New in: pastel love

Oh how I love pastels... I have always loved them, but since they're now in season I can cruise the shops looking for the perfect shades to fit my skintone. I'am quite pale and not all pastels look good on that kind of skintone. Here are some of my latest find... ánd my version of a lovely DIY project I stumbled upon recently.
Another trendy item we can't seem to ignore are perspex clutches. Fendi...Valentino... Charlotte Olympia; they all had a specimen in their collections over the last few years. It's not a new invention, during the fifties lucite clutches were very popular and I'm pretty sure the modern-day versions are inspired by the authentic ones. I really love them (old ánd new) but most of the times they are quite expensive; so why not make your own! I followed in the footsteps of many bloggers before.... because I have seen the DIY-clutch projects in many shapes and sizes. But it took me a while to find the perfect sized box myzelf. So here is my version!
Acrylic box + vintage-y doorknob= clutch!

River Island strappy sandals; bought at the RI-Elle night with a nice discount

Strappy H&M sandals... love the rose metallic 

Voila! My Blackberry, some perfume and a wallet in there is all I need

Pretty shiny details

You can buy these knobs at Xenos for instance! The box was the wrapping for a perfume bottle.

I see myself!

Gorgeous mint green vintage sequin blazer


  1. Love the blazer and the rose metallic shoes! You can also find those doorknobs at vintage markets like the Waterlooplein.

  2. Ik wil niet weten waar je die knop hebt gehaald maar wel het doorzichtige doosje!!!


    1. Dat was een verpakking van een parfum flesje! Ik zoek zelf nog steeds een winkel waar ze verkocht worden; dan kan ik er meer maken.

  3. Wat een origineel idee! Lekker crea hoor! x

  4. oh geez, wat een toffe clutch! Ik moet ook weten wanneer jij weet waar je die plastic boxjes kunt halen!


... it makes my day!
