Own Style: 
 I like to mix up different styles, colors, prints, old and new clothes, in or out of fashion. As long as i feel good in it, like it and suits my body well.  My style is feminine, edgy, sexy and playful.  I love prints and extraordinary shoes!

Another tip of the day; Life is too short to wear boring clothes.

Bad Buy: Birkenstock sandals make my feet look huge ;-)
Ultimate Styling Tip: Never mind if it's in fashion at the time or not; express yourself with it. No matter what your age is. You can always look fabulous if you wear what you are. 

Once in a while you meet someone who always sticks in your mind and crosses you path.
Meriam is one of those people for me. I see her as a confident beautiful single mom of two little boys.
She is the kind of girl that stays true to herself, strives for pure love, happiness and good food.
Very inspiring and a great example!
And she has the best 80' & 90' earring collection you have ever seen.
Ahhh push it, push it good. Rembember Salt N Peppa? Aghum.. that reveals our age a bit to much :-)
I want me a pair! sorry I can't help myself!

Thank you Meriam for opening up yourself, your closet and your home to me.
Next time the coffee is on me.

Bisou Anna
