I just bought this beautiful caftan dress and I had to share it with you as I love it that much. A caftan is a summer must-have, it is comfortable and versatile as you can wear it to the beach or to a night out. This one is from Emerson, a brand known for stylish and good quality fashion items.

You might have seen Vanessa Bruno’s home before but the pastel colors in this Paris home remind me of Spring. As this season is around the corner (we have had a lovely day here yesterday!) I thought that it was a good time to show you this apartment with feminine touches again. Model-turned-designer Vanessa Bruno is known for her sophisticated tailoring and feminine pastel colors. At the end of the post you can see a selection of her beautiful designs.

humanoid-2014-7

Humanoid’s summer collection is now available; some of the dresses (the black and white striped dress for example) made it straight to the top of my wish list. Humanoid is a Dutch womenswear label with a cosmopolite, effortlessly and feminine style. Their designs are always stylish but comfortable at the same time.

I love hats! With this versatile accessory you can turn a cardigan, t-shirt and jeans into a bohemian chic outfit. My favorite styles are the floppy hat and the Fedora style hats that are very fashionable at the moment. Today’s post features some examples on how to wear these hats. Looking for a nice hat? I found these affordable ones online: felt wool floppy hat, oversized fedora hat, felt rancher, leather trimmed rancher, floppy hat with leather strap, Tigerlilly floppy hat, navy felt wool fedora and panama style hat.

It is winter but I have summer on my mind. Coral is definitely a summer color and I love this open back dress from &Other Stories. The fitted waist gives the silhouette an ultra feminine twist. The good news is that it reasonably priced (75 EUR).

FRIDAY’S FASHION FILES: O MY BAG AT MINT

omybag1

One of my favorite bags I own is the Sleazy Jane from Dutch fashion brand O My Bag. Not only do I like the bag as it is stylish as well as functional, but I also like the philosophy and values of the brand. O My Bag supports the concept of ‘Trade, Not Aid’, which means part or all of a company’s supply chain involves trade in a country with a struggling economy. At the end of this month O My Bag will be presenting a range of new products during the Dutch fashion fair “Modefabriek” in Amsterdam. They will be present at MINT, a unique tradeshow event (part of the Modefabriek) which aims to inspire towards a fashion scene that is both happening and harmless. MINT offers forward fashion: amazing style, made with respect for people and our environment.
