Hi guys! Today I am showing you this ensemble that I wore on my busy Sunday in Utrecht. You would think that after living there for 5 years I could have known that wearing high heels in this city is not the greatest idea. The bricks of the streets are uneven with a lot of holes, so you can imagine how I struggled not to fall with every step! But I survived! The outfit is not complete without the heels right?!

I am such a dreamer, especially when I am browsing through webshops like Net-A-Porter, finding myself falling in love with pieces that are waaaay out of my league. Can you relate to this? Well.. Happily for us, there are brands out there which are doing a pretty good job replicating these expensive pieces in a way that it is still gorgeous and yet affordable! You just need to know where! So, today I am going to introduce to you this new concept for Hashtag by Lily: The fashion piece translator.
Every Tuesday I will translate a few expensive fashion pieces to affordable high street pieces. I have done this before, comparing Saint Laurent with Mango or Acne with Zara. I hope you will like this as much as I do! Oh and if you have any great suggestions for me to find, you can always drop a message and I will see what I can do for you ;) I love this challenge!! For now, enjoy!!
Hello lovely readers! Rise and shine! I hope you had a wonderful weekend. I spent my weekend mostly in my former hometown Utrecht. Gosh I have been missing this city, especially when the sun is that bright like yesterday! Nigel and I were asked to be the ushers for our good friends wedding and of course our answer was YES. We visited the wedding locations and discussed about their wishes for this day. I already knew that a wedding is a LOT of work, but I think we are even underestimating the unexpected. I guess we will see. So far no bridezilla signs *lol. Continue reading
TGIF! Not so much for me though, because that is where work starts for me. On Fridays and Saturdays you can find me in Eindhoven helping out my parents . This Saturday evening and Sunday is reserved for some quality time with some good friends, helping them plan a wedding (me and my bf are the ushers). In between all this, I will meet Wendy (from Fabulous Style WS) for a bit to shoot some pics for our blogs. Busy bee this weekend, spending a lot time in my former home sweet home: Utrecht!
I think I’ve got the hang of it, once I figured out how easy it was to edit my own videos in iMovie. I really enjoyed making the shoplog video (this video will be live on shoplog.nl tomorrow), so I am planning to make more videos if you would like this :) I made this one for 15 secs, so it also fits Instagram. It’s only a glimpse of my outfit, to promote my blog posts. What do you think?????????? Continue reading
Since we have booked our tickets to Playa del Carmen, I am (pre)selecting clothes from the spring/summer ’14 collection already. Oh, if you have any great recommendations for must sees, do’s, food etc. please let me know!! I will be forever grateful :) I can totally see myself laying in the sun, sipping on some cocktails under a palm tree while enjoying the peaceful sound of the sea. Soaking in some vitamin sun (D) is what I need. Seriously, check out how pale I look in the pictures, I am vampire Lily! But I cannot say that the sun isn’t shining over here, last Sunday was a wonderful day for a shooting as you can see.
Like I said before, we often shoot outfits on the go. For today’s post it is no different. Every week I stand on this platform at Amsterdam Zuid to take my train to Eindhoven. Most of the time I am running late, but occasionally I have some time left to buy some magazines and coffee/chai tea for the 1 hour and 20 minutes trip. Continue reading
