I'm so sorry for the lack of updates lately. I've been so busy working in a collectionplan, businessplan and a shopplan with my group, there was no time left for updates om my blog!
At this moment i'm on my way to school for the finishing touch because tomorrow is the deadline. I'll post some photo's of the result soon.
It's already a while ago when I bought this baby from Helmut Lang because I forget to post about it but still it's worth posting after all this time. About 2 months ago I got a message from SPRMRKT that they were having a huuuuge sale with everything from €5 to €100. Ofcourse I went there with al my savings to spend but I couldn't find anything worth buying. Upstairs there was also a sale area, but the €5 -€100 didn't count there. That's where I ound this beauty. I fell in love immedeately. You see, fact is that I love fur, I love grey and I'm always cold. So mr. Lang made this jacket for me. But OMG then I saw the price, which I actually don't want to talk about because it still hurts deep inside. Eventually, to make a long story short, I took it home with me and I'm still in love with it.
If you guys also want to take a look at the outlet from SPRMRKT, then go to SPR SPECIALS at nieuwezijdsvoorburgwal 262 in Amsterdam. At the moment they also have a sale in there store on the rozengracht so take a look there as well and let me know I you bought anything!
This is the store plan I´ve made for our brand BRISK Denim. It has to be a kind of underground yet modern. The store also has to fit with our target group and the cradle to cradle concept. Luckily the teacher has approved the plan!

Lately, I'm thinking more and more about getting a tattoo. I'm thinking about getting one for several years now but this time it's serious. The only things is, I'm scared that when I get older, I'm still stuck with it. Which is the big deal about a tattoo.. However, I've found some inspiration pictures on weheartit.com which I wanted to share with you guys.
I've found the left man in a second hand shop in Amsterdam at nieuwmarkt. He fits perfectly in the concept of our new jeans brand, BRISK Denim. Our brandvalues are pure nature, dynamic, urban, quality. This goes with an urban, underground look but still has to be modern. So this man is a great catch! He has this kind of underground look and he's just himself. Looking at him makes me happy because this man doesn't follow fashion like the most of us do, but still he's in fashion. The two men on the right I found at a shop also at nieuwmarkt. I can't remeber the name anymore but I do remember that there were hanging pinguins on the sealing.. craaaazy shit, i know. They're both have the underground, urban look which I was looking for and they fit in the total picture of our brand.
I´m so busy with school lately, I´ve hardly any time for my friends, blog or just to do things for myself like going to the hairdresser or to the gym. I´m get completely stressed out when I look at my scedule and see what I have to do these two months. I´m in a group with 4 other AMFI students and we have to make a business plan for our own brand, BRISK Denim. We also have to make a shopplan, collection plan, two jeans, two knitted tops, a sample and a samplefile and sooooo much more. Understand why I´m stressed? This is just one project of many.. We also have to learn 600 pages for our fashion exam on december 14th and I'm still stuck on page 30. Oh, and we also have to make two fabric portofolio's. But hey, that was all. OH MY GOD. Even by writing this I get freaked out because I'm losing precious time. So guys, I'm sorry if I don't update that much. I'm very very very busy with my lovely school. I promise you that I'll make pictures of what I've made and I will keep you updated of my inspiration. This time is not only about fashion, but also about sustainability, store interiors and more. Everything what I'm working on at the moment. For the time being, I updated one of my favorite songs. Your body is a wonderland by John Mayer. Sometimes I pretend it's me for who he's singing for in the clip but after the song is finished I have to get back to reality.. my books. Enjoy listening and talk to ya'll later! XOXO
This sunday the BF and I went to an asian restaurant in the Hague called spiZe. It´s such a trendy place with delicious food and I can recommand it to everybody to go there! This icecream was the best part of the evening. If you would like to go there yourself, check their website.
The sample sale will take place in the United Nude flagshipstore, Spuistraat 125 from the first of December until the fifth.
A while ago my friend bumped into this fashionable men in the subway and made a sneaky picture. Too bad his head is not on the picture but I think this guy has a great style. He´s a bit of a Gstar man I think and I kinda like it. Only next time he should wear another bag. Maybe a nice leather shopper as a christmas gift. What do you guys think?
On our second day we went to the showroom of BONADEA in Osmanbey, one of the four wholesale districts of Istanbul. A showroom full of knitwear for this winter. In this district mostly arabics will buy the ready to wear collections for their stores. I saw some pieces which I really liked but it was mostly clothes from the lower segment. Though the showroom looked really trendy and modern.
- wearing green skinny zara, hat from primark, zara top and vintage fur.
Istanbul was really amazing! If I had the opportunity, I would go back next week already. We´ve seen so many beautiful things, made new friends, went clubbing and so much more. Here are some pictures to give you an impression of my fantastic four days with the girls.
This week is all about sustainability, which is a very important subject of course but I can't always keep my concentration. Therefor we have the green bitch. She keeps an eye on all of the AMFI students, if they are all acting green. It's kinda like gossip girl. Really good to come through the 'sustainable' days. Go to the green bitch to read some sustainable gossip!
Your jeans never lets you down. Everything goes with a nice jeans. Sneakers during the day for a laidback look, but if you swap them for a pair of high heels you'll get a sexy evening look. Every girl needs one in her closet. Visit the denim shop of TOPSHOP and buy yours here
The latest installation at 103 Grand Street is inspired by Alfred Hitchcock's movie The Birds, which will be playing in our store throughout the Halloween season in a black and white, silent version.

I want to recommend all of the fashionaddicts to buy these two dvd boxes from Loic Prigent. I got the black box a month ago for my 20th birthday and I couldn´t stop watching. You can feel the stress of the designers and the employees, but it made me wanting to work in the fashion scene even more. The white box is definitely on my christmas list! If you want to see them too, you can order both of the boxes at Colette here for only 36 euro. It´s really worth it!
Because I didn't know what to do on my lazy Sunday, I'm cleaning up my closet and walking around in my PJ's all day now. I found some really pretty things in my closet, but I never wear them so I decided to sell them. This is only for the dutchies because I'm selling them on marktplaats.nl. It's kinda like a dutch ebay site. I've made some pictures and adverts and my clothes are now for sale on the internet. Here's a preview. If you guys see something which you like, here's were you can buy it: marktplaats steph
