I love my new bag, I once said I would love to have one of those stupid H&M shopping bags as a school bag, cause those are of course the only items not for sale from the whole store.
I had to have it; yestetrday a friend "scored" it for me.
I mean, does she even need an intro???
A dear friend of mine who I appreciate MUCH MUCH and admire immensely as well but who also feels a little let down by the lack of originality within the blogosphere at the moment.
So this post is not about the many Love Aesthetics' replicas being created by the second, but about MOTIVATION:
To the replicas: GOOD JOB! but it takes more than a prefectly designed layout to acually BE effortlessly cool.
To Ivania: you're QUEEN, that's just a fact. And just like Madonna, hold on to reinvention. Make sure you let all the GaGa's know where they belong; to THE PRINCESS THRONE....
DRESS THEM ALL UP IN YOUR LOVE!!
or well, at least keep on teaching them how to do it.
Dear hhholy blogosphere,
Herewith I release the third "2" ad campaign out of 4!!!!!!!!
The 4th, most juiciest and bombastic ad I'm saving for next week to be released together with the collection's PROMO VIDEO right before the 8th of april, so STAY IN TUNE!
I couldn't be happier to be doing this once again and see people get so excited about it! so if you're reading this and you live in Holland, you need to come on the 8TH OF APRIL to MODE MARCHÉ to the NAI MUSEUM in ROTTERDAM and check out what I've been cooking for this upcoming collection.
All pretty subtly seasoned with tiny 90's bits such as velvet textures, lots of pinstripes, turtle necks, and of course the huge T-shirt family deconstructed till perfection!

Special thanks to HOOP.
55DSL's new communications strategy is all about love!
I love how this feeling is so present in most adverstising campaigns all over at the moment. Youth is somehow being re-drawn into loving each other and everybodyelse around them.
Last year there was a period in which I worried and wondered where were we all going, with young succesful living examples such as Lady GaGa (in between others) talking about: "If you're wondering which way to go, remember that your career will never wake up and tell you that it doesn't love you anymore."
I mean, everyone needs to prioritize what they're after in life, but in the long run, deep down inside, we all want somebody to go to ROME with. So why not wake those teen hormones up once again with David Altobelli's four-minute young and innocent fantasy of what we all dreamt of back in time as the perfect summer love.
There are many roads that lead to Rome. This summer, follow 55DSL's way.
DIRECTOR: David Altobelli
D.O.P: Larkin Seiple
Original Soundtrack: Keith Kenniff
Models: James Cox for "M and P Models" and Sidney Geubelle for Fashion Model

Lately I've been styling lots of shoots and projects for friends at school and I started to feel like I couldn't keep track of them all in my head, so I created a little online platform to keep the red thread at sight.
So hereby the gathering of my favourite collab shoots this far!
This being made, and released, I can also hush hush to you guys around here that my very first website will be online sooner than SOON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I'm really excited to see all my work finally come together and see it all become one whole image.
COLLECTION'S SNEAK PEAK
Actually never had I ever wanted to reveal pictures of anything that was "on the make".
But I thought, since I've been away for so long you guys deserve it!
And besides, I've been finding amazing process pictures from my last collection and I really regret not have shown them to anyone back then.
My favourite boots in the whole world are almost broken and I'm being extremly seduced by minimalistic ways of designing.
The world's trully ending and these are signs.
But I don't mind and all,
as long as there's such genious escapism ways as Born to Die and this street here above.
Which belong to two different people, two out of many facebook friends who captured these moments in completely different countries, contexts, timing....
I love to think of them as the kids whose parents travel too much and live in a french palace. They lay and hang around in this room everyday, whole day, filled with unpacked art works worth zillions. And yes, that would be the view from such room obviously.
The 5th video montage by my sister Lucciana Bolivar. LOV THIS SO MUCH.
This video had me cringing the whole way through the end. Did you feel it? with every fall? and tear? with every half-scared look that always ends with a humble smile?!
There's something about modelling world recorded on video that always makes me want to pick these girls up from the ground, hold them and hug them.
A world and a lifestyle that a lot look down on, but that me personally have a lot of RESPECT for.
It's not about pointing out CRUELTY, it's about admiring what they do.
So this one's for every single beautiful and hard working model-girl I know and ever met!!!!!!!
FOR YOUR LIFE AND DAY'S SAKE!
Do yourself a favor and go to the BLEND blog and watch this video! listen to the lyrics, dance, enjoy, feel crushed on life! share it! and get everyone contaiged!!!!!
To be honest, I love t-shirts when they're either really tight OR extremly huge.
But I somehow have an issue with the M sized, mostly if they're printed, cause I always feel like they're the in betweens, and always missing something.
Same goes for Jersey sweaters, which I adoooooooore at all times, but I always end up or cutting off the gathered bottom edges or the sleeves for a cooler thick jersey t-shirt feeling.
ANYHORE, this is pretty much what happened to this gorge black & white dolphin print tee (gift from bf) a couple of hours ago. I have tons of those cut off jersey sweater sleeves as left overs and as I wanted to wear the t-shirt, I just sowed them both together.
Now you can wear just a t-shirt and still not be cold. Just make sure when you cut off slevees from anything to have a good length cause otherwise your TEE SWEATER will have too short sleeves just like mine. BUT I GOT IT LIKE DAT.
HOW U LIKE MY BLING???
