Silk with leather

Off course this look would look even better with high heels, but I mean how would I run after the number one racer?  That is just not doable..... 
In that case my loafers are the best choice, and this time with studs by ZARA. 
The red leather skirt is vintage and the creme silk blouse with illustration is by Club Monaco

Have a good week!

Before & After with a vintage dress!

I find it so much fun to customize a vintage dress. This one got shortened and became strapless.
With my size 38 I am not stick thin and the ruffles make me look a size 40, but hey Sophia Loren and Marilyn were a 38/40 and looked hot. 
So I embrace my curves and look and feel very feminine in this cocktail dress. 
Designed by Nettie Vogues London W.I. which was probably made somewhere in the 60s.
She also designed for princes Diana, pretty cool to own a dress by her hand and eeehhh mine :-)
What do you think, did it work out for the better?

ps. and the red patent heels are by ZARAtrf  (buy here)

Nancy surrounds herself with only pretty things. 
Everywhere in her home, where ever you look is something beautiful to see. 
But not just to see and pass by, but really look at, admire, look again and get inspired. 
After a lot of teas, croissants, sunshine, fun and chatting, I drove back home fulfilled and with lots of ideas and energy. 
Thank you Nancy, looking forward to see more of your magic in JAN & PARK Magazine.
