up, up, and away


So it’s easter this weekend and you know what to say at the table, but I found something else to increase the fun this week. Though mind, this is only appropriate when having dinner with your luv because, trust me, you don’t want your father-in-law anywhere near this. Read more.

Bikini time! Yeah!


We holiday has been booked. Better even, I’m leaving in a week and a half. The pleasure already commences when I’m trying on bikinis beforehand. I don’t do such things online. I’d be mad. Why would I take away a fitting room visit? Duh. That lovely, unforgiving light that accentuates all my bodily curves. Just lovely. Read more.


Even though it was Maundy Thursday yesterday (does anyone know what that actually means?), this outfit is just simply perfect to start our weekends with. Sophie van der Stap sent it from Beijing where her sister currently lives who just gave birth to her third child. Read more.

Mystery cap

I first thought it was a suction cup-like thing. Our intern suggested putting in some cottons and attaching the suction thingy to a mirror. But no, our intern unraveled the mystery. Read more.


Mellow yellow are the words these days. Which is why we scoured New York, Milan, Paris, and Milan for the best looks with a touch of yellow. Read more.


Simone ROCHA

Rochas has chosen for pastel this spring. The soft tints make you crawl from your winter dip straight into summer. Flowery prints and glittery dresses are a must in your closet. With the funny mop shoes at Rochas’s runway, it’s easy to clean your house efficiently whilst looking very trendy. Must-have. Read more.



It’s spring and those with an Instagram account will surely have noticed. I only follow 156 people and I think about 80% of those people have posted a photo of a clear blue sky with pink blossoms. I also saw Coachella’s ferris wheel about 83 times last weekend, and every weekend there’s a picture of a bouquet of flowers, a selfie at the gym, and the number of ‘from where I stand’ is hard to keep track of.

Every time I speak to Hans van der Veen (agent of Daphne Deckers, Daphne Bunskoek, Quinty Trustfull, Anouk Smulders, Sergio Herman, and other great people), the sun comes up. Hans has been enjoying life to the fullest for quite some time now and has quite an extraordinarily good taste. A small sizzle went through our headquarters when his black book with favourite addresses rolled in. Read more.

Wink of gold

Spotted at Dries van Noten’s show, a bit of gold leaf on the eyelashes. And Blumarine had some intense metallics on the eyes. Gold is what’s happening. Intense, but with a well-bronzed skin easy to balance out. Read more.

Think Twiggy, Jean Shrimpton, and a bit of Emma Peel. Short A-line dresses, high boots, belts around your waist, and statement sunglasses. Your hair wavy, a good eyeliner, and you’re ready to go. Read more.


And there I strolled at the Cornelis Schuyt looking for a great look. And yes, I just so happened to bump into Monique. Ever cheerful, ever kind, and incredibly stylish. She was out and about with a friend on an inspiration trip for decorating a home. I think that sounds simply marvellous. Read more.

Here at our headquarters, we’re obsessed with the hair piece, or, ‘borrow hairs’ like our girlfriends from The Building Amsterdam tend to say. The one from Balmain’s our favourite and is so easy to clip onto your own hair. Read more.

- Les 4 Ombres de Chanel -


With Chanel’s new eyeshadow palette Les 4 Ombres, you can make four entirely different looks. The colours became intenser. Which you already noticed when Jet got an intense look with this beautiful palette or last week when I got a natural look. This week, May-Britt’s in la chaise de Chanel. Judith Neyens, makeup artist at Chanel, gave her a beautiful smoky eye. It always sounds like such a hassle, but check the clip and see how to get beautiful smoky eyes with Judith’s tips and Chanel’s eyeshadow palette within no-time. Read more.



This spring, Lanvin’s all about metallics. Shining and glittering outfits are what you need. You’ll definitely stand out but that’s okay. Tight dresses are alternated with long coats that need to be worn over the shoulders, and together with the long, classic tube skirt are both have-to-haves this spring. Big statement necklaces are back again so feel free and get noticed. Read more.
