Structured Leather

The day after christmas always feels a bit strange, as if the christmas-magic is gone and you'll have to wait a whole year for it to come back again! One of my girlfriends came over and we decided to go out for a nice winterwalk and some hot coco afterwards, so nice..!!

Since the sales are going on, well everywhere, we couldn't resist and went for a little shopping. Like many times when I go sale-shopping, I come home with something from the new collection and this time was no exception ;)  This jacket had just came in and I absolutely fell in love with it the moment I touched it! Even though it's not real leather, it feels so buttery and soft and the structured panels are just amazing..!! As you can guess and see, it came home with me :)

Jacket - Vero Moda Jeans / Dress - H&M (old) / Tights - Henry Holland / Shoes - Asos

Dressing for Christmas

Christmas Day

Strapless dress + Satin blazer - H&M
Wedges - Asos
Earrings - Six

Boxing Day
 Yes we have a fireplace dvd, please don't judge ;)

Camel dress + Leopard shoes - Zara
Necklace - H&M x Lanvin

With the holidays I always try to do something different with my hair. The first day I went for a simple updo, a messy bun on the left-side 'cause I knew I wanted to wear these earrings and they just don't look as good with 'normal' loose hair ;)  And for the second day I went for curls which I always love!! I think when you're born with super straight hair like me you want to have curls and vice versa. If I had the time I would do it more often, maybe I should just make time for it, hmmh.. it's an idea ;)

Will show you tomorrow what I got for christmas, haven't uploaded the pictures yet so I'll do that tomorrow.

Love, Daphne

Sunday Select

  • Power shortage in the beginning of this week and I'm lighting EVERY candle I can find in the house!
  • Turned out to be some snow in the extention cord from the outside christmas lights so the bf fixed it as soon as he came home ;) hihi..
  • We've had lots and lots of snow and foggy weather this week which gives such a magical feeling when you go outside I think.
  • Went to the Serious Request glass-house in Eindhoven with friends to support the radio dj's who stay inside the house for 6 days without eating to raise money for a good cause.
  • Actually got to give money to my favourite dj Gerard Ekdom even though I didn't think we could get through the crowd, it was soooo packed with people there! But then again that was kinda nice 'cause you didn't feel the cold as much :P
  • Christmas arrived and was lots of fun!
  • Lots of presents under the tree all still wrapped up wondering which ones are mine ;)
  • Made some nice warm cinnamon twists..!!
  • And of course unwrapping aaall the beautiful presents with my family!
I really enjoyed this christmas! It was so nice spending it with family, having amazing dinners, laughing and today unwrapping presents. I will show you what I got real soon!

How did you spend your christmas?

Gold, golden, goldest..

I knew I wanted something festive on my nails for the upcoming holidays. Which means it has to be shimmery or glittery and preferably both! While I started my quest for the perfect holiday-polish, these where the ones that I really liked and was planning to go out and buy. (well, at least one of them ;).

But when I took a small look in my nail polish box, I found my gold glitter polish from last year that I bought at Hema (dutch department store) and wondered if it was still any good. I wasn't too happy with it the first 3 layers, but after 8 (!) layers it totally gives me that sparkly holiday look I was going for!!

1. W.I.C. 126 Florence
2. OPI Sparkle-icious
3. W.I.C. 127 Salamanca
4. OPI Bring on the bling

Do you also get cravings for all things sparkly as the holidays are coming closer?

Sale out of reach..

O MY GOD! There is a sale going on at mywardrobe.com and I came across this Vivienne Westwood Anglomania Animal Puffer Jacket and  I . Love . It  <3   I'm not sure if it's unfortunately or 'thank god' but even though it used to be €600,- and is now down to €300,- it is still way too much money for me to be spending right now so I will just dream about it and make mental outfits with this amazing looking jacket!
