This feels so surreal, guys! When I woke up today and made my way to yet another Chelsea-located Starbucks once again, I started surfing for articles on this edition of NYFW. I knew I was caught on camera several times yesterday. But it didn’t cross my mind that they would actually publish any of these photos and/or write something about this. Well, oh-so wrong I was. I was featured here, here and here. “The Only Interesting Outfit at Fashion Week Yesterday” and “A New York Fashion Week Street-Style Look to Wear Any Time”. Quoted, The Cut “It’s probably time to stop complaining about the weather, but yesterday was pretty brutal. Weirdly high temperatures and humidity didn’t stop some people from breaking out the Vetements hoodies. Do they have some secret air-conditioning system that normal people lack? That’s why this girl is so refreshing. Her easy combination of a gold skirt, black top, and sneakers is practical but stylish. Add to that a pair of quirky cat-eye glasses and she’s almost a chic normal. Which, really, in a sea of peacocks is the best way to stand out.” Quoted, The Cut at NY Mag.

My name is Frederique and I run this personal style blog. After graduating from law school in April 2014 – University of Utrecht (The Netherlands), exchange: Uppsala (Sweden) and UC Berkeley (USA) – I built FAB le Frique from scratch and decided to spread my lifelong interest in fashion and lifestyle with the world (wide web). Taking a leap of faith, making a career transition, leaving a known and charted career path is scary. But if the only actual obstacle blocking me from doing what I’m truly passionate about is ‘fear’, I hereby conquer my fears and go forward with my passion.
