In my post Pregnant? I had a red carpet in the background. And it was so obvious, that I couldn’t see it. After the comment on my post on Lookbook.nu of my fellow lookbooker Iza Bella (I love her sense of humor!) it hit me. I could use it of one of my next posts. You have to know I use this location quite often to change clothes before I go shopping in women’s clothes, and this was the first time I used it as a photoshoot location.
Still at first I wanted to try a different location for the photoshoot for this dress, because I didn’t want to impose again. It looks like nobody is there, but there are many people going in and out. So after I changed clothes and I was halfway to the new location, I saw the blog of Ana D.in my head: ‘Screw it I’m fierce’! After all, this is the only dress I have so far, to justify such a title and there was this other thing: I wanted to make a photo for the Instagram referring to #myseptemberissue for the Dutch Vogue.
is a genuine Karen Millen (I try to be funny here). It was a limited edition and already sold out in the webstore. Maybe there is still one available in one of the stores . I bought it just before I went for Switzerland for the holidays. It took me a while to get the whole outfit together. For me it is a super fab dress. Despite the fact it hasn’t been made with stretch material, it fits like a glove. his is the first time I experienced this in my 15 someting years ‘career’. It reflects class and style because of the simple but effective design, the choice of the material and the color.
When I was in Luzern this summer I saw in the window of a jewelry shop a special item to buy for my girlfriend. So when I was in the shop looking at all the beautiful things, I explained that I was looking for my party dress. After trying lots of jewelry combinations (I was in my jungle dress) I’ve bought the earrings and the matching necklace you see here. I took a risk in buying these earrings, though, because they had no clips jet. But luckily for me it wasn’t a problem for my gold smith to adjust that.
