European Fashion Business School TMO

5 minutes mood board.

Today I went to European Fashion Business School TMO in Doorn.
I think I want to study fashion management over there, but I still can't choose between TMO and AMFI Amsterdam cause both have there advantages.
During the day we've had two presentations and four lessons and all of it was very instructive.
One of the lessons was a kind of visual merchandising, there we had to create a mood board in 5 minutes (you can see the result above).
The other lessons were about marketing, business economics and product knowledge.
Product knowledge was much fun, you'll learn about all kind of fabrics and what makes a product a good one.
Did you know the new dutch football shirt is made of 19 plastic bottles?!

Love, Amy.

Here you can see the march lookbook from Zara.
the tough styling inspired me, I really like the white jumpsuit en all the studded items, in particular the studded clutch. the wet hair look is an other thing I am definitely gonna try.
Can't wait to get my hands on all this stunning items!

tomorrow i'm off to Austria, that's why you haven't seen more outfit post yet. I'll try to shoot as many as possible when there.
I'm hoping my boyfriend brings his Macbook so I can do some updates. 

Get inspired.

TREND REPORT: The knee length skirt.

1. Sonia Rykiel campaign
2. Acne s/s'12 fashion show
3. Dolce and Gabbana s/s '12 fashion show
4. Jil Sander s/s fashion show
5. Louis vuitton s/s '12 fashion show
6. Prada s/s '12 video campaign

It's gonna be a summer full of skirts, knee length skirts.
Boring? No, there are more then a thousand ways to wear them. You will mostly see this length in two different ways, like a pencil skirt or like a pleated skirt. A pleated skirt is perfect to wear casual, you can combine it a simple white tee or a over sized blouse. the pencil skirt can be very business like, but I prefer to wear it a bit rock and roll. For example with a black leather biker jacket and a cropped tee or just with a cropped jumper. (see Prada and Dolce and Gabbana for more inspiration.)
Don't be afraid to wear it.

Love, Amy.

Acne boots.

Once I saw those ankle boots one thing was for sure, Acne is making the most gorgeous ankle boots in the whole word.

“Fashion is the best form of self-expression. We like to design pieces that together form the coolest wardrobe, but is ultimately wearable. It becomes one way of thinking as individual pieces, but together creates a strong, modern and considered statement.”
Jonny Johansson, Acne’s Creative Director.

1. Ice skating on the Amsterdam canals.
2. Tenue de Nimes bag and my new jeans.
3. My high waisted Acne jeans.

Saturday I went to amsterdam to do some shopping.
The weather was great, the sun was shining and it wasn't too cold. I really like shopping in de negen straatjes and the jordaan, here you find the most beautiful shops and cutest restaurants.
I'm off to Austria next week, so I definitely needed a new pair of jeans. for the first time I went to Tenue de Nimes (Elandsgracht 60 Amsterdam), the best denim shop I've seen until now. I thought it was time for something different in my wardrobe, and choose a high(!) waisted Acne jeans. Outfit pictures with this new jeans will follow soon.

Love, Amy.

white and blue.

blazer: H&M
top: America today
jeans: MET jeans
shoes: Nike air
belt: vintage
bangle + rings: Calvin Klein
watch: Michael Kors
nail polish: Chanel VENDETTA.

this is my first outfitpost, and I hope you like it.
I wanted to shoot the pictures outside, but that was impossible today..
Almost a year ago I bought this pink neon Nikes in Mexico. I used to hate Nike air and Nike air max but I couldn't resist these. I fell in love with the color almost immediately and when I tried them on, I wouldn't pull them off anymore.
The Calvin Klein jewelry is so great. I like the simplicity and you can match it with everything in your wardrobe. 

Love, Amy.

spring/summer campaings 2012

These pictures are my favorite spring/summer campaigns for 2012.
I love the strong woman in Chanel, Versace, Guiseppe Zanotti and Dolce and Gabanna.
Mulberry, Louis Vuitton and Prada are showing something completely different, ice cream and cotton candy colors, the new pastels. you can already feel de summer by just looking at those photographs.
Another thing you see at Hermes, Dolce and Gabanna, miu miu and Givenchy are the Power Prints. Do you dare wearing it?

By seeing all these cheerful campaigns, I think it's almost impossible to wait for spring.

Love, Amy.
