Spotted Style meets the stylist Denise Ruigrok van der Werven!


She is 25years old, born in Rotterdam, now living in Hendrik-Ido-Ambacht. After 8 years of studying, Denise graduated 2 courses: Graphic Design – Fashion & Trends at Grafisch Lyceum Rotterdam and Allround Styling at Artemis Styling Academy Amsterdam.

Denise is the classy elegant lady with style wearing a dress, high heels and walking down the street with grace! We met her and spent a few lovely hours with her. The interview continued a bit longer than usual, but there were so many interesting things about Denise and we were curious to hear everything about her Fashion career.

Accessory details by Artelier



We are showing you one of our favorite jewels of the world collection of Artelier. New York City ring with a hidden map of the subway! Travel the world with Artelier’s collection! Because details matter!

 Artelier’s inspiration comes from memories linked to its travels – to those places that have fascinated Artelier; destinations that have fed the desire to discover more. The World Collection is the link between us all – a universal aesthetic that reflects our shared passion for traveling, design, and art.

Every piece of jewelry from Artelier World Collection will evoke a fantastic, unique story from each individual’s mind – from the sepia-toned stories of our past to the dream-fueled light of our current visions and desires.

Artelier’s latest City Collection is its invitation to share history  in the cities we hold most dear through the expression we know best: artisan crafted jewelry. It is the natural evolution of the World Collection – landing on  love for timeless urban glam, manifested in  wearable works of art.

Be spotted at COTTONCAKE


While wanderlusting and exploring Amsterdam we spotted another unique place that we are adding to our Spotted Style places guide- the COTTONCAKE. The store for designer’s clothes and accessories, soft fabrics, art, different concept, organic food and attention to the detail. It is both a shop and a cafe. Best choice for SPOTTED STYLE, taking in mind that we are fashion addicts and love good coffee! This place is influenced by continuously looking for inspiration and travelling Berlin, Melbourne, London and New York. At COTTONCAKE you will find items that will give you the love-at-first-sight feeling. Full of little treasures and special picks, COTTONCAKE shows you what’s different, that has been found and helps you choose your must haves for the season!


COTTONCAKE has a cozy, lovely atmosphere which makes your shopping experience very pleasant. You can find a whole new outfit for your wardrobe. From edgy festival outfits, a super soft knit, Swedish sunglasses, a good gift, and new designer’s art work, to coffee table books. All the brands in the collection differ every season. COTTENCAKE often travels the world to find new, unique items, and update it’s collection continuously. A few of our favorite brands you might find in store are Samsoe & Samsoe, Storm & Marie, Just Female, Black Lily, One Teaspoon, Gestalten books and Monocrafft.

Inside you’ll find a hang out for your daily coffee shot or a long and lazy brunch with friends. The menu features several breakfast and lunch options, fresh juices and home made cakes. Think of a healthy superfood breakfast smoothie, home made walnut–banana bread or a quinoa and lentil salad – combined with a cappuccino and a fresh apple-kale-lemon juice. Would you like some comfort food? Try the toasted sandwich with vegetables, organic salami and lots of melted Dutch farmer’s cheese. The main part of the menu is vegetarian and gluten free. You can also enjoy some vegan and sugar free options.


COTTONCAKE believes that serving great food starts with using high quality ingredients. The coffee is made using Two For Joy’s super fresh beans, roasted just around the corner in Amsterdam. The sandwiches are served on organic spelt bread from bakery Brood. A ‘tea sommelier’ from Evermore selects our range of teas.

Every six months COTTONCAKE exposes the work of a new, upcoming artist. All works are for sale in the store.
