FASHION / on wednesday we wear black

dress - persunmall                     jacket - oasap                  shoes - new look                ring- cos

Hii Guys!

Another outfit in front of this white garage wall! I think this is going to be my new favourite outfit spot. The only downside of this spot is the lightning. The light is different in almost every photograph, but that has also to do with the sun of course. Anyways, I don't feel like writing a story right now. Today has been a lazy day, so it's not like I have a lot to tell you anyway. 

Just a quick reminder that I have made an Instagram account, you can find it here @manonmargaretha

FASHION / black meets blue

blazer - vintage                      top - mango                 velvet leggings / necklace - oasap                shoes - new look

Hii Guys!

Whoever said that black and blue don't go together, was incredibly wrong. And I use this outfit as proof. I love how the blue blazer pops out when combined with an all black outfit. When my sister saw me wearing this, she asked if the blazer was new. Which it's not, but it does give you an idea of how little I wear this blazer. And then I thought, why? It's one of the best quality vintage pieces I've ever bought and still it's hiding in my closet most of the time. So, I decided that from now on I'm going to get all these hidden pieces out of the closet and give them what they deserve : a body that wears them! Making new outfits with old pieces of clothing can be a tough task, but when you succeed it feels amazing!

And guys I have some news, I finally made an Instagram account! I'm still new, so I would love to find some nice people to follow. You can find me here or search for @manonmargaretha!

PHOTOGRAPHY / disposables

Hii Guys!

Here they are finally, my disposables from Barcelona! I'm really happy with how they turned out and I've already begun with making a little scrapbook. I always think that disposables add an instant summer feeling to the photograph. But I have nothing more to say about Barcelona, since I've already told you about that a long time ago. Today I'm celebrating one of my best friends her birthday in the city.  It will probably include a lot of food haha. The rest of the weekend I'll be spending with Dylan.

Enjoy the weekend!

FASHION / time for something new

dress / bag - vintage               shoes - new look              ring - cos              sunglasses - unknown

Hii Guys!

I'm sorry for the lack of photos in this post, but I have a good reason. The weather here in The Netherlands has been extremely hot for a couple of days now, and it will be untill next week. And although I really like the summer, the heat does give me lots of headaches. And so it did today. I woke up just fine, but after lunch my head started pounding. Still, I didn't want to waste my whole day so I forced myself to go outside and take a few, quick outfit photos. The quality of the photos is also a bit poor, my camera is slowly giving up on me. I bought my beloved Sony Alpha 3 years ago so it's time I start looking for a replacement. This camera is a really good camera for inexperienced photographers, which I was at the time, but now I feel like I'm ready for something better!

Can anyone of you recommend a good SLR camera?

MBFWA / Monday : David Laport and Paul Schulten

1/2 - David Laport              3/4 - Paul Schulten

Hii Guys!

And we're down to the last Amsterdam Fashionweek related post already. In this last post I want to show you some photographs I took during the show of David Laport and Paul Schulten. But as you can see, this post contains a lot less photographs than the previous catwalk posts. That's because of two reasons. 1) I couldn't take proper photographs because my seats were more in the back than the other two days. 2) I simply didn't take that many photographs because I didn't like the collections that much! 

The collection by David Laport wasn't bad at all, he showed us some gorgeous dresses and skirts. But the collection as a whole just didn't make that much of an impression on me like other collections had in the days before. Of course this is completely personal. The last show of day, which was also the closing of Amsterdam Fashionweek, was by Paul Schulten. Unfortunately, I was deeply disappointed by his collection. There were only two dresses that really spoke to me, the ones you can see above. During the show I noticed that the front row was filled with 'older women', and they loved every single piece of the collection. The even applaused for every model that walked by them haha. So I guess Paul Schulten his collection was made for an older audience, which explains why I thought it was a bit oldfashioned haha!

From now on things will be back to normal, starting of with my disposables from Barcelona!

FASHION / Amsterdam Fashionweek outfit three

dress - asos                  jacket - zara                shoes - vintage              bag - oasap

Hii Guys!

Here is my last outfit from Amsterdam Fashionweek. On the last day, which was last Monday, I attended two shows with Eline and Cherelle. In between the shows we took some photo's of eachother and had dinner and an icecream somewhere in the city. It was a perfect ending of a perfect fashionweek. Next up will be my last post about Fashionweek. 

Today I'm going to Werfpop in Leiden with Dylan. We're going to see Chef'Special and Dope DOD, and probably eat a lot of churros and other festival food haha.
