BEACH-WALK IN BLACK&GOLD

Today I finally got home from my holiday, I left the island of Lanzarote this morning (very early), and when I landed on Schiphol I was happy I'm connected to the world of internet again! So I can update my blog, and share my outfit-of-the-day pictures with you.
This is the dress I got from TopShop while I was visiting my Swedish friends Josefin and ├ůsa in London, November last year. And when you're living in the Netherlands, there's not so much opportunity to wear this kind of dress, because of the shitty summer weather. So during my holiday in Lanzarote (Spain) I had to wear this beauty, and had a little beach-walk in it. Because of the wind the back of the dress was blowing in the air and had such a charming look, don't you think? I combined it with my new shoes I bought at a Spanish clothing store called Blanco, these are black leather sandals with high heels and when I saw them I had to buy them (of course). You likey?

SHOPPING IN SPAIN, LAZAROTE


Sorry I hadn't updated by blog so much during my holiday, the wireless internet sucks big time here. Today I had a little off-day, so I decided I didn't go to the beach and watch some Sex & the City episodes in bed instead. After a while I was so inspired by Carrie's style and wardrobe, I needed to go shopping. So I grabbed a cap and took my lazy butt to the city. There was a major sale going on, that's perfect because I was in that kind of mood to shop a lot, if you know what I mean. First stop was Zara, I got an amazing cute salmon pink dress for only 12 euro's! After a while my feet were killing me, now I finally understand why they call high heels 'killer-heels', so I had to buy flats or slippers. Then I walked in a sort of hipster store called 'Blanco' and saw these cute slippers, with a touch of hippie ;-) matched perfectly by my bag I bought earlier at Zara for 9 euro, but you're gonna see those items later on my blog, because it takes ages to upload a picture here.
 After I had a iced latte, I decided to walk back to the apartment just to clear my head and think about all the things I want to do with my life.

my pretty new dress from Zara, you likey?

FLYING FRIENDLY TO LANZAROTE


From sunny Lanzarote, a brand new blogpost! This was the outfit I was wearing during the flight from Amsterdam to Lanzarote; a vintage hat from Episode (a vintage store in Amsterdam) with a dress I ordered a couple years ago at Asos.com with a gilet from the New Yorker. Completed by a pair of trousers from the Zara and shoes from the Primark. I fell in love with Lanzarote, the weather is perfect. It's sunny with a lot of wind, so it's not too warm. But I get a tan anyway! The only thing I don't like it's that there too many tourists, who are just the wrong clotting, as usual ;-) well, while I'm enjoying my holiday, I wish you the same: sunny weather! Enjoy xoxo Alyssa

WINING AND DINING IN ROTTERDAM

Yesterday I had a wine-date with my friend Maaike from the dance academy. It was a nice summer day, perfect for a little shopping-trip, terrace-time with a lot of talking and of course having some wine. What a lovely day, for a moment it felt like we were in school again; bringing up memories and gossip. The only thing we were missing were the delicious tosti's from Anvers, but all by all it was such a nice day. Check out my vacation-look: I'm wearing a white/green ombre-blazer, with a basic top from H&M combined with one of my favorite items at the moment the short/skirt from Zara. To complete my outfit I choose to wear these colorful shoes which I got years ago at the New Look, and a classy clutch. What do you think about this look?

PACKING MY SUITCASE FOR MY VACANTION

Sunday morning, very early (around 5 o'clock!!) I'm leaving the Netherlands for a week, to have a nice vacation at Lanzarote! But first we stay a night at the Mercure Hotel at Schiphol Airport, Amsterdam.
And as usual I planned everyday before I leave, so I have to pack my suitcase now already. But, that's no problem for me, because I love it. It's easy girls, just make (new) outfits you want to wear and add some extra tops and shorts/skirts so you can combine other things to create new looks! Told you, piece of cake ;-) Look, I have plenty space enough, for my shoes of course! And... for all the things I want to buy in Spain.


