Tonight is the premiere of the performance we've been working on, so a nice opportunity to dress fabulous. It's a bit over the top, but that's my thing. Anna Dello Russo would be proud of me ;-) haha.
What do you think?
I bought this shirt 2 years ago when me and my classmates had to perform in Paris. Such sweet memories of this trip, and I miss them very much! I was forgotten I had this shirt, but luckily I found it back, such an eyecatcher!

Couple of months ago my friend asked me and my classmates danced in a video clip. Tao Hypah's first official single "Play the girl". The video is directed by Justin van der Lek, known for his special effects work on "Transformers", "the A-team", "G.I. Joe", "the Avengers" and many more. With 4 sets, 2 locations, Tao's own dance troupe Hypagirls, a Hollywood player directing, and of course Tao himself. Watch it here:
Sometimes I can be quite nice and when that happens I can do also nice things for some people. Today I sacrificed my day off to buy costumes for the performance next week in the Nieuwe Vorst in Tilburg. And... I'VE GOT MONEY FROM SCHOOL! Pretty cool! So today I'm a personal shopper for Fontys. Wish me luck!

07.22 AM. - Okay, what happened to all the fashionista's in the Netherlands?? I'm in front of the H&M fot the Anna Dello Russo collection and I am the first one!! Pretty cool, but also very weird. Last year in Stockholm with Versace, I took the subway at 5 o'clock and there were like 20 people in front of me. And in Paris it was the same story...
So for now I have to wait for one and a half hour before the store opens. Luckily I've my iPhone and my iPod, so I won't be bored!
08.15 AM. - Yeey, there are more people. But it's still not so crowded. Maybe everybody is saving their money for Maison Martin Margiela, who is the new designer at H&M at November 15th.
I made some friends with the security-guys and got some coffee! Only 45 minutes to go... And I feel the tiredness is comming, my hands are getting cold and my legs are getting heavy. Hold on Alyss, you can do it!
08.45 AM. - Because the security guys felt sorry for us, they opened the door 15 minutes earlier! Me, happy as a kid in a candystore, walked inside (a little uncomfortable, because everybody's watching) to the little Anna Dello Russo department. O it was stunning, so beautiful! I allready decided what I was going to buy, but I still want to take a look at the whole collection in real life. A lot of the jewelry was a bit to much for me (but I don't have so much with big earrings, necklaces and bracelets). I came for the shoes and the crocodile sunglassess.
Yup, I got the sunglasses! They're mine now. Now the shoes.. Hmmm where the fuck are the cute black with silver strappy high heels? Let's ask the saleswomen. NOOOOOOOO! They only sell them in the H&M store in Amsterdam... SHIT!!! I didn't know that! It was not on the website! Okay, breath in... breathe out. Maybe a necklace with matching earings? Then I saw it, a hat with a bird and a lot of feathers. Shall I take it, because it's so pretty. But when will I wear this? But it's so Anna Dello Russo. But do you want to spend so much money on something you maybe never gonna wear? But, but, but... FUCK IT, I'M BUYING IT!!
And thanks to the security guys, I made it in time for my 10.30h class!
PS. you can check my items on my next post. I'll updated as soon as possible!!
04.42 AM. - Goodmorning, aren't you a ray of sunshine? Well, I got out of bed at 04.00 am, so I haven't seen the sun yet (and ofcourse, it's raining again). You think I must be crazy to get up at 4 o'clock in the morning, but it's for a good cause, because today is the release of ANNA DELLO RUSSO'S accessory/shoe line at H&M. Well I was planning to sleep a little longer, but I was allready awake from midnight. The first train is going in a hour, so I have to keep myself awake with some coffee and blogging.
While everybody think it's crazy to stand in line for hours in front of the H&M and spend a lot of money on a pair of shoes and sunglassess, I think it's an investment in the future. So mom and dad, when you're reading this on your fabulous holiday at the beach: IT'S AN INVESTMENT FOR MY (hopefully) CAREER IN FASHION haha, so don't get angry when I'm broke in a few hours.
But back to the collection of Anna Dello Russo. She's the editor and creative consultant for the Japanese Vogue. She's the ultimate passionate fashionista and a fashion maniac. Anna got an amazing taste in style and rumour has it she owns more than 4000 pairs of shoes. She is also having a whole apartment in Milan for just her clothing! Wow. I wish I had a closet like her, with a lot of haute couture. She's a little crazy, but I think it's wonderfull. Anna's clothing combinations are so beautiful, and extravagant... I sometimes wish I had the balls to wear it just like her. Maybe someday...
05.14 AM. - Okay, I have to leave in 20-25 minutes. No more coffee for me, otherwise I have to pee, and there is no time to pee when you're standing in line or when you're fighting for your shoes. Weather update: still raining. And I am wondering how I get through the day without sleep. I think I've slept for like 3 hours, so it's gonna be a long long day. But it's totally worth it! I mean I've been doing this for years now, I stood in line for Karl Lagerfeld, Stella McCartney, Viktor & Rolf, Cavalli, Jimmy Choo, Lanvin and Versace. It's like a little schooltrip for me, with a really nice goodie bag. So, let the bitchfight begin. And I say just like Anna Dello Russo: "You Need A Fashion Shower".
I'll update you if I got my items...
