LIKE TO HAVE: CLOTHES FROM ALAND SEOUL

May 9, 2011

I love discovering chains we don’t have in the Netherlands. Like Aland: a store with several outlets in Seoul. They collect nice things from all over the world to create a fantastic collection. I did some online window shopping and these are my favorites:

Dress: 33 euro
Bag from Baggu: 37 euro
Espadrilles: 31 euro

LIKE TO HAVE: THE TOTE BAG

April 28, 2011

I really like Tote Bags. I bought one of Alphabet Bags in London last March and get one at We Like Fashion in April. If you want to start a collection you have a lot of choice. Take a look inside the Tote Bag Book and you’ll find all kind of bags you like to have. Almost all of them carry a message like ‘buy me a drink’. And they are decorated beautifully. Price: 23 euro.

LIKE TO HAVE: ITEMS FROM BIRD NEW YORK

April 15, 2011

Why you should go to Bird when you’re in New York? Well this store is voted Best Fashion Store in New York several times. The former buyer from Barneys decided to open her own boutique in 1999 in Brooklyn. Now fashionista’s gladly leave their Manhattan island to visit that store (or one of the other two stores) in Brooklyn. The collection is fabulous. She sells items from A.P.C., Acne and Alexander Wang among others.

I did some online window shopping and found my favorites:

Leather espadrilles from 3.1 Phillip Lim: 192 euro
Long skirt from Madewell: 110 euro
Striped shirt from Edith A Miller: 45 euro

LIKE TO HAVE: MOLESKINE TRAVEL JOURNAL

April 12, 2011

I love travelling as you all know. But I also love one brand and that’s called Moleskine. This weekend there were three Moleskines on my table: my journal, my diary and a secret travel project I’m working on. New is this Travel Journal. A great gift for someone who travels a lot – or dreams of travelling the world!

TRUE OR FALSE?

April 10, 2011

When I visited Australia ten years ago I was definitely a Sydney fan. I lived in Bondi Beach, celebrated New Year’s Eve in some hot club near the harbour and loved the skyscrapers (yes, I’m a skyscraper girl otherwise I would be living in Amsterdam right now). Melbourne was more like Amsterdam I thought: with all the cozy terraces in St Kilda. But while I’m still making wishlists for both cities for my next trip Melbourne is quickly becoming full of cool hotspots. Hmm… what do you think? Which city in Australia is better?

Cushion from Make Me Iconic (also available: Melbourne is better than Sydney – just in case). Price: 62 euro.

LIKE TO HAVE: MINIBAR FOR THE MIND

April 6, 2011

I love a well stocked mini bar – especially with funny items in it. At the Ace Hotel in Portland I felt like home when they offered me Stroopwafels – a Dutch delight. The Morgans Hotel Group teams up with the School of Life and if you’re staying in one of their hotels you get this Minibar for the Mind set. In it you’ll find Conversation Starters (speaks for itself), Collective Thoughts (inspiring thoughts written down by members of the School of Life), Dreams & Fears Notebook and a set of really great pencils. I love it! Oh, you can also buy the set via their website for 40 euro.

LIKE TO HAVE: HUMANOID DESERT LOOK

April 2, 2011

Thank you Humanoid for helping me how to survive the desert in style. The new collection of this Dutch brand is a great inspiration of what to pack for your trip to Amangiri in Utah, a Ryad like Ptit Habibi in Marrakech or The Raas Hotel in India.

LIKE TO HAVE: LONDON SOLE

March 25, 2011

I’m not really into high heels. I’m only 1.67 meter so I have to, sometimes. But deep down inside I want to have a collection of London Sole. Just like Kate Moss. I have one pair – but they are almost at the end of their existence – so I need another pair. And my heart beats faster for this new collection! The one with the red accent: love it! Price? 155 euro.

LIKE TO HAVE: BAG FROM URBAN OUTFITTERS

March 13, 2011

Sometimes you don’t buy something and you have regrets afterwards. That’s the case with this bag from Urban Outfitters. I like the color so much. What do you think? Do I need to buy it online? Price: 89 euro.
