Net-a-Porter x La Collection

Net-a-Porter x   LA COLLECTION   – A favorite curated on-line shop, a favorite label and a favorite color story, all come together to create my take on Spring transitional dressing. Cue Net-a-porter’s exclusive capsule collection with La Collection…founded and designed by my good friend Florence, La Collection is a ready-to-wear line inspired by couture-grade textiles […]

Sport Luxe

In partnership with mytheresa.com Sport Luxe   – Back at it once again with my very good friends at mytheresa.com This time with a fresh update to my Winter wardrobe. I’m no stranger of course, to a good dose of black on black, but I’ve never done black quite like this before… Cue my new, […]

Handbag experts Meli Melo, have designed a collection of bags and accessories with each New York borough in mind. Think “sport luxe” styling, cool and edgy designs with a nod to each borough. And while they […]

Tone on Tone

Tone on Tone   – An all-too-familiar Winter look for me… A good dose of camel, tan and taupe for a tone on tone layered look, that is the epitome of comfy, cozy and cold weather appropriate. – Wearing Max Mara Coat (also avail. beige) | Common Project Sneakers Scarf similar here + here | […]

High Shine

High Shine   – Fun fact…I happen to love sequins! With holiday season upon us, I always add a few high-shine, liquid-like, sequin pieces to my wardrobe this time of year. While typically reserved for evening affairs, holiday parties and events, I couldn’t resist wearing a dressed down styling option with unexpected sneakers for a […]

Luxe Sneakers

In partnership with Stuart Weitzman Luxe Sneakers   – Wrapping up the week and heading into the weekend in my default favorite #allblackeverything! For me, all black seems to be my go-to combination…partly because a total tonal blackout, always makes me feel pulled together with virtually no effort required and partly due to a little […]

Ready Set Go

While some people may have problems committing I can proudly say that I’ve not only committed once (to my husband) but twice, to sneakers, which incidentally happens to be the longest relationship of my life. It doesn’t matter if they are the trend of the season or not, I’ve always preferred sneakers over everything, day or night, summer or winter. And because I’m not a trend shopper when it comes to sneakers I’m very picky in choosing only comfortable, cool and timeless pairs: like the Stuart Weitzman SW-612. The key points making them the perfect pair: extra comfy light suede that makes socks obsolete, the white rubber sole detail that gives it the extra touch, perfect cut at the ankle with a leather-wrapped elastic ruching detail that enhances the ankle (and makes legs look super long and flattering) so on and so forth… They come in 5 colors, either leather or suede and more good news is that these are not the only sneaker design Stuart Weitzman has. Now it’s time to get the other …

90’s Revival

In partnership with Reebok 90’s Revival   – I have been a long-time, sneaker aficionado, especially sneakers of the sleek and streamlined variety…I can now officially say that I am a convert! Thanks to my friends at Reebok for introducing me to The Aztrek Sneaker. Returning from the archives, this sneaker silhouette is slightly chunky, […]

Iconic Cashmere

In partnership with Uniqlo Iconic Cashmere   – You had me at cashmere! Road testing my new, 100% cashmere, Uniqlo crewneck in my favorite New York neighborhood, Soho. While I’m a firm believer no cashmere is bad cashmere, there are some better than others. What makes this Uniqlo knit stand out to me? I love […]

Double Take

In partnership with mytheresa.com Double   Take   – Same, but different, different, but the same…seeing double in a favorite new dress thanks to my friends at mytheresa.com. With a few slight styling adjustments I get the best of both worlds with one dress. While I typically don’t have a problem making decisions, once in […]

Guccified

Guccified   – Did someone say Gucci ? Not to be missed bold logo’s and double G’s are a far departure from my usual low-key approach to dressing, but in this case, a double dose of Gucci is off-set with classic black suiting & simple white sneakers for some much needed balance. A perfect Monday-back-at-it […]

Braless Blazer

Nothing more classic than a navy suit. Dare to wear a blazer right on your bare skin to heighten the look during warmer days. In that case, this set from our wear-to-work wardrobe has to be worn in a minimalist … Continue reading →

Blank Canvas

shot in collaboration with mytheresa.com Blank Canvas   – Sometimes a blank canvas is best. In this case, a hoodie with room to spare, paired with a sneaker that is somewhere between chunky and sleek, set the tone for a tonal outfit that gives “whiteout” a whole new meaning. Thanks to the always reliable mytheresa.com for […]

Shop My Closet!

