You know that feeling when you go for a walk and suddenly step into the store of your dreams? Neither did I and my friend Theresa until we discovered RUM Amsterdam, this chic, intimate boutique in the heart of the 9 streets, my absolute favourite shopping area in Amsterdam.
There is something so inviting about this place, from the music, to the flawless interior design, to the extremely friendly service of the staff members, but of course, the brands you will find there also play a significant role in the successful story of this shopping spot.
To my surprise, one of my favourite Danish brands was there, By Malene Birger, but I also discovered some new ones, such as Dante 6 that I immediately fell in love with. The best part about the whole experience with the shop? We were allowed to play dress up and showcase our favourite pieces on the streets of Amsterdam. I went for an all-black look obviously, as the weather here still allows you to wear a leather jacket. I could basically turn this look into my uniform and never mind wearing it on and on. Maybe I would only replace the shoes and go for some flats, as these heels are surely not made for walking...
Here is the result of my shoot and you should stay tuned for Theresa's as well. It's going to be a knock out!
Huge thanks again to the lovely ladies responsible for the store that let us play around with the clothes. It's so nice to meet new creative, entrepreneurial people! Stay tuned for more to come and make sure you like their Facebook page. You HAVE to come and shop here whether you are visiting Amsterdam or live here already.
