To be or not to be...ish

Personal style: do we use it to pop up or to blend in?

People: Noukster in The City

She's Anouk, she's Dutch and she's got style. She shares images of her daily outfits, shopping finds, and more.
Having such beautiful facial features only helps her convey the style message and she has a super cute "assistant" [I'm not spoiling it: you'll have to see for yourself].
Visit her blog for inspiration. You can vote for her in the next four days or so in a style contest.

This is me admiring Anouk
