Ice

A DREAM COME TRUE. I can’t even tell you for how long I’ve been lusting over platinum blonde hair. I’ve always liked to experiment with different cuts and colours. And yes, of course I also went through a troubled teenage phase where all I wanted was a head of dreadlocks. You can imagine that my mom was less than thrilled.

SEQUINS AND FLUFF. Lately I’ve been having fun experimenting with textures and materials. This look, which I’ve worn on Sunday for an afternoon stroll in Holland Park, is defined by a mixture of sequins, leather, and fluffy fabric. Speaking of having fun… the same goes for my make up routine, which I try to extend by using bright lipsticks to add the extra oomph to a look. This almost baby pink lipstick YSL Rouge Volupté 7 gives a wonderful contrast to the otherwise all black outfit – without looking too much like Barbie.
