Style Profile...Cindy van der Heyden, Amsterdam

Cindy van der Heyden Jeans

Today I've got some candy for you! Last weekend I shot the lovely Cindy of Come Over To The Dark Side We Have Candy and this girl knows perfectly how to wear black in an interesting way. So get your ass over to the dark side and enjoy the Style Profile plus the ideas for exploring Amsterdam.

Describe your personal style.

I always hate this question. I just never know how to answer it! Haha! Maybe you should decide for yourself when you check out my blog.

Source of inspiration.

Street Style sites, magazines and other fashion bloggers.

Style icons.

How did you first get interested in fashion and why is it important?

I have no idea. As far as I can remember I’ve always been an obsessed shopper. But I think my interest in fashion and designers developed when I started blogging.

Why did you decide to become a fashion blogger?

A couple of years ago I’ve started showing my looks on community sites like and and to my surprise I received a lot of really positive comments. When I found out about blogging I immediately signed up.
