Quote: "Shoes are the thermometer of your style" Andre Lyon Tally 

I can not describe how happy I was when Glenda said yes to my "Closet question" last year. 
Finally after 5 or 6 months our schedules matched and so I drove up to her lovely home (1 hour from Amsterdam) last week. 
Six years ago when I just started doing make-up she was one of the first stylist in magazine land that booked me 
and challenged me to work with colors for our editorials. 
Every-time I saw here I was "Wow'd" by her outfits. Always color and prints and clashing them like I would never dare, 
but she pulls it off (even if she is a member of the 50's club (her words:-))
She is a Japan freak and went there lots of times to get inspired for styling jobs and her own style. 
Collects fabulous designer handkerchiefs (look at the openings picture were she stands in front of her collection), scarfs, socks and fabulous bracelets. 
Her closet is one to die for!!!!   

Dear dear Glenda thank you for sharing your insanely fabulous "closet" and drawing those amazing self-portraits :-) See you soon!

Willemijn's Closet

Willemijn Bodt 28 years old from Amsterdam

Designer/ Brands: See by Chloe,Isabel Marant, Tucker, Marlene Birger, Felder Felder, Stella McCartney, Rebecca Minkoff 
( oeh..I can not stop. To many brands I love, to many styles to love..)

Inspiration: People around me inspire me, but also beautiful images you find in magazines, on the internet or simply in the areas that surround you. Shapes and colors around me can inspire me, what I want to wear that moment, if I want to blend in or just want to stand out..

Style Icon: I Must say I admire Isabel Marant, I love her style even if I sometimes like more girlyness in my outfits. I love how she makes cool items, that always have her signature all over it. I not only admire her for that but I also think that you must be a pretty smart business woman to become where she is now..

Clothing:  dresses, skirts, blazers

Store:, I am kind of hooked on this website, they have all these great labels and when you order something beautiful, they send it nicely wrapped and in a beautiful package, what does a girl want more;)

Color: Greens, Blue’s and nudes are my favorite. I think they match the best with the color of my hair and eyes.

Fragrance: Narciso Rodriguez for her.

Own Style: Depending on my mood, but mostly bit of both worlds and mixed up. Like a nice big wool vest, cool outstanding top, nice skinny pants and cool boots, or nice dresses that outlines the best of figure. And always feminine!

Make-up: Sensai from Kanebo as foundation, mascara from 38degrees from Sensai Kanebo, blush from Bobbi brown, blot powder, bronzing powder and all eye shadows from MAC. Don’t forget some good brushes (mostly from MAC). (go to, all the best brands for less! Love this site! 
Another tip of the day;  the ‘Clarisonic Mia Sonic’ system, the best brush system to clean your face, can not live without it!)

Fashion Understatement: That when you are a bit more volumized in size you must where black or….black. I admire bigger woman who dress to impress. Let’s be honest, it’s much easier putting on something black, than something more out of the ordinary. These girls have balls!

Bad Buy: haha more than one…two..tree… I say around three per year, most items are okay but not for my figure. I pass them on to my sisters or girlfriends.

Ultimate Styling Tip: Go to the MAC store(or an other great make-up brand) and get some professional advice on what make-up suits you best. Using the right color foundation, or eye shadow matching your eyes can make a big different. I think a beautiful face is half the total package. And about what clothing, just go for it and try different things and see what is most for you. Don’t get stuck in what other people are wearing or where you feel confortable in. Try to have some better quality stuff in your closet that you can mix and match with the cheaper stuff from Zara or H&M.

What a wonderful inspiring and energetic shoot we had!!
Thank you Willemijn for the homemade french pastry and the great cappuccino's.
I am looking forward to our new collaboration were we will communicate other creative thoughts :-)
Soon more about that on Anna's Choice......

Everywhere in her home, where ever you look is something beautiful to see.

