Amsterdam Fashion Week day 5

First of all i want to thank every one of you for the sweet comments on my last post! They really really made my week! I'm so happy to hear that you like the name fashion roulette that much, and thanks a lot for all the advice and feedback!

Second of all: enjoy my last catwalk photos from Amsterdam Fashion Week! These ones were taken on the last day, when i visited 4 shows with Cherelle and Manon. Unfortunately i wasn't able to take a lot of good photos, but i must say i didn't like the shows that much as well. I absolutely LOVED the show from Maison the Faux, where they even transformed the whole venue into a garden, (including a pond with fountains and gardeners!) and David Laport's show with some really interesting pieces. The opening and final show of the day on the other hand, weren't that good at all. MLY kinda looked to me like a collection for boring housewives with their pencil skirts and undefinable patterns while Paul Schulten just wasn't impressing. Of course they both had some interesting items (for MLY the accessories and for Paul Schulten a sequin skirt with a world map on it), but in general it was quite a bummer.
BUT i have to say i did really enjoy being there! I'm very grateful i had the opportunity to visit all these shows at Fashion Week and i actually feel kinda spoiled to even have that much comparisons. All in all it was one crazy week full of experiences and amazing people, and i definitely hope to be there again next winter!

Afw outfit (+important announcement!)

I think it comes as a big surprise for most of you that i changed my blogger name all of a sudden (+bought a domain). But the truth is i wasn't happy with if you find style for such a long time. I chose this name when i started blogging a couple of years ago, having no idea that i would keep it up for so long and that blogging would become such an important port of my life.
For a long time i doubted what a good blog name would be, and came up with fashion roulette. Why? I wanted the name to be fashion related, but since i'm not only posting outfit photos but all the things that are involved with fashion, it shouldn't be too specific in my opinion. Roulette stands for a variety of fashion related subjects and fashion for, well obviously, fashion.
The blog lay-out will change the upcoming weeks as well, and maybe a bit of the content. Do you have any sort of posts (outfits, new designers, videos, personal diaries, etc) that you would like to see more often? Or do you have any tips/changes you would like to see on my 'new' blog?

Ps. All the emails send to ifyoufindstyle@hotmail.nl will be redirected to my new address: fashion-roulette@hotmail.com

Amsterdam Fashion Week day 4

To get my rest i skipped day 3 of Fashion Week, and strolled around the city. This gave me some more energy for day 4 which definitely was my favorite one! I met up with Yvet, Wendy and Manon again to see 5 shows. I even sat front row (!!!), met great other bloggers and especially enjoyed the shows from Zyanya Keizer and Tony Cohen.
