{GBF Life + Style} What I Would Wear to Amsterdam Fashion Week

Yes, fashion is fun. Fashion is fabulous. But what truly magnetizes me to the world of fashion is its ability to transform clothes into instruments of self-expression.  Perhaps that's why I'm adamantly against a regimen of black on black uniforms. Sure, the token "it" color of fashion is chic but it's a conforming sartorial pursuit devoid of an individual fashion perspective. That's why if I were to attend Amsterdam Fashion Week, I would shower colors of the rainbow onto the runways of Amsterdam, coordinating outfits that reflect my mood, my thoughts, and my inspirations.

This outfit is a prime example of what I would wear to Amsterdam. It's fun, it's colorful, and it brings a bit of home,  the LA sunshine, with me.  Bold gem tone colors contrast the conservative "cover it all up" silhouette. A sweater tucked into a silk skirt while the peeking of a lace embroidered collar creates a mix and match of fabrication and textures. It's a happy outfit fitting for an "on cloud nine" fashion adventure in Amsterdam.

Thank you fashionchick for the opportunity to attend Amsterdam Fashion Week. The site is a fashion hearth that brings together different styles and brands. I hope to have the chance to bring and share not just my style but a piece of me to Amsterdam.
