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...

Leopard print ankle boots… oh how I love them

When 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...

Red trouser suit that roars…

Remember, 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...

My biggest joy in life is spending time with friends, which always means laughing a lot. As I cannot walk very far yet, my friend Lia came to me. It was lovely weather, not too hot, not too cold, although Lia was doubting her choice of knee-high trousers and sandals....

Bright yellow top with bell sleeves

Absolutely not everybody's taste, this bright yellow top with bell sleeves. When you enter a room, dressed like this, you definitely stand out. For me that is a bonus. I don't want to be invisible, quite the contrary. At my work we were psychologially dissecting each...
