Green print T-shirt dress (thrifted)

Green print T-shirt dressGrinning like an idiot. That’s me most of the times. Suffering severe cold temperatures in this green print T-shirt dress. Yes, T-shirt dress. Nothing warm about it. Standing in this wind-free corner it wasn’t too bad, but there were other moments when the wind was freezing and my skin had goose pimples. Even Ron, fully dressed with coat, got back in the car afterwards and said: “Oh let’s go home immediately, I am freezing”. You can imagine how it was for me. I did wear a skirt and T-shirt from Bellamy Gallery underneath it, otherwise it would have been too cold.  View Post

Beautiful RIXO London dress

Rixo London dressTwo weeks ago my pencil skirt with the red and white striped blouse fetched a lot of cheers. But this RIXO London dress does even better. Never did an outfit of mine receive so many compliments. And right so, as I am completely in love with it. It is light as a breeze and fits perfectly. It was Michelle of michelle-tyler.com who put me on to it. On Instagram she mentioned to have seen many lovely things in a shop called The Dressing Room. I curiously hopped over to their IG account. And saw this RIXO London dress. Fell in love head over heels and ordered it at the beginning of October. As it is a very thin summer dress, this meant buying out of season. And I never buy out of season, even though that is the smart thing to do moneywise. It had to wait in my closet until now before I could wear it.  View Post

Wide fuchsia skirt with dark blue blouse

Fuchsia wide skirt with blue mirror blouse (36)_LRWoman in the woods. That is what comes to my mind when I see this picture. (Inspired by Susanne Carillo in the travelling yellow skirt (so funny).Wide skirts… I love them. Fuchsia? One of my favourite colours. This wide fuchsia skirt was therefore too tempting to pass up.

Wide skirts are excellent for women with small hips and bum. They are also excellent for women with large hips and bum. It usually is a flattering item. If…. they are made well. This is the tricky part. Sometimes they are too narrow at the hips, deleting all advantages. Or they are too thick in the waist. Again not something you want. This skirt features 84 wedge shaped panels to create a perfect silhouette. Narrow at the top, very full at the hem. Made by Madame Hall. Owner Lisa Hall is Australian, living and working in India and professionally trained in the ‘European’ style of pattern making and garment construction. She was interviewed by Sylvia on 40+Style, where I discovered her. And fell in love with her work. View Post

Red cowboy boots with a red tassle necklace

Red cowboy boots (1 van 2)These red cowboy boots never get the attention from me they deserve. They were a present from my husband but I was too impatient when buying them. I wanted them less high. Perhaps if they had been mid calf, I might wear them more. They are pretty comfortable and the brand is Sendra (worn in winter here). The red is perfect to combine with my new tassle necklace, made by Suzanne Carillo. (If you like it, you can order one through her blog.) View Post
