Diary || Today

december 30, 2012
 

Today I had an appointment with Maarten Schröder, a great photographer! He makes the most beautiful portraits I’ve ever seen. It’s almost art. I was so happy when he asked me to be a model for a portrait photo with the classy red hat (see the outfit with the hat here). My dear friend Hoomay was so sweet to do the make-up and hair.  Loved the result! This was just before I went out, wearing a cozy vest in my little place. Will show you the portrait soon! I’m really curious myself as well!
 
You can check out his work at www.maartenschroder.com! Thank you for giving me this opportunity!

Fashion show || Addy van den Krommenacker

december 29, 2012

Ph// AnnisaGM

Oh my, can you imagine me being stunned and amazed by this fashion show which only featured dresses, and not just ‘dresses’ but too good to be true dresses?! Unfortunately, I can’t really afford these dresses (now/ever)…but they definitely are some high fashion inspiration!

Addy van den Krommenacker: you’ve blown me away.

P.S. There might be a picture overload…sorry for that…It’s not what you are used to with me, but I just couldn’t choose! Though the last one is definitely my favorite!
Have a lovely Sunday..the last Sunday of the year!

Love, Farah

december 27, 2012

ph // AnnisaGM

Two weeks ago, I went to the Fashion Bash at Masters of LXRY (used to be the MiljonairsFair). It was a fair about luxury, hence the outfit:

The perfect moment to….
     be overdressed without feeling overdressed 🙂
The perfect first time to….
     wear my new Vanilia dress I bought at the sample sale about one month ago!
The perfect outfit to….
     post during this time of the year.

And last but not least: chic and classy – two of my fashion keywords.

Pictures of the event will follow with beautiful dresses of the fashionshow of Addy van den Krommenacker!

What I’m wearing
Maxi dress: Vanilia €30
Shoes: Primark: £7
Bag: Zara €40

Something new

december 26, 2012

Tell me, have you been spoiled or spoiled for Christmas? These aren’t my Christmas presents, but new things in my closet which is bulging already! If I told you the prices, you wouldn’t be able to resist them either.
The scarf, thatI got as a present, was on my wishlist! Lucky me!
The white clutch is from Nelly.com. A while ago I got a discount code of 10 euros. This bag was on sale for 10,95. Calculating the price is not that difficult…just 0,95 cents! Again, lucky me!
The heels are from Primark, on sale for just 7 euros. One of my friends actually bought them for me since she saw ‘Farah’ in those heels!:D I love my friends! They can even shop for me!
Enjoy your Christmas dinner tonight! And I hope that you’ll be spoiled with beautiful gifts!
Love, Farah

Stolen..

december 23, 2012

What started as a great weekend..ended in a terrible one..:( I’ve been robbed from many items..such as my iPhone, cash, shoes..and this beautiful bag I just got from my mother-inlaw which was handmade and meant a lot to me. I just cannot believe this happened and I’m so disappointed in the human being right now.
I’m just flabbergasted. 
If you know someone who sells his/her iPhone 4 please let me know!
Hope this will never happen to one of you!
Love, Farah

Outfit || Sweater KOI Aztec

december 21, 2012

Ph// AnnisaGM

Hi lovelies!

I’m back again! It has been a hectic and stressful week. Sometimes you just need to focus on other things in life, in my case it was my studies last week. Some of you probably already know that I study dentistry. Not something you would expect right? Looking at people’s mouths everyday… But, luckily it’s not only that: it’s all about making people happy with a beautiful smile!
The holidays have begun, can’t wait to spend some quality time with my family and celebrating Christmas and New Year’s. It’s such a lovely time of the year (except for the cold of course..not my cup of tea 😉 ). Tonight, I will celebrate Christmas with 4 of my besties! Having diner, giving each other presents and going out. The good things in life: friends and family, the ones who you have to cherish.
Now something about the outfit! The sweater I’m wearing is from www.kenzaa.nl and I’m actually the model on the site! You can order the sweater right here!
Love, Farah

P.S.: Have you already joined my Victoria’s Secret giveaway?
What I’m wearing:
Sweater: Kenzaa €25
Jeans: Vanilia €30
Boots: Zara €90

Outfit watisdetrend.nl || Preppy floral

december 16, 2012


Hi lovely people!

