Get your Sexy on! Hunkemöller Glam Collection

December 28, 2015

Hello there Lovelies!

This week I was lucky enough to be invited by Hunkemöller to check out their newest Glam Collection, it’s so beautiful! To get started, they measured me and helped me to find the perfect fit for my bodytype, and then… the shopping started! The Glam Collection has lots of variations with mainly black & red colors, lace, diamonds and strappy details for the perfect sexy holidays. Curious about which two sets I selected? Keep reading and let me know what you think about them :)   Hunkemöller Glam 8 Hunkemöller Glam 9

For this look I’m going for sexy black lace with garters and hold-ups! The bra has a subtle Push-up for a better shape and I love the cute little rose as a detail on both the bra and the panty. Personally, I have to admit that I am not a huge fan of garters because I am too darn clumsy to get them on, but I have to be honest… once I got them on it felt pretty awesome! Lingerie really does make women feel beautiful! Hunkemöller Glam 8 Hunkemöller Glam 7 Hunkemöller Glam 6

For the second look I went for a romantic touch with a Kimono and lots of lace! I’m wearing a short top and matching panties with diamond details on the back. The reason I went for this lingerie set is because of the many ways I can wear it: cute and romantic with the kimono, sexy lady with the full transparant look, or adding an extra glam detail to your holiday outfits with an open back.

Don’t you love the beautiful little detail on the panties with matching diamonds? I am going to wear this top during NYE because my dress has an open back and the diamond chains will be an awesome detail, I’m excited already! Hunkemöller Glam 1Hunkemöller Glam 2

Sooo… I am super curious about what you guys think about my choices of the Hunkemöller Glam Collection! Which one is  your favorite? Would you go for another set? Let me know!

#OOTD Back to School! How to rock a Jumpsuit

October 29, 2015

Tomorrow it’s happening for me, I am going back to school! I will start my Master in Art Direction and Creative Advertising at the INSA Business School here in Barcelona, and I am looking forward to it like crazy! That is why I am dedicating today’s #OOTD to a school-proof outfit: simple but classy.

Earlier this week I was visiting the designer Loretta Piovano, who is known for her feminine designs and adding interesting details to the outfits in order to create unique pieces. One of the designs she gave me was this black jumpsuit, which has a gorgeous neckline and a perfect cut… I was immediately in love! The jumpsuit itself is a typical all-black-classic, which gives lots of space to varying styling options.

So for today guys… I NEED YOUR HELP! There are so many cool ways to wear this jumpsuit that I can’t decide which one to choose for my first day of school, let’s check them out:

The Classy Lady

For the first option I went for a feminine style with black heels, a turban and a draped scarf from S Oliver. As a color detail I am holding a bright blue clutch of Karl Lagerfeld, I got it in Paris last fashion week during the presentation of Karl’s new collection… I love it! While wearing this outfit I feel like a true lady who can go to class one moment (perhaps slightly overdressed, but definitely stylish!), and then go for a cocktail with a friend afterwards… who wouldn’t love this combination?!

Shop the Look:

Turban Mango: €9,99

Scarf Zara (similar): €25,95

Wallet Karl Lagerfeld (Pink): €85,-

Or in case you just LOVE the blue:

Blue Clutch Givency: €360,-

 

 

                                                                      The ‘Too Cool for School’                                                                  

Another idea is to just completely ditch the lady look and go for a streetstyle with my all-time favorite black Converse sneakers. With a comfy long navy-style cardigan I can comfortably walk around without getting cold and my big backpack can definitely hold any book I might need! Perhaps you might have noticed that the neckline of the jumpsuit changed… while being clumsy and putting it on wrong, I actually discovered that I like this straight neckline too, PLUS the back has a cool detail to it now! I’m not sure if Loretta Piovano had a reversible jumpsuit in mind when she designed this beauty, but it sure works! With the streetstyle look I feel confident and casual, which is also very important for a first day!

Shop the Look:

Converse Shoes: €55,-

Mango Cardigan: €49,99

Zara Bonnet: €9,95

Backpack: Vintage

 

Girly Chic

Braids, black derby shoes and a fedora hat… how cute can it get?! To don’t look all too much like a naïve schoolgirl I edged up the look with a leather jacket and my little Moschino bag. I think it sends the message: I’m cute, but don’t mess with me! At least, that’s what I like to believe haha. Personally I love Fedora hats since they make an outfit instantly fashionable. The good ones are hard to find but once you got it… cherish it! In this girly chic outfit I feel stylish and ready to rock my day!

Lots of love,

SS16 John Galliano – Back to British

October 5, 2015

After being out for a while, it is finally time for the return of John Galliano to the worlds fashion capital, Paris! The SS16 Collection is inspired by his roots in Great Britain, as we can see several references to British history, as well as to modern London. John Galliano portrays a unique mixture of statuesque uniforms with British rock and intimate lace work.

As the models walk down the runway we see lots of blazers and trousers with strong lines, creating a powerful and edgy feel. The cuts are perfectly tailored to the female body and the materials follow flawlessly. On the other hand, we also see a lot of delicate transparent lace with subtle embellishments. These inherently feminine designs are edged up with Brit-inspired caps, flat shoes and a badass attitude. Other notable designs are romantic cocktail dresses with a deep V-neck, several Brit-inspired checkered suits, and long organza dresses which flow beautifully over the catwalk. A returning motive is the use of polka dots, which can be found in most of the outfits.

The use of color is mainly black & white. However, there are several color accents such as beige, blue, army green and bright orange. John Galliano manages to create a coherent overall style by playing with these color accents throughout the presentation. The make-up and the hair are very neutral with an emphasizes on brushy brows, probably in order to don’t make the looks too feminine. After all: John Galliano is going for subtle Brit Rock.

While John Galliano is commonly known for his over-the-top carnavalesque flamboyantly eccentric style, this SS16 collection was more subtle and can immediately be taken to the streets. A piece of London was present in Paris today, and the lovers of British fashion will be standing in line for this unique collection. Welcome back John Galliano!
