PURPLE LOVE WITH IENKI IENKI

I love Balenciaga A LOT lately, but going all out in one brand is not my thing, so I tried to recreate my favorite Fall look… One of the best things Balenciage EVER did – in my opinion – is bringing these sock boots to the market. Not anything new, they’ve been around, but these have just the right amount of edge to be up my street! I’ve been wearing them a lot, and they are in fact quite comfortable. You don’t believe me? Of course, they’re “high”, and in more than one way (you really don’t have to wear tights when you wear these) but when a shoe has a certain level of quality, they usually come with a great deal comfort. Though, I’m not wearing them when I know I’m going to have to walk a lot. It’s for the slower days, taxi in, taxi out, meeting here, meeting there. ANYWAY, I recreated this Balanciaga-inspired look with a few of my favorite new winter pieces. Want to know which ones? Read more…

DOING SAFARI LIKE VOGUE IN THE 90S

90s Safari Vogue style by Charlotte Groeneveld from Thefashionguitar

Okay, I swapped the Birkenstocks for these “first of its kind” Gucci loafers – I didn’t even know Birkenstocks were in Vogue in the 90s – and I didn’t race with a leopard while wearing a leopard printed bathing suit – I did wear an animal printed bathing suit this weekend actually, yet I didn’t move an inch – but I did keep it khaki, belted oddly high in the waist, and took the sunset as my preset…

FEEL THE LOVE, AND OTHER THINGS ON MY MIND

It feels ages ago since we’ve talked and I’m sorry for that… It all started with a weekend of non-stop work & fun, my mother visiting – which is actually the most helpful situation right now, since we still didn’t find a new nanny – my kids getting their follow-up vaccinations – they did so good though – my own medication that changed, and of course, business as usual! There literally has been no time to sit down and process all of it, let alone write about it! Soooooo…. imagine how much there is going on in my mind, then x 1000 and plus having no idea where to start telling you the ins and outs. But I’m going to give it a try, starting with how much I LOVE this Valentino Pre-Fall 2017 dress. I mean, there’s never a moment I don’t enjoy wearing these kind of insane pieces, but there’s always moments that beat others. This was one of them. Though, the struggle – the never-ending one – of being able to walk in it, whilst wearing sneakers, was real! Very real…

IT’S A FLORAL STORY

At first sight this very much looks like one of those “dark romance” stories, but don’t let the late afternoon light fool you… Isn’t it amazing how the floral print pops against the dark background – which was basically just a perfect play of light at the time we shot this. Truth is, shooting during the summer is hard. Not only because it’s most of the time too warm to wear anything else than Dolce bustiers, or go outside of the AC at all, but also because the light is TERRIBLE to work with. There is almost no way around it; harsh shadowing on the face, shiny forehead, and over exposed backdrops… BUT, when you play it by the rules and stick to the “golden hours” – which as you can see doesn’t mean the light is yellow, it means the right time to get beautiful images – you get THE BEST shots!!

Needless to say, I’m not showing you this look only because I love how the photos turned out, what I truly wanted is to make my point about wearing floral silky suits, matching sneakers, and/or clashing bags. My love for colors and prints is growing bigger, and I’m here to show you that so much is possible, but it’s all about the right balance…
