Mum, Haarlem and Modemuze OBA, a Fashion Exhibition

Mum and me in HaarlemThis week a little bit of everything if you don’t mind. Last Thursday I went to a costume and accessories exhibition at Modemuze OBA, together with fellow Instagram fashion blogger Carin (catoinamsterdam). She is hugely successful on IG and got invited to the exhibition. Would I like to join? Of course!! And I also want to tell you about my mum visiting us in Haarlem on a wonderful sunny day in March. 

My mum lives an hour drive away from us and usually I fetch her and Ron takes her back. Last Sunday he did both trips so I could relax. Bless him. My mother is 88 and in good health. OK there are some health problems but not major ones. She still lives on her own (dad died 10 years ago) and she can still walk although not long stretches. Only recently she decided that cycling wasn’t a good idea anymore and better get the aid of a rollator than risking a fall.

Above and below: on a terrace in Haarlem, enjoying coffee, cake and sunshine. Unbelievable, it was March 12 and I could take my coat off.

Mum

Below: oh… spring is but a short while away.

Haarlem

Below: spotted this really beautiful lady and ran after her. Politely asked whether she would like to be on my blog. Luckily she said yes.

Street Style

Below: there were more people with our terrace idea. Market square of Haarlem, with our old town hall in the background.

Haarlem

Below: 20 meters more to the right, another full terrace on the Market square. In summer all these trees look so lovely.

Haarlem

Below: the people on these terraces have the big Saint Bavo church as their view.

Haarlem

Below: this used to be the former meat market (this building is from 1603, but there was meat trade on this spot from as early as 1386).

Haarlem

Below: this outfit was not a good idea. The top is polyester and was clinging to my body, right at my stomach and belly area. As soon as I saw the photos (this is the best one, not showing anything) I took the top to a friend to enjoy. Perhaps the outfit isn’t bad, but I have got better ones. So why wear this?

Green top, Denham jeans, black and white shoes and bag

Below: the shoes (brand: Maruti) you have seen before in this post where I am dressed like Charlie Chaplin. The bag is a present from my friend Marianne. Another present (so lucky).

Below: back at our place. My mother is still stylish and dresses with care. My father always did as well. No wonder I have a fascination for clothes. If you want to see the whole living room, you can.

Mum

It was a very pleasant day.

Now from Oda (my mum’s first name) on to Modemuze OBA. As I said, Carin and I met at the Public Library of Amsterdam for the opening of the exhibition of rare costumes and accessories. As a lot of the costume fabric is fragile it isn’t always possible to display them. Which is why Modemuze.nl was created: an online platform where you can see thousands of fashion pieces from 12 museums. With explanations and descriptions. Unfortunately for my English readers nearly everything is in Dutch. But I can offer you this English explanation and of course the pictures are great to see.

Below: let me start by showing you some stunning pieces. Comme des Garçons Spring/Summer 2014.

Modemuze OBA

Below: two pictures of a dress by Jef Montes, Autumn/Winter 2015-2016

The accessories were mostly from the Bag Museum and I have already shown you their stunning pieces before, here and here.

Oh before I forget, here is Carin, always great fun to be with her:

Carin (Catoinamsterdam)

Below: and who did we run into? Misja, my friend the Street Style photographer. You saw her in this post A jeans jacket at a bloggers shoot.

Misja and Carin

Below: Carin and me (I had a problem with my computer which is why this photo is vague).

Greetje and Carin

Below: there were quaint pieces as well, like this bustle, an exact replica from the original (1870-1880). Carin and I wondered how the women wearing this, sat down. Carin decided they didn’t. I thought they might sit on stools.

Modemuze OBA

Below: then one of our favourites, the Leopard Gown (1973), a very heavy gold leather dress by a famous Dutch designer and artist, called Fong Leng. Yes, it was worn. By her principal client Mathilde Willink.

Modemuze OBA Fong Leng dress

Below: this is Judikje Kiers, director of the Amsterdam Museum, where the Fong Leng dress is from. I loved her dress and her choice of shoes and professional bag. It is probably great nonsense as I hardly spoke with her, but I felt I met a kindred soul. And I so want that dress… I love a robe manteau.

