Aloha! Hawaii is here!

Posted by Iris van Hees on 10 mei 2016 in

Aloha! Summer is finally here and there’s one thing that just really screams summer to me.. Hawaii shirts! Yes, they may seem a little bit corny maybe or like something only a fat American tourist would wear, but NO! Hawaii shirts are super awesome! You just have to make sure you wear them right. In

What To Wear When..

Posted by Iris van Hees on 6 mei 2016 in

What to wear when according to Carrie Bradshaw Yes. We’ve all experienced it. You have a party to attend but abso-freakin’-lutely no idea what to wear. You have to leave for work in 2 minutes but can not decide between your jeans and that cute dress. You have a first date in a week and

I R I S No, it’s not a documentary about our Porch People boss. (I would definitely watch that though) ‘Iris’ is a documentary about the 94 year old style icon and interior designer Iris Apfel. I myself am not really an extravagant dresser. You could say I’m more of a fan of the ‘normcore’

Four Decades of Kate Moss

Posted by Iris van Hees on 25 april 2016 in

It’s a shame Ms. Moss didn’t get a bigger role in our recent 90’s revival post. Kate Moss is certainly someone who spoke fluent 90’s fashion. But still now she is one hell of a fashion icon with her casual but still edgy outfits. Kate’s model looks were discovered at JFK airport when she was

50 Shades of Orange

Posted by Iris van Hees on 21 april 2016 in

Mustard, sunny orange, blood orange, freakin’ terracotta or royal orange – there are lots and lots of different shades of orange, but let’s face it: there are only a few lucky people among us who can really pull of bright orange. It’s just not an easy colour to stay fabulous in. I personally think I

Talking about tattoos

Posted by Iris van Hees on 19 april 2016 in

For more than a year now I am the owner of an online folder filled with tattoo inspiration. I love tattoos, but somehow I still always chicken out when I start to think seriously about actually getting some ink. The tattoos in my folder range from very tiny stick-and-poke ones to big ass flowers, hands,

We love the 90’s!

Posted by Iris van Hees on 1 april 2016 in

Being born in the 90’s, I was too young to be really 90’s fashionable. While I was lip syncing to the Spice Girls and listening to Britney Spears my mom was making my clothes. It wasn’t until I was older that I really started to appreciate all the goodness the 90’s had brought us. Kurt

We like tough girls because they inspire us to be strong and confident in life. So we came up with a concept called ‘B*tches with Balls’ to take inspiration from the raddest girls in town. This time we met up with Lea Kliphuis: singer, songwriter and – so it seems – very much in love
