Christmas dress-up has gone AWOL

For most of this year’s Christmas days the dress code was “ugly Christmas sweaters”. Noooo…. I hate that. What happened to dressing up for Christmas? I have seen so many pretty party dresses on other blogs. As I am on a spending curfew, there were no new dresses in my closet. But hey… the ones that are already in there, aren’t exactly worn-out. I had plenty of choice. So I cheated. In this post you will find me in normal outfits and the rest in ugly Christmas sweaters. And some hilarious moments. View Post

Lemon green jacket and D&G suit.. the sequel

To show you that I take you seriously, I have tried a couple of the things you advised me:

  1. paired my lemon green jacket with jeans
  2. pinned up the skirt of my D&G suit (you can see the pins in the photos.. hihi)
  3. tried my D&G suit with more colour at the top

The lemon green jacket with the jeans is no problem. I really like it. These jeans were inexpensive and from an unknown brand but they are even better than my 7For all mankind. Which is why I photographed my bum   so conspicuously.
I have also paired this jacket with my little black dress, which you will see another time.

I am not so sure about taking up the skirt, though. I think it makes the suit more ordinairy. The longer skirt gave it something special in my opinion. Or am I the only one who thinks this?

Colour at the top of the black suit is not simple as the buckle doesn’t sit in the middle Which makes a longer necklace a bit awkward. A short necklace will hardly be seen due to the lapels. Perhaps a simple short gold (= shiny) necklace? But will that match the new “buckle” of rhinestones?
The scarfs in the photos are not something I would wear. I think it makes me look old (-fashioned).
Darned, why did I lose that buckle (it was black)……

Well dears, have a go at it. I am anxious to hear your comments.

Black D & G suit with yellow bag

A ladylike outfit today. A black D & G suit. It used to have a normal buckle, but I lost that somewhere.
Dry cleaners perhaps? Or just in the street? You would expect more quality from a brand like this.
Never mind. I put a rhinestone brooch in its place and added some more brooches. Three in the first photo and 2 in the second.
Perhaps I should have worn 4 brooches plus the buckle brooch.

The skirt was taken in by a guy in the D & G shop who had absolutely no idea of tailoring. Why do they put such bad staff in such expensive stores? The two 18-year old shop assistants looked at me when I walked out, as if I was dirt under their shoes. I had to have the suit, which I loved, but will never buy there again.
I want to feel loved as a customer when I part with my money.

The bag is another story. I was tempted by a bag article on 40plusstyle blog and found out I cannot buy this brand in The Netherlands (Coach). It took me several emails and phonecalls, and in the end it was shipped off.
Conveniently I forgot customs. I always do. A friendly note from DHL explaining the costs was enough never to order in the USA again. Fortunately I love the bag. It is really nice. Hopefully I will feel this way for life at this price.

(I feel a bit like Dita von Teese in this suit. Wishful thinking.)

 

Until tomorrow. Hope you will visit me then as well.
