Breaking: Model Off-Duty Andreea Diaconu is Lookbook girl for Isabel Marant A\W '14

NEWS on

We've swooned over her in Parisian Vogue and taken endless inspiration from her model off-duty street style in The Sartorialist, now Andreea Diaconu is stealing our hearts once more in landing Isabel Marant's A\W '14 Lookbook. Model excitement (temporarily) over - let's talk clothes. We all saw the collection sashay down the runway in Paris back in February, but seeing them in 'actual' wear is like seeing a whole new collection. As we knew to expect, natural earthy tones win the theme. Brown pigments mixed with faux furs, silks, cream knit and, of course, the signature wedged sneaker. How could we forgot Anja Rubik's look in nuetral floral silk?! Well cue Andreea giving the collection an entirely new edge with slouched silhouettes (tick), earth-toned heavy knits (tick) and oversized man-pants (tick, tick, tick).

Playing Favorite With My Shoes (You Too?)

By Fashion Hoax on

NL Voor deze post (eigenlijk voor alle moment in het leven, maar dat terzijde) quote ik graag Carrie Bradshaw: I don't play favorites with my shoes, but these where very special ones. Als schoenenliefhebber mag je inderdaad niet het een boven het ander kiezen. Elk paar schoenen heeft zijn eigen speciale waarde, zoals mijn Nike Air Vortex-jes waarmee ik heel New York heb rondgelopen en mijn vintage Chanel heels. Dat hoef ik niet verder toe te lichten.  Maar laten we wel wezen, sommige schoenen zijn op bepaalde moment wel echt je favoriet. Voor mij zijn dat mijn luipaard slip-ons en Topshop muiltjes. Dat moet geen verassing zijn voor iedereen die me volgt. Mijn Instagram staat vol met de slip-ons en ik heb maandag een ode geschreven aan de muiltjes. Dat betekent wat mij betreft niet dat ze nog even wat extra aandacht verdienen! Maar vertel, wat zijn jouw favoriete schoenen op dit moment? ENG For this post I'd like to quote Carrie Bradshaw:I don't play favorites with my shoes, but these where very special ones. As a true shoelover, you can't play favorite. Some shoes have a special value, like my Nike Air Vortex' I wore all over New York or my vintage Chanel heels. No explaination needed there ;-) But let's be honest, every season you have a favorite pair of shoes. For me these are my leopard slip-ons and Topshop mules. Which shouldn't be a suprise for everyone following me on  So tell me, what are your favorite shoes at the moment?   TOPSHOP leather mules W CONCEPT leopard slip-ons   Stay updated & stay in touch: instagram | bloglovin | facebook | pinterest.

Shorts for SS14: Buy, Keep & Destroy

By Fashion Hoax on

  FRONT ROW SHOP city shorts | NEW LOOK culottes NELLY leather shorts | FOREVER 21 distressed shorts H&M colored shorts | ZALANDO skorts BUY Bermuda / City shorts (just above the knee)  When I wear these shorts, I get a lot of “What the hell is she wearing?!” looks. Appearently this male trend takes some getting used to. But I like wearing manly items so spice up an outfit. I’m very pro city shorts! Culottes (below the knee) Again with the knees. It’s official, short shorts are a no-go, we’ll be working the long shorts this season. You might put culottes in the trousers section. Yes, they’re quite long, but they should be below the knee and not just above the ankle. I say they’re shorts. Fabulous shorts, I love them. KEEP Distressed Shorts Can you ever go wrong with distressed? I’m so happy this trend keeps on being trendy. A distressed short makes any basic outfit (which a summer outfit often is) a bit more edgy. I like them best when they’re high waisted, oversized and curled-up. Think Levi’s shorts. Oversized Leather Shorts I love leather and I love oversized. If this the oversized leather shorts weren't still trendy, I’d wear them anyway! DESTOY Skorts Last years Zara skort trend caused hate for skorts for me. I’m so over it, no skorts for me this year. Especially not the assymetric skort. Any one interested in my Zara skort?! ;-) Colored hotpants Appearently they were spotted at Coachella, but I think hotpants are a no-go. Especially colored ones. And I told you, it’s al about long short. I’m not gonna fight and neither will my cellulite ;-)   Bermuda :Shorts at Shopbop Current/Elliott Shorts Free People Shorts

At the Ulanka Flagship store opening

By COCOCHIC on

photo credit | personal & ulanka THIS time last week I was trying on shoes and pigging out with the likes of Carrie, Tamara and Andreea whilst at Ulanka's first UK  flagship opening on 153 Oxford St. To say I fell head over heels (sorry, had to) would be an understatement. In the cold, rainy streets of London the (warm!) Spanish retailer stood out from miles away - or maybe that was just the Mediterranean food that that guided me. Either way, I couldn't wait to step inside.  Offering well-known labels and personal favourites such as Vans, Converse and Birkenstock, Ulanka also sells a selection of shoes exclusive to their label. If you havn't already taken a sneak peak at my new shoes in my latest outfit, here's a little spoiler for you: I came home with the Natural Sur zebra flats. Ya rly. Me. In espadrilles. It's now a thing apparently. And trust me, I'll be coming back for the leopard pair (and about fourteen other pairs of shoes) soon enough.

