The saffron shift dress I hate

The saffron shift dress I hate

It isn't often that I dedicate a whole post to a piece of clothing that I hate. And I hate this saffron shift dress for a lot of reasons. I will sum them up: Wearing a shoulder bag with it is not possible because it pulls the dress (evidence above). When you sit down...

Green jacket by Cabi

Green jacket by Cabi

You might think "Hmmm.. didn't I see this green jacket before?" Yes, you did if you are a loyal reader of my blog. Only not on my body but on Lisa, The Sequinist. When I visited her in London she gave me the two floral dresses you saw these past two weeks AND this...

Lemon yellow trousers with a green kimono top

Shopping my own wardrobe again. Let's see... the lemon yellow trousers you will remember from three weeks ago with the multicoloured shirt and from the time with my white summer jumper. Last year I combined the shoes from Marks & Spencers with a snow leopard...

Another floral summer dress

Another floral summer dress

In the post about my visit to Lisa in London, I told you she gave me two dresses. The long blue one you saw last week and here is the other floral summer dress, both by Cabi. I like the bold colours and the contrasting pattern on neck and sleeves. To me this is a...

Long blue dress and a cathedral

Long blue dress and a cathedral

Nice Dutch picture with this bicycle. The blue dress is a gift from Lisa (The Sequinist) and in turn it was gifted to her by the brand: Cabi. Only Lisa doesn't like floral dresses. "Don't bother sending them back", they said at Cabi, "Give them to somebody who does...

Lemon yellow trousers and multi-coloured shirt

Believe it or not, there was a time you couldn't take one decent photo of me. I always looked stupid in every photo. My, my... this blogging has taught me a thing or two. Of course when you have a great photographer (Kitty this time), it makes a big difference. I...

An easy blue and white striped dress in lovely Haarlem

An easy blue and white striped dress in lovely Haarlem

As you read last week, I scored 2 dresses at the second-hand shop Kat & Ko. This blue and white striped dress looks brand new. No marks, no fluff, the white is pure white and I love the neckline. I didn't think it would suit me but decided to try it anyway. One...

How to wear a sleeveless dress over 40 (or 50 or 60, whatever)

How to wear a sleeveless dress over 40 (or 50 or 60, whatever)

This pale yellow dress was meant to be used only to elongate another dress which I thought was a bit too short for me. As this dress has no sleeves I never intended to wear it on its own. Why? Do I think that you are not allowed to wear sleeveless tops or dresses when...

Green shirt with pink sequins

Green shirt with pink sequins

Again, a short post. The day was really all about catching up with my friend Helena and I sort of blackmailed her into taking blog photos. Only this was not the intention of the day so we didn't spend too much time on it. Although Helena might see this differently...

A furry jacket

Attention: I am now using a different method for the comment box. You can read more about it at the end of this post. This outfit is a bit of an odd thing. You see, I do not buy anything with fur as I don't need real fur to look good. And yet I bought this short...

Long green skirt

Long green skirt

Entering modern times with another midi skirt. Since I have big jumpers and know how to use them on skirts, I am less afraid of buying long skirts. This long green skirt was in the sale for € 60 which I thought was a very reasonable price. I bought it after having had...
