You know the great feeling before a road trip, right? We do and we love it! Nadina, Laura and Alies from Spotted Style and VOGUE got spotted on the road, driving Twingo!
Throw back to our Journey! The time of open road, full of fun and new ways.
Always telling you someone else’s stories, today we will open our Spotted Style diary and tell you one of ours. Interested to read about our Twingo Journey? We guess so! Read our Spotted Style insider!
Meeting many models in one day can be very challenging, taking in mind that we have only 24hours and sometimes they are not enough so we have to stay and work until late. Loving what we do, meeting new people every day, hearing their stories and making new friends while working is great! But there was a missing piece in our puzzle so the picture wasn’t complete.We only had to find the missing piece how to make our daily life and working at Spotted Style easier. Later on the same day, after the question popped up in our heads, while surfing on one fashion webpage, we spotted our missing puzzle! The new Renault Twingo car! BINGO!
It is all we need! Small, fast, economy car, perfect for city environment, easy to be parked in the center and beautiful looking! Offered in a line of different colors, we chose the blue one! And guess what….Lucky us! At the end of the day the keys of the new Twingo were in the hands of our Spotted Style editor! The fashion, girly car with new beautiful design providing safety joined our Spotted Style family!
Right on time, the next day is Saturday and the 1st day of our Spotted Style Model Tour. We are going visit a few cities in the Netherlands to interview models. Finding new faces and good models is a piece of cake when we have Laura Bausch as a model scout in our Spotted Style team!
It is still Friday and we have to plan and organize everything. Meeting models is already arranged and we have to pack our travelling items. Heading home to do it and after that going to the city center to drive around and try out our new Blue Twingo baby! Packing? Sorry, actually OVERPACKING! But this is why suitcases have wheels nowadays! And this is why we have the Twingo! We did not planned to add one more member to our Spotted Style team, but we couldn’t say no to Twingo! So it happened, love at first sight! Twingo starts working for us fulltime!
The packing process depends on where you are heading, your personal style and clothes needed for special occasions. We made sure that we remember to took the essentials with us- map, playlist with favorite music, journal and pen, laptops, iPod, sunglasses, cosmetics, reading items (fashion books and magazines) clothes, shoes and finally we will be ready to hit the road! Alarm is set for 8 in the morning and we are more than excited about our Spotted Style Twingo journey!
Saturday, 8am! Time to rise and shine and rule the world! Give us coffee and cheesecake and no one gets hurt!
Our 1st stop is a small boutique cafe in Amsterdam’s city center.
After having our breakfast we are heading to De Pijp to pick up Alies from Vogue. She comes nice dressed as always and 1st thing we spotted was a pair of high heels in pastel colors! We spot fashion dictators of good taste, remember! While checking the map to see which way we have to take to go to Haarlem, we remembered that we have GPS in the car which made our life much easier so we mapped the desired destinations and there we go!
Safe and sound, we arrived are in Haarlem with the Twingo! Picking up Laura and we are ready to start the interviews! The first meeting is at a lovely cafe in the center of Haarlem. Meanwhile we spotted many nice shops, so we felt obligated to check them and do some shopping! Don’t worry! We did not shop until we drop, because models were waiting. So after fast update of our wardrobes with new must haves for the season, 1st interview is done and it was a lot of fun! After one hour full of positive emotions and contagious laughing, we are excited and enthusiastic to hear the story of the next two models on the spotlight!
Done in Haarlem and heading to Hoofdorp. Today we don’t have to worry about time management because our new Twingo helps us a lot!
Until now: the road trip is fun, the models are amazing and we are happy and in love with the car! Heading to Rotterdam! We always stay in touch with our Spotted Style girls and we are happy to meet Monica again! She knows about our love for sweets so she is taking us to a pink pretty place for cakes! Happiness was only a cupcake away!
We finished our last interviews for the day in Amsterdam and added one more spot to our Spotted Style Places guide list. Designer’s clothes, amazing atmosphere and different concept… wondering which one is it? We will tell you soon! 1st day of the modeling tour was a great start of our new adventure full of fun, new people, new emotions and new ways. Meeting everybody made us happy but the new Twingo doubled our happiness! We made the best choice by choosing it and it is time to celebrate! Renault Twingo is fun and life is too short to drive boring cars!
And now new adventure is calling, so we must go!
Pack your things, travel light and go ahead! It’s time for the next road trip!
Special thanks to Maison PR and Renault Netherlands!
