LIKE TO HAVE: CLOTHES FROM ALAND SEOUL

Dress: 33 euro
Bag from Baggu: 37 euro
Espadrilles: 31 euro

TO GO: VT WONEN POP UP STORE AMSTERDAM

May 1, 2011

If you’re in Amsterdam or planning to go there, you need to focus your trip around the Haarlemmerdijk. Dutch magazine VT Wonen opened a temporarily shop last week. Huh, a magazine opening a shop? Yes. VT Wonen thought: our readers can get inspiration out of our magazine, but in our store they can actually buy the things the stylists of the magazine like. Why turn your magazine into an iPad app, while you can make it into a real life hotspot. I love it. Open till May 8th.
