Paris Fashion Week day #1

See here, Paris Fashion Week day 1. A very hot, crazy and exciting day involving one-hour bike rides from east to west Paris running, getting my picture taken a lot, visiting three shows and having fun along the way.

What are you looking at?

The troops of models at A.F. Vandevorst came marching down the runway in creations that would best be described as military meets tribal meets rock and roll.
 Interesting and incredibly detailed, everything was right on from the location to the music and the model's powerful walks.

Didn't get to take great shots here, but especially these white and dark grey-ish items were my favorite. Funny how the crowd was different here, a bit more like LFW.

Barbara Bui show pics 8, 14, 16, 18
An on trend collection with mustard yellow, black and cream as a fresh color palette. There were subtle sportswear references, knits and - of course - leather and fringed pieces. Topped off with a great model selection as well, with Dutch girls Patricia van der Vliet (7) and Bette Franke (16) and gorgeous Anna Selezneva (14) and super chic location; the Ritz hotel.

Philly We Loved You!!


These photos are just of Eastern State Penitentiary, but enjoy the adventurous tales of our whole trip to Philly:)

Our time in Philadelphia was too brief, but we managed to have an awesome time...despite the crappy weather.  We arrived Friday afternoon and settled into our hotel for a couple of hours and then skitted off to south Philadelphia to head to a cute vintage shop and then we headed to a bar for drinks.  While there I drunkenly watched Slap Shot for about an hour and just laughed.  Then we went to Franklin Fountain per Veronika's suggestion before meeting up with her and her husband at a cool cantina for more drinks, food and chit-chatting.  It was pouring rain and just crazy trying to drive around there, but in the end it was a great first night in Philadelphia. 


On the day of Riot Fest we had to kill a few hours before the show, so we thought, "why not visit Eastern State Penitentiary?"  I am obsessed with Ghost Hunters and they've visited that place twice before, so it made perfect sense for me to go over there and experience some of (if any) the super natural.  Sadly, the only thing I came away with was a somber empathic feeling.  It was quite depressing, but the building itself was very beautiful (for a prison anyways).  Lots of windows along corridors, a beautiful synagogue and the fortress wall was made of glistening stones.


Our next stop was Riot Fest.  Zach and I actually got reacquainted at a show (nearly 9 years ago) so we have always had a common bond over musical taste.  Each year we try to fit in a few concerts and this year we got lucky and we were able to see about 5 great punk/hardcore bands all at once!!! I'll do a special mixtape post later this week and share some music with you all.


And that's that!  It was a terrific trip which would've been even better if it was longer.


this weeks shopping

I bought some magazines at the airport when flying back to Europe; the French Vogue, Vanity Fair, Allure and New York magazine. Really can't live without these!

Bought the Prada infusion d'iris eau de parfum at the Bijenkorf's "drie dwazen dagen" today (since it's on special discount today only...swoon..) I truly adore this scent but I don't think its for everyone, I would describe the scent as a powdery floral.

I was lucky enough to come home to 3 packages, one of which a big box from Lucette!! One of the goodies inside were these open toe brogues made out of leather and suede.. Seriously, these are genius and have a beautiful fit, they are both perfect for hipster as well as very tailored looks with and without socks, I can't believe I didn't think of open toe brogues before!!

Fashion Week packing

A little late night footage capturing the content of my suitcase. Fashion Week turned out to take place in some heat wave - and my leather and knit centered looks were suddenly out the window. Anyway, Paris has been great so far! I can't wait to show you all the pics (including a run in with Rachel Zoe and some new shoes) but it's 1.30 right now so I need a serious beauty sleep ;)

Travel/Airplane Outfit

 photo's taken by Robert Morris

I'm wearing; H&M trend jumper, H&M white tank top and sweatpants, Zara shoes, Rebecca Minkoff woven flame bag, La Dama faux fox tail.

Taken on a Brooklyn Rooftop (at the apartment I was staying while being in NY) just before going to the airport.

This is actually my traveling/airplane outfit (with my new Rebecca Minkoff bag) The sweatpants for comfort and the jumper for layering, I always carry an extra cardigan and socks and make sure I wear easy shoes.. Further more I kind of always wear cotton now I think of it :) plus I won't enter a plane without lip balm and Vitamin water!!

OUTFITS | Wearing Pajama Pants


The shorts that I'm wearing are actually a pair of jersey pajama pants that I've had since I was 14. I rolled them all the way up to transform them into a pair of shorts a la Alexander Wang resort 2012. The sweater from Uniqlo is also one of my favorite and most comfortable pieces. In contrast with all this comfyness, lazyness and practicality I added some chunky golden jewelry; necklace from Nelly, bracelets are thrifted.

Rolled up, zipped down

It's been waaay too long since I've worn these burgundy skinnies. They were somewhere in the back of my mind (and my closet) and magically appeared last week. Perfect to pair with cream or white now that we sort of have summer back, but really anything goes with this color.
