Accessoire party

Accessoires, what girl doesn’t love them? Bags, earrings, sunglasses, watches, (statement) necklaces and rings. They all give every outfit a finishing touch and my guess is that every girl propably wears at least one accessoire. There are so many great combinations possible with accessoires, I’ll show you some of my favorites!

These earrings really make a statement and show some great attitude, really love them! I found similair ones on Lionette.

Beanies, one of my all time favorites! My saviour in times of cold weather and next to that, they look fashionable too! I love the white/beige one, I have a similair one that I bought at Monki, but I couldn’t find it, so I’ve hunted one down at Asos.com.

Wearing rings is always a good idea, they give your look that something extra! Especially the combination of regular rings, with midi and pinky ones, as you can see on the picture. The rings on the second picture are from Topshop. (Too bad there is no Topshop in the Netherlands)

5875001050_1_1_1Round glasses, it’s beginning to become a real hype! I’ve already seen a lot of bloggers wearing them and I begin to love them more and more, so maybe it’s time to get one pair of my one. These glasses with a metal spectacle frame are from Zara.

I’m really happy that leopard is making a comeback! I love leopard, but it has to be subtle in a way that it’s not dominating your outfit. Too much leopard can look a little ‘trashy’ if you know what I mean. I love this leopard clutch in combination with the soft colours, it’s really elegant! I found this one on Asos from Jas M.B.

Last but not least, transparent clutches, you have to love them! I wouldn’t use this clutch as a every day asseccoire, but I think it’s really cool for a special occasion, like a party or a dinner. Also, I always have a lot of stuff with me, so I think it wouldn’t fit in such a small bag, but I like the idea! The clutch on the second picture is from Zara.

These accessoires are all so awesome one by one and I would totally rock them. However, there are some every day accessoires that I can’t miss, like a tote bag for all my stuff, my Michael Kors watch and golden plated heart shaped necklace I got from my grandmother.

What are yours? 🙂

Valentine fine

Image

Valentine’s day, it’s origin dates back to 270 AD, where a young roman priest called Valentinus –  also known as Saint Valentine –  broke the law of Claudius the emperor and followed the law of love. In his time, it was illicit to marry soldiers, because Claudius didn’t want the soldiers to be distracted by their home front. But Valentine broke his law and married soldiers in secret. Unfortunately, the secret didn’t last long. Claudius gave the order to torture Valentine and eventually Valentine was decapitated on the 14th of February.

Nowadays, people give their loved ones special attention on this day. Although I love to spend this day with my loved ones, there are 364 other days were you can show your loved ones that you love them, it’s more spontaneous and I think the suprise element makes it more fun. Still, I love the gesture and it’s a great occasion to give someone some extra attention. That’s why I’ve hunted some Valentine items down!

ImageThis classy dress from Zara is perfect for a Valentine’s date. With some high heels, a clutch and statement jewelry you’ll be totally ready to rock the night!

Valentine’s day is not only for love couples, but also a great moment to show your love to your friends, family and even to your pets. Everybody drinks tea of coffee, so I think your friends and family will be very happy with a nice and/or funny mug! Every time they enjoy their daily cup of tea or coffee they will think of you. Here’s some mugspiration (personal customized mugs are even more awesome):

And I found the sweetest thing to show some Valentine love to your pet. This hand knitted red hearted scarf from Etsy is so cute, cheerful and will keep your cat or dog warm these cold winter days.

Image

Whether you’re going to celebrate it or not, it’s never a bad time to make cupcakes. These red velvet cupcakes are delicious and look ‘Valentinish’. A great excuse to pamper yourself or your loved ones while watching a good movie. Tip: please don’t watch Blue Valentine, although Valentine is in the movie name, it’s a very depressing, non valentine movie (and yes, even when Ryan Gosling is the main character), so watch a feelgood movie like ‘Ride Along’, ‘Valentine’s day’ or ‘Due Date’ instead.

I hope you all have a great Valentine and that you’ll not only receive love on the 14th of February but also the rest of the year! Lots of love from me!

New York Fashion Week

Although it’s freezing, snowing and ice cold in the Big Apple, nothing stands fashionistas from all over the world in the way to attend this year’s New York Fashion Week. Designers get the opportunity to present their Fall 2014 collection, so people from all over the world can get inspired by them! Not only the designers are inspiring, but also the people who visit NYFW look amazing. Here are some NYFW looks:

ImageOne of the designers who presents her Fall 2014 collection is Rebecca Minkoff. She moved to New York at 18 to pursue her dream and become a fashion designer. She has become synomyous with her cool and casual chic items. What makes her shows special and unique at the NYFW is that she always has a music element in them, she integrated music into her show and this year was no different! Aluna George sang live during her fashion show. The music shows ‘attitude’, it’s all about songs you can walk down a runway to or down the street at night, on your way to a party.

Next to Rebecca Minkoff, other designers will also exert theirselves to the outmost to present their Fall 2014 collection. You can think of: Manolo Blanik, Victoria Beckham, Michael Kors, Marc Jacobs and All Saints. Who is your favorite designer?

