Autumn colored outfit(s)

This gallery contains 12 photos.

Autumn is in the air! Lot’s of rain is heading our way, temperature is still nice and now and then the sun is un-hiding ;-). For me, this is the right moment to change my wardrobe view 180 degrees and prepare for the next season. I’m loving it!

At this moment I really appreciate the red and maroon colored pieces. It almost matches every skin type (at least if you combine it with the right color tone for your skin type) and, most important, it’s trending FW15/16!

Underneath I’ve selected a few items that should complete my autumn wardrobe for now. My key item should be the stunning red Filling Pieces sneakers!

H&M Premium Collection

Never thought I would say this, but I have to be honest on this one: the Premium Collection by H&M is really nice! Good quality materials used, extremely good fit and, most important, great designs! Hereunder I’ve posted a few pieces of their latest Premium Collection. In my opinion with this collection they’ve made an excellent step in upgrading their collection!H&MPC_WoolHat_brownH&MPC_LeatherBelt_beige

Faux fur rules!

Recently I visited a vintage party. I think buying (and trading) vintage is a great thing to do and I really appreciate it when people make an effort to consider the environment while updating their wardrobe. Full of excitement about what kind of spectacular items I was about to discover today I went to the party. Unfortunately I was soon to discover that this party wasn’t that much fun at all. About half of the vintage collection that was presented was made of real fur! If there’s something that I just can’t understand, it is why people should buy real fur. When I confronted the owner of the fur items with my point of view he tried to convince me that it isn’t that much of a problem to wear real fur and that the negativity that’s associated with wearing it is much exagerated since most people wear real leather without a breeze. With that superficial non-explanation he convinced me to leave right a way, this just wasn’t my ‘cup of tea’.

So here I am, wearing my nice FAUX fur gilet! And I’m proud of it!

Above I combined the faux fur gilet (H&M) with a white turtleneck (Drykorn), a jeans skirt (Diesel) and fringe ankle boots (Isabel Marant). I completed my outfit with a beaded necklace and a bracelet with ‘a hint of orange’.

 

Animal-licious prints!

What is it about animal prints? Either you love them, or you hate them. At least that’s what I’ve been experiencing in everyday life. I’ve been loving (and wearing!) these fine prints since ever. But every once in a while someone shows special interest in an item that’s been in my wardrobe for a long time. And that’s the moment that I know animal prints are seriously hot!

The jacquard leopard printed coat I’m wearing below is one of those items. I’m wearing it as a coat during spring and autumn season and sometimes as a blazer during winter. Since I’m going to the playground with my boys today I’m wearing it with skinny jeans and a petrol (I just love the petrol-hype this season!) turtleneck.

The blazer is a vintage one from H&M, as well as the boots, the skinny jeans are from J Brand and the turtleneck is from Drykorn.

Guess what! It’s Friday!

And that means we have to ‘worry’ about Friday Night: tonight I’m having drinks with the girls! I must admit, there are worse things to worry about, but still…

While deciding about what I feel like wearing tonight I have a few details which I have to consider before letting my mind run wild. First of all the weather conditions, second the type of event, third who will be joining me and fourth, and most important, how do I feel!

Thinking about tonight I’ve chosen the following items to complete my outfit with.

For this outfit I’ve combined a ByDanie sweater with a black and army green skirt from Isabel Marant and black thights. The black ankle booties and the faux fur jacket are from H&M and the bracelet is a design from Saint Laurent. Since I won’t be carrying a lot tonight I will take a clutch bag from D&G.

Tartan it is!

I didn’t think they would ever be coming back soon… But the grunge look has definitely landed! I think the last tartan I’ve seen was back in the ninetees, but this winter season you really can’t ignore this fashion hype. But why should you? It surely is a winter season pattern. Especially in the combination deep red/black, which is originally used.

Let’s take a look at some nice pieces combined in an outfit.

Underneath the Karl Lagerfeld leather & wool biker jacket with a white bow tie blouse and a black and denim knee long skirt (both H&M), combined with black stiletto booties by Sam Edelman and you are ready to go!

Below a combination with a grunge girl Bankfashion sweater with a faux leather skirt from H&M and, ofcourse, a pair of Jimmy Choo short black biker boots. Wear it with black 20 denier tights and charm bracelet like this one from Saint Laurent and your grunge look is complete!

Rainy days, suitable outfits

20131011_2

At 7 in the morning it was raining. During lunch, still raining. And it won’t be any different this afternoon.

What to wear on a day like this!? Layared clothing will do the trick of course. Today I chose for a pair of grey thick tights combined with a black and white silk dress from H&M and, of course, a vest. A fake fur one. A pair of grey, ankle booties should keep my feet from getting wet during my runs to and from my car and back into other dry area’s. I hope my booties will behave as I expect them to. A big leopard Dolce & Gabbana shopper should keep my stuff safe & dry today.

Almost weekend! Enjoy yours!

Xx, VON
