Lovely Library

There are a few pictures I owe you guys:
My jumpsuit:
Jumpsuit: it was my mom's, belt: vintage, T-shirt: Didi, tights: V&D.
My graffiti painting:

Talking about graffiti, me and my friends made more than 20 euro yesterday with selling our graffiti art. We were just messing around with aerosoles on wood, and then came up with the idea of ringing the doorbells of my neighbours. We sold all our paintings! Even a legging that we pimped up with graffiti. We had so much fun:).
I went to the library this week, and rented almost all the books of Jane Austen they had. I read Pride and Prejudice and loved it, so now I'm starting with Emma. I like her writing style a lot. I also rented four CD's;
The Pigeon Detectives - Emergency

Best track: Emergency
The Pigeon Detectives - Wait For Me

Best track: I'm not sorry

Best track: You'll find a way
Gabriella Cilmi - Lessons To Be Learned

Best track: Einstein
Emiliana Torrini - Me And Armini

Best track: Jungle drum
I also rented music sheets for the Pride and Prejudice movie theme song, Dawn. I just love this song, you can listen to it here: Dawn
I've done a lot of renting this week, because I also went to the video rental store. I rented Into The Wild (Emile Hirsch, Kristen Stewart), Burn After Reading(Brad Pitt, George Cloony), The Beach(Leonardo DiCaprio) and Amelie(Audrey Toutou). I love all these movies. Especially Amelie, it's a movie you absolutely have to see.

Audrey Toutou also plays in a movie I'm very excited about, Coco Avant Chanel.
You can watch the trailer here:
My mom bought a REAL DIOR JACKET in a second hand store for me. I'm so lucky...
Jeans and top: Only, jacket: vintage.
Thanks mom!
I've been considering to buy the dress on the left at the bottom. But it's 70 euro...:( I don't have that much clothing money...
Matthew Williamson for H&M
This is what I wore today:
Skirt: Pimpkie, T-shirt: Hema, vest: vintage.
I hope you could follow this messy post;). I hope I will be able to stick to one subject next time...
I'm currently listening to:
Born for this - Paramore

Real Street Art

There's something really cool going on in my hometown, The Hague. There are a lot of electricity buildings from Eneco in and around town, but they(Eneco) didn't take care of the buildings. They were all really dirty and with ugly graffiti tags on them. So the local museum decided to fight graffiti with graffiti, and they asked a lot of graffiti artists and adolescents to pimp up the buildings. They did a great job! When I cycle through town now, I see all this beautiful buildings with awesome graffiti pieces on them. It's real art.

I also took a graffiti workshop with a friend at the museum, and I absolutely loved it! I don't know, there's just something really cool about spraying paint to one work of art. We all got our own panel to spray, and I made an angel character. I will post a photo of it later, because it's really big and I couldn't take it home with me. I have to get it later... I think it will be nice decoration for my room.^^

A trend that makes me wanna Jump!

Jumpsuits! I like them so much. They're perfect for summer; they can be put on quickly, they go well with bikinis, and they're airy, so great for warm weather. I especially like them with a playful print, like flowers or tie-dye stuff. They're also fun in plaid. I bought two jumpsuits vintage on a second hand market, one with green and purple squares and one with blue and pink flowers, and I will definitely take them to my holiday destination: Morocco. You see jumpsuits a lot on the runway and on celebrities, but not so much on the streets, because you need a certain attitude to wear them.
On the runway:

Matthew Williamson


Marc by Marc Jacobs

On celebrities:
Katy Perry


Blake Lively

Pixie Geldof
Song: Laura Jansen- Single Girls (I heard this song for the first time today, and I love it!)

As promised, here are the outfits that I wore this week:

Blue skirt: Corel, T-shirt: Edc by Esprit, leggings: V&D, belt and necklace: vintage.
Jeans: Only, T-shirt: H&M, bracelets: Made with love, belt: Bershka.
Red dress: vintage, shirt: Temt, necklace: made it myself.
Jeans: Only, T-shirt: Hema; print by me, bracelet: Made with love, belt: Bershka, necklace: vintage.
Shorts: H&M, T-shirt: H&M, leggings: V&D, vest: vintage, necklace: made it myself.
Shorts: no idea, but they're from America, T-shirt: Hema; print by me, vest: vintage, leggings: V&D.
Dress: We, leggings: de Bijenkorf, necklace with bow: made it myself.
Yesterday I made this necklace:
Actually, the fabric from the bow is from an old handkerchief my friend owned; I liked the flower print very much, so I asked if I could have it. I like bows so much, so I made it into a bow necklace.
The jeans that I wore twice this week are new, I bought them at Only's. I was so happy with them, but fate wasn't with me; before I owned them for three hours, I spilled nacho sauce (quacamole) on them in the cinema... Oww... A huge green mark was spreading over my jeans... I thought I ruined them. But luckily, they came clean out of the washing machine; if you don't know it's there, you hardly can see the mark. The jeans are bleached, but I thought about pimping them a little bit... Maybe by ripping them apart, maybe by tie-dyeing them... Tell me your opinion!
Here's a little denim inspiration:

All pictures are from Lookbook.

Song: The View- Same Jeans
I've had the same jeans on for four days now/I'm gonna go to a disco in the middle of the town/Everybody's dressing up/I'm dressing down.

Chanel fever

I already posted once about this wonderfull fact, but it can't hurt to mention it again: I'm going to Paris! With school, in june. Because I'm in some kind of art class. Today, we had to search for museums or other spots where we absolutely wanted to go to. Well, my friend and I both collect perfume bottles, and she recently bought Chanel N5. She's all obsessing about it. And because of this, she thought of going to the house of Miss Coco in Paris. So we went searching, all over the internet, but we didn't find one thing that assumed that you can visit her house in Paris, or that there's some kind of museum... We were actually really pissed. (So btw, if anyone who reads this is aware that something like this exists in Paris, tell me!)
But what we did find, was quite interesting. It seems that there is a mobile museum, that contains work of artists who are inspired by Chanel bags. So cool! They tour around the world; they went to New York, Hong Kong, London and Moscow. But Paris is their home base. It's a very futuristic building, and if you look at it from above, you'll see that it's shaped like a Chanel bag! I really would like to go to this museum, but I'm not sure if it will be in Paris when I'm there. The entrance is free.
You should defenitely take a look at their website:

I bought a lot of stuff lately. I just love second hand markets! I bought this awesome black/white retro TV, and it's yellow!!
Yellow is my favourite colour.

I also bought an old watch, and I made it into a necklace:

It doesn't work anymore, but I think it looks classic and it goes with almost everything.

I bought a lot of new clothes too. That's why I decided to keep up with a style diary. For a week, I will post my outfit every day, so you guys can get an idea of what is in my closet. I will begin with this post; this is what I was wearing yesterday:
Dress and necklace: vintage, cardigan: Only
The dress is new, and I adore it! It cost only one euro. I think the blue and purple roses are so cute, and it will be perfect for this summer.
I hope I will keep my promise!
