ALL the time I discover and explore. You might think I only love to find new shops to buy clothes, but that's not true. I prefer discovering restaurants, museums or other must visits. I really like to do that on my own. Most of the time I do it on my own. But sometimes it's more fun to have lunch with someone, or visit a museum with friends. So that's what happened last week. The weather was more than perfect, so Nikol and I decided to walk around in the city. For the first time I saw the concept store Colette. A real fashion heaven. I tried the Céline trio bag in a pêche colour and WAUW, it's perfect. I expexted the bag a little bit bigger. So I am not sure anymore if I keep it on my wishlist. I am always carrying around one hundred things and the Céline drop-dead-gorgeous trio bag is wayyyy to small for all my mess. I also saw some nice Diptique candles and beautiful coffee-table books. So in the beginning of january, when the SALE chaos is going to start, I will visit Colette again. Maybe I will find some good bargains. After all the exploring that morning, we were hungry and we tried Le Pain Quotidien. And that's where this post is about. HOTSPOT number 2. The interior is very clean and natural, like the menu. Almost everthing is biologic and all the different kinds of bread are homemade. I tried some bread with goat cheese and roasted vegetables. Damn that was good. Had it with a homemade raspberry lemonade. I prefer that for hot summer days the next time. But what a good food. I am sure I will be coming back there very soon. Maybe already in two weeks, when my sister is here. Wanted to let her try. I am sure she will love it, like me. Do you know Le Pain Quotidien? There are a few locations in Paris, and also in Belgium. You like it?

I am REALLY into coats last time. I don´t know why exactly, but I prefer buying coats above other fashion related stuff. I just keep my normal wardrobe basic, just like I already told you a while ago. Just al the basic musthaves in black and white. And it´s going quite good. Only still looking for a dark grey and black knit. But coats, oh dear.. Can´t stop looking for them. While keeping my closet clean/basic, you can combine a lot. And with adding one gorgeous coat, it looks like you are wearing an all brand new outfit. And it’s actually only the coat who makes the difference. So yes, I am saving coats. This pink ‘fluffy’ barbe à papa coat is one of my latest obsessions. I really feel like I am a walking cotton candy. Last weekend was a real coat weekend. I bought three new ones. Also two vintage ones. Each only ten euro. Can’t wait to show you! What do you think of the Isabel Marant biker pants? I love them. I am very happy with them. The fabric is quite thick, so perfect for cold winter days like yesterday. It was a lovely day with Nikol. We had a delish lunch, which I will show you soon. Because you can call it a real hotspot. I will be back soon! Have a nice week.

INSPIRATION, you can see it, you can feel it, everywhere and nowhere. LOVE to stroll around on the internet. Especially on this cold and windy saturday evening in Paris. Behind my laptop near the heater with some candles and tea. Perfect to end my day and start my weekend. Tomorrow is it sunday which means, sleeping till late, having croissants for breakfast and rolled in pyamas the whole day. But not for tomorrow. I will wake up early and go to a big flea market with Sophie. We are looking for some nice fourniture and we hope to find it over there. Since I got my 'own' house here, I can't stop looking for home decoration. I can't stop buying things which makes my house more cozy, stylish and pleasurable. And I can't stop thinking 'this- might-be-nice-for-later' . So I am collecting a lot by the moment. Luckily my sister is coming after Christmas, so she can take one extra suitcase to take
some stuff from me back to Holland. Ok back to the article. Hope you enjoy this BIG inspiration post. I just came across these pictures and wanted to share them with you. Have a lovely weekend everyone. I will be back soon with my beloved Isabel Marant outfit and some others. Did some little shoppings this week;)

Look at her! Drop dead gorgeous Daria Werbowy on the cover of L'Express styles. Isn't she stunning? She is one of my favorite models of this moment. I love the piercing in her nose. It gives her a edgy but still a feminin touch. Her face is more than perfect with her blue burning eyes. In this issue there is big Daria editorial and I really like it. She is wearing all black oufits, which suits her amazing. Love the Gucci python top she wears on the cover. It looks so glamorous. Such a great piece for coming Christmas. Wouldn't mind to wear this. Also her make-up looks so good. It's done by Miky, a great make-up artist. Photos are made by Cass bird. What do you think of Daria Werbowy in this editorial shoot for L'Express styles magazine?

Excuse me for being the latest person on this planet talking about Isabel Marant. Excuse me, because it is almost 3 weeks after the annual date. I had a lot of wishes. Like the outfit above, perfection. But I don't have Isabel Marant money so I had to chose. First I went for boots, but those were way to big and they were not walking like heaven. So returned them and chosed something else. Maybe something way better. Maybe a life saver. Maybe something I will still be wearing when I am 50 years older. Who know? I planned several outfits with it, and it's so easy. Maybe I can see it also a perfect basic item. And I was working on a basic wardrobe, so maybe this is one of them. Ok, enough about this. You will see an outfit post as soon as possible, here at Fashion Hooked. Something more important now. I want to thank you for all the nice comments at my latest outfit post. This post has so many views and lovely comments from you. It makes me more than happy. So thanks. I was to late with Thanksgiving, and by the way, I don't celebrate it. But this is my 'Thanksgiving-thing' to you guys. Thanks for reading my blog!

Goodmorning everyone! We start this nice sunday morning with an outfit post from yesterday. I went to a christmas market with Sophie at the Champs Elysées. It was a little bit touristic, but sometimes it's good to play for tourist. So here are also some touristic outfit pictures at the Pont d'Alexandre with the Eiffel tower at the back. The sun was perfectly shining yesterday. I wore my new grey mohair coat with my new pink beanie. I wasn't really a hat person. But it's good to cover your bad hair days. And I have them quite often, so hello beanie! This is a little bit a 'coat-where-are-you-going-to' outfit. But it's so warm, fluffy and cozy. What do you say of my new sneakers? I got them from my best friends including my sister, for my 21st birthday, and I love them. Wear them almost every day. They are perfect for a long walk through the city. Have a nice sunday. I have to go now. I am going to Versailles. See you soon and let me know what you think of this outfit! p.s. those sigarettes are NOT mine. I am anti sigarettes;)

It's almost december, you can see it and you can feel it. Christmas lights are everywhere you can imagine. I already have my own christmas tree ( since october ). It's such so cozy. And who cares. I am the only one who knew it. Every night I put on the lights in the tree, put on some candles and turn on the heater. That's the only thing I love about winter. And of course I love christmas. This will be the first christmas I won't celebrate with my dearest family. I will stay in Paris. But there are already three presents under the tree, can't wait to open them. Of course I am going to buy myself a nice present. Not sure yet what it is going to be. But I have some lovely things at my wish list. I really want the IT book by Alexa Chung for example. Or a new diptyque candle. They are beautiful to pop up my Parisian interior. You can also give me the Chanel boy bag. Oh god, I am in love with that bag.. ever, that bag will be mine. I am so sure. If you are not that rich, dear Santa, please buy me Mademoiselle. The best parfume in the world. The last thing which is absolutely at my wish list ; the British Vogue with Kate Moss. Saw a sneek peak at a friend's one, and I need it.
Do you also have a dropdead gorgeous wishlist like I have? Tell me what's on it!
