Amsterdam Day 2

Amsterdam Day 2

Amsterdam Day 2 Amsterdam Day 2Day 2 in Amsterdam started off with an early breakfast in the hotel restaurant. We knew it was gonna be a long day, so we stuffed our faces with scrambled eggs, croissants, cheese and fruit and then made our way to Forever21, where Wendy from Fashionchick.nl and two visual merchandisers, Joey and Marco were already waiting for us with empty rails – one for each of us.

Amsterdam Day 2We split into two groups, and what then happened can only be described as one of the most insane shopping experiences I’ve ever had.

We had so much fun dragging our rails through the whole store and filling them with a ridiculous amount of clothes. And if raiding three shop floors wasn’t good enough, Joey and Marco also took us to the stockrooms to do some more damage – bliss!

Now imagine us four girls carrying our huge yellow shopping bags back to the hotel…

Eventually, Iris’ led us to a cute little place in one of The Nine Streets where we refuelled in the presence of a very pretty waiter, before we rushed back to the hotel to get ready for Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week at the speed of light.

    Forever 21 stores are huge so I know how u felt!! The one we have here in Dublin is massive, I went recently and I was overwhelmed by the amount of things…at the end I managed to get a pair of jeggins and a hat which i can’t wait to style!!

      I’ve never been to any other Forever21, but the one in Amsterdam is definitely one of the biggest stores (apart from department stores) I’ve ever been to. I never realised you lived in Dublin…always thought you lived in North England…maybe Manchester 😉 Can’t wait to see the hat, though! I love hats, but don’t have the head for them 😉
