Outfit + Event | AFW Downtown Bloggers Café - Retro Sonja
January 22, 2014

Hi lovelies!

EN: Those of you who like my blog on Facebook might have already seen this outfit, as it was featured in the ELLE streetstyle report of the Bloggers Café by Fashionchick. I was so honoured! This event was part of Amsterdam Fashion Week Downtown. There were inspiring presentations from Monique van Loon (founder of girlscene.nl and culy.nl), Yvonne Eijkenduijn (founder and blogger on yvestown.com) and Anouk Bos (founder of fashion blog network Creators of Desire), whom all achieved a lot with the websites/blogs they founded. I loved hearing them speak about their passion and they also had some great tips! Monique for example told us not to be demotivated by people who think your ideas won’t succeed. If you have an idea and you believe in it, go for it! Yvonne keeps everything on her blog close to herself and she adviced us to do the same. Anouk gave us tips using the 7 sins. The most important lesson of all: love what you do, work hard, be yourself and everything can be done!

NL: Degenen die mijn blog liken op Facebook hebben deze outfit misschien al gezien, aangezien ik ermee in het ELLE streetstyle report van het Bloggers Café by Fashionchick stond. Echt supergaaf! Dit was een evenement als onderdeel van Amsterdam Fashion Week Downtown. Er waren inspirerende presentaties van  Monique van Loon (oprichtster van girlscene.nl en culy.nl), Yvonne Eijkenduijn (oprichtster en blogger op yvestown.com) en Anouk Bos (oprichtster van het blogger netwerk Creators of Desire). Allemaal hebben ze veel bereikt met de websites/blogs die ze opgericht hebben. Het was dan ook heel leuk om ze over hun passie te horen vertellen en ook gaven ze goede tips. Monique zei bijvoorbeeld dat je je niet moet laten demotiveren door mensen die denken dat jouw idee geen succes zal worden. Als je een idee hebt waar je zelf in geloofd, ga er dan voor! Yvonne houdt alles op haar blog dichtbij zichzelf en ze adviseert andere bloggers om dat ook te doen. Anouk gaf tips aan de hand van de 7 zonden. De belangrijkste les: heb plezier in wat je doet, werk hard, wees jezelf en alles is mogelijk!

And some photos of the presentations. They are not that great, as my camera is just not for inside, but it gives you an idea of the event.

I hope you liked this post!

Love,

Sonja
