I'm just getting starting and happy about everyone who likes to connect:
The story about the look:
Lately I’ve been thinking about my “perfect outfit“ to wear for Fashion Week during summer. What message do I want to deliver by what I’m wearing? Thinking about questions like this, my mind came up with a quote by one of my favorite fashion icons, Candela Novembre: “For me clothes are sometimes my memories, sometimes my companions and sometimes my way of communicating”. Her words really relate to what fashion is for me. For me it is not something superficial, it’s a creative way to express even deep thoughts, feelings and stories. Memories: I remember every item I’ve ever bought. I remember how I first saw the item and the reason why I liked it the moment I saw it. That’s why all my clothes are somehow “companions”. There is my oversized grey sweater, that helps me getting through a stressful day, or killer heels, that always get me into a going-out mode! And when loosing a companion, it feels like saying goodbye to all the shared memories! And fashion is also a smart and creative art of “communication”. An outfit can say “I will have a first date today”, “I want to feel confident for a presentation” or simply “I love fashion and this is a reflection about my thoughts and feelings about fashion!”.
And that brings me to the perfect outfit for Fashion Week. Fashion Week means pure inspiration and creativity. Most outfits might be over the top , but the setting allows to be creative, to be free and to try something new – but still, something that expresses your personality and your own “style story”. Therefore, I was thinking about my own style story. I always feel very comfortable when wearing something warm, friendly, positive and sunny! For that reason, I decided on wearing extra wide and loose trousers with tropical print and a matching blouse that can be wrapped around the hips. The outfit also works without the blouse, showing my little cropped top with open back. I decided on adding a further trend to the tropical pieces and combined some strong yellow accessoires such as nude shoes with yellow heels and a statement collier! The yellow clutch even emphasizes the positive energy of the color saying “Non-stop summer – have fun”! :)
I hope that my summerly “comapanions” and I get the chance to create some new “memories” in Amsterdam – #FCfindyourlook :)
