Bags & Fashion

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:...

So I thought it would be fun to try something new on Bag at You: a recap of all the blog posts published in the months April & May. Bag at You has a mix of outfit posts, specific "bag" articles and hotspots, which are mainly published on Tuesdays and Thursdays. April and May have been busy months and June will even be more bussier, all in a...

The 68th Cannes Film Festival has come to an end and besides the excitement we felt for who would be the new award winner of the Palme d'Or and other trophies, we were all awaiting the pictures on Vogue of the most dashing gowns worn to each of the premieres. As you will see in the pictures below, I love dresses decorated with sequins which most of the stars enriched with...

The Chanel Girl Bag totally swept me off my feet. You might already have seen this bag in the fashion show reports, on fashion blogs or in the windows of the Chanel boutiques and then you know what I am talking about. This year boy meets girl. As you probably know, the Chanel Boy Bag has been around for a few years now and is each season reinvented...

Today the first real fashion festival took place in the Netherlands. Modemusthaves proudly presented the Fierce Fashion Festival in Amsterdam. Although it all started with a lot of rain, Marlieke, Sanny and I eventually enjoyed Geza Weisz & Manuel Broekman and Kriss Kross with our sunnies. While the fashion show by Bastiaan van Schaik took place, we could score a good-luck bracelet by Riverstones, some new Ibiza People apparel, tattoos from Chique Tattoos or a...

You probably didn't miss the latest fuss about the amount of waste of plastic bags. This commotion exploded after the European Parliament set a maximum of 90 plastic bags per person by the end of 2019. Apparently a European person uses approximately 198 plastic bags in 2010, of which 90% are lightweight plastic bags that can't be reused and therefore more likely to litter the environment and strongly pollute water and...
