Mimi et Toi | Jewellery

This is a nice story! About six months ago I met Mirjam {Mimi} in the fitting-room at the Rika shop in Amsterdam. People who know this shop also know that this is by far the smallest shop in the nine streets. Not very handy, especially when they have sale... So it happens that Mimi and I had to share the one and only fitting-room and started to talk about her jewellery and my fashion blog. To cut a long story short, I found out that Mimi is an amazing jewellery designer and that she has launched this amazing webshop Mimi et Toi. Have a look and see for yourself!

Sweatshirt | Piece to have

Lucky for me, a lot of designers embraced the mélange sweatshirt. So yes, I think that for spring 2011 this is a piece to have, if you didn't have one already... You can go for a very nice (and expensive) one like Isabel Marant, but don't underestimate the ones from H&M or Zara!

Inspiration | Current/Elliott

As I cheated on my favorite brand Acne this week (I bought a Current/Elliott corduroy pants...) I might as well show you some inspiration from the Current/Elliott Holiday Resort 2011 lookbook. This LA jeans label just started of in july 2008 and raised the bar for the denim standard already! The brand has got a wide range of styles, from skinny to loose baggy and everything in between. At the moment I'm really into skinny's, so I would go for this one above! And what an amazing denim shirt she's wearing...

Review 2010

The year 2010 has almost finished and so it's time for a little review. It has been a great fashion year for me, especially bloggerwise...More and more readers discovered my blog, I've started my own company Media Trends, visited two shows at the Amsterdam International Fashion Week, went to Paris Fashion Week twice (to shoot streetstyle pics), been to the Modefabriek Amsterdam, had one of my streetstyle photos featured in the Dutch Elle and I started blogging for the Dutch fashion website In de Mode. And then I'm not even talking about how twitter changed my life...my fashion life that is!

So, you'll all understand that I will try to maintain this positive flow of course! Starting of in january with an interview ànd photo in the Dutch fashion magazine Red (february 2011 issue) 'For the best things in life'! Thank you all for following and supporting me this year and of course I hope you will continue to do so in 2011!

Just so you know, these Isabel Marant pants from the Spring 2011 collection will be probably one of my first new fashion buys in 2011, maybe even in the colour pink...! Photo from all the pretty birds.

Pietrasanta | Italy

Yes, I know it's very cold outside! So all the more reason to think of warmer places... Today I received an email with season greetings from 'my' Italian jeweller Marco Balderi, how nice! He's an amazing artist and creates the most beautiful jewellery. His Buone Feste wishes came with this wonderful photo of Pietrasanta - a small town near the Tuscan coast - where he lives. I love Pietrasanta and fortunately I'm going to visit it again next summer! Fino ad allora!

Sofia Coppola, actress, film maker, film director and daughter of famous film director Francis Ford Coppola featured in Vogue UK january 2011.

'I have to do something creative, otherwise life's not fulfilling!' she said in an interview in that same Vogue. Love that quote!

Basic Tee

I have got a lot of T-Shirts in my closet and this one is my favorite at the moment. You can't have enough basic Tees, because they always look good underneath that fitted jacket or black cardigan. This one is the Copy Classic T-Shirt from Acne and the fit is just perfect. The blue colour looks amazing with black! So I wear it with my fitted black Filippa K jacket and my vintage black Acne jeans...of course!
