Remember my post about trademarks? Everyone has their own trademarks, even when you’re not aware of them. Your trademarks are not only limited to appearance. How you behave, how you think…personality is key. However, today I am talking about personal trademarks in appearance. One of my own appearance trademarks to me more specific. Oriental Spice Red Lips and some Chocolate Hairflowers pretty much sums it up. I will not talk about the red lip(stick) today, maybe another time. I do want to talk to you about flowers. I wear them a lot and in every season. Read more

When you are a woman and you are looking at lovely fashion looks, you want to own them all. And fast. So in this hi-tech society, I still feel like there is something missing. Something which I would like to call instant-display-post. Meaning you click (or swipe), you pay and then it magically appears in your house three seconds later. I will keep dreaming about this invention. However, I do appreciate the nowadays webshop era. Because some years ago there were not as many webshops as today. In fact, online shopping was not even that popular. Can you imagine? Today it’s an important part of lifestyle. Especially when you’re looking for unique (fashion) items.

If you follow this blog (and my facebook community) closely, you will not be surprised when I say that I adore the vintage feminine look. Dots, high waisted tight pencil skirts and feminine bodyhugging dresses are always for keeps. I believe that the best retro inspired fashion can not be found in the standard popular webshops. So instead of Zalando or H&M, online retro boutiques are saved in my favorites. Obviously I’m always interested in exploring new vintage and retro webshops, next to the ones that I already know. Recently I discovered a new webshop with a lot of beautiful vintage inspired fashion: The Empire Elegance shop. The best thing about it: I haven’t seen the fashion items from this shop anywhere else. So once again, I have a good excuse to buy some unique and affordable new vintage fashion…Now, you should now that a vintage webshop is not just a shop. Behind every vintage webshop, there is an interesting story and I like to share the story behind Empire Elegance with you.
