YESSSS, finaly it's JULY. For most of us this means holiday! Long days on the beach, cold drinks at cafes and having the time of your life during the night outs. This time we styled a look that you can wear for a day at the beach. I really love this babyblue color. It softens your look immediately, whatever you're skintone is. You will rock this color!

Lookoftheweek blue

The bikini is of Hennes & Mauritz and if you ask me it's not only for this year. It is a classic triangle bikini model with decorative flounces. The beads on the strings make it playful. The dress with button closure falls below the knee and has a smooth heat-resistant fabric and style. Supposedly a classic summer dress. In terms of accessories I combined this blue look with beige/brown tones that nicely matchwith each other. I love the blue towel of Sissyboy; it reminds me of the old Dutch style. That's all you need for a day out at the beach!

On Sunday the 28th of July David Paulus presented his latest collection: 'Pop art.' Tuğba and I were hired to help backstage with the styling of the models. A perfect job for the team of I AM Mode! imageimageI was sold at the first glance at the Pop Art collection. The collection has David Pulus signature style, but is also very new. Colorful, fun and very fashionable. The Pop Art collection consists of 15 outfits divided in 3 theme's: Marie Antoinette, Grace Jones and Cartoon. The models were in hair and make up by FaceFacts Visagie to get their Pop Art transformation.imageimageTuğba and I were busy with the fitting when David said he was missing a model. And that was how I became a model for the Pop Art presentation. It was a very busy day, but totally worth it. David Paulus is a talented designer with a great attitude. If only more people in the fashion world were like that!  image

On June 28th it was finally time for the fashion presentation of the latest collection of David Paulus, named ´Pop Art´! The collection consists of three different looks: Grace Jones, Marie Antoinette and Cartoon. All models walked one by one to their own corner in the room of Loods 6 which was transformed into a fashion palace last Sunday. It´s very smart of David to present his collection like this. Now each person had enough time to see all 15 pieces very well, while taking pictures and filming.

Each part had five gorgeous looks. The Grace Jones looks were colorful, sexy and at very stylish. The models had high Grace Jones coupes and striking colorful makeup.Grace Jones DulceDuring the presentation Dulce was one of the beautiful Grace Jones models.  Grace Jones looks

We are obsessed with these 80´s inspired sexy looks!20150628_171825The Cartoon looks are our favorite! David Paulus has used very cute prints that remind us  of  Southpark. And the matching sunglasses are a musthave accessory. This style was also presented by one plus size model. It's nice to see that David has used different body types for presenting the collecton.CartoonAll of the 5 Cartoon models wear gladiator sandals and the brightly colored lips completes the look.Cartoon1The Marie Antoinette was also very nice to see. With lots of big hair and super high platform shoes this was definately the most nostalgic look.Marie AntoinetteEven though the three looks were very different from each other, you could clearly see a consistent and complete collection. A collection where art, history, fashion and creativity comes together. And a collection that you will not easily forget. With the Pop Art Collection David Paulus once again shows that he is more than a professional fashion designer. Chapeau!

Quote 13 juli

The other day I was in one of my favorite cities, Amsterdam. I had a date with a friend. It's summer in Holland, but it feels like fall sometimes. Always the same here; you never know what to wear! But hey, I wouldn't be a real fashionista if I couldn't figure it out, no ;) ?I chose my (almost) all black outfit with my new fabulous key accessories by L'Eternel.

I immediately fell in love with the color of this bag. It just oozes luxury. Another cool thing; with every bag comes a matching piece of jewelry. With this bag, I got the earrings and big ring. Processed with VSCOcam with se3 preset

I combined it with my one of alltime my favorite purchases, the faux leather pants. And with my two new additions: the mesh top is from Ready to Fish by Ilya and the coat from WE Fashion. I love wearing this faux fur coat during this changeable weather because it's always warm, even with such a thin top. I love styling designer pieces with high street items. What do you think of this outfit?