Shop my closet…   – From essentials to statement pieces, my closet edit is made up entirely of items in my wardrobe! You’ll find black bags on repeat, oversized silhouettes, monochrome, neutrals and denim. My favorite little luxuries to bigger investment pieces along side classic converse.

Off-White Suiting

Off-White Suiting   – Fresh off, of a month-long Paris trip, I’m already missing the Parisian interiors. The recognizable, intricate details and features of French architecture set the backdrop to my new French suiting! Clean lines & an off-white palatte are the name of the game by a favorite label of mine, Hironae. Feelings very […]

Oh my fringes!

Mein Instagram Feed ist derzeit so farbenfroh wie nie und jetzt trage ich auch noch eine senfgelbe Fransenjacke. Wo kommt all die Farbe denn bitte her und wie konnte denn das plötzlich passieren?? Keine Sorge – black is still my happy colour! Ich hab ja eh schon immer und ab & zu Farbe getragen …nur… Continue reading

Monday Mood Off Duty

Monday Mood   Off Duty   – Lighthearted and not too serious, stepping out in an unexpected look, that covers both comfort and an off duty vibe… and… quite possibly conveys my typical Monday mood best. Happy shopping – links below ! – Wearing Pleated Dress c/o of Milly | Knit Sweater | Nike Sneakers

Spring Line Up

shot in collaboration with mytheresa.com Spring Line Up   – It all started with a skirt…I had every intention of posting a single look for a fresh Spring Story featuring a favorite new piece… my J.W. Anderson Striped Skirt from mytheresa.com. This idea quickly evolved, thanks to endless style options (and some indecision) but…I call these good problems! There is nothing […]

Solids, Stripes & Sneakers

Solids, Stripes & Sneakers   – Covering all the bases here…solids, stripes, sneakers and a punch of black. All of my favorites, all in one look. Impactful and makes a statement, but is rooted in simplicity… and after all, I’m a firm believer that simple is best! – Wearing Striped Top + Bottom | Vince […]

Denim & Shearling

Denim & Shearling   – Wearing a double dose of denim and slouchy neutral shearling, because every once in a while, I try and take a (mini) break from black… Tonal shades of nude, camel and tan are always go-to neutrals for me, along with faded denim…more specifically distressed denim, which always seems to be in […]

February cravings / 7 items for yourself and your home

This was only hours away from being a last ditch effort at a “January cravings” and yet the whole first month of the year went by without sharing a wishlist. How is January even over? How is 2017 even over? It will never cease to boggle my mind how tim…

offline today & brown teddy coat

Offline today – das war mein Motto für Weihnachten und die Feiertage, an denen ich nur sehr sporadisch online war und natürlich war es herrlich, einfach mal wieder nur zu essen und auf der Couch zu gammeln. Dass sich dieses Motto allerdings auch noch zwei Wochen länger zieht, war definitiv so nicht geplant! Zwei Tage… Continue reading

Sweater Weather

Sweater Weather   – To me, sweater weather, as people affectionally call it, is beyond conventional “sweaters”. When I think of sweater weather, I think of all knitwear, in all forms…and the best knitwear of all? Easy…cue the cashmere! This is the second time I’ve partnered with my friends at Naked Cashmere to show knitwear […]

Casual in Camel

Casual in Camel   A color I can get behind…Camel hues via my friends at Third Form. The clean lines of this classic coat, in this case, are offset with an oversized scarf, sneakers and messy hair for an altogether comfy, casual and slightly unexpected look. My version of off-off-duty! Wearing Coat c/o Third Form (no longer avail. […]

Decjuba DLUXE Beyond Basics

Shot in collaboration with Decjuba Decjuba D Luxe   Beyond Basics   Establishing a monopoly on basics in my closet, Decjuba D-Luxe nails it every time! A mix between the permanent collection everyone has come to expect, love and demand (like my favorite boyfriend tee on repeat!) but always managing to add a few new statement pieces to kick it […]

Overalls

Think audaciously edgy and relaxed. A good dose of leather with a soft texture will be your best partner. Aakasha Leather Jumpsuit

Business Casual

Business Casual   Once reserved as a “commuter” outfit, the suiting + sneaker combination is once again popular thanks in part to the athleisure movement, causal Fridays and the reemergence of classic kicks like the Adidas Stan Smiths. This is not a new concept or trend but one I’ve relied on for years and default to often. Strategic suiting […]

