MY SHOP TOP 3…
1.Salon Heleen Hulsmann
One of those places you have to visit if you love fashion. It’s not an ordinary shop, it’s a salon and you have to make an appointment to get in. That does sound very intimidating, I know, but it’s really not. You will find the most amazing vintage pieces which are affordable and in great condition. Owner Heleen Hulsmann will help you finding the right outfit in a split second, because she literally breathes fashion. Oh and do consider to take a look online as well, as she also rents out. www.salonheleenhulsmann.nl

Other Stories is a massive shop chain and family of H&M, but I just simply love their style. It’s very affordable, quality is surprisingly good and for me it’s the perfect shop to find nice jumpers, tops and shoes. Simple but sophisticated. And I must say they have a very nice lingerie section in the back of the store, where I recently found the perfect bra and bottom for new Polaroid’s at the agency ;).
Heiligeweg 26-28 Amsterdam
3. Het Kabinet
Warning: don’t visit this store too often, not great for you financial status. On the other hand; very good for your fashion-collection ;). What I like about this store is that it feels very international and they sell extraordinary pieces. Main reason to visit this shop for me is because they sell Rick Owens. I’ve got several jackets of this icon-designer and they’re making me feel edgy but feminine, they are timeless and worth every penny. See for yourself and don’t blame me.
