Some things stay and so things go

I have wanted a Kenzo sweater ever since it was a fashion must have in 2012. I clearly remember Andy Torres wearing the sweater at NYWF in that same year and I was sold. I loved everything about that sweater, the color, the tiger and the pop of Kenzo in it. But unfortunately for me I didn’t really  have that money to spend back then and when I finally did manage to save up some money, the sweater was already gone… and my other attempts kinda failed as well. But some years later on a simple stop to my second home ( deBijenkorf) I saw fresh new Kenzo sweaters hanging in the most beautiful colors, so naturally I started walking towards the Kenzo corner and then I saw this beauty and could not stop myself from trying it on. It was a perfect match, a little bit tight around the fatness but we can work on that this summer.

Big, Beautiful and Fabulous

Dear readers,

It’s been a while, can’t say I am back again, but I am trying. I love photography and I love taking pictures of people that inspire me. I feel blessed that I have met this person and that we have stayed in touch even though our paths went different directions. And now, I can call him my friend. A friend that is different, and a friend that taught me to challenge the beauty ideals. Because It is easy to see the world in the most obvious way and it is more challenging to look at the other side and create your own form of beauty and set your own standards. I asked if a could take pictures of him and  I asked some question to give you guys a little bit of inside about my beautiful friend. I hope that he will inspire you guys like he inspired me. So without further ado, meet Ali!

Fotografie Workshop Voor Fashion Bloggers!

Hello lovely readers, it’s been a while but finally I think I can find the time to blog and just to talk to you guys. But I have something that you might really like specially if you are a Dutch blogger or living in the Netherlands. I have been working with a photographer for a while now for school and my internship and since she is a skilled artist in photography and teaches photography in her courses I thought why not develop a workshop for fashion/ lifestyle bloggers…

I remember when we just started blogging we always wondered what kind of camera and lenses other bloggers used and how did they edit the pictures to create a mood or tell a story. We had a lot of questions but paying for a very expensive course was not worth our money or time. We did a lot figuring out ourselves when it came down to working with a Canon camera. Most of the time we didn’t really know what we were doing usually just using the automatic stand on our camera. Yet you can do so much more and since I was working for Esther Quelle, the photographer, I have learned so much more. For example about daylight and artificial light and how I can use it to my advantage.

We as bloggers rely on good images and photo’s to tell our story and to catch our readers and visitors eyes, we need to be skilled in the art of photography, it’s a must. I know that a lot of you who are starting out want to have professional photos on your blog this way not only readers and visitors will take you serious but other companies and businesses will take you serious as well. And they would more likely want to work with you. It takes more than being creative to present yourself in a appealing way for other business, yet being creative is a good start!

Twenty shades of Konstantina

I first ever heard of Konstantina Tzagaraki on lookbook. This very beautiful tall girl with dark hair has an amazing sense of style and a mesmerizing face. You can find her on lookbook and Instagram, she is most active there. This goddess from Greece brings it! She brings inspiration to the table, she brings style, creativity, feminism and fashion. I would consider her someone who dares to be different than the rest, she standout from the crowd. And more importantly, the reason why I am sharing twenty different shades of Konstantina is because she also stands out from other fashion bloggers in my opinion. If you have followed the blogger community from the beginning you would probably agree with me that most popular fashion/ style bloggers are now more focused on designer brands, making a name, establishing a business, its less about the style ( which what most of them began with) and more about business. That is totally fine but it takes away my interest…

Picture Time!

I suppose you can relate and understand me more through pictures and images. Some are on my Instagram and some are not ;P  I find a lot images funny, inspiring. Or just some quotes that I can relate to. Usually I just save those images on to my phone and I don’t post them on my instagram or facebook. But I decided to give some inside and share some words. Tell me what you think? @lostinthegardn

I hope you all lovely people had a charming Christmas this year with lots of presents and food.
I had a lot of fun with this eye fish lens for your phone. I bought it at Hema and I also bought it for my friends and everybody loved it.. you should defiantly check it out! 

Rodney and I decided to take a trip to a designer outlet in Roermond. He wanted to buy a designer bag for his moms birthday and was eyeing a Prada cardholder. The whole getting to Roermond was just one thing, I won’t go into details but we missed two trains because of moi. But we ended up having a blast with the fashion guru, so all was well.
