How to wear a skirt in a contemporary way

Black leather skirt white sweater purple necklace (2 van 11)To continue my search in how to wear a skirt in a contemporary way, this time: my black leather skirt. You have seen it three times before: twice awefully styled, when it was still ankle long (here and here) and once after I had it cut (here). It was a good decision to take the hem up, but I still styled it in a very classic way. Looking at other bloggers I came up with this outfit and I am beginning to like it. View Post

Max Mara coat and dress

Max Mara dress B&W (4)You will find 10 photos in this post as I decided to show you my Max Mara coat ánd dress at the same time. Fruit of my trip to Italy to visit blogger Daniela. Boy oh boy, did I go mad at that Max Mara outlet.

Ron (my husband) had asked me to show him in advance what I wanted photographed so he could “scout” a location. Unfortunately it rained this afternoon, so in spite of careful planning we had to look for a sheltered place. Which he knew. Of course. Great man. View Post

A black hat and burgundy coated skinnies

Burgundy skinnies black jacket and a faux fur hat 1Wearing a hat is a new thing for me. Never wore one before, until I got inspired by Judith, the Style Crone.
I have shown you her blog once before. She is a fantastic stylist and Hat Master. Every month lots of bloggers put a picture of themselves on her blog, wearing a hat. Of course this black hat is not a very daring one. Taking baby steps here. I did order another one, slightly more daring (don’t get excited, only slightly more daring). Will I ever wear them? I don’t know. I hope so, even though they make a mess of my hair. View Post

New Years outfit ? Christmas outfit? Or neither?

New Year outfit 2Is this outfit right for New Year celebrations? Or would it have been the right Christmas outfit? Or is it outdated? That is a question I have been asking myself a lot. Similar to last year when I asked your advice about my Christmas outfit 2012. As my blog was only a month old then, there were only a few comments.
This year I decided for myself that I liked this skirt and tried to update it with booties. I just needed a more modern top. This jacket is very classic, so it does not update the skirt. View Post
