Eccentric

Goooodmorning lovely's! It's a Saturday and I have a brand new outfit for you guys, containing two items that are a bit more eccentric than usual: the bag and the pants!

About the look
I've never worn such an item on the blog before: palazzo pants! When ordering this palazzo pants (it comes from the same order as this golden skirt and a silver croptop that I yet need to show you, so I guess we can call that a boundery-crossing-moment) I did not even first thought about how to style it, I just figured it would turn out okay anyway. And it did! At least, in my opinion..
And then: the bag! Not an item you see that often, a triangular bag, but I love my new leather take-it-everywhere-clutch from Candybag! Their webshop is under construction, but you can check out the Facebookpage and still shop 'till ya drop because they ship worldwide! What do you think about these two uncommon shades of blue and green, together

Furthermore
Last week I went into town with Laura from MIXT fashion & lifestyle and we shot these pictures. I think they turned out great, thanks to her photography-talent and the fun strolls around Utrecht in order to find perfect shooting-spots. She did a little interview with me by the way, you can read it on her blog

Trend: plastic fantastic

Let's discuss: the see-through/transparent trend.
It started with see-through umbrellas, then the wearable items were introduced: shoes, bags, raincoats and even tops and skirts.
I, personally, like things that are a bit different, as long as it's wearable and when it adds something extra to the whole look.
But transparent boots? You'd constantly need your pedicure to be perfect. Actually, you need to have perfect feet in general. As in, perfect..

An angel would say:
Why not? It's just another fun trend and if you want to stand out this is the way to do it.

The devil would say:
No-go for this trend. It's just pieces of plastic and everyone can see what's underneath that piece of plastic. You'll be as transparant as what you're wearing and that will entice a lot of pickpockets.

So, what will it be? The devil or the angel?

All things big

This is a look I'm pretty sure not many men will like. A lot of you girls neither, probably.
The blazer, the top and the pants are all oversized. Then, instead of adding heels, I added my New Balance sneakers. Not so femine at all. But we all have those days right? Days on which we just want to wear lounge-wear. Days on which we don't want to wear high heels & tight jeans. So this was just kind of a throw on, in a oversized way. I do like the dark Autumn-like colors though, what about you?

My camera - which is an oldie - is slowly giving up on me, you might notice that when looking at these pics. I'm getting a new one, due to supreme saving-up behaviour, and I'm yet figuring out which one to buy. Any tips & tricks?

Candybag

A small post about this new leather triangular bag. It's from Candybag, a brand from Greece. that makes gorgeous leather goods and bags.
This season, they have a great selection of small leather bags & handbags. This triangular one in a bright electric blue color was a match made in heaven. The Candybag webshop is yet under contruction, but go and check out their Facebook-page and see if you can find your match!
Later on this week I will show it to you in an outfit, so stay tuned for that!

Enjoy your Sunday!

Double fur

My oh my, the cold days are finally here. The heater must be turned on and I'm constantely in the need of hot jugs & some jasmin flavoured green tea. Don't get me wrong, I like the cold days and all the fuzzyness they bring, but without the jasmin tea or this new furry coat from The Sting, I simply won't survive.

Faux furs aren't going anywhere this fall, their in for the stay. And as you might have already noticed, I'm a big fan of faux furs. Huge fan. With other words: fur is always a good idea.
I styled today's coat with my striped midi dress, shiny black boots and some more... fur.
As I said before, this is my first plain black furry coat, and that brings a lot of oppertunities. It's an easy piece to style and because the coat is already black, don't be afraid to just add a bright color.

Cheers to the freakin' weekend!

New stuff

Sometimes, I find myself getting dressed to go into town because I need to buy a new notebook - for example - only to come home with several shoppingbags, filled with new stuff.. Yes, a girl needs to shop every now and then. Here's what I got!

The coat
I told you in this post, I was going to get myself more fur for the upcoming wintermonths. And I did. A black faux fur is now added to the family. Strange thing, I did not yet own a plain black one, only blue & ombre grey. I found this one at The Sting, they have a very nice collection of wintercoats!
I got it a few sizes too big so that the fit would be a bit oversized. Plus, big winterknits should fit underneath!

The boots
I can store these under the category 'best buy'. I found these burgundy booties at Zara, for only 20 euros! Burgundy is thé color for the cold months, so my thoughts were: mine, mine, mine!
I like that they have a black detail at the zipper, and also the heel isn't that high so I can walk in these for hours!

Let me know what your thoughts are about these new items!

Soft colors

Fall is here. The cold and grey days have landed and as the shivery that I am I immediately ordered a big cozy knit some weeks ago. Without noticing that it was still officially summer when ordering a actual winter knit. 
I found this one at Oasap. They have a lottttt to choose from, so much that it made internet-shopping a bit difficult. I choose the babyblue color because blue is without doubt my favorite color, and with this particular 'popcorn' knit it seemed like the perfect color for it. 

I liked mixing soft colors in this outfit, because sometimes you just can't add a 'hard' color all the sudden. In this case, it needed to stay soft, that's why all the grey and babypink is present!
Pastels aren't over yet, and I'm glad about that!   


Due to rain and a battery failure, these are the pics you have to make do with.
Hope you still like them though! Happy Tuesday!

Emerald & fur

Two favorites of mine are back this Fall: emerald green & faux furs!
And I can't be more excited, because there was a lot of fun stuff on the runway to be seen when designers showed their Fall/Winter collection last January.

Emerald green
My absolute favorite color, together with that bright electric blue: emerald green. That color just screams darkness, magic and mysterious-ness. Not that those words define me, but, well, you get my point! On my emerald-green-wishlist: this green leather pants from Zara and this oversized knit from & Other Stories. Who will I see at the opening in Amsterdam this Friday?

Faux fur
Fur coats, fur gilets, fur skirts, even furry shoes. I can't have enough fur and I will probably add another faux fur to my collection this Fall. It just makes every outfit a bit more edgy, and I happen to like edgy. When you decide it's just a denim-plus-grey-sweater-kinda-day, a bright blue faux fur coat will do the trick, no doubt about that!
On my faux-fur-wishlist: this white/grey furry scarf from Zara and this AWESOME pink coat from Whistles. Not together though.. O and with that last one I can also cross the pastel trend of my list!

What do you think about these trends?
