Meet the latest addition to my closet.

A really unique black shaped bag from a new discovered online store (go check it out if you’re a bag lover). Call me superficial, but this perfect black baby made me such a happy girl. Definitely my no. 1 favorite piece as we speak. However, I have been vegan for over 4 months now. My diet – I hate that word, I’d rather call it a way of eating – is something I felt (and still feel) very passionate about for personal, ethical, health, and environmental reasons. I mean, even when I was little – like 6 or 7 y/o – I can remember myself feeling ‘off’ about consuming meat and wearing leather, especially from ungrown animals like calfs and young sheeps. I just thought it was rude to use them in whatever way. It somehow took me years and years to make the switch and start a vegan lifestyle. I did however and I’m still very happy I made the change, it just feels like the right thing to do for me, it just feels like me being more ‘me’ really. But yeah, why am I bringing this up again? Well, I get a lot of questions about it and I do am thinking about doing something with it on my blog or throughout my socials, buttt.. – yes, here come the but – I do still like and own well-made leather and high-quality wool products. I know. And really, I have no good reasons or justifications other than pretty superficial ones. It might sound ignorant, but I’m perfectly aware that it’s wrong, I am fully conscious of what I’m doing. I just don’t know if I can be this fully vegan person in terms of the total lifestyle, I try to be however. I just don’t know, I guess I still need to learn and grow as a person, also as a vegan. Would really love to hear your thoughts on mine. Have a great week! x Fre

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.
