Foodstagram & Co.

The last couple of days my Instagram turned into a mini food blog. But that's somehow inevitable with all the fresh fruit and summer salads around.

Sale finds: Sandro and Proenza Schouler

Two T-shirts, two great finds in the sale: tie-dye shirt by Proenza Schouler (via Farfetch) and black "Etoile" shirt by Sandro (sold out online, but found in the boutique).

Wanted: Isabel Marant Cleane Boots

As I said earlier, I am very sad I missed Isabel Marant's Cleane boots when they were still in stores. You see, it's not always love at first sight - sometimes it takes a while. ;) Now they're sold out, but I thought I have to give it a try. Maybe you know somebody who knows somebody ... Contact me if you have a pair that you'd like to sell. I'm wearing size 38.

Some wishes for colder days

Of course with the current heatwave it is much too early to think about an autumn wardrobe update – however, with the new collections arriving in the stores I cannot avoid a side glance at what is to come. And I think there are some new staples my wardrobe is in need of: a pair of leather-denim-mixed jeans (I have been eyeing R13's Chaps for a while), a cool check shirt that is not stolen from my boyfriend (I love this one with leather elements by Iro), a high-quality basic shirt (T by Alexander Wang would be good), bordeaux-coloured high-heeled ankle boots (sadly I missed Isabel Marant's Cleane leo boots! ... but Saint Laurent makes a nice alternative option), a classic, grown-up bag (this bowling bag comes from Saint Laurent, too) - and you can also use a new pair of sunglasses to refresh your look.

Love: Vanities bracelets


Have you heard of the brand Vanities? Thomas Franc and Vincent Ribat founded it in 2009 and their bracelets, hand-carved bone skulls on fabric strips, made the brand rapidly popular in the fashion world. Colette sometimes has them in stock (currently there are some on sale). As you might know I love skull bracelets (you can see my other ones here, here and here) and every thing that looks like it was collected on travels around the world – so obviously I fell in love with the Vanities designs at once. The idea is actually pretty simple, so if you know how to carve a skull and have a piece of fabric you can just make them yourself. ;)

The shirtdress

I love it when a shirt is big enough so you can wear it tucked into your jeans but also over a skirt so it kind of looks like a dress – like this Comme des Garcons Men's shirt that I found in a vintage shop. (Sorry, for the bad photo quality, it's a phone snapshot).

Dreaming of ...



Yes, I've only just come back from my holiday – but my mind keeps drifting off towards Southern France and a house in the country ...

High summer

Just a quick Hello from the garden! I am wearing my good old vintage Levi's, vintage belt, a top by mbyM and a lot of bracelets (the necklace is my sister's). I love the double-armcandy-shot with my sister! Enjoy the sun!

Sale bargain

I love my turquoise Yves Saint Laurent "Arty ring" (it was still Yves Saint Laurent when I bought it – and it was sold out almost everywhere), my initial doubts wether it might merely be a temporary trend piece ended in smoke. It's a modern classic! And, believe it or not, you can currently get it for 50%/60% off in the Net-a-Porter sale. In red, turquoise, and blue. Hurry hurry.

The white lace dress


As I've said before my summer uniform usually consits of (denim) shorts and a shirt but I've been thinking about adding a white mini-dress to my wardrobe. Again and again I come across very tempting streetstyle photos - I've posted some images earlier this year – and you can find the matching dresses everywhere from Asos to Net-a-Porter. I can easily imagine wearing these dresses on holiday - but in the city? ...

First week of July

Summer is here! Finally! I spent the first week of July doing summery things like making fruit smoothies, eating fruit salad, cherries and strawberries, buying a new bike (not the one on the photo, sadly but mine's also quite nice), running and sitting outside in the sun and wearing shorts almost every day! Yay!

More in my shop!

Since I still don't have a proper shoe cabinet I cleared out parts of my collection to make room. You can find a lot of shoes and other items in my shop. Here you go!
