Exploring Retro Style

In fashion as I can see, it always comes back and then one minute later it’s not on the trend again then like that again and again so there are really so many choices in doing fashion.

Retro Style as I remember it was way back in the 1970’s or 80’s, something like that time.

I also saw some of my mom’s outfit way back and it is really like what’s on the trends today. So I can also say that my inspiration in trying Retro style is also my mother❤️

Just like this pictures that I saw in the google©️

The basic high waisted jeans, or mom’s jeans then to be paired with anything top, it can be a simple shirt, bodysuit, sweatshirts(if you are in a cold country) then put some belt on it and it will look like that and it will feel like you were in that era also.

Also you can add other accessories like the earings anything that is also used way back then.

So here’s how I do it the modern way⤵️⤵️⤵️

Then I edit my picture using the RNI Films, giving it a vintage look. ⤵️

Rome, Italy 2017 (Fall season)🍁🍂

Last time I went here in Rome(2015) I didn’t get to experience fall season because I already left around october that time.

Now that I got a chance to be here until the holidays here I love dressing up for this season, so new for me but little by little learning what to mix and match!😊

Like this, it was so cold but Mr. sun is up so it’s something just right for this day…

Amsterdam🇳🇱

Amsterdam is the capital of Netherlands.

It was a great trip, specially the day we arrived there, there was a festival – Amsterdam Gay Pride is a yearly local LGBT parade of boats in Amsterdam's canals, held on the first Saturday in August.

After the ride on the boat, next was the hop on hop off bus. It was 28 euro if you want to ride both, the bus and the boat. The ticket is also good for 24 hours👍🏻

Amsterdam is known for its artistic heritage, elaborate canal system and narrow houses with gabled facades, legacies of the city’s 17th-century Golden Age.

Its Museum District houses the Van Gogh Museum, works by Rembrandt and Vermeer at the Rijksmuseum, and modern art at the Stedelijk.

Cycling is key to the city’s character, and there are numerous bike paths.

Because there was a festival the day we arrived, the people was all around and it was fun because there is also a party🎉💃🏻

Anne Frank House is a writer's house and biographical museum dedicated to Jewish wartime diarist Anne Frank.

The building is located on a canal called the Prinsengracht, close to the Westerkerk, in central Amsterdam in the Netherlands.

And the foods😍 Because not all can be found in Italy, and I miss these foods I feel happy that I got to taste it again👌🏻

KFC ⤵️

Starbucks⤵️

Macarons⤵️
Because I love macarons I just need to try it here in Amsterdam👌🏻

Also in Italy there is no Forever 21, and because I love that store, I also go there in Amsterdam👍🏻☺️

After strolling in the city of Amsterdam, we went to Volendam.

Volendam is a Dutch town on the Markermeer Lake, northeast of Amsterdam.

It’s known for its colorful wooden houses and the old fishing boats in its harbor, which is lined with seafood vendors.

After that we went to our hotel, we stay there for a night and it was worth it, it was a nice hotel👌🏻
