Turin and Daniela

Turin with Dan Oct 2015 (45)_LRWhat can I say? Visiting Dan in Turin is such a delight. The flight is only  1 1/2 hour, cost just over 100 euro (return flight) and takes me to a friend who is always so happy to see me. As I am so happy to see her. Amazing that such a deep friendship can come from just blogging. English is not our native language and expressing yourself is so important to get to know the real person. Nevertheless there is a soul connection which covers the blancs in our conversation. View Post

Red pumps

red black and white sequin top new_LRAfter carefully examining my bank accounts, I had to admit… the bottom of the treasure chest was clearly showing. Then I saw online the most divine pumps in one of my favourite stores (Calzature) in Utrecht, and said to husband Ron: “Just as I found the perfect red pumps, my size, 50% off, I haven’t got any money left. Otherwise I would have gone to Utrecht to pick them up”. To my surprise he replies: “Oh, when we go to Utrecht, we can have coffee with Nicky”. (Nicky is my stepdaughter). Don’t you think he is an enabler? I mean… as if I need any encouragement.  View Post

Eye blouse worn on skinny jeans

Eye blouse 1 Right ladies and gentlemen …a photo session with my husband (Ron)… what a treat. Normally Ron just clicks a couple of shots (5 or 6) and is bored to death with it. “Is it alright now? Is it done?” and off he goes. This time he was really interested, suggested a nice environment and took loads of pictures. Even accepted my help when we did a couple of shots not on automatic. It would be very nice if we could continue this. Subject of this shot was an eye blouse worn on skinny jeans. Location: Landgoed (Estate) Beeckestijn, a beautiful estate where your dog can run free, believe it or not. View Post

My red peplum top

I was so pleased with this red peplum top. This is really how I always want to look, but I do not very often achieve it.
My hips are small and so is my bum. Which is not that bad really, as it is easy to hide.
To let you think I have a perfect figure I have to create a waist and cover my hip area.
So when peplum tops came in fashion, I was cheering. Unfortunately 80% of them end halfway your bum. No good for me.

I solved it by having one made. There you go.
Before you think “Little spoiled rich girl”, I am not. I have to work hard for 36 or more hours a week. Which is a fulltime job. To earn the money to be able to buy clothes.

I hope you like this top as much as I do.

PS: I will admit that I did some photoshopping on the background. But on me. The background was sometimes too distracting.