Simply a work of art, you would never guess my new Aitch Aitch tote is handcrafted from paneled leather salmon skin. Yes, Salmon! An unconventional material used in an innovative way and approached from an inspired, artful and stylized point-of-view. Aitch Aitch is crafted […]

sheer dress & adidas nmd r2 roller knit

In den letzten Tagen war es ziemlich ruhig bei mir – nicht nur auf dem Blog, sondern auch auf sämtlichen Social Media Kanälen. Und das ganz bewusst. Ich war für fünf Tage mit Freunden in Italien und ein richtiger Urlaub, in dem man einfach nichts macht, außer sich zu entspannen, war für uns alle bitter… Continue reading

adidas iniki runner white pearl

Es ist noch nicht allzu lange her, da war ich mit Leonie und Manuel in Berlin bei den Pressdays und uns wurden allerhand Neuheiten präsentiert, die in den kommenden Wochen und Monaten erhältlich sein werden. Sowas ist natürlich immer wahnsinnig spannend und eine unglaubliche Inspiration. Unter anderem haben wir auch diese hübschen Adidas Iniki Sneakers… Continue reading

Oversized & Slouchy

Oversized & Slouchy   Fresh whites contrasted with a bold hit of black leather…this black & white, lack-of-color look has me in my happy place wearing my favorite monochromatic color palatte in an effortless but elevated silhouette. Loose layers called for an unstructured accessory in this case. You’ve seen this oversized & slouchy clutch before… Still in high rotation, […]

Adidas NMD R1 Lush Red

„Bianca, du trägst rote Schuhe?? Jetzt hätt ich dich auf die Schnelle gar nicht erkannt“ – mit diesen Worten wurde ich vor einiger Zeit von einer Freundin begrüßt, die nicht ganz fassen konnte, dass ich ziemlich knallige Sneakers trug. Ihr müsst wissen, wenn’s um Sneakers und Nagellack geht, mag ich Farbe nicht nur ganz gerne,… Continue reading

Navy Baby

Shot in collaboration with rag & bone Navy Baby   – Cheating on black with tone on tone navy hues, partly a salute to Spring and my wanting to lighten up a bit… and partly inspired by the silhouette of my new rag & bone Rowe Pant. Since I love mono-tonal dressing, it was a no brainer […]

Neutral Knits

Neutral Knits   A look that could define the phrase “sweater weather” and perhaps the next best thing to actually wearing a blanket…this practically head-to-toe knit look hits the comfort mark but still stays street appropriate. Showing a handful of neutral options below that can be mixed, matched and layered, to me, there are no rules…I […]

The Staple Sneaker

You don’t have to be athletic to appreciate the everyday wear of a sneaker. Embracing my sporty side here, or the closest thing to it, with one of the last looks to finish off the year. Winter layers are brought to life with loose tailoring, relaxed silhouette and what I consider to be “the” staple sneaker, Adidas Stan […]

Well Traveled

Well Traveled   The holidays are in full swing and I have traveling, gifting and giving on my mind! Enter rag & bone Winter accessories…think stylish traveler to the every day New York nomad. Think cold weather necessities to everyday year-round essentials. Think luxe living to street chic…you get the idea…a wide range of items […]

Double Dose of Knits

Double Dose   Of Knits   Committed to comfort here with a  proper double dose of knits. Exaggerated sleeves, asymmetrical hem and an unexpected open back make these anything but basic. Next best thing to wearing an actual blanket…you can shop exact pieces at Anna Quan (skirt here + turtleneck here) I also included inspiration below of similar […]

Slouchy Silhouettes

Slouchy Silhouettes Doing my best disappearing act while still managing to stand out. Layers of knits & wool weaves leaving me ready for the NYC cold. Slouchy + Oversized in my favorite monochromatic palette. Done Done + Done! Wearing coat via Ganni also avail in Black | Dusty Pale Blue & Tobacco | Bucket Bag via X Nihilo | […]

2016 Gift Guide

2016 Gift Guide   – Well it’s that time of the year again…the scrambling begins to find the perfect something for everyone for the holidays…not an easy task especially with the amount of choices out there. If you are anything like me, it can get confusing and overwhelming…and I’m the first to admit to getting side-tracked […]

Grey Days

Grey Days   When I collaborated on my Capsule Collection with Third Form I knew I wanted to create pieces that were effortless on their own in Spring and Summer, but I also wanted them to transition easily into Fall. In this case, opposites attract, layered lightweight silk skirt from the collection here, with an oversized, chunky knit for […]