I want to end this post with a special story, what has nothing to do with NYFW, but with something I experienced this afternoon. Today I saw a sweet cat wandering in front of my door. He was so sweet and really liked to be cuddled. There was nothing wrong until I saw his paws were shaking and he also had no collar. I found the whole situation alarming, so I decided to put a post on Facebook group, where people from around the city usually offer free goods. There’s a big number of people member of this group, so I thought it would reach a lot of people and luckily it worked!! The owners of the cat recognized their cat ‘Tonie’, who was lost for 7 days and they were on their way to pick him up. In the meanwhile I fed him some tuna and he kept nuzzling up against me, so cute! The owners were very happy to have their cat back and really had missed him!!

Miu Miu fashion video

Image

There’s a first time for everything. I wanted to do something different today, so I decided to make my first fashion video. To be honest, I didn’t feel well these couple of days, I’ve been a little ‘fluish’, so I made videos and wrote my blog on a saturday night, with a big cup of tea, PJ’s and a cosy blanket. I was inspired by Miu Miu, an Italian high fashion brand headed by Miuccia Prada. I think Miuccia Prada really loves cats, because cats appear frequently in the collections, and I happen to love cats too! The people in my close circle know that I adore cats, if I have a bigger place, I will absolutely have my own kitty!

Image

Ashley Madaweke, actress in of my favorite series ‘Revenge’ and blogger on Ringmybell, rocking these beautiful black Miu Miu heels.

The most beautiful Miu Miu items in my opinion are the sunglasses, I love the cat-eye frames they have and the sophistication they show, that’s why I put two bloggers (Chiaria Ferragni and Negin Mirsalehi) in the video wearing Miu Miu glasses. The rest of the video is inpsired by the spring and summer collection 2014. So here it comes, the very first video I’ve ever made:

Is Sarah Jessica Parker going to be the new Anna Wintour?

Sarah Jessica Parker, also known as ‘Carrie Bradshaw’ from the succesful serie Sex And the City. Next to her great acting skills, she’s also very active in the fashion industry. This week she launched her own shoe line and gave us a sneak-peak of her great SJP collection! Parker is also very close to the most powerful woman in the fashion industry: the American VOGUE’s editor-in-chief Anna Wintour.

ImageAnna Wintour has a lot of power. And that’s very handy when it comes to someone she doesn’t like. For example the famous Kim Kardashian. Wintour has never put Kardashian on a VOGUE cover and how badly Kim (and Kanye) want(s) that to happen, Anna thinks she’s just not VOGUE-worthy. She even cutted Kim out from a picture at the MET ball. But that’s not the case with Sarah Jessica Parker, she has made it into Wintour’s fashionable inner circle. They enjoy private lunches together, Sarah has been consulted on a stunning array of VOGUES’s big moves over the last several months and Anna Wintour hosted a great fundraiser in SJP’s house for the very own president Obama! Is Sarah Jessica Parker going the be the new Obama of fashion? I hope so! I’m really fond of her, I find her absolutely VOGUE-worthy and think that she has the potential to become the new head of VOGUE.

ImageSJP actually called one of her shoes ‘The Carrie

Pay attention to the black Manolo Blahnik shoes when you watch this video, SJP has exactly the same ones in her new shoe line!! She called them ‘The Diana‘.

It’s not sure if Sarah Jessica Parker is going to be Anna Wintour’s replacement, but I really think she deserves it and that she has the whole package to become the new ‘Obama’ of fashion. What do you think?

Paying for Marc Jacobs with Instagram posts and tweets #MJDaisyChain

Louis Vuitton: Runway - Paris Fashion Week Spring / Summer 2012

Marc Jacobs, we all know this fabolous designer. Marc Jacobs opened a new store in (my favorite city) New York, it’s called the Daisy Marc Jacobs Tweet Shop, and it’s selling its wares for the amount of zero dollars! Pinch me please! The shop accepts a so called social currency, which means that you have to send a tweet, Instagram or Facebook post tagged #MJDaisyChain, in exchange for Marc Jacobs goods. It’s a new form of marketing and advertisement. Every #MJdaisyChain contributes to the marketing of Marc Jacobs and has a certain value. The pop up store will be open from 7 Februari to 9 February 2014. So, don’t hesitate and stop by if you’re around in New York, shop your favorite Marc Jacob item for free, get your nails done in the nail art area, take some pictures in the photobooth and enjoy some drinks, food and free WiFi. It’s going to be amazing, too bad I can’t be there! 

Marc-Jacobs-Ad

Marc Jacobs goes above and beyond and is really making New York Fashion week more exciting. I think this campaign is going to be a blast and that Marc Jacobs is going to be thé talk of New York Fashion Week with this launch of this unique concept!

What are you waiting for? Tag #MJDaisychain

Céline spring inspiration

Image Although it’s still winter, it’s never too early to get some inspiration.:) The spring collection from Céline really catched my eye. It’s still a little winterish, but it’s almost always cold and rainy in the Netherlands, so you will probably still wear sweaters and turtlenecks in April. I really love the simplicity and class of this collection, so I decided to find some affordable similairs!
