It's burlesque.



Since I've seen the movie Burlesque.. well, I've been kinda obsessed by it. Burlesque dancing is so sexy and pretty, I love it. And the outfits.. Oh my god, I need more glitters and feathers in my life! Burlesque dancers, such as Dita Von Teese, are so pretty and classy.
Aah I wanna dye my hair black and put on some sexy glitter dress and dance the night away, don't you?

We go up and down.

I've been willing to do this sort of updates, like a photo-diary, for a long time. And lately I feel so inspired! :)
Hope you like it too! Let me know.

You just have to try.



OK. I've seen a lot of beautiful engagement rings, but this.. wow. I fell madly in love with the first one. I just love everything about it! The colour, the diamond, how it's nature-inspired.. It's breathtaking. The designer of this beautiful jewellery is Kristin Coffin and I think she's a genius, you should definitely check out her Esty shop!

And she goes nanana


BAM! Don't worry, you're still on La mode-rétro! I decided to totally change my layout, so here it is :) I wanted something more.. professional. I also wanna post more photographs from now on.
Anyway, this is my new bikini. I ordered it at ASOS and it's pretty damn cute, don't you think?

I know everything.







Today I went on a little shopping spree with Ka chun! It was pretty cold today, brrr.

It's getting hotter.

Welcome to the familiy.







Yesterday I received these lovely Orly nailpolishes: Lunar Eclipse (from the Cosmic FX collection, loveee it) and Basket Case (the perfect barbie pink).
I really recommend Orly, the bottles are enormous, the colours are super pretty and the formula is great and really easy to work with.
Lunar Eclipse is a beautiful shimmery duochrome. Most of the time it looks blue, but sometimes you'll see a hint of purple. I already had Halley's Comet and Space Cadet from the Cosmic FX line, but this is also a really pretty colour and totally a must-have.
Basket Case is like.. the perfect Barbie pink. It's almost a bit fluorescent, so that's pretty cool.

Happy valentine.



Yay for youtube! This is my shoe collection :)

maandag 14 februari 2011

I can't seem to find the time.



I'm so sorry for the lack of updates the last couple of days. I'm having a huge fight with windows moviemaker and youtube/vimeo and I still can't upload any videos. Hopefully the beauty-review video and the shoecollection-video (which I filmed today) will be online very soon!
This is today's outfit.

donderdag 10 februari 2011

It's a simple fact.





This is what I wore today!
School isn't really busy right now. I spend my day watching series, doing some homework and planning my sweet 18! I'm turning 18 next month (write down in your diary; 1 March! ;)) so I'm planning on throwing a awesome birthday party. Do you have any ideas for the dresscode? (I LOVE costume party's, as you can see here and here) I want something... sophisticated and chique. But it also have to be something easy so everyone can dress up. Hmm...

Don't you dare.



Yesterday I bought new shoes. Again.
I don't know what's going on but all of the sudden I see all these fantastic shoes.. I can't resist! These are total sweethearts, with a little cute heel and a bow and aaah <3

I can't do this.







Today's outfit with my new flats! They're so cuteee wiejjj (I love them!)

dinsdag 8 februari 2011

Larger than lifesize.



Remember yesterday I said I wanted to buy some cool shoes? Well, I've found them! I was shopping a little bit with a friend when I ran into these cuties. They're exactly the same model as my favourite black flats, so I knew they would walk fantastic. And they had 50% discount! Sometimes it's just fate, don't you think?

Come to me, my love




Sometimes I just want to buy a pair of crazy shoes. An awesome colour or print would totally spice up my shoe collection (which contains black, black and.. black). I can imagine me walking down the street with those Kurt Geiger leopard heels or the Miu miu polkadot cuties.. Everyone would stare at my feet in total awe!
It's needless to say that they're quite expensive (exept for the Topshop ones) meh, too bad.

I'll take you with me.


What better way to start spring with a lovely collection of romantic items?
These are my absolute favourites of the new H&M conscious collection, 15 April in store.

vrijdag 4 februari 2011

I can feel it coming.







Today I received my Topshop order: this lovely MOTO ultimate skinny jeans. Let me tell you, these jeans are fan-tas-tic. They're super tight, but also really comfortable.
Two years ago I bought my first pair at Topshop and I was totally addicted to them. (my diehard followers remember which ones I'm talking about: the grey acid wash jeans!)
I already love these ones!

And I say: Whoohoo!








A friday musicday this week! haha. These are some songs I've been listening to lately, very different but all very cool :)

donderdag 3 februari 2011

I know what you need.





Trying out a friend's lens, and it's pretty cool. This is today's outfit, found this white blouse somewhere in the back of my closet haha.

Greatest show on earth.


Aah I want to wear this outfit! I love Topshop :D
