Bags & Fashion

Merry Christmas! The streets and the houses are perfectly decorated and everything seems to be ready for the best holiday of the year. It is the time to celebrate, to enjoy incredible dinners  and to unwrap a lot of gifts. You may have also bought some presents for your parents, friends or boyfriend. And even though a nicely wrapped gift is part of the fun, you might have not had the time yet to...

Christmas is all around: we can hear the Jingle Bells everywhere and we are ready for the carols. In eight days we will be celebrating this traditional party with our friends and family, hopefully on a very special location, with a miraculous set table and many happy faces. No matter what the dress code of your event will be, you want to look great with a festive touch. As...

Because the cold weather is asking us to stay in, I made a selection of crazy bags that will instantly put a smile on your face! I all found them on Pinterest, the best place to find your inspiration. Which one is your favourite? And if you are in doubt whether you dare to carry such a bag, please do try it!! Because these quirky bags are totally on trend...

By the time you read this article, I will be up in the air, heading in a southwards direction, crossing the borders of Belgium, France and Spain until we finally reach our destination: Marrakesh! Together with my fiancé (love saying this word out loud!!), we will be wandering through this magical city - just the two of us! I guess it is the perfect pre-honeymoon destination, alone for the...

Winter has officially started! It is cold, it is grey, it is windy, it is rainy and some snow even. However, to escape from this weather and to forget about my warm boots and woolen knits for a second, I was caught daydreaming about summer dresses, big flappy hats and the new bag trends that I saw in the new Spring/Summer 2016 collections that were shown in the fashion capitals...

Keeping up with the purse terminology can become difficult and I'm therefore happy to announce that the big bag dictionary is ready for use. Baguette, clutch or tote, how do you know which bag it is? Hopefully this dictionary can help you to recognise all the models and styles in the world of bags. *** Backpack A bag carried on one's back and secured with two shoulder straps. Originally used by hikers and students but...

Hello November! But before jumping in, I have to present to you a recap of October, which was a great month! First of all, thank you!! Because you helped me winning the Unexpected Fashion Battle!! I also announced that I started a new company, The Bag Expert which is offering customised advice, marketing and communication services to brands and webshops with the focus on bags.

In only three days it is Halloween! And that is not only a good reason for a big party, but also for a brand new outfit. Because Halloween is not only the event for trick-or-treating, carving pumpkins or watching horror movies, Halloween is also the perfect day to attend a costume party. So if you want to go to such a party in accordance with the theme and...

One of my ultimate goals in life is to have a superior brand name a specific bag to me. And that is probably the reason why I envy Jane Birkin, the English actress and singer, so much. In 1981, Jane was taking a plane and was seated next to the Hermes Chief Executive, Jean Louis Dumas. She was about to take her seat when all the contents of her straw...

Last night, Balmain took over Instagram as the Balmain x HM collection was launched in New York. All the celebrities, bloggers and other elite were dressed in Balmain and even the Backstreet Boys stopped by to make this show even more glamorous than it already was. The young creative director of Balmain, Olivier Rousting, aimed to bring fashion, music and pop culture together. Karlie Kloss, Gigi Hadid & Kendall Jenner rocked the...
