Leopard print ankle boots… oh how I love them

Leopard print ankle bootsWhen Kitty suggested to go to the Stedelijk Gymnasium to do a photo shoot on a Saturday morning I needed to look it up on the map of Haarlem. Oh there!?! Right in the centre of the city. I had sent her a photo of the outfit with the leopard print ankle boots and asked whether it would match the surroundings. As you will see, it did.

The weather was sunny with cooler temperatures. A coat was necessary so the off-white Burberry trench coat, my second hand deal, takes the stage as well. View Post

Orange patent leather ankle boots

Orange patent leather ankle bootsOrange patent leather ankle boots. An item not for the faint-hearted. Let me tell you, you get noticed when you walk into a room. Up till now the comments were very positive. Or people who don’t like them are scared of me and don’t dare say so 😂. These ankle boots will be great with my Diane von Fürstenberg tunic, but that outfit is for colder weather. Because the colour and shine of the boots leap out at you, I kept the rest of the outfit quiet. At first I was wearing my skinny jeans with the blouse. Changed it for these faux leather leggings, thinking you might be sick and tired of the jeans. (Although you will see them again next week.) View Post

Leopard print top with cream pleated skirt

Leopard print top with cream pleated skirtThis leopard print top is exactly right for the fall weather. Not too warm and not too cold. Usually in the Netherlands, this in-between-weather lasts for about a week, almost 2 weeks. Then we plunge into the cold. There are many in-between-clothes in my wardrobe and I never get the chance to wear them. Last Sunday when these pictures were taken was a horrible day; wind and rain and hail storms. My new photographer Kitty didn’t have time until a week later, my photographer Loes is on holiday and my husband Ron as photographer is out of the question. What to do? View Post

Red trouser suit that roars…

red jacket with tigers on jeansRemember, two weeks ago I showed you this jacket in my post Shopping in Amsterdam, Cornelis Schuytstraat? Nynke (owner of the shop Wynia) tracked the jacket down in my size. Cheerfully I went back to the shop, determined to buy only the jacket. But… as I looked at the trousers, I decided to give them a try. And me liky. Me liky very much. Richard, one of the stylists at Wynia, gave me black pointy pumps to assess the outfit better and I was sold. To the pumps as well, but they had to order half a size smaller for me. I am a difficult customer 😆 . View Post

Off-white summer coat, green dress and lots of surprises

Off-white summer coatJust looking at this off-white summer coat scares me. I imagine all sorts of stains on it, which will be very, very visible and spoil the “rich” look of this coat. Who in her right mind would buy such a thing? Me, said the idiot.

When it was full price I resisted it. A month later I bumped into a second-hand Burberry off-white trench coat which I bought. Only to find out two days later that the above coat was heavily reduced in the sale (at Studio LM). As a matter of fact it was the same price as the second-hand Burberry one. Regret set in immediately.  View Post
