Back in Amsterdam, straight to Fashion Week. Life is good right? To be honest, We didn’t even plan to attend this year, basically because Emiel and I have been really busy preparing for our move to Indonesia in October. Still, I could not resist swinging by after receiving an invitation by one of my favorite Dutch designers: Dennis Diem
We met up with this year’s winner of Holland Next Top Model Loiza Lamers. This beauty is just the sweetest, down to earth girl you can imagine. I am already pretty tall around 5 ft 7, but without heels and wearing flats, I felt like a dwarf next to this long legged stunner lol.
I walked out the house wearing silver metallic heels but ran back to change into these comfy flat sandals I bought on the Kei Islands a few months ago. I was looking for a casual, “I am not trying too hard look” and most important I wanted to be comfortable all night. I have always, and I mean always worn high heels to Fashion Week, but remembered feeling miserable the last time I went. I did not want that, and guess what? I had the most fun I’ve ever had during a fashion week event. Yay for the flat shoes trend this season!
Dennis Diem a very well established Dutch designer kicked some serious rock and roll ass with his new collection: Sweet Rebel. Dennis was inspired by the cult movie: Cry baby by John Waters and partnered with designer Jos Jacobsfor a “sexy good girl, bad boy” contrast, while presenting Sweet Rebel with a great spectacle that screamed: absolutely fabulous!
After a great show, it was party time with Dutch DJ Carita La Nina spinning some funky tunes!
Our new favorite icecream cocktail is a Scroppino. It is so deliciousssss. I just had to share the recipe with you guys.

After our extensive long trip to Bali and the Maluku islands, it felt great to be back in fashion land. Are any of you guys attending a few shows this fashion season?
