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!
One of my first looks from New York Fashion Week. Super casual, but considering it was at least minus 10 that day – feeling like minus 22 – it was the best I decision ever to go this casual! I love the mix of the oversized parka and trainers, and the sequin Chanel bag. It would have been even better if I had been wearing a pair of heels, preferably stilettos, but I’m definitely not that crazy to do that when it’s this cold…
Earlier this week, in between shows, presentations, and fancy press drinks, I experienced one moment of ultimate calmness… Interesting enough this was at one of the most popular high-street stores we know. The store which has Cara as its godmother, Kate Foley as style insider, and millions of girls as their street style models. However, next to their usual shopping experience – filled with latest trends and every season a really cool runway collection – they offer a quiet section, filled with as many beautiful clothes as you want, a fresh bottle of water, and happy smiling people: the Topshop personal shopping space.
The first and the last time – as far as I can remember – that I wore green was when I was pregnant with James, we just moved to London, and we were living in our first apartment in the City – the most boring part to live in. My green jacket looked so amazing, but somehow, until now, I’ve been hesitant buying pieces in green. It’s really hard to find just that right shade, and then of course, the design of the piece itself.