Weekender

Weekender   When you work from home like me, the lines between weekdays and weekends sometimes start to blur a bit. I seem to have adopted an “off-duty” mentality almost full-time lately. Opting for sneakers instead of heels in most cases, scaled-back instead of over-styled, I love easy pieces that don’t require much thought (or effort!). And […]

Slit Skirts + Sweaters + Sneakers

Slit Skirt Sweaters + Sneakers   Simple weekend look featuring a few favorites, my design collaboration Silk Slit Skirt with Third Form, default, black chunky knit & on stand-by sneakers. Monochrome, comfy and still pulled together without a lot of effort required…my kind of dressing! Wearing Athletica Skirt by Third Form x Figtny | Hope […]

Grey on Grey

Grey on Grey   Its no secret that Fall is my favorite season, neither is the fact that I’m a sucker for knits…or all things grey…or all things oversized…I know, I know, I’m a creature of habit. I not only prefer certain seasons and colors but I also have my fave New York neighborhoods that […]

In the Bag

In the Bag   As we transition into Fall, I’m slowly adding pieces and forever stockpiling all that is monochrome, minimal and functional. When you have a “default” uniform you defer to, mine is usually a combination of textures in all black everything…you rely on a good rotation of well thought out accessories to be the hero pieces […]

Summer Interlude | Fall Dreaming with Moda Operandi

Summer Interlude   Fall Dreaming…   – I can’t imagine a more perfect collaboration for my first video project than to bring my new Moda Operandi wardrobe additions to life! Moda Operandi has been a favorite online shopping destination for me for a while now. I think of Moda as an “it girl”. A fashion insider […]

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 […]

Under $100 Edit

Luxe-looking, no compromising, chic, stylish and current…a curated assortment of clothing & accessories that satisfy wanting nice things but don’t break the bank ! From classics & staples to items you never knew you wanted, but can totally afford to have !

Bare Shoulders + Bell Sleeves

Bare Shoulders + Bell Sleeves   I am always looking for ways to incorporate knitwear into my Summer rotation. Enter this Third Form top…while the fluffy knit-like quality may seem too heavy for the season and is not an option for the hottest of days, off the shoulder styling, relaxed fit & cropped bell sleeves give it just enough elements to […]

Collaboration Stan Smiths by Adidas x Barney’s New York. I’m a sucker for white sneakers in general and love this perfect […]

Keeping it real

Keeping it Real   Shot in LA not too long ago, this look is all about my comfort zone, all black (almost) everything, offset with crisp white sneakers and oversized sunnies. Staples kicked up a notch with tailoring, texture or a slight twist on a basic. Crop flares, high-neck shell, leather kicks and gradient sunnies…a nod to […]

OUTFIT / SMILE

WEARING: AVELON FASHION BLOUSE, DENHAM LEATHER SKIRT, ADIDAS STAN SMITH SNEAKERS, ALEXANDER WANG BAG There really is no reason not to smile when the sun is shining and you’re touring around the city on your bike. Especially not when you’re doing it on this cool matte black one from VanMoof. I just love everything about this bike. The way it looks, and the way it makes me feel. I now rather choose to move around by bike when the weather is allowing it, it’s still Holland we’re talking about, instead of just always jump in my car. I just feel so much more alive with the wind in my hair and being outdoors! Thanks VanMoof for the amazing gift! PHOTOS BY DENISE PS: I’m giving away a pair of GIVENCHY sunnies on my Instagram, don’t forget to enter!

OUTFIT / SUPERSTARS

WEARING: ADIDAS SUPERSTAR SNEAKERS (VIA WINKELSTRAAT.NL), HM TREND DRESS, CHLOE FAYE CROSSBODY BAG Ever since Enzo came in to my life, I’m much more of a sneaker addict then a high heel kind of girl. Yup, kids sure change you. But running after Enzo is a lot easier when you’re not wearing 5 inch heels. Plus a new pair of white sneakers never hurt anyone, so I got the Adidas Superstar as well. And by sometimes pairing them up with a long dress I still feel a bit like the old me. :)

OUTFIT / FOR THOSE RAINY DAYS

WEARING: MUUBAA LEATHER TROUSERS, HM TREND BLOUSE AND COAT, CONVERSE SNEAKERS AND DUFFYBAG TOTE BAG
Not sure where the sun have been hiding this week, but it is raining non-stop over here. Rain, rain, go away!

