Going Dutch

I really wanted to do a blog all about Amsterdam street/style blogs to compliment the post i did on London. I'm going to visit there in early September as part of my vacation/second honeymoon. But I just really couldn't find much. maybe my search engine got sleepy or depressed. One blog I already had picked out isn't actually from Amsterdam, but I'm completely open to bloggers in the Netherlands. Another blog I found was the only one I kept running into through other blogs in their international section. And then I stumbled into the third one somehow. Three! That's it! I KNOW more are out there, so please, if anyone is receiving this transmission, send me info/links on Amsterdam/Netherlands style/vintage/??? blogs.....

Renee Sturme has a lovely blog that I've been reading for some time. I really love her creative outfit posts and living vicariously through her travels. She's a prolific poster, so check back often.

Dam Style is , of course, a street style blog. I love getting to see how real people in foreign lands dress themselves. The more ordinary and less self consciously fashiony they are the better. I think I like street style blogs so much because they show male style and i think most bloggers are girls, or at least the ones I'm finding.

fadtony is another street style blog. And the only thing bad about those types of blogs is that they can be a bit more impersonal. Sometimes it's nice to feel like you know someone through their blog. But this still has some nice pics of local characters...

So I guess that's it for now. I'm sorry this was such a lame thrown together post. i promise I'll have some more style inspiration next time.


  1. I love the last outfit. The blue is amazing.

  2. I swear, every time I read this, the picture of the guy throws me off. See, I always check out the pictures first. And the first picture looks like something you would post about yourself, and then there's this tall light brown-haired thin guy and for a split second I think to myself, "WHAT HAVE YOU DONE WITH WILL'S HAIR?! ...Oh wait." xD And then I go back and realize if I had read over it in the first place, I wouldn't have had this problem. :P

    I think the Renee girl is my favorite of the blogs... Some in the others are just plain creepy. xD
