London Fashion Week 2016 // some new trends

Probably one of the most important events in the world of fashion; London Fashion Week. Unfortunately I could not be there as you have to be of actual importance to get invited. But I suppose the second best thing I could do is scroll through my Instagram and look up pictures and video’s of the event. Besides looking at all the runway shows and admiring the new creations, I also love seeing what all the people wore who got to go to the shows. Perhaps I love the latter even more.

This years Fashion Week Street Style did not dissapoint. If you know me, you know how much I love the 90’s grunge clothing with all its chokers, denim and leather. This year there was more than enough of that to be seen in London. But also lots of colour, denim and even more amazing trends and styles! I have to admit, I got a little carried away with looking at all the grunge outfits and now I kind of want to buy everything I saw..

As I just said; the 90’s grunge were back again for this Fashion Week. An abundance of chokers, painted on jackets and overall edgyness. This one has to be my number one favourite trend of this year.

The next trend that noticed while scrolling through my Instagram was big, nerdy glasses. Now I don’t know if these were real or fake glasses, but honestly, they looked really cool. I am a massive nerd and eventhough I don’t even need glasses, I kind of want them now.

A pop of colour was also something that seemed to be a trend on the London streets. Whether it was wearing colour as a bag, as your hair or as your clothes. I am still trying to convince my mum that lilac hair is cooler than she thinks. (she won’t let me dye my hair..)

From lots of colour to, probably, the complete opposite; black and white. Simple, classy, and very elegant.

Last, but most definitely not least; denim. I have been very big on denim lately. From denim jeans to denim jackets. Or even both at the same time! Yes, you hear me right, dubble denim is starting to become an accaptable thing again! Whether you style your denim in a very elegant and girly way or a grunge and edgy way, it’s totally up to you!

Happiness Boutique // style review

So quite a while ago already, Happiness Boutique started following me on Twitter. If you don’t know who or what Happiness Boutique is, it is an online shop for clothing and jewelry. A few weeks ago it was mothersday here in Holland. So I saw the perfect opportunity to give Happiness Boutique a go and see what they had to offer.

First of all, let me say that very often online shops are very annoying to browse on; everything is mixed up and it’s just plain confusing. Happiness Boutique however, has everything nicely sorted out. You can simply click on the sort of item that you’d like to see more of; I chose necklaces. And then you can even pick if you want to look through layered necklaces, statement necklaces, delicate necklaces and so on. I decided that for my mum it would be best to look through ‘subtle statement necklaces’. Not only did they have loads to chose from, it was also all so cute and pretty! I was very pleased to say the least.

I ordered the necklace and now all I had to do was wait. The delivery could have been quicker considering it only had to come from Germany. (which, in case you don’t know, is right next to Holland). But that’s okay because it was right on time for mothersday.

When the necklace arrived, I was so excited! The packaging was so cute, you wouldn’t even believe! The necklace came in a little white box. Within the box I found a little note saying ‘grandma’s jewelry care’ with some tips on how to care for your jewelry. The necklace also came with a little polaroid and on the back they wrote a little personal message; ‘to lovely Anne’. I thought this was so cute! To finish it off, at every delivery they give you a bookmark with a quote. My quote was; “I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day, and I believe in miracles” – Audrey Hepburn.

Not the least important; the necklace. My mum was very happy with it and the quality was great. The necklace is very lightweight which I think is a good thing. Heavy necklaces are just a burden to wear.

All in all I was very pleased with Happiness Boutique and if you’re anything like me and you love all things jewelry, I’d definitely reccommend you to check them out!
