Amsterdam Fashion Week day 5

Wednesday 23 July 2014

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!)

Monday 21 July 2014

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?

Amsterdam Fashion Week day 4

Thursday 17 July 2014

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.

Amsterdam Fashion Week day 2

Saturday 12 July 2014

Thursday Amsterdam Fashion Week begun, and as i already told you i was there as well to check the shows! At day 1 i didn't take a lot of good photos so here are only photos from day 2, when i met up with Manon. Tomorrow i will meet Yvet as well oeeeh i'm so excited!
My favorite show of day 2 must be by Maaike Fransen. It wasn't just a normal show but more some kind of performance act with amazing outfits (seen on photo 2). Maybe i'll make a special post later on with more photos of the show cause it was so good!

My version of overnight oats

Thursday 10 July 2014

Today i'm leaving for Amsterdam Fashion Week! A proper breakfast is very important these days, so i'd like to share mine with you.
First of all i'd like to say that i've been eating oatmeal as long as i can remember so i'm not just going along with the whole 'oatmeal hype' that's going on. I was quite happy with it though, cause the plain recipe kinda bored me and now there are so much more variations to try out! I started experimenting a bit with overnight oats and the recipe down below must be my favorite.
What do you think about oatmeal and the hype?

-60g oatmeal
-50ml water
-200ml milk
-2 tablespoons of goji berries
-1 tablespon of chia seeds
-half a banana

How to make it
Put the oatmeal, milk, water, goji berries and chia seeds in a bowl. Put some foil on top of it and place it in the fridge for a night. The morning after you can just add the banana and raspberries and you're ready to go!

We will go far into the sea

Next week it's time for Amsterdam Fashion Week again! This time i'm doing it a bit differently when it comes down to social media: i'll be curating the Unhemmed Instagram for a week and keep you updated there! I'll probably post some photos on my own account as well, but the main focus will be at Unhemmed.
And there's more fun news: i'm going to shoot street style photos for the magazine at Fashion Week! Curious what Unhemmed is about? You can check their latest issue here (come on, it's free!). And don't forget to follow their Instagram to see my updates!

Best kept secret photo diary

Friday 4 July 2014

I got my disposable camera from the Best Kept Secret festival developed, and couldn't wait to share them with you! I had the best time there, meeting all of these wonderful new people and seeing the most amazing bands.
My top 3 favorite artists must be Connan Mockasin, James Blake and Metronomy. Connan Mockasin was just one crazy experience (he kept yelling 'MEER KRUIMELS' which means more crumbs???) and James Blake was soooo good, the loud bass literally made my whole body shake. Metronomy definitely had the best decor on stage and it was so much fun to see them play in their matching suits! Aaah i wanna go again :D