Fong Leng dress

As you know I love to photograph real women and there were many lovely specimens.

Below: I was especially attracted to the shoes.

.Modemuze OBA

Below: very much the part.

Modemuze OBA

Below: again the shoes caught my attention first with this lovely lady.

Modemuze OBA

Below: the jacket… !!!

Modemuze OBA

Below: this outfit looked really good.

Below: part of the exhibition hall.

Modemuze OBA

Below: the woman on the right was the lovely PR lady who invited us, Désirée de Jong.

Modemuze OBA

Below: that necklace!!! Being a big necklace lover, I was drawn to this lady like a moth to a flame. She told me she bought it in Spain and it had been worn at an exhibition in London. I told her if she ever got tired of it, I would buy it from her. No chance haha.

Modemuze OBA

Below: one last picture of this gentleman’s jeans (an acquaintance of Misja). Not only the women made an effort.

Modemuze OBA

Lots of pictures this time. Hope you enjoyed it.

    What a fabulous exhibition for us clothes lovers!! I think it would be extremely fun to be able to parade around in some of those outfits (as long as I didn’t have to climb any stairs–ha ha)
    And I always love that you get photos of other women, Greetje!! It’s exactly my cup of tea (people watching that is…)
    Your mum is quite lovely!! It just warms my heart to see other women feature their mothers also! Especially when they enjoy wearing nice clothing!!
    Thanks for the fun this Sunday!!

      I love my mother dearly and I think it is fun to feature her. But she doesn’t like being photographed. So I cannot make it a series like you do. Besides that would be copying a concept.
      The exhibition was actually to draw attention to their vast online platform of costumes.

    What a beautiful blog post Greetje! Your mother is such a chic lady, the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree, as we say in Dutch 😉
    It was fun to go to the opening with you. I wish we could have tried on some of the dresses, especially the Fong Leng!! And I’m still dreaming about some of the cute handbags.
    Xx Carin

    • 19 March 2017 / 18:26

      Since I have been at the Bag Museum I often dream of cute handbags haha.
      We should try and find more of these fun happenings to go to.
      And I think the expression is: She’s a chip off the old block.

      • Carin
        19 March 2017 / 18:30

        Haha, yes it is! But it doesn’t sound as nice as the Dutch version!
        Yes, we must definitely go to more events like these. I will keep my mailbox in the holes ?

        • 19 March 2017 / 20:00

          I should have known you knew the right expression. After all, you lived in England. You must have gone: DUH… hahaha.

  3. 19 March 2017 / 17:39

    Loved your photos…particularly the Leopard Gown! Your mother is very trim and stylish.

      My mum always took great care of her weight. And so do I. I have to with all those clothes in my closet. Would be such a waste of money to change This also applies to my mum although she isn’t half as bad as I am.

    Thanks, Greetje, for a wonderful post! I so enjoyed ‘meeting’ your mom, and all the photos from Haarlem and the costume exhibition. I hope someday to visit your homeland, and in the meantime, The more photos, the better.
    Spring greetings from Houston, TX, USA!

    • 19 March 2017 / 20:05

      Oh good. Ron said that there were too many photos for one post. Glad you prove him wrong. I somehow wanted both items to be in this blogpost. Next week there will be a lot less photos (for you: sorry).

  5. 19 March 2017 / 19:59

    Your picture with your mother reminded me how I sat with my mother on the same spot, Grote Markt Haarlem, 2 years ago. (See my book: Bitterballen, hoe een demente ex-politica haar euthanasie bevocht). I hope you will have her for many years at your side.

    • 19 March 2017 / 20:06

      Sounds like you had a hard time. It is devastating to see your mum or dad lose their mind. I will read your post and hope my mum will never have to go through that. Fortunately the signs are good.

  6. 19 March 2017 / 20:18

    The bustles (and other types of petticoats etc) have always made me wonder how women went to the bathroom!
    I think Carin might be right about ladies just standing…maybe they also fainted a lot?
    We are so lucky to be free to wear comfortable clothing if we choose to.

      You are so right. There are a lot of things we should our great grandmothers be thankful for. I praise Chanel for comfortable clothes.

