MBFWA reports teaser

MBFWA mercedes benz fashion week amsterdam teaser shows diary

Hi dearies,

Yesterday I got back home from MBFWA (Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Amsterdam) and I was so tired that I went straight to bed. So just a short post for now, I will post an outfit later today! ๐Ÿ™‚

MBFWA was yet again an amazing experience! I love how it feels so natural for me to be there. I total feel in my element with all the fashion peeps around me, my blogger babes, meeting new interesting people and of course seeing all the gorgeous designs of my favorite designers!ย It all started Friday morning, I was in a huge rush from 9AM to 12PM. Going to the gym, last minute shopping for a trolley and than packing all of my stuff. Luckily I already had some of my outfits for MBFWA in mind! One of the first things I packed were my heels and my mochilas from www.myisabelli.com they are all so pretty <3

On Friday I went to a couple of shows and also went to the 1 year anniversary of bckpsace eyewear. I also had a HUGE icecream since this was cheaper than buying water at Fashion Week haha.ย Furthermore you see in the collage, me picking an outfit, more fashion shows, an option for my new logo and me and my blogger babes!

Later this (and next) week you will get to see my full MBFWA reports on all the fashion shows!ย Stay tuned dearies!

Hi everyone,

I am back again! ๐Ÿ˜€ After a couple of huge and important deadlines for my course of fashion journalism I am now back to blogging… Since it’s already the 8th of February an instadiary blogpost about January is perfect, right?? ๐Ÿ™‚ 

January was a busy month, starting my fashion journalism course, events, Amsterdam FashionWeek and lots of blogger dates! Although I have been pretty busy with lots of stuff, most of the things are relaxing too. I just love the course I am following and events are cool (most of the times). Besided that Amsterdam FashionWeek was a-ma-zing and meeting my blogger babes is always super fun and a good way to relax and spend your time!

MBFWA day 3, Dorhout Mees, Tony Cohen & Winde Rienstra

Hi lovely followers,

Sorry for not posting yesterday, I just had to take some more sleep haha. Now I finally feel top-fit again to amaze you with great blog posts about fashion shows and my last outfits! ๐Ÿ™‚ Last Sunday, wow that is already a week ago (Time goes by way to fast…) I went to a lot of fashion shows at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Amsterdam! It was a busy busy day and I actually skipped one show since I was super tired and I also had to prepare and do some research about the designer and his previous career and collections for the show from Tony Cohen. Because I went to see this show for my course of Fashion Journalism, that’s why.ย 

At the end I went to three shows on Sunday and all these shows where just amazing! I think I can easily say that one of these shows is my favorite, I just don’t know which one haha.ย 

The fashion show from Dorhout Mees was a true spectacle, with a short film before the show started, amazing dresses and just the perfect background music. The whole ambiance during this show was lovely and I really liked the collection. After the show from Dorhout Mees I went to the show from Tony Cohen. Tony Cohen has a gorgeous and super sweet muse and I actually spoke to her after the show (again for my Fashion Journalism course and hopefully soon to be career). The fashion show was amazing as well, I loved the designs, the fabrics and the use of colors. Last but certainly not least I went to the fashion show from Winde Rienstra, a Frisian Dutchie who definitely has an eye for design. The gorgeous gowns, cork and coconut sky-high heels and a very intriguing Frisian singer as background music. Another show I loved!ย 

Check out the pictures I made after the read more button.ย Ciao!!

The show from Dorhout Mees, inspired by nature and wood. The first picture is actually a sort of screenshot I made with my camera from the short film.

MBFWA day 2, MaryMe-JimmyPaul

Hi guys! 

As you know by now I went to a lot of fashionshows during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Amsterdam and one of these shows was MaryMe-JimmyPaul. After a super colorful and almost hysterical fashionshow last season they now came to show the Dutch fashionscene their new A/W collection. The show was a little less hysterical with some more natural and easier to watch colors but it still was a fashion spectacle! 

Sneaker wedges, sporty tops, lots of different colors, faux fur, eskimo-like coats and a in my eyes eskimo-like backpack thingy… The looks were fun and playful but most of the items were still pretty wearable combined with simple basics. 

This seasons show element from the show was plastic and smoke (I think some of the models were carrying liqued nitrogen in their plastic bags…) well it just looked awesome! ๐Ÿ˜€ I really enjoyed the show and am also pretty happy and please with how my pictures turned out! All pictures used in this blogpost are mine… I would like to thank the designers for this amazing show and the lovely collection and of course I would also like to thank SO PR for the invitation! 

What do you think of this fun and playfull collection? Let me know in a comment ๐Ÿ™‚

xoxo Saranda

Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Amsterdam; day one

29-01-’14

bloggernet walk ohmaygod sarandipity saranda walgaard may bui fashion blog blogger amsterdam fashion week mbfwa

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
