Mon amie la rose


Catherine Deneuve in 'Les parapluies de Cherbourg' via Pictures.

Dear readers,

First of all, I would like to thank you for reading my blog. But I won't be back to blogging just yet. Life is rather hectic these days and I'm not sure if I have enough ideas to keep this blog running. Maybe I'll give it a shot again sometime, next year. In the meantime I would like to direct you to my tumblr
'the other way'. I started a style tumblr a couple of months ago. You can find pictures I find inspiring fashion and beauty wise over there. Occasionaly I'll post an outfit photo too.

I hope you're all having a lovely christmas and I'd like to wish everyone a great 2012!

I've reached over 1000 followers via blogger , I would like to thank you all for following! However, I'm going to take a (short) break from blogging. I don't feel as if my blog has anything to offer in any way(anymore). Thereby, I'm kind of fed up with blogs, although I still very much enjoy reading the blogs I follow, most other blogs seem to have become rather repetitive, and therefore dull. I feel like my blog is one of them.
I'm not sure when I will get back to blogging, I don't even know if I will ever get back to blogging at all. Could be in a week, a month, or never again, we'll see...

Well, take care, and enjoy the rest of your holiday!

PS. You're all very welcome to visit my tumblr, the only blog I will keep on updating.

I'll be prancin' around in my high heels, and your cherry red lipstick

I really do love a red lipstick. Remember when I bought a bright pink lipstick a few months ago? I've never used it. Whenever I feel like wearing lipstick I go for a red one. I just don't feel like 'myself' when trying another colour. Same goes for perfume and nailpolish. I've been thinking of changing my perfume, but I always go back to Miss Dior Cherie. And I only wear red polish on my nails. It might seem silly, but I like having only one scent/colour to go for. I love the idea of having a signature scent/look, and I think I'm slowly achieving that 'goal'.

Why won't you wear your new trenchcoat?







click here for sources

I think these pictures pretty much prove that the trenchcoat is a classic. And worth investing in. While I'm not ready to invest in a trenchcoat from Burberry or A.P.C. yet, mine from Zara's kidsdepartment will do for now.

Ps. Thank you all for the kind birthday wishes! The Harry Potter marathon was tough but awesome and quite sad too.

EDIT: After trying the Zara coat on for the 100th time I decided to return it. I'm not fully satisfied with the fit. It has kind of an a-line shape and the back's pleated. I guess I'd better start saving up then!

10072011

It was my birthday yesterday! We went out for a walk in the afternoon and later on we went to a Japanese restaurant, which was quite an experience. Shabu-shabu isn't really my kind of dish, but it wasn't bad either. Last but not least, we watched Rango, a film my younger sister and I wanted to see for a long time, and we weren't left dissapointed! I had a really nice day.
A quick photo of my birthday outfit:
A.P.C. shirt, custom made black skirt, my sisters Converse

At midnight my mom and I will head to the cinema for a serious Harry Potter marathon! I'm super excited and also a little sad to see the final movie.
Well, see you on Wednesday, at least if I'm not exhausted from watching HP movies for 27 hours, haha.

Uniform look



zara linen tee, calvin klein bra, seiko watch, chanel lipstick, cheap monday jeans, isabel marant ankleboots

This has practically been my uniform look the last four weeks: slightly tousled hair, black eyeliner, raspberry lipstick dapped lightly on lips, miss dior cherie perfume, silver bracelet(now replaced by my new watch), black lace bra, black tee, black jeans and my suede ankleboots or converse trainers.

At the moment I feel most at ease wearing just a tee and a pair of jeans, preferably in dark colours. Which might be suprising, as most people tend to wear more colourful outfits during summer? Maybe it's the weather, my empty agenda or the bad luck I had during my recent shopping trips(seriously everything I want is either in the wrong size, colour or sold out completely), but I just don't feel much like 'dressing up' anymore.

Graduation present

I graduated from high school! Thank you for all your kind comments on my previous post, I didn't do halve as bad as I imagined!
As a gradution gift, my parents gave me this watch. I love it, I've been looking for a watch like this one for ages! I've never really worn a watch, but I'm sure that'll change, now that I have this one!

Seiko SXGN56P1 watch

Something else, I'm thinking of buying a compact camera, but I haven't got the slightest idea which one, any recommendations?

Something must break

I have to admit that updating more frequently isn't going very well yet, despite blogging more often is one of the things on my 'things to do/resolutions after my finals' list. Talking about finals, this Thursday I'll hear whether I've passed or failed on my exams. To be honoust, I'm a bit nervous for the outcome. I even dreamed about it, a few nights ago. Better hope I don't have any prophetic skills, because I dreamed my testresults were horrible, haha.

