Hello again!

Hi there!
Long time no see! I have been away for about 6 months... That is a looooong time. In blogging-terms I do not exist anymore. I doubted quite for some time if I still wanted to be a blogger. Bloggers are sometimes seen as greedy girls with a sick obsession of clothes, to own them, to get them for free, to get the newest things first. I do like clothes, I do like to know what's going on in the fashion world. I do have some friends working in the fashion industry. But I do not want to be seen as greedy. That made me doubt the whole blogging thing. Now I realized I'm just not that person that a lot of people think bloggers are. I'm just a girl with a job in healthcare; earning my own money, happen to like clothes and fashion and weird wearable objects. And I love expressing myself through how I look. I like to shock some of my colleagues ones in a while when I arrive in the morning. I like to combine things that do not seem to match at first. That's why I started blogging in the first place. That's why my blog felt as my own weird little fashionable place. Where I could express myself better online than that I do offline (white uniform during the weekdays...). So for now I say: I'm back! I would like to share with you whatever things I like and wear. 
To come back to the above photo; the drawing is me. The very talented Sella Molenaar made a drawing of me at the Isabel Marant for H&M event the day before it went on sale. (Yes, no blogging but still a fashion lover, so ahead in line!) She made it only in 5 minutes! I was amazed by the way it looks really like me! Thanks Stella, love your work!

Today is the day I turned 30. Today is the day my twenties are over. Twenties were great for blogging, I hope in my thirties the blogging will continue this way. 
Thanks to the people who read my blogposts and believe in me! I hope you continue to believe in me in my thirties. 
Thanks to the people who came to my exhibition opening last friday at the Fashion Hotel! And thanks to the people who want to buy a photo!
If you want to see the exhibition, you can go (almost) any time of the day to the Fashion hotel Amsterdam to see it, and if you want to buy one of the photos; just send me an email.

'Staring is Caring' Supertrash skirt and Minkpink cardigan from NR9

Cardigan: Minkpink by NR9
Shirt: H&M
Boots: Zara
Backpack: Episode
Sunglasses and scarf: Queensday market

One of the last days of May I went to the release party of the 'Staring is Caring' skirt designed by Supertrash designer Olcay Gulsen in collaboration with Stop Aids Now. I love the fact you can buy a fashionable (and comfortable!) piece and all of the profit goes to a project for woman with HIV in Godino in Ethiopia. 
Together with tv personality Tess Milne and Anna Nooshin of the website NSMBL, Olcay launched the project to raise money for woman to start their own business. The skirt you can buy at the website of Supertrash or in a Supertrash store in the Netherlands or Belgium for only 29,95 euros! 

In the above pictures I'm wearing the skirt in my own way. For me the skirt is perfect to wear to a festival! The cardigan I'm wearing is from one of my favourite new shops in Amsterdam: NR9 at Herenstraat 18. They sell Dutch brands and international brands, very comfortable, very colourful, so very me! This Minkpink cardigan I will be wearing all summer long during chilly summer nights (and days)!

'All eyes on me' socks and 'say my name' necklace

Shirt and trousers: H&M
Socks: Monki
Necklace: Tatty Devine 

The insipration for this outfit is Michael Jackson. The patent leather shoes I found in London at Topshop, at the J.W. Anderson collection, and immediately reminded me of the King of Pop. What better way to combine the shoes with a high water pants and some literally 'all eyes on me' socks. The necklace was a gift of the boyfriend. It's from Tatty Devine, they have a really nice website where you can order online name necklaces, necklaces with animals and flowers and other prints, and wonder around for hours...

Smurf up plain jane

Jeans: MMM for H&M
Leather gloves, bag, shoes: H&M

I don't like to wear outfits with all jeans or all black or all white. But if the jeans shirt and pants have different colours and odd shapes I do like it. Although for me an outfit feels plain jane when only wearing jeans even in odd shapes, so a touch a smurf blue is very appropiate in my eyes. How do you pimp up plain jane outfits?

My fashion statements for today:
- I will keep my beanie on untill the temperatures are above 15°C.
- I will match my lipstick with my beanie.
- People should only wear designers' names on fashionable items when it's their name too or someone you are related too.

Oh My Dot and Square!

Clutch: New Look (similar here)
Jumper, legging, heels: H&M
Blouse: Zara
Skirt: thrifted, Iceberg
Oh my God! Pop art has introduced its way into fashion! The BAM's and TRASH's and pop art drawings fly around your ears. Since wintery temperatures didn't leave Holland yet I still wear some knits and wool jumpers now and then. I found this skirt at the second-hand market IJ-hallen a year ago, didn't know how to combine it then. Now I know! Print-on-print for me is the best way to show off the different prints. It's the best way to hypnotize people I guess. 

Did you ever wonder why the pop art drawings with skin made off little red squares look so real and appealing? I did. How come such geometrical drawings can appear human? When you read about pop art and Roy Lichtenstein, you can find that pop art was a way of making fun of mass consumption. The purpose was to emphasize the banality of any given mass culture. Now my question; how come mass consumption uses drawings on their products that makes fun of their own mass consumption? I think it's a genius way of self-deprecating!
