OOTD: CROP


Ph: Roel van Tienen
skirt - Monki, top - H&M divided, sunnies - H&M

Another outfit I wore in Trapani.
During my holiday I happen to notice some of the turmoil on the # fatkini. Some praised the girls, others were saying the girls are advertising obesity... Personally I think it's kind of cool, loving your body and showing it off just the way it is!

GUEST WRITER || JURMELYN


Greetings...


I’m Jurmelyn, finder of "Jewelry by Jurmelyn". I’m originally from Suriname, born and raised with the Javanese culture in a mixed society. I moved to Rotterdam, the Netherlands at the age of 21 and I must say, I do not regret the decision of moving so far from my family.. And of course, I really do miss my parents and siblings, but what is more challenging than designing your own life, learning from your mistakes, making new friends who you treat like family and embracing the change of a four season Holland. Being creative has always been a part of me, this is my way of expressing my thoughts and accepting the differences in everything.
Like art, my jewelry are designed with passion and personality.
Each bracelet has it's own personality, inspired by nature, the people I keep surrounding myself with and also the strangers who tell their story through their eyes.

Here are some of my creations:



"Rebellion of Innocence.. " Men's bracelet

Inspired by Rebelliousness when the skull is used to invoke fear and Innocence, a certain degree of childlike appearance the large eye sockets of the human skull displays.
The Singlet Snake knot braided nylon thread meets the "Pele Lith" Lava Stone beads with an Old Gold washed Metal Skull.



”Mystique.. " Women’s bracelet


Inspired by the mysterious colours of the night.
The Purple Green round Crystal beads combined with Rosé washed micro-beads.




"Sweet Summer.. Green Eyes" Women’s bracelet

Beauty in the eyes of the beholder.
Inspired by the beauty of the iris, the beautiful life story that varies from person to person.
An unique combination of blue-green and yellow round crystal beads are braided with a nylon thread, both ends finished with a gold and rose washed micro-bead.

I hope you like the story behind every design,

Love,
Jurmelyn

PERSONAL: AND OFF...

Hey guys!

Today we're flying to Sicily for a well deserved holiday - if I may say so myself. I'm so looking forward to sunny days at the beach and no alarm in the morning for a week!
I decided to take a real vacay, and leave the laptop behind. So no blogging for one week! When I'm back I'll show you my favourite summer outfits and holiday snapshots as always. In the meantime make sure you follow me on Instagram, @lindakorner, I will share some photo's there from time to time.

See you in a week!

ART || TERRY RICHARDSON


Is Terry Richardson an artist or a predator?’ the New York Magazine wrote about a month ago. Richardson, born August 14 1965, is one of the most (if not thé most) controversial fashion photographer I've ever heard about. He's a hero for some. He's good with the top of the celebrity world: he and Lady Gaga collaborated on a book (Lady Gaga x Terry Richardson), and he made videos for Beyoncé (XO) and Miley Cyrus (Wrecking Ball). He works for luxury brands Valentino and YSL, and mass-market brands Target and H&M. He even had Barack Obama in front of his camera! Richardson has the habit of including himself in shots of celebrities, and well, the all seem to love him. It's like an honor to pose with him, and adopt some aspect of his signature look, such as his glasses or thumbs-up gesture (source).







But there an other side to Terry Richardson as well. There's a hailstorm of rumors that he routinely sexually exploits and assaults models. And no, not famous ones like Kate Moss or Cara Delevingne - he wouldn't dare! -, but young, vulnerable girls, who are new in business. The proud pervert has, outside his commercial work, produced a series of extremely explicit images—often including himself naked and erect (source). During the last few years a lot of women stood up and told their story, about how 'uncle Terry' wanted them to get naked, how he pressed his dick in their faces, how he abused them, and how photo shoots turned out in sexual act after sexual act.














The dutch NRC quotes: "But [Richardson] seems either unaware of or unwilling to acknowledge the ways in which coercion can be unspoken and situational. A prominent photography agent identifies the potential for abuse. “Kate Moss wasn’t asked to grab a hard dick,” this person says. “Miley Cyrus wasn’t asked to grab a hard dick. H&M models weren’t asked to grab a hard dick. But these other girls, the 19-year-old girl from Whereverville, should be the one to say, ‘I don’t think this is a good idea’? These girls are told by agents how important he is, and then they show up and it’s a bait and switch. This guy and his friends are literally like, ‘Grab my boner.’ Is this girl going to say no? And go back to the village? That’s not a real choice. It’s a false choice."

So, is Terry Richardson a predator in my opinion? I think he is. Does that make him less of an artist? I don't think so. The thing is, it doesn't matter how talented he is and how amazing his pictures are. He's a pervert. A molester. He abuses his power over these young girls (and boys!). And I think that's reason enough for all those celebs, model agencies, magazines and brands, to boycott him and his work. 'Cause who wants to contribute to the platform of a outright criminal?

I'm curious... what's your opinion?

DIARY: GARDEN PARTY

dress - H&M conscious collection, flowercrown - Monki

Last Saturday Roel and I threw a garden party. Since Roels birthday is in July and mine is in September we decided to celebrate together somewhere in the middle. It felt a bit strange to have a birthday party when it's not even my birthday (yet), but it was a great day! A good atmosphere, great weather and everyone was getting along. O, and we got some awesome gifts, in preparation our big trip in January! Grateful!
A garden party is the perfect occasion to wear my flower crown again! Matches well with this purple dress I think!
(although I have to invest in a better strapless bra I guess... especially after I had seen these pictures... :o underwear is everything!)
We started at 4 in the afternoon and the last person left at 4 in the morning... So it's gonna be a sleepy Monday! But every yawn will remind me of this great party! ;)
How was your weekend?
