LIKE TO HAVE: SHIRT WITH FUNNY BUTTON

August 9, 2010

Usually I write about clothes for women. That has a simple reason: I’m a woman and if I like something it gets a place on my site. But what about the men who read Petite Passport? That’s why I come up with this shirt for men. Why do I like it? Because it is simple yet funny (because the funny wooden button in the middle). It’s from New York fashion label ‘Slow and Steady wins the race’ and you can buy it for 65 euro (sale price) at Hunting and Collecting. A very, very cool store in Brussels. They also sell stuff for women, kids and home in a simple, white interior. Go and see!

TRIED & TESTED: RESTORED AMSTERDAM

July 28, 2010

Most striking feature:

The absolute paradise for gifts. For yourself (I bought this tiny little letters for my bedroom for 12,50 euro) and for others. For example: I have a friend who loves fashion and now I’ve found the perfect gift: a book called Fashionary. It’s a sort of Moleskine but on every page there’s a female figure. The only thing you need to do is draw them a nice little outfit. So you become a fashion designer yourself (price: 25 euro). I also spotted cool cushions, jewelry and clothes. Must visit while you’re in Amsterdam.

LIKE TO HAVE: PILLOW at SKOON ECODESIGN

May 15, 2010


At first this shop was nestled in Leiden, now they moved to Alkmaar. Not a place that I visit often, but they have a webshop. Everything in their store is made with love for the environment. A lot of recycled products but nicely done. Just like this pillow from old Post sacks in the Netherlands. You can buy one for 45 euro.

LIKE TO HAVE: WORLD CUSHION at DEPOT ROTTERDAM

April 2, 2010

3 reasons to shop at Depot Rotterdam:

  1. This cushions from Ferm Living would just fit my couch in an extreme positive way.
  2. The collection is a mix of high end design (think: Moooi) and affordable stuff (think: this cushion aka 67 euro).
  3. Their window is an inspiration everytime I walk past.
