Sequins at a farmers’ market

SequinsWhen I arranged to meet my friend Marjolein, I was in need of blog photos. Seems to be a recurring thing. This time the “theme” was sequins. She didn’t mind taking my pictures that afternoon. Great. Now…. would she know a good place to do the shoot? No wind, indoors with a lot of daylight, therefore huge windows? Her husband came up with Urban Farmers in The Hague. Fantastic place. The two top floors of a seven-storey building were converted into a greenhouse and farmers’ market. So nice and weird finding this in the middle of a city. View Post

A blue sequined top to wish you Happy New Year

Blue sequined topUsually I don’t buy anything new just for Christmas or New Year. There are no parties we are invited to and my closet is stocked with nice stuff anyway. So why bother? Then I came across this blue sequined top. (I was inspired by Lisa, The Sequinist.) It was a bargain, it suited me well, it was festive but I could still wear it with jeans. Furthermore it had long sleeves and a boat neck to hide any old skin and it was warm. I can never understand why in December women walk around in flimsy dresses with little straps and often with bare legs in peeptoe shoes as well. It is winter for Pete’s sake. I am always COLD! Am I the only one? Or do you not mind suffering as long as you look good? Don’t get offended when you are the flimsy dress woman, I think it looks great. Blame it on jealousy. View Post
