Marni for H&M

With Versace still in the shops, H&M has already announced their next collaboration with Marni. On March 8th 2012, a Marni at H&M collection is released worldwide! The spring collection will have women and menswear clothes as well as accessories. I think it will be great as I love Marni, always playful and elegant. Can't wait!

New in: brogues

I love brogues lately because they are chic and comfortable at the same time. I prefer wearing heels, especially platforms, but sometimes my feet need their welldeserved break and why not in a fancy pair of brogues from the H&M trend collection? Already one of my favorite pairs of shoes.

Btw, I am stuck in bed feeling sick, I think I got the flu or something. Aargh, I hate it.. I hope it will pass soon.

I was so lucky to get the satin skirt, biker jacket and ring from the Versace for H&M collection, which are my favourites of the collection. The quality of the items is very good and I love the jacket and skirt because they have the complete Versace staple on it; leather and satin filled with studs. The bag is from ASOS, the nailpolish is Chanel Péridot and the wedges are from Ebay.
Hope you all had a great weekend!

Lion Paw

Ok, ok alright I must admit that they are quite something, but call me grazy but I think I am in love with these Lion Paw "Alex" Louboutins that Blake Lively wore on set of Gossip Girl. Four hairy toes and crystal embellished heels, yes please!!

What do you think?

Lately it is so misty here in Holland which means not the best photo lighting.. But we did our best.
Here are the results of my look of the day; I am wearing wet look skinny jeans from ASOS, a t-shirt from Zoë Karssen via ASOS, a furry jacket from Storets, pistol boots from Sacha, vintage Chanel bag, H&M hat and a ring from Beginningboutique.
Today was my first day of my internship at Addy van den Krommenacker, very exciting! I am still very proud to be part of the team behind such a talented and most of all very friendly designer.

Stuff I bought: Versace for H & M, D & G and faux animal skin

When it came to the Versace for H & M collection, I read the fashion blogosphere warnings of stampedes and long queues with trepidation. As a girl who values [and really needs] her beauty sleep I refused to get up at the advised 4 am start last Wednesday on the opening day. Needless to say, I was casually passing by H & M on Sunday, and couldn't suppress a moment of curiosity. Low and behold there were indeed a few Versace items left on the rack. "Totes amaze!" quothed I, hastily checking the garment sizes as my boyfriend looked on with a mixture of disinterest and judgement. He'd never seen me move so fast.

"I don't get it", he said as I, pupils dilated and heartbeat racing, flicked past the numerous pink fringe dresses that were clearly the runt of the collection. I ended up purrrrr-chasing a divine draped red dress that I had my eye on from the start but had given up hope of acquiring. A very Grecian drape meets slightly superhero-esque cape, with studs on the shoulder. The stretch jersey fabric gleefully betrayed its size EU 32 [UK 4], and, thankfully, it fit like a dream. Oh, and the gorgeous turquoise leopard-print garment bag and velvet hanger were the icing on the sartorial cake. I EXCITE. Just in time for the Christmas party season!

In other hedonistic news, I interrupted my furtive Christmas shopping with a present[s] for myself. Behold Tory Burch paraphernalia. Above: faux reptilian glossy shape shifter that works as a clutch or two different side bag configurations [note different places to attach strap]. Below, my new wallet and makeup bag. Yes, I may have a slight inclination for animal skin prints!

Above: I received word of a Dolce and Gabbana sample sale. Having heard the news that their diffusion line D & G was being closed down, I thought that this was justification enough to attend. Once again, news that was great for my wardrobe but not my wallet. Behold, more animal print. Sadly, no fitting was allowed [major sad face] so I avoided any complication and went with simple garments.

Hong Kong yields great bargain no-brand gems if one looks carefully [a task that I happily take upon myself. Fashion martyr, moi?] Above: a jacket by Korean fashion "house" 'The M and M' [in no way affiliated with the rapper or candy] is my current fav, perfect for the faux-winter that Hong Kong pathetically teases us with.

Above, magpie tendencies quickly satiated. Imagine my surprise when I notice Rachel Zoe, Hollywood stylist extraordinaire, wearing a very similar leopard ring. It turns out, my trinket was 'inspired' by the Panthere de Cartier Ring. The original is 18k yellow gold, Peridot (eyes), Onyx (nose) and Black Laquer (spots) and it's priced around USD $14,600. Nice.

It is starting to get really cold, when we took this photo it was literally freezing.. That's why I love to wear fake fur these days, to keep me a bit warmer. This fake fur jacket is from Storets, they have got a awesome collection of fake fur jackets.
The bag is from VJ-style, the dress is from Love, the hat is from H&M, the ring is from Rocknrose and the boots are from Zara.

Versace for H&M buys

This morning I went online and I luckily got a hold on my two favourite pieces from the Versace x H&M collection; the leather jacket and the studded skirt. Did you manage to get some pieces from the collection?

Addy van den Krommenacker

I couldn't be more happier as I got some great news yesterday, namely that I can intern at Addy van den Krommenacker! I am so honored as he is definitely one of the best designers from the Netherlands and one of my all time favourites! He makes the most wonderful glamorous red carpet dresses in the most amazing fabrics and color palettes. He has dressed many international stars like Courtney Love, Malika Sherawat and Carly Steel. The three designs on the image above are my favourites from his Roma Altamoda 2011 collection. Go see for yourself and check out his website for more images of his amazing collections, here!
