Spotted by Team Peter Stigter at MBFWA
Last weekend it was that time of the summer when fashion loving Dutchies gathered in Amsterdam for the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Amsterdam. Of course I could not let this edition pass by unnoticed so I went for 2 days and had a great time.
I went to Amsterdam Fashion Week for the opening night with shows from Aziz Bekkaoui, Judith van Vliet / Chris van den Elzen en de Haute Couture show from Monique Collignon. As it was the opening night, which sounds like a big deal to me, I decided to pull a style change and go for something high fashion but easy to wear and very French!
The statement items of this look, Culottes and the hat of course. But can you remember that one blog post I wrote about trends that I was a tat afraid of? Well I think I nailed it with the culottes this time, don’t you think so?!
At least the streetstyle photographers at MBFWA did! 😉 Feeling, looking and walking like on of your french girls felt amazing and it gave me a huge confidence boost!
Speaking of the culotte trend, I am definitely embracing this trend right now! I can’t wait to show you many more outfits with this item. I really love how the culottes make me feel super duper feminine and that you can style the culottes in a really chic sophisticated french way or casual with a sneaker or flat sandals! For this outfit I paired my culottes with a simple breton striped top (both H&M), a leather jacket from Oakwood, slingbacks and hat (also H&M) and my JoTotes camera bag.
What do you think of this french girls outfit? And what is your opinion on culottes right now?! Let me know dearies <3

Better late than never, here is my report on Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Amsterdam! Did I already tell you that I was actually sitting Front row (!!!!) at the show from SIS by Spikers & Spikers which was presented by Smart?
I felt so lucky and blessed, it actually felt a bit unreal haha. Sitting front row I felt like I meant something and that the Dutch fashion world respected me and my blog, no idea if this is actually true… But being on the front row at a show from these great Dutch designing sisters was a little bit of a dream come true!!
Today you can check out some of my photos I took during MBFWA and I’ll share my MBFWA front row opinion on the different shows I saw as well. Hope you like this post! Let me know what you think of these designs in a comment and I will get back at you 🙂

This weekend Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Amsterdam (MBFWA) took place and of course I was present! Unfortunately I was only there on one day, Saturday to be precise, and I decided that for that one special day this season I needed to show up with a cool and a little bit crazy outfit. So I wore my Spirithood and wore it while sitting FRONTROW (Still a bit flabbergasted!!) at Smart presents SIS by Spijkers & Spijkers!
When thinking about my outfit for MBFWA I wanted something that would stand out from the crowd, something fun, maybe a bit crazy, but most of all something I would feel comfortable in! So while wearing my Spirithood I also decided to make the rest a bit more casual and easy going. By wearing a black skirt and sweater with tiger head print the rest of the outfit was a bit more simple.
A Spirithood is a pretty big accessory so I felt like I needed to focus on some things to make the overall look have the same feeling and idea.
I ended up wearing my Husky hood by Spirithoods with my copy cat sweater from NIKKIE by Nikkie Plessen. Furthermore I wore a scuba skirt with flare from H&M, leather boots from DUO and studded bag from Noosa Amsterdam.

Good morning dearies!
Today I have a new outfit post for you with some new products! I wore this look on my last day at MBFWA (Amsterdam Fashion Week) and I was really looking forward to wearing this maxi dress with sheer back!
I bought it in the sale at Zara, the dress was a bit to long for a shorty like me but my mom helped out great by making the straps a little bit shorter (thank you mom!! <3). While packing my outfits and other stuff for fashion week I immediately knew this dress was perfect to show of some Bohotats from my internship! The dress with pretty deep cleavage gave me the opportunity to wear one of my favorite Bohotats, the dreamcatcher necklace!
I decided to stick to pastels for this outfit because I felt like that gave the look more flair and more of a boho-ish chic, summer vibe. Besides the fact that I am wearing some of my favorite Bohotats, I am also wearing my favorite bracelets from NOOSA Amsterdam and Pandora. And I am wearing a very cute petite mochila by Isabelli, thanks to my sweet #girlbosses at My Isabelli! I feel like this outfit succeeded thanks to the combination of the dress and the accessories. The dress itself is not that special or eye catching (although the back and side area are), and the accessories made the look work!
The total outfit: Dress – Zara / Heels – MANGO / Petite mochila – My Isabelli / Bracelets – NOOSA Amsterdam & Pandora / Bohotats / Sunglasses – Andy Wolf eyewear (thanks to bckspace eyewear Amsterdam)
What do you think of this look? To me this outfit has as a little bit of a jetset kind of feeling haha. Let me know your opinion in a comment!
The first Sunday Special is all about Tony Cohen! Ever since my interest in fashion started growing and I got to know more designers, Tony Cohen has been one of my favorite Dutch designers!
Tony Cohen always shows gorgeous feminine designs. His designs are very well made and this designer really knows how to work with different fabrics. As an auto-didactic he taught himself how to design. Amazing right?! His strength is the way he shapes his designs in a way that it accentuates the most beautiful parts of the feminine body. Kim Feenstra once told me in a short interview that in his designs you will feel sexy, powerful and feminine. My guess is that she right then told me nothing but the truth. The designs sure look like it!
As usual I loved the show from Tony Cohen! Ever since my first visit to Amsterdam Fashion Week, a little more than a year ago, the fashion show of Tony Cohen has been my highlight of fashion week. A must see.
