Store monogamy?

Is there such a thing as store monogamy? If so, I must be involved in a serious monogamous relationship with a store called zara. It's the number one place where I can satisfy my shopping needs within a student's budget.

This delicious sheer, long white t was only 18 euro's! I'm expecting to get a lot of wear out of it, and not just this summer. Outfit picture is to follow within the next few days!
Which store do you never leave empty handed?

Black and white, get it right

Black and white almost always works. These gorgeous creations by Alexander Wang give a good example of how to recycle your pretty black items when the temperature rises.
ps. The bottom right picture is my perfect summer outfit. Casual chic. Slightly androgynous. Lovely.

And I could never bring you flowers

Floral fabrics can be very sweet and innocent. So I like to pair them with a blazer and heels or boots for some more edge. Yesterday I got this one from zara and it's adorable!
It has pleated details on the front, almost like ruffles, and a black slip dress on the inside that pops up under the arms and neckline because the floral dress is cut a bit lower.
I got to wear it today because it´s so sunny! Sunny weather always makes me happy.

Need for studs

This little number was in need of some studs. I like how it turned out! Will probably do some on the back as well.

Shoot me with your Laser gun

Laser 3.14 is a graffiti artist that writes slightly poetic / philosophical lines on walls all over the city. Whenever I’m cycling through Amsterdam, I keep my eyes open for them as they're hidden everywhere! I wondered if he knew that people like myself look out for his work. Imagine my surprise when a few days ago I read: ARE YOU READING ME? written just two doors from my apartment! Answer to Laser: I do and I love it!
