NYENRODE GALA







THE GREAT GATSBY So, like I promised, here are the photos from the gala we had before I went to Frankfurt. The gala was organized from the school where Paul studies and the theme of the night was from the movie 'The Great Gatbsy'. Since I had to read the book and have seen both movies when I was in London I know everything about the story and that time period. (I really hated it by the way. I've never had read such a depressing story.. And sorry, I din't like the movies as well, the 1974 nor the 2013 film was good I think). Besides I don't like the story, I do loved the styles and that was exactly what it was about this night. Wearing feathers in my hair and and on my clutch bag while glitters everywhere on my dress was fantastic, I loved it! The dress I was wearing I ordered last minute at MyTheresa, it's from Alice+Olivia and I love it soooo much! Besides you can wear it on a gala like this, it's also perfect with some sandals in summer. A real investment piece I can say so. 

I really have to say that everyone was looking marvelous. All the girls dressed up so beautiful and the boys did look so good in suits. Same for my Paul by the way and I have to admit that what they always say is so true. You can't resist a man in a suit! Like you can see in the photos my eyes were almost heart-shaped haha. But back to the night. After a delicious dinner, Paul and I started dancing all of the time. That's why I had to remove my hair accessories by the end of the night, (so like you see in the last photo) which was a shame but so much more comfortable. That night they had a DJ but meanwhile there was a saxophonist which was a really awesome combination. That's why we could't stop dancing I think. But when we danced all night long, also my feeds did hurt a lot. So around 2 am we were done with partying and had the best sleep ever in this beautiful castle the Bilderberg in Venlo where we were staying at. The next day we woke up early and I went to Frankfurt like I told you before. So, this was the beginning of the weekend what made the story I've already told you complete! I hope you love the photos and the story of this gala as much as I do! XX
