Yeah I must admit I have enough dresses to slip into; each week in another dress. Nevertheless I couldn’t resist buying this amazing sheath dress from the latest collection of Guess. It has a lovely print, it is made of a dreamy softness and fluid fabric, it has a body hugging cut and it is as good as wrinkle proof.
You probably wonder when my post about the next step in the series Walking in high heels will appear on your screen. To be honest I couldn’t tell you right now. There is some other stuff I have to take care of first.
For instance I’m in the middle of the preparation of a launch of an eau de toilette, one for male and one for female. It’s for a dear friend of mine: Carmichael Byfield. He runs the fashion label House of Byfield. For the big public not so famous yet, but The House already showed at many fashion weeks in: New York (twice), Los Angeles (twice), Amsterdam, etc. and he is Continue reading →
I don’t have many New Year’s resolutions, and one of them is to stay focused on fashion. What better way to accomplish that is to attend a Fashion Week event. There is one real soon in Amsterdam: MBFWA. It goes down … Continue reading →
In The Netherlands we can feel the temperature rising, because of the springtime. Up until last week the temperature at noon was not warmer than 6 degrees Celsius (43F). Every photoshoot takes me between one and two hours, so you can imagine at least my fingertips got a bit nom after a while. All for a good cause! These photos are taken at a relatively comfortable temperature of about 17 degrees Celsius (63F). Continue reading →
Like I mentioned my post Skirt with an edge, I love carpentry since my childhood. And about that same time I was experimenting with clothes of my mother and sister. I felt pretty ashamed at that time, but I could not help myself, so I kept these feelings for myself. By the time I was ready to live on my own, I tried to leave these feelings behind. And I was very successful in ignoring these feelings, by taking on all sorts of sports and activities, like squash, tennis, badminton, horseback riding and ballroom and latin dancing.

In my post Are these booties are not for walking?, posted on February 3, I mentioned that the heel soles of these Zanotti’s were completely worn down after a short shopping experience. The customer service of Zanotti reimbursed me with twenty euro. Question now was, whom would I trust to repair this. Continue reading →
I still want to make a professional turn, but there is still so much to choose from.
Since my childhood I love carpentry. As a leap of destiny however, my school director advised my parents to send me to a school for secondary general education. Instead of preparing myself for a study at a school for secondary technical education, where math, chemistry or physics might come of handy I choose for the fun stuff: Dutch, English, German, history, geography and biology. By the time I finished this school (after four years), there was a crisis going on (80’s). Continue reading →
In my post about my Project Earrings 1 on November 17 last, I told you how excited I was about getting my first pair of earrings. Well … They are not finished yet and I try not to disturb the creative proces. So in the meanwhile I kept my eyes open for other opportunities, and found a reasonable prized pair on sale, that is to say compared to ones I saw, and totally in love with, but in a price range way out of my league. For example this pair below from De Grisogono Continue reading →
The title seems to be a bit off. That’s because this is also the title of my Lookbook.nu look of today. Sometimes one photo is not enough to tell the story. Then I fetch two or three photo’s together as one. I know, it feels wrong when I put Lookbook.nu first, but for me it is so damn adictive that I can’t resis. Sorry! First you see the triptych from Lookbook.nu. After that other and detailed photos.
You are quite right that this look has been on this blog before. It was also this combo when I visited the exhibit of Jean Paul Gaultier in the Kunsthal in Rotterdam in May of this year. To my defence I added a coat and new shoes to this look. The shoes are by the way on sale, and also in suede verseon.
Thank you for your visit, and I hope to welcome you another time soon.
