HOW TO SCORE A DESIGNER BAG FOR LESS

It’s no secret I have a sweet-tooth for a good designer bag and my wish list always looks like a never ending story. But for many of us, spending the equivalent of a month’s rent on a bag remains a serious investment and of course, the bags we love the most, hardly go on sale.

Still, there are ways to save a bit of cash on our major designer bag purchases!

Of course we can use some tricks to save up a little percentage on the full price of the designer bag we fall in love with. Tricks like shopping on sites that are based in Europe to save import and tax duties or considering an unusual colour which most probably will be part of some seasonal sales.

Instead, what I find the most effective, is buying from an authentic second hand source, like I did for this Balenciaga Bazar on Rebelle.

I’ve really enjoyed shopping on Rebelle, the site is very neat, it’s easy to shop, full on useful information and most important, it immediately gave me the idea I was going to spend my money on a safe website! I’ve surfed the site a lot before deciding on this Balenciaga (even if it was already on my top 3!), just out curiosity!;)

On Rebelle you can save major money! more than 70% sometimes, if you’re willing to invest in a pre-owned bag. What’s best than shopping on a website that offers all the designer brands you can think of, for guaranteed authentic purses that are in great conditions? I already have my eyes on a vintage Dior I also found on Rebelle! So, as you can see, the wish list is really never ending!! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Finally, Rebelle is committed with a great cause which is helping girls in developing countries! You can help by donating your preloved designer pieces but also by shopping this very cool ‘Rebelle with a cause’ t-shirt and spreading the word on social media by using the #rebellewithacause.

TWO WINTER WARDROBES ESSENTIALS YOU MUST HAVE

Every season has its must-have wardrobe items, and in winter, it’s all about being warm while remaining stylish. Let’s say, hypothetically, that you need only two winter wardrobes essentials in your closet this winter, or at least, they would be a great start to build the perfect wardrobe for the cold days.. do you know what would you pick?

My two winter wardrobes essentials this season are, without a shadow of a doubt, the ones I am wearing today: wool herringbone coat and a light colour oversized jumper, both from Opus.

Let me tell you why! Classic, timeless, smart buy. These two are the definite items that are outlasting the seasonal trends!

  winter wardrobes essentials - nickyinsideout   winter wardrobes essentials - nickyinsideout   winter wardrobes essentials - nickyinsideout   winter wardrobes essentials - nickyinsideout  

I think the best is compiling a seasonal collection of essential items that effortlessly synchronise with your year-round go-to-pieces. Both to invest in a wardrobe update and to give you layering options for the cold temperatures which are coming soon.

Nothing says off-duty chic like a good quality crew neck sweater, like this one I am wearing from Opus. This chic layering piece can be as easy to dress up as it is to dress down. This sweater looks great worn on its own or with a collared white shirt and goes with everything including jeans, skirts, structured trousers and leather pants!

In winter your outwear is the most important aspect of your wardrobe. To me, the herringbone detail remains the most chic of all. There’s something about the print that is so quintessentially british and I love the fact that there’s always a masculine side in it.

With these two items your winter-style can’t go wrong. And the cool thing is, trust me on this, you’ll wear these next year as well.. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Yellow is one of the biggest trends of the Fall and the mustard yellow in particular is my very favourite!

But first, a little personal life update..

nickyinsideout - shopping - trend report - yellow - yellow sweater  

Today is going to be my last day at the office for at least a week to concentrate on our big move! I can’t believe it’s finally happening.. and I can’t even imagine how busy and overwhelming the coming days will be! Packing, cleaning, organising, unpacking.. but finally we are going to move and I’ve been waiting for this time for the past 4 months!! I am going to share everything with you on myย Instagram stories, so don’t forget to follow along! ๐Ÿ™‚

Fall is one of my favourite seasons. I love the cooler weather that allows layering but still going out bare legs. And still not the Amsterdam freezing days! And I love wearing knitwear!

  nickyinsideout - shopping - trend report - yellow - yellow sweater  

I already started picking a few key pieces for fall and have been loving yellow knits for the upcoming season, like the one I am wearing today (which I recently found at Topshop)!

Check out my top 5 picks below:

  • TOPSHOP: the one I am wearing. I fell in love with the seventies vibe of the big buttons and the mustard shade;
  • ASOS: a knitted ruffle jumper is a must have this fall;
  • RIVER ISLAND: a three quarter double frill sleeve in knit fabric is a great idea for a more dressy look. This one would look great with palazzo trousers and heels! And it’s on sale too!
  • SAMSOE & SAMSOE ON NA-KD: a golden yellow with braided and criss cross detailing and an oversized fit.
  • PRETTYLITTLETHING: I like the super ladder distress V neck. This one would look very cool layered with a simple white t-shirt and boyfriend jeans.

FINALLY FOUND THE PERFECT FIT JEANS!

Finding the ‘perfect fit jeans’ that gives credit to all of ours right places can be a real mission impossible. Today I did the job for you and if you continue reading, hopefully this article will make your research much shorter and your life a little easier!

People who think, ‘jeans is just jeans’, really don’t understand that the perfect fit jeans can totally improve your outfit and your confidence in wearing it! I wear denim 7 days a week and I think so far I’ve tried it all!

When I’ve teamed up with Wrangler to show you their latest collection, the ‘body bespoke’, I didn’t expect to get so impressed by their new line! The collection offers jeans styled for each size to give everybody that shape they were looking for! What I loved the most is that they’re high waisted and with the right amount of stretch without awkwardly squashing my butt. ย The pockets are placed exactly on the right position and have a smooth straight leg without being too skinny. This is what I call the perfect fit jeans!

Wrangler have developed a unique technology in the jeans industry that defines the most flattering proportion and position for the back pockets and seams, creating jeans that perfectly fit all women giving equal attention to every size.

What’s better on the list than a weekend designer shopping at reduced prices with your girlfriend?ย McArthurGlen Designer Outlet Roermond is just a couple of hours drive from Amsterdam towards the South of Holland. So I say, if you live in The Netherlands, Belgium, North of Germany or you’re visiting any of these places on holiday.. grab your friend and call it a weekend! One of great fun and amazing fashion finds!

Moreover, we seemed to be arrived at the right time of the year! A new extension has recently opened with more than 50 additional stores! Think of french must have labels: Maje, Sandro, Zadig & Voltaire and great selection of designer sunglasses at Sunglass hut. This means extra savings on outlet prices and you still have time! It’s until August 13th!

Now, take a look at my picks I’ve styled in 5 different outfits, all currently still in store at McArthurGlen Designer Outlet Roermond!

Every single minute of this trip it’s been so much fun! Iris and I left Amsterdam on our Tesla Model X and after two hours driving we were ready for some serious shopping spree!

Since apparently you can’t always have it all, we were not that lucky with the weather.. Wind and rain didn’t leave us alone, but luckily McArthurGlen Designer Outlet Roermond offers 12 food options and restaurants to hide and enjoy some good food. Our favourite lunch was at Wagamama on the last day, serving delicious and heahlty lunch options and a great service!

Finally, what also impressed me was how Mc Arthur Glen Designer Outlet Roermond was close to the city centre. Just litelly a walk away. I remember visiting outlets before and they were always located in the middle of nowhere and you couldn’t really enjoy the neighbourhood. We walked from the Outlet to the city centre for aperitivo and a nice dinner and this was the cherry on top for the perfect girls trip!
