Blair: Once men have tasted caviar, it baffles me how they settle for catfish. #gossipgirl

I just love this quote from Gossip Girl. I actually love all the lines blair says in the show and I can see the emotion on her face when I picture her saying this line haha. I was wearing this jacket on top of the see through blouse of the last post. The outfit of the last post looks so much different with only a jacket on top of it. Amazing how one piece can change a whole look and attitude so it deserves a different post. I’m still in love with the unique jacket which I found in a vintage shop in Amsterdam. 

You cannot fake chic.

Hallo dears!! I’m currently sitting in my lovely room in Amsterdam enjoying it for the last time. I’m moving on Saturday because of my half year living in Madrid. I have a lot of sad and happy memories to this house and I really enjoyed living here for 2,5 years. I’m flying on 29 January to Madrid but first I have 2 weeks of exams ahead of me.. not looking forward to that! But anyhow about my look: I’m wearing a vintage white see through blouse with some gold jewellery. When I first saw the blouse I was hesitating because I don’t want to look to exposed with men staring like I’m running around naked seeking for attention, but I forced myself to just go for it. Nothing wrong with showing some skin. I believe that while we’re still young we should break all the rules and enjoy wearing risky clothes. There is no fun in keeping it safe. When I’m old I want to look back at my life and laugh about the clothes I was wearing and be proud of the courage I showed.

Dream without limits, think without limits.

Hope you all had some great christmas days!? My christmas -> Lots of food (too much food), lots of laughter and best of all lots of love. I found some time to make pictures on this amazing location. Wearing a new vintage jacket and my most (and only) comfortable shoes. Every time you see me wearing these shoes it means that I have to walk a lot that day. These are absolutely my shopping shoes. I want to end this post with the message that you can do, get and achieve everything that you want. I’m a firm believer in the law of attraction. What you think, believe and where you send your energy to -> you create.  There are no limits, only the limits that you set for yourself.

Fierce humor, fierce peace and fierce tenderness

Good morning my dears. I already told you about the crazy creative vibe I get in the evening so it’s not strange to believe that I’m posting this 3:20 in the (veryyy) early morning. My guy is sleeping as a sweetiepie next to me waiting for me to come to bed. I just couldn’t sleep without finally finishing this post. This post just took me too long with waiting for the pictures etc. But here it finally is, better late than never right. And the only thing I absolutely need to tell you about this look is the amazing necklace I’m wearing. It’s such a statement piece. I met this interesting and extremely nice girl, Sara, who has her own webshop called www.bohemianstyle.nl. She sells one of a kind jewellery like this necklace but also bags and shoes with all an ethnic bohemian vibe.  They are actually all made by hand in Marrakech! I just love items that has these unique cultural background. They tell a story and just feel so personal.

Let’s fantasize about the summer

Let’s dream about the summer, the sun and the blue sky. Close your eyes and try to see yourself standing in a field of flowers with a romantic dress on feeling the soft wind on your face and the warm sun on your skin. Summer is my season for sure. This picture was made last summer when it was such a beautiful weather.

I pick my friends like a pick my fruit.

Hello Dears. I’m posting this while I’m sitting in my room, warm and cosy. I’m hearing the rain and wind around the house and I’m glad to be inside. The title is a quote from the song appletree from Erykah Baduh. She is one of the most inspirational women I know. I really suggest everyone to look at her lyrics and try to understand what message she wants to bring. 
I believe that the friends that you have in your life, really tells something about the person you are. I believe that you shouldn’t have negative people in your life. The people who you surround yourself with have an enormousness impact on your thoughts, behaviour and even personality. You should be with positive, inspiring and motivating people constantly. You should never call someone your ‘friend’ if they don’t give you freedom in expressing yourself. A lot of people give unasked unmotivated judging opinions that unconsciously lock you in a box and keep you from living up to your full potential.  Even though these people can surely be fun to hang out with, you should choose your friends carefully. You should pick your friend like you pick your fruit.

A rebel is the one who lives totally according to his own light and risks everything else for his ultimate value of freedom.

Hello sweethearts & fellow rebels. Here a quick look of my Sunday outfit. I normally post looks of my outfit without jacket looking all summer and spring-like (my favourite kinda look haha )but my body couldn’t bear to stand outside in a thin blouse. So this oversized vintage blazer came to the rescue.
PS. I want to thank you all for the sweet messages♥♥

That she is pretty doesn’t mean you’re ugly

10 dec 2011 Posted by Her Phoenix in ., Looks

I tend to get a serious creative and artistic vibe filled with inspiration in the middle of the night so it’s not a surprise to me that I’m writing this post at 2:35 in the (early) morning. First thing first: my look. I wanted to show you this new vintage blouse//top/piece. I love the fabric and pattern. I kinda feel good in clothes that make me look like a crazy painting from another century. I’m wearing a H&M sparkly legging underneath to bring the top extra power. And I thought that the legging would balance the top just because the fabrics are both so ‘out there’.
Then about my title: There is so much competitive female behaviour in the world that totally destroys the balance in life. Women tend to compare themselves to other women and measure their confidence on that information. And then I don’t only mean the looks and clothes but also the degrees, the personality and the behaviour of the other women. If you notice that you can ‘top’ that women then you immediately gain energy and feel confident. But if you see that the other women has certain things that you don’t possess but wish to, then you can feel terrible. Most of the times you start to talk bad about that women just to feel better of yourself. I just want to remind that if you see a ‘perfect’ person and feel the boiling ‘jealousy’ coming up that just because she is sexy, intelligent and well dressed that doesn’t mean that you’re not. That she is pretty doesn’t mean that you’re ugly.

I want nothing but art and love.

Hello my dears. Currently I’m laying in my bed with my laptop being a little sick. Every year I have one sick period in the autumn/winter times and yesterday those sick days started. Luckily I have a look to show you that we made on Sunday. It actually looks warm and sunny, almost like summer. Well, it was sunny for a couple of hours but don’t let that fool you. It’s still Holland -> cold. The only thing I need to say about my outfit that I love these tights! I have wanted them for over a year now, but last week I finally bought them. I wish to stay in bed all day watching my favorite series but unfortunately I need to do some stuff for school, bummer. But before sending this post I just need to inform and persuade you all to go and start watching the serie; the vampire diaries. It’s brilliant, amazing, and it’s all about passion and love -> what more could you ask for!? Seriously, start watching and let me know how it works out for you. I personally can’t sleep at night because I want to see all the eposides.

If you show up looking a bit more glam than the rest, what’s the worst-case scenario? You look the best in the room?

I always notice, talking to girls, that they are afraid to be overdressed. Some people wish to know what others are wearing so that they don’t stand out to much at a party for example. But I want everyone to think: If you show up looking a bit more glam than the rest, what’s the worst-case scenario? You look the best in the room?’  I believe that there is nothing wrong with looking the best in the room, just be proud with the fact that you look like a stunner who took the effort to dress up for a nice evening.
