Can we make this the last time I look frozen on my photos for this winter? Can we try to make it feel more like Spring, and less like Ice Age 5? Can we just pretend Spring is really on its way, starting with a mild Paris Fashion Week, and then I take you with me to New York where you will flourish? Spring, I think you and I can talk. I’m flying to Paris tomorrow, so we’ll have plenty of time to do so…
Whenever it’s Milan Fashion Week and I see the street style shots passing by, together with some amazing show coverage, I regret not being there. This season again; I can’t stop saying how amazing it looks, everything on any feed I come across. So I had to conclude: next season I’m going to be there! And in that spirit I put some Milano-inspired looks together to shoot yesterday – unfortunately when Jeff and I just set foot outside, it started to snow again. Nonetheless, two perfect Milano looks, which I would both wear for sure, if it wasn’t snowing. Especially this one from today…
You might be wondering if I match my wardrobe with my hair, or my hair with my wardrobe… To be honest, I’m not sure about the rational behind it, but what I do know is that I wanted to color my hair gray for a long time. And one day, my colorist just made it happen, in-between the shows, not having to spend hours at the salon, and the result even better than I’d ever dream of! Still loving it.
On potentially the most beautiful winter morning last week, I stole this super cute teddy coat from my NYFW roomie Sabrina – as well as her New York beanie – to wear to the Tommy Hilfiger show. That’s what we do.
VERY thankful for the photographers shooting outside Victoria Beckham’s show during NYFW, on one of the coldest mornings of that week. It might have been minus 18, but it felt way colder, especially with those icy winds blowing through the Wall Street area. But the hot tea upon arrival at the show, and her beautiful collection made it all worth it!
The wait is almost over, one more sleep and on the 26th Amsterdam can proudly say they have a Topshop! Somehow I’m thinking “why did this take so long?” I mean, we Dutch girls can be pretty fashion forward, we have a Vogue magazine that creates some of the world’s best editorials, and we travel fashion month to see our favorite designers. Oh and we also just LOVE fashion. Anyhow, even though I’m not personally there to celebrate this festive milestone with all of you – I wish so terribly much I was – you guys have to make sure you’re heading there as soon as you can, and report back to me how much you love the store!
Another big plus about having our own Topshop, you’ve probably noticed I’ve been wearing quite some cool Topshop pieces recently, but some weren’t online available – sorry, still talking to my Dutch girls. Now, when this is the case, you can hop on the train and pay a little visit to beautiful Amsterdam to raid the new store!
