Hi lovelies!

 

Hope you’re having a great relaxing chilling Sunday! These last couple of weeks were hectic. I had multiple exams and my multitasking skills were put to the test! I did my best and I cannot complain about the results until now. And finally, this weekend came along and I have been looking forward to it. Planned lots of fun things with my friends. Yesterday I danced the night away at Jingle Balls and today I’m meeting a friend from Paris and we’re going to dance some salsaaa! Sooooo, are you prepared for the upcoming Christmas days? What are your plans? Is your Christmas outfit complete already? Continue Reading…

NEW IN || INVITO Ankle Boots

december 11, 2014

invito-shoes1-lrg

 

Give a woman a pair of comfortable and pretty heeled shoes, and she can conquer all the streets in the world :D. Those who live in Amsterdam know that it can be a burden to walk in heels. There are so many streets that are horrible to walk on. But women who are dedicated to their heels know how to find a solution for this problem. And yes, the solution is wearing heels that are totally wrapped around your ankles (which gives your feet support) combined with a block heel. Et voilá, c’est tout!

I found these pretty suede ankle boots at Invito. The rose golden zipper at the back gives it a special touch for the upcoming holidays! Tomorrow, I will show you my entire look with these boots combined with some sparkles and a cool feature!

Choose for these shoes and find them HERE!

Love, F.

Shopping || Designer Outlet Roermond

november 22, 2014

designeroutletroermond-6

Hi dearies!

Last Wednesday, I went to the Designer Outlet Roermond for the very first time and I was as excited as a little kid.  A shopping paradise where you can shop designer products  for 30-70% less than their normal store prices. I was one of the lucky bloggers who got invited for a day of  ‘gift-hunting’. I didn’t have to think twice before saying yes!

Back in the days, I loved the days when I went gift shopping together with my mom. Not only for Christmas, as we didn’t really celebrate that, but also for all other occasions. What I want to say is that I get warm feelings when I go gift shopping. Especially knowing that you will make your loved ones very happy.

Hi lovelies!
I already showed you a sneak peek of my new leather Converse! So happy with them! Especially since they are very hard to find in the Netherlands. So I asked the boyfriend to bring them for me from New York!

Inspiration || You Sock

juni 25, 2014

Hi lovelies!
 
A well-known problem to all women worldwide: your partner’s sock drawer that exists of pairs that are randomly put together and just do not match. Does this sound familiar to you? And does this bother you? Well…it shouldn’t! It’s cool to mix and combine socks, it really is! BUT, then again, you
have socks and socks. The socks themselves have to be cool right?! So let me introduce you to You Sock by Jarvis Pursuit.

NEW IN || Gold Gladiators

juni 11, 2014
Hi lovelies,
When it comes to new shoes, I love to take details shots of them. Especially when they have so many details. I still didn’t own a pair of gladiator heels and these ones with golden heels stole my feet! 🙂

Details || Golden Soles

mei 7, 2014

Hi lovelies!
How are you doing today? I’m recovering from yesterday’s fun! First, I went to Unlimited PR’s event, where we got a presentation by the sweetest Yara of Chapter Friday (you must know her from ‘This Chick’s Got Style’!). After that, I went to a pop up store of the brand Ani Ani and they just have the most beautiful beachwear. I’ve chosen a very pretty one! Will show you more on the blog soon! 🙂 Well, then I went for a Persian dinner with my love and my day ended by laughing my ass off with comedian Maz Jobrani! And I saw a lot of people I haven’t seen in ages which was so nice! It was a busy and a lovely day! 
Today, I wanted to give you a closer look of these new pair of shoes, which are my favorites at the moment! It’s difficult to show you the pretty details on outfit photos and this pair of shoes just deserve a bit more attention! The golden soles makes them so special en do you also see the golden details on the heels? Very handy since the white part of the heels is more protected that way! (We all know how annoying it is that we get stuck with these heels so often!)
Well..those who know the brand Ted Baker know that they always pay attention to the little details. I love them! They are also available in two other colors (here).
Let me know what you think about the golden soles!
Love, Farah

Hi lovelies!
How’s your week been? I had some crazy days! First, I had my first presentation for my new studies (aaah I was so nervous!) so I was very busy preparing it! But it went well yesterday!
After college, I was invited to the Blue Ridge Denim Event at WE! More about that later!
For now, I wanted to show you some new and very cute jewellery and hair accessories of Jade Juwelen. The special thing is, they are made by hand, which makes every one of them unique. These are the perfect accessories for the coming spring season. Easy to wear, very subtle and cute! You all know I love to keep it very simple with regards to accessories. Jade Juwelen is made for me!
 
