Saint Laurent

Feeling Black & White

I prefer a colourful outfit most of the time (being ‘blessed’ with blond hair in combination with quite pale skin) to lighten up my daily wear. But once in a while I wake up feeling like a black & white outfit will make my day. And by black & white I really mean black & white! Underneath I’ll show you my outfit for today, feeling black & white for sure!

I’ve combined a silk printed blouse (Isabel Marant pour H&M) with a black leather skirt (Marc O’Polo), black & white python ankle boots (Saint Laurant) and a two tone hand bag (DKNY).

Daily Rock

How to combine a little bit of Rock in your daily outfit? Since Rock ‘n Roll in fashion land is all over the place we are definitely challenged to introduce a hint (or just a lot!) in our daily outfits. Ofcourse, you can go all the way and make it totally rock ‘n roll (or, for the hardcore fashionista’s, grunge to the max). But sometimes it’s more wearable to add some pieces to your personal style. And guess what I did! Get the vibe and try to add some rock ‘n roll to your own style!

I combined a ByDanie black Rock ‘n Roll sweater with a Zadig & Voltaire tie dye jeans, black Jimmy Choo biker boots and a Saint Laurent inspired necklace from Zara.

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!

Mexx and Candy

GREAT_NEWS_Candy_Dulfer_main

Wow! Mexx and Candy have done good!

Yesterday the collection for Mexx by Candy Dulfer has been launched. I must say, it’s nothing to be ashamed of Candy! Very well done! There’s a good mix of materials and colours in the collection and you can perfectly mix and match between the items to create your own style for the right occasion.

 

 

 

I personally love the boxy faux leather top with python print. Combine the top with the dragon red leather optic legging pants and the amazing two-toned faux fur vest with faux leather sleeves for a complete Rock & Roll look! Although bare feet would be very comfortable wearing this warm (and sticky) fake fur outfit a pair of Saint Laurent Paris two-tone python ankle boots would certainly complete your outfit…
