Wardrobe staples

Plenty of girls have too many clothes. I know I have! There are a few pieces in my closet though that I cannot go without: my wardrobe staples. No matter what the trends are, no matter what is in style, I make sure I have an item like it in my closet. The main reason:…

Fall/ winter lookbook (#4): Aztec print

Sweaters are all the rage this season. So are prints. Aztec or tribal print has not yet gone out of style and it is one of my favorite prints out there. I own several Aztec print items. Among them is this baggy oversized navy & mustard men’s sweater from Primark which I bought in London…

Yesterday I went shopping in Amsterdam. I hadn’t been there in months. The last time I was there at all was November and I last went shopping there almost 6 months ago. Since yesterday would be the last semi-decent day till who knows when I decided to head out do some shopping. It’s not a…

Fashion Wish List

So many cool trends have been happening lately and that is why my fashion wishlist has been growing quite a bit. Because of my London trip I’ve refrained from buying too many new things as I want to see what is available at stores that I cannot get to on a regular basis. I hope…

Shoplog: Zara, Bershka, MAC & Urban Decay

Almost 2 years ago, I had a makeshift wardrobe, consisting of 2 separate closets that were old and rickety. One day, one of the closets decided to collapse on me. All the shelves simply fell down and that’s when I knew: it’s time to buy myself a new closet. I went all over town trying…

Video: Collective shopping haul

I thought I’d try something different again and instead of bringing you a haul post in pictures, it’s now in video. And you can watch it in HD. Only thing is that for some reason my upload got scrunched and I don’t know why. It will probably be some setting I used when publishing the…

Primark Haul + some nail polish

Since it’s vacation and I still had some money left from my birthday, I decided it was time for some shopping. It had been a while since I last visited Primark, so I decided to go there. I got up early because shopping at Primark means you need a strategy in order to battle the…