Tomorrow, I will show you the third and last look with the baby blue pants. Guess what how I will accessorize my look ;).
Love, Farah

Outfit || Straight to the Point

februari 23, 2014

Hi lovelies!
It’s Monday! Not the most favorite day of the week, but we can make the most out of it right?! Today, it’s my mommy’s birthday! To spoil her, I’ve planned a day out with her! I worked hard during the weekend to take a day off on Monday. The other way around huh ;).
Let’s talk fashion! Last week, I shot this look and filmed the shoot for a special video! Can’t tell you anything about it yet, but hopefully I can share it soon! Very excited!
To be honest, I don’t like seeing myself in a video. I’ve had that since I was a little kid. It’s so strange to see yourself walking, moving, talking. Haha, never gotten used to it and always avoided the camera when someone was recording. However, I have to step out of my comfort zone and try to rock everything! Staying positive!
Now something else! I need your advice! I’m in search for new pointy black pumps! These ones have have passed their heyday and it’s time for a new classy pair! Btw, my heels even got stuck in that grid on the dock so that has to mean something right? 😉
After some web searching I found two pairs  on the Manfield webshop (shoe-heaven when you’re looking for a beautiful good quality classy pair!) that I really like! These are even on sale,  but I can’t choose between them!
Which one do you think I should get? The smooth one (nr 1) or the textured one (nr 2) ? Thank you in advance! I really appreciate it because I’m in complete doubt!
Please let me know!
Love,
Farah

Shopping || Mango

Yesterday was the so called blue Monday. I felt it as well! So I myself an appointment for a session of retail therapy. It always makes me feel better and there is no better way to get a lot of inspiration! I have a lot of important exams coming up so every little prayer by you guys will help me! Fingers crossed..
Have you already checked out the Mango sale online?

Outfit || Black in Converse

januari 12, 2014

 H&M Paris collection coat // Zara leather pants // Bershka blouse // Forever 21 beanie // Primark necklace // Vintage bag // Converse shoes

 Hi lovelies!
Hope you’re having a great weekend! I had some pancakes this morning…nomnomnom…the best way to start a lazy Sunday, wouldn’t you agree?! And the best part is, the love made them while I was getting ready for an outfit shoot! The weather today is so perfect! These are just the most wonderful winter days: quiet, peaceful combined with some sunbeams on the cheeks.
This is my outfit I wore last week for a day of shopping in Antwerp! I bought my very first Converse All Stars in New York a while back! Never thought I would, one day, wear black All Stars. It’s quite funny how your personal style changes over time. For me it meant that I’m more open for shoes without heels, among other things, haha :). One thing is for sure: I feel like I’m flying in these shoes. I can imagine that people wear them all the time. So this was the perfect outfit for a day of hectic shopping in Antwerp. Loose fit, easy going and all black is always a good idea.
Have a wonderful day!

Love, Farah

PS. I saw the coat I’m wearing at the H&M stores with 50 % off! Which means only 75 euros! Go for it!

Outfit || Blue Fur by BYVH

november 29, 2013
Rino & Pello faux fur coat // Zara pants // River Island boots // Vanilia lace top // Pedro bag

 
ph// Vivian Hoorn (BYVH)
 Hi dearies!
It’s weeeekend! Do you have crazy plans? I’m counting the days that my boyfriend, Diederik, will be back again! He’s coming back on Monday and I can’t wait! It’s like the feeling when you were a kid and when you were counting the days until your birthday. So glad he will be by my side again. Celebrating the holidays together and enjoying the Christmas vibes in town. Amsterdam is so pretty at the moment. Christmas vibes everywhere!
Last week, I visited the sample sale of Hunkemöller. I didn’t expect  that there would also be clothing, though. This is where I got myself this blue faux fur from Rino & Pello. I hesitated for a while but in the end I bought it and I haven’t regretted it so far! Do you like it? It’s a statement piece and something that you either like or dislike. Since it was on a sample sale I tried to find it on the web and I did! Click here!
A few weeks ago I met the beautiful fashionblogger Vivian of By VH at a meeting of Ilovefashionbloggers. She does a lot of photography herself as well, which resulted in a shoot we did together last week! I love the results! Thank you babe!
Oh! And what do you think of the boots in action? 😀 😉
Have a great great weekend!
Love, Farah

Outfit || Eye Catching Elegance

  Vanilia dress // Style Headquarters statement necklace

Ph//AnnisaGM

Hi dearies!

Hope you’re all doing well! After a week of exams this week is filled with a lot of blogger and press events and things to do on that endless to-do-list. Monday, the first day of the week. Not my most favorite day of the week. I decided to use it make the most out of it and got up early and spent the whole day with my bestie to work on new ideas/designs for the blog as I told you here. With that said, I wanted to dress up nicely. I actually believe that dressing up will always make you feel better resulting in better results in anything you’re doing at that moment in your life. 

