsten Stewart

I decided to only do a diary once a month as from now, so no diary today but a fashion blogpost.

I really needed to do a article about Kirsten Stewart. Let me be honoust, I haven’t been a fan of her since the beginning. I always thought she was a bit smudy. No offense!

But since a little while I am starting to love her. What I exactly love about her? I’ll show you…

She still loves her sneakers, skinny jeans, t-shirt and casual jacket, but so do I.
I wouldn’t want to wear dresses everyday. I really like she is now combing and washing her hair, and making differents pony tials, buns or braids to spice up the look. Don’t forgetting she is wearing make-up with the casual look once in a while. So go Kirsten!

I really loved her casual look she worn to the MTV movie awards sneak peak week 2012.

She is wearing Balenciaga skinny jeans and leather jacket, Joe Jeans shirt, vintage Cartier necklace and FRYE sneakers.

At the MTV movie awards 2012 she chose the neon trend, which I think is perfect for the MTV event.

She is wearing a Guishem dress and Louboutin heels, which girl didn’t want to own a pair of those 🙂

Here a two more classic looks I like of her.
This is at the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards 2012

She is wearing a fabulous Stella McCartney dress and Barbara Bui heels. The blue shoes makes the whole outfit more playfull, great for the kids event. I love she didn’t chose a ultrashort dress and only shows of the legs to make it more appropriate. I adore the pony tail.

Here is Kirsten Stewart at the photocall for her new movie Snow white and the Huntsman in Madrid, Spain.

The warrior look is perfect for the event. She is wearing a BCBG Max Azria dress and Christian Louboutin heels. The braid finish it off.

I really think Kirsten is stepping up her game and she is a new inspiration to me.
Oh, and don’t forget she is with one of the sexiest man on earth, Robert Pattinson and they won the MTV movie award for best kiss for the fourth time.

Here is Robert on the Russian GQ cover, love the new haircut.
