The princess is not in another castle

>> CHECK OUT THE MOST RECENT VIDEO <<

Okay okay, let me stop you right here.. I would never say of myself that I am a princess. It's just that I'm a huge fan of Super Mario Bros.. and of course, at the end of each level, Princess Peach was never there! Ah.. childhood memories! :-P


As far as I'm concerned, there are only thee actual Dutch princesses of whom the oldest will be our new Queen. And yes, I know.. the Mother of the King and her sisters (and the wives of all the King's brothers and cousins) are also called princesses. But that doesn't count. ;-)


Anyhoo, after this small lecture into the #1 classic game and the Dutch monarchy, let me tell you about the photos and outfit in this blog-post. It's an asymmetrical black dress from Cool Cat, a brand that is aimed at teenagers, but I think this dress is still quite tasteful in its own kind. Let me know if you agree or vehemently disagree!


The location is Castle 'de Haar' (kasteel de Haar) and you can find it near Utrecht in a village called Haarzuilens. Some of you might know it because it's the place where the ELFIA - ELF Fantasy Fair is held every year in April. It's a magical place and ideal for photo-shoots!


I was wearing cute pumps with a leopard print and 5 inch stiletto heels. Perhaps not the ideal footwear around a castle, but when it comes to wearing heels... all reason and sanity go out the window. :-P


After walking for a couple of hours admiring the castle and taking lots of photos and videos,.. these shoes were starting to slip off my feet. So I changed back to my more comfy T-strap 5 inch black heels once again just like with the half-pipe photos. I always come prepared!  


Does this happen to you sometimes? You're posing for a pic.. and then other people want to pass?! :-P

We shot so many clips that day.. so the video is a bit longer... I hope you won't get bored! Enjoy!

  9. you look totally gorgeous in that black dress....and those leo heels are amazing! I'm not very practical when it comes to heels either, I love to wear them as often as I can....anyhow, this outfit is so glam and fabulous!

    Today I was also playing a role of a princess (sort of). I went to a local pub and because it was 45 C outside, we went in the basement...that kind of looks like a castel....but this real castle is way more cool! It looks like a great place to visit...and believe it or not, today also a woman was cycling by just as I was posing for an outfit photo...what a coincedence!

  24. Honestly it happens very seldom that people want to pass when we have a shooting - but this is simply due to the reason that here in the Bavarian country don't live many people :) It is kind of lonley here! But I agree that this castle is for sure a wonderful place for pictures and honestly you are indeed a princess for me - a very clever and hard working princess! Like the dress it fits you so well <3
