SOUVENIR FROM FRANCE

December 13, 2010

This weekend I went to France. To an area called Pas-de-Calais (only 3 hours from where I live). There’s not much design to find, but it’s always a bliss to just go somewhere and do nothing. Well do nothing? I had one purpose: find Vogue Paris. Because this december there’s this great calendar sealed with it – with a naked Daria Werbowy (in my opinion one of the most beautiful women on earth) in it. The calendar is only available in France – so it’s worth taking the trip. Or surf down to Fashionologie for all the images.

LIKE TO HAVE: LINGERIE WITH STARS ON IT

November 3, 2010


If you’ve been to Paris, you know that you’ll find a Princess Tam Tam on every street corner. I love their lingerie. Because, sorry big breasted girls, they sell pretty bras in small sizes. And that’s a hard thing to find in the Netherlands. I like their new serie with stars on it. And in summer I want to have every bikini. Check it out when you’re in Paris.
