My mom knows for almost two decades about my clothing fetish, almost as long as my girlfriend. My girlfriend didn’t, and still doesn’t, want to know when I order something from the women’s department,, so I used her address for years. Every time she received a package for me, we opened it. Most of the times she liked the items I ordered in. She often says to me: ‘Íf this makes you happy, you have my blessing to pursue it, but I rather see you in men’s clothes. So most of the occasions I visit her, I go as my regular me and sometimes I go as Francesca. The last time I visited her as Francesca was not so long ago. On that day we went shopping Continue reading →
I have more hobbies than just to look for the next fabulous piece of clothing that could complement my body (and in what size to order!?). One of those hobbies is woodworking. Over the years I designed and carried out different kind of cabinets and tables. I also take on DIY jobs. Sometimes I do a combination of DIY and woodworking, like my last project.
Because this is the last week of my vacation at home, I have the time to take down the roof above our front door. The roof hasn’t been Continue reading →
While the world is still crazy, I’m keeping myself occupied with little things like, in what size should I order the dresses I fell in love with at The Outnet (discount designer fashion outlet). This is by the way one of the places to be, when you care more about your style then for fashion.
For the ones who stumbled upon this post and visit my blog for the first time: I’m a sucker for prints. Especially prints on dresses.This time I fell in love with two dresses from Just Cavalli Continue reading →
Yeah I know I am pretty shallow for just posting clothing stuff, so you might get inspired. At least I don’t do anyone harm by it, in big contrast to those bombers lately. WHAT THE FU*** IS THAT ALL ABOUT? What is the purpose of killing innocent people? Just because not everyone has the same religion. You must have a pretty Continue reading →
So you know: all of the items aren’t available anymore, because it is all older or old stuff. I found the jacket last year in the lovely second hand store Kat & Co, in a city near Amsterdam (Haarlem). Usually I don’t buy my stuff in a second hand store. I am more a giver haha. Mainly because I like new and fresh things and they only have one size of each item. But this jacket was placed on a doll in the store window and I couldn’t resist to go in and check the size of it. As you can see it fits perfectly!
The string bodysuit, the bra and tights I found in my fav Wolford shop, also in Haarlem (last year). The skirt is about 15 years old and is from Corel Amsterdam. And the shoes are from L.K. Bennett (about 6 years ago). Still one of my fav pair of booties! Continue reading →
Don’t you sometimes see something really beautiful and you desperately want to have it, but price wise it’s way out of your league? That happened to me two years ago when I saw these statement earrings. For the preparation of this post, I visited the site of degrisogono.com again and found out they are probably one of their signature earrings. Today they come in two types. The ones in pink gold Continue reading →
Yeah I must admit I have enough dresses to slip into; each week in another dress. Nevertheless I couldn’t resist buying this amazing sheath dress from the latest collection of Guess. It has a lovely print, it is made of a dreamy softness and fluid fabric, it has a body hugging cut and it is as good as wrinkle proof.
I hope you all had a wonderful start in this brand new year! And that your plans or dreams for 2016 are even better. May they all come true!
I don’t have many dreams (left), but my numero UNO dream is a biggie: start my own clothing label for women! I strongly believe that it helps a lot when you put it out into the universe. So here it comes!
The designs would be with a similar cut as you can see throughout my blog: sometimes with a flared skirt, sometimes Continue reading →
How was this year so far for you? Oh wait! It’s almost gone!
For me it was quite a year, with ups and downs.
A major up was my blooming cooperation with House of Byfield (HOB), especially with the founder and head designer Carmichael Byfield. It looks like the cooperation could be growing into a full blossom next year. Another up was that I still had enough inspiration to quite some posts on my blog. It makes me feel alive to work on these posts, especially to put the looks together, to model for the camera and to pick out the most striking poses. Also the awesome comments once a post is posted (still not so much on my blog, but on Lookbook.nu I have 439 fans right now) keeping me going. I have several looks to work on for next year, so stay tuned! Continue reading →
Judging by the title you would expect I have some kind of collaboration with her …. I wish!
In this post I’ll show you my latest purchase from the Karen Millen collection. I’ve bought it on November 15th of this year in the shop at the P.C. Hooftstraat in Amsterdam. In the Karen Millen shops are always friendly people who want to help you in any way they can.
When I prepared this post it suddenly hit me: over a period of four years, I’ve collected already twelve dresses (on a total of about 60 dresses) from this label. Not to brag about it or anything, but just for understanding how fun the dresses from Karen Millen are, not only to look at, but also to wear.
You have to understand that Karen Millen is a one-stop-shop. It has all sorts of clothing in Continue reading →