  7. 19 March 2017 / 20:36

    What a stylish bunch at that exhibition! How nice to be able to sit out on a terrace this time of year. That square in Haarlem is gorgeous. I avoid most polyester tops for the same reason! 😉

    • 20 March 2017 / 20:13

      The weather has changed since that weekend. More rain and wind now. Oh well, the rain is very good for all the plants and the garden. The exhibition is about fashion, so everybody did their best to fit in I think. They are fashion lovers anyway of course.

    19 March 2017 / 21:15

    Loved all the pictures…. your Mother, the buildings and the clothes.
    Love you in the black and white. I think you looked lovely in the green top too, but I know what you mean about having “better” outfits. I am trying to go through my clothes and keep only the things I love!

    • 20 March 2017 / 20:15

      I still have to go through that exercise, but I am always afraid that the one item I threw out would have been perfect for the next item of clothing I am buying. Which is of course rubbish. Getting there but too slow.

    19 March 2017 / 21:56

    I agree Greetje Judikje Kiers looks a very stylish lady, I love the outfit she is wearing in your photograph.
    Lovely to see your mum feature in your blog, just in time for Mother’s Day which is next Sunday, here in the U.K.
    I like the black and white of your outfit too, we have been lucky to have such weather during March.

    • 20 March 2017 / 20:18

      The weather is quite different now, isn’t it? You know what we say: good for the garden. And yes Judikje is very stylish. I wanted to ask her “where did you buy that dress? Was it expensive? Is it still available?” But I didn’t. Of course I didn’t.

  10. 19 March 2017 / 22:02

    Oh this was fun! How I wish I had been there with you. What a great evening and photographs!

    Thanks so much for sharing with us.

    bisous

      Just as I always want to be at your dos. The vintage sales, the meetings with Melanie and Sue.. That is the disadvantage of blogging. So far apart.

    19 March 2017 / 22:02

    Hooray! Another delightful adventure in Amsterdam that creatively mixed fashion, architecture, home decor, stylish friends, fellow chic citizens, and best of all your own beloved mother Oda!! Goodness Greetje, you have such an authentic way of including us in a days experiences through your photos and story line. It’s really engaging!!
    You look quite good in green but if the top fails to spark joy it’s time to move on. Your mother clearly passed on her love of styling and attention to detail. I like her navy and polka dot top and navy quilted jacket. She seems to favor a monochromatic chiqueness (?)
    Your home furnishings are so bright and modern! The color of your couch is a fabulous fuschia and I love the complimentary striped chairs! Your art is a very eclectic mix as well.
    Thanks for another fun tour!

    • 20 March 2017 / 20:25

      I wasn’t sure whether I should publish both events in one post, but somehow it fit. As you say I try to take you on a tour. Perhaps that is my niche? Being able to engage through this? I hope so as I love doing it. I am still busy finding my style in blogging. It is changing organically.
      Mum doesn’t favor monochromatic really. This was just a coincidence. Usually she has a top with a print. And of course matching trousers and shoes. She doesn’t like skirts anymore. She finds trousers much easier.
      Our living room changed from “Brocante” to modern and colourful a few years ago. It was tricky and we got some help but we really like the result. This is us. And we don’t get bored with it either. The art bits is mostly thanks to Ron.

  12. Carol
    19 March 2017 / 22:17

    Once again a wonderful post. I am going to have to disagree with Ron this time…I so enjoyed seeing the photos of the market, and the amazingly stylish women at the exhibition including you. I am 1/16th Dutch and I don’t have a speck of the style of all you women.
    Your mum in her stylish monochrome outfit looked wonderful against your bright living room. Did you choose the colors because winter is long and dark at your latitude? (I am showing my geographical ignorance here.)
    Thank you.

