jumper second hand market amsterdam, trousers uniqlo
I don't want to spend money on mass-produced garments anymore.
High street fashion stores make me sad... with their cheap fabrics and copied trends.
And the "made in China" labels even more.
On the other hand I would prefer to support young, creative designers who put a lot of effort, time, energy into creating something special, but their creations are usually over my student budget. So right now I am left in the middle, with nothing.
This doesn't mean I am going to stop posting outfit posts though! I still love clothes and combining and styling and maybe this is just a phase I am going through and will pass with time, but for the moment I am done with (exaggerated) consumption behaviour.
Sorry if these GIF animations give you headaches as well. But I like how it is moving. They should move forward though. I always want to see what happens next, instead of returning to the beginning, like every single time.
I really enjoyed the school trip to Amsterdam. It was strange to be surrounded by a group of English people in a Dutch-speaking city though.
I can actually tell so much more things about this trip, but I don't feel like writing, so I just leave you with the idea, and the photos of course.
Right now I am in Amsterdam with school, but these pictures are still from a week-end in London. The photos I take and post lately can be categorized in 'documenting life' I think, so that's also why I should post more often, because life never stands still, and my camera doesn't stand still either, but this blog sometimes does.
1 // First time that I went to this awesome market on Brick Lane in East London. It's every Sunday, and you'll find many different stalls full of beautiful jewelry and clothes for good prices!
2 // Hallelujah, I finally found a new pair of shoes. And just from H&M!
3 // Found this amazing photography gallery down a side street just off Oxford Street. It's so strange how this place, located in a small and quiet street is completely in contrast with bustling Oxford Street.
