Husband Ron has very good connections and lovely friends. One of them is Shoshanna who has recently changed career and is now a professional photographer. Ron asked her to make the photos for this post. We went to the old tram depot in Amsterdam, which is a bit of a run-down area. Very industrial which makes a nice contrast with the clothes I was wearing. The result of my visit to Dan (The Pretty Cute) gave me plenty outfits to choose from. As a matter of fact, I brought 4 outfits to the photo shoot. For this post I chose the checked black and white top.
Below: I think my face looks a bit like a laughing hyena in this picture, but we are always very critical of ourselves, aren’t we? The top and trousers are by Marella, which is a subbrand of Max Mara. Daniela found both items in the rack and thought they would be good for me. She could be my stylist forever. Honestly. A shame we live so far apart. The shoes you have seen before in this post and the bag is often used as my pop of colour with a black and white outfit.Below: this is what the outfit looks like with flat shoes. Very 1965 with the checked top. Flat shoes and me will always be a difficult thing due to my low arch and flat feet. As you can see the top is longer at the back and shorter at the front.Below: the long dangle pearl earrings are earrings my father gave my mother in the sixties. I had them repaired and adjusted to fit my thin earlobes. They were originally with a hook. However that would have showed the little hole in my earlobe is more like a slit, going nearly to the bottom. So I always have earrings altered to a pin-push earring, with the head of the pin covering the wide hole and with a bigger earring poussette at the back of my ear. The larger the poussette, the less the earring will tip over. The pearl necklace is something I have owned for ages. Below: I was showing Shoshanna that she had to be careful about the way the top was hanging if I put the bag over my shoulder. Also the necklace could be in an odd position. Both emphasizing the bosom haha.Below: this is the right way the top and the necklace should hang.Below: I just like this shot.Below: and the last one of the whole outfit. We had fun.Greetje
