Fashion #OOTD | Little Black Dress.

IMG_3613

Every woman should have a LBD in her closet. This item can be worn at many different occasions. What I like about a black dress it’s timeless, it just never goes out of style. I’m wearing one with long sleeves and a half up turtleneck. I’m lately into the turtlenecks sweaters, tops you name it Loves!

I went for the minimal chic look, so I combined the LBD with my long grey coat that I recently bought. I was looking for a while for a long coat but I doubted it would suit me because of my length; I’m quite a shorty with just 1.63 metre. Since I took the step to buy one, I’m wearing it daily! With this #OOTD I wore it with my high heeled ankle boots. As I told you before Loves, I’m into detailed items and these boots are one of them. That’s the beauty of heels, it makes your legs look longer and with a long coat they seem endless. I brought the grey colour back with my crossover bag. I like the snakeskin pattern on it a lot. It gives the bag an edgy yet a chic look.

Writing about details, I braided my hair in two braids starting on the top of my head until the end of my hair to create the illusion that I have long hair, but in fact it is only a little bit over my shoulder length long. I’m still learning to braid my hair tighter and for the first time it turned out pretty fine. Whenever I put my hair out of my face I wear my ear cuff, it gives a playful look and it is not over the top when you wear it only with small earrings. So I wore it with my DRKS earrings that has been gifted to me in a goodie bag since I attended the event.

The rest of my outfit I left simple, even my makeup. Less is truly more!

What do you think about this OOTD Loves?

Last Sunday I attended the DRKS Bloggers Contest. I got impressed from the moment I walked into the trend show of DRKS until the end.

The hosts gave me and my sister a warm welcome. I imagined myself in a jewellery Walhalla! As I tried the jewellery on, with the help of the cute host, I felt like a princess!

When the trend show started and the models walked on the catwalk too show the beautiful pieces, I did not get bored. So many various items that make the jewellery complete. Freshwater pearls, crystal and many more! Except nickel, you cannot find it in the collection. This makes it unique!

As I get to know more about DRKS, I knew this brand is a success and it will stay a success. The story behind DRKS is a dream came true. Miriam Derksen the designer and founder of DRKS ended her job as a lawyer to go after her dreams. With her 15 years of experience on designing she created her own style.

While trying the jewellery on, I noticed that the jewellery are so light to wear! She thought about this so well, wearing heavy jewellery, especially in your ears can be so annoying. Amazing that she thought about this little detail!

What I love about DRKS is that Miriam has an eye for details and a thoughtful thought towards her production and collections. Not only is the jewellery handmade in the Netherlands, she wanted her creations to be pure and honest! No mass production in low wage countries! How amazing is that?

It was so nice to meet her! She took her time to give answers to me and my sister’s questions. She even gave me advice to talk with other designers for a possible collaboration. Talking about women empowering!
