A girl doesn’t need anyone who doesn’t need her

Wearing the camouflage army blouse! Styled it with some gold jewellery, short levis shorts and animal JC’s. I’m booking my trip to cadiz today for spring break. My weather app is driving my crazy though. One day it says cadiz will be sunny and then the next day its rainy. I’m currently praying for nice weather because I want to spend my days on the beach, tanning my Dutch albino body haha

When women ask you for your opinion, they don’t want to hear your opinion, they want to hear their opinion in a deeper voice.

More military items yeah! I purchased two military camouflage jackets/blouses today from this great military shop that I found in Madrid and I just had to show at least one of them in a post. I have hundreds of ideas how to wear them so you will definitely see both of them in a look soon. I actually have another amazing military camouflage jacket that my father gave me a while ago but it didn’t fit in my suitcase while moving to Madrid unfortunately. Gave me a great excuse to buy this one haha

Those scenarios you make up in your head when you like someone.

Hello dears. I’m happy to share this new look. I Made a new lovely friend in Madrid who makes amazing pictures. I could convince him to take some pictures and hopefully we’ll proceed this in the future =)24 degrees means for the spanish people; winter jacket with jeans, boots and sweaters but I’m in the shorts and heels. This weather feels like summer for my Dutch cold body. I’m wearing a dress as a shirt from nelly.com, vintage jacket, h&m shorts of last year and ofcourse my JC heels. I’ve been wearing them almost every day. They make every outfit look special and they are so comfortable. I’m leaving to valencia in the morning to celebrate las fallas. Excited! Have to get some sleep to survive it.

I still haven’t introduced you to these babies. I actually have them for a while now but still didn’t introduce them. These are just the perfect shoes for the spring vibe in Madrid. ♥‿♥

The Military look. I’ve been loving this for a long time. I’m pretty sure I got that obsession from my father. Balmain brought that love to the next level. Bought this jacket in a very special vintage shop in Madrid. You can customize your jacket all the way yourself, adding logos and chains. I’m wearing it with my new rings/cuff from Nelly. I’ll always be a sucker for gold Jewellery. And as you may notice, I dyed my hair again. It goes from dark to light in different layers. If the sun hits the hair, the ends look way lighter and the middle more brownish. I want to dye it lighter again but I’m going to wait one or two months to avoid too much damage. And this is the first time I’m wearing sunglasses on a picture. I normally never wear sunglasses but Spain is forcing it on me.

Happy Days

Ola guapa. A different post than usual. I also made pictures from my look today that I will upload later. But first I want to share this amazing place with you. I love cookies, cupcakes, muffins and pies so when I found this place I was in heaven!! It’s located 10 minutes of walking from my house ( even more amazing!! ) and is called Happy Days. And I can tell you, it makes my days very happy hahah. I’m planning of trying literally everything that’s in the shop before I go back to Holland. So it will be 5 months full of sweets haha.

Hello sweethearts. I finally succeeded to upload a new post. I made this look a couple of days ago but my laptop couldn’t read the files from the camera (we used the nikon camera from my lovely photographer Amber and my laptop is used to canon). As the title says; we Dutch people talk a lot about the weather. In Holland most of the time because the weather is crappy and that we’re not pleased with that, but now being in Madrid I just want to tell everyone how lovely the weather is and how happy it is making me. It’s ridiculous how much my mood, feelings and emotions are attached to the weather. With 18 degrees, I just wish to lay in the sun all day, read a book, listen to music and just relax. I’ve made these pictures in the beautiful retiro park. I will spend most of my spring time in there. I’m wearing new shoes that I bought in Madrid which are unfortunately not that comfortable. I actually tripped two times while wearing this to school. big fail. At that moment I can hear other girls thinking:’Then don’t wear those ridiculous heels haha’.

I have an irrational fear of wasting a good outfit on an insignificant day.

Ola guapa. Told you in the last post about my new fur jacket. Well here she is, in all her glory. And god, I’m so happy with her. Bought her in a cool vintage shop close to my house. Madrid is actually vintage heaven. Could walk for years in this beautiful city watching the beautiful buildings and in search for the secret vintage shops. Wearing the outfit with the new shoes from my lovely guy. The necklace is also new, saw it for only 5 euro’s in this little shop, screaming my name, so couldn’t refuse ofcourse (I have problems with refusing, that’s for sure haha). I could persuade Amber (also a dutch student living the good life in Madrid) to take these pictures and I’m so thankful for that, she sure got skills!

Birthday present

11 feb 2012 Posted by Her Phoenix in ., Looks

Good morning dears. Excited to show you what just came in my mailbox! I got original JC lita’s and I’m so happy with them. I’ve always still wanted the originals because they can be matched with every outfit. I wanted to get these heels to wear on a daily basis and not being afraid for it to get dirty. I also bought the most amazing white fur jacket. Going to make a look with them soon. I’ve been looking for a white fur jacket for ages and I’m thrilled I finally found it. Madrid is full with amazing vintage shops so I feel like I’m in vintage heaven. It’s only dangerous for my wallet and I have no idea how I’m going to get all those clothes home after 5 months. That’s going to be a total suitcase nightmare.

Wearing Michael Jackson on my birthday

Ola guapa. 20 years ago on 4 February 1992 I was born in the south of the Netherlands in a big snow storm. Yes you read it correctly, today is my birthday. I’m not a teenager any more! Happy birthday to me.

Tomorrow will be the last day of my first week in Madrid and I’m falling in love with the city. I left Holland just in time because it’s extremely(!) cold there right now. Madrid feels like spring, I love the sun! I asked my roommate today to make pictures to show you the new white shoes from the last post and my Michael Jackson shirt. I will always love his music and his inspiring clothes. I would love to rock all his shiny jackets.
