So happy to be finally back online! Sorry for my complete absence the last few weeks. My laptop crashed and it took me some time to arrange new things.
A lot happened since . I can not believe time runs so fast! Lately I have been busy with the end of my second study year. Im working on a summercoat and a collection on paper using a "bow" as inspiration. Just three weeks left to finish everthing..
Besides my study im doing an internship at one of the fasion labels here in Arnhem. Im totally excited we will show the collection at Amsterdam Fasion Week in July. More of that soon!
Some weeks ago I decided to visit some regular shops. I was looking for a wollen jacket for quite a long time when I found this one in the Bershka. The same day I found the scarf in the Zara. I combine them often together to create a warm and wollen look.
The new pieces are combined with some old. I found these trousers quite some years ago in the Episode. I wore them so much that you could say I kind of lived in them. They are my absolute favourite, but now I only wear them on special days or when I really feel like wearing them cause they might fall apart soon. Last but not least, the shoes which are my favourite at the moment are from a vintage market in Utrecht (originally from Ecco).

When I found out there were two vintage markets this weekend I was so excited. One in The Hague and one in Arnhem. I really like to wander around at those markets and found some really great pieces in between the chaos, At the moment as you can see I'm into the pastel prints.
I spent the weekend wandering around at the vintage markets en the material market in Utrecht. I come often in Utrecht for the market. There is so many choice that most of the time I somehow get lost so I'm figuring out a kind of strategy to keep things together. This saterday I was looking for some nice materials for my new design for school. Coming semester we have a "free" design. I'm thinking about designing a high waisted trouser and found the perfect material. More of that soon!
After a weekend full of dancing I'm ready for a new week of hard work. And for me there's is no better way than to start the week with a new blog :). My sister made these pictures last saterday in Utrecht. Since the winter is finally kicking in here in Holland I thought it is time to show you some winter outfits.
I completely fell in love with this coat when I found him. I love the pattern and the big pockets in which you can warm your hands. It's a little oversized and a simple design but a really great effect. I found the coat in a very inspiring second hand shop in Gouda named "De Blauwe Hoed". Is absolutely worth a visit when you are in the neighbourhood.
Have a good week, I'll keep you posted!

I can not believe time is running so fast. We´re already far in january! For me, the start of a new year is always a good moment to think about the past year. There have been a lot of changes the past year. I moved to Arnhem and jumped into a new job. And ofcourse starting the blog which makes me really excited for what the new year will bring.
Lately I have been busy with my job in the lawyers office and in between I´m working on the projects for my study. I finished a new design which I will show you soon! For drawing class im working on a project which I really like because you never know how spots will turn out. In that way you may create unexpected and surprising things. At the moment I´m kind of stuck in the process. I would like the paintings to get more of an illustration and im figuring out what is missing. Let me know what you think!
Today I received some good and inspiring comments on my first assignment for drawing class. After hours of practicing to draw the perfect body I stepped into the process of searching for an idea to create an illustration. I was so happy to find these great backgrounds. I tried to combine the movement of the model with the dynamics of the background. Furthermore I wanted the poses to be elegant and strong. Using pastel colors and prints for the clothes I tried to add some softness and romantics. Let me know what you think!
I know this is quite a summer picture but I really wanted to show you. Tim shot this picture in an unknown moment, I think those moments are the most inspiring.

The outfit im wearing in the picture contains some of my favourite items. To begin, I really like long skirts. This skirt is my own design. The material is actually striped but I think its not noticable from a distance. I love how the material moves when I walk.
The bag is my absolute favourite. I remember how happy I was when i found him a few years ago in the Episode. Since then, I always bring him when Im on my way for a few days. When I visit my parents my dad always tells me how impractical the bag is because he is already kind of heavy without stuff. But I think this bag is absolutely worth the effort :).