Color: RED (with white dots :-)

Own Style: Stars, stripes, hearts, girly, colorful & cheerful 

Make-up: My mascara is by Lancome , love love everything by Biotherm and  Lancaster for my summer sun protection. And my eyeliner is a tattoo, so day and night in place :-)

Fashion Understatement: Crocs (ok maybe in the garden), Uggs (especially not made for the heavier man & woman) Birckenstocks.
I would love to say.....leggings, but I must say I wear them myself so.....:-) 

Bad Buy: I have a great deal of bad buys because I buy a lot online. One I am very sad about are my white sweddish hasbeens (seen in this post above). They look awesome, but hurt like hell on my feet. They are a size 39....wanna buy them? Send Anna an email and make me an over I cant refuse :-) 

Ultimate Styling Tip: Buy your size.... be honest! Never buy a size 38 if you are a 40 and visa versa of course. And another tip on my behalf; if you have heavy legs, do not wear heels/shoes with an ankle strap. Your legs will look shorter, heavier and your ankles will disappear.... So accentuate your benefits!

Thank you Pascal for your smile, energy, trust and great coffee.

Helena & Isa's Closet

Helena (27 years) mother, model, traveler, dreamer, dancer, singer, snow-boarder and adventure seeker
Helena lives with her daughter Isa (6 years) in Utrecht

Designer/ Brands: Iris van Herpen

Inspiration: Traveling, people, music and feelings

Style Icon: My daughter Isa 

Clothing: Dresses

Store: Vintage stores all around the world, always seeking for that perfect princes/party dress

Color: Red

Fragrance: Elle by Armani and Lady Million by Paco Rabanne 

Own Style: Feminine with an edge

Make-up: Lash Curler by Shu Uemura, DIOR Show mascara, MAC creme blusher in color posey, RITUALS black eyeliner. And when going out I love to wear strong colored lipstick like the orangy-red color Lady Danger by MAC. 

Fashion Understatement: Everything so oversized and asymmetrical (think Dutch brand Cora Kemperman) That you look like a witch or a dryad...So not feminine, stylish or fashionable. That doesn't work for anybody. Leave it for Walt Disney films!   

Bad Buy:  I am an impulse buyer. So yes a few bad buys....example; Bought a dress (was already in doubt, in the dressing room) At home I thought it was to long, so I shortened it. And then it became a top. Even worse! And this is one of many, so I have to learn and listen to my gut feeling and when in doubt, 
DO NOT BUY!!!   

Ultimate Styling Tip: Dare to show your body * Dare to use your body (type) * Dare to play with clothing * Dare to use colors * Dare to combine colors *Dare to use prints *Dare to combine prints *Dare to look, be and feel like a woman * DARE TO BE YOU!

This was one of the most precious Closet shoots I had. Because Helena and Isa have created their own little world and they let me in that world. Showed me around, made me feel welcome, made me feel part of it, showed me everything special with love and attention.
They made me feel like a girl, a princes, an elf....

They made me dream a bit more in life!

Thank you girls, I would love to come back and play again some time.

Mayra's Closet

Mayra Louise - 30 years from Amsterdam
Model & free lance Journalist
Follow Mayra on twitter here

Designer/ Brands: COS, Asos, Monki, River Island, Primark, H&M (trend line), American Apparel, Marc by Marc Jacobs, Simone Pérèle (underwear).

Inspiration: I get inspired by what I see on the streets, my friends, magazines, movies… everything around me basically.

Style Icon: My friend Danielle van Grondelle. She is a true inspiration.

Clothing: At the moment dresses and skirts. And my jeans blouse from American Apparel, I wear it so often it’s like my uniform.

Store: I love Rumors Vintage in the Haarlemmerstraat. They sell the best leather jackets, amazing dresses and really cool jewellery. 
I would like Rumors to be my closet…

Color: I used to be the girl in black but the last months I’ve been wearing color almost every day. Today I really like my neon pink/orange-ish skirt but who knows what color will brighten my day tomorrow?

Fragrance: Beauty by Calvin Klein

Own Style: Feminine with an edge. I like to combine classic items like a pencil skirt or vintage dress with chunky jewellery and sneakers. On my lazy days I just wear leggings and an oversized jeans blouse. I don’t like to look too dressed up.

Make-up: When I have a modeling job I usually wear a lot of make-up. I like myself better without a ‘pancake’ on my face. My everyday look is just a bit of peachy blush from Chanel and a hint of Bobbi Brown’s shimmering brick, rosebud balm on my lips and curled eyelashes. And I like to wear nailpolish. For my curls I use Bumble&Bumble curl crème and Sebastian’s Molding Mud.

Fashion Understatement: Crocs. Just. Don’t. Do. It.