It’s raining sample sales lately, and last weekend I went to the Vanilia sample sale with my mommy, bestie and her mommy and sister. The Vanilia sample sale is definitely one of my most favorite sample sales since I love their clothes and I always succeed in buying beautiful, good quality items.
Such as this dress. A beautiful dress that for your Christmas dinner with your family (and/or in-laws)  and for NYE with your friends. It also works for just a day working on the blog at the Starbucks and chillings afterwards at one of Amsterdam’s skylounge of the Double Tree Hilton Hotel. A hotspot in Amsterdam! Why not? Throw your own party every day!

Topped the outfit off with this beautiful necklace I, recently, got from Style Headquarters. I don’t have to tell you any more about my love for statement necklaces! Speaking about that, yesterday I visited the press event of the new Spring/Summer 2014 collection of Swarovski. A blogpost about that will follow soon! Be ready for some drooling 😉 :).

Accessories || Hairbow

 The accessories section of River Island is just next to the shoes. How can one miss it? This bow was winking at me from far away! I couldn’t resist. It makes your hair look cute and being cute is always a good idea, non?

NEW IN || River Island Metalics

november 25, 2013

Hi dearies!
Figuring that these are my fourth(!) new pair of shoes this month, you probably wonder where in the world I keep them. Well, just like a lot of people: in my hallway. Only issue is, I can’t open my front door properly anymore! I’ve got so (/too) many now! A little while back, my closet was featured on the website I Love Fashion News, and I showed a little bit of my shoe collection. What you don’t see on the photo is that the entire floor is covered with shoes as well!
Anyways, that doesn’t stop me from expanding my collection though! Here’s a (another) new pair of boots that I can be worn everyday to survive the cold Dutch winter – in style
At the moment, I’m at the Starbucks at the Double Tree Hilton hotel, brainstorming about Formula Farah 2.0 with my bestie! If you have any ideas and/or suggestions, please let me know! I would love to hear about them and incorporate them to my blog. Comment me on Facebook, Instagram or just leave a message down here! Thanks so much, really appreciate it!
Love, 
Farah

Outfit || Falling Pink

november 23, 2013

Hi lovelies!
It’s the weekend! Hope you have lots of great plans! I had two exams last week and I’m sort of exhausted because of all the studying and practicing. The ones who follow me on Instagram must have seen that I went to the Hunkemöller Sample Sale after my exam! Well, shopping was well deserved right 😀 Oeh! I also bought another faux fur coat! Can’t wait to show it to you!
To the ones who have no plans for today, it’s at the Borchlandweg in Amsterdam! I can recommend it to everyone! There are lot of sample sales going on lately. Tomorrow, I’m going to the Vanilia Sample Sale, definitely one of my favorites! It’s gonna be a double date with my mother and my bestie who is also bringing her mother. I announce the sample sales on my Facebook, so if you’d like to be updated, make sure you’re following me on my Facebook page! Last week, I reached the 1000 likes mark on Facebook! A milestone. Thank you so much, again, for all of your support!
About the outfit! Still going strong with my New York City outfits! It’s almost time again for some bad weather in the Netherlands outfits :(. The Brooklyn Bridge is a stunning place to shoot outfit pictures and have a romantic walk.  I’m wearing a complete Forever21 outfit! When I told you about the boots yesterday (here) that wasn’t the only thing I got in that store! I cannot wait for Forever 21 to open in Amsterdam soon! The color pink is all over the place and I adore it. Still haven’t bought a pink coat but a pink knit will do for a while! 🙂 Combined it with a cute dress full of flowers and of course, with the beloved overknee boots.  Also, I’m wearing this new cute beanie with a flower and some veil to make the total look less girly. I’m totally in love with the beanie-with-veil trend! I’m about to make myself one! 
Have you ever been to New York and what was your favorite place?
Have a great weekend!
Love, Farah

Details || Over the Knee

november 21, 2013

Hi lovelies!
The search for the perfect overknee boots (while on a budget) was endless. Until I found the perfect overknees at River Island. And remember that I got a 100 euro giftcard that I could spend at the RI? I was absolutely excited! However, they didn’t have the boots in my size anymore! I even went back a couple of times, but they just didn’t have them anymore :(.

But, some new inspiration came my way and I saw the beautiful blogger Noor of Queen of Jet Lags wearing these boots! I couldn’t be any happier ’cause you can get these boots at Forever 21 and I was about to go to the Big Apple! (Amsterdam is going to get her own F21, but for now, I had to go to a city such as NYC.) To make matters better, my size was still available! And to make my wallet happy as well, these boots were only 44 bucks! Hellooooo new boots and thank you Noor for the inspiration!

Love, Farah
