She’s blonde, she’s young, she’s beautiful. She never leaves the house looking anything less than supercool. She’s a big fan of vintage and she always picks special items that make her wardrobe unique and personal. Her dream job gives her the opportunity to follow the most important fashion shows around the world and to always be right on top of the latest trends.
I recently read this quote by John Burroughs: "I still find each day too short for all the thoughts I want to think, all the walks I want to take, all the books I want to read, and all the friends I want to see." That pretty much sums up my relationship with time.
I snooze a hundred times and open Instagram to stay awake. When I finally drag myself out of bed – approximately half an hour after my first alarm went off. I either make a breakfast smoothie if I have enough time or rush into the shower.
So many… I’ll try to keep it short: @blancamiro @majawyh @manrepeller @pernilleteisbaek @sarrjamois
Canggu, a surfer town in Bali. It has a perfect mix of rice fields, local shops and warungs with mouthwatering nasi campur plus a few cool restaurants and stores.
The Vondelpark in autumn, when the leaves of trees turn yellow, orange and red. Never gets old.
All my coats. Coats are the building bricks of my wardrobe, since we have to wear one almost every day of the year in the Netherlands. I can’t live without my biker jacket (which is made from recycled leather) and my faux fur coats.
I was able to see New York for the first time thanks to my job. It was during New York Fashion Week and although I was freezing to death – it was -16 outside – it was an unforgettable journey. Recently I was invited to stay at Yasuragi in Stockholm, an amazing Japanese spa. Traveling is one of the best aspects of my job. I still feel so lucky every time I get on a plane.
Someone who radiates kindness.
A trip to Paris in August 2008. My boyfriend and I started dating two months earlier. We walked around city on cloud nine.
In the nick of time or maximum 5 minutes late. It's just impossible for me to be on time, but I'm never embarrassing late.
Barcelona. My favorite city in the world. It has a beach, beautiful museums, mesmerizing architecture and incredible food. Sitting on a terrace in the El Born neighbourhood after a day of sun worshipping and cycling by Gaudi's Casa Milà is my idea of happiness.
There is a 65-years old lady living inside of me. Aside from work (which allows me to travel often, takes me to incredible parties and meet extraordinary people) I'm really boring. I love to stay in at night. If I party once a year, that's a lot for me.
Becoming vegan was and still is the most fulfilling decision of my life. I admire people who try to do something good for the planet and I always challenge myself to do more.
I try to buy as much vintage and second hand as possible. I love going to flea markets and thrift stores. Fashion in itself recycles all the time. For instance: nineties puffer jackets are everywhere this fall. You can find amazing puffer jackets in thrift stores. I also try to think consciously before I buy something. Do I really need this? Is the quality long-lasting? Will I still be happy with it in 5 years? I would never buy something I know I’m only going to wear once.
Stella McCartney and Bruno Pieters. They show that you don’t have to sacrifice style when you buy sustainable/vegan/green.
my favorite is the mercer white rose gold, goes with everything.
hope I'm still as happy as I am today and travel even more.
The Mercer in White - Rose Gold. Goes with everything.
In five years I hope I'm still as happy as I am today and travel even more.
