OMG, I can't wait, I can't wait, I can't wait.
Next month Avalon and I are going to Antwerp, especially for the fabulous store we discovered in London (actually I knew it before, but in London I really fell in love), and I'm going to buy so much. Seriously, I have this urgent feeling to shop. I have to.
Anyway, look at all these beautiful things.

Like a Rolling Stone

You never turned around to see the frowns on the jugglers and the clowns
When they all come down and did tricks for you
You never understood that it ain't no good
You shouldn't let other people get your kicks for you

There's a fine line between a skewer and a decent sense of humor

Janelle Monae: "Many Moons"

I know why you hesitate
Burned by all the fake
Lovers that you had before
They push you down and gave you hate
But don't believe the things they say
'Cause baby, you're a genius, you're a star

London Fashion Week s/s 2011

God, I wish I could be there.
Here some of my favourite collections till now:

Topshop Unique:

Matthew Williamson:

Maria Francesca Pepe:

Alexander McQueen, rest in peace.


My Audrey Hepburn Collection rocks. I luuuuuv her way of acting, it's so funny and adorable. She always plays this daring woman who knows what she wants and isn't afraid of anything, but still very sweet and friendly.

Like the line on the Breakfast at Tiffany's cover: 'Audrey Hepburn plats that daring darling Holly Golightly to a new high in entertainment delight!'

Anyway, recently I saw 'My Fair Lady', a film that started as a musical. So, you know, a movie with a lot of singing in it. Mostly, I don't really like that sorts of movies but this one was very funny actually.

The story is about Eliza Doolittle, a Cockney girl who sells flowers to earn some money and who talks with a very rude accent. She takes speech lessons from professor Henry Higgins, a phoneticist, so she can turn out to be a proper lady.

In the middle of the movie there really was an Intermission, like they had it in the old times. And the dvd seriously stopped for 5 minutes, really funny. The end is marvelous, I feel like I'm saying that about every movie I write about, but it really is.

The songs are not my kind of music, it's sweet, but that's all. Though the rhymes Eliza has to learn are cool: 'The rain in Spain stays mainly in the plain'.

Yes, you should definitely see it! It's a classic Audrey Hepburn movie and I love it.

I love everything about the book 'Influence' from Mary-Kate and Ashley. The lay-out is marvelous, their way of interviewing is very honest and the artists who they have interviewed really have something to say. And the pictures are wonderful of course.

I have to admit I don't think the Olsen Twins are the best actresses ever. As a kid I loved their movies but nowadays I adore them because of their style. Although Ashley's busier with her own label, I like Mary-Kate's style best.

Here are some pages of the book, so you can take a look in it.
