Blue Square

Good afternoon & Happy Halloween!

Finally it is weekend.... and no university today :)
Had a pretty relaxed morning and a lovely afternoon with my friend Milena. Now I will make myself some tea and work on my Stylebook (project) and will make some delicious food!
My outfit today was pretty basic and cozy. I am in love with my blue neckless, which I got from Bosnia. I combined the basic black look with an expressive blue colored jacket, which seemed to match my blue neckless and "American" Bag. Actually, this outfit was created randomly, since I really needed to do laundry today! :D

Well ... I wish you all a creepy night and think squared!
Best wishes,
Laura S

Lovely Knit

Good morning!
Today is a perfect day to visit museums in Leiden for some new research for our new project at AMFI: stylebook! My style is Japan and I am pretty excited about it, as I am very interested in the asian culture. Before I hop in the metro I will show you my latest photos with my new lovely knit from COS. I fell in love with the color and fabric and therefore had to get it from the sale rack, in contrast I wore my leather jacket, my high waisted skinny jeans and my boots from ASH.

I simply love this contrast!

Have a good day and think squared :)

Cozy Weekend


After almost 2 weeks I am back on my blog. I literally had so much to do in the last week of AMFI before the fall break. Actually in fall break I did not do anything, I stayed at home most of the time and tried to get as much sleep as I can. Therefore I also did not have a chance to get my pictures taken, but I know this is also a cheap excuse for not posting anything.

One of my friends from home came to visit me over the weekend and I am so happy she did. Anella and I have been friends for such a long time and it is always great to catch up with her and just pretend like we have never been apart. Time flew by so fast, but we were able to enjoy the beautiful days in Amsterdam and enjoy each others company. I will truly miss her!

Yes, if you have ever wondered if I miss home, here is the answer. Of course there are moments, where I wish to be with my friends and family, but I chose to live here and study here. I love Innsbruck, but Amsterdam is my home now (as for hopefully at least 4 years).

Have a look at some shots from the city below.
Had a lovely couple of days and cannot wait for university to start again tomorrow!

Grandma's Fur Vest

Wow! It has been already a week since my last post! Sorry for taking my time, but university lately has been keeping me busy - really busy.
This week friday we are all supposed to hand in our Inspiration book and I really can't wait for this project to be done, I finally want to get some feedback on my work! :)

Next week I might give you a little insight in my book!
Today, my lovely friend Milena and I went to take some pictures. The weather was awful, but nevertheless we were able to get some really good shots.
"Grandma's Fur Vest" literally says it all - I got this vest as a present from my grandma (from Poland) and I am just in love with it, maybe because it is from her or because I have been wanting a fur vest anyways. :)
Together with my denim shirt, bordeaux pants and a pair of Nike I created this cute fall look. Have fun looking through my photos and feel free to leave comments behind!

Good evening!

Wow! Das letzte update von meinem Blog war vor einer Woche! Es tut mir wirklich leid, dass ich euch warten hab lassen, aber es gibt zurzeit sehr viel für die Uni zu tun. 
Dieses Freitag müssen wir alle unser Inspirationsbuch abgeben und ich kann es kaum erwarten, da ich endlich Feedback bekommen möchte! 

Nächste Woche gebe ich euch vielleicht einen kleinen Einblick! 
Heute haben meine Freundin Milena und ich ein paar Fotos gemacht. Das Wetter war furchtbar, aber trotzdem haben wir es geschafft ein paar tolle Bilder zu schießen. 
"Oma's Fellweste" - Ich habe diese Fellweste von meiner Oma aus Polen bekommen und ich liebe sie, vielleicht weil sie von meiner Oma kommt, oder weil ich schon immer eine Fellweste haben wollte... wer weiß :) 
In Zusammensetzung mit meinem Jeanshemd, dunkelroter Hose und meine Nike's habe ich diesen Herbstlook kreiert. Viel Spaß beim Betrachten meiner Fotos und ihr könnt mir auch gern Kommentare hinterlassen!

Schönen Abend!

Approved Sneakers Market

Hey everyone!
Yesterday my roommate Mirjam and I went to the Approved Sneakers Market in Amsterdam Roest!
To be honest, I expected more from the market itself because most sneakers were just really expensive, but nevertheless I saw some pretty amazing shoes (too bad I do not have money to buy one pair). They had everything you can think of, most of them were NIKE, but they also had other brands like Reebok, New Balance and Jordan Shoes.

What I loved about this market were all the individual sneaker loving people that were present and the atmosphere in the area of Roest! Definitely worth the 3,50€ entrance fee and it was just really inspiring to see.

Below you can check out my photos from the Sneakers Market! :)
Have a good day!

Take a walk! Sneakers -loving people at the market! 

I wish I would have bought these shoes, but unfortunately they were one size too small :(

The World of Denim

Good morning!

After a long and stressful week I am happy to day that it is finally weekend.
My post today is about the Denim Industry and therefore I will tell you more about 2 individual brands.
Why am I doing this? We had a lecture on Thursday night about how Denim influences the industry and how difficult it is to establish newcomer brands on the market in the Netherlands and around the world.

K.O.I (Kings of Indigo) is the first brand I would like to introduce. This brand is inspired by the American Classics and set focus on the Japanese eye for detail (started in 2011). What makes them special is, that they try to produce sustainable and some Jeans are even produced with a Selvage (old machines with red thread). The recycle - repair - reuse method gives customers the chance to repair their own pair of jean and the packaging is recyclable (organic - recycling - Fair wear).
All in all, I believe that K.O.I is a really great new brand on the market to stress the importance of Sustainability and their special design elements make it really worth buying on of their Jeans.

Check it out:

MUD Jeans is the second brand I want to set focus on. Unfortunately it is a brand that once went bankrupted, but now is trying to find their way back up. Great Design and Idea stand behind MUD and I truly believe, that their new "Lease a Jean" idea will soon spread all over.
How does leasing a jean work? 
First you have to pay a 20€ deposit and then you choose a jean of your choice and MUD will take 6€ per month from your bank account for one year and then you get to choose whether you want to keep it, switch it or send it back.

If you want to know more about this idea and about MUD itself, then check out:

To sum everything up, it is fascinating too hear how brands work and try to find their way in the business. Now it is our turn (customers) to make a change and really start supporting small businesses. And now lets be honest...who does not want to have a jean that fits perfectly and lasts you for a lifetime?

Maybe K.O.I or MUD will be hanging in your closet least they will in mine (as soon as I have more money to buy one :D )

Don't forget to look at my photos below :)
This time I focused on Denim, but mixed all the items I had to create this "denim outfit".

Have a great weekend and think squared,
