Chapeau Chapeau

This fall and winter we can all wear hats again.
I actually hope that this trend be stay for a decade, like in the old days.
When it was normal/ etiquette to wear hats and gloves when you left your home.

These inspiring pictures are from the Italian Flair with Dutch model Ilonka
Represented by Tjarda Model Management in Amsterdam

I am convinced to see more hats, fedoras, chapeaus and barrets on the streets this F/W2012

Enjoy your weekend!

Pearls & headband!

I am a real sucker for skirts and dresses as you might know by now.
This one by Mada van Gaans (also seen here) and is one of my favorites in my closet.
Tried to give this look an 20s feel with the headband,
wich actually is a belt from an old dress by my moms. 
Unfortunately the dress is gone, but I still have the belt and a picture :-)
This picture was taken in 1982 and she was 30 years old.
(doing a performance on a party)

Because I really wanted to wear my pearls today in this post, I built the look around them.
I am very much in love with this string of pearls, because they were a gift from my BFF Josje.
She said.... "I just couldn't leave them hanging there in the store, knowing you needed them".
Every girl needs a string of pearls!!
Lucky me :-)
T is an H&M basic, leather clutch by ZARA, Heels by Chloé

Ultimate Styling Tip: Don't underestimate the power of a great pair of jeans. The perfect jeans combined with a powerful blazer and killer heels makes you feel on top of the world!

I am very honored that Froukje let me in her house and "Closet"
She never did that before, not for any fashion magazine or glossy.
And that makes this post extra special.
