Glasses and Green tea

Bongiorno, this is a difficult morning for me waking up......I finally got the guts to wear my new glasses. I hate them and love them a t the same time. But I guess they are a nessesarity to enjoy live in all in it's finest details!

Comfort and Ease

The Theyskens Theory pre- fall 2012 collection by Olivier Theyskens has an everyday kind of ease. Even though the garments look really relaxed you can see his tailor eye in the cutting of the details. It looks very cool to me. I love the translucent bomber jacket. What's up with the arm behind the head though.....I guess it gives the look even more nonchalance, well done! Really great wearable pieces!

Never ending love for TYE DYE..

If a bouncing elephant doesn't make you happy, what will? I just found a lovely blog from IEFKE DE ROOS. She makes beautiful handmade garments. Her (accidental) prints are remarkable. Really nice to see how a Dutch girl follows her dream and just does what she is good at. She makes the most friendly bracelets as well, also available online! Ok now it seems that I am just promoting her. Nothing of this all is true, I just really like the fantasy world that she creates.....for herself and for others to join.
She recently opened a new blog as well named after her cat: Pataticus Maximus, what a great name for a blog and even more for a cat. What is it with cats anyway, I see them popping up everywhere lately, especially in advertisements from big fashion brands.... I noticed an increasing 'sudden' love for cats by myself as well. I have no idea were this comes from....
Well, I have bigger things to worry about right now, packing my bags for BOLOGNA! Ciao!

YSL Elegance & Style

While glancing through Rika magazine issue nr. 5. I came acros this quote of Yves Saint Laurent.......nothing more to ad.

KATE- BOWIE-KITTEN.....eat your heart out...

Poetic vision of SOMETHING...

This video for sure is so poetic. If I quote Karl Lagerfeld about this Paris- Bombay Metiers D'art show :" It is not there to be rich, it is there to look good." Extraordinary.....To see this beautiful craftmanship in the making, goes beyond my wildest dreams....This collection is about English CHIC and something elegant with an modern inspired touch from India.
Also this video of Vanessa Paradis, Karls Muse, is so lovely. It is a song from the original soundtrack of the movie “A Monster in Paris” Vanessa Paradis wears a dress from the Spring-Summer 2011 Ready-to-Wear collection specially created by Karl Lagerfeld:

This picture is for me so inspiring, I think I found it on the Sartorialist, I have it on my desktop for a while now....The color of the angora knit is so sweet, but on this girl it looks so cool. The high waisted trousers are by acne, I recognize the white buttonhole. Really strong if a brand can separate themselves by such a small detail...Love her hair and her nose piercing....I also found this picture of Elin Kling and it makes me wonder if I want an earpiercing like this:

Never let me go..

I can't seem to get enough of this song by Florence and the machine. Maybe it is the weather that I seem to like a sad song like this. It is so gorgeous. I love the way she looks, also, great colors for fall;)

Love it..

Light versus Dark

Hanneli Mustaparta did it again....snapped in an extraordinary outfit. She just perfectly blends away in the background of my blog. It is not that I am especially into pastels, but it sometimes evens out all the bold colors and becomes stronger in combination with black...
I just love the idea of wearing light colors in periods of dark weather. This cardigan is from Stine Goya....Ok, I am off for finding the perfect light outfit!

J.W. Anderson S/S 12 by Suzy Bubble, sorry the shoes were too horrible to look at...
Some general inspiration...sometimes I am more into basic and casual wear, and sometimes I just like it a bit weird. I love the striped trousers from J.W.Anderson with the lace detailing on the side. I also found a (for me) new dutch fashion blog: Love Aesthetics, fresh and original.
Since I am busy with decorating my new house I also like to look at some interior blogs and I especially love her interior chapter.  I have seen this idea somewhere else as well, but I find it still very cool. I might try this one at my bedroom...

I looked at the Rodarte fall winter '08 collection again and suddenly realized what a timeless collection this is. The knits are extraordinary. The silhouette is simple with the wavy skirts. But the tops, and the (hand knitted) cardigans, have the most amazing textures....It is nice to treasure some of the moments that happen in fashion some years back, instead of always rushing into the future....PS. Love this hair!

In the fittingroom...I wanted to try on a cape jacket, but I changed my mind in the fitting room and made a pic of myself instead...PS I love this leather stroke skirt by AVELON. ( Yes, another amsterdam-based brand! yeah!)
