You are going to be so bored with me in dresses haha. This flower dress is another score from the Max Mara outlet. It is a very peculiar dress. The front is straight like a sheath dress and the back is all big and pleated. Furtermore the side seams aren’t going straight down but move to the front. View Post
A cream dress by Sportmax. Yes, it is cream and not beige. There is a difference. I like this chic colour if there is a warm “undertone” in the cream, because then it is not too bad near my skin. Of course fuchsia is a far better colour for me, but when I see a beauty like this I cannot help myself. One BIG problem…. the dress is really too short. At least to my taste. The proportions aren’t right. View Post
One of those things… over the knee boots. Very “Pretty Woman”. Why? Because they are sexy. Why are they sexy? No idea. Most men find women in over the knee boots very attractive even though they cover up quite a bit. I have always liked them. Probably because there is a little bit of a common streak running through my character. Really only a little bit, but it is there and it sometimes
wants needs to get out. Which resulted this time in knee high boots. (No, I do not say that every woman who buys over the knee boots is common.) View Post
Saint Nicolaas (Sinterklaas as we call it in The Netherlands) needs a bit of explanation. It is a tradition from long ago. The story: a bishop, declared holy, called Saint Nicolaas, gives presents to little children on his birthday, the 5th of December. He arrives on a steam ship (yeah.. right..) from Spain. And he has helpers who climb down the chimneys (….) to deliver the presents in each house. The presents are put in the shoe of the children who have placed them near the fire place (… in an appartment?). Children put a carrot in the shoe for the white horse of Saint Nicolaas. It is a bit like Santa Claus at Christmas with reindeers. You can also read a funny explanation of this tradition on the site Stuff Dutch people like.
This is the good bit. Now the controversy, or better said, the battle which is going on around Saint Nicolaas. View Post
Another dress. I am living up to my promise, arent’t I? More skirts and dresses. This lavender dress by Max Mara is my best buy at the outlet in Turin this August. Oh and the boots as well: comfortable in spite of the high heel and I think they make every dress and skirt look modern. Which was my biggest problem: how to create a more modern look with dresses and skirts. View Post
