Having been in the countryside with my children all summer, I’m constantly  greeted by all sorts of creepy crawlies: bees, ants, flies, spiders, beetles, you name it. As a true city girl, I’ve long felt uneasy with these little creatures. They just never liked me, I never liked them. We simply couldn’t find common ground. :-) But now I’ve actually started to embrace them and see their beauty. It’s in fact inspired me a lot this season fashion wise. Why not try to blend in, right? When in Rome…

After a long pause I’m now back with some more style catching… I’m going through a phase right now where I’m really interested in looking at different fashion designers and what they’re currently up to in terms of the direction of their collections, and I wanted to start with no other than the woman who [...]

Loved by celebrities and laymen alike, Tabitha Simmons continues to make irresistible shoes. Whether you like flats or killer heals there’s something for every taste.

I want to start out by saying sorry to everyone for the momentary silence on my part. I’ve been crazy busy with so many things. Not only am I preparing for the birth of my first child, I’ve very desperately tried my best to follow the NY, London, Milan and Paris Fashion Weeks by squeezing [...]

I just came across something interesting I wanted to share with you: The Invisible Bike Helmet. Hövding is a bicycle helmet unlike any other currently on the market. It’s ergonomic, it’s practical, it complies with all the safety requirements, and it’s also subtle and blends in with what else you are wearing. 2

Here’s another one for you. In my opinion Diane Kruger does more justice to this cool Chanel creation. Hands down. She looks stunning. The dress simply looks so much better on her than on the model at the Chanel show. 2

I was having a look at some of my favourite designers’ collections for the coming season and came across something interesting. When you look at fashion collections on the catwalk (worn by models), it’s very different to how it actually translates in real life. To me personally this just shows how the catwalk does not [...]

I wanted to share with you my favourite fashion illustrator. I just find her work incredibly beautiful and interesting and I can’t help but feel inspired.

By wandering around the beautiful jewelry stores of Paris I came across a designer I had not heard of before. But by looking at her current and past collections, the question  remained, why was this the first time I’m hearing of her? 4

One of my new favorites is Armand Ventilo, a Ready-to-Wear high-end French brand started by two brothers Jacques and Armand in 1972. Now the brand has over 50 [...]
