This post is going to show you how difficult styling is. I am often told off for saying this, but really, I am not a good stylist. I know because I have been shopping with a real one. The difference is significant and that difference will be clear when you have read this post.
Trying to style new outfits means taking pictures of every attempt with your smartphone in bad light. Which is what you are about to see: crappy pictures of me. But at the top of a blogpost should always be an attractive photo, so this is the one. The only one. View Post
This sequined T-shirt was displayed in the window of the Essentiel shop (Belgian brand). That shop is located right between my house and the centre of town. Whenever I go to town, which is often, I pass it. It is clearly there to test my willpower. I kid myself I was only taking a picture of this shirt to send to Lisa (The Sequinist) to drool over. Of course it was necessary to go inside and take a closer look at the shirt. You can fill in the rest. View Post
The reason I bought these green leggings with side stripe was their comfort and the great quality. I figured I could use them a lot. As it turned out, styling them was not that easy. Nevertheless I managed to create 4 outfits (quite unique for me) with the outfit above being my favourite. I prefer to wear the kimono jacket open. It looks and feels like silk, but it is not. It is viscose and cupro (never heard of cupro before). Bought it at Levv in Haarlem, which has a very skilful and lovely owner to help you. View Post
An orange leather pencil skirt is something out of the ordinary. I like that. The colour orange, which I like as well, made me pull the item from the rack and I was amazed how well it fit me. Usually these skirts have room for hips, which are not on my body. This thing was just straight. The shop provided the very comfortable black shirt to go with it. As I was wearing the orange necklace that day, adding it to this outfit was rather obvious. The peeptoe shoes are for the modern look although I still prefer normal pumps. View Post
Contemporary, timeless and comfortable high heeled shoes. Where do you find them? Usually you can only have one of these three. Which is what Jolanda van Eijk experienced when her feet started hurting. As she couldn’t find comfortable shoes that looked cool, she decided to learn everything there was to learn about shoe making (three years training, mind you). After which she created the perfect last and the perfect heel, took a very deep breath and started her own company: EIJK shoes. View Post
