Cosmopolitan X Levi’s Denim Night in Amsterdam!

I love reading Cosmopolitan, it’s easily one of my favorite magazines around. In their March issue they talked about their new #cosmocommits campaign and their collaboration with Levi’s. Levi’s created a white tee with the catch phrase “This Is What Confidence Looks Like“, matched with of course the perfect pair of jeans. A limited amount of Cosmo readers were invited to be a part of the Special Levi’s Denim Night and I was selected as one of them. (YAY) My best friend Marlies tagged along and we drove to Amsterdam.

The Cosmopolitan X Levi’s Denim night took place at a new Levi’s store (Leidsestraat 8). Right before the evening started I got a huge stain on my black jeans so I awkwardly had to hide that with my long black scarf. Great. You really can’t leave the house with me. Anyway. We were welcomed with snacks & lovely drinks (organic & delicious). The store looks beautiful & very clean. Upon walking in I immediately saw tons of things I loved. A little after 7 we were welcomed by Anne Marije, editor in chief of Cosmopolitan NL. She explained why we were there and they prepared a little presentation for us about strong women. Some beautiful, independent woman were asked to share their opinions on what confidence is to them. Vreneli Stadelmaier recently wrote a new book called “Fuck die onzekerheid” (which pretty much translates into “Fuck insecurity”). She shared some facts (women apologize way too often) with us and introduced her book. Sarah Reinhoudt (from Levi’s) and Sasha Burger (Fashion Director Cosmo)  then talked about finding the perfect fit and Levi’s new 501CT jeans.

While eating delicious snacks I was determined to find the perfect jeans. I always end up picking jeans that (sort of) fit while trying ’em on, but then end up being way too big after wearing them a few times. Or I would buy jeans that would fit, but are too long. For some reason I just can’t seem to find a good pair of jeans. One of the lovely Levi’s employees took one look at me and knew what size I was. I was a bit skeptical because how would it be possible that he needs 5 seconds to figure it out, meanwhile it takes me years. I tried on the High Rise Skinny Ankle and guys, miracles exist. I was wearing the perfect jeans. He just knew straight away what size I was. Needles to say, I was very impressed.

Every Cosmo reader got a 20% discount on everything in the brand new Levi’s store so I was stoked to pick up my new pair of jeans for only 79,96 euros! I love me some discounts. I mean, who doesn’t.

At the end of the evening I left with a stunning pair of new jeans, my “This Is What Confidence Looks Like” Levi’s shirt, a John Frieda conditioner (not too happy about this one because it’s specifically for blondes.. and I’m a brunette..) and the March issue of Cosmopolitan.

Confidence to me means taking risks even when there is a possibility to fail.

  18. You look gorgeous. Your hair is so shiny & straight. What a great message to spread. Confidence is key.

    • Thank you Carmen! I don’t know how it’s always this shiny, it’s a weird superpower my hair has haha. I straighten my hair that morning too! And I totally agree, confidence is key, believing in yourself is you being already one step ahead! xx

  19. I just love this tee and those jeans. This event seems like it was so much fun :)

  20. Whaaat! What kind of sorcerer was this attendant? I would never be able to guess anyone’s size- like not even my own, haha. That’s very impressive. And definitely chuckled at your stain dilemma. Story of my life. That’s me on every single date I’m on…sigh.

    And hmm, what does confidence mean to me? I think it’s not feeling pretty per se, but just really happy in how I’m coming across. It’s when I feel like the inside version of myself is coming out spot-on for once. If that makes sense?

    • RIGHT!!! That’s what I thought too. When he handed me those jeans in the color I wanted I looked at him like yeah yeah yeah there’s no way these will fit me. Turns out I haven’t worn a pair of more perfect jeans ever since. And hahaha yeah, you know how when you want to look good for a date, special event, anything? And those are the days you feel like you can’t get your makeup right. But then on the days you’re not even trying, everything looks perfect.

      I LOVE what you said about confidence. Thanks for sharing! xx

  26. Confidence is the ability to realizing your importance and finally saying ‘I love you,’ to yourself.

    You look like you had a great time! I love your jeans!
