Vienna


Hello! First of all a happy new year! 2014 was a really good year for me and I hope it was also for you and if not I hope 2015 will be better. I spent Christmas in Vienna with my family and I had such a good time, Vienna is an amazing city! Although I couldn't be bothered to actually use my digital camera I did snap some pictures on my Olympus. They still need to be developed but I thought I would already share the ones I took with my phone so sorry for the quality! They are basically just photo's of my back (???) and animals but oh well.

Above: tropical garden at Schönbrunn (The Vienna Zoo), me on our hotel balcony, lunch at the Leopold Collection and writing Klimt postcards!

Finally seeing a Schiele painting in real life!, jellyfishes at the zoo, my morning coffee

Me mixing with the Leopold Collection floor, flamingos at the zoo, leaving for Vienna.

Flo at the zoo, the view from our room, new shoes and cool light.

Me just casually starring in the distance thinking about some deep stuff (nah probably just thinking how I might get my morning coffee faster), Schiele everywhere, pretty buildings.


I also managed to snap one of the outfits I wore in Vienna (without coat because it's so cold in that city and the wind is crazy) and I have no idea what happened to the photo because the quality sucks sorry I am trying to figure out what the problem is and I might get a new lens with my Christmas money as well so I hope that will increase the quality of my photos! I am wearing a Brandy Melville necklace, c/o Oasap striped crop top, vintage Tommy Hilfigger dungaree dress, random black tights and c/o Fred De La Bretoniere chelsea boots.


Love,
Ibe

october favorites


Hello! Today I am back with a favorites post. So yeah let's get ahead. The time is high.

1. Monki scarf (sold out): I got this scarf in the beginning of October and I've worn it on almost every cold day this month. The weather has been so weird here, one day it's all Indian summer and before you know it, it's raining and storming (the wind actually blew me from my bike this week). But I absolutely love it on that scarf on rainy days, big and warm and just look at that print!

2. "Vele hemels boven de zevende" by Griet Op De Beeck: I am so late with this book! I've been wanting to read this book forever but in some weird way our copy got lost but then I had to read it for school so I finally did! And it is good. Like crying out loud good. It's in Dutch but you would gladly learn the language for this book believe me.

3. Olympus OM-10 film camera: This is actually Ophelia's camera but she is letting me have it for a while (she has another Canon). I am so excited to get my film developed it feels like getting my first disposable pictures done all over again. Also look at all the beautiful photo's Ophelia took with it on her flickr page

How pretty is this one right? Probably has more to do with Opi's photo skills than the camera but oh well.

4. Vinyl: This half term I got really into vinyl again! I bought so many bargain records the last week (Françoise Hardy, Peace, Fleetwood Mac, The Rolling Stones, The Beatles, Heart, The Smiths, The Animals, The Byrds, The Smiths all for the total of 30 euros). And I've been listening especially a lot to the records on the picture. I wrote about Peace before here and if you think that you know Françoise Hardy from somewhere, you are totally right (if you are a crazy big Wes Anderson fan as well yay!). It's the record that Sam and Suzy dance to in Moonrise Kingdom!


5. Thrifted backpack: I actually bought this on the 31st but I am still including it (technically still October right). Look how cute this is! Only 4 euros and backpacks are so practical, seriously how could I not buy this

6. & Other Stories fig fiction body spray: This thing actually smells so good! I can't even express how good this is. I've been wearing this about every day (the people around me can confirm). Ugh & Other Stories beauty collection is going to be my end one day.

7. American Apparel Matte + &Other Stories green nailpolish: I absolutely love matte nails and moss green is my go to autumn colour (ah just listen to this rant on autumn colours and nailpolish.. almost like a real blogger wow) so that's why these two are included in here.

8. Dreame drawing: Yes there is another favorite! Dreame is a website which allows you to turn your dream into art. With more than 30 artists you are guaranteed to get a piece of artwork which completely suits your dream. The lovely Dreame team let me try out their website as well. Cheng Chen drew me and I am absolutely in love with it. You should totally check out the website and I mean this would be a pretty rad Christmas gift right?


9. My sisters outfits: This is probably a really nifty favorite but Flo has been wearing some really cool things and Oasap send me some really nice stuff again but sadly it doesn't fit me that well so she gladly took them over from me. So I thought I would post two of Flo's outfits (where she is wearing the Oasap clothes) here! Such a supportive sister wow.



Raincoat - Petit Bateau, crop top - c/o Oasap (mine), mom jeans - Topshop, Shoes - Dr Martens

Jeans jacket - vintage (yes that's the one that I used to wear all the time!), shirt - c/o Oasap, black jeans - Dr Denim, shoes - Dr Martens.

That's it for today!
Love,
Ibe
