Lace-ups and studs


Yep, getting in a steady rhythm of posting.. sort of. Go me!

My last post featured an outfit from 2016.. but with this post, we're back in 2017. Because I have to face it.. 2018 is already knocking on the door, so I gotta get my rear in gear and step up my posting!!

You all know that I love colourful dresses and colourful shoes, but my first and true love will always be the black dress. The first type of clothing I bought back when I was young.. was a midi-length black dress (I still have it!!).

I do try to look for variety with these black dressses.. and this one has all these laced-up details going up and down the dress. It's from Missguided.. and in my case, that means I have to go up one size. I really hope it's their sizing and not that I'm skimping on my work-out routine! :-P

Now, with an LBD, I usually like black heels.. but this time, I thought I'd wear the studded stiletto heels that were gift from my dance teacher. I really love as they are a) very sexy and b) super comfy for what are at least 5.5 inch heels!

With a black dress like this, I do like a bit of green around me.. so went to the local park to get the actual photos and videos. Dodging joggers and cyclists wasn't easy while wearing these heels!

It was a summer say.. it was hot.. and there was an ice-cream truck. So obviously, one doesn't need higher mathematics to figure out that I got me some! :-D

And yes, I did spill some on my dress, because I'm just clumsy like that! :-P

Finishing up this post with a little hair toss.. not intentional, but my photographer likes taking this pics while I'm not paying attention! :-P

 I hope you all had a great weekend! Now let's take on Monday like a boss!

It was quite a long way back to the car.. so I wore sneakers before and after filming the video clips! :-P

Puffy yellow dress, a bit of cork.. and icecream


Okay, okay.. I had 2 posts within 7 days, but then.. life got busy! Gotta work, gotta pay them bills! :-P

You all know that I'm much more active when it comes to dressing up nicely, taking photos and videos when it's warm and sunny. So yeah, there are lots of outfits of summer 2017 that I'm going to show here on this blog.

However, I still have outfits from 2016 on my computer.. and I felt it would be a waste to not post them here!

So, on a gorgeous summer day in 2016, I wanted to wear something bright and happy, so I picked this yellow dress. I totally love the eye-popping colour! And I enjoyed wearing it as it was very loose-fitting which was ideal in this heat.

However, looking at these photos (and especially the photos that didn't make the cut), I don't think this dress was particularly flattering for me. In hindsight, I should have defined my waist with a subtle black belt. Ah well.. lessons were learned! ;-)

As for the location for this photo-shoot.. I chose one of the watermills near the Dutch city of Eindhoven. There are many watermills in the Netherlands and sometimes, they are located in beautiful spots. And a lot of times, the buildings are in their original states.

Then again, most locations are beautiful when the sun is shining, right? ;-)

For the shoes, I chose my cork-heeled sandals. They are perfect for the summer (I also wore them this summer) and super comfy! And also, because I was wearing yellow.. I thought it would be a nice contrast to paint my nails bright red. I think it works.. do you agree?

It was a summer say.. it was hot.. and there was an ice-cream truck. So obviously, one doesn't need higher mathematics to figure out that I got me some! :-D

And yes, I did spill some on my dress, because I'm just clumsy like that! :-P

Looking at this last photo, the dress does look fine, but I'm cheating a little bit with my posing. Sooo,.. I don't regret getting rid of this dress! :-P

However, I'm curious what you girls think.. was I wrong to part with it?

 This week is pretty tiring for me. I hope it's much more relaxed for you!

My camera person actually almost fell while filming me.. fortunately, nothing bad happened!!

Yet another three dresses - sponsored by ROMWE


Well, it seems like I'm getting back into the swing of things with posting new stuff.. let's see how long this lasts! :-P

Again, I'm showing 3 dresses I chose from the Romwe website .. it was a sunny Sunday last week when we shot all the material. And this Sunday.. I actually had time for editing!

The first dress is a red off-the-shoulder summer dress. I think the colour is fantastic.. and I paired it with a new pair of stiletto heels! It is a dress that shows every curve.. and judging from the video, I think I need to flatten my tummy a little bit to make this dress look even better! Ah well.. a week of my mom's food didn't help! :-P

The second dress is a cute blue-ish dress which I combined together with my red heels, because I think red and blue are just perfect together! I think it would look even better with a petticoat underneath it, don't you think? ;-)

The third dress is black one-strap dress with lovely flower prints on it. I think this one is really elegant.. and I'd probably wear this to a garden party.. even though I don't think October will have many outdoor parties. Unless I travel to Australia or New Zealand!!

Again, I am totally in love with these dresses.. that red one is really hot, the blue-ish one is so nice for a day out sight-seeing.. and the third is great for a party!

What do you think? I really want to hear your feedback and opinions! :-)

Similar to the last few times, my experiences with Romwe was very pleasant! Again, they also gave out a $5 coupon code when your order is above $55: RWENJOY5

Anyway, here are the links if you want to check these dresses out!

Have a great week!

Video clips of all these dresses.. enjoy! :-)
