Bags & Fashion

Grab your bag and go skiing in Italy! Although Easter has been a while ago, I still owe you this "postcard- story" from our little getaway in the Italian Alps.

And although it was already spring time he assured me that there would be excellent snow cover in Breuil Cervinia, a small...

Sit down & relax! Now that you arrived in a true backpack heaven you should enjoy it to the max! The world of backpacks is enormous and only a few of these rucksacks have made it to heaven. These bags come in all kinds of versions in terms of styles, brands, sizes, colors, prize ranges, forms, materials, etc. The most classic form of the backpack is still very popular. Its characteristics are...

Vintage items are very popular nowadays. It sounds exclusive, chic and unique. It is an item that is hard to get, made of good quality and already has a long history (like my grandmother's bag, see previous post). The best example of a famous vintage piece of clothing is the black and white Valentino dress that Julia Roberts wore when she won the Academy Award in 2001 for her...

We just closed Fashion Month, the month where famous fashion designers show their new collections in the four big fashion capitals of the world: New York, London, Milan and Paris. Fashion Week was originally set up by Chambre Syndicale de la Haute Couture Parisienne, the organisation that monitored French fashion and trends in the 19th century. This institution decided to set fixed times for buyers to come and look...

The last few weeks I have been constantly instagram-ming! As from 11 February, when Fashion Week started off in New York, until today while Fashion Week is closing in Paris, I have been literally following all that happened in the four fashion capitals. Although I wasn't in New York nor London nor Milan nor Paris, I wanted to see how my favorite bloggers were dressed and which bag they carried...

Yes, it is March! We start hearing bird songs in the morning, mother nature is giving us more and more sunshine and we enjoyed the first beers on the terrace this weekend. We can shop the newest items for our spring/summer-closet so we are in full preparation for the new season! You may say: #summeriscoming! And when you think about summer, you think about the beach! The beach is my association...

Yeah, we are in the middle of ski-season! Maybe you have already been up in the mountains this winter or perhaps you are still planning your trip to the white hills? In any case, you are more fortunate than I am as I don't have any plans to pack my bag to go skiing this season. I have always been a fanatic skier as I was born and raised by two overenthusiastic...

Whoooo - I am still processing all the amazing collections I have seen this Fashion Week. As announced in the post last week, I went to see the F/W 2016 fashion shows of Bas Kosters, Mirte van Wijngaarden and Claes Iversen (in the outfits demonstrated in the pictures above).
