Bags & Fashion

If Sex and the City was still running, Carrie would probably have been the first to show the fashion world that Manolo Blahnik will present his first bag collection for Autumn / Winter 2015-2016. In line with the famous and desirable shoes of the Spanish designer, who founded his empire in 1970, the bags will be evening clutches to be worn by the most contemporary and stylish women of today. The bags...

I love to go away for the weekend. A quick visit to the sun, a romantic citytrip or a family visit is just the perfect getaway to relax and charge your battery. Last month I visited Italy twice and only took this Eastpak Transverz Trolley. Always a challenge of course as you have to make smart choices to make sure that everything fits within this hand luggage bag,...

The 23rd edition of Mercedes-Benz FashionWeek Amsterdam is a wrap and that means that the full report of the SS16 Catwalk at MBFWA can be given. I visited seven shows & loved each of the collections in a different way. To share my thoughts with you I selected several images of my favorite pieces of each of the fashion designers. If you look at the pictures we can conclude that...

As FashionWeek Amsterdam is still going on, I can not just give you the full Catwalk report. What I can do however is showing you the top 10 bags spotted at MBFWA so far. These women were carrying true arm-candy. You will see that there are some real designer pieces as well as high street clutches. Some are very colorful, others shine in own simplicity. And there were also...

As I am such a huge fan of Snapchat (read here why), I created short movies of the nights & shows that I attended at Mercedes-Benz FashionWeek Amsterdam. Sorry for the lack of sharpness & quality, but I hope it gives you a very good first impression of the amazing collections shown on the catwalk. Stay tuned on this blog (and Snapchat) as more of these kind of...

July is here and we definitely physically feel that it is summer! It is crazily hot for Dutch standards and we can officially call this thing a heatwave. So last night, tonight, tomorrow night and so on I will be spending my free nights outdoors, preferably in the park. Yes, whether it will be take out from SLA, a bbq or simple drinks and snacks, I will go out for a picnick....

In about eight days the Mercedes-Benz FashionWeek Amsterdam starts for the 23rd time. For ten fashion packed days long, we can enjoy the renewed program divided into the Catwalk, Fashion Lab and Downtown presented by Zalando. Fashion Week will kick off with the 'Fashion is WOW'-party in De Marktkantine on 3 July (buy your tickets here). In the FashionWeek Amsterdam blog post I explained all about the origin of this fashion event and the first official...

I totally feel the Italian vibes as I am visiting this country twice this month! Lucky me! Last weekend I went to Pescara, to cheer for the sportsmen that participated in the Iron man, specifically my sister, brother and their friends. And next week my boyfriend and I will fly to Pisa and drive in our white Fiat 500 to his parents in Toscane. I have not even unpacked...

Mr. Pineapple and I are inseparable this weekend! On Wednesday I flew to Italy, where I am currently enjoying myself with five athletes that are going to do the Ironman-triathlon. My job is to make sure they eat sufficient carbo-bombs, sleep many hours and cheer as loud as I can this Sunday! And since each Iron (wo)man brought his/her girl/boyfriend as well, I decided that Mr. Pineapple will be mine for the...

The wedding season is on! It is time for love, time to party and time to dress up. It is a big day full of joy and emotion. It takes a lot of planning and organizing and I guess that the easiest part is saying "yes" to the question, "Will you take this man/woman to be your lawfully wedded husband/wife". I believe that the bride has to accomplish the most challenging task:...
