Romwe giveaway

Hola ladies! Last week I had my last day at work for Fashionchick.nl, which means I'll have more time for blogging again. I've really missed reading all of your blogs and I'm looking forward to catching up. Anyway, as a way to celebrate my 'comeback', I whipped up a little giveaway with one of my favorite shops: Romwe!

Amsterdam Fashion Week F/W 2013

Yesterday I had a really long and fun day at Amsterdam Fashion Week! I saw lots of amazing collections, I'll show you my favorites!
This is what I wore!

The Bravoure show was ace, lots of burnt orange, mustard, cream and black. I really feel like that cape should be mine. Loved the hair in this show as well.

Elise Kim's show was beautiful and romantic. Lots of white (which I obviously love) and a lot of great detailing on the garments. Again, lots of contrast in the sleeves, I liked the coats and dresses with mohair detailing.

Nieuw Jurk was fun and bold like only Nieuw Jurk can be.

Melissa Siegrist had a wonderful menswear collection, I especially loved the hairstyling (Fingerwaves on men! Yes!) and the shoes were such a funny detail.

Individuals' show DUALS was dark, grungy and raw. Very Lisbeth Salander.

Ado les Scents by Hyun Yeu was one of my favorite collections. Great suits and coats and I'm really digging the high cuffed trousers. It breaks my heart to think that the majority of men in this world choose to wear shiny jackets, baggy jeans and ugly sneakers when they could look this chic instead. What went wrong there?

L.Go and A-Money on a little break.

My absolute favorite collection was Winde Rienstra's. I don't really have to explain why, do I? Stunning to the very last detail, so wonderfully ethereal. And did you see those cardboard shoes?!

I'm off to Belgium now, my friends Marie and Jonathan are getting married! Unfortunately I'll be missing the rest of Fashion Week but I'll be back on Sunday for one last show.

P.S. of course all the photos are by me, except for the ones that I'm in. If you want to use any of these photos, send an e-mail my way and we'll figure something out.


Modefabriek 2012

On Sunday we went to Modefabriek, a fashion convention where brands show their new collections for fall/winter 2012-2013.

I'm wearing an all H&M outfit with shoes from Esprit and Amanda is rocking Versace, of course.

These Alexander McQueens almost came home with me. But of course they didn't.

Mette is too adorable.

Lucy's awesome mani.

Pretty pastels at Anecdote.

I loved these prints at Mina UK.

I had a very lovely day!

I've been shopping so much in the sale! I'll show you a post soon with all my shoppings.

Daniel and I decided a few months ago that we are going to Primavera Sound festival in Barcelona again in 2012. This week it was confirmed that The Cure are going to play a two hour show there, so I couldn't be more excited!

My Swedish TV debut

Ok, in all the years of running this blog, I don't think I've ever given you the possibility to hear my voice. This week Swedish national tv-channel SVT has the scoop with a segment of me running around Amsterdam, showing you my favorite shops. Watching myself talk and walk and move is one of the most awkward things imaginable sooo I'm pretty mortified but honored at the same time!

Swedes can see the episode on SVT2 today (Friday) at 12:00, tomorrow (Saturday) at 17:50 and Monday at 0:20. And everyone can just go and watch it on SVTplay here. My part starts around the 14th minute. Aaah!


Photo report: Elle Style Awards 2012

Yesterday I went to the Elle Style Awards 2012 with my girls Amanda and Mette. The theme was The Roaring Twenties. Dresscodes don't get better than that.

My outfit: vintage dress and Nelly.com shoes

Three stylists were nominated for the ELLE H&M Stylist Award. They all presented six looks inspired by a 1920's theme. Maaike Staal had the theme Metropolis. Awesome pieces!

And then it was time to party! The photo above was taken by the girls from Fashionscene.nl. Do you see my camera strap? Expect a DIY tutorial soon!

So glad I could be there! I wish there were 1920's themed parties all the time.
