Why I am actually writing this blog (Jiwa)


This week I want to talk about how inspiration is leading to my own style. How is something like a picture in the ELLE magazine leading to an explosion of ideas and letting my head be crazy with happiness?(I like to express it with these words)

When I am on my, I call them, 'inspiration sources' (instagram, tumblr, youtube, blogs, lookbook magazines, the street/world(oh wauw that's a lot)), I am, without being aware of it, looking for patterns in what I like, what I think is amazing beautiful and what I wanna take it into my own style. I'm gonna give you an example. A week ago I saw this picture on instagram:

How long would you look at these picture? Well, I don't know about you, but these pictures are giving me life. I can look at them for hours, and I have that same feeling like, all the time(with different pictures).  And why is this? Why am I so fascinated? (this girl is amazeballs by the way, her blog is http://iamcharlottemartin.com)
It's not that I wanna be her. It's not that I wanna copy that girl. I just want to take the inspiration from this picture, and create. You know, in the past I would only look at pictures like this, enjoy it, and then I would just do nothing with it. But my vision is changed. I also wanna create. I wanna create something, where I can give people an idea of where I am thinking about(fashion/beauty/lifestyle wise) and I wanna give people the same feeling as what I am feeling with it. Because I know that I'm not the only one who gets life from these kind of pictures. (Am I right?)

Well, it came out to be the reason why I am writing this blog. That's funny :) I will go on with my example, the picture.

I love it, because of the colors, the casualness and the wide clothes. Firstly, I adore the dark red lip color, together with pale pink, or shades of white, or just shades of light colors. Secondly, the fact that she combines chique pants with sneakers and a baseballjacket, it's just, it's nice that you can combine the weirdest things with each other. And I like the combination of casual with chique, or girly with urban, that combination is just great.
At last is the baggyness. It is actually almost the same as the casualness, because the baggyness is giving the casual look. You can move so freely and flowy and I also think it is giving a more mature look, I think the effect is that she looks like she is confident about herself. If you can take off baggy clothes, you have to be confident!

What I am going to do now, is looking for this three things(a pattern) in more pictures and I will think about how I can create something with this pattern changing it into my style.
(for example this one)

Great, it was nice to clear my head like this and writing it down. If you're reading this:thanks for the interest. You definitely will find your patterns in inspiration.

It came out to be a really different post, but I hope you enjoyed.

FOOTM: Gramercy Park Plum (Jiwa)

So, hi!

I wanna introduce y'all with a monthly topic: FOOTM aka favorite outfit of the month. We do have some clothes we wear to death (hasn't everybody got that?) and it changes now and then, so we thought this was a good idea.

This weekend we made outfit pictures of each other and it went really well. I'm happy with the results :) This outfit is clearly my favorite outfit of the month! I love the color of the top and the fit of the jeans so damn much.

I don't know what it is, but I keep coming back to these jeans this month. Wearing it to death!

It was our intention to film in the evening. Making pictures with camera flash gives a special effect, which I like. It's in our living room, so it is not that orderly, but I like that too. I would wear this when I go out (with the little furry bag), but as well to school, with a cozy cardigan and another bag.

(this is not via a filter of app or something, just my sisters camera skills ;)  u go sis. )

Top - Monki
Mom Jeans - Episode
Fila Shoes - very very old from my mom
Bag - Monki
Accesoires: choker from claires, rings from New Look and H&M
Lip Crayon - NYC 031 Gramercy Park Plum

I hope you like this topic.
Next week my sisters fav outfit! (or maybe sooner)

velvet dresses or nah (Jiwa)

(Source: stylenanda )

Hey y'all,

Is it just me or do y'all also like the ambiance of the winter? Well, I really don't like the cold, but I definitely like the candles, the warm drinks and the party's of course! And it's always a challenge what to wear to these events, whether it is Christmas, New Years Eve or a Gala Night. These parties are coming soon, so this week I was searching on the web for a Gala-night dress, one not too expensive.

But, what a choice, there are SO many dresses. SO many nice ones. I haven't chosen yet, but I want to share with you the dresses I'm going to choose from. Just for inspiration!

Oh and one tip for you guys. A lot of online shops are having sale RN(because of black friday and cyber monday)! Me likey.

First some Party dresses from Missguided:

I love this velvet material. What do you prefer, red or green?
This one is kinda sexy. Nice for a gala night.
Or maybe I am going for this peach lace one (but I would accessorize it different though):


And now Boohoo.com:

damn. What a pity that they only have one in a bigger size left.

I hope you got some inspiration. If I buy one of these, I'm going to show you it for sure!

lil' 90's OOTD (Jiwa)


When in Amsterdam, I always go to the episode. Amsterdam also has the Kalverstraat(where the most of the people go to shop), but the episode has something more special. The people that go there are so inspirational, they have that vintage style. It's not that cheap though, weirdly because you would guess that when you hear it's a second-hand-shop.

Well, I was there last week, and I bought 2 pieces. Want to know how I styled them? My sister made some pictures of my OOTD.

Grey Loose Shirt - H&M
Blouse with Paisley print - Episode
Mom Jeans - Episode
Sneakers - FILA
Rings - H&M and New Look

Those shoes are so old! But I like that 90's vibe with the shoes and the pants. I wanted those kind of pants in like years. I like that the blouse gives the outfit some more color and brightness. The accessories (got the bracelets for my birthday), makes it more fancier ;)

What do you think of my outfit? Are you into the 90's trend?

A to the msterdam

Heyy heyyy,
Guess what, I'm finally 18! Last week(the 8th of November) was my birthday. On that same day a lot of open days from schools I possibly wanna go next year took place all over the country. I'm really interested in art, design, styling and also in fashion. So I choose for AMFI, Amsterdam Fashion Institute. I went with Anaïs and a friend of me from my class. And it was really useful and inspiring! I took some pictures in AMFI and in Amsterdam. Let's see......


The graduate students had made such beautiful pieces.


It was really inspiring to peek at all the dummy's of the students.


There library

We went into the city Amsterdam.

The Hype was a really cute and cozy shop, this shop is situated in the '9 straatjes' (9 streets). 

I made this when I was in Monki, there changingrooms are the best.

I celebrated my birthday also in the evening with friends and family. My day was so so great!

adulty Jiwa ;)

Wait for the next post till Sunday!