Easter Weekend

By Lellavictoria on

  Yes, I know i'm a day out but Happy Easter! I'm not sure if it's the same anywhere else but here in the UK we have a bank holiday Monday, which makes our Easter weekend even longer :D Anyway, here are a few photos I snapped over the weekend via my iPhone. (apart from the Happy Easter Egg photos, that was through Pinterest) The weather was lovely Friday and Saturday but yesterday it rained all day, which I guess was okay because I was pretty tired after the bbq we had on the saturday, lets just say I enjoyed a few tequilas!    Well, I really hope you have all been enjoying your Easter Weekend.

The Perfect Place To Get Affordable Beauty Treatments With Your Girlfriends

By Fashion Hoax on

NL Lijkt het je niet heerlijk om je een dagje te laten verwennen met vriendinnen? Vaak kost zo'n verwendag echter een vermogen en moet je kiezen tussen of een gezichtbehandeling of een zonnebankje of stylingadvies.. Oftewel het een of het ander. Dat hoeft dus niet bij Mooi Onder Eén Kap, waar ik twee weken geleden was met onder andere Rowan.  Het fijne is niet alleen dat je vanalles kunt laten doen, Mooi Onder Eén Kap werkt met menukaarten waar je voor €9,95 een behandeling kunt kiezen. Zo weet je precies wat je kwijt bent, plus het is niet duur. Ik heb bijvoorbeeld een gezichtbehandeling gehad, een spraytan en een detox workshop. Ik voelde heerlijk na afloop. Het mag dan in Apeldoorn zijn, maar het is zeker de moeite (en reistijd) waard. Gelukkig gaan ze uitbreiden en zitten ze binnenkort oon in het Noorden en Westen van het land. Waaronder Groningenm whoohoo! Neem van mij aan, dit is perfect voor een vriendinnendag! ENG If your ever in Holland with girlfriends and you want to relax and spoile yourself after a day of exploring our country, please go to Mooi Onder Eén Kap. In English it means something like "Get beautiful in one place" and it's a beauty/hair/style salon. They offer different beauty treatment for a good price. They work with a menu where can pick several treatments that cost €9,95, which is very affordable. I got myself a facial, spraytan and detox workshop. And I felt relaxed and reborn! It's in East Holland (Apeldoorn), but believe me, it's worth the trip.   Stay updated: instagram | bloglovin | facebook | pinterest. See you there and have a happy easter! Love Lian.

Good Friday! Now leave me alone I have three days left..

By Anouk Yve on

  [eng] Goodmorning to you on this lovely sunny Good Friday. I hope you're enjoying your morning latte/tea/water with lemon and cayenne pepper (8 weeks till bikini time remember) and I sure hope you have a long and relaxed Easter weekend ahead of you. I do... Today at two o'clock a part of my family will arrive and I've made them a promiss not to lay hands on this laptop for 3 whole days. Yep you've heard that right. I even had to sign a contract (I know it's bad). We will be visiting London, eat chocolate Easter eggs and on Monday we're celebrating my 30th and my dad's 61th (I was born on my dad's birthday).  But before I take a much needed Easter break I have one more look with you to share in partnership with Liu Jo. It's a nonchalant look at first sight but I've tried to add some hidden mystery to it. Yes I have left my shirt open, I think it's beautiful to flash some skin (and lingerie). And remember, leather jackets are so much cooler with their sleeves rolled up.  Now leave me in peace would ya. I have 3 more days left in my twenties. I think I will take breakfast with Baileys today (although far from bikini friendly).    Ps 1: Who wants to bet I can't leave my laptop alone till Tuesday? (chances are you win) Ps 2: Isn't that dog hilarious?    Happy Easter!   [nl] Goedemorgen op deze prachtige zonnige Goede Vrijdag. Ik hoop dat jullie genieten van een lekkere bak koffie/kop thee/water met citroensap en cayenne peper (8 weken te gaan voordat we weer in de bikini moeten vandaar). En nog meer hoop ik dat jullie een mooi lang Paas weekend tegemoet gaan. Ik wel in ieder geval.. Vandaag klokslag twee verwelkom ik mijn familie uit Nederland en ik heb hen moeten zweren mijn laptop met rust te laten voor 3 hele dagen. Yes, dat heb je goed gelezen. Ik heb er zelfs een contract voor moeten tekenen. Geen werkdruk, maar een dagje Londen, een lang uitgebreid Paas ontbijt en als kers op de taart maandag mijn 30ste verjaardag.  Maar voordat ik er tijdelijk tussen uit knijp heb ik nog één look voor je in petto in samenwerking met Liu Jo. Een nonchalante look dit keer, maar wel eentje met een aantal verborgen lagen. Ik vind het prachtig als een outfit net iets sexier is dan je op het eerste oog kunt zien. En vergeet vooral niet de mouwen van je leren jasje op te stropen. Staat zoveel cooler (vind ik).  Nou, laat me nu met rust. Ik heb nog precies 3 dagen in mijn twintiger jaren over. Ik denk dat ik straks cornflakes met Baileys neem, altijd al willen doen. (hoewel niet echt bikini vriendelijk) Ps 1: Wedden dat ik 3 dagen zonder laptop toch niet red? Ps 2: Die hond doet het hem.    wearing JACKET | Liu Jo SHIRT | Liu Jo JEANS | Liu Jo HEELS | Zara NECKLACES | & Other Stories   Vrolijk Pasen!
