BLENDING TOPICS: Mirthe Kluck.




So I'm back on the BLEND blog! and this time I'm doing a young talent serie of interviews about my friends, people I've recently met, or people whom I've never even met and just simply think that deserve the exposure! but most importantly, people whose work have seriously struck me.

For the first one I had a really interesting and cute conversation with fine art artist Mirthe Kluck and ex classmate of mine back in the fashion and textile design department. If you wanna know what she's all about, read the full interview after the jump:

EARLY WINTER.


This is a sneak peak of a serie of shoots Jean Poodle and I are working on for ELVIS models' NEW FACES offspring. Styled by me and modelled by the gorgeous Thijs. We would be nowhere either without Cynthia Schippers from hair and make-up.

Everything I styled was Avelon except for the tank on the last picture which is from the my new 2 line; pitty you can't see the leather pocket underwater though!

I personally decided to use a lot of their womenswear F/W 12 sweaters and silk tops, cause I love me a boy rocking girl's clothes and pulling it off; AND also cause I wanted the whole thing to have this real summery feeling although the styling was being heavily winter, sporty and all cashmere-y about it.

We shootin the next one this firday! X

KINDNESS: FOREVER INVINCIBLE.

Sorry for the absence!

After Brussels then came a whole week Amsterdam and then all kinds of surprise events back home. Today I need to keep on interning, then go borrow clothes, borrow jewels at the antiques, come back home and off to Amsterdam again to Weekday's official store opening. Jessica six will be giving her all at the opening's afterparty with the rest of the Knuckle Duster Agency babies!

School's almost starting again for a lot of people, and I of course have already been checking out the new meat at the introduction days. Quite Blair Waldorf of me, but I need to know who I'll be dealing with around school whole upcoming academic year.

New York's hip hop scene keeps on knocking me off my socks with everyday that goes by on the other hand. There's a brand new kid, song, beat popping up as we....blog? they all so fresh, effortless and mofokin ON POINT. My BLEND interview with Wavy Spice will come out anytime from now; A MUST READ! realer than the realest.

IRRELEVANCY WILL BE IGNORED.

So the Brussels trip is over and I spent a whole (STEAMY) day back in the NL at the beach right before the week starts. I don't know wether I'm hangover from the constant icy rosé sips under the sun, or just recovering from one delicious food coma after the other. But one thing I do know is that the Pradel's gardens had my heart once again. And my stomach hurts.

Now that I think about it there were so many killer pictures I could have made during this trip to show you guys, but on the other hand it were 40 degrees we were dealing with, (don't no bitch felt like making no pictures) and once in a while one should lay down all of them cyber bugs and just BE............in a cold bath tub with doritos and diet coke for example.

This shirt is one of the many presents I got from my BF this time! I'll be showing the rest little by little. Pin stripe oxford shirt, just keepin it real cute oversized Hamptons style; with a leather hat to kink things up of course.

Whatelse can I say? I got beach hair and highways have holograms nowadays. Life's good.

PURPLE KISSES ON YOUR NECK, THINKING ABOUT THE DAY WE MET.

pics by Jean Poodle.

Right before I started writing this I realised how funny it is to have made these new outfit pics in front of the yellow container next to my house.

Cause this big fat yellow container was my "tripod", my photographer for a long time every morning before I went to school. Therefore the static almost identical kind of self-portraits I used to make and re-post on VIUTIFUL. But since I don't have a camera anymore, I guess having a real photographer and a boyfriend be the same person under my roof was the perfect kind of situation for this next step I'm making.

I'm sorry it's only outfit posts nowadays btw! but we have been having so much fun while shooting them everytime that I think we're having a blogging-phase here; it will pass don't worry! or at least I will have more of the usual Holy dreamy-street content in between as soon as I get my hands on a new smart phone or camera.

I'm barefoot cause today was indoor-day. On indoor days I like to wear outfits I still don't have shoes to match with. So as long as you don't go anywhere you will always look perf, natural and relaxed instead of ........"almost there".

