it's all about the shoes

It really doesn't matter what you're wearing, as long as you're wearing the right shoes.
Personally, i'm a huge fan of stilleto's. It is the easiest way to jazz up your outfit without making too much of an effort. The old t-shirt and jeans look, will look amazing if you wear it with over the top ,colored, and eyecatching heels.
It's ideal if you don't have the time to put together a stunning outfit. Shoes are really important.

picture magic

The following editorial is shot with a Polaroid 4x5 cam that was years over date. An ode to polaroid photography.
Gilet: Anne Demeulemeester. Riem: Dries van Noten
Shrug: Bruno Pieters. Bathing suit: American Apparel
Top: Anne Demeulemeester. pants: Pepe Jeans

i always loved Polaroid pictures and the way colors looked distorted.
i remember how excited i was when my mom let me pull the strip of my picture and an image slowly appeared. it was like magic to me. Polaroid stopped their production a while ago, and today i tried to imagine what my children would think of the pictures i made with that cam. our kids will be so used to seeing digitally altered and perfect images everywhere that they'll probably think we were crazy for ever using that thing.Polaroid pictures were always kind of "spoiled" because the contrast was off, and you always took pictures with weird colors in them. But now, i think those colors are perfect. Just because they really aren't perfect. and i'm sure my kids will try to recreate that effect with their fancy computers.

fashion rebels, i salute you

i really like to thank you for your positive reactions. i am now fully inspired and motivated to show you a different side of fashion. My whole point with this blog is to make you guys understand this crazy fashion world a little bit more and to show you not to take it that serious. i went to amfi - amsterdam international fashion week - this year. and i hated the fakeness of all those people, nobody is sincere, models are treated like objects. i abosolutly hated it.i think fashion is not about dresses that cost 4 figures and throwing milion dollar celeb party's. it's about feeling good about yourself. and if you feel good wearing "last years" headband, wear it!

i also have a little DIY surprise coming up that will only cost you 3 to 4 dollars/euro's/pounds.
i will be posting blogs every monday and friday

this year is all about in - your - face accessories. The more they don't match your outfit, the better. let's take advantage of this trend and buy stuff without contemplating about if it's going to match your outfit today. Buy everything you like, even if it's really crazy and make it work. That's what being a fashionista is all about.

fall 09

photo:elle.com

I'm really enjoying summer at the moment, but I wouldn't mind if the seasons changed in a snap because this beautiful collection by Versace is making me lust for fall! This collection is a mix between Glam Rock and Office Lolita. It has something very sophisticated but naughty at the same time. For example : The very romantic hairstyle but super kinky boots. I like that there's just one pair of pants in this collection. This fall seems to be all about multi colored leggins, killer overknee boots, wavy hair and sexy pumps. This collection consists of lot's of black and white pieces and a few color splashes here and there. I love the color contrasts.

It is femininity to the max!
What do you think?
