So we went on a day trip to Roermond and here is our guide.

Plan your trip

It takes about 2 hours to get to Roermond with train or by car. So make sure you plan this on your day off and have all the time in the world to enjoy this little town. I would say do your share of research or get to know the brands and what to expect out of this trip. Check their website Roermond Designer outlet for brands and special offers.

How to get there?

I think taking a train is the best option. It’s a 2 hours train ride so make sure you have enough supplies of food, drinks and company. Be wise who you choose to go with because the ride is long and the outlet expedition is longer. So you don’t want to stuck with someone who is not going to enjoy shopping as much as you do.

Make a list and prioritise!

So once you get to Roermond you will be overwhelmed with the choices. This could lead to circling around and not knowing what to get. So I went with a plan. I knew I was looking for a bag and my first choice was Prada, which by the way was my final choice too 😉 . Anyhow, the point is know what you want and go through all the choices before you make that final call. So we first went to Prada and then Furla, Coach, Dolce and Gabbana, Gucci, Michael Kors and everything else.

Our favourite brands

Honestly, the outlets can some time be a bit of led down. Because all of them are not good enough. Thank us later but we are going to save you from the horror of not walking into everything. So our 10 favourites were Prada, Calvin Klein Underwear, Gucci, Coach, Furla, Michael Kors, Dolce & Gabbana, Body Shop, Levis & Nike. And 2 stores that really disappointed us were Tommy Hilfiger & Adidas.

We had such a good experience! We are sure going back 🙂

“Don’t ever forget to dress for yourself first and the rest will follow.”

Who do you dress for? Most of you may think how hard it is to answer “myself” But really who do you dress for? Some people dress to please others and make them happy. I some time hear girls say  ” Oh my boyfriend wouldn’t like that” or “No he thinks I am weird when I dress like this .” Women should dress not for men, nor even for other women, but for themselves.

I loved playing dress up as a little girl and it never really stopped for me. I like to have fun with my outfits and be creative. In the last years I have developed a big crush on men T-shits and  shirts. I tend to wear them a lot. They are just so got damn comfortable and I feel really cool when I am comfy. So when he was giving away some T-shirts and shirts, I pounced on the pile and claimed some before anyone could get their hands on. I grew up with 3 other siblings, 2 elder sisters and 1 younger brother.  I use to find his clothes more interesting and occasionally steal haha… No borrow from him. I liked it then and I like it now. Looks like nothing has changed 🙂

We don’t have to be afraid to be ourselves. Don’t let men decide what’s sexy for you, decide for yourself. If you feel sexy and great in a pair of mom jeans. Wear it and don’t give a shit. If sneakers are your thing, wear them everywhere you go. If men could dress women then we all will be stuck in a body con dress forever. Haha.. and that’s my worst fear. Take it from the Icons like Diane Keaton, Chloë Sevigny, and Fran Lebowitz, these women had great sense of personal style and they did it without embracing body con fitted dresses.

And btw, these pictures are taken after work and I am wearing that men t-shirt I was talking about 🙂

Happy week girlies!

How to wear dress over pants?

Most of you must be familiar with this dress over pants hybrid. Since, this been floating around for quite some time. Few celebrities really shocked the fashion world when they showed up in this combo for big red carpet events. This trend can be so much fun and experimentally, from flirty mini to oversized slouchy look. Like the one I am wearing in these pictures. I am a huge fan of oversized flowy dresses, for warmer days I would loose the pants and just go with the dress and sneaker combo.

Would you try it? If you get inspired to try this combination then I highly recommend checking out Monki for their ultra cool long slouchy dress section. They always stock this slouchy fitted and slightly nerdy tailored dresses.

Some things never go out of style… like leopard print & double denim.

I will always pull out my double denim when I am short of time & not sure what to wear. Double denim have always been fashions favourite baby. They would always surface around fashion week, magazine covers and street style.

Feeling like Kate Moss & Donna Pinciotti from 70s show,  I am wearing my double denim with leopard coat.

Throw me to the wolves and I will return leading the pack

Hi lovelies, how have you all been? It’s been almost 2 weeks since my last post. Well, as you all know, I am on a vacation. Quick stop in Dubai and straight home for Diwali! This Diwali was a special one for me.  My favourite festival of the year plus I was home with my family.

Well, Dubai was great expect for one thing, phone crisis all over again. One morning I woke up to a dead phone. Haha… in a weeks time I had a new phone from Apple. Well, I tried my best to bring alive my dead phone. But it didn’t workout. Since, I managed to get 2 phones in a month – I decided to share some tips and tricks to tackle iPhone crisis.

If you managed to get your phone drunk or share some of your coffee than be ready to kiss your phone good bye. Apple, will not replace your phone even under icare unless you have a separate insurance that takes care of water damage. Well, the good news is Apple will offer to replace your iPhone(6) on payment of €310.

Second scenario. What if you wake up to a dead phone? Or what can you do when your iphone acts suspicious and weird. Well, according to the internet, apple phones can act a bit strange.  iPhone6 and 6s are prone to blur screen, and software crashes and the most common frozen screen.