Sleeveless + Sneakers

Sleeveless + Sneakers   Ultra simple, ultra minimal and altogether uncomplicated…a simple maxi (this one happens to be versatile & can be worn front to back or vice versa) my signature sunnies, all white sneakers and sleek crossbag make this a no fuss Spring to Summer look ! Wearing Dress c/o Third Form | Sneakers Common Projects (similar […]

Double Knit

Double KNIT   What’s better than an ultra easy and effortless knit…? Two knits ! Doubled up the cozy factor with merino wool goodness, keeps me warm but since its’t technically Spring, also showing a hint of skin.  Somewhere between dove grey & pale blue but 100% a perfect a neutral, this can be achieved with a wide […]

shadows and light

shadows & light   Couldn’t resist the most perfect shadow-cast white wall to be the back drop for a an ultra comfy, off-duty, sneaker look. A fitted knit maxi paired with low-key sneakers is casual and effortless, perhaps a little unexpected, but altogether sleek! Literally throw it on & go but still left feeling put together. Wearing Aritzia dress + […]

The Croc Effect

The Croc Effect   Well its the first day of Spring so naturally…I’m in all black ; ) But honestly, I am excited to lighten things up, shed a few layers and have a fresh start as it starts to warm up. While I piled on the black on black here, I kept things feeling fresh by […]

OUTFIT / SNEAKERS

WEARING: GESTUZ LEATHER TRACK PANTS, HM TREND TOP, ZARA BLAZER, CHLOE FAYE BAG AND ADIDAS STAN SMITH SNEAKERS Feeling a bit like a tomboy in these photos… It’s definitely a different outfit that you are used to here on COTTDS.com. But, I do love wearing sneakers just as much as wearing high heels lately. Especially my white Stan Smith ones! Photos by Iris

Grey Layers

Grey Layers   I could wear grey layers all day, everyday…while I love black and white of course, there is something ultra cozy about getting lost in layers of tonal grey knits. Last of the Wintery transitional looks, this has an ever so slight nod to an off-duty sweatsuit, mainly due to the heathered color, but […]

Common Projects Woman

Simple, chic, off-duty staple, my newest all-white sneaker addition…Common Projects Woman. They have a low-key vibe, clean finish and narrow design which altogether make them feel sleek and elevated. Love them! Common Projects Woman Sneakers | White

Variety

New asset in the white sneakers collection.. Sneakers Clean 90′ Axel Arigato (out of stock – similar here)      

Isabel Marant Bart Sneakers

Newest addition to my white sneaker collection… Isabel Marant Bart Sneakers | Taupe | Pink | Yellow

West Coast Casual

West Coast Casual   Adapting my chunky Hope Grand sweater to my current West Coast life…less layering and more casual than my all black NY look last time around. (NY vs LA ; ) Love the oversized, slouchy get-lost-in-it-feel of this look – perfect for a cooler California day! Wearing HOPE SWEATER (SIMILAR) | Aritzia crop pant | […]

New Neutrals…

New Neutrals   Starting off the New Year wrapped in cozy neutrals by Eileen Fisher. Cashmere separates and extra long knit cardigan are perfect alternatives to tons of layers and heavy coat thanks to our mild Winter ! Neutrality (and simplicity) at its best is a great way to start 2016 ! xo Wearing Eileen […]

Sneakers + Stripes…

Sneakers + Stripes   The epitome of off-duty, weekend-casual could quite possibly be classic stripes & sneakers. Sneakers of course have now become staples of everyday dressing but they used to be strictly off-duty wear to give tired feet a break from the daily grind. And stripes have always, to me at least, had a carefree, nautical […]

Neutral Territory…

Neutral   Territory…   Not quite grey, not quite taupe…and somewhere between heathered and marled is how I would describe the current knits, coats, & wraps in my rotation. A perfect collection of neutrals, in various shades of the same, that are just different enough and seem to always work together – tonal and always complimentary. These […]

WEARING / WHEN IN BERLIN

WEARING: STREETONE BLOUSE, MUUBAA LEATHER TROUSERS, JILL SANDER CLUTCH AND ADIDAS STAN SMITH SNEAKERS A few weeks ago I was invited in Berlin by the German brand StreetOne for a fun design project. We met up for an inspiration workshop in the most beautiful loft. Together with Dutch colleague bloggers: Rosanne from Billie Rose, Noor from Queen of Jetlags and a few German Bloggers we’ve designed a cube that represent “The Shape of December“. Starting on the 7th of December you can bring out your vote on your favourite design. It will be amazing if you OF COURSE can vote for me! Haha. To get a glimpse of what we were doing in Berlin, check out the video underneath.
