New UGG Boots

I’ve received couple months ago a pair of UGG boots. So, I was really looking for the perfect weather to put these boots to the test, but this year we, in the Netherlands, are a having a very sloppy winter. I’m not saying I’m big fan of the winter season, but a little bit of snow can’t do any harm. But hey, last year we had such a bad winter. So, I should be happy and not complain.

Now lets get back to my new UGG boots. I have to admit the boots are really comfortable and are made with water resistent materials. I’ve worn them a couple of times and now I do understand why some girls are obsessed with UGG boots. It’s like you’re walking on two warm pillows. It’s heavenly awesome.

As soon as the first snowflakes start to fall, I will report back to you guys about how the UGG boots did in a real winter weather.

UGG Benelux, thank you for the lovely gift.

Farfetch Christmas Hangout with Viviana Magalhaes

I know you guys have been waiting for a link to follow the hangout live. I had no chance to send a link. It happend so fast. For those who have missed the first hangout of Farfetch, here is the video of the hangout. The items featured in the hangout are so amazing. A strapless black dress of Viktor & Rolf (lookalike) was used for the styling, combined with an Alexander McQueen cape (lookalike). And just take a look at the Comme Des Garçons coat, that was used to finish the look of the male model. Isn’t it marvelous?

Can’t wait for the next hangout! It was such a rush, especially when I had to ask my question.

I love the styling, very sophisticated! Great job, Viviana Magalhaes!

Neil Barrett Sweater, Lucky Me!

Last month, I was in Rotterdam doing what I love the most, shopping. I visited my favourite stores, but I didn’t find anything interesting. But then I got this amazing tip. A bird (girlfriend) told me about this awesome temporary high-end outlet store. She must have been send from heaven, because the Neil Barrett sweater that I’m wearing in this look was waiting for me. It was the last one and it was 70% off. I was hesitating about buying the sweater, but after trying it on. I was sold. It fit me perfectly. Another reason for buying the sweater was the price. You guys know how expensive Neil Barrett is, right? So, I guess I was lucky that day!

Wool Week 2013 Expo

Here is my post about the Wool Week Expo, just like I promised yesterday.

Wool Week is an initiative of The Campaign for Wool Ltd, which has the mission to convince consumers that opting for wool as opposed to synthetics in fashion and lifestyle will make a positive contribution the environmental sustainability around the world.

Yesterday, the Wool Week was officially kicked off with an exhibition at the Cromhouthuizen in Amsterdam showcasing wool pieces of established names in fashion. The exhibition is divided into five characteristic of wool: nature, structure, breathe, strength  and elastic. The exhibition is very divers, there is even a very soft (looking) woollen chair. My favourite pieces are the Avelon Circumscription and Lanvin’s all black look #18 men’s AW 2013-14 collection. And I have to admit that JANTAMINIAU’s L’image Tranquille spring/summer 2013 is in my opinion one of the most exquisite pieces of the exhibition. I love the silhouette.

The exhibition is a must-see and will be open for the public until Sunday 3 November.

Toshy Graffiti Art Exhibition

During the Amsterdam Dance Event (ADE) week I got invited by the street Artist Maarten Walraven (Toshy) to visit one of his exhibition.

Toshy is a Dutch contemporary artist, whose work is inspired by street graffiti. He started to do street graffiti in the 80′s. His work was admired by many people. At a young age, 16 to be exact, he got his first media exposure. After getting his degree he started his own advertising agency. In 2012 he decided to mix his graffiti skills with his photography, personal background and typography.

During the exhibition I’ve learned that Toshy is not only an artist, but also a great story teller. Each work has a story. I’m a big fan of contemporary art myself. So, I took me time to understand each of his creation.

The night ended with a performance by Dj Don Diablo, which was part of ADE.

The shawl brand based in Amsterdam called POM has collaborated with Dance4Life to support the fight against AIDS. POM has designed two shawl from which the proceeds will go to Dance4Life. This is such a good cause. So, when I got invited by my (ex) intern coach to the event, I promised myself to pass by. Even if it is for just a couple of minutes. During the event I caught up with my blogger friend Cyliaaaa. We talked about her new exciting business and I met her photographer.

The motto of POM is ‘Choose to be seen and express yourself’. POM is calling out to all women to support the fight against AIDS by buying one of the shawls.

Minju Kim Collection For H&M

Listen up girls! This is a last minute update! Minju Kim, the winner of the H&M Design Award, has created an exquisite collection. Minju has her own way to design clothing. Her designs are about turning characters into clothing. The collection she made for H&M brings the dream world of Manga to life by using unique silhouettes and clever fabric combinations.

Too bad that collection is only for women. I really like the knitted sweater. I wouldn’t mind wearing a lookalike sweater for men.

The exclusive collection will be available tomorrow only in selected H&M stores and online.

Ps: If you’re in The Netherlands and you’re interested the collection, you should visit the Dam Square H&M store later on today.
