Hey everyone 

I am so sorry for the delay in posts, but I have been crazy busy for the past week so I haven't  been able to blog let alone visit my friends blogs and say hi or reply to comments or anything! As you may know, I got invited to multiple shows at Amsterdam fashion week. Five days of real life fashion. Exhilarating, inspiring, blissful, hectic yet wonderfully exhausting, this has been a week that will be hard to ever forget.

For day one I decided to wear something comfortable yet classy and colorful. A stunning floral scarf by Luxyra added that much needed color I was looking for. Luxyra is a very exclusive brand specialized in original Russian scarfs of extreme high quality and allure. I have to add that all the designs are of impeccable beauty and print and are made of real sheeps wool and pure silk. The fringes are hand made and add a trendy yet timeless touch . Do check out their classy collection right here  if you are in need for some luxury around your neck during the cold and even chilly spring days. Luxyra scarfs are of such amazing quality they also do make for the perfect gift that will just last a life time!

Now let's talk about Fashion Week. The first show I attended was from the much anticipated: Aziz Bekkaoui and I have to tell you, can anyone be more fabulous then Aziz? 

Check out my Fashion Week day 1 diary!

The Show:




Safe the best for last? This quote does not apply to a fearless designer named:  Aziz Bekkaoui!

Amsterdam Fashion Week day one kicked off  with a show that's in my top three favorites of this 2014 edition and has been announced in the Dutch media as one of the best shows Amsterdam Fashion week has seen in their ten year existence!

Aziz, a groundbreaking and creative individual knows how to create pieces that go far beyond the ordinary. His  2014 Fall/Winter collection was filled with furry hats, lace printed tights - oh yeah welcome back from the eighties -, leather pants and skirts, silks, wool fabrics, chunky knits all paired with bold leather army boots and bomber jackets, vibing a multi cultured, military and religious background, yet was easily transformed in to an urban and street wise vision called: "Images Rule". Here a few photos I shot to give you an idea.
 
Eat your heart out "all black" and lace lovers!

Aziz opened his show by bringing out one model strutting down the runway to peaceful classical music and totally changed it all up by bringing in an army of dancers moving to Public Enemy's  "Fight The Power" beats. It was so unexpected everyone in the audience woke up in surprise and from that moment on the show was a full half hour explosion of banging music, fierce models with tons of the needed attitude and of course a killer collection containing an astonishing number of 64 pieces!

Aziz ended his show by walking down the entire runway with his army of models and even backstage co-workers to receive a standing ovation!
Out of the more then ten shows I was been able to visit during Fashion week Aziz Bekkaoui along with designer -Dorthuis Mees-  were the only designers receiving this honor and trust me it was well deserved, because I think Aziz collection is of international level of fabulousness. I am already thinking of grabbing myself a few lace tights and pairing it with a furry hat and some chunky knits on the blog. This show inspired me to the bone!

Birthday Girl

January 20, 2014

DSC_8950 Birthday girl resized

Hey everyone

 Just a quick post wanting to share my birthday outfit as it was my B-day just yesterday. In a festive mood I chose bold colors by choosing this gorgeous dress that's been hanging in my closet without ever wearing it for months now. This dress has been waiting for the perfect occasion and finally I couldn't have found a better opportunity to take this beauty out.

Some people are fearful of wearing color during winter, but I am not one to bounce back limiting myself  to just black and grey colors during the colder season. Although I must admit I am liking all black outfits a lot lately, I still can't help but infuse color into my life just to brighten up a dark winter day and make a statement.

 I am so excited as this years first get away trip is a fact. Yesterday my amazing and awesome dad surprised me with a trip to Paris as a birthday gift! As you can imagine, I am beyond ecstatic to visit this gorgeous city and stroll along the Champs Elysees, eat croissants, escargots and enjoy some great wines and take the French" Joie de vivre" all in. I will leave just a little after Amsterdam fashion week, so early February it will be. So now if any of you all have some great tips on this city and some cool must see places I have to visit,  please do share with me. I can't wait to hear your thoughts.

I am keeping it short and sweet you guys, as I am quite busy preparing for  Amsterdam Fashion Week.  Of course I will share everything with you right here, as I am expecting it to be a lot of fun and most of all fabulously inspiring!


Enjoy a great start of the week everyone and thanks so much for reading.

Lots of love

Hey everyone 

I know, I know, I  look completely out of this world by wearing a pair of sunnies when the sun is this far to be seen.
But hey I happen to like this fabulous pair and as of right now we are experiencing the mildest winter we've had in decades, so you should all cut me some slack!
In the mean time check out my new hair chain by Myca Couture
I absolutely love it!

I need a new  fashion trend everyone.
I am getting bored with winter wear and seriously can't wait for the new spring collections to hit the stores.
Don't get me wrong, I love layering but I am in the mood for bright colors and light fabrics.
I feel like I want to change my hair color too, maybe a shade lighter for a softer look.
What do you all think? Any suggestions anyone?

This Sunday it will be my birthday, so I will post a birthday outfit as I will be celebrating with family and loved ones. I might cheat on my clean foods diet and have a huge piece of birthday cake.
I can't wait!

Enjoy a fabulous weekend everyone!

With love

Baby Blues With Myca Couture

Hey everyone 

There is nothing "baby" about baby blue if you mix the color with edgy materials like leather and metallic and a cool hat. Simply in love with this color, I am sure garments in this hue will be a staple in my closet.

Do you feel this way too?
I feel kinda sad all the festivities of the holidays are over. I love the magic of Christmas and now it's all gone and the new year has started. Dark and rainy days are ahead of us and any sign of spring is still very far away. The thing I hate the most is I have no reason anymore to eat Christmas cookies and cakes. Now of course I love my green smoothies but I can't help to think of the chocolate ice cream desserts we had over the holidays. I am not one of those lucky people who can eat whatever they want and stay thin, I have to work hard to maintain a slim figure and the holidays haven't helped. I have no other choice then to brighten up my days by wearing fun colors, I chose baby blue because it immediately lifts my spirits while wearing it and I think baby blue looks gorgeous with the color orange which has been one of my favorite colors for the past year. What do you guys think?

Well I have something to brighten up my day, thankfully there is a lot to look forward to. Amsterdam fashion week will here in  a few weeks. So I am excited to visit and I can't wait to view some amazing new collections and meet some great people. Of course I will keep all of you guys updated about it all and I promise you few fun posts on the big event. Let's be real if I have to chose between fashion and fattening holiday foods it will have to be fashion!
How about you?

In the mean time I wish you all an amazing day!

With love Tamara
