anonymous asked:

Can you recommend any places/ cool (and cheap) things to do in Amsterdam? xx

Bagels & Beans for bagels and the BEST coffee, Vondelpark, Cat cafe Kopjes (you have to reserve a spot upfront though), vintage shopping (Zipper and Episode are my favourite stores), China Town, idk I generally just like hanging around in Amsterdam! Kalverstraat (the main shopping street) has some nice bookstores too, like the American Book Center and Waterstones. Also Concerto is a great recordstore

5 new editors’ picks to shop this week

Each week, we scroll through our new arrivals and choose five of our favorite pieces - a handpicked selection of this season’s best clothing and accessories to shop now or add to ‘your loves’ to shop later. View the best new products below and see why you need them in your closet stat.

1. Topman Ltd Blue Harrington Jacket

Ltd Blue Denim Harrington Jacket

Why You Need It: A cross between a classic jean jacket and a shirt jacket, this denim zip-up is unique but still completely wearable. With a corduroy collar and pockets, and a worn-in vintage look, there’s no doubt this will be your new go-to layer.

2. Topman Grey Salt and Pepper Quilted Hoodie

Grey Salt And Pepper Quilted Hoodie

Why You Need It: If you’re going to throw on a sweatshirt, you might as well make it one that doesn’t look like everyone else’s basic hoodie. This Topman style has the perfect cotton-poly blend for extra softness and quilted detail for a unique look.

3. American Apparel Vintage Houndstooth Zippered Flannel Shirt

Vintage Houndstooth Zippered Flannel Shirt

Why You Need It: '90s style is still going strong, which means you can wear this zippered flannel with your old pair of chucks and still feel current.

4. Zara Leather Rucksack

Leather Rucksack

Why You Need It: A simple, well-made leather backpack is not only stylish (and manly), but it’s also versatile. You can use it to tote your books, hold your work papers and carry your weekend trip necessities. Bye bye, briefcase.

5. Joshua Sanders Satin Panelled Slip-On Sneakers

JOSHUA SANDERS satin panelled slip-on sneakers

Why You Need Them: Slip-ons are arguably the most comfortable type of sneakers, plus you can dress them up or down, so we suggest you invest in a sleek pair for the warmer months ahead.
