Red jacket… finally

red jacketI have a red jacket!! I have a red jacket!! YAY…

Red is totally my colour, it suits me so well. But if it is not in fashion, it is hard to come by. And vintage shops are nowhere near as good in The Netherlands as they are in the USA or Canada. Three weeks ago, to my total surprise, I saw this red jacket in the window of a shop. Of course at that moment I was totally skinned (financially). Nevertheless I bought it straight away. I know ….. totally irresponsible behaviour. I am like that with clothes (and shoes). But now that I finally found my jacket, right colour red, right length, right fit, right size, right price, there was nothing to stop me from acquiring this trophee. View Post

An orange coat to bring some fun in winter

Orange coat by Claudia SträterThis orange coat is hanging in my closet since February 2014. I only wore it once. There was something wrong with it and I couldn’t put my finger on it. No, not the colour…. I know this is not everybody’s cup of tea, but I love bright (neon) colours, especially when they have a shade of red in them.

I found the coat in the sale at Claudia Sträter which is a Dutch store, renowned for their good coats. It was half price, had the right length (just hitting the knee) and the right shape.  So what was wrong with it? I will tell you.  View Post