Ever heard of the make up brand Ellis Faas? I wasn't familiair with this brand untill I saw the lipstick during a fashion event last year. A makeup artist showed me the creamy liptick of Ellis Faas and put it on my lips. When I heard the price (€ 27), I was a bit reticent. But honestly; This is the nude lipstick that is perfect for your lips! A long-lasting lipstick that creates a natural look.

Ellis Faas lips

I'm wearing the Creamy Lips L107 . If you want natural looking  lips and have a medium skin tone, this is perfect for you. Women who have a medium to a slightly dark skin can create a nude look with this lipstick. It's longlasting so luckily I don't need to update my lips every half hour. The Creamy Lips also has a glossy finish and a moisturizing effect for your lips. My lips don't feel dry after a while. There are no lumps on my lips -  not even after 3 hours!Ellis Faas lips2

Good to know; the Creamy Lipstick has no smell, no taste, no parabens and is not tested on animals. All lipsticks of Ellis Faas contain vitamin E. The creamy lip collection consists of 9 different colors. All worth to test  out and discover what 's your Ellis Faas color.Ellis Faas lips1

I'm done with cheap ass makeup which doesn't last long. I'm truly a fan of Ellis Faas and recommend this brand for every woman who wants perfect lips in a few seconds. Interested in getting an Ellis Faas lipstick? Click HERE to purchase one!

A while ago we went to the  Specsavers Love Glasses event, and this day was one of the first real Summer days. FINALLY! It was also the first time I got to wear my hotpants again. With this hot weather, I don't want to wear too much without looking too 'naked'. A super simple solution and a huge trend this summer and next season: the long vest!  image image

The vest gives this simple outfit an instant dressed look. Basically my outfit consists of only a tanktop and shorts. But the vest adds an instant fabulousness to the look!image

I didn't go too crazy with the accessories. I'm really happy with my latest addition, the Ysecream rosé starfish necklace. And my second baby: My Lanvin bag! This bag is one of my favorite bags because I can bring a lot with me( like extra flats or a coat) and just because it's gorgeous! image

Later I went 'non shopping' with Tugba and added this hat to my outfit. What do you giys think of this look? PicsArt_1434665558565

When we get an invitation for a (fashion) event, I always think carefully what to wear. Gladly I don't have to think hours about it, since I can usually style an outfit quite easily. A few weeks back we were invited to the Specsavers Love Glasses event.


First of all I wanted to wear this vest for this event. So I styled the rest of the items that matches the black vest. Five and a half months ago I gave birth to my second son, you can understand why I'm a big fan of this model :) It coveres my redundancies and on the other hand it is a classy item to have! I did not add much color to my outfit. I chose a blue and black skinny jeans with a simple black top.

Gilet shoes

The open shoes with high heels can be very painfull after a few hours, but I love these shoes sooo much! In addition, I chose a side bag with a small jewel detail on it. I do not wear very often black, but if I have to, I do not combine it with lots of jewelry. Black is a strong color and therefore I opted for an elegant chain of YSECREAM and gold rings of H&M..

Another style of shoes can really make the difference for an outfit. This week we've created two different styles with a couple of key items. The chic version for a night out and the casual version for a lunch meeting with your friends.Look of the week

With this jeans skirt and the basic white top you are quite ready for any occasion. The flirty skirt has pockets on the sides and falls smoothly. Because of the natural colors that these two items have it's easy to combine them with colored accessories and also with calm toned items. The open toed black sandals and small side bag make the skirt and top look chic. Gold and black colored jewelry will match perfectly with this look.

For a fun afternoon out, you can opt for the 2nd style. This is slightly more casual with the open toed espadrilles and the trendy shopper. Use a tiny bit of pink blush on your cheeks - note; not too much. The round sunglasses is one of my favorite items at the moment. You can wear this style with different kinds of jewelry. I chose for the watch, it's sleek but casual.

Which one is your favorite look?
