Animal Love

For all of you out there who own an animal, they know what I am talking about. About the love of an animal, that unconditional love no matter what. The designers, for the past seasons, have perfected that animal love. You just know that you love the Burberry trench to death, and it loves you … Continue reading

Shopping mania

Just recently (or not so recently) I went to London for business and tagged on a day of shopping. Something I’ve wanted to do for a while – go to Bicester Village which promises to be another shoppers haven. The way to do it really is to book the Chauffeur Drive, which is a luxury … Continue reading

Portrait of a Family

The Tommy Hilfiger ad campaign displaying portraits of an American upper class family clan is one of my favorite advertisement series right now. I just love how it has been put together. The photographer has managed to capture the arrogance and snobbishness of a family in feud so well. One can see the stuck-up girls … Continue reading

Summer Boots

Summer boots is one concept I have failed to grasp. I mean, in Europe where you have to wear boots half of the year anyway given the funny climate, you would think one is happy to get out of them when spring does finally arrive. And then, for the few weeks there is actually a … Continue reading

London calling

I am a lot in London these days – on business. However, there is always a little bit of time here and there to do some shopping and go into the city. I absolutely adore London, however, Londoners are a bit funny in some ways. The other day when I was at Selfridges for a … Continue reading

On the road again

Over the past week, I have been traveling again. In a relatively short period of time I went to Frankfurt, London, and Madrid. Naturally I did a lot of fashion spotting and comparing, and London comes out as the winner by far. I have to say that London inspires me a great deal. Anything goes … Continue reading

Rock chic

One of my favorite looks for fall is the rock chick or rock chic look. I love the combination of heavy boots or booties, combined with slim jeans and a leather jacket biker style. Or a little mini dressĀ  combined again with biker boots and a leather jacket. Add a silver necklace or two, get … Continue reading

Boots – really?

Now that we are slowly heading into fall, I can observe the most interesting clothing combinations on my daily commute. Granted, the mornings are very cool now, mostly under 10 degrees C, but during the day it will warm up nicely to around 20 degrees C. And yet I see already people wearing down jackets … Continue reading

Great shopping destination

Last weekend I went to Maastricht to visit friends. Maastricht is an awesome city in so many ways. I think it’s one of my most favorite cities in Europe. There are a lot of Michelin-starred restaurants in and around Maastricht, and Gault Millau had a field day there, too. The restaurant where we had the … Continue reading

Bad style day today?

This morning on the commuter train, I saw a guy in a suit (black with light brown pin-stripes) wearing light brown shoes (would be ok as it kinda matches) and a black belt (that combination is now definitely NOT ok anymore), but he was carrying a Louis Vuitton laptop bag. Surely a case of too … Continue reading
