PHOTOGRAPHY #2 (BERLIN)

photos by me
Berlin, oh Berlin. It was nice visiting you, but it is even better to be back. Last week my fashionable classmates and me went to Berlin for a school trip. We had to gain information and inspiration for our brand concepts. Since I already visited Berlin last year, I was not that inspired this time, but we did some nice things. We visited the Hamburger Bahnhof  museum, cycled through the city and visited lots and lots of shops. So basically we saw the whole city in three days. At least I have the feeling we did. And know it is time to create our own new brand concept. It is so much fun, but pretty hard. Next week, we have to pitch our ideas. Sooo, let that creative brain work!
LOVE, LISANNE
Ps. For some reason I can't use Imageshack.us anymore. Does someone know an other good site to upload my images bigger than this? :)

THE RED CARDIGAN

OUTFIT. It has been a really long time ago, since I wore this hat. This weekend I was at my parents place and I found it again. I think that it works very good with some outfits. The cardigan I'm wearing is very special to me, since it used to be my grandmothers. I love pieces like this, with a story, cause they personalize your wardrobe and don't make you a copy of H&M or Zara. Oh, and I ordered new black loafers, yaaay! Since my old ones are broken. I really hope they fit. Enjoy your Wednesday (and this awesome weather!).
LOTS OF LOVE,
LISANNE

PHOTOGRAPHY. One thing of being a brander, is that you have to get lots of inspiration from all things in life. We have to carry our camera with us, every day. I have to admit that I don't take it with me every day, because my baby is so big and sometimes I already have three bags with me, but when I do, I take many photographs. Since they are for school assignments, they are not always that pretty, but some are. And I share the pretty ones with you in my 'photography' rubric.
LOTS OF LOVE,
LISANNE
Ps. We as 'poor' students like to win things right? For the Dutchies among us, I have something nice. Next month, it is Koningsdag and on the website of Zalando, you can create your own Royal outfit. Besides that is it fun to do, you also can win free gift cards. Interested? Click here and be as creative as possible. Have fun!

KIWI GREEN

OUTFIT. Love. at. the. first. side. Those five words describe the connection I have with my new cardigan. It is everything I needed. Warm, soft, hairy, colourful, cosy, long, outstanding, in other words: just perfect. It is also a conventional piece, because I already had a couple of discussions with people about the colour. Some say it is yellow, some say it is green, but I prefer kiwi-green. I have to admit that it looks a little yellow on the images, but I swear that it is not yellow in real life. Funny fact is that I got this beauty when I went shopping with my mom and she loved it as well, so she got the same one. It is a kind of tradition to buy something the same so every now and then, a little mother-daughter thing. Then my love at second side, the leather dress. When I saw it I immediately saw it as a perfect basic to fit my - not that inspiring anymore – wardrobe. I already know endless combinations for all kind of occasions.
LOTS OF LOVE,
LISANNE

IT IS IN THE DETAILS

OUTFIT. Time flies, when you are having fun. Or fun, I would not exactly call it fun. Well, where have a been? I have not been active for ages (with an exception of my 'perfect boots' post). In the meantime, I am working my ass off for school, enjoying the life in Amsterdam and, and, and I turned 19! I always used to pay attention on my birthday on my blog, but this year it is all a little different. One of the reasons that I kind of 'forgot' my birthday, is the fact that I was away that weekend - the 15th of march. I was sailing, yay! It is even that bad, that I still did not get presents. Anyways, about this post. These are pictures taken ages ago of a failed outfit shoot, which I did not post yet. Featuring my - meanwhile not that new anymore - silver blazer, my favourite shorts and a nice black blouse. So this was my little chat, my next outfit post will be about my belated birthday outfit. Ciao.
LOTS OF LOVE,
LISANNE

THE PERFECT BOOTS







NEW. Sun, sun, sun, oh how amaaazing is this weather? It makes my so happy! If there is one thing that really lacks in my closet, then it are shoes. I actually have about three pairs of shoes which I really wear. I know, it is ridiculous, since I'm at a fashion school. But I'm very critical when it is about shoes and they are most of the time expensive. You can never go wrong with black boots and I wear them all the time, they fit almost every outfit. My old babies couldn't bare the daylight anymore. They actually had little holes on the side, so time for new ones. These beauties from Eden are going to replace them.
LOTS OF LOVE,
LISANNE

THE TWEED AND LEATHER JACKET

Follow me on  FACEBOOK // BLOGLOVIN // TWITTER

OUTFIT. The first outfit with my short hair. I got a lot of positive reactions on it. I'm already used to it. Their is one thing what I like about sale and that is that you can find the most amazing treasures for Nice prices. The jacket that I'm wearing is a treasure. I really like the combination of tweed and leather. It's a mix of sweet preppy and sturdiness.
LOTS OF LOVE,

