Last Thursday I attended another beautiful wedding. And I needed a fabulous outfit of the day, so this time I went for something new... iammode ootd I wanted a simple dress and red is always a good choice. I also saw a light pink dress, but skipped that one, as I didn't want to wear something that close to white on a wedding. But when I saw this beauty hanging in the shop, it was love at first sight!wpid-2015-07-31-18-39-49-029.jpg

I didn't accessorize too much with this dress. I thought the color was popping enough. A small bracelett and elegant earrings complete the look. And ofcourse my newest addition this Michael Kors bag I got from my dearest Tuğba.  iammode ootd fashionI kept the beauty department simple and light. I pulled my hair up in a bun and used a winged eyeliner with a red lip. Simple and easy to maintain on a hot day. iammode ootd fashion

The look of this week is mainly for the ladies who love to combine and also who dare to combine. The basic item for this look is the baggy skirt with a beautiful colorful print. When I wear a skirt with print I often like to combine it with a more quiet top. Here we opted for a black solid top. Why always wear sandals or high heels with a skirt, while you can also choose a pair nice striking sneakers. The clutch of Guess and the cat eye sunglasses provide a tough and a romantic look. Go for it!

A while ago: Fashionweek! In this throwback of today I'm sharing an outfit I wore during Amsterdam Fashion Week. And because it's fall all of a sudden, I like to look back on sunny days. So here you go: a summer OOTD!

iammode ootd fashionweek 2 One of my favorite items in this outfit, is my Melolla necklace. A while ago I spoke to the sweet and talented designer Melissa. Her necklaces stood out to me. Chunky, and definitely an eyecatcher! All her necklaces are handmade with fabrics from Portugal. I really think her necklace  is a great addition to my OOTD and perfect for Fashion Week!

On the 4th day of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Susana Bettencourt presented her SS16 collection 'Ways of Seeing'.PHOTO © 2015 TEAM PETER STIGTER  FOR EDITORIAL USE ONLY  WITH CREDITS - FILENAME IS DESIGNER NAME

When the show started, I didn't really know what to expect. Especially since the first models were practically naked when they came on the runway. All of a sudden there were actual looks. And for the first time during this edition of Fashion Week, I was silenced by what I saw. In a positive way that is. Every piece that past on the catwalk was perfectly finished and showed great craftmanship.

In this show, Susana Bettencourt didn't use a lot of color. The inspiration for this collection is the color white and her love for knitwear. The collection is very clean. It fits the idea that she went back to her roots in Portgal, were her passion for knitwear and rtraditional lace techniques started. One of my favorite shows during MBFWA!

Lichting  is one of my favorite shows during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Amsterdam. A long show, but always worth the wait. 14 just graduated students from the different fashion schools in Holland show their designing skills in 5 designs. The winner of Lichting is chosen by a jury.

The big difference with the other fashion shows is that during the Lichting show you get to see new things. Not always wearable or for me, but I can appreciate the refreshing creativity shown in the collections. I also like the different stories behind the collections.

This years winner of Lichting is Nikki Duijst. I personally thought the collections of Carlijn Gubbens, Karim Adduchi en Abbie Stirrup were showstoppers! Which collection is your favorite?

The sisters Spijkers & Spijkers presented their spring/summer '16 collection 'Love'. A big SIS collection during Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Amsterdam, that took us on a trip trough the universe.

The 'Love' theme comes back in different ways in the collection. The idea that Cupid shoots his arrows trough the universe and spreads love, is shown in the arrows and rockets on some pieces. But also on the graphic prints. I have to be honest; this was not one of my favorite Spijkers& Spijkers collections. I didn't see something very new and I didn't like the color palet, especially the pastel ones. But they presented a SIS collection that you can wear to the office or in your free time. The show ended with transparant, glittery A-line dresses in different colors.

On the 4th day of  Mercedes- Benz Fashion Week Amsterdam, the TV personalities and besties Tailor & Elbaz presented their collection  'Queen of Hearts'.

The catwalk in the Transformatorhuis was transformed into a scene form Alice in Wonderland. We all know the story of Alice by now, but we were curious to see how the ladies translated this story to the catwalk. The models wear a lot of preppy clothes in this spring/summer '16 collection. The show starts with monochrome pieces and gets sweeter with the baby blue and pink pieces. The 'Queen of Hearts' theme comes back in almost the whole collection. I'm a fan of the coats and the shirts with the different card symbols on them.

The styling of the models compliments this girly collection. All the models wear their hair pulled back in a semi knot with doll face blush and a big fat winged eyeliner. All the looks were finished with a short heel and thin socks. A colorful debute of Tailor & Elbaz at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Amsterdam!
