Does this bag take the cake or what?

Does this bag take the cake or what?

The world is on fire and talking about outfits seems trivial. On the other hand I want to provide some light entertainment for all the women keeping social contacts to a minimum. As I am housebound, I have nothing better to do than to create blog posts anyway. The...

Bright pink jacket and leopard trousers

Bright pink jacket and leopard trousers

This photo does sort of jumps off the screen, doesn't it? The owner of the shop (kpa. Haarlem) suggested the combination of the bright pink jacket with the leopard trousers. I was only in the shop to look at the new spring items and chatted with the owner. No...

Orange snake print shirt

Orange snake print shirt

Personally I would call this orange snake print shirt, a python (print) shirt. But not everybody knows which snake they are after. And perhaps I am wrong thinking it is python. No doubt my friend Lisa (The Sequinist) will set me right as she knows these things. You...

Tiered ruffle skirt with a bright pink jumper

You might think it makes me look like a layer cake but I find this tiered ruffle skirt fantastic. It is by Hope Fashion UK and it is still available at £95 but the stock is low. Here is the link to the skirt. Although I take a size 14 in waist, I ordered the slim...

Wearing a bright pink floral blouse to an antique market

After hitting the Max Mara outlet, Daniela and I visited the Marella shop in Turin. We both like this brand and last time I was there I came away with really good items. This time I couldn't resist this bright pink floral blouse with matching pumps (both in the sale)...

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

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...

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

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...
