Three summer dresses - sponsored by Shein


First of all, I hope everyone had a great Christmas weekend! Mine was spent at my parents' place with lots of good food, general cosiness and lots of Christmas movies including classics like Home Alone, The Santa Clause, A Muppets' Christmas Carol. :-D

I had two sponsored posts already.. and this 3rd one is courtesy of Shein. I chose 3 cute dresses, but uhm.. they're more suited for hot summers! Obviously, it would not be very useful to delay a post like this for 6 months after they've sent me the dresses, right?

Thus.. once again, crappy and boring indoor photos it is!

The first dress is a short black dress with a split on the sides. My motto: one can never have too many LBD's!!

I got this dress in size M and just like previous LBD I got from another Chinese web-shop, it is still on the short side. One of the main reasons I wore these patterned tights with it. ;-)

The next item is navy sleeveless ruffle dress. When I think about having lots of cocktails on a beautiful warm summer night with my friends, I think about wearing a dress like this!

For the third and last dress, I chose something that I actually could wear in January or February, an army green casual dress. The long sleeves will make sure I won't be too cold. The dress is still short though! ;-)

Whenever I get free clothing or shoes, whether it's from a good friend or a company, the first thing is that I'm always grateful. It won't change my opinion of the items themselves.. but I won't deny that the feeling itself is a very nice one. :-)

My experiences with Shein was very pleasant. They were very patient as I received these dresses 6 weeks ago, but I just did not have the time. Anyway, here are the links if you want to check these dresses out!

As I've written before: I like filming outside. Sadly, due to the very bad and cold weather and lack of time.. I couldn't do that. So this time, I chose another part of my apartment to change things up. Hope you still like it!

Royally blue


Be warned, this blog-post will have lots of photos.. there were just too many nice ones to leave them out! :-)

Followers of my Instagram page (or Flickr / Facebook) have probably seen this dress when I was testing it indoor at home. Obviously, dresses like these are not meant to be worn in an apartment.

Ever since I got my hands on this dress, I knew that I wanted to wear it on a sunny day in a beautiful Royal Garden. And what a coincidence that the Netherlands is a kingdom.. filled with castles and palaces!

You can imagine that walking around in a dress like that did attract quite the attention.. and I got my fair share of looks. Perhaps practice for that future moment when I will be queen of the world? :-D

Anyway, women were complimenting me on my dress and they all said that it was totally appropriate wearing them at the Royal Palace and Gardens! Of course, that made me smile a lot!

Oh, by the way.. inside the Royal Palace, the clickety-clack of the heels would reverberate throughout all the hallways. So, to be considerate, I decided to wear sneakers inside. Did you ever thought you would see me wearing anything flat?! ;-)

The Monday is almost over.. a couple more days until Christmas. Can't wait until I will spend some time with my family and eat some really good food! Have a great week! ;-)


Great weather, a beautiful dress ( if I may say so myself ) and royal garden, you can bet your bottam dollar that we also filmed a couple of video clips! :-)

Casually red with over-the-knee boots in Rotterdam


So, the last post was about outfit material that I hadn't yet posted, but obviously I don't sit still during the winter weekends! Especially when it's not raining and/or snowing. So there is also new stuff happening here. :-)

A lot of people know and love Amsterdam and so do I. However, when it comes to having that big metropolitan vibe with all the hustle and bustle.. there is no Dutch city better than Rotterdam.

For the outfit, I went with a red jacket, some grey skinny jeans and these gorgeous black leather over-the-knee boots from Buffalo. Seriously, they may be 5 inches high.. but these are one of the most comfy boots I own!

You might have seen this photo on my Instagram, but I wanted to share it here as well. It is just a perfect example of the Rotterdam skyline.

This quick photo-shoot was at the end of a long day. In the winter, the sun goes down so quickly.. and I keep forgetting that! On top of that, the batteries in my flash were dying.. so these were the only photos we could squeeze out! Ah.. fashion blogger problems! :-P

So, what do you think of those boots? Too much with this outfit or does this work with the grey jeans and red jacket?

Anyway.. it's Wednesday, so it's only a couple of days until the weekend! ;-)

Just a bunch of clips of me showing off walking in these gorgeous boots! I really need to wear these more often.. not just in the winter, but also during spring and summer! :-)
