Enjoying the weekend en getting that bit of rest that my body and soul needs at the moment.. Just watching some old movies and surfing through the internet.
One more week before my study starts again so I better enjoy the time now when I can sleep out then the 05.30 I have to get up for school. I am not looking forward to that part but I love to go and study again and learning more about constructing clothes and design. That´s my passion!
I have to intern in Februari so that's nice to get out of the school environment and really get back to the real world. So, if someone has experienced a great internship at a designer, shoedesigner, fashionmagazine or fashion related company and knows that the company also needs interns in around Februari, please let me know!

This is yesterdays outfit, which was actually a bit cold so eventually I had to change, damn the Dutch weather. I am wearing H&M fashion against aids denim shorts, H&M trend blouse, ACNE boots and a vintage Versace backpack.

Thank you all for your support and lovely comments, my dearest readers! They really make my day! Enjoy your sunday!

Only blogger celebration party Copenhagen

As you may probably already know, I have been spending the last couple of days in Copenhagen for the Only blogger party! And I definitely had a blast! 2 days of meeting other lovely bloggers and the very wonderful Only team, talking about Only designs and blogging, drinking champagne, listening to a very good DJ, cameras everywhere. sleeping in a jungle designed room, free shopping at Only and a very well organised photoshoot where I had to use my own styling talent for the Only magazine.

Here are a couple of pics to get a small impression. More pics of the photoshoot itself are coming your way so stay tuned!

Website finally up!!

Here is the website Ive been slaving away on!

Outnet first


Well, this is actually an old story, since I received that parcel above way before my summer vacation. But, being the procrastinator I'm known to be, I had to marinate it in my drafts before actual posting. Let's get onto to the exciting story of my first order from the Outnet.

I have to point out here that (as Stella has very successfully described before, alas in Greek only) shopping at the Outnet, the official outlet of NET-A-PORTER, is no task for the faint of heart. Being constantly reminded that you have to hurry up because items inside your shopping cart are not truly yours until you pay, and that a faster and savvier e-shopper could snatch them right out of your sight while you're casually browsing the shoe section, does not a calm shopper make.

So when the newsletter came in June 15th, I was fast, ruthless and effective.

That See by Chloé silk dress on top was cute, affordable and in my size. Sold, as was the Ossie Clark fashion illustration print t-shirt. It would be a pity to be left behind.

The DHL shipping was super-fast and cost €10,70. Which is not cheap, considering it's shipping within the EU, but it is €1,30 cheaper than the €12 flat-rate DHL shipping ASOS offers for orders to Greece.

I was very pleased to notice that all the materials used for packing and shipping were recyclable or reusable.

No ugly styrofoam packaging peanuts to be seen here people, only some plain white wrapping paper that can be easily recycled and a nice reusable shopping bag, complete with sturdy handles and a zipper, that is now my laundry bag when traveling.

Now, enough with details and onto the actual clothes!

See by Chloé printed silk-crepe dress and Ossie Clark sketch-print cotton tee, fresh out of the box.

The tee was a no-brainer actually. A t-shirt printed all over with amazing fashion illustrations in full detail?

No way I was leaving this baby behind.

And then, there is the real protagonist of this post.

The dress.

A happy, almost childishly naive print in vibrant colours, super soft silk fabric, cute ruffled sleeves and at 70% off. What's not to love?

And I may have to take it in just a bit on the torso to achieve that flawless fit, but overall it was just the perfect size for me. And to tell you the truth, that was based mainly on guessing and hoping, so I'm glad it turned out well.

Overall, I am very pleased by my first Outnet experience, but I'm not ready to turn it into a regular habit just yet. I mean, 70% off designer goods is nice, but most of them are still way more expensive than what I'm willing to pay for the majority of my wardrobe's contents. But if you find that little special something that you really love in a discounted price and the newsletter comes in and it's suddenly an extra 40% off, there's little you can do to prevent the inevitable.

Have you ever shopped at the Outnet?
Are you planning to? Tell me all about it!
