GIVE IT TO ME!!!! Gosh…I ADORE this suit by Alexander McQueen… Pastels are so HOT this season… Unfortunately it is a bit above my budget for now….


My New Alexander Wang shoes

OK…. I have to tell you something…. I actually was not allowed to buy anything this whole month… BUT firstly I bought this in sale… and secondly online, so I figured it would be delivered in February, and…. in addition… be taken out of my account in February since I paid with my credit card… How could I have known that they were here so fast! Well actually I should have known since if you order with us you receive it the next day as well. But still I LOVE them….What do you think? Will show how I wear it soon….

24 Hours museum by Prada

Prada opened their 24 hours museum yesterday in Paris. The initiative was to continue their exploration of reciprocal influences in visual arts, cinema and theatre.The 24 hours museum was designed by Francesco Vezzoli together with AMO (Dutch Pride: Rem Koolhaas’ think tank). The museum is only open for 24 hours (hence the name) in Palais d’Iena.

The museum is divided in three sections, historic, contemporary and forgotten. Vezolli is creating a “non-existent museum” where he shows his personal tribute to the eternal allure of femininity. But you have to take a look for yourself to understand….

When I lived in Londen, Prada had a similar initiative with the Double Club which was a pop up club and was a tremendous success. Don’t forget to take a look on their website as well!

DIY – Tie dye jeans

Don’t you just love these Isabel Marant S/S 2012 jeans?

Well since they are not available yet,
I got inspired and decided to create my own!
What you need:
– A pair of old dark jeans
– Rubber bands
– Bleach

Take your pair of old jeans and tie with rubber bands until it is all bundled.

Mix the bleach with water, I really have no idea how much of each…
But I ended up using my hole bottle of bleach! haha

Place the jeans in the solution and don’t forget to use rubber gloves!!
I was told to leave it for two hours… so after two hours I went and to have look, but nothing had happened..
After three hours…. nothing happened.
After four hours…. nothing happened.

So I decided to leave them for the night… In the morning I found a little white package…
So I took of the rubber bands and put them in the washing machine..

et voila…

It’s a blogger’s world!

Editors Lunch

Last week we had a crazy week at The Collector. On Thursday we had all the editors and after a day of hard work on Saturday we had all the bloggers over for a well deserved dinner. Het Stamppotje was taking care of all the food and we had hay bales to sit on (called the local petting zoo and they redirected us to their local farmer). I was sitting opposite Sabrina Meijer from AfterDRK who also rents a desk in our office, this always means great fun ;-).

We are 1!

Hello! Today is our birthday! We have turned 1! Happy Birthday to ourselves! We are very proud. I would like to thank everybody who helped us during this year.

Let the next year be even better and bigger, we CAN NOT wait!

It has been the most amazing year, with the most amazing people. THANKS A MILLION!

Do not worry we will still throw an amazing party, but you will hear about that soon.


Avelon SS 12 Buying

So today I had an appoinment with Erik Frenken from Avelon. The buying seasons are always my favorites since I love seeing all the new collections. Today it was Avelon’s turn. Normally the collection is always very black and grey but for next summer Erik has injected some turquois into the collection. L.O.V.E  L.O.VE  L.O.V.E  IT! I have always been a big fan of their products because of the special cuts they have. Look at the overcoat I am wearing, it feels like someone has wrapped its arms around you. And BTW do you like my new shoes??? I know it is snake season but i still like my leopards……
