February net-a-porter outfit

Hi everyone!

While I was crying over all the beautiful (and expensive) clothes on net a porter, I decided to pick some pieces and create my dream outfit. There were so many things I loved but I chose this classy outfit.

Naamloos
I’ll start with the top. This is a Marni crystal-embellished jacquard top. I fell in love with it because of the amazing collar.
collar
The metallic jacquard is trimmed with diamonds. And the collar sits smoothly against your skin.

leather

I chose these Helmut Lang’s stretch leather leggings because it will give the outfit a ”cool” but sophisticated look.

heels

These leather Gianvito Rossi pumps go perfectly well with the leather leggings and I think pumps are the only kind of shoes you can wear under leather leggings.

I used:
Marni metallic jacquard – €980
Helmut Lang stretch leather leggings – €840
Gianvito Rossi pumps – €440

Kendall for Marc Jacobs

Kendall Jenner has finally made it to high fashion! Last week she walked her first show for Marc Jacobs during New York fashion week.
Kendall wore a completely sheer top, a cropped pair of brown pants and a wig. Her eyebrows were bleached which made her look like a total different person.

Kendalls look has been criticised a lot in the media the past few days but I think she totally rocked it. She is definitely born to be a runaway model!

Sophistication, woolen coats and unfussy cashmere

Finally! My first 2014 fashion week post is a fact! 🙂

I haven’t been very active lately, but with finals coming up I just can’t find the time to write a decent post.

But a new year also means the start of fashion week, which has given me a reason to write something again.

I’ve been in bed all week and it gave me some time to watch the NYFW shows. I have seen some amazing collections and I just needed to share them with you guys.


I’ll start with the last show I’ve seen. That was Serge Azrias’ Joie show.

I think this fall collection is very pretty and simple. I’ve got a slight obsession with anything black, I just love simple black outfits and I think that’s what this collection’s about. It’s all very sophisticated and simple, things you can wear to work or school. There were plenty of camel and cream, substantial knits and unfussy cashmere. In one word: Casual.

My favourite piece of the collection:

 

 The next collection is the Sass & Bide collection


Although I loved almost everything I saw in this show, I don’t know if I’d wear it myself.
You need amazing legs to wear any piece of the collection. Which wasn’t a problem for the models on the catwalk. If you’ve seen previous collections of Sass & Bide then you’ll probably recognize a lot. The collection was a typical Sass & Bide style with a largely black, white and gold palette.
But still the collection looked very fresh and ready to wear.


My favourite piece:


And the last one: Ralph Lauren Fall 2014

 There’s only one word I could think of when I saw the Ralph Lauren fashion show: chic.

Everything is so typical Ralph Lauren. The enormous coats, the heats and pantalons.
It is not my favourite collection of NYFW but I really like the chic look.
I absolutely loved the big coats and this is probabl the most beautiful coat I have ever seen:

 

 

How to get in shape at home

sdad

For a long time I thought being a member of the gym was the only way to get in shape.
Well, I was wrong!
In January this year I decided to join the local gym. I wanted this for such a long time but I always tried to do some work outs at home. I didn’t really see any progress so I thought that it was impossible to get in shape withouth going to the gym.

I now see that this is total nonsens. I’m the kind of girl who doesn’t feel comfortable working out while lots of people are watching me. 
I’ve started working out at home again, my biggest inspiration: youtube. You really don’t need to spend a lot of money on a membership at the gym when all you have to do is go to youtube. Since a couple of months I do yoga, pilates and even the Victoria’s secret work outs. Apart from the fact that I feel amazing, I can also see teh progress my body’s making. If you make a playlist with all the videos you think you might need to reach your goal, you don’t have to worry ever again!

I’ll post the links of the videos I use at the end of this post.
I have to say, I didn’t start working out because I needed to lose weight. I just wanted to be in shape, to train my muscles.
If you do want to lose ( a lot of) weight, I don’t know if the work outs I do will be right for you. To lose weight you have to do a mix of cardio and strength work outs. I don’t do cardio at home, but you can always go out for a walk of course.

I’ve also paid a lot of attention to my diet. I don’t drink soda or whole milk. As a snack I eat nuts/seeds or fruit.
I really feel much better since I’ve started eating healthier and working out. And of course I have days that I do eat junk food, but who doesn’t? You just need to find a balance and everything will be okay!
And you don’t always have time to work out but just try to do a few excercises in the morning, some in the afternoon and also some before you go to bed. You don’t need to be working out for 2 hours. Just like your diet, find a balance.

If you want to start working out and live healthier: You can do it! Never think that it’s impossible for you to get in shape.

The perfect outfit

One of my biggest (and meaningless) addictions is looking at clothes on net-a-porter.
I love pretty much everything on that site. But it’s such a waste of time because I (and I think most of you too) won’t ever be able to buy those clothes, unless I become very smart, rich or end up being married with a rich guy.

Today I decided to make my addiction a little less meaningless. I have picked out some pieces to create ” the” perfect outfit. Just because we can’t effort Valentino or Prada does’t mean we can’t use it as inspiration for when we go to the high street!

My outfit:
dress

VALENTINO
Beaded tulle and wool-blend crepe mini dress
€7500
I think this dress is so cute.
I absolutely love dresses with collors. It makes the dress look so sophisticated.
I know it’s not affordable but there are so many cheaper copies of dresses like this. I have one from Primark and it’s only €14 pounds. And there are so many different colors.

coat

GIAMBATTISTA VALLI
Oversized textured coat
€2,972.97
Same sweet color.
The coat just looks so soft and pretty.
And again there are many similair coats. H&M sells coats like this.

bagap

LOEWE
Amazona large leather tote
€1,600

shoes

CHARLOTTE OLYMPIA
Belle crocheted and velvet pumps
€895

bracelet

ERICKSON BEAMON
Whiter Shade Of Pale Swarovski crystal gold-plated cuff
€982

Milan fashion week: My favorites

Hi!

Since my London fashion week post was very popular and I really loved making it I decided to make a Milan fashion week favorites post. Of course I have been watching all the shows and unfortunately I didn’t like a lot of the shows. I think because I was so excited about London fashion week and I loved a lot of shows there. But I did find some brands who did have decent clothes.

The first one to catch my eye is Emilio Pucci Spring 2014
I loved the outfits because it is all streetstyle. It’s something we would wear and for me that’s one of the most important things when I look at a show. I also love the special creations, the things I won’t ever wear because that’s fashion, but sometimes you’re just looking for inspiration and for me the Pucci show had that inspiration.

_ON_0717.450x675 Joan Smalls
_ON_0815.450x675 Ophelie Guillermand

The second show was the Jil Sander Spring 2014 show
Simple but effective

MARC0093.450x675 Kayley Chabot
MARC0108.450x675 Ine Neefs

And the last one: Salvatore Ferragamo Spring 2014

These were my favorites of the Milan fashion week!!

London fashion week; my favorites

Hi!

I’m a little late with this but nevermind!
London fashion week just finished and for me that is the most amazing fashion week of the year. I love the work of all the british designers. I thought I’d just post some of my favorite outfits/shows of the LFW 2013. They’re al black and white , cause that are kind of the only colors I wea :)r. My fave show was the Burberry Prorsum both spring/summer and fall/winter.

I loved almost everything I saw on the catwalk of the Burberry show this year! All the clothes are so casual but still look very luxurious. I picked the outfit Jordan Dunn was wearing because I think she looked amazing in it and I love the blouse.

I didn’t really like the fall/winter collection of beautiful soul London but I did like the spring/summer looks. Love this casual black dress.
