    AFW | UNTIL NEXT TIME

    SHOES, BLAZER AND VELVET SHORT ZARA TOP MANGO NECKLACE H&M WATCH MICHAEL KORS

    Can't believe how fast time flies! We made these photos at the last day of the Amsterdam Fashion Week at the Park Plaza Victoria Hotel where we stayed during our journey. A beautiful four star hotel located in the heart of Amsterdam and just a minute walk from the central station! How perfect is that since we were carrying each 2 suitcases with us. With a bunch of cabs parked before the hotel and all shops and restaurants right around the corner we've never travelled far to reach our destination. We stayed at the most comfortable suite I've ever experienced so far in the so called 'Urban Wing'. The rooms are modern decorated with a sleek design and the floor was all covered with red carpet which made me feel like a celebrity for a while, haha! Furthermore the hotel offers all kinds of services like a indoor pool, a sauna, a gym and a huge delicious breakfast buffet see here! The staff was also very kind and always open to do a little chitchat :)

    Over all, we had the most enjoyable stay as you can read and we're definitely coming back again! Thank you Victoria!

    AFW | CLAES IVERSEN

    CLAES IVERSEN BACKSTAGE F/W 2014

    Magnificent, there's no need to say more about it. Though it was a small collection every single piece was perfectly beautiful in its own way. Nudes, black and white were the main colors of the collection with sometimes a pop of red or turquoise. My favorites were absolutely the red skirt and the black evening dress (see picture below!) Claes always succeeds to impress all of us every season again. I'm looking forward to see his next show already!

    AFW | POWER OF LEATHER

    SKIRT MARIANNE VANDERWILT TOP & SHOES ZARA WATCH DANIEL WELLINGTON HAT V&D

    I've never did leather on leather before but my new skirt from Marianna Van der Wilt just goes with every garment. To spice up the minimal look a little bit I added my emerald green amulet necklace to this outfit and viola! The skirt is made from such a fine leather that it gives you a very soft look. What do you think?

    We went to Spijkers&Spijkers and Claes Iversen yesterday and both their shows were incredible! I'm such a big fan of Claes and it was so cool to watch his show front row instead of on the internet, absolutely the highlight of the week so far :) I actually have so many things to tell you guys that I don't know where to start lol! I think we're going to make a photo diary or so, because a picture tells more than a thousand words so they say!

    AFW | iNDiViDUALS

    AFW INDIVIDUALS RUNWAY FINALE F/W 2013

    Uptown program has started and I was so excited because this is our first fashion week experience ever! Here is a small recap of what happend yesterday. The opening show was by 'iNDiViDUALS' made possible by a group of creative young masterminds from the Amsterdam Fashion Institute. It felt like I was straight in a science fiction movie with everybody wearing these gladiator look-a-likes headpieces, how incredibly awesome! Two of my favorite genres in one, couldn't ask for more ;) We've made so many pictures that I have no idea where to start, so here is a selection of a few top pieces in my opinion! Thanks again to Fashiolista and AFW for giving us this opportunity, my team and I couldn't be more grateful!

    Stick around for more fashion week snaps! (and follow me on INSTAGRAM!)

    THE ARTROOM

    Jessica Ricks (12/2012)

    Happy new year everyone! Let me introduce you a new category on my blog: The Artroom! For those who have been wondering why I'm calling myself a drawing artist.. well, this is actually why! I've been drawing and painting since I could hold a pencil and developed myself during the years from drawing manga figures to real photo-look-a-like portraits. I sign my work with 'Thu Ha Nguyen Thi' instead of Levi because that's my original birth name. This category will basically contain all forms of creative things such as; DIY, interior design, paintings, inspirational pictures or whatever you can name. Here above my newest drawing from dazzling blogger Jessica Ricks from Hapatime! Hope you all enjoy this, let me now what you think!

    “Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time”
