more wishes

Window shopping should be on top of my list of favourites things to do. I love making whish lists (of which you already have seen a preview). But every day is a new day with the most wonderful things for a (window) shopaholic. So I’ve rounded up some of my latest wishes ;(

Shoes must be on top of my list. I’ve got some shoes unwalkable and my boyfriend sighs every time he walks by my small collection. But you can’t have enough of a hbh (high black heel), can you? These are by Brain Atwood and they’re going for $280.00. Look here if you’re the Cinderella for this jaw dropping slipper in size 9 (39-40). 

One of the things I’m desperately after is a jumpsuit. Some time ago I’ve told you about my mum’s red jumpsuit I so desperately wanted, but last time I saw her se told me she’d trown it away! ;( So I’m looking for a replacement. Hopefully I’ll find something less expensive, ’cause at $150.00 this size 6 (M) jumpsuit by AKA New York is a little bit out of my leage…

not only for women

Today I read a headline saying that Hugo Boss is going green. I was astounded. But when I read on, it became clear that it was just a publicity stunt and that it was about a collection with a golfing theme and that it was only named after the green (the grass on which they play golf). I was so disappointed, and even more so because male fair fashion ain’t that easy to find (at least I haven’t found anything for my boyfriend).

So maybe it’s time to take action and demand the greening up of men’s wear. ’Cause why should green shopping stop at the women’s department?

make your own trashion

Last week was the workshop ‘Van Voddenbaal tot Haute Couture’ (From Trash to Fashion) about which I’ve already written. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to go there (alas, work…) but I’m happy to announce there’s a second workshop with the same theme, held on wednessday the 2nd of May. It’s a little bit in the future, but such things need to be planned way ahead 🙂

Kermit the frog once sang ‘It’s not easy being green’ and he’s totally right. Luckily it’s becoming more and more easy. And know you don’t have slip in to inelegant underwear. ’Cause Peau Ehtique ables you to wear glamourous knickers, bra’s, undershirts (sorry, I don’t know how to call them) and slip dresses made form organic cotton. So get into your sixties mood and put on these lovable panties! For more info, check out their website.