Bad Buy:  Not one bad buy in the last couple of months. When in doubt I do not buy the garment but come back the next day to see if I like it just as much. My problem isn’t that I buy things that I don’t actually like, my problem is that I simply buy too much!

Ultimate Styling Tip: Do not follow trends but look at your body and wear what makes you feel good. And for the plus size ladies… straight size shopping galore! Don’t just look at the size on the label but dare to try on clothes that don’t come in your size. I’m a size 46/48 but actually have a lot of skirts, tops and dresses in a size 42. Love your curves and don’t be afraid to show them. And never forget to bring your smile!

I was so excited when Mayra said yes to my Closet question.
She is so F...... beautiful, I love her urban style and was very curious about her home and closet. 
Thank you Mayra for your hospitality, enthusiasm and see you soon on set :-)

Inspiration: People, the streets, travelling, magazines, well lets say "life"!

Style Icon: Brigitte Bardot & Kate Moss

Clothing: Dresses & Heels

Store: Boutiques in Barcelona & Milan, Camden market &Topshop in London, Raak, Smaak, Blau, 
Karen Millen, Jutka&Riska all based in Amsterdam

Color: Every vibrant color

Fragrance: By by Dolce & Gabanna (does not exist anymore) and REM by Reminiscence 

Own Style: I am a mood dresser... oh yes a mood dresser!! But always feminine and colorful.

And rather overdressed then underdressed. I like to make an entrance :-)

Make-up: Every mascara that exist I own and use. Every layer of mascara has a purpose and that depends on the brush. I also own to many lip-glosses...addict!!

Fashion Understatement: If you don't dress your body..... too big or too small,unfitted and unflattering

Bad Buy: I am such an impulse buyer and I can't choose colors. So I buy all colors of one pair of shoes for example. And then off course just wear one pair :-) But my badest buy is a dress by Iceberg, which I bought in Milan. 
It is way too fitted and tight. I love a guitar shaped body in a dress, but this one is a bit too much.
So the dress hangs in my closet for three years now. Never ever wore it and it still has its price tag :-(  

Ultimate Styling Tip: Know your body/body-type and what color complements your skin complexion.
Oh and of course "You are never fully dressed without a smile" 

I never ever have seen such a collection of shoes and dresses. 
Unfortunately I was not able to shoot this closet, like that you would have the same aaahhhh feeling.
You see Cécile standing in front off one of many closets she owns 
and oh my oh my.... shoes are stored everywhere.
Even in the kitchen cabinets, or in the hall way stored in the original boxes.
I showed you just a few of her favorites :-)  
It was a party to shoot Cécile's closet. The love for fashion and clothing is all around her
and it was great to see her being proud of her fabulous collection.
I mean she still owns a skirt bought in 1999 and she still wears it.

Thanks Cécile,maybe I will come back and shoot the rest of your closet :-)

Erica's Closet

Erica van Lanschot Hubrecht

Quote: Careless dressing is moral suicide

Inspiration: Blend magazine, I-D magazine , (German) Vogue, Films/Movies, Photographs, the Berlin from Christopher Isherwood, Wallis Simpson, Scot & Zelda Fitzgerald and the wardrobe from the 3os

Style Icon: I do not have style Icons, only heros. Diana Vreeland is my hero. She was the style advisor for Jackie Kennedy.Mmmmm so if I have to choose an "icon" I would say Jackie Kennedy.
My second hero is Grace Coddington; what a pro, what a vision, what a woman!

Clothing: I am a "jacket" woman.I love beautiful feminine cuts, with a great tiny waist and pleats.
It is all about the silhouette! What does it look like? Is it beautiful, powerful and very important feminine enough?
In the 80s I wore a lot of Japanese designers like Kenzo, Issye Miyake, Comme des Garcons and Yohi Yamamoto.
But at one point it became (literately) to complicated for me, and I choose for a more subtle and softer silhouette, but the love for black always stayed. I invest in classical pieces. Timeless basics with beautiful details but always with a little twist to it. My accessories are the icing on the cake! 

Store: Kiki Niesten, Het Modepaleis van Dries van Noten, Van Ravenstein &

Color: Black, black, black and in summer white and all non-colors like off white, soft grays etc...

