Let me tip you off about the sale that starts this week at the Wolford store near you (in many countries) (not jet on the internet).There was a private sale this weekend.For me it’s a long time since I couldn’t make up my mind what to buy in this sale season at Wolford, because there is so much to choose from! So I bought several pairs of tights and a red bodysuit. Continue reading


One Year in the fashion jungle!


This gallery contains 17 photos.

And I survived!

Dear readers,

to be honest it’s a few weeks longer than that. To my defence not to report it on the day itself is because I didn’t have the right dress to mark this moment and express the joy I feel. Because this was the year of personal growth! I’ve come a long way. From a shy little kid who hardly ever spoken to people and living in his own world, to the person I am now. I don’t know who that person is though, because I’m still growing and developing myself. Continue reading

Putting new shoes to the test …

A few months back I bought this fabulous high heeled sandals. I wasn’t used to this typ of shoes. And they had an handicap: I couldn’t tighten the top straps tight enough.
So a fortnight ago I made a trail walk in a other part of town, from the parking garage to the shoeshop (to adjust the straps) a few blocks further. This way I was making sure that I was confident enough that I could walk in this type of shoes, without making a fool of myself. Despite the handicap , the trail run went very well. So last friday I took my new shoes for a walk in the city to go shopping.
The only purchase I couldn’t resist was at the Wolford private sale in my favorite Shop in Haarlem. I bought the Cheetah String Body. I hope I can show it to you this weekend in combination with the matching skirt.
After two hours  and 30 minutes it was ‘game over’, cause my feet were killing me!   That was much sooner then I expected, based upon my experience. The day I went for the Jean Paul Gaultier exhibit I established a personal record. That day I wore booties, with the same heel height, for eight hours straight. But then we stopped now and then for coffee, more coffee, lunch, snack and diner. Oh, and now I come to think of it, I had an insole in the bootie. So that could explain it. Anyway … it was more like an endurance test for me, instead of the shoes!
I find this dress quite a catch, considering the design, quality and price. The body and tights are covering up my hairy body, sorry.
Body and tights: Wolford
