If you’re like me and can’t part with your summer clothes, it’s good to have some nice jackets and blazers on hand. You can still wear your short sleeved tops and shirt when you throw a cute little jacket on top.
On the 17th of october Forever 21 is opening a second store in Rotterdam with 1700 square meters of pure shopping pleasure. The American fashion brand settled on Dutch ground last year, when it opened it’s first store in Amsterdam. Unfortunately Amsterdam is not nearby for me, so I’m very excited their second store will be located in ‘the Koopgoot’ in Rotterdam’s city center.
In this post I’ll show you in a pictorial how to make this crop top with lantern sleeves. As a starting point I’ve used Burda pattern 11/2013 #124/125. This is a loose fitting tunic with a split neck. You do not need this exact pattern to follow along, every loose fitting tunic or shift dress pattern that resembles this will do. For example burda 07/2014 #116.
The school holiday is over, and that means that my sewing classes are starting again also. A good time to reflect on last year and make plans for the year to come.
The summer is coming to an end. But last weekend the dutch weather allowed us to enjoy a few more rays of sun, so I put on this white bohemian dress on my way to a birthday/housewarming party.
There’s been a sale in the Netherlands and I’ve been shopping you guys! I’ve hauled a lot of makeup and I’m going to show you exactly what I’ve purchased.
The nice thing about African print fabric is that it’s sold in pre cut pieces of 6 yeards. So you can sew multiple items out of one piece of fabric. Earlier I showed you a pencil skirt, and this time I’ll show you a peplum top I’ve made out of the same fabric.
Don’t you just love the Action? I simply can’t leave that store without buying something. And it will be no surprise to you that the beauty department is my favorite. On one of my last visits to the store I’ve found these lovely eyeshadow palettes.
Who doesn’t know the liquid lip paints from Coloured Raine? These lippies are so sought after, that they stay sold out. Once in a while they’ll restock. But a few hours and a website crash later, they’re all gone again. But I was finally able the get my hands on two colours I’ve been dying to get: Vanity Raine and Raine Fever. I reviewed them for you guys to see if they’re worth the hype.
