Forever Leather Weather

Shot in Partnership with Everlane Forever Leather Weather   – I’m a firm believer that regardless of season, regardless of weather, there is always an opportunity to inject a little leather in my look. Cue my new Modern Leather Jacket from Everlane. But this is no ordinary leather jacket. This wardrobe staple is fully traceable…a […]

Bare Essentials

Bare Essentials   – Giving my black biker jackets a break with a new, barely-there, nearly-nude shade of leather… An unexpected departure from my usual, all in an effort to lighten up this Spring. Kept things minimal overall with a crisp white linen dress (on repeat from last year) and a trio of black accessories. […]

In partnership with Void Of Color Void of Color   – There is a new brand on the block… Say hello to Void of Color! A new concept store that only stocks all-black essentials… After all, good basics are the building blocks for the perfect base wardrobe. Since I’m a firm believer there is no […]

The Battaglia Effect

It may just be a coincidence or perhaps even fate, but something was drawing me to Italy and it wasn’t just Venice. Sara Battaglia might be Giovanna Battaglia’s little sister (Editor in chief of Italian W mag and more infamously credited as being one of the worlds most papped street style stars) but she is

Oracle Fox x CR.Capsule

  One of Australia’s largest fashion juggernauts released a press release this week stating… “It’s Country Road, but not as you know it”. It’s been near to seven years now since I began in the fashion industry.  It’s difficult to put into words what it feels like to have begun an independent website at the eve of the […]

Rock n Roll Decadence at the Palace of Versailles

In this look: LPA Jacket, GRLFRND Jean & Anna Quan Shirt Rock n Roll Decadence: the Versailles editorial Wearing: LPA 85 Leather Jacket & GRLFRND “Helena” High-Rise Straight Jean from FWRD (Sale now until 20 March 2017) To believe that fashion is divorced from the real world and its contextual groundings is wishful thinking. It is, rather, entirely a symptom of the times and its moods. For the throng of travellers who visit Versailles for touristic pleasures (often musing on how remarkable such a feat would have been 300 years before), it is a place of altruistic merits. It is to educate, to conjure emotion and to bridge a connection to a most important minute of our history. A glorious slice of cake, if you will. And as we are on the topic of cake – in its most tumultuous chapter, for which Versailles is popularly remembered, it was a symbol of imperialist tyranny and wonton excess, so befittingly caricatured in one young Austrian born French queen. She – with fantastic hair as perhaps her most enduring legacy – was thereafter imagined perpetually enveloped in pastries of every pastel shade. For this I very much prefer, to all others, the […]

RED LEATHER

This edit feels like a fresh start to me. Not only was I extremely fascinated searching for new inspiration and introducing a digital section, but also this leather jacket got me looking for more vintage second-hand pieces.     Truth is I never used to make my research for something other than brand new. Felt …

Modern Muse in Hong Kong

Modern Muse in Hong Kong Travel Editorial featuring Estée Lauder Modern Muse Le Rouge Gloss Eau de Parfum It’s one of those truisms so easy to assimilate into one’s reality – like the fact that egg tarts hold the joy of life, or that vacay brain thrives on longer purse strings – that certain stimuli of the senses have mystical powers over the human mind. For example, that colours can influence mood and perception, and scents can evoke powerful feelings. Here in Hong Kong, whether such postulations are based in science is largely irrelevant. Notwithstanding its vertical concrete habitats, neon sign forests, and other such demonstrations of its ultra-modernity, the tradition (or perhaps, superstition) of the colour red is faithfully observed. It is used to signify luck and prosperity in life, power and rightfulness in politics, and sexual desire in love.  But for the Chinese, rather than being a show of prevailing confidence, it is a gesture in invitation of the same, or, even, in expectation. One needs only to observe the concrete and glass facades of Hong Kong’s islands, greeting each other each night across the harbour with an extravagant light show, aflood in the colour red. Amongst that […]

Shop NOIR

Bold, classic, powerful, dependable, mysterious, strong and luxe…there have been many ways to describe black. Always considered a fashion staple and default hue for us New Yorkers, there is just something about slipping into a fave black sweater or all black everything that just makes me feel polished, sleek and pulled together, even when the silhouette […]

Hironae Paris Leather Jacket

You can never have too many black leather jackets… (or at least thats what I tell myself) I’m a firm believer that a leather jacket is an ideal topper for almost any look. Newest addition & quite possibly the most special yet, sporting stament fringe that is a “wow” factor yet somehow understated at the same time, […]

Leather Jacket Edit

All-rounder leather…   I am a firm believer that a leather jacket is an all-season essential ! While it may be unexpected to pair with lightweight Spring/Summer dresses and airy clothing, I’m all about unconventional, maximizing existing pieces & options ! Styles galore in moto, bombers, biker jackets as well as classic silhouettes. Smooth leather or faux […]

New leather addition to my closet, and quite possibly my favorite to date! The Arrivals Rainier Leather Moto Jacket is part tough, part fashion, part function, part cool and yet utterly classic. While it’s fully versatile with removable collar, and has attitude to spare, it still manages to have a low-key,not trying too hard vibe…its simply […]

