Love: Spijkers en Spijkers London ss2012


Festivals are one of my favourite places to be during the weekends. I love to dance, hang with my friends and, moreover, to dress up! Unfortunately, the summer is almost over and the outdoor festivals are also done.
Two weeks ago I went to a nice small festival called Citymoves. The festival visits different cities during the summer and this was the last town of the season.

Even though the weather forecast told us it would be raining, I didn’t see many rain boots. I guess everybody was hoping for the best. The weather was pretty good. Just a few drops of rain, so we didn’t have to use our rain-emergency-backpack (with rain boots, umbrellas and ponchos). Because of the weather most people wore layers, that means blazers, scarfs, vests and panties.

Shoe Addiction: Selfridge

A woman never has too many shoes. To me, there’s no better art than a closet full of shoes. Not only is it nice to have something to choose from, but you also get inspired by all these colors, shapes and heels. The thing I love most about shoes is how they translate a regular outfit into a very stylish one. Yesterday I saw a girl with a blue sweater and a black jeans, not really impressive right? But she wore these amazing biker boots and I suddenly loved her outfit!

I got a love/hate relationship with heels, like every woman (except my friend, she hates flats, I think she will even wear heels when her ankle is broken). I love to buy them, they look so pretty in my shoe collection. But to break in a new pair of heels, it always takes me a whole packet of plasters. I also make the same mistake over and over again, you go out for a drink, just one drink, so you decide to wear high heels. One drink is two drinks, you know the story. Five hours later you end up bare feet, holding your heels in your hand. But still, we keep buying them, don’t we?

As always, I was searching for a nice pair of shoes and I found an awesome collection. Selfridges sells many fashionable brand like Alexander McQueen, Elie Tahari, Lanvin, Ann Demeulemeester and Nine West. The overall style of the whole collection is edgy, tough yet feminine. I selected my top 5, which isn’t an easy task with so many gorgeous shoes..

1. NINE WEST Knot platform sandals blue (Selfridges | £85.00)
2. CARVELA Stella shoe boots grey (Selfridges | £160.00)
3. Brian Atwood Maniac platform courts nude (Selfridges | £470.00)
4. A F VANDEVORST Chief ankle boots (Selfridges | £680.00)
5. STELLA MCCARTNEY Spacely boots beige (Selfridges | £340.00)

I'm in love with my Kelims

I finally found my perfect Kelim Boots! I fitted like 100 different sizes but they all were too big, too small or just not the right print. I bought them at Gemsaboetiek. A small online shop of a woman who also sells bags and other cute things. 
Hmmm i'm in love.

Bare bums, balls and balloons

A few weeks ago I found this awesome campaign of Marc Jacobs. I completely forget to share it with you guys, but better now than never right.
The menswear add is a bit in the same style as the Helena Bonham-Carter add. The campaign is shot by Juergen Teller, a really cool photographer. Once I went to a exhibition of him, he makes the strangest pictures. I can't tell if I really adore his photographs, but they do inspire me in a way. 
Anyway, I think it's a cool campaign.

Balenciaga Resort 2012 - Surrealistic movie

I just found this amazing movie of Balenciaga resort 2012. Nowadays many fashionbrands use videos to promote their collection. One of my favourite directors (and photographer) made this movie; Stevel Meisel.

Festival outfit

Hi guys! First, I'm so busy with my internship I have barely time for updating my blog. I try to update as many times as possible, I guess I have to work less haha.

Today I'm going to a festival in my town, and possible one of the last festivals this summer. I really adore my outfit, so I wanted to share it with you. 
Last week I bought this top at H&M, I adore lace so I had to buy it. I'm wearing it with a boyfriend shorts and a panty. I also got the festival-musthave, a feather headband. Hmm me like.
I try to make some pictures today which I will share with you!

Alice in fashionland

I could watch this video over and over again. 
I completely forget about time and just dream for four minutes.

During a visit to New York City, a young lady finds a mysterious suitcase in her hotel room. What she finds inside transports her into a world of daydreams and dress-up.
Marie Claire shot a video instead of a regular fashion editorial. The video is almost a year old, but to me it's timeless!


Tokyo Rising is the big inspiration this Fall/Winter 2011-2012 for Palladium. The shoe brand is all about urban exploration. Tokyo is one of the most living and inspirational cities, especially after the tragedy of 3/11. People always felt safe and secure in Japan, until the big disaster. Not only Japan has changed, but the whole society.
Together with N.E.R.D. frontman Pharrell Williams, Palladium has visited Japan. Tokyo is like Pharrell’s second home. Pharrell is inspired by the Japanse people, their culture and their way of life. He takes us to the most special places like Tokyo Under Ground and he meets all kinds of young creatives. The city’s creative class has the feeling that they have to create something to show society how they feel about these times. In the documentary Tokyo Rising Palladium and Pharrell Williams discovers the creative heart of the city and her possible future. You can watch the documentary here.

“I can tell you these people are so strong. That remains part of what’s so inspiring and part of the magnetism that brings people to Japan” Pharrell Williams

While exploring Tokyo's under ground, Pharrell is wearing Palladium's Baggy Leather Gusset boots from the new Waterproof collection. The shoes have Waterproof Oily Nubuck uppers, waterproof insoles, waterproof yarn for the stitching and taped seams. There are five different models from €99,95 to €109,95.
The winter boots which Pharrell is wearing are Palladium's Baggy Leather S boots from the WOOL lined collection. The collection is inspired by authenic pilot Bomber jackets. The PILOT collection consists of seven models with varied prices between €99,95 and €139,95.

Buy your Palladium boots at SWYF!
Get your boots on and go exploring!
