AMSTERDAM

Hello hello! I’m sitting here watching Frasier with Dutch subtitles and finally enjoying [expensive] access to the hotel’s wi fi connection. I leave for Paris tomorrow, so I wanted to share all my Amsterdam experiences before I go.

It’s an incredible city– and an AMAZING place to shop! I’ll have more on my INSANE favorite purchase later (seriously– this is something I can’t BELIEVE I’m lucky enough to own!), but suffice to say it’s been a very successful trip so far in that arena…

Here’s a collage I whipped up of all the pictures I’ve taken around the city because I couldn’t choose which ones to post and didn’t want to overwhelme/bore you with an obnoxiously long post:

It’s beautiful, no?

I’ve also attempted (mostly unsuccessfully) some street-style shots on the sly… Here are the few usable ones I came up with– I wish I had more because I’ve seen so many well-dressed people, but a lot of the time I just couldn’t get my camera ready fast enough:

Next up: here’s what I’ve been wearing lately:

DSC05973[A Detacher top, Banana Republic sequined skirt, Loeffler Randall sandals, vintage Coach bag]

And finally, here’s one of my other favorite purchases from Amsterdam– this pair of gorgeous [and deeply discounted] Prada pumps:

DSC05965They’re so fabulous! I can’t wait to show you my other big purchase… it DEFINITELY deserves its own post!

Well, hopefully Paris will bring a better internet situation–it’s REALLY slow here. No matter what, I won’t be deterred! The blog will go on! 🙂 More to come soon!
