THE COLORS AND SHAPES OF AGATHA RUIZ DE LA PRADA

Welcome to the world of Spanish brand Agatha Ruiz de la Prada, where “boring” surely doesn’t exist. While I wouldn’t go as far as wearing the sunglasses and shoes below, I have a thing about its home collection. The attractive, unusual designs have loads of character. Especially the bathroom furnishings – I’m smitten with them!

MOHEKANN CLUTCH: TWO LOOKS

I think my heart stopped beating when I saw this beautiful Mohekann clutch on the Zalando online shop. It comes in two colors and here I show you two looks using both bags. Zalando, by the way, has been my favorite online store ever since we moved to Europe. I had been a loyal customer since our days in the Netherlands because the store carries amazing brands. And don’t get me started on its free delivery and free return shipping services… Anyway, when we moved to Spain, I had to curb my spending due to the economic situation here. That’s the sad thing. The good thing is: it doesn’t cost me a single cent to browse its online shop whenever I want. What a huge collection it has! In fact, 80 to 90 percent of the items in my outfit collages are Zalando finds. As they say on the Dutch TV ad (which I still know by heart!): ‘Zalando, de online schoenenwinkel met een enorm assortiment!’ (Can’t believe I actually wrote that down!)

HOLIDAYS IN MONOCHROME

It’s only a month away before summer officially starts. I bet that at this point, many of you are already making vacation plans. I bet, too, that 50 percent of those plans comprises holiday outfits. Summer is obviously the time to wear colors, whether in soft neutral palettes or in crazy, unexpected combinations. Now here’s something fun. How about ditching that color wheel on your desk and going monochromatic? Not in black, white or nude. But in green, purple or yellow. Game?
