OUTFIT: RED SUMMER

Red is a very trendy color. It represents love, fun, and other fervent feelings. While I was in Colombia, I went through my older sister´s closet and found the perfect red top for the summer season! The top is not part of my 33 items, but still, I wanted to show you how I like to combine it. Last month I had my second analog shooting and this color was perfect for the vintage effect of the film. These are my favorite pictures of the shooting:

These analog pictures were made by the photographer Floris Nijensikkens Check his work HERE and his Instagram HERE.

CAN YOU BELIEVE THESE OUTFITS ARE FROM SECOND-HAND CLOTHES?

Thanks to my friends Gita and Tamara I discovered the second-hand world. Back when I was living in Cologne we used to go every Saturday to the “Unicenter flea market”. Once people started asking about where my clothes come from and how come they look so cool my fascination for second-hand shops and flea markets became so big that now over 80% of my clothes are second-hand and I am not ashamed of it. Through out last year I put up some outfits together that I showed on my Instagram. Here are 10 of my favorite looks:

OUTFIT: THE COOLEST BOMBER JACKET

The times that I find the coolest second hand clothes, is when I go with an empty  idea of what I want to find.

A couple of weeks ago, I went to a charity shop to bring away some things and I stopped by at the clothes section. There I found it. A black oversize bomber jacket. I saw it, immediately tried it on and it felt like in the movies! You have to understand that I come from Barranquilla, Colombia and I never wore a jacket there like this before. The weather was just too hot for that. Now that I live in The Netherlands, I love that I can wear all kind of clothes and finally have my own black bomber jacket.

The next time you go to a charity shop, don´t be scare to check the clothes section. You never know what treasure you might find! Give it a try and show me your finds  😉

OUTFIT: THRIFTING IN ORDER TO STEP OUT OF THE COMFORT ZONE

 

 

I love to go thrifting because I never know what I might find. It is always an adventure. This time I found this amazing red, black and golden blazer/jacket. Normally I wouldn’t buy these kind of items, out of fear, not daring to wear it. But as soon as I saw it in the charity shop I fell in love with it and decided to give it a try. This jacket even reminded me of a ‘Michael Jackson kind of style’. I took it home and realized that it would be easier to combine it than I thought. I can wear it with a t-shirt, a blouse or a tank top. Going to secondhand shops is a good thing to help you to get out of your fashion comfort zone. Give it a try and show me your finds 😉

OUTFIT: BACK TO BLACK

 

 

 

 

I love all-black outfits with a special touch. It makes me feel confident, smart and happy. This shoot is done in Amersfoort. My photographer and friend Marisa has a great eye for finding amazing places in my boring city Amersfoort. Because of her I start to like the place more and more!

 

I made this outfit with clothes that I don’t wear anymore. Sometimes it happens that I wear clothes for a while and then I get tired or them and leave the clothes in the back of my closet. This is the reason why I’m selling these items. I recommend you to do the same! The clothes I´m selling still look good and can go another round. The top used to be from my older sister and I bought the blazer five years ago. I used it so often, that now I can’t see it anymore (It happens right?). The leggings and the shoes I found in a flea market in Amersfoort.