Fragrance: Organza by Givenchy & Mitsouko by Guerlin, both mysterious and sensuous scents, but not to heavy to wear during the day and night

Make-up: Dior, Chanel,  Shiseido and I never leave my house without wearing my all time favorite red matt lipstick "Gruella" by NARS. For my nails I use Rouge Noir by Chanel and for the cuticles Creme Apricot by Dior

Own Style: Elegant, feminine and Classic, but always with a fun twist.

Fashion Understatement: Birckenstocks, Crocs, Uggs, leggings, backpacks, fleece sweaters and shorts must be massively burnt !

Bad Buy: Lots off times I buy the wrong heels. To high! But still... I display them and watch for hours!

Ultimate Styling Tip: Start with the basics! Wear good (maybe even correcting your shape) underwear.
Always invest in the best quality YOU can afford to buy . Apply this new slogan on everything in your live.
And last but not least; keep it simple and make a statement with a beautiful well chosen accessories 

Oh my Oh my... isn't this a beautiful woman with a beautiful closet.
Oh and how good can you look at 55?? Wow!!
I am very proud to share this with you and so was Erica.
With grace, enthusiasm and passion for every piece, she showed me all.
I hope you enjoyed watching this Closet post as much as we while shooting it.

Thank you again Erica

You know Anna's Chloé heels?? They used to be mine :-)

Simone's Closet

Simone Velthuis - 25 years old from Amsterdam
Student Organic Chemistry 

Designer/ Brands: Samsoe Samsoe, ACNE, Opening Ceremony, Filippa K and BZR

Style Icon: Alexa Chung 

Clothing: Pants, Pantalon, JEANS

Store: Trade Studio @ Haarlem, Clinic @ Antwerp

Color: White

Fragrance: The Rose by Paul Smith

Make-up: All Chanel

Own Style: Clean, relaxed, casual with a preppy feel to it.

Fashion Understatement: The average Dutch woman has this practical look. Always, Why???
You know the type with the leggings over a skirt, 3/4 pants, uggs, too tight clothing... I mean WHY???

Bad Buy: I always try to buy heels. Every time I do, I never wear them and give them away to my friends.
I have one pair left, which are technically not heels. A pair of heeled dessert boots, so called wedges.
Aghum....... :-)

Ultimate Styling Tip: Invest in basics and do not make it complicated for yourself. Look at you body, be honest, do not follow trends, but dress your body. Like the Parisienne do, fitted top, wide bottom. Fitted bottom, wide top!
You can't go wrong with that!

And again this week, I met an inspiring woman.
Such a pretty intelligent girl, who is always surrounded by men.
You do not meet a lot of girls when you study organic chemistry and stand in a lab all day.
So she loves to wear great clean cut clothes and look sexy without heels. 
I think that is an achievement already :-)
(not that you always have to wear heels to look sexy, for the critic among us)

Thank you Simone for welcoming me in your student room/home
and share your Closet with me/ us!

Ultimate Styling Tip: Always dress yourself to your body type... ALWAYS!!!

OOOOOOOoooooooo I am so happy with this Closet post.
I was able to take a ride (of 6 hours) to Belgium this past sunday,

She has some beautiful pieces in her Closet and I am charmed by her passion for fashion.

Thank you Kim for your hospitality, little brunch, fun and enthusiasm.

Ultimate Styling Tip: Find your balance between high-street and designer, but also with material and volumes. Never two times slim and tight or two times big and wide.
Top and bottom needs to be in balance. Oh and a logo is a no go! 

My heart made a little jump, when I found out that I could photograph
Karin Amatmoekrim's Closet. Because she is my favorite dutch writer and then to discover
her love and passion for fashion made me even love her more.
Filled with energy she showed me proudly her great collection of shoes,
 dresses and bags. So much fun playing dress up with the tutudress by Max Azria,

It was fun and for me a real surprise to shoot Karens' Closet because we've never met.

Style Icon: Brigitte Bardot & Jackie O

Clothing: Heels Heels Heels and dresses of course to pair them with the heels

Store: Karen Millen (especcially in Londen), Christian Louboutin, the ‘oldest’ store in Paris, at the Rue Jean Jacques Rousseau (this is bad.. I even know the adress by heart). Zara in Barcelona at the Plaza de Cataluña. In Amerca I love Sephora. I’m fond of beauty and they have a lot of unknown brands there that we don’t.

Color: Mint green (old vintage green), always has been, since I was a little child.