Are you enjoying your sunday? Well, I would love to fill it in with shopping at the C4C Vintage Market in Amsterdam! If you love vintage, make sure you visit this hugeeee sale where you pay just 15 euro for 1 kilo of vintage clothing! That’s a great deal right?!
Unfortunately I have a huge exam this week and I’m being very wise by not going..and spend some time reading my books. Sometimes you just  have to sacrifice.

For now, a new outfit on watisdetrend.nl! Preppy floral it is with a beautiful blazer of the webshop www.kenzaa.nl!

Voor de nederlanders onder ons:

Outfit || Kenzaa.nl

december 16, 2012

Those of you who follow me on Instagram (@Formulafarah) must have seen the HUGE package I got delivered last Friday… Packages always make me smile. It’s like unwrapping a gift. The feeling of not knowing what’s inside gives me happy tingles ;). You must remember this from your childhood..or from the present! There’s still a little kid inside of us isn’t there? 🙂 🙂

I’m happy to announce that I’ve teamed up with the webshop Kenzaa (click here). A webshop for the petite sizes. They have lovely items, you should really check out their website! Aaaand ofcourse, see the proof on myself! :p The color and the shape of this sweater, they’re beautiful! Combined with leather pants and of course some matchy red lips, I was ready to rock the day!

Outfit || High waisted denim

december 11, 2012

Hi lovelies!
How was the weekend? Like I said before, I went to the Fashionbash and saw an amaaaaazing fashion show of Addy van den Krommenacker.
But, the weekend is over..and we’re back to business again which means studying and studying. Exams are coming again, does this sound familiar to you? December should be a month of joy..not totally the truth if you’re studying at a university. For all the students in the whole world it’s an month full of deadlines, exams and so on: the end of the first semester. But we students will kick some ass right?! And pass all the exams for a good start of 2013!
Ok. Enough about school, studying, homework. Let’s take about something more fun: fashion! The F of fun and the F of Fashion:)!
Or more precisely: High waisted denim. This will probably horrify the bf (or more people:p)
but I actually gave it a try and I actually like it! I’m more a woman of dresses and it’s always
a difficult to find a perfect pair of jeans. Do you feel the same?
Two weeks ago I went to the sample sale of the brand Vanilia ( do you know about this brand? I love it! Check out some of there pieces on their website: www.vanilia.com.)
Well, it’s a quite expensive brand but this sample sale was everything except expensive! So, it was the perfect time to choose for a perfect pair..of high waisted jeans!
What’s your opinion about these high waisted jeans or high waisted jeans in general?
Love, Farah

What I’m wearing
Jeans: Vanilia 30
Jumper: Zara 12
Blazer: Mango 40
Shoes: Nelly: 13
Necklace: Forever 21 7
Ring: gift from my nr 1 fan;)!

Portugal recap || Outfit 3

december 2, 2012

On holidays, I always change outfits twice a day. Strange or normal? I think it’s quite normal cause holidays stand for fun and party! The chill outfits during the day do not have the it factor of a party look you have to have every single night..:D Today and tomorrow, I will show you my outfits for the night!
Today, I’m picking up the bf who’s finally coming home again after a 6 weeks stay in New York City! Although he had a great time, I cannot lie that I’m reallyyyy glad he’s back again!
PS: New York gave me the opportunity to buy these shiny glitter heels of Steve Madden just for 30 dollars! They are not comfy at all but they are a perfect accessory in my room!
What I’m wearing:
Asymmetrical dress: H&M €20
Shoes: Steve Madden $30
Bag: Zara €40
