One of the nice things of going abroad is buying clothes in different shops then you are used to. Often to find out they sell the same thing at home…. Globalisation has its down sides. The time I bought this black Tara Jarmon dress was when we visited Gent in Belgium. Not really far away, just popping over the border, but still abroad. Tara Jarmon is a very good brand and not very well known in The Netherlands. Normally I don’t wear things like this as it can make me look like a stick. I planned to hoist it up until it was a tunic, which turned out badly. It looked as if I had several fat bulges from waist to bottom. Not flattering. View Post
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.
Until the day after tomorrow.
Today I was at Anja’s and she photographed this black dress I had on. But we were indoors and it was really bad weather, so the photos are not such good quality. And cropped to all sizes.
She had the Dutch singer Caro Emerald on with her number A night like this. See and hear her music here:
So I could not keep my feet still. We had fun. The necklace is jade (almost Emerald green, what a coincidence). And Anja bought me another scarf, which I tried on. This girl is spoiling me.
