Natural materials

Monday night was the official launch of House of Eléonore, a luxury brand that creates exquisite diamond jewels. This label is supported by Royal Asscher, a leading diamond company that has been owned by an Amsterdam family for 161 years. House of Eléonore designs one of a kind jewellery using man-made diamonds and fair trade gold. To celebrate this big opening, an exclusive cocktail party was held in Het Scheepvaartmuseum in...

Sometimes I just feel like wearing something that will make me stand out. Like an oversized blue coat, an obvious striped dress, sparkling sneakers and - of course - a bag that will turn heads (please scroll down to get the look). As you might already know, I have a very big weakness for things that are created by hand, sustainable, exclusive and made of natural materials. And if that item...

Pure beauty is hard to find these days in the Western world, especially things that weren't created at the expense of someone else. We want it all, by preference as soon as possible and at a low cost. As I was walking through these gardens of Puento Romano in Marbella, on my way to the amazing Restaurant Serafina, I was taking a closer look at these flowers, that have been...

Get the look: Cut out dress by Alexander Wang x H&M (buy similar one at asos.com), converse all stars, feather hairclip by By PiPit and Otra-Parte Bag. It is my birthday, yeah! And as a twin, I first need to congratulate my sister - remember her?! I quite often hear people say that they don’t like celebrating their birthday. But not me; I always love to honour the next chapter in...

Two strangers, a man and a woman. Waiting, dreaming, wondering around on a deserted platform. No strings that seem to attach, aren't there? Maybe, if you look closer you will see some comparisons; they both wear black, both wrapped in leather and both carry some fine pieces of Italian craftsmanship. Yes, that must be it; these two share a love for leather bags! I already told you in the...

Today I  finally show you what I was wearing exactly one week ago on the openingsnight of Mercedes-Benz FashionWeek Amsterdam. This is the kind of outfit I love to wear when I go out. It is uncomplicated, comfortable and accentuate my "good parts". Oke, I hear you thinking, "my what"? Well, personally I love it when my blue eyes, blonde hear and legs are highlighted. That is the reason why...

This weekend I realized again that we live in such a beautiful and talented country. I was lucky to spend the weekend in Nijmegen with my family and brought these beautiful bags by MYOMY. Two shoulderbags for only two days away from home - I guess this confession coming from a bagaholic is no surprise. But I also encourage you to do the same when you go on a short weekend...

Today I show you an outfit I could wear every day of the year. This dress is an item that I put on whenever I have to make a good first impression (get similar dress here) and it also enables me to play with these colors. The blue colored spripes combine with my favorite heels, which are just as comfortable as my Nikes. On these pumps I could run a Marathon...

I love playing with accessories, especially when they are fashionable and functional. Today I show you my newest friend, my leather blue bum bag by & Other Stories! Or you may name it a fanny pack (US), waist wallet (Canada), hip pack (UK), moon bag (South Africa) or a heuptas (NL). Now that these names have been enumerated, you probably understand what I am talking about. This bag is...

Last weekend I enjoyed the greatest weekend with my sister in Nijmegen, the city that she is currently calling her hometown. Each other weekend she is coming to Amsterdam (check out her post From Nimma to Mokum), but this weekend I grabbed my bag and went to the far east of the Netherlands. My big sister and I obviously went shopping in Nijmegen, the biggest town of Gelderland. At FashionWeek...
