A colleague at work did not know I was blogging…… She must have been the last person not knowing as I have told EVERYBODY. After finding out, she told me she is a photographer and would love to make pictures of my outfits. Can you believe my luck? So thank you Alexandra Psalti. For spending a Sunday in a cold park and actually liking to take my pictures. I still find it hard to believe and am very grateful. Love our coffee moments too.
Same shopping tour, same clothes, different steps, different street, no scarf. Great to link the two posts about the Nine Streets by two similar photos. By accident fooks, this was not a deliberate strategy, not a plan.
As you have seen in my previous post about the Nine Streets I was with my friend Helena, who is a sweet and patient friend. Not minding the numerous times she had to wait until I was done photographing. Continue Reading →
Herringbone is what this print is called. I learned that from Sylvia at 40+Style. I commented on her blog: “No…., herringbone is not for me”. And as usual I bought these skinnies the very next day. The times I have to eat my own words are countless. Continue Reading →
Well… that was rather a quick decision process. A new car. See the grin on my face? I could not stop smiling the whole day. It is an Italian car, an Alfa Romeo MiTo, off-white (creamy) with a black roof. Candy-like with a sporty / manly vibe. Continue Reading →
Hurray for skinnies. I love them, could wear them every day. They make my legs long and they feel like pjs. This particular pair of skinnies is by Max Mara (again…. Dan and me… we just love this brand).
Oh I have to tell you this before I go on. The sleeves of the purple Max Mara coat which you saw in my previous post were too long. The shop altered them for me. At the top of the sleeves, not at the bottom because then you would lose a button. They did it for free. Now that is Service. Continue Reading →
One of my colleagues was leaving the company and I went to a department store (the best) to buy her a fare-well present. That is a dangerous task for me. If I am exposed to many beautiful things I get sorely tempted. Best thing for me is not to get near a shop. Continue Reading →
For our second shopping trip we go to the “Negen Straatjes”: the Nine Streets. An area of old buildings, quaint little shops, lots of little lunch places and (for the time being) hardly any big stores. This is the best fun shopping area in Amsterdam. Which consist, as you probably already have guessed, of 9 little streets. Sometimes when I go there with a friend we can only cover 2 streets as we go from door to door. Continue Reading →
