Audition time

Hi dear vintage lovers,
Today I have my audition for the art academy. I' m so nervous, because I want it so bad to study there. Art and fashion are my passion so this school would be amazing for me. So fingers crossed that I will be accepted:)
Love, F

Long gone...but not for long

Hii dear readers,
Sorry we have been so long gone. But we want to make some changes. Another way..more vintage and more posts. Ofcourse it takes some time deciding all of this togehter, also because we are going back to school now...hopefully. When we have news you all will be the first to know!
Are you also starting a new year of school? What are you going to wear your first day?
If you have any questions our suggestions for our blog, please contact us:)

Love F&E

Hi readers,
Today the King and Queen of the Netherlands were in my hometown. It was so nice to see how many people actually came to see them! I had to work, but fortunally we had an amazing view as you can see on some pictures.
Later this day I coloured my hair for the first time:) It's a little more blond, but not exacly like I wanted it to be. But afterall I will just have to get used to it I guess and otherwise I'll colour it again;) will be posted later, because now it looks awful because of the hairdryer and the wind haha

What did you do today?

Cocktails, work and friends

Hi dear readers,
Yesterday evening I went out with friends from my work at Sacha shoes. We had a table full of good food and lots of cocktails.
Because there was a soccermatch earlier that evening there also were lots of happy supporters.
At some point we were so stuffed with food, but there was still much what to do with the leftovers? Well, we gave it to the outrages and extreme happy soccer supporters and got free cocktails in return! Unfortunally I didn't spot any nice vintage outfits or other kinds of vintage inspiration to make pictures of, so I just took some of the food and drinks we had:)

Hi Vintage fans,

Yesterday I went to Amsterdam with a friend. She is a model and I help her shopping and styling sometimes! She also had a casting at Tommy Hilfiger and I had the privilige to go with her! It was so amazing to see...clothes everywhere! Blouses, shorts, dresses, lots of hawai prints and the shoes<3 I could have spend the whole day just there, but Amsterdam has so much more to offer!
Personally I love to just walk around and look at other peoples style and walk into some stores from time to time. So much inspiration everywhere around me makes me happy:)
What do you love about Amsterdam?

This is what I was wearing that day.
( Dress: Primark, Shoes: Dr. Martens, Bag: Made myself, Jacket: vintage)

Enjoy your evening!

Audrey Hepburn

Hi you all!

Today is the day that Audrey Hepburn would have become 84! Happy birthday to you Audrey! Unfortunally your not here anymore, but that doesn't mean that you are not still a true source of inspiration! Cause to me you absolutely are!
I have always been inspired by her, haven't you?

Love for Dr. Martens

Hi you vintagelovers out there,

Today I'm wearing my new Dr. Martens! I bought them last week and I love them:)
These shoes are a serious addiction I'm afraid haha...don't you love docs?
Besides that there is not much going on these days. Right now I am enjoying my lunchbreak at a bench next to a man singing and playing his guitar...feels like summer to me;)

Enjoy your day lovelys!

Floral jeans!

Hii lovely readers,

How was your queensday yesterday? Hopefully you enjoyed your day!
And what did you all think of the royal dresses? I thought they were amazing!
Today the sun is shining, so I thought if I have to wear a jeans to work, than atleast let it be a floral one. So I opend my huge closet and this one came out! I bought it at H&M the other day! Lovely print don't you think?

Don't forget to visit our marktplaats! New stuff will be online soon!

Hello Everyone,

Tomorrow it's Queensday here in Holland! It's a day full parties, markets, decorated bikes and lots of orange! But tommorow's Queensday is special, because our lovely queen Beatrix abdicates, and so we will get a King! It is going to be the last queensday for years, because from next year on it will, ofcourse, be Kingsday!
Unfortunally I have to work, so not that much fun for me:(
But I hope you all enjoy your day tomorrow!
What are your plans?

The bench and us!

A few days ago we went to the Efteling! We both love this park and it's wood of fairytales. That's where we took this picture together:)That vintage bench we are sitting on is an item I would love to have at cute. Every time when I go to the Efteling I have to take a picture at that bench:) Sometimes I look at those pictures and I always remember the happy and no stress feeling that that place gives me.
Do you have any nice places you love to go once in a while, like me and that bench by the castel of the sleeping beauty?

Druk, druk, druk/ Busy, busy , busy

Bonjour everyone,
Today we have done a lot of work here at Fauve et Elizabeth. First we gave our blog a makeover, and it looks much better now, what do you think? It was a search where to begin and how everything worked, but we think eventually it turned out really nice!
We also did some shopping today and it's only days away till the first stuff will be online.
Keep watching us to be up to date:)




Bonjour iedereen,
Vandaag weer veel gedaan hier bij Fauve et Elizabeth. De blog hebben we eens even goed onder handen genomen en ziet er nu een stuk beter uit, wat vinden jullie ervan? Het was wel even zoeken hoe we alles moesten doen en rechtzetten, maar volgens ons is het goed gelukt!
Verder hebben we nog wat inkopen gedaan en het is dagen aftellen totdat de eerste spulletjes online staan. Dus blijf ons bezoeken:)

Eerste post! First post!

Dear readers,

Let's introduce ourselves...we are Yaël and Kicky and we own this blog: Fauve et Elizabeth. On this blog we will especially talk about vintage. On we sell vintage clothes, bags, shoes accesoires etc. We both really love this old style, but unfortunally it is very hard to find and if you go to an actual vintageshop most stuff is way to expensive. We thought this was a pitty, so we decided to do it differently. We want to make people happy with the amazing second hand stuff we find! So for little prices you can find the best vintage stuff at our 'webshop'.
On our blog you can find what's new, what we are doing here at Fauve et Elizabeth, but also nice stylingtips.
At the moment everything is still in making, but keep an eye on this blog, because very soon the firts items will be realeased here and you will be the first to know!

Hopefully you will follow our blog and please...spread the word:)

Yaël and Kicky(Fauve et Elizabeth)


Lieve lezers,

Even voorstellen...wij zijn Yaël en Kicky en wij beheren deze blog: Fauve et Elizabeth. Op deze blog gaat het voornamelijk over vintage. Via marktplaats verkopen wij vintage kleding, tassen, schoenen, accessoires etc. Wij houden beide enorm van deze stijl, maar helaas is het vaak niet goed te vinden en als je naar een echte vintage winkel gaat betaal je er enorm veel voor. Dit vonden wij erg jammer en kwamen daarom op het idee om het eens anders te doen. Wij willen graag mensen blij maken met de geweldige 2e hands vondsten die wij doen! Dus voor niet al te veel kun je bij ons de leukste vintage artikelen vinden!
Op onze blog kun je vinden what's new , wat er zoal gaande is bij Fauve et Elizabeth, maar ook leuke stylingtips. 
Op het moment is alles nog in making, maar houd deze blog goed in de gaten, want binnenkort zullen de eerste artikelen verschijnen en dan ben jij als eerste op de hoogte!

Hopelijk tot snel bij Fauve et Elizabeth en please.... spread the word:)

Au revoir,

Yaël en Kicky(Fauve et Elizabeth)
