Fall has begun

Unfortunately, the first fall-rain droped down today. I wanted to ignore that and put my short sleeve shirt on anyway. Hooray for layering. I went to school today but they weren't that enthusiastic about my work, what was a big bummer for me because I liked it.

Still have to figure out how to make nice pictures because it doesn't really work at my tiny room. I'm not that fond of the zipper-trend. I think it can do a bad thing for your look really easily. But I really like this zipped skirt from H&M, it is the colour and the fabric I like most about it.

Interrail 2009: Lake Balaton

It is a while ago that I wrote something about our trip this summer. I thought it is about time now I continue!

After Budapest, we went to lake Balaton to cool down. It was a nice lake, but too bad there were so many tourists! There were a lot of expensive snackbars and everything was made for the tourists. We stayed at a very nice hostel. They told us where to go and where we would find the nice places. We rented mountainbikes for one day wich was a lot of fun! Didn't make that many pictures because we layed at the 'beach' most of the time.

Just relaxing

I love to lay in bed - wearing my old, comfi, stockings - with my macbook and search around the web. Just checking the new posts of my favourite French blogger Alix or reading an issue of Spilled Milk. What do you like to do on when you have the afternoon off?

Emotion poster

This is the poster I made for the Emotion poster assignment! I think the endresult is pretty nice, but I definitely have some improvements. I love to hear what you think about it! Which emotion do you get from each picture (the upperleft double picture can be count as one) and where do you think improvement is needed?

(I passed this assignment at school!)

Travel with the Time Machine

As I am still lying on the couch with a fever I won't post any photos of myself (although my pajamas has the cutest polkadots). I want to share with you this nice store in Amsterdam: Time Machine.

You can find here a lot beautiful vintage shoes! Boots, pumps, sneakers and more. You can also find here some jackets but I think the shoes are much better! They have shoes for woman and men.

I made these photos for www.shopgids.nl, where I did my internship

Fit and buy

Unfortunatly, I got the flu. Which I really hate because not only I'm sitting at home with a huge headache, I also miss a lot at school today grmb...

These are some pictures I made last week. I'm not really fond of the store River Island but I saw some nice things there. Like a sweet blue, polkadot blouse and a floral dress. Even though, I didn't buy anything. I did find a nice shirt from American Apparel which I couldn't resist! The fabric feels great and it fits very nice. I love that brand!

Preppy fall look

It was a bit chilly today so I pulled my sweater out of the closet. I had my last feedback today for the emotion poster, wich I have to deliver tomorrow, and it was the first good feedback I got! I felt really good about it because I had a lot trouble the last week with my fascination. Well, more about that later, here is my outfit!

Eat the best apple pie here!

I'll be on time now

I bought my agenda for next year today! I went to the American Bookstore at Spui (amazing bookstore, you should really take a look when you're in the neighbourhood, plus you get student discount) and bought a Moleskine Weekly Notebook. I think all Moleskine notebooks are the best. I have my sketchbook, which I take everywhere I go. I also bought one as a travel diary for summervacation.

Fashion fascination

I picked my fascination! So I don't really have a fascination for something, more a lot of interest. But I do have a huge love for ballet. I dance since I'm a little girl, first classical but now modern dance, so I thought I could do something with that. I ended up with ribbons, what became my 'fascination'.

We have to make an 'Emotion poster' of our fascination. So I search on the internet for some inspiration and made some testphoto's this morning. They told me at school that I had to let go of the sweet, romantic ballet world and look beyond it. It's kind of hard for me but I'll try. I hope they like my things tomorrow...

Here are some testphotos I took this morning

I like ruffles

Still have to figure out my fashion fascination... took a break to make some pictures of my outfit today. I don't wear this top a lot but I love the ruffles! It's the last day this week with good weather so I tought this would be a perfect day to pull this beauty out of my closet.

A simple day to school

I only had one class today, a lot more relaxing then last week! It was about a 'fashion fascination' we have to choose to work on for the next few weeks. I have to do a shoot this week where I dipict 5 emotions to my fascination... Have to figure out first what I am going to use for a fascination! Do you have any ideas?

This is what I wore today. I'm not really that enthusiastic about it though. I wore my Matthew Wiliamsson dress with a H&M trend skirt. I recieved my flats from new look! This is one of the two pair I ordered. I think they are pretty cute. This weekend I went out to look for a jacket, couldn't find it.. but I did bought this leather bag (in sale! yeay).

Nice print at H&M

I think this dress has a lovely print. I like the green and yellow combined. I think it looks very romantic and sweet. Didn't bought it anyway. After the vacation I have to watch my spendings really carefully!
