For our second trip of shopping in Amsterdam 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. View Post
On the fourth day of my shopping tour through Amsterdam, my friend of that last day, called to say she would be late. As my feet were hurting anyway, we did not go to Amsterdam. In the afternoon we went for a coffee in Haarlem. Just before closing time we strolled past a shop called A guy named Sue which sold this jacket (to me…). Another day with a failed resolution (not to buy anything).
The jacket is very light, you don’t even feel you are wearing anything. It has a camouflage lining, but I hate camouflage print (sorry camouflage lovers). View Post
On my exploring tours through Amsterdam, I had to see the inside of shops too. Which is a bit too much temptation for me. In a shop called Dominio (click the British flag for English) they sold handmade Italian leather shoes and these brogues were half price. They are soooo soft.
If you want them too… they are still online. Full price now, but who knows, if you send them an email, they might do you a deal. They come in blue, brown and orange. I can vouch for their quality. View Post
