In search of new brands, I always keep my five C’s in mind. Colourful, Creative, Child Friendly, Conscious and Coocoo (humour). It is nice to have a mnemonic aid (ezelsbruggetje) to keep me focused, sometimes I find it hard to keep in mind what the original Mio Meraki flavour is and how I can stick to that.
Actually, I think it’s hard to find your style (and stick to that) in generally. So easy to get ‘inspired’. Before you know it you will find yourself walking the streets in a long boho-chique kind of flower dress not knowing who is that friendly old female dwarf (kaboutervrouwtje) that is staring back at you from the shopping window (true story)
I love it when people have their own signature style. Very inspiring…;-) So when we started this series we immediately knew we had to go to Pien. (Talking about having your own signature style!) We had to! You can imagine how happy I was when Pien said yes.
We had a great time last Sunday, Kees and Dorus did such a good job being themselves, ignoring the camera or that crazy lady with all the clothes. I love the result. I think its Colourful, Creative Child Friendly and a bit Coocoo. See for yourself!
