Who is your fashion inspiration?

I don't have a specific person that is my ultimate fashion inspiration. I usually get my fashion inspiration from random tumblr pictures, outfit pictures from other people and mostly from the runway. Though, I have to say Christine Centenera always makes me feel inspired by the way she puts together an outfit and the combination she makes that'll flatter her body. I love it. You should really watch closely how she dresses and how she seems to pull off the right clothing pieces all together.

What is one thing you always carry in your bag?

That's actually a couple of things: A bottle of water, vaseline (for my dry lips), my wallet, my sunglasses and a pen.

What is your current favourite fashion trend?

ahh.. that's a good question.. it's difficult when you say 'trend', because ultimately you decide what's a fashion trend for you or not. So I'd have to change that into 'what's my current favorite fashion must-have?'. This would probably be an-almost-sheer-flowy-blouse! But that's because it's almost Spring over here. If it would be winter, which it technically still is, I'd say a faux fur scarf.

What is the current trend you dislike the most?

uhm. those Jeffrey Campbell Lita boots.

Why did you start your blog?

I started my blog as an emotional outlet, but when I found out about a whole new world started to open for me. That's where I got to see all these wonderful people with their amazing blogs. I started trying to find my own little place in this 'blogworld' and I am really proud of my blog! I had a little downfall with being too much focused on what my readers would want to see or read; I lost my passion behind it for a little while. But since a couple of months I'm back on track and I'm loving every bit of it. I get to express my creative, fashion side of me on my blog, which I keep very dearly to me.

Who takes your photos for you/ How do your take your photos?

Usually my sister photographs me, but sometimes my dad will take my photos (when I ask him a gezillion times).

How would you describe your style?

I don't have a specific type of style. Sometimes I want a little bit of a rock flavour, then I want to dress all girly girl like and then another day I just want to dress casual. I really dress on what kind of mood I'm in. But no matter what outfit I wear, I always keep a feminine touch it. I either put a belt around it, tight a knot somewhere or make it that much more flattering for my length or body. I can be casual yet chic, girly with a touch of rock, simple yet interesting.

What is one thing you are dying to buy this spring?

More denim shorts! (and blouses!)

Are you a shoes or bags kind of girl?

oohh that's a tough one.. eek! I don't know. I've never found a pair of shoes that fit my feet perfectly, because of my foot size, but I never seem to find thé perfect bag for a reasonable price ever! dilemma? I'll go for SHOES!:)

What is one thing that you regret buying?

All the wasted money on ugly ass SALE items!

If you could meet one person from the fashion industry/ a fashion icon who would it be?
Fun question! Hmm.. I can't pick one person:( I'll narrow it down to 6 people: Alexander Wang, Abbey Lee Kershaw, Terry Richardson, Ashley Olsen and Christine Centenera. I would have met a designer who amazes me everytime, a model who amazes me everytime, a photographer who I find interesting, a celebrity/fashion icon and fashion editor from a big magazine. The reason why I would choose these 6 people, is not because I find their pictures or way of life or way of designing stuff or the way of modelling the most amazing thing ever. It's the person behind all this, amazes and excites me in a way not really describable.

What is your favourite vacation destination?

Somewhere sunny, happy, with a blue sea and beautiful beaches!

What is one totally random fact you want others to know about you?
I can't stretch my left thumb all the way like my right thumb. I have no idea why it's like that.. I might've broken it when I was younger? My parents or other family don't even know what am I supposed to know? hahah...
