HAPPY JUNO





#Juno2015: Trending topic on the internet and “Better safe than sorry” seems to be the bottom line but here’s how it really went on Monday night. I love to tie up an outfit story to actual facts - yawn.

Monday evening, January 26th. 11.55 pm. Manhattan is a ghost town.

Hours earlier Wholefoods turned into WholeZoo. The line at Trader Joes was possibly even worse with people standing in line outside which made me feel like I should have been more worried about starving than I actually was about the snow. 

My WORST fears realized when I get to my own local grocery store down the building: no more Doritos on the shelves. I'd rather wake up without electricity. I hate you all! Kudos to the girl in front of me who checks out a large box of condoms and a double six pack of beers.

I stayed up till 2 am and still nothing. I was already out of Pringles by 11.30 pm. There was even a “traffic ban” after 11 pm. Delivery bikes were not considered as emergency vehicles so my sushi / pizza neighbor couldn't order his usual take out.

Instagram and twitter were collapsing and it was hard to tell if it was snowing outside or not with so many statuses. I made a short instagram movie during the day that made it to both the New York Times online and was the opening video on their instagram, jay!

The blizzard never came but gave us all New Yorkers the opportunity to bundle up and work from home the next day. Thanks #Juno2015

MY NAME IS EEF


If I had a dollar for every time someone spelled my name wrong, I really wouldn't need a job. 

When two vowels go walking, the first one does the talking, except that two equal vowels keep on creating confusion. My name is Eef,  as in Adam & Eve or as in Beef without B.

A POP OF PASTEL AND A PINCH OF PINK






Easter eggs, princess’ bedrooms, my little pony, 1980s interiors a la Miami Art Deco district … and everywhere in fashion. A total pastel look is fun, but be prepared to be blatantly stared at. Mostly from kids who just stare and point, that always makes me happy. 

Dolce Vicca is using the Samsung NX 2000 camera and a Swatchwatch. Sweater, skirt, blazer and jacket bought here and there last Winter, not available any longer :-)

HELLO 2015


Slowly but surely accepting that this is yet again a new year. Channeling my new inner me.

PRETTY WOMAN WANNABE






That moment you decide to throw on some “Pretty Woman over the knee boots” and you realize that only Julia Roberts in her late twenties looked good in them. This picture includes velvet shorts as well as an ugly Xmas cardigan and retro bow blouse, all masked in black and white to make it look like, well, more decent and vintage.

NYC DRUG


Damn, this happened! Normally it’s me taking a bite out of the big apple, but this week NYC has eaten me. Two more days to go Vicca, two more days!

WEST VILLAGE LOVE








“You are going to eat this e-mail with ketchup. 18 months from now you are going to beg, cry and pray to live in Brooklyn and get out of Manhattan. 18 months. Mark my words” are the words of one of my most clever, savvy and intelligent friends I have in the whole wide world. There’s not one trend or political debate he doesn’t know about, but I have to differ on this one. 18 months have largely gone by, I’m still paying way too much rent for a 55 square meter apartment, but I don’t see myself living anywhere else than in the villages of Manhattan.


Never say never though. Things in my third year living here might be fun, but not as entertaining, and reality might begin to set in even more, getting a wake up call that I still can't afford my rent. 

Until then, I will keep on enjoying my strolls through Perry and Christopher streets, my weekly dinners at Rosemary’s, The Meatball Shop or Extra Virgen and afterwork drinks at Highlands.