Fragrance: Tom Ford Black Orchid, Private Collection Tuberose Gardenia of Estée Lauder (you should all really try these two), pureDKNY and Allure Sensuelle of Chanel.

Make-up: On my eyes, every single day ‘paint’ - MAC, with a layer of eyeshadow from Estee Lauder. Mascara Sumptuous extreme by Estée Lauder. Double Wear foundation by Estée Lauder, Guerlain brow pencil, MAC or Chanel lipstick. 

Own Style: Modern interpretation of the fifties/sixties, elegant with a Dutch touch (Sorry folks, but Ihave to cycle every day ;-)), always high heels and preferably dressed up - in a dress!

Fashion Understatement: To small clothing, greasy hair, bagpacks (when you’re not on a journey), big pulls/sweaters (the worst are made of fleece) and hiking pants, you know the ones with zippers, so you can make them shorter? brrrrrrrr.... oh and hike schoes for ladies.

Bad Buy: A pair of pricy Michael Kors boots from L.A. who are not fitting very well. My friend also bought them and has the same problem, so this is a double bad buy. But they are gorgeous in my closet.

Ultimate Styling Tip: Always invest in shoes and bags. How much weight you will gain or lose, they will always fit and will be your BFF (best friend forever)!

Maria's Closet

Maria Hooykaas
Creative Artist, Mother and Grandmother of 4

Designer: Maison Martin Margiela, Commes des Garcon & Yohji Yamamoto

Inspiration: Magazines and my own instinct/ feelings

Style Icon: None

Clothing: Suspenders

Store: Dover Street Market @ London

Color: RED

Fragrance: Amber by PRADA & 888 by Commes des Garcon

Make-up: Matt red lipstick by MAC- Russian Red, Foundation by La Prairie, 
Black eye-pencil by HEMA

Own Style: Feminine, a bit minimalistic with a twist. Always a little joke somewhere in the outfit.
Like a bold neckless or a bright colored belt on a complete black outfit. I think I just have a good eye for combining "whatever". It's just like Photography, painting or sculpting. 
And I find it nice to think about it and to really look at things. 

Fashion Understatement: White leggings

Bad Buy: Shoes, I always buy high heels, but I just can't walk on them. My daughters are always very pleased with my bad buys and this time you (Anna;-) can parade with some Ann Demeulemeester and See by Chloé high heeled boots.

Ultimate Styling-tip: I always try to make everything look pretty and special around me. 
Just try to look your best everyday. Clean, fresh and with a smile. It will give you energy, makes you happy and also the people around you. Not only with your body, but also with your interior and the way you present your food on a plate makes a difference. Just pay more attention and do it with love.

I am very proud about this post, because Maria thought that she might be to old to 
be on Anna's Choice/ Anna's Closet. I had to convince her a bit, that
age has nothing to do with a great sense of style, which she obviously has.

When you think your "Closet" should be shown on Anna's Closet,
like me on facebook and tell me why and I will be on my way with my camera.

See you @ the next Closet, maybe its your own!

Anouk's Closet

Anouk Houtappel, Fashion Stylist and life lover!

Color: Emerald green

Fragrance: Reminiscence

Make-up: Mascara by Chanel, Moisturizer  "Daywear"  by Estée Lauder, Lip care by Clinique
and always nail polish from O.P.I. 

Own Style: Classic & changeable. I dress how I feel, but always n'sync with color and style.
Never highstreet just brand labels, with beautiful details and flowy fabrics. 

Fashion Understatement: Skin colored tights, so NOT done! 

Bad Buy: A green (almost emerald) tunic, with lovely shoulder details.
It is stil very pretty, but I never wear it. It is not my style.

Ultimate Styling-tip:  Never look at the label, but look in the mirror. Does it fit your body,
your skin complexion and your own style? When you want to follow a fashion trend, check what will fit YOU. If its ROCK, maybe a leather jacket suits you better than leather pants. Or visa versa! Be honest to yourself and you will look your best!!!!

Be inspired by Anouk and check your closet for new combinations.
And throw away those skin colored tights, please!

See you at the next Closet, with Maria.
She is an artist, mother and grandmother.
Ciao, Bisou Anna

And a great belt or scarf will pimp up your old outfit. Think in Classics never in trends, follow your own trend, body-shape, image and feeling of the day!
