Out and about....Nieuwe Doelenstraat

Wilhelmina is Australian and works in Amsterdam as an event organiser and DJ. She DJ's at a night called Yarr, I think I have the right link here. Kimberley is from the Netherlands and is a second year student at UVA. Wilhelmina describes her style as Rock chic, usually with colour. Kimberley's is a mix of comfy and smart casual. For her surprise she said she was spontaneously open and Wilhelmina's was that she was eccentrically adventurous. Wilhelmina's favourite place in Amsterdam is the streets, buildings (architecture) and being on her bike. Kimberley's is an underground bar called Trut where she says adventurous open minded people hang out. Her hat is Superdry, coat Sisley, jeans Cheap Monday, boots she couldn't remember the name of the shop. Wilhelmina wears a hat from Agent 99, H&M scarf, vintage coat, green coat below Stussy, jeans also Cheap Monday, boots also unknown and bag by Blonde Venus.

Out and about....Waterlooplein

From Fashionistable
Emilie is originally from Switzerland and has been living in Amsterdam for 3 months. She is an Opera singer and sings soprano and told me that she has been traveling between Amsterdam and Paris where she works with a french group of musicians. She also said "I write my own shows...with French songs". You can read more about her work on her website here. She said her style influence is very mixed. "I like to improvise and go with my emotions. When I see something that that I like, I'll try it and buy it if it suits me. I like black very much, but more and more I wear colors. Gipsy-Hippie style was very much my style as I was teenager; now it is more flexible. Now I like to change and to follow my mood of the day." Her favourite place in Amsterdam to eat is Akitsu, a fantastic Japanese restaurant where she says her boyfriend takes her regularly. She also likes the Nordermarket on a Saturday morning... "looking at the mushrooms stand and have a coffee and applepie at the corner". Her surprise is that her tongue was bitten by a turtle when she was a child (her first kiss). Emilie bought her coat, scarf and shorts in Paris. Her bag is Longchamp, bike is Batavus and her gloves and shoes are vintage. 

On another note David over at Nyanzi Report named me as the next person he would like Flingly to interview in his interview. You can read my interview here.

Out and about....Albert Cuypstraat

From Fashionistable
I met Bibi and Walter just as they were leaving a bakery/cafe. Bibi is from Amsterdam and works as a dental hygienist. Walter is originally from Surinam, South America and is a junior private banker. They both said one of their surprises was that their private persona is totally opposite to the straight work day lives they lead.Walter describes his influence as colourful urban hip-hop. Bibi said her her influence was classy with a twist. She likes faux fur and colourful vintage. Bibi says she likes to cook. She is veggie, always has been. Two of her favourite ingredients are sweet potatoes and pumpkin. Luckily Walter also has a passion for food. Bibi's 2 favourite places in Amsterdam are the Jordaan and Waterlooplein. The Waterlooplein holds a special place as her Dad has owned a stall there since she was a little girl. For Walter it is De Pijpe which is where we are for this picture. Bib is wearing a jacket from H&M, her cardy and scarf are vintage, trousers and T are by Stella Nova, her bag is Marc Jacobs and she couldn't remember where she bought her shoes. Walter is wearing a vintage hat, jacket and scarf. His sweater is H&M, jeans he bought in Oslo and his shoes are from the market.

Out and about....the Herengracht surprise

From Fashionistable
Anouk was full of surprise's both before I asked her for a surprise and after. When I first asked what she did she said she was a housewife, then further into the interview she told me she was actually on a 3 month sabbatical. Anouk owns an ad agency called Task Force with her husband and they do the advertising for C&A. Then when I asked for her surprise (as if going from housewife to ad agency owner wasn't surprising enough) she told me she is in a band and sings backing vocals with her sister. She has also started designing her own scarfs. I love multi-talented people. 3 amazing strings to her bow. Her style influence is urban, from the streets. Anouk is wearing a coat from Giel and Liem, she had just had her hair styled by Louis on the Vijzelstraat, she bought her bag in Ibiza, she couldn't remember where anything else was from saying when I see I buy.

Irina is from Moscow where she works as an accountant. She had only been in Amsterdam for 3 hours when we met.  Her surprise was that she is dreaming of parachuting. It is something she would love to do. She told me that Nicole Kiddman is her style influence. They say red and green should never be seen unless on an Irish colleen. I would beg to differ I think it looks amazing on this Russian colleen too. Her outfit is truly international. She bought her coat in Moscow, the label said Mayachix. scarf is from Nice, boots Germany and her bag is Prada.
