Black wide skirt with raspberry jumper and polka dots

This skirt is from a thrift shop. It is by Erny van Reijmersdal, the same person who designed my cream jacket. I could not find such a skirt in the shops this winter. Apparently this style is out of fashion. A pity as this style suits me. To find this skirt (at a very reasonable price) made me very happy.

I have updated it with the polka dots tights, the small belt and the polka dot scarf which you have seen in my  big orange cardigan article. The jumper is so-called cashmere, but the price was too reasonable to be cashmere. I think. Nevertheless it is warm and very soft.

At first I only had the jumper, skirt and belt to create the outfit. Looking at the photos I thought it was a bit bare-looking. Then I came up with the tights and scarf and put other boots on.

A colleague with photographic skills took pictures of me at the office. So you see a different background for a change. There were nicer photos but they showed artwork and being in advertising, I know you cannot publish photos of artwork without the permission of the artist. Pity.

The photos were taken in a different part of the building from where I work. Don’t think for a moment that my office space looks like this. Us worker bees have to perform in much smaller rooms. Never mind, it is warm there and they have coffee. LOL

Below: I was hoisting up my skirt to show my polka dot tights. Just for fun. My husband said I could not publish this photo, but I think that is rubbish.

Below the outfit without polka dot scarf and tights and with other boots.

Below: see the bracelet? I thought that was a rather nice accessory.

Do you prefer it with or without the scarf?

Red La Dress dress with two different jackets

This winter it is all about new combinations with me. Spent all my money last year on spring, summer and winter wardrobe, so I have to be more economic now. Actually it is fun to find different ways of wearing your stuff.

I normally wore this red dress with a black and white polka-dot sash. Very nice but only suitable for “in between weather”. In The Netherlands it is often either cold or hot. Which meant I did not get enough wear out of it. With these jackets I can wear it more often. With cardigan and boots in winter and with cream jacket and shoes in fall or spring. This small belt makes the outfit more 2012/2013. At least that is what I think. I like throwing dust in my own eyes.

Anja came up with the cardigan combination and I thought of the cream jacket. Slowly getting there.
