While editing photos, I uncovered Halloween photos just realized that I haven't posted any! Basically I was my spirit animal, a rainicorn, Lady Rainicorn to be specific. Not sure what animal I'd encompass more than a rainbow unicorn covered in glitter. Except maybe a puppy. Anyways, I finally had an excuse to do the rainbow eyeshadow thing I mastered as a sophomore in high school, and finished it off with a vintage Lisa Frank glitter tattoo.

AMSTERDAM WAS STUCK IN MY MIND

What I would wear to Amsterdam Fashion Week JoellenLove What I would wear to Amsterdam Fashion Week JoellenLove What I would wear to Amsterdam Fashion Week JoellenLove What I would wear to Amsterdam Fashion Week JoellenLove What I would wear to Amsterdam Fashion Week JoellenLove What I would wear to Amsterdam Fashion Week JoellenLove What I would wear to Amsterdam Fashion Week JoellenLove What I would wear to Amsterdam Fashion Week JoellenLove What I would wear to Amsterdam Fashion Week JoellenLove What I would wear to Amsterdam Fashion Week JoellenLove What I would wear to Amsterdam Fashion Week JoellenLove What I would wear to Amsterdam Fashion Week JoellenLove

This week I put something together with Amsterdam Fashion Week in mind. My sister lived in the Netherlands for a couple years--I've learned to conceal my green-with-envy complexion and hope to visit very soon! Here in Southern California, specifically LA, seasons barely exist, so January in Amsterdam serves as a more than amazing reason to layer up. Inspired by Fashionchick, I layered a tartan babydoll with vintage mesh tights and a cozy, textured overcoat, topped off with tortoise framed sunnies. 
Have you ever visited Amsterdam or the Netherlands? What would you wear to Amsterdam Fashion Week?
