The turquoise dress

november 2, 2012

Hi lovely people,

How are you doing today? Right now I’m in Groningen, a city in the Netherlands I’ve rarely visited.
A good friend of mine lives here so we decided to stay over for the night and discover the city by going out and doing some shopping! We are 5 crazy girls (‘the fantastic five’ :D) together and we’re having a good time no matter where we are and what we do. Love you all!

This outfit shoot is right in front of the university I attend. I haven’t told you guys yet what I do/study everyday. It’s not common and definitely not ‘fashionable’ but it’s the job I have always dreamed of :
becoming a fashionable dentist! After years of trying to get it (which took me 3 years..) I finally had
the chance to study what I’ve always wanted. Now I’m in my second year and still have 4 years to go!

This is also the reason why I sometimes cannot post everyday. It’s a full-time study and the pressure is high. That was also the reason I often hesitated whether to start with a fashionblog. But until now, I didn’t regret it for a second.

Now something about the outfit! To find the dress I’m wearing wasn’t a easy job. When I was in New York last winter, I saw this dress in the color red. It’s a perfect item to have since it’s a dress with a beautiful cutout in the back aaaaand it has sleeves! Don’t have to worry about wearing something above it. So I brought it back home with me. But: In an other Zara department I found this color! And I liked it much more than the red one. Unfortunately they didn’t have my size. What could I do? Our next mission (me and the bf) was to go to all the Zara departments in the search of this dress. It seems crazy but it became a game. My bf was even more motivated to find the dress in my size. You won’t believe it but in the LAST Zara there it was: the dress in this color in my size. I couldn’t be happier, or my bf who had won the game:D

Aaaand now something about the hair!!! Do you like the bow bun? I felt like minnie mouse!:D It’s so so easy to make one yourself and it’s so cute! Search for a tutorial on youtube, you will find many!

Have a lovely friday!

Love, Farah