FASHIONISTA MAGAZINE

Follow me on  FACEBOOK // BLOGLOVIN // TWITTER
FEATURED. Remember this post, where I told you about my Fashionista shoot? It is published and I’m very happy with the result! It is always fun to do shoots like this. In total there were six bloggers who participated, in three different sizes, with three different themes. Together with Nishita, I represented size 34/36.  Our theme was Sportswear and Summer metallic, which isn’t my piece of cake at the first sign. But I think I created a typically ‘Lisanne’ outfit, with my lovely teddy coat.
LOTS OF LOVE,

HAPPY NEW HAIR

Follow me on  FACEBOOK // BLOGLOVIN // TWITTER
LIFE. I did it. I cut my hair. After having long hair for ages, I decided to finally cut it short last Friday. I've been doubting about this for a while, but I'm very attatched to my long and curly hair, so I never took the step. Last week Wednesday, I had my Interim Assesment, which I passed (yaaaay) and their advice for coming semester was that I should get more out of my comfortzone. My work is all very safe. So I thought to start with cutting my hair short. I still have to get used to it, but I like the result.
LOTS OF LOVE,
LISANNE

SUNSET


jumper: WE // skirt: H&M // overknees: C&A // shoes: Zalando Collection // necklace (new): Primark
OUTFIT. Oh how I love sunsets. It is something that can make me very happy. Like when I cycle home after a busy school day and the sky totally turns out pink, magical. Coming Monday I have to hand in the last project of the first semester of AMFI; the prototype. It is sooo strange that my first half year is almost finished. I can't believe how fast time travels. I still haven't showed you my Style Book, so be prepared for the next post. 
LOTS OF LOVE,

THE JEANS

jeans(new): Garcia // blouse(new): Vila // coat: WE // scarf & beanie (new): present from my granny // shoes: Manfield
OUTFIT. I see you guys thinking; 'Lisanne, in a pair of jeans, how is it possible?'.Well, let's say a new year, new chances. I got the opportunity to write a review about these Riva jeans from Garcia in co-operation with Jeans Centre. First of all, they fit perfectly. I haven't wore normal denim jeans for ages and these are feeling like my pajamas. What I like about it is the washing. It will make your legs look skinnier, because the outside is darker. I have quite long legs, so these were unfortunately a little too short. My solution was to roll up the trousers. Perfect for Spring. When I was at my parents place, I saw these shoes again in the back of my closet and I thought they fit nicely with my new scarf and beanie, which I got from my lovely grandmother. The only thing I don't really like about these pants is the fact that they are quite low waisted. I'm really used to wear high waisted pants, but hey, something different can be good sometimes. A perfect pair of pants, for lazy, comfy days. Also looking for a great new pair of jeans? Take a look at the website or Facebook of Jeans Centre.
LOTS OF LOVE,

MY 2013

Maybe a little late, but I still wanted to make a recap of my 2013. I think I can say that this has been a turbulent year. So many things happened! I was an amazing year. I met many great people, did lots of fun things and made enough memories to fill an entire book. I'm going to guide you quickly through my year in 12 images.
 
January started well with Amsterdam Fashion Week. It was my fourth time and I really loved it! February was all about my intake at the Amsterdam Fashion Institute. I dreamed about this school for so long and now the moment came to make my dreams come true. I made a portfolio and in March the amazing news came: I got accepted! March was also the month that I became 18. April wasn't that special. I just did nice things with friends and I was busy with the preparations for my final exams. Sometimes that was a little hard, but always keep smiling!

May was a very very very excited month, because this was the month of my final exams. Finally after six years of Gymnasium, it became time to rock that exams and leave high school. To celebrate the fact that the finals were over, I went to Albufeira with eight amazing friends. It was one of the best holidays every! In June I heard that I was graduated and that was one of the best feelings ever! In the beginning of July I had my graduation ceremony and I've been on holidays with my parents. I also got the 50mm lens, finally. August was probably the most exciting month of my life, because I moved out! I moved to the best city of the Netherlands; Amsterdam. I have my own little place in this big city and I still enjoy it every day.  
Then September came, also a very very very excited month. I started on my study International Fashion & Branding. Since, the first day, I love it, but it also contains a lot of work and I can tell that it is totally worth it. Hard work pays off. You'll survive with a lot of motivation and dedication  October consisted of school school school. I passed my first project, happy me. This year, I didn't blog that much, just because all the big happenings and in November I thought I got my sparks back. But now, a month later, I didn't blog much more. One of my good intentions for 2014, is to keep you guys more updated and post more regularly. In November I also got this baby and I'm using it a lot! These months I also focused on getting to know new people and getting used to my new life. This all works out pretty amazing as we speak. I'm so happy about that. I ended this year celebrating NYE in Amsterdam with two of my lovely friends, my sweet roomies and other people who came to our awesome houseparty. It was a great end of 2013 and an amazing start of 2014.

So I can say, 2013 has been pretty amazing, and I'm so curious what 2014 will bring! 
LOTS OF LOVE, 
LISANNE
