Here I am in Paris, wearing a dress from my shopping spree in August at the Max Mara outlet. At the time I kept insisting that this was a summer dress. Both Daniela and the sales assistant told me it was a winter white dress. Being pigheaded, I put it on the next day (… in August in Italy…). And instantly took it off again. Indeed a winter dress. (It looks very good with green fantasy tights and green boots. You will see that futher down this post. View Post
Another present from my husband: a yellow polka dot blouse. He mailed me a photo of this blouse when he spotted it in the shop. “Would you like this?”… Yes I would! And please could I also get that strange tie-thing they were displaying the blouse with on the mannequin? No idea what it was. It turned out to be a string of hair. ARTIFICIAL hair, mind you. Funny!! The shop was kind enough to give me this shop display item although it was not for sale. (They have a very good stylist.) The blouse is by SpijkersSISSpijkers, two Dutch female designers, who also designed my eye blouse. View Post
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
Wearing 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
Is 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 Or is it outdated?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