SWEET SERIAL KILLER I LOVE YOU JUST A LITTLE TOO MUCH MUCH MUCH.

 pics by Jean Poodle.

Yesterday was one of those beautiful open sky days in NL.

And you know what happens around here when the sun makes pressence; we become walking sunshine slaves, blind-folded by the heat...hungry for summer fun.

Amsterdam never looked as beautiful as yesterday. Or maybe is just this ecstatic vibe I'm entering once again in my life. I'm so happy positivism has grabbed me, pulled my hair and said: WAKE UP. It's amazing what our minds can do.

As summer passes us by on the other hand, my wardrobe keeps on having serious encounters with my scissors every morning in my atelier which SO conveniently happens to be placed in between the bedroom, hall mirror and walk-in closet.

I guess it's obvious where this outfit has been cropped, sliced and re-folded.

ps. How beautifully composed is Lana's new concept of a "Serial Killer"?

THE SERPENT VS THE TREE OF LIFE.

pics by Jean Poodle.

These snake print leggings I once fell in love with and bought at the H&M had never seen daylight before this moment earlier today.

It's the kind of piece you need the ratchets to get over and forget before you're finally able to wear them. It's only THEN when people can see them by how amazing they are and not where they came from. And then they ask: "damn where they from?" and you're like "oh my mom rocked them in the 80's k thx bye".

This cotton muslin shirt is one of my favourites. It's semi see-through, so light and soft. I never iron it on purpose. I also cut the bottom edges cause it was too long and I like me a cute fray too. Never forget to mis-button your shirts ppl! if the look is non-chalant enough you might pull it off.

Shorts used to be viscose poly pants; also met my scissors.

WHEN WILL WE ALL TURN?

Photobucket

For so long I've obeyed that femenine decree
I've always contained your desire to hurt me

But when will I turn and cut the world?

My eyes are coral, absorving your dreams
My heart is a record of dangerous scenes
My skin is a surface to push to extremes

But when will I turn and cut the world? 
----------
I don't think there's anything I could write down here that could even explain how beautifully I feel about this all.

LAURA YOU'RE MORE THAN A SUPERSTAR.




PURE PRIDE CUTENESS.

I think I finally know what magic looks like.

Just makin Amsterdam a cuter place, that's all I'm saying.

This night not only looked but also FELT like magic.

HOOD ANGEL.

So here I am, in an ice-hockey tee pretending to be all basketball about it. Just bringin' cuteness to the game.

Today is gay pride day in the NL, taking place in Amsterdam. And as proud as I might be of being who I am today, I honestly think there's more worrying issues to FIX and talk about in these big cities in relation with the rest of people around us than things to blindly celebrate.

On the other hand, my love and curiousity for Wavy Spice grows with everyday that goes by. Recently interviewed by WONDERLAND online, she dropped the bomb about an upcoming mixtape called "Felicity Island" and I . JUST . CAN'T . WAIT. Me and her have plans of our own on the other hand which I will be soon displaying and telling you all about around here.

Still, there's tons of friends waiting out there today for this hood angel to fuck shit up around town, so let's see where pride leads to tonight!

HAPPY PRIDE TO ALL MY QUEERS AND GIRLS! 
Cause us gays would be nothing without our girls, and our girls would be nowhere without us.

WHITE CRIME.

pics by Lucci.

Every summer since two years ago, there's this period in which white is all I want to wear.

I'm not gonna lie and when sporting this look you attract a lot of attention. Good and bad. But that's just the price to pay if you're not living in a metropolis and if you're a guy having fun with a certain style. I still refuse to dress-down, those people don't deserve it.

A COMFORTABLE SECRET.

 pics by Lucci.

This is what I wore last night to a sort of black-tie-ish dinner party with friends.

I cracked this morning cause my sister saw me and was like: were you wearing that last night?! (confused/horrified face on).

It was great! I wore a full navy blue jersey outfit, on the verge of piyama, with a touch of wool and leather. I was DRESSED. It felt so nice to have been so comfortable and to have secretly fooled the dresscode.

DEAR DEARS

THE JOURNEY