I'm excited, I've made so many new Outfit's with 'old' clothing, because I'm very inspired by Sex&the'City lately. Just love the Carrie-look, styled by Pat Fields - it's just stunning! So when I don't know what to wear, I google Carrie Bradshaw and create a new look. Just wait and see, I'll put it on my blog during my holiday, don't worry.
For now I've got to pack my last things! Sleepwell dear fashionista's xoxo A.

MULTI-COLORED BLAZER 'BY FABRIO'

When I walked through the '9 straatjes' in Amsterdam I ran into this cute little store called 'By Fabrio', they sell really nice clothing for nothing more than €29,95. Perfect, don't you agree? When I took a look at their collection I found this amazing multi-colored blazer, and I instantly fell in love with it. I had to buy it, otherwise I would never forgive myself ;-) so.. I got it, and I'm so happy with it. It's the perfect little jacket for the summer, because of all these nice colors you get immediately happy! I combined it with my 'the New Icons' shirt for H&M and these fringe shorts (also H&M). Together with my Jimmy Choo's it's the perfect outfit, don't you think? At the moment it's one of my favorite outfits of the day. Meanwhile I'm enjoying Amsterdam the fullest, still looking for a place to live here in the city but I can't wait to start with my new education at the Vogue Academy and make beautiful creative things! For now, enjoy these lovely summer days, before you know it it's over ;-) with love xoxo

SUMMER HOLIDAY @ AMSTERDAM


Once again, a blogpost from inspiring Amsterdam. Today with Malou who is very creative with nail-polish, as you can see here. We were talking about how much we enjoyed the holiday, finally it's summer in the Netherlands and it's lovely. So it's the perfect opportunity to dress up, and walk all fabulous through the streets in Amsterdam and relax. We didn't do that much, just sitting in the sun by the canals with some food and drinks, but our chill-day was worth a update on my blog ;-) enjoy your day! xoxo Alyssa

ON THE EDGE OF GLORY

This is one of the last 'outfit of the day' pictures I had made in Tilburg. This dress is so difficult to wear, because of the 'open' mesh parts on the stomach. It can look slutty very easy, if you know what I mean. I bought this one because it was an challenge for me to combine it with something else so it's more wearable. This dress reminded me also of the collection of designer Alexander Wang. I combined this dress with one of my favorite items at the moment, the oversized blazer with printed sleeves from Forever21, as you can see on the pictures below it's more classy now. I got the dress at a store in Singapore called Depression, which only sold black and white clothing - for me as a Cruella De Vil maniac it was heaven! The blazer was also bought in Singapore, one big shopping paradise! I really want to go back, o boy I wish I had all the money on the world so I could spend it there ;-) What do you think of my 'Edge of Glory' look? xoxo

TUTU-CHIC

After a couple amazing days at Terschelling I returned today in Amsterdam. I was so excited about everything, I wanted to wear my 'customized' tutu. A couple years ago I bought a white see-through petticoat in a Vintage store, and made a sort of tutu skirt out of it. Just like Carrie in Sex and the City. I already posted it a while ago, you can check this outfit here. But this time I combined my favorite Tutu-skirt with an denim blouse and a black-and-white striped shirt. To complete this look I'm wearing the Jimmy Choo's heels from H&M. What do you think? You limey? xoxo

CRUELLA DE VILL TROUSERS

As you may know, I love Cruealla de Vill. Black and white is one of the best color combinations if you ask me, it's so chique and it gives you a whole other attitude. I thought it would be nice to make some black and white trousers. But there was one problem, I didn't know how to make because I never used a sewing machine. So, this little miss smartypants bought two pairs of pants (black and white) at the H&M, and took them in pieces. With some help from my mom I made my own black and white trousers. I'm so happy with the result!
I combined my new pants with some happy colors, like yellow and red. Let the sunshine come, becaue I'm ready for the summer!! What do you think? Let me know xoxo
