Sun is shining, the weather is sweet...

The weather has been so lovely here in Holland lately. Time to break out the sunglasses!! I picked up 3 different ones at H&M in the past two weeks. So here's my little sunnies haul.

Over sized Wayfarers in black & tortoise.

And an Aviator

Of course I 'needed' a new case to go with my new lovelies and I've been eyeing this one at Accessorize for a little while.

Little side story on the aviators: Two years ago just after I bought my Chloe Tamaris, I spotted the Michael Kors Tahiti.
Unfortunately I have a little rule to help keep my finances on the healthier side of things: I'm allowed 1 pair designer sunglasses per year. So I couldn't have both and I had to pass on the Michael Kors. This little find makes up for that and at € 7,95 I'm extra pleased, because the Tahiti was € 289. Good prices come to those who wait. :-)

Color blocking done right...

Colorblocking is a huge trend this spring / summer, but I've noticed that the fabric is just as important as the colors you choose. If the fabric isn't right (read: expensive looking), my fear is that I'll just end up looking like I'm wearing my latest thrift store haul.

To be on the safe side I'm going to stick with deep rich jewel tone colors and luxurious fabrics like satins and silk. I will also be reaching for gold accessories, like belts & big gold cuffs, just to tie in with the opulence of the fabrics.

My inspiration?

Aquilano Rimondi Spring 2011

And of course Gucci Spring 2011

I think Rihanna got it spot on with this outfit.

I'm having a moment with Taylor Tomasi Hill, Marie Claire's Style and Accessories Director, and her extraordinary... well.. accessories.

The Corset.

The Chocker.

The Cuffs.

The Sunnies.

The Necklace.

The Shoes.

I like her shoes... Redux...

Remember those stunning Giuseppe Zanotti booties Eva Longoria was sporting a while back?

Well... I've found a similar look for way, way less.

Say hello to Ash' Heidi Sandals

These lovelies are available at for €153,95 / $215... also in black and a beige/black combo.

Which do you like best?

I'm back...

So I've been gone for a while... you and stuff, but as a come back present I'm treating you to something extra special...

Yes, meeeeeee. :-)

No just joking, not a photo of me, but of my hair!! I had a side shaved off yesterday and I love it so much!! I did a post on this hairstyle back in 2009 when it first became popular. It's not really that it took me nearly two years to pluck up the courage, but more that it feels so right at this stage in my life and I'm so glad I did it!

This picture was taken in my Mom's office, so ignore the clutter (and Barney ehem...) in the back ground and fix your eyes on my lovely new friend on my wrist! It's from Triwa's Miami Deco Collection that came out in Europe in 2008, which is probably the reason why I got it for about €90 in the sales back in January. This pastel green color is called Turquoise Flamingo. The Miami Deco Collection just came out stateside, so this baby is still available on their US website:

So there you go a 2 for 1 comeback post. That does make up for being away for so long, right? No? Hmmm...
