Today my holiday started, finally a whole week off. And since it's April the 30th, it is also a national holiday in holland: Queensday. I must say: I hate it.
This Drawing was made in 1910 by Leon Bakst, Costume designer for the "ballet Russes" in Paris during the first decades of the 20th century. This particulair drawing was for a costume of "Sheherazade" the women who told the well-known story "One thousand and one nights." Influences of the costumes for this particular play were still seen in the late 1920's.
I just love pocket watches. Altough they're a tiny bit outdated and they make you look a tad like a freakish Charles-Dickens-loving nerd, I still love them. Now my dad brought me the perfect combination of an old pocket watch mixed with the right amount of modern style. Check out the most awesome watch-label I've seen in a very long time..
I thought it would be time to create another lookbook look so here is it. Ever since I bought my new coat about a month ago I felt like a communist spy. And I always keep my Iphone secretly in the little notebook I'm holding in the pic, so that's the inspiration for this look.
Usually I'don't add anything to these "simply sayings", but as I came across this little quote, I felt very inspired. People often ask me why we should pay attention to our outfits. I think we shouldn't be dressing for that special occasion only, not just for that one person. We should always take good care of ourselves, for our own good. Otherwise there's no reason in dressing up at all, any time. Don't do your work half: live life pretty.
What do these faces above have in common? They're all mentioned on the list of lists. Today Time magazine published it's list of all time 100 fashion icons. This list is published and adjusted once a year and all over the world people are fighting for a spot on the list.
See who's on it (and who's not, ghehe!)
