Hi lovely followers!

Last Friday I went to Amsterdam to kick of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Amsterdam with a walk through Amsterdam. I was a bit tired since it was super early but hey, it was fun and a lovely walk! We got the chance to catch up with people, meet new people and also I’ve seen some places in Amsterdam I never saw before. For example I now finally know how and where to find the famous 9 straatjes haha. Let’s just say I am quiet a noob concerning Amsterdam ๐Ÿ˜‰ I would like to thank Bloggernet, Snaptraveller, Cityhotspotter and Hotel V for the nice walk.

Since a couple of weeks a girl from my former highschool works at ilovefashionbloggers and she also did the walk, during the walk May from OHMAYGOD.com made the beautiful picture above! Besides that she is a very good photographer she’s also a true sweetheart and has a lovely blog. You guys should definitely check it out!

Read on for more about my first day at MBFWA! ๐Ÿ™‚

After the walk I changed into my more fashion appropriate outfit, since I was wearing UGGS during the long walk haha. And then it was time to go to my first show together with Nathalie and Sharon! 


We went to the Vodafone firsts lab show from Franzel Amsterdam and Duran Lantink. The shows were really cool and super fun. With one of the shows it even looked like they just grabbed a homeless guy from the streets and put him on the runway haha.

Between and after the shows I stayed with Nathalie and Joyce from Just Like Sushi at their hotel room. Since I would be sleeping at a friends house who was working at that moment I could not go anywhere haha. Thankfully these lovely ladies took me in and we had a lot of fun! The loft they were staying in at Hotel V was beautiful and super comfy. As a dinner we ordered Italian food, pasta and lasagna. Yummm! Before going to the final show from that day Nathalie did our make-up, it looked awesome! ๐Ÿ˜€ 

We also made some very goofy photos from which this one is the most normal & pretty one:

In the evening I went to my second and final show from my first day at MBFWA. The show from Jan Boelo. I really had super high expectations since everyone was sort of praising Jan Boelo’s former shows, and I really enjoyed the show, but I did not really felt a personal connection with the designs. Maybe it were the high expectations or maybe it’s just not my thing. I don’t know…

The shows I went to on Friday were perfect for me to start up. Since Fashion Week is super exhausting I am glad I went only to two shows the second day (Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Amsterdam already opened on Thursday evening).

Of course there is much more to come about my fashion week adventures later this week.
I am still very busy editing my photo’s haha ๐Ÿ˜€ 

Have a nice day everyone! xoxo
