I had to publish this Sarah Pacini suit today. You see, in The Netherlands, today (December 5) we celebrate Sint Nicolaas, who is a sort of a “colleague” of Santa Claus. And Sint Nicolaas has helpers, “black Peets”, who wear wide trousers.
The tradition dates way back when the bishops in Spain (were Sint Nicolaas is coming from….) had Moor servants. A lot of people nowadays are against portraying black Peets like this. They say it is discriminating. Difficult discussion. Of course it is not meant to discriminate, but still…
As I say, a difficult discussion as this feast is the highlight of the year in our country.
As you will see from today’s outfit, it resembles a black Peet outfit. Which is why I would not dare wearing it today.
I like this outfit a lot. It is the same sweater as I wore a couple of days ago with the red cowboyboots.
And the shoes are the same as shown yesterday.
It is very comfortable and the “bow” at the back is perfect for my figure.
The green bag is for the “pop” of colour. As is the necklace.
I have noticed from uploading all these outfits, that I have a lot of black clothes. Also a lot of tops which are all cut the same way at the top at the back. Strange… I should vary a bit more.
Above: see what a bodyshaper can do? LOL
Hope all you Dutch readers get lots of presents from Sint Nicolaas tonight.