Anyway, on to a different subject. Here's what I bought over the last six weeks:
Haruki Murakami - Dance Dance Dance, Saint James Minquiers shirt, Calvin Klein envy bras, Cheap Monday jeans, The Kooples ankle boots(old collection), J.D. Salinger - Nine Stories

I finally bought the Saint James shirt I talked about back in February. Although the fit is slightly different than I imagined it would be, I still like it a lot, and have already worn it a couple of times. The Cheap Monday jeans were much needed, as I only had one pair, because I absolutely dread buying jeans. They're usually either too tight, loose, the wash is off, and when I finally find a pair I like, my size is out of stock. So, I was quite happy when my size was available again on Asos. I hardly wear anything else, but this pair since I got them, due  to the stretchy fabric, they're really comfortable.
If you have hardly any cleavage (like me), I totally recommend the bras from Calvin Klein! The fit is really nice and they're super comfortable. At first, I was a bit hestitant about spending that amount of money on a bra, but they've proven to be worth their price tag.
As for the boots, I was quite lucky when I came across them on ebay! I remember wanting them very badly a few years ago, but at the time I didn't have the money to buy them. Two years later I still loved them, and I don't think I'll ever get bored with them, even after the countless polyvore sets I already made with them over the years.
I don't think I have to say much about the books. I actually enjoy buying books more than clothes. The ones I got this time are by two of my favourite authors, I really adore their writing. I'm currently reading Nine Stories and I love it so far!
Anyone who has read it? If so, what did you think of it?

La Belle Personne









I rewatched La Belle Personne recently. I forgot how much I loved it, in fact, I think I even liked it better this time. It's a wonderful yet disturbing film about love, longing, anxiety and jealousy. I think it's a pretty intense movie, I couldn't help but feel sad afterwards. Also noteworthy are the costumes, I loved every single look, as often is the case when watching French films. Oh, and Louis ofcourse, why weren't my teachers that good looking?

So this is summer







sources can be found here.


It's been a week since my last exams. They didn't go as well as I hoped, I already regret not studying better. I still don't fully realize I'm done with high school, at least I hope I am...
My summer will consist out of work, books and lots of films. I actually made a 'summer reading list' a while ago, click
here to view.
My life is so exciting.

What are your plans for this summer?

Psycho Killer


petit bateau jumper, h&m skirt and the kooples ankle boots



mango shirt, custom made skirt and zara loafers



hema jumper, zara trousers and loafers


navy jumper benetton, custom made skirt and zara loafers



Just a quick post before I get back to studying. I'll be so relieved when my finals are over! I'll have lots of free time soon, which means I'll be able to update more often.


I got the skirt in the second and fourth picture custome made. It didn't turn out exactly the way I wanted to(I really need to be more clear and specific when explaining what I want), but I like it anyway, until I brought it to another seamstress to make it slightly longer. After wearing the skirt for two days, I felt like it was a bit too short which made me feel uncomfortable, that's why I took it to a seamstress. But it didn't turn out right, the hem looks kind of flimsy(?) now. So, I'm taking it back tomorrow to get it fixed.
(The photos were taken before I got it hemmed.)

Confusion in her eyes that says it all














Christy Turlington by Steven Meisel for Vogue Italia October 1989

I love how timeless these photos are. Although they're over 20 years old, they could've been published in a magazine today. Oh, and Christy is utterly gorgeous!
I finally have a week of vacation. Sadly enough, I have to study for my finals.


For the ones who wanted to know, I went to see Never Let Me Go yesterday, and I really liked the movie. I thought it was a beautiful and sad movie, I almost cried during some scenes.

Les tenues de cette semaine



hema jumper, zara skirt, isabel marant boots



h&m cardigan, vanessa bruno athé dress, im boots




zara kids breton top, comptoir de cotonniers skirt, im boots



petit bateau breton, zara skirt, im boots




Last week an anonymous reader asked me to post some photos of me wearing my marant boots, so here they are! I'm sorry for the crappy quality though, my little sister hates to take photos and I can't seem to find a good place to use selftimer.
The weather has been pretty wonderful, so far, this week, it feels great to be able to go out bare legged again!
I have a party tonight and the dresscode is white. I hardly have any white clothing, so I guess I'll just wear my white silk blouse with the brown leather skirt pictures above, and my marant boots or white chucks.
I actually don't feel like going at all. Right now, I'd much rather stay at home and watch two awesome movies which will be on tv tonight.


Oh well, I guess I'll just go to the party, I can always go back home and then I might even be on time for Eastern Promises.