    • 20 March 2017 / 20:31

      Oh good, glad I followed my gut feeling and went ahead with this post. Ron is often right, so I do not dismiss his opinion without careful thinking.
      As for the stylish ladies… there are plenty of completely non-stylish ladies in The Netherlands. They just don’t make it on my blog haha. Our winters are indeed quite long, from October to March I would say. Although March and April can still be cold, they can also be beautiful. And they hold the promise of spring, more light.
      October can also be very nice and hot. Or not. We have quite a bit of rain, which is why this country is so green. Be aware… where ever it is green, there is rain.
      We chose the colours because we are mad about colour and about Designers Guild. The salesman in the shop tried to talk us into a grey couch with colourful cushions. When he saw we didn’t go for it, he helped us very well with choosing the colours and furniture.

    19 March 2017 / 23:38

    Just the sort of post I love! Lots of pictures, great for people watchers like me, like your black and white outfit – just before I read your post I had already dressed in the same look! Great minds think alike!

    • 20 March 2017 / 21:20

      You are so right… great minds do think alike haha. Glad you liked this post. I wasn’t sure.

  14. 20 March 2017 / 03:25

    Oh that was a fun post.

    First your lovely mother. She looks very stylish.

    And those pictures of Haarlem. I miss it.

    And Misja and Carin and that wonderful exhibition. How I wish I could have been there with you. Can’t wait to join in the fun in June.

    And then those wonderful photos of all the stylish women there. Some fabulous style!

    • 20 March 2017 / 21:22

      So glad you enjoyed it. I am looking forward to June.

  15. 20 March 2017 / 08:31

    I want to go there too! Fabulous! I immediatly recognising Fong Leng and Comme de Garcons! I was a fan of both designers in my puberty! And I love your ,,streetstyle,, photos! What a wonderful way to spend your day!!

    • 20 March 2017 / 21:26

      Don’t forget to check out their online platform Modemuze. So much information, so much to see. The exhibition itself is very small. It is more a happening to put Modemuze as a platform in the spotlight.

    20 March 2017 / 09:25

    Some wonderful photos and I like to have met your mother, who seems a very interesting person. I like your booties. And I like that combination of jeans and green. I also like the polka blouse of your mother and the nice look of your friend Carin.

    • 20 March 2017 / 21:27

      Oh yes Carin is always a picture perfect. She knows how to dress. My mother still has a keen interest in clothes. So I know that interest will not diminish when I grow older haha.

  17. 20 March 2017 / 09:58

    Great pictures of the exhibition! It shows fantastic dresses indeed…
    I am glad to see your beautiful city again! Those terraces look really crowded…everyone wants to enjoy sunny days here too!

    Your mum looks a friendly lady…

    • 20 March 2017 / 21:29

      My mum is totally different from your mum, but also very interested in clothes. I am sure that I will still need money for clothes when I grow older haha.

  18. 20 March 2017 / 10:08

    The first woman you photographed is stunning. And I recognise the vintage lady, I follow her on instagram!

    • 20 March 2017 / 21:32

      Wasn’t there a song (from Annie?): “It’s a small world after all, it’s a small world after all..” etc And I totally agree that the woman in the black and white coat is stunning,

    Hi Greetje
    Fabulous post, you and your mum look wonderful, its so nice to see a lady with her mum – am very envious!
    I just love the photos of Dutch ladies, you seem to have that extra fun bit of style we English lack!

    • 20 March 2017 / 21:35

      I am so glad to be able to spend time with my mum. I also call her every day for half an hour. Unless she is out galavanting haha.
      Dutch women don’t have more style. It is just that I only show you the ones who have. There are stylish women everywhere.

    This post was so much fun. The photos of ‘street style’ and art exhibition attendees was so interesting. Can’t wait to check out the link to the museum clothes. Thanks for this one.

    • 20 March 2017 / 21:37

      Do check out the links to the bag museum too. That is such a fun museum. If you ever come to Amsterdam, don’t miss it.

  21. 20 March 2017 / 16:27

    I agree with you not to wear the top when it gives you these flaws. Nevertheless, the outfit idea is right, but if the top clinches it has to go. It’s for younger people who want the clinch to show off their flawless body with a top that has flaws.

    The golden coat is calling my name. The photos are great!

    • 20 March 2017 / 21:39

      That golden dress is really heavy. The person who wore it, Mathilde Willink, was a walking piece of art. She was very famous and always wore dresses from this designer Fong Leng.

