It’s all about shoes

This evening is the end of a perfect weekend. I went to the exposition S.H.O.E.S  in Rotterdam. I was amazed by the many different types of shoes. If you have the chance, you should really visit Kunsthal Rotterdam. You’ll see a collection of shoes you haven’t seen before; from shoes in an old Victorian style to the creations of Iris van Herpen. Oh yeah and I saw the one and only Manolo’s that Carrie wore in SATC! Pretty cool.
It was a true ‘Heaven’ for all the shoe addicts. But then I felt my credit card burn in my pocket and I knew there was only one thing to do after visiting this exposition: shopping!

I jumped in the tram to get me to the nearest Zara (what can I say; I’m addicted). I think I succeeded, cause I bought this black beauties. After looking for these kind of shoes – what felt like a decade – I’m glad I can finally add them to my collection.

The other day of the weekend, my best friend came over for a lazy Sunday. Together we watched Sex and the City. Which completed the whole ‘shoe-theme’.

OUTFIT / spring is coming

Wow, this was such a lovely day. It really feels like Spring is coming. As we say in Dutch: ‘Ik heb de lente in mijn bol’.
And when Spring is coming, I need to have my spring-outfits ready for action!

So today I started with a black/grey outfit, but spiced it up with a colorful necklage and a light coat.
Actually I’m wearing black all year long, because I simply can not live without.

I really love Spring, you feel more energetic when you’re waking up and you already hear birds sing. It’s like they sing for you and the sun is already shining. Best way to start your day! Don’t let anyone or anything ruin that.

Outfit / Sunday, leggings day

Yesterday, it was the perfect Sunday. Some shopping, having a nice lunch, spending time with the boyfriend and family.
And what is a better way to do it, then doing it in a comfortable outfit?!

I am not really a leggings person, but my velvet one from Modstrøm is just to comfi to resist. Combine it with a long top or blouse to make sure that you don’t get the leggings-wanna-be-trousers effect. This day I wore it with a blouse from Sandro Paris.

Have a good start of the week everyone!

INSPIRATION / Gareth Pugh

This collection needs to be shared with the world! Woowie, Gareth Pugh did it again. Below you’ll see his creations of the show during Paris Fashion Week Fall 2014. Why do we need a silk dress if we can have a wedding dress consisting of plastic?! And hallo, who doesn’t want to look like a huge tissue-ball? Very creative show, let’s all see it as an inspiration (sort of).

Home sweet home

They always say: ‘it is good to be home’. Well, I will not agree. After seeing this beautiful country, I wasn’t ready to go back home yet. South-Africa has a lot of diversity and I really enjoyed every minute of my stay. I didn’t had much time to write any posts while being there. That’s why I’ll now share some of my outfits I wore during my holiday.

I enjoyed wearing shorts and skirts each day. It was such a nice weather. Guess I’m doing something terribly wrong by living in the Netherlands…

I hope you like the outfits! For now it’s time to work-out, I will be like a hamster on a treadmill. I seriously can’t wait to burn the food I ate.. really..

Next destination: South-Africa

Tomorrow I’ll leave the Netherlands for what it is and start my journey to South-Africa. The last few days I’ve been busy with packing my bags and preparing for this trip. Luckily I didn’t cross the maximum weight of luggage. That’s great, cause now I can pack an extra pair of shoes yeayy! I can not wait to step on that airplane tomorrow morning. I am finally seeing my best friend again. I’ll try to share a photo each day via Instagram, so make sure you’re following @klaverwendy.

OUTFIT / black and white

Did I mention how much I love black and white? Well, I simply can’t think about living without the black and white combination. It’s simple, sophisticated, classic, chic. Sometimes it is everything you need.

To complete the outfit for a nice dinner, just wear a very nice, very big necklace. You know it’s a good one, when it is almost to heavy to wear!

OUTFIT / details of the day

This was my last working day before my vacation to South-Africa. It’s freezing outside, perfect time to fly away. I am really looking forward to it and now the only thing I have to do is packing my suitcase (and trying to put my things in my boyfriends suitcase). Let’s see if that’ll work out!

For this last day at work I am wearing a blazer with pied-de-poule design from SuperTrash. I’m having this blazer for years, but still loving it. I am combining the blazer with black coated trousers. Combining these textures gives it an elegant but powerful look.

OUTFIT / details of the day

I just can’t seem to stop matching these tartan trousers (also seen  here). I love the black-white combination and today I wore a shirt with linen and lace from Sandro Paris (same as here). I am not really a winter person, so since it was freezing outside I needed my cashmere friend.

INSPIRATION/ Couture Elie Saab

Monday is Inspiration-day I know, but I couldn’t wait any longer to share the photos from the couture show of Elie Saab.

It is truly beautiful, like I landed in a fairy tale. Those dresses, the fabrics, lace, flowers, glitter, colors. Everything is perfect. From girlish pink to mysterious black, I love all details of every piece. If only I had an occasion to wear a dress like that…

INSPIRATION / pretty pink

It is time to take all your pink clothes out of the closet and wear them the coming period.
We hear the same sentence every season: ‘black is the new black’. Well, that is very true. But, we can add a new color to this sentence: pink. And with pink I mean; from head-to-toe pink. These designers made it pretty clear that this color is not only for little girls. So if you see something pink, walking around in Amsterdam. That will be me.

Make a feminine and powerful statement with this color, ladies.
