Bonjour mes amis! It’s been three weeks since I left Paris. It was such a nice time and experience but I will return in June for a short visit to reunite with my Parisian friends! I still have so many spots and secrets to share but here are some photos of the most recent places i’ve discovered. If you need any suggestions for your visit to Paris, don’t hesitate to ask me! Maybe I will write a book about Paris someday, what do you think? Yay or nah? Let me know and leave a comment! Bisous x
What if the most popular and iconic fashionista of all times visits the fashion capital of the world? Right, Paris creates a huge exposition in Musée Des Arts Décoratifs. My niece and I visited the Barbie exposition. It brought back good memories of our childhood because we used to play with the barbies together. We had so much fun that day at the expo, throwback time!
In Paris you find many conceptstores in the fashion field. My favorite one is Merci which is located in the 3th arrondissement. It is my favorite because when you enter it’s like a big house. The experience inside is amazing. They sell fashion, interior accessories, stationary, gadgets and books, all in one. Last time when i was there, they had an African print theme and the classic old red Fiat 500 had a new style. The clothes they sell are from their own brand Merci, Isabel Marant and many other cool French brands. The interior section is really big! I’m an interior junkie as well and they have a lot of cool stuff such as industrial lamps and nice tableware. If you are at Merci, I’d recommend you to take your time to see all the amazing stuff they sell on all the three floors!

Salut tout le monde! Here’s a little story about a couple of must-see’s and just some nice pictures to share with you. Previous week, we had some really sunny but also rainy days. So I either went out to discover new places and enjoy the city or I had to stay inside and work on motivation letters. Sometimes when I cycle through Paris, I have to stop to take a photo of a cute corner or from just a nice terrace. Never think: Oh never mind I will go back later, NO! Stop and grab your phone or camera. Here are some photos from my Instagram with a little explanation. Bisous!
Last few days it was so rainy in Paris, but this weekend will be sunny (so they say). I told a french waiter that I had the feeling I was in Holland, because the Dutch people are used to a lot of wind and rain. What Parisian people surprises the most, is that Dutchies always ride their bikes, even when it’s raining haha! It is our main form of transport. I took some photos last week before the sky turned into one big grey cloud. I can’t wait to enjoy spring and relax in Jardin du Luxembourg with some french (study)books and magazines. I’m lucky it is so close to my place, just a few minutes away!
One thing I really like about Paris is the architecture, I can’t stop taking pictures of buildings. Every street corner has something special and romantic. I always wonder how people have decorated those big apartments. Nearly all apartment buildings are decorated with carefully styled ornaments and have beautiful wrought iron balconies which give this special look which is so typical for Paris.
Hi everyone! Spring has started and I can’t wait to wear different clothes in stead of all those long warm wollen coats. I took some photos last week at Place Saint-Sulpice for a ‘Look of the day‘ for Amayzine.com. I’ve put on my leather jacket (which has been waiting in the closet for too long closet) with my cosy Levi’s jeans and sneakers. I made this t-shirt myself, which was easy and fun to make! I bought the letters at Marché Saint Pierre in the 18th arr. A funny fact I’ve discovered there, is that many parisian women wear their cross bags under their jackets/coats. It’s not only safer, it is in my opinion also more stylish to wear!

One of the places I recently discovered in the 6th was Huguette at Rue de Seine. This ‘bistro de la mer’ is always full of people who are enjoying a nice plate of oysters, fish & chips, mussels with fries or a good pasta vongole. They have got a extensive choice of wine too! You can also get wine and oysters ‘to go’ if you want, but having dinner there is a treat! In the afternoon their terrace is in the sun and it feels like you’re at the Côte d’Azur for a couple of hours. I photographed the decoration of Huguette, because I like the clean style with a mix of a couple of old things like the menu plates and their white tiles. The architect did a really good job! A tout suite!

Bonjour mes chéries! Here’s a little story about a couple of must-see’s and just some nice pictures to share with you. Believe me, when you are visiting Paris there is so much more to see than only the Avenue Champs-Élysees and Ladurée. Paris is so big and even I still discover new places! Here some photos from my Instagram with a little explanation. Bisous!
Ciao Bella’s! I’ve made a selection of my favorite looks of Milan fashion week. What I like about Italian fashion is that it’s outrageous and colorful. The prints, the materials and the shapes are always a good mix and in balance.
At the ready-to-wear show last September, I’d waited outside to see everybody walking out after the Dior show. It was so cool to see everybody in real life! This year I decided to go again. This time I was at another exit where I saw a couple of models walk out after the show. Some of them are making a real moment of fame of it, they pose really cool and take snapchats with all the street style photographers which is quite funny. I shot some pictures too and after that I went to the main exit. When a big star walks out, there are maybe 50 photographers running to them to take a good shot. In my opinion it is funnier to look from a distance to see all the madness!

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! It’s not christmas, this time it’s fashion week in Paris! Tomorrow all the madness begins: models, street style photographers, celebrities, editors, journalists and bloggers who are all running from show to show. Every half an hour or hour another show starts and most of the time it runs out. It is so cool to see all those people in real life with the most stylish and beautiful outfits, I always get inspired by it. I’ve followed the last shows from Milan, London and NY and the street style pics of Phil Oh on vogue.com.
I’m a very lucky girl, I will attend a couple of shows this week with a Dutch friend of mine. Last fashion week I went to the presentation of A.F. Vandevorst, which was also really cool to see. I will keep you posted about it on Instagram! Bisous!