Follow these steps to resolve the problem:

  1. Restart your phone ( press home & start button for 10seconds).
  2. You may have to repeat step 1 for few times before it really works.
  3. If the restart fails than try to restore the phone. This means you would loose some information from your phone. Plug your phone to your computer while pressing the home button. Realize the home button, once you see connecting to iTunes on your phone screen. Go ahead and restore your phone. You may have to try this step few times before it really works.
  4. If step 3 fails, most probably it’s the end of your phone. Visit your nearest Apple store or service provider.

Note: Visit only Apple store if visiting abroad. Authorised service providers will not able to help since you need the proof of purchase.

Happy setting the new phone.

Baby, you’re so classic!

 Classic, versatile and timeless. White shirts are everything. Any women can look effortless and great without trying too hard. I believe their is a white shirt to suit every occasion. I personally have few of them to take me through every weather, occasion and mood.

So easy to style and perfect for women on the go. They would save the trouble of carrying too much and yet offer few versatile looks. From prim and proper office look to downtown messy rolled up sleeves for after work drinks.

Every girl should have 2 things in her closet; LBD & Button down white shirt.

Good Morning lovers! Guess what… the dream team is back! After powering suiting for the first time we couldn’t wait to work together. This time around we bringing something different and real. So welcome to our world.

My name is Sita Sunar and I am a stylist. My life is anything but boring. People seek my help to re-vamp their wardrobe, find the perfect dress for an occasion or simply like to try something different. Everyday is an adventure working as personal stylist. I love working with clothes and I do not dread Monday.  Blogging is my escape and an hobby. Here I get to say and do what I like. Since, my blog is about fashion and fitness. I have to be committed to it. Well, there are days when I fall for temptations. Well, It’s the discipline that teaches me to get back at it.  My typical day will start around 6.30-7am. If I do not have to work on my blog, I go for a quick 20mins run, shower and get dressed for work. Monday mornings is when I have to finish my blog post (like today), post it, 10 minutes yoga, shower and get ready for work. As I mentioned my job is anything but boring. I meet at least 10 to 15 new people everyday. I personally love working with real women who need my help. I finish work around 7ish and run straight home. Coming home to my beautiful cats is the best thing ever. I take about half hour break, have a quick snack and go to the gym. Well, things are bit different if I have planned some after work activities. Since, I have to work the most weekends. I plan my nights out according to my mood. I like to spend my days off working on my blog. It could be from shooting an outfit, working on a fitness video to finding a new inspiration.

If you are an aspiring fashion Stylist, this what you need to know:

1)It’s all about the internship: Intern for a stylist, become their assistant. This industry works by recommendations.

2) Build you work: In the beginning it is hard to make easy money. Your priority should be about getting your self out there.

3) Research and keep your self updated: Researching different looks, making appointments, gathering all the pieces for a look. It’s a lot of screen time!” Knowing the industry and what’s new is important.

4) Be confident and know yourself: Last but not least. Know your style and strength and don’t be scared to show it off.

Hope this helps you to get started.

Have a lovely week and see you soon.

Love,

Cocolett

It’s almost Autumn and what better way to welcome the sweater weather than with a crop knit. This Autumn learn how to rock a crop top to your university, office & casual date nights.

Back to University look: Are you looking to take this trend to the university? Than don’t forget to keep it young & fresh. Go for cool abbreviated sweater crops for cute young look. Emoji are everyones favourite! So, it’s not that hard to find a crop sweater with these cool figures to achieve a quirky look.

Office look: Wearing crop tops to work could be bit tricky. However, you can still wear this trend to work and still look sophisticated and professional. Give your classic denim a update and pair them with a knit sweater. Choose high waisted jeans to avoid showing a lot. A nice pair of gilet over is a good way to cover against the office air conditioning.

Casual date night: Don’t we all want to look perfect for our date nights? Yes, I do! Since we are talking about weather proof dress code. We want to cover our legs and let TOP be the hero. Pair your denim with a sheer-paneled shirt and a bralette underneath.

Don’t let winter bring you down. Get up. Dress up. Make up. And look flawless!

Love

Cocolett

Good morning lovers! It’s only Wednesday and I am already back with a new post! Hope you guys had a great start into  a new week. Mine was going just fine until the flowers in my stylist room decided to attack me and bring me down with a crazy allergy. Waking up every morning with a series of sneezes is not funny any more. I really started to think I might have a brain damage.  Thank god for a day off! I am taking a break from my pretty flowers. They are so beautiful that I don’t have the heart to throw them away.  However, I do secretly wish for them to die soon! Well, wish me luck.

Hello September! Fashions most favourite month. I believe I am going to have a best September too. Well, 1st of September started with a bang for me. And this time I am not talking about my allergy! I can not say more, but I promise to share with you at the right time.

What do you guys think about my Ear-cuff? Aren’t they lovely? I am in love with them. I did my casual tuesday with a little bling bling. As I walked from Amsterdam central station to work… everyone couldn’t stop to stare at my ear. Well, who cares. I love them! I needed that little bling for the special day. After having a good day at work. It was nice to take some pictures of my outfit with my dear friend Matilda. We only took 15mins for the picture and we were off for a lovely meal.

Wish you guys a good September!

I will be back soon!

Love,

Cocolett