  22. Carol
    20 March 2017 / 18:03

    Your mother is very attractive and dresses beautifully. I am a conservative dresser myself but love to see outfits on people who are freer and more flamboyant in their dress. Enjoyed seeing all the outfits and women you posted.

    • 20 March 2017 / 21:42

      I will pass your compliment on to my mum. She will be pleased. I ave to say that my style has evolved since I started blogging four years ago. I am still rather conservative, but I am getting more adventurous every day.

  23. 20 March 2017 / 22:10

    Oh WOW. I don’t know what else to say?! I loved the pieces from the exhibition (the gold leopard dress… I will dream of that tonight when I sleep). I loved seeing your Mum! I loved seeing you and Carin together with your irritatingly perfect legs. I think you and Carin should have stolen that woman’s amazing necklace and just RUN. With your legs, she’d never catch up to you. You need that necklace.

    The photos of Haarlem are also beautiful. Like England, on a nice sunny day, EVERYONE is outside to soak it up!

    Thank you for taking us on another one of your adventures, Greetje! xx

    • 21 March 2017 / 06:10

      Your comments always make me feel so good about myself. As if I have done a terrific job. Thank you for that. Alas, stealing the necklace is not my thing. I am honest to the bone, would never do anything like that. But it is worthy of being stolen. I am always amazed when I am in England and the temperatures are just about 15 degrees and everybody is out in tanktops and shorts. Brrr too cold for me.

    21 March 2017 / 00:32

    Your mum is lovely! Got a laugh that she has just decided to stop cycling?
    Haarlem is beautiful! Loved the pictures. I have been to the Netherlands 3 times mostly Amsterdam and fell in love with it on my first visit. I was 13 at the time…way back in the dark ages. Haha.

    • 21 March 2017 / 06:12

      It is about time you came for another visit then. Haarlem is smaller than Amsterdam, but equally beautiful. Very well preserved. Haarlem also won the award of Best Shopping town. Three times.

  25. 21 March 2017 / 00:41

    Always a full menu here! Loved all of these photos, and so glad you took them all to share. Loved seeing Carin’s style, your mother so elegant in your fabulous room, yes i did click back for the whole room, it is spectacular. I would feel so happy to live there, so bright and well done. Its that style thing you have Greetje- it is everywhere.
    Oh those shots of the costume exhibit! I am swooning here. They have these sorts of shows here in NYC, from time to time, but no photos allowed!
    Love the emerald green blouse, but I trust you, if it is not comfy,
    give it to someone else. it sure is pretty. Also LOVE the dalmation shoes!

    • 21 March 2017 / 06:14

      Carin and I were invited to the exhibition before the opening with the purpose of taking photos. They wanted free publicity and that is what they got in return.

    21 March 2017 / 03:36

    What a great post, thank you! We could travel around the world just visiting fashion and textile exhibitions. I hope to visit the Netherlands again someday, my trip to Amsterdam last fall was completely amazing. Cheers to you and your mother!

    • 21 March 2017 / 06:47

      I love Amsterdam. It is the city where I beling. The vibe of freedom, the pun of the Amsterdam people. So nice. Fortunately Haarlem is only 20 minutes away from Amsterdam, either by train or car. But I do miss Amsterdam. It is just such an expensive city to buy a house.

  27. 21 March 2017 / 12:51

    Such a lovely post (as usual!), I love to see all those women looking fabulous, particularly your mom which is a gorgeous lady!. Really stunning square, the buildings, the terraces, the relaxed atmosphere, the sun!, everything looks so lovely!
    And so interesting exhibition, and the lovely Carin, and all that stylish ladies!! wowww, fabulousness!
    besos

    • 21 March 2017 / 21:32

      All old cities look marvellous in the sunshine. Not that much sunshine here in The Netherlands though. But if there is, we enjoy it.

  28. 22 March 2017 / 17:54

    Very much enjoyed my trip with you (since I couldn’t be there in person, its the next best thing). What a fun day you spent with Carin, two fashionista’s in fashion heaven. I must say before I forget, those jeans on the gentleman look as if he fell inside a paint can, haha (not to my liking, but that’s just me). Fabulous fashion all around.
    As for you, love those shoes! They look comfy yet very stylish. And your mom, what a darling lady, you can definitely tell where you got your fashion sense from.

