Plastic Fantastic with G-Star's - Raw For The Oceans -

October 21, 2014

Location: Zandvoort Beach, The Netherlands



TRY OUT




Hey everyone

 How do you like the coolest denim jacket I am wearing? Well, here is a surprise for you.  This piece was created from a bionic yarn, which is derived from ocean plastic waste.  Plastic waste are ruining our beautiful oceans and who would have thought denim could be created from that same plastic?

 Denim brand: G-star Raw came up with the help of the fabulous Pharrell Williams to create a denim line made purely out of ocean plastic with a purpose to save our beautiful oceans. When I spotted their collection online, I was surprised to find out that apart of a great purpose, it is absolutely fantastic to wear too!

I am a fierce lover of the oceans, and it breaks my heart that we are totally polluting it, so why not create something that can help this issue?  For example, did you know there are six times more plastic waste floating in the oceans than there is sea life? Fish and other ocean creatures eat away from the plastic waste with disastrous results of their extinction

 When I saw Pharrell Williams being interviewed on a national televised Dutch talk show and talking about this project, all I could think of was that I wanted to help spread the word for this amazing cause. Turning something negative into fashion. How great is that?  When I thought of shooting this piece, I could only come up with one location, and that is exactly where it came it from.  I took it straight back to the ocean. To make a statement,  I jumped into the icy cold water with winds at wind force 7. With Sunday, beach crowds gathering around us probably thinking I was completely nuts this was quite a memorable shoot, but hey it's all for a good cause right?

Fall Party

October 13, 2014

Happy Monday everyone


The best fall days are the ones that still feel like summer, but with a certain breeze of crisp air.  In today's post, it's one of those days. Warm, sunny and golden leaves are falling from the trees. I absolutely love it. The golden colors are so magical, and it is great to bundle up in a cozy poncho like the one I am wearing from Sheinside right here. The colors reminded me of the fall, so that's is the reason it was love at first sight.

Me being one mixing colors all the time I thought I could do something different and keep the rest of the outfit all black making the poncho really pop and stick out this way.  I made sure the look had some texture going on by choosing the flowing top with silver thread detailing.
 

Fall is, of course, thé reason to get those tall boots out and like I promised I will show you multiple ways on how to wear them over the next few months. Over the knee boots pair perfectly with a poncho because it creates a very interesting silhouette. It makes you appear taller and slimmer, especially if you wear the jeans or pants in the same color. Now isn't this something we all want?

Sleeve Tied

Hey everyone 



I am so sorry I have been absent for a week on this blog you guys. Last week I came down with a bit of a stomach flu.  This explains my lack of posting because all I could do was  lying on a couch drinking gallons of tea and holding movie marathons on HBO.  I was totally bummed out about it, especially as I wanted to shoot a real fabulous post on the beach last Saturday. Last weekend was probably the last warm  days of this summer here and with the weather cooling off quickly I am not sure if I will be able to do this beach shoot anytime soon. I guess I will have to submit myself to freezing in the water next week and pretend it's warm. Let's pray for some good weather, because I am anxious sharing this one with you all.  The good news is; I am back and healthy again and not going anywhere.

For today's post I am wearing a fierce red biker jacket which has been one of my absolute favorites ever since I got it about a year ago. The color red is hot for fall 2014. For me a great reason to keep holding on to this piece. that matches almost every outfit I can think of. I added this cool sleeve tie skirt for a casual sporty vibe but kept it chic by adding strapped heels and a crisp white blouse. I finished the look with a indigo blue hat.  For me a fun way of mixing different styles.

What do you think?

Hey everyone


There is one good thing about the fall season, and that is the fact I will be able to throw on my over-the-knee boots again, yay!.  With the sporty trend going on at the moment, I thought it would be fun to pair these black suede sexy numbers with this sweater dress including a text that's me all over LOL.

Being a true Cali girl, I couldn't resist grabbing this cool piece as soon as I spotted it. The fun quote makes me miss L.A. just a little bit less, hmm only just a little.
