Trend report: Fluffy fashion

19-01-’14
fluffeeh fluffy fashion trend report blog sarandipity mode moda polyvore style styling inspiration faux fur

Hi lovely followers,

How are you guys doing? I am doing a bit better and I seem to get a bit more inspired so you guys probably can expect some nice blogposts next week! Probably also because of the start of Amsterdam Fashion Week, which for me will start tomorrow with a bloggers network event with some nice blog workshops as well! I am super excited, that’s for sure! ๐Ÿ™‚ 

Since it’s Sunday it’s time for a nice trend report and since it’s still sort of winter (it’s actually not that cold at all in Holland except for the evenings), I went for the faux fur / fluffy trend. Comfort is key during the colder seasons but we still want to look our best, don’t we? With these faux fur coats and gilets you will! My favorite is the one from Maison Scotch in the right corner! That coat is just lovely but unfortunately it’s not very cheap haha. Hey I just saw the jacket is now in SALE, it still costs โ‚ฌ135 but that’s not that bad at all compared to the โ‚ฌ270 it used to cost before! ๐Ÿ™‚ You can buy this beauty over here. With a faux fur coat like this you will definitely be seen and it’s an amazing statement piece on a more simple outfit!

I really like the fluffy jumper with grey leopard print as well, this item would be lovely to style with a pair of black jeans or pants and with a statement necklace. This jumper seems to be super fluffy as well which means only one thing; comfy!! ๐Ÿ˜€ 

Wearing comfy fashion items can make you feel good and can give that little bit of extra cuteness or spice (depending on the fluffy item of course) to your look!

Which item is your favorite? Let me know in a comment ๐Ÿ™‚

xoxo Saranda

Quote from Bill Cunningham

Hi guys,

Happy Saturday! ๐Ÿ˜€

Thanks to the course Fashion Journalism I am watching diverse fashion documentaries and reading about some very meaningful people in the fashion industry. One of these is of course Anna Wintour and I loved being able to see about how she is of screen and how everything behind the scenes at VOGUE is… “The September Issue” really is a fashion documentary worth watching! It’s a must see actually if you would want to work in fashion! Bizarre how hard they need to work and it is super admirable! The documentary I will be watching this weekend is the one about Bill Cunningham. 

Bill is a great street photographer from New York and I think this documentary will be super inspiring as well. For now I found this quote from Bill and I think this is just true. Being able to dress the way you like and you feel good with is super important for human well-being. Plus, your outfit can change your mood but also has a lot of impact on the first impression you give others! You’ll probably recognize the feeling of being lazy in your PJ’s or Onesie the whole day, but when you take a shower and put on some normal clothes, you’ll just get more productive and less lazy! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Besides the quote I love the picture as well, Anna Wintour is telling Bill Cunningham a secret, apparently and I think it’s just wonderful to see how he is enjoying listening to her. 

Credits for the photo go to Micheal Dumler from On Abbot Kinney, a lovely photography blog with amazing streetstyle shots! You should definitely visit his website ๐Ÿ™‚  

Ciao lovely followers!!

The red dress – Outfit post

16-01-’14


Hi lovely followers,

Today I will be going to Amsterdam again for my second day of the Fashion Journalism course! I am super excited again and can’t wait to learn more! One of the perks we have as the fashion journalism students is that we will be attending Amsterdam Fashion Week! I already have two invites but of course it would be awesome to be able to go to more shows! Tomorrow we will be discussing who will go to which show so fingers crossed that I can pick a nice show which I am not already invited for haha ๐Ÿ˜‰

For now, let me show you this look I shot Wednesday last week with the lovely Nathalie! Since we were going to have diner with a group of other bloggers and had a wine tasting afterwards I wanted to wear something a little bit special. So I decided to put on this simple but lovely red dress! The total look has some fierceness thanks to the boots, biker jacket and the bag! Also I am wearing my favorite necklace! <3

I am wearing; red dress from SOHO, bouclรฉ biker jacket from the MANGO, boots from H&M, Nathalie’s bag and my necklace which is from GUESS.

What do you guys think of this look? Please let me know in a comment ๐Ÿ™‚

Ciao!!
