A perfect little winter dress

I’ve always loved wearing dresses. I love the feminine, classy style I associate them with. Since it’s getting colder here in The Netherlands I wanted a dress that would keep me warm even on the coldest of days.

DIY fashion | Ellery inspired top

One of the nice things about being able to sew your own clothes is that it can save you some coin. If you put some effort into it, you can copy your favorite runway looks for a fraction of the price. And so I created this top inspired by the Lolita top from the 2014 fall collection of the Australian brand Ellery.

It’s full blown autumn here in the Netherlands, and even though I love fall fashion I can’t help but miss the summer. This outfit is my way of looking back, and longing for the summer that’s long gone.

Outfit | Black loves white

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.

DIY lantern sleeve crop top

Recently I’ve found a little gem at Zara: A striped crop top with the most perculiar sleeves. They’re called lantern or bell sleeves, I think. It was love at first sight, so I took that gorgeous top home with me. Unfortunately, we had to part ways soon thereafter, since it didn’t fit correctly. I’ve searched their website for the correct size, but it wasn’t available there either. Checking back a week later, to see if they’d restocked, I discovered that they removed the top from the webshop entirely.

Outfit | Bohemian summer

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.

DIY ruffled pencil skirt

When I saw this pencil skirt in the Burda magazine I knew I had to sew it. A ruffled pencil skirt with a draped detail is totally my thing.

Casual friday

You’ve mostly seen me wearing chic outfits here on blacklovesgold, but I do also like dressing casual. At the moment, I’m loving these ripped jeans. They’re so comfortable, and have that nonchalant, stylish appearance. I’ve combined them with a poncho with this fabulous print, and a pair of cute white pumps.

70s chic

Hi Beauties! I hope you’re having a lovely pentecost weekend. Mine has been amazingly productive, since I’ve managed to do four outfit photo shoots in one day! Normally my lovely boyfriend takes the pictures, but this time my son helped me out. He photographed this outfit post, and he did a pretty good job didn’t he? Two of the other shoots I’ve done myself, using a tripod and a remote. That also worked out pretty well, so I hope that from now on I’ll be able to get more outfit posts out.

DIY peplum skirt in African print

My love for sewing my own clothes was fueled by the love for African prints, or so called Ankara fabric. I used to see the most beautiful clothing on Pinterest, in the most gorgeous, colorful prints. I fell in love and wanted it all! But where do you buy something like that?