    • 23 March 2017 / 14:00

      Not just my mother has a love for clothes. My father did too. He used to look really distinguished. Spent quite a bit of money on it (in his younger years). So I have every excuse in the world. It is not my fault, it is genetic haha.

  29. 22 March 2017 / 21:08

    Oh wow I loved this post Greetje – your Mum is adorable. As for your place OMG the colours look amazing.
    So nice you get to meet Carin again – I would so love to meet her one day too – she has been such an inspiration of mine with regard to Instagram – I love her cute little pictures. Your green shirt was pretty – such a shame the photos were not good as you say – I bet your friend whom you gave it to is super pleased!

    I bet they do…shame I don’t live closer – oh and am a ton taller – hehehe.

    Your messages came through tip top for me – just so you know as I know you were a little worried!

      My site was very slow in materializing. And very slow in publishing the reply on a comment. Took about a minute. I think it is solved now, but I am not sure yet.
      Living more closely together would have shopping-together benefits too.

  31. 23 March 2017 / 20:41

    Yes – re shopping – I am about to set up a Shopaholic Zurich club – you have to come once that is set up 😉

    Greetje, my husband and I (sorry to sound like the Queen!) sat outside the cafe in your second photo a few years ago, just as you and your Mum did. We’d caught the train from Amsterdam and walked from the station along a road having new cobbles put down, turned left into the market square and joined all the other people enjoying the unseasonal sunshine.
    Haarlem is a lovely place, but then so is all of your country! As for your hot chocolate…!

    • 24 March 2017 / 06:29

      How lovely. Must have been a surprise when you saw these photos. Brings back happy memories, right? Yes Haarlem is a lovely town, very well preserved. I am glad you had good weather when you came to visit. Always a tricky thing in The Netherlands. Did you have hot chocolate WITH whipped cream?

      • Gee
        24 March 2017 / 08:45

        But of course. Is there any other way?!

  33. 26 March 2017 / 16:16

    Another great post, Greetje. Interesting topics, good storytelling and fab pics. Loved it!

    • 26 March 2017 / 17:12

      Wow, coming from you, great compliments. Thank you.

  34. 27 March 2017 / 02:20

    Fun fun fun! I love to see clothing as art. It looks like a beautiful setting too. Thanks for showing us some of the other ladies there. So interesting to see people from other parts of the world. And of course Carin! Julia

    • 27 March 2017 / 14:58

      It was a fun experience. And I was impressed with their online platform featuring thousands of costumes and accessories.

    I have a terrible cold at the moment, so it was lovely to do a virtual tour of Haarlem in the sunshine, and then a terriific costume exhibition. I love the Fong Leng dress too. Re the bustles – I think the were engineered to fold up when you sat down. A bit origami like. I can’t imagine all those Victorian ladies standing around all the time. Hello to your Mum who looks very good for her years, and thanks for a view of your sitting room. I love the bright rainbow coloured chairs, and the magenta settee. I’m not showing this to my husband or he will get ideas!

      Haha Trish, we redid the living room five (?) years ago and in the end it cost so much money that I said: “We will die in this setting as we haven’t got the funds to do this another time haha. Fortunately we don’t like change much and love this room.

        It’s a wonderful room, full of optimism, colour and light!

    You mother is lovely! My mother, who turns 80 tomorrow, would never allow me to put her photo on my blog – she hates having her photo taken.

    I adore the colour of your couch!! Such a beautiful jewel tone that brightens the whole room.

    You are becoming quite a good “street style” photographer. I really enjoy seeing what women are wearing in different countries at events like that. I would very much enjoy that exhibit – what stunning pieces of wearable art!

      Congratulations with your mother’s birthday. I hope you will have a lovely day. And my mother hates having her photo taken as well. But I slowly got her used to it. She follows my blog so is familiair with the concept, which helps. And I take flattering photos haha.|
      Are you following the blog of my friend Misja? (misjab.nl) She is a street style photographer and only portraits people who are over 40.
