As you may have seen there’s “Blazers in every color possible” on the wishlist on top of my blog and I think I’m slowly getting there. I can’t really describe the color of this one (peach, orange, rusty?) from Queens Wardrobe, but I think it’s genius. This blazer became my new addiction immediately after unwrapping it from it’s Fedex package this morning.
I spent my sunday paying a visit to Bastiaans Bazar, which is kind of a sample sale. There were lots of Dutch brands and some Dutch designers. I had planned on not buying anything and even though I saw a couple of super nice items, I kept my promise.
ps; The sunnies were a joke ofcourse.
