Fun drawing by Anja

Anja made this drawing especially for me. I like white boots. She hates them. LOL
Do you recognixe my grey boyfriendjacket?

By the way…. you may of course always leave a comment. But I know it is also hard work for you. So if you want to skip comments on the fun drawings and just enjoy them… fine by me.

Little black dress

Finally I have a little black dress again. I know… I have too much black in my winter wardrobe, but come on, a little black dress should be in every woman’s wardrobe.

You will get bored with this dress as you are going to see it a lot. Dressed with a cardigan, with a jacket, with big necklaces etc. And you will see failures too, but not this time. Today my LBD is in full glory.

I had it custom-made as I do not have a ready-to-wear figure, unlike what most of you think. And a little black dress has to be cut perfectly. My seamstress made this miracle work. You would think I have hips and a bum, haha. LOL
The dress comes with a separate peplum. A loose piece. Isn’t that clever? Thought of it myself and I am very proud of that. It is not often I have these great ideas.

The earrings are for the colour near my face as black is definitely NOT my colour, however much as I like it.

Above with peplum, below without.

















 

Do you see the shoe clip on the above photo right? Is by Heels Diva Shoe Accessories. You can order them online. They have feathers, bling bling, simple bows … you name it. Most of them can be clipped on the front of the shoe and on the side. The feathers I have are really just for on the side. Detail below.

 

Until the day after tomorrow.

Fun drawing

As this blog is about fashion AND fun, today I am not posting an outfit, but a drawing by my friend Anja.
I hope she keeps them coming as I love them.

So just for fun….:

Purple brown tunic

First of all guys & girls, I have to slow down. At this pace, posting a new outfit every day, I will be exhausted soon and my marriage might suffer. Having a more than fulltime job, it is not easy to take photos, choose the right ones, adjust them to a better size and write articles. Every day. I have underestimated the task.

So …. how about every other day? Will you still follow me? I do hope so.

Today I will show you my purple brown tunic. I can wear it “up” with black trousers and high heeled boots. Or “down” with jeans and flat boots. I can wear it with a blouse of with a T-shirt.

I especially like the back of the tunic. Most things I do not like at the back, but this one…hmmm, nice.
High heels are my preference (always), but if I want to go shopping my flat boots are a better choice and the outfit will still look nice.

What is your ideal combination with this tunic?


Above left: I did not take into account I was wearing jeans with a big belt underneath the tunic, so the tummy part of the tunic is sticking out a little.

Photo above: black pearls sometimes look purple. The pearl in my ring is more purple than the necklace and the earrings.

You have already seen a close-up of my high heeled cognac boots on December 7, so I am only showing the flat ones.
Till Tuesday.

Red flower skirt Max Mara

Last year I bought this flower skirt, red jumper and white blouse at Max Mara. Perfect brand. Pricy but you get well-fitting clothes.
Red is my perfect colour and the shape of the skirt is flattering for me as it gives me a waist.
Finally used my new small black belt as well.

I used to only wear it the way I bought it due to lack of fantasy. And I wore it with a black beaded necklace.
Anja thought the necklace made it look too old fashioned. I remember this brooch (put on a string) and she asked me to wear just a black top underneath the jumper. (Not wearing a top underneath it would get me arrested.)

When you see the last photo you will see the wrinkles in my neck again….pfff. I so much want to photoshop it… I don’t but it is soooo ugly. For those readers who are a lot younger than I am: …this does not necessarily happen to you too when you get older. A lot depends on your genes.
I just have to accept it.

Now look at these photos below. You’d think that my posture is quite reasonable. But it is not. See the difference between left and right.
It is so difficult to improve your posture. You cannot remember to stand straight the whole day. Such a pity as it changes your looks SO MUCH.

Which combination do you prefer? With the white blouse? Or with the black top?
