NEW IN: Vagabond Modesto Boots

Happy new year everyone! I know I’m probably a bit late, but I thought better late than never.
Did you have a nice New Year’s Eve? Mine wasn’t very spectacular; I was with my family a couple days on holiday in Southern Germany to ski. When the clock struck twelve times, we watched the fireworks on the mountains, lit some sparklers off and didn’t stay up late because we had to get up early the next morning to ski. It’s weird to stand at 10:00 am on the mountains and realize that there is a whole new year ahead of us. I wish you all the best for 2015 and I hope it will be a fantastic year!

This article is dedicated to my first purchase of 2015. As you know, during December and January sale is on full swing, and I took advance of that. I thought it would be nice to share my purchase with you guys and give a review of the webshop Vagabond where I ordered it. Enjoy!

When it started to get colder in Holland I thought it was time to search for leather boots. These kind of shoes were missing in my closet and I wanted to change that. I had low cowboy boots with a squared toe in mind, and by coincidence I’ve found the perfect ones.
I saw that a blogger who I follow had posted a picture on Instagram with exactly the shoes I was looking for. The shoes are from the brand Vagabond and called “Modesto”. When I looked them up, I saw to my delight that they were marked down 50%, from 140,- to 70. In my view a bargain, ‘cause the boots are made of real leather and I probably still wearing them in a few years. I doubted a while between the black ones and the taupe colored ones, but eventually I chose the black ones because I can combine them better. Also the quality of the shoes are amazing. So all in all, a timeless purchase which I’m going to enjoy for a long time.

The webshop where I’ve ordered my boots is vagabond.com. It’s a Swedish brand and I’m very pleased with my experience with this shop. First of all: the delivery time takes not to long. I ordered the shoes on Sunday and Wednesday they’ve been delivered. They were packed up in a shoebox that was inside a bigger box for extra protection. The delivery costs contains 6,-. Because I had doubts if I should order size 4 or 5, it was nice to know that you can return your purchase for free. 
The only downside to this shop is in my opinion the payment method. You can only pay with a credit card and since I don’t have one, that’s not so handy. More options (like PayPal) would be nicer.
But apart from that, it’s a fine webshop and I would recommend it.

What is your first purchase of 2015?

MY FAVORITES: Fashion Blogger 10x

Hi guys! First I want to apologize for the three week of silence on my blog. I had a lot of important tests in the last couple of weeks at school and I had to focus on them. I think it’s a pity that I have to leave blogging on the table on that kind of moments, but at the moment it is what is it. Fortunately, now the test week is over, I’m facing some less hectic weeks and I can start blogging again. Hurray!

I spend my free time partly on bloglovin.com, a site where you can follow other bloggers so you can see for example their latest outfits post or the newest review of a beauty product. Also, people can follow you blog, what will cause you reach a larger audience so more people get in touch with your blog. On the right on this page you can see how many people are following my blog. Thus far the number of followers is 82, so almost 100! I’m really looking forward to reach this milestone :) 

On the moment I follow over 100 blogs, but of course I don’t read all the articles that bloggers whom I follow post. I have simply no time for that. Nevertheless I always try to read the articles of certain bloggers because I get a lot of inspiration from them that I sometimes can process in my own style and clothing choices. The bloggers who I’m talking about are mainly fashion bloggers, ‘cause I’m not so much engaged in make-up yet. For this week’s article I want to share my favorite fashion bloggers with you. Enjoy!

STREET STYLE: Moscow Fashion Week SS15

Hi there! In September we all followed Fashion Week Milan, New York, London and Paris closely. Even if you couldn’t been there in person, like me, social media made sure that you kept up to date. The above-mentioned cities are of course the crème de la crème of Fashion Week so only the most famous designers can show their newest collections there. Last week it was Fashion Week in Moscow, a lot less popular but should definitely not be forgotten.

One of the nicest things about Fashion Week is the street style that comes with it. You see the most fascinating outfits passing by and that gives me such a huge inspiration boost! That’s why I’ve collected for this weeks article the best FW Moscow street style pics. Let’s get inspired!
pics from le-21eme.com and theoutsider.us

Where do you get your inspiration from?

Love,

LET'S DISCUSS: Alexander Wang x H&M Collection

Hey loves! Holiday is for me unfortunately almost over and tomorrow I’m back in the classroom. I’ve enjoyed this free week so much: I've slept in, watched Netflix a lot (I’ve discovered a new series “Once Upon A Time” and I highly recommend it!), read a book which I hadn’t done for a long time ‘cause I had too little time and spend a day in my former hometown Amsterdam. It was nice to go back to my old neighborhood Oud-West and see what’s changed. What really made me happy to see was that it’s totally brightened up with cute little cafes in former vacant buildings such as “Bar Spek” and “Berry”. Nice to visit sometime!
In brief: I had a really nice week. How was your week?

Yes, yes, yes! The moment where Fashion World has waited for so long is finally here: the annual cooperation of H&M with a great designer is within a few days finally for sale. This year it’s Alexander Wang’s turn and that bodes very well. Though the collection is not available until November 6th (a few lucky ones have been able to obtain a few items), it does has already been released. Below are all the items of the Alexander Wang x H&M collection. Enjoy!
If I’m being totally honest I have to say that I find it a bit disappointing. It’s too sporty if you ask me and I think it’s a pity that the logo WANG or the initials AW are abound. Yet I’m a big fan of some items including the leather backpack and leather pants. The black cocoon coat is also really beautiful! 
In short: it’s not quite what I expected but there are a few gems in between.

I’m very curious what you think of this collection. Feel free to give your opinion in the comments below ‘cause that’s the whole point of a “LET’S DISCUSS-post”. 

What do you think of the Alexander Wang x H&M collection?

Love,
Roos
