that bomber jacket- 1st look at Bij Ons Vintage

Featured items: bomber jacket and sports top by bij ons vintage/ skirt by H&M
Location: Bij Ons Vintage, Amsterdam

Gotta love vintage shopping! Luckily, Amsterdam has got the coolest and raddest shops scattered all around town. "Bij Ons Vintage" is one of those cute little places that you just had to visit when you're in town, and pick up a couple of rad 80s' sportswear and 70s' vintage dresses while you at it!

I popped by the shop last week and put together a couple outfits, a mini lookbook if you will which will be posted on here every other day. (So don't forget to check back every once in a while for more looks!)

I've been seriously into bomber jackets lately. It's just so versitile and comfortable. You could wear it with some denim shorts, a plaid shirt around your waist and a pair of cutout boots for a grungy look, (which is amazing for the festival season!), or pair it with some leather shorts/skirts/skorts and killer heels for a sports lux vibe. How do you like to wear a bomber jacket? I'd love to know!

The ones that got away!

Remember those items you took out of your shopping cart or returned promptly because somehow you were convinced you didn't need it or didn't know how to style it? And few months later when you finally came to a conclusion that it was the stupidest thing you've ever done in your life and swore to haunt them down but totally failed? I'm sure a lot of you have got such an experience.

But guess what, those fashion items like many things in life will show up when you least expected and present themselves right in front of your face! 

Just 10 minutes ago, I accidentally saw the Mango Outlet ad on my facebook page and decided to take a look and possibly score some bargains. And dear God there they were, the familiar black leather stripy sandals from last year's summer collection were right there staring back at me! You know the ones that took over the entire blogosphere by storm? 

Why did I ever let them go?? (As seen on the beautiful blogger song of style!)

So I explored the website a bit further with the unobtainable excitement and bam! Here she is! The oversized winter coat I was lusting over for ages!

(As seen on the fabulous blog COTTDS!)

You can still find these items (and many other sale pieces) on for a great price! And yes, you're very welcome! Happy shopping!

a quick trip to Cologne

Location: Cologne

Just had an quick but amazing trip to Cologne for the MTV beats festival (and of course some curryworst!). Had an absolute blast at the festival! Although the music wasn't really up my alley, but the summer vibe and fantastic DJ sets rocked my socks off! And that famous Cologne Cathedral managed to take my breathe away the second I laid my eyes on it, well, again! Really kept my outfit simply and easy here since I wanted to be as comfy as possible during the drive down there and for the festival as well.

What did you do this weekend? I'd love to know!

let's talk about stylight!

I’m pretty sure by now you've already heard about the (relatively) new fashion platform Stylight! Like many of you (probably?), my curiosity had grown more and more since the name started to appear on almost every fashion blog on earth, so I had to head over there and gave it a go myself! 
I’m a frequent visitor/user of various fashion platforms such as Lookbook, Polyvore and Fashiolista (just to name a few!). I think it’s a great way to discover new blogs, brands and fashion trends. As many bloggers have already pointed out when reviewing Stylight. It really is the best combo of Pinterest , Fashiolista and more! In addition to heart your favorite fashion items and looks, you can also add quotes, music and videos to go with your looks which makes your creation much more fun and personal! 

Please check out my page on Stylight here and don’t forget to comment and follow! See you there!

longing for summer

Sadly summer has come and past here in the lowlands! The dark, windy and gloomy weather has returned! Hopefully it's not the case wherever you're from! Anyways, I've been a bit M.I.A these days on my blog as you might have noticed (or not!). The grayness in the sky clearly had some kind of negative affect on my productivity. Will be back soon with some more outfit posts, so stay tuned! XOXO

blaze it up

Photographed by Bart Rondeel
Featured items: blazer by Karl legarfeld/ jeans by Zara/ bag by Tommy Hilfiger

It's not often that I'd dress up (even for the slightest!). But every once in a bluemoon, I'd opt for something that actually looks office appropriate! (I do have an office job after all...) And nothing does the job better than a good old black blazer. This Karl Lagerfeld number is definitely one of my favorites in my ever growing black blazer collection. Love that it's not actually slim fitted and it's non- traditional blazer shaped! And it's just so easy to throw on over eveything!

dress it down

Featured items: dress and denim gilet by Tommy Hilfiger/ shoes by Topshop/ sunnies by H&M Men

This off white dress is got to be the girliest item in my entire wardrobe. Got it a couple of years ago for a company Christmas party and hadn't touched it ever since. Dressed it down (way down) with a distressed denim vest and my good old Topshop cutout boots here. It's one of my outfit options for a festival I'm going next weekend...
