Seems like this week has been about the old pieces revival. You probably wouldn’t believe me but I have had this leather jacket on the pile of things to get rid off for about 2 years, I just never got around to do it. Yesterday as I was getting dressed I started going through this pile looking for something completely different and then I found this. I have to confess, I was never into fringes but I kind of really have a new found love for this jacket. Maybe it was waiting for me all along and maybe I will give it away someday, just not yet.

Two things I have forgotten I had and I feel so silly for neglecting all this time are these incredible boots and this “very unlike me” dress, which I wasn’t very sure at first but then I made it a little shorter and voila! Now I love it…I often get asked to describe my style in one word. Well, the honest answer to that is that I don’t know. I mean, I wear what I like and that goes from gym clothes, to giant tulle skirts, to menswear suits, to extreme flare jeans. I don’t think I could describe my style in one word like they often ask me and I am glad. As long as I keep having fun coming up with new looks of the day for you :) .

BIG NEWS!!! http://stylescrapbook.com/2014/08/big-news.html http://stylescrapbook.com/2014/08/big-news.html#comments Wed, 27 Aug 2014 06:45:11 +0000 http://stylescrapbook.com/?p=26698 STSC5520 STSC5556STSC5531 STSC5547 STSC5539 STSC5612 STSC5529 STSC5542 STSC5636STSC5637jSTSC5637

I feel as if I was talking to my best friend over a cup of coffee, or even an extremely excited phone call in the middle of the day saying: “GUESS WHAT!!!??? I am the new contributor for GLAMOUR magazine in Holland!!!”, and you would tell me how you cant believe the great news and how you feel so happy for me.

See the thing is, there is a very long story behind this and I don’t want to bore you with all the details, yet I do want to share some of it, because I consider you my friend and the fact that you come visit me every day means the world to me, still after all these years…StyleScrapbook will soon turn 7 years old and while that still blows my brains off and makes me feel grateful every single day, I still NEVER forget why this whole thing started and where I come from.

Over 9 years ago I moved to Holland and while I was feeling completely hopeless, I didn’t know anybody, I didn’t speak the language and I couldn’t bare the cold, the lack of sun and the rain, I still had one dream and I knew that I wouldn’t let anything stop me. I didn’t start the blog because I wanted to show myself, I didn’t start the blog to make money or even to become “known”, actually back then, you couldn’t do any of that. I started StyleScrapbook because it was my only hope. I wanted to share something with someone, whether that was 1, 2 or 10 people. I started the blog because I had so much desire and so many dreams to work in an industry that often gets labeled as superficial, yet I saw a different side to it. When I moved to Holland I tried my luck and applied to work on every single fashion magazine I could think of, I knew I had to start from the bottom and I didn’t mind, I work hard and I always try my best and hardest. Everyone said no, maybe not because they didn’t want me, or maybe they didn’t, I mean, I spoke no Dutch so they saw me as a pointless add on to the team. I came home one day and decided to start StyleScrapbook because if I wasn’t going to be given a chance, I will try to give myself that chance and so it began.

I honest to God would have NEVER, ever foresee what happened after, or how blogging all of a sudden became something, how somehow we finally got to have a voice and I am thankful for this turn of events every single day.

Today I can finally announce that starting from the September issue, I will be the newest addition to the GLAMOUR magazine (NL) team as a contributor with my very own page every month. I had to pinch myself a couple of times when this news became a reality because even if I have managed to create such an incredible bond with you guys through StyleScrapbook, I was finally able to close the circle and my dream of writing for a Fashion Magazine finally came true, 7 years later but heck! Who’s counting?

THANK YOU FOR ALL THE SUPPORT. ALWAYS!
