Shiny maxi dresses, sheer black blouses and a marine colored jumpsuit. Zara’s lates lookbook is definitely one to keep in mind with the holiday’s in sight. Are you still in need for a perfect outfit? Check out In the Evening.
You know I’m a big fan of the lighter color range lately, but seeing this I think I’ll make an exception and go back to black for some time. Zara‘s holiday collection might not be all that new and daring considering the dark colors and sparkle bits, but it is definitely up to date considering the pieces they uses. Sheer fabrics, bellybuttons showing and a touch of leather here and there are the ingredients for this years Christmas dinner.
It’s not all fancy stuff, by the way. There’s a jersey-like T-shirt and tough leather jacket available too. I guess there’s one for every style. Here’s my favorites.
I love flowers, especially roses. It might be cliché, but they’re so lovable. Except when they sting, of course. But the roses I’m talking about right now won’t sting at all. They’ll just look pretty.
These images down below belong to the new jewelry collection by Mr. Kate, called Winter Rose. Isn’t it beautiful? They’re all handmade pieces, edgy yet sweet. I’d love to get some roses like these. Isn’t it just the perfect holiday gift? And yes, this might be a hint.
There we are again, another Instalife! With lots of interior stuff this time. I’ve decorated my Christmas tree -no, it’s not too early- and visited one of Holland’s best interior designers: Jan des Bouvrie. But of course that’s not all, let’s take a look!
1. Sleepy face, I’m definitely not a morning person.
2. Pepernoten! A Dutch treat we enjoyed at work, while
listening to Christmas songs. Love it!
3. Decorated my Christmas tree with all kinds of colors.
4. A horse lamp I spotted at Het Arsenaal, where
Jan des Bouvrie has his work place.
5. Also spotted: a crazy, but beautiful interior.
6. Working on a production for Wellness magazine,
accompanied by my beautiful tree.
7. Wet hair, o well.
You know how much I love Christmas. You also know how much I love fashion, obviously. Combine the both and you’ve got my heaven. So now guess what happened? A Dolce & Gabbana Christmas tree!
Domenico and Stefano designed the Christmas tree that’s positioned in the Claridge hotel in London. This beauty got revealed recently so of course I have to write about it. What can I say? It’s beautiful! Guests who came to check it out were non other than Poppy Delevingne, Eva Herzigová and Joan Collins. O, how I would’ve loved to be one of them. Though I think the drawing looks a lot more cheerful than the real thing, but that could just be the lighting. Merry Christmas!
Vintage, I love it. Though after my vintage adventure in Berlin a while ago, I haven’t been seeing a lot of it. Until last Sunday, when I went to the Vintage per Kilo event with my friend Kim, better check out her blog by the way. She’s a vintage-queen!
Unfortunately I wasn’t able to buy all that much. Sunglasses and a blouse of which the buttons are really the only thing that caught my attention. You’ll see more about that later, maybe when I finally know what to do with it. Also, there was quite some new stuff available, even though owner of PreLoved and organizer of the event Romy Goedhart did some personal vintage shopping in London to get the area full. ‘I have some friends there who have vintage-connections all over the place’, she told me. This Groningen-born girl moved to Amsterdam, but decided to organize the Vintage per Kilo-event here. ‘There’s a lot of these things in Amsterdam and Utrecht, so why not bring it here?’
Why indeed? I’m happy she did, at least. And I guess I’m not the only one, cause lots and lots of people showed up. So check out my photo report of this busy shopping day and excuse the bad quality, lighting was quite bad in this otherwise awesome location. And also: pay attention to the gorgeous vintage sweater Romy is wearing.
On my last address I had a Bloglovin option for people to follow me and I just realized I never relaunched that on the WordPress-version of Xanns place. What a shame! So I started it up again, which gets me to the message of this post. It’s quite simple really: FOLLOW MY BLOG!
Yes those capitals are absolutely necessary. Click the image on the right side of this page or just follow the followmyblog-url above. Thank you!
Every little girl -maybe boy too- wants to be a Disney princess, which is why it’s not such a weird idea to put them on the cover of a magazine. Robby Cook must have been thinking the same, because he created these fashion-style magazines with fairy tale covers.
These editions of Wish Magazine feature Jasmine, Ariel, princess Tiana and Sleeping Beauty on the cover. And look at those lines on the cover! So clever! It’s too bad really that Wish Magazine isn’t a really thing, because I would definitely buy it.
