The sweater weather has arrived. You won't find many sweaters in my wardrobe (I prefer cardigans) but there is one type of sweater I love dearly: the turtleneck. If I got granted a (fashion) wish, I would wish for the oversize knit by Céline ...

how to be parisian

Read Article →

How to be parisian - wherever you are! It seems to be a universally acknowledged truth that every woman (at least in the fashion world) wants to be parisian. Some years after Ines de la Fressange' Beststeller Parisian Chic, the (new) rules of being a parisian are revealed! Audrey Diwan, Caroline de Maigret, Sophie Mas and Anne Berest explain the rules of french life.

oh so CHANEL

Paris Fashion Week is long over but just now I've found the time to take a closer look at Chanel's défilé. It left me bouche bée. Amazing! The scenario - the Boulevard Chanel inside the Grand Palais in Paris - gorgeous! And - that goes without saying - the collection!

When in doubt, vacation. So true. Last week my other half and I took a few days off. Our destination: Amsterdam. Amsterdam Centraal to be more precise. Honestly, what is more romantic than rail travel?

happily ever after with my ZARA bag

Read Article →

The Chanel 2.55, the Kelly Bag or the Birkin Bag from Hermès, the ps11 from Proenza Schouler - the list of It Bags is endless and almost every (fashion) seasons there are new ones to add. Above that 
is my personal It Bag. It's clear to see that it's no Chanel and no Hermès - far from it, it's a ZARA.

My fall cravings! For obvious reasons, am I right or am I right? These ACNE STUDIOS ankle boots .... gosh, I swear, it was love at first sight. ZARA currently got a look-alike for less than a quarter of the price of these beauties but that just ain't the same, right?

One of my (fashion) resolution was to add more colors to my wardrobe. When I'm flipping through a magazine or when I'm browsing through blogs, I adore outfits containing strong colors. Only that they seem not to be made for me. While I absolutely like - love - adore them on others, I don't feel comfortable wearing them myself.

the real B O Y F R I E N D jeans

Read Article →

B o y f r i e n d jeans - that's an old hat, you might think. Is there anything we don't know about the perfect boyfriend jeans yet? Let's sum up the facts: for the desired sexy vibe, the perfect boyfriend jeans should be loose but fitted across the hips, narrow and tapered in the leg, rolled at the hem to no more than an inch above the ankle. They look super-sexy with heels and just fabulous worn with a blazer. So what's new? 1) One of the things that I love about fashion is experimenting here and there ...

simple summer layering // fine rip

L a y e r i n g  is always an issue in the fashion world. Even in summer. Even in August. It's pouring cats and dogs and it's constantly getting colder. Yesterday I even stepped outside wearing my precious leather jacket. In August. Gosh! Though I can't really accept that summer is almost over, there is one good thing about the sinking temperatures: f i n e  r i p.
