2019 is all about getting more transparant for me. I want to be more personal with you, talking about my private life a bit more and get to know you better as well. I realised I always keep things at a distance in the digital world, but in real life it’s definitely not the case. I think it’s because it’s kind of weird to tell personal stuff to a ‘screen’, instead of a person who’s sharing the same room as you. But hey, let’s just give it a try. New year, new me, here I am :P Lately I’ve been a bit absent from everything. I think I owe you an explanation of that. Some might know, other’s might not, but I’m running my own content creation agency besides blogging. It’s my fulltime job for three years now, and I am enjoying it to the fullest. It’s the best freedom you can have: being your own boss and to decide who you want to work with and who not, when you are working ánd where …
Lately I’ve been living in my puffer coat. It’s not only super warm but also looks cozy AF. Some people will never understand this style and throw questions at me like: ‘why are you wearing your bed cover’, or ‘jacket where are you taking the girl?’. Something with Dutch people and fasjun. But seriously, it’s a lifesaver during wintertime. I paired it up with an adidas performance track pants and my New Balance runners. This must be the most comfortable outfit ever if you ask me :) Wearing | H&M puffer coat | adidas performance track pants | New Balance 990 GL3 sneakers | Susan Bijl Nylon bag |
2016, a year full of sneaker heat flew by. I made a roundup of all the pairs I’ve collected this year and seriously, I think I did a hell of a good job. I invested only in the ones that are timeless and clean, and still make a statement. No more pairs for a day, but for a lifetime instead. And last but not least: there’s a final pair I didn’t showed yet.. the last pair of 2016, scroll through to find out more! Wishing you all a happy New Year and hope to see ya ass again in 2017 :)! xx adidas Gazelle Axel Arigato Velocity Nike Air Max Plus Satin Puma x Stampd Blaze of Glory Nike Air Presto New Balance 990 adidas NMD R1 Puma by Rihanna Creeper by Rihanna Zign Puma Suede Platform Elemental Sandro Paris Velcro Trainer *Tadaaa* Puma by Rihanna Velvet Creeper
Moscow designer & photographer Gosha Rubchinskiy got asked by GQ Germany to shoot the New Balance 990V3 sneaker style and the results are beyond! Rubchinskiy, who stocks from street style shops to high-end boutiques like Dover Street Market and Tres Bien, takes the shoe to a whole new level. We can see the sneaker in a Soviet’ish setting – something the designer’s known for – styled with some serious normcore aesthetics. We have to thank Sam Jarou & Veneda Anastasia for that, as they took over the editorial’s styling & art direction. The team succeeds in proving that the sneaker needs nothing more than a basic ensemble to be an absolute stand-out.
