Varations with my Little Black Dress

You have seen my little black dress with and without a peplum. This time you will see the dress with necklaces and with my limegreen jacket which is a complete failure.

The necklaces are an obvious choice. Such a black background screams for bulky necklaces and I own quite a few pieces. The top one is made by a friend called Ina, who sadly died a couple of years ago.

Ina’s necklace with red beads, 2 jade and 1 copper pendants.

This green necklace is by Angela Caputi (have a look at the website). I bought it in Rome, knowing nothing about the brand. It has two gold-coloured round beads near my neck en flat black beads at the back. It is difficult to show the right colour of the green. The last photo shows it best.

Now for the failure:

Above and below, my failure. Trying to combine the LBD with the lime-green jacket and short booties.
I hate this look. Very unflattering.

Till Friday.

This one is harder to understand and in Dutch. It says: “as long as your hair looks right”. It is an expression we use to end a discussion or to put things in perspective.


Lime corduroy jacket

Because it is going to be a strange week with Christmas, I decided to post today. I will post again on Wednesday.

Lime is one of my favourite colours, much to my own surprise. Photographing my outfits made me realize that.
Just a couple of weeks ago I showed you my new lime jacket. When I bought it I knew in my heart it was totally superfluous……And yes it is. Because here is my old lime jacket. Different material (corduroy) and not my favourite as it is hard to combine.
In the near future I will show you this jacket with a beige/cream corduroy pair of trousers. Today with my trusted 7/8 black trousers and my “Hairy Harrys”.
The long necklace is made for me by a beads shop and the shorter one is made by Anja, the multi-talented girl.

Below the necklace I had made to match a pair of summer sandals (I know…. I am a mental case.)

Till Wednesday.

Anja put this one on Facebook and I fell in love with this style. Has nothing to do with fashion, but a lot with fun.
