Bag at You ♥ Fashion, lifestyle and travel blog

Wow, this outfit made me feel classy and fashionable at once. Like an intentional woman I walked out the door and as I felt the rays of sun touch my face, I knew it was going to be a good day. With only a few cards, my phone and lipstick in my bag, I started walking and I was accidentally caught dancing. I don't remember exactly why I did that....

I am just thrilled to publish this interview with a very dear and special friend! When we met in Leiden 10 years ago, I was immediately impressed by Charlotte. I thought of her as a hotshot, not only because she was very beautiful and stylish, but also because I saw her as a very ambitious person who knew exactly what she wanted, and - even more admirable - how to...

Some people say that dreaming is for those who are afraid to see reality; others argue that your dreams will make you turn cant's into can's. They will make you grow and achieve goals you had never thought you could. I probably don't have to tell you that I am part of the second group and totally agree with Walt Disney, who once quoted: 'If you can dream it, you can...

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. We enjoyed an amazing Indian...

Grab your bag and go to Wilde Zwijnen in Amsterdam. It has been quite a while now that I had a very fine dinner at this restaurant, but I just didn't find the right time to publish this article. Until now! A true hotspot in Amsterdam Oost, literally Oost as it was quite a ride to get there. But as the pictures will tell, it was all worth it. Wilde...

In about 133 days it is going to happen: our wedding day!! Yes, I admit I am counting down the days for this big day. Most people who are married are telling me that the 'anticipatory pleasure' is almost just as good fun as the wedding itself. So I am going it, like visiting at least 15 different wedding dresses stores with my 'say-yes-to-the-dress-crew', watching 13 different wedding...

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...

Winter is not even here and I am already dreaming of Spring/Summer 2016. Yes, I am too excited for the SS 2016 collections to come in store, which will take at least another couple of months or so. But, what can I do? Serious love can't wait, right?! And even though Love Moschino is not taking fashion always to seriously, this label made me fall deeply in love....

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...

What?! In the world of fashion, everything is accepted. So once in a while, I feel like disobeying the rules and one way of doing that is to mix and match. Not only in terms of items, brands or styles but also in gender. Whomever said that a man's though looking backpack does not match an off-the-shoulder dress, a pair of sky-high heels or a feminine leopard coat is...
