Jeans, Secondhand/Peppermint park. T-shirt, American vintage/654.

The past days I’ve been keeping away from the computer, trying to focus on getting some quality time with André and Dylan. I do have some great pictures I’d like to show you though –I’ll make sure to post them tomorrow!


Shopping in Jean de Luz

You know I try to buy things for my home and wardrobe second hand. So when a friend of ours told us about this great little second hand shop in Jean de Luz called “Peppermint Park” we just had to pay it a visit. I found two pairs of jeans and the perfect striped sweater from Busnel that I’ve been wearing every day for the past week.

Where in the world would I find your favorite second hand store? Hit me!


My wonderful friend and constant source of inspiration Amnah created this beautiful and very important magazine. I feel like I can’t describe it and its meaningfulness better than with these praising words from an article on i-D:

“If there were ever a time for a magazine like Cause & Effect, that time is right this very second. A hardbacked, soft-paged thing of beauty, it sticks two fingers up at the pale, male and slightly deranged political climate of the West right now, and instead puts marginalised identities centre stage. As the brainchild of Saudi Arabian editor-in-chief Amnah Hafez and iconic, queer man of the universe (and regular i-D contributor) Tom Rasmussen, Cause & Effect doesn’t tiptoe around race or gender or sexuality as most mainstream magazines do, but takes them as its primary subject matter.”

Issue One took almost a year to put together, and you can see why; the magazine’s long-reads and think-pieces sensitively tackle issues around body image, HIV activism, and what goes on in the wardrobe of a leather fetishist. Then there’s the contributor list, a roll call for some of the most exciting people in fashion and art right now; Vince Larubina is senior fashion editor, editorial photography is served up by the likes of Nadine Ijewere, Thurstan Redding and Gwénaëlle Trannoy, and the mag’s cover stars include NYC voguing legend and portrait photographer Kia LaBeija, as well as bad boy designer Walter Van Beirendonck.
