As you all might know, today was the launch of the Lanvin collection of H&M and off course I couldn't resist to buy at least something of it.. but I will have to wait until I get back to the Netherlands to open up my deliveries!

So I got up at 7 am to set myself up for the massive attack on the online shop.. From prior experience of standing in line at the door made me choose for the more comfortable option of shopping at home:)..

Yes call me crazy but I had two computers as reinforcement! So as soon as the clock on my laptop hit 8.00 AM I started to click on the shop.. one went immediately into the waiting line..GREAT.. so much for that! But luckily the other one did get in so I could shop at ease without having to get into cat fights with other women..

So rara the theme of today is my interpretation of Lanvin.. When I think of Lanvin I think of volume, rich fabrics and details. The collection of Lanvin for H&M is somewhat in line with this but it incorporates more outspoken colors. Besides the colors are combined in such a way that they really pop into your eyes...so as color loving person I was really inspired by this!

Key ingredients of my Lanvin style: flowers, pearls, waist belt, some sparkles and a petticoat to get the volume effect..

Mademoiselle Beetlejuice

What a life, what a life.. I've had a lovely vacation back in the Netherlands and saw my family and friends. So I'm all set to get back to the normal life here in France which is not bad at all.. Sunny weather, 16 degrees and no classes until next wednesday..I really have to enjoy all my free time now as this might be the last year that I'm studying.
In the meanwhile when is wasn't posting anything I've been working on clothes for a fashion show the 6th of december. The fashion show is organized by the program director of my master and I'm working with 6 girls on the clothes for this Indian inspired fashion show. While I was working I realized how much I love it that I have the chance to do something which I really really like.. So never be afraid to follow your heart and take chances to become whatever you love to do in life!!

Always combine something that is oversized with something that is tight otherwise it looks as if you put on a garbage bag..

Lovely sun:)

What I really like is the combination of turquoise with black and white, because it really emphasizes and brings out the turquoise as an eyecatcher!