LIFE / STOKKE ON THE GO #1

A new collaboration is up and this time I’ve teamed up with Stokke to capture two of my hotspots in Holland. So, have you ever wondered how I start my weekend? Every Saturday morning you can find me in the Haarlemmermeerse Bos for a work out. Normally it’s for a bootcamp session, but this time I took Enzo with me in the Stokke Xplory stroller for a powerwalk training. Nothing beats a good sweat in the fresh air after a long and hectic week. After every work out I always stop by the restaurant Vork en Mes (which means fork and knife) for a cup of coffee. This restaurant is located at the Haarlemmermeerse Bos and uses organic ingredients which are mostly self-grown. Besides the amazing quality of the food the building is also just beautiful with the greatest view over the lake. It’s where I reload and enjoy some time for myself, while my mother is watching over Enzo. And even though I normally always pay Vork en Mes a visit without Enzo, it was nice to spend some quality time together at one of my personal favourite spots. So to all you fitgirls and momma’s I highly recommend you to visit Vork en Mes one day. WEARING: MUUBAA OVERSIZED LEATHER JACKET, FRONTROW JACKET, JOGHA JUNGLE TIGHTS, ADIDAS SNEAKERS AND RAYBAN SUNNIES ENZO WEARING: DUDES AND DOLLS PANTS, YOUNG ONE APPAREL (BOTH AVAILABLE AT THE COLOR BLUE.NL), CONVERSE SNEAKERS AND HM CARDIGAN REVIEW OF THE STOKKE XPLORY: Besides that I love the design of the Stokke Xplory it’s really practical too. By reversing the seat you turn the stroller in to a chair for your little one, that way you can make any restaurant or cafe child-friendly. It’s super easy to fold in and out and therefor easy to take with you anywhere you go.

Spring Slit…

Spring Slit   Injecting a tiny hint of skin to tone down this all black look so it doesn’t end up looking too heavy…wanted to still keep it weather appropriate for Spring with a slight slit / loose fitted, airy top and opted for a cropped sleek leather rather than a biker jacket that looks […]

Not your standard…

Not your standard   Pairing a tough black biker jacket may not be the obvious choice over sheer, lightweight whites, but I love injecting a little black and a little leather into my looks and this combo works nicely for the spring/summer transition where the day starts out a little cool but warms up quickly. […]

Reworked Classics…

Reworked   Classics   There is nothing more that represents a classic to me than a pair of well-loved converse and the perfect leather jacket ! I paired both here with an ultra simple, flowy maxi dress. I also love pairing luxe items like my PS11 bag with an affordable, everyday go-to basic like converse. […]

Acne Leather Jacket

You’ll be proud to know that occasionally I don’t just wear black.  Apart from the odd hit of khaki, I’m a fan of the tan, the perfect option for a winter wardrobe if you’re looking for another kind of neutral.  Trust Acne to nail it colour stakes by adapting their trademark oversized leather jacket in […]

OUTFITS / DECEMBER

This will probably be my last monthly recap on COTTDS.com for awhile. I think some of you already have noticed that I have been posting less outfits. I’m definitely trying my hardest to still keep up with my blog – and outfits – but it’s not getting easier now I have arrived in my 9 month pregnancy. The days are passing by so fast, especially for me, now I hardly have energy. Somewhere around 8/9 PM my day have come to and end and bedtime starts. Haha. I feel like such a grandma! But hey, we’re just keep on going. =)

RECAP / OUTFIT FAVOURITES FROM 2014

A Little tradition we have here on COTTDS.com is the yearly outfit recap. Picked out my personal favourites from the over 100 looks I’ve posted in 2014. It have definitely been challenging to shoot my outfits for the blog the last 6 months. Starting in June when I had a positive pregnancy test. After that my whole world changed, I changed. Mentally but also physically. The physical changes were pretty intense in the beginning. The first 3 months I was extremely tired and I hardly had energy to blog (or anything else for that matter). At that time my baby bump also really started to show, which didn’t make it easy to take outfitshots without showing it.. After 4,5 (long) months I finally shared the amazing news with you, and I was able to show off that cute baby bump. My favourite accessory for sure! ;) It have been a life changing year for me. A dreamy and special year. And the fun part is that 2015 will be even greater. Can’t wait to meet my little man next month! PS: Curious to see the yearly recap of 2013? Check it out here.

My end of 2014 was a little less exciting, spend the last days in bed with a flu. Yup, I was that lucky. But, I’m back on my feet again and my first outfit of 2015 – besides my pajamas – was this one. Decided that it was time to unleash these leopard ankle boot again, since they have been spending a lot of time in their shoe box lately.

WEARING: ZARA LEATHER JACKET AND RIPPED JEANS, PRIMARK BLOUSE, ISABEL MARANT ‘ANDREW’ BOOTS AND PS11 TINY BAG The baby bump haven’t disappeared, don’t you worry, these photos are just very old. Took them when I was about 13 weeks pregnant, but decided not to publish these until the word was out. In these photos you can definitely tell that my body was already changing, and during that period I felt a bit insecure about my mini bump. I mean, if you see me now, you can definitely tell that I’m pregnant. But in the first 16 weeks or so you could easily think that I just had eaten too many burgers. (haha)
