Since the backpack has come into the world it has been hard to conceive a time before this popular bag. Backpacks are practical, functional, easy to carry and you can simply fill it up. As you carry this bag with two straps on your back I would say that it is the kindest bag to your body if you have to carry heavy loads. For these reasons this bag has...

When I was a lawyer I always dressed formal and elegant. But now that I have changed my career-path, I tend to dress more casual. However sometimes I long to dress like the older days: high heels, high waisted skirt, a white blouse and - of course - a statement bag! This bag stole my heart as from the moment I set eyes on him. It has all the features of the perfect...

This week will be all about vintage on this blog. With proud I must admit that my grandma is a true fashionista. She is gracious, unique, innovative, elegant she is always wearing heels. Not only is she a very big example, this lady is also my biggest inspiration. As long as I can remember I go shopping in three generations: my grandma, my mother, my twin-sister and me. Even today, now that it...

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...

This summer we go wild..! We do not only use the cool animal prints, no - we take it just a little further. This season we carry the actual beast! Do you remember the episode of Sex and the City, when Mr. Big gives Carrie her crystal duck clutch? It was something I had never seen before and I very much appreciated that glittery duck! Although that flying animal didn't...

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...

I am totally in love with this fringe bag because it is dancing around while I am walking! Although suede is not the best material to wear in the Dutch wet weather, I still prefer to take the risk because I love bringing along bags in this fabric. This timeless bag looks smart and I could wear this purse every day - especially this spring/summer as the fringes will be...

You know that feeling that you get once all the pieces fit?! The moment you know that everything you did was for a reason?! The second your heart is finally in line with your mind?! That is the feeling I have for two weeks now and I am so excited to finally reveal the good news! As you know, I have a big passion - a craze for BAGS! And I also told...

Yes!!! Spring is only 29 days away and the sun is shining! As I am counting down the days for Spring to begin, I am also preparing my closet for the new season. Obviously this is a good reason to add some new bags to my collection;)! But we shouldn't forget about the other accessories that will complete our look, like your sunglasses! I love accessories that match my outfit...
