Story about dresses.

Because I can’t find any nice dresses anymore at my regular store(where I also used to work), they have changed their concept, I had to look for a different store or site to score my perfect dress. The shop that I used to work for was known for their beautiful dresses in the Netherlands and Belgium. Somewhere in 2007 a Dutch television serie, Julia’s Tango, started and our shop took care of all the dresses and other clothing. You should really check the link to take a look at the dresses they wore and we sold! The series was a huge succes and so were the dresses. Everybody talked about it. After each episode( one evening a week) the clothing that were worn in that episode hung in the stores the next day. It was crazy! The women stood in front of the shop before opening and inside they almost pulled the dresses out of each others hand. It was such a fantastic time.

Looking for perfect dresses.

But as I said, I think they don’t have nice dresses anymore. Now, there are a lot of overseas companies that sell very pretty dresses. But we Dutch are always a bit hesitant for overseas buying. But I had to do something. I hardly have any dresses in my closet…..sigh….. I used to wear more dresses in winter but I havn’t this winter so I am really ready for dresses!

By chance, I received a request for a collaboration to show some dresses! Well, that request sure came at the right time! Now I could try some different dresses, different designs and prints. Wonderfull. I am afraid you now get to see a lot of dresses for a while!green dressesgreen cardigan and dressesbrown flower pin and dressesgreen and brown in dressesbrown bracelets and dressesoutfit dressesleopart print shoes and dressesfashion dressesfashion over 50 dressesover 50 wearing dressesover 50 in dresses

      Thank you Jodie! I have always loved dresses, it is so easy to wear!

    That’s a beautiful dress, Nancy! I love the colors and the cut. It makes me think of a fancy garden party, with summer foods and drinks.

    Thanks for the link up & have a wonderful weekend!

      There will be a lot more! So many that you will say: oh please Nancy, wear a pants!

  5. May 5, 2017 / 7:32 am

    Oh I know exactly what store you mean and what dressed you’re taking about. I studied in Maastricht at the time and I was literally eeting dry bread and apples to save up money to buy the dresses. I ended up buying three and they were awesome! I love this dress on you too!

    • May 5, 2017 / 8:58 am

      Fantastic Marloes! I know these stories! Wonderful! I had a fantastic collegea in Maastricht!

  6. May 5, 2017 / 7:51 am

    I like the way the dress falls over the body and it looks lovely on you…perfect colour and length!

    You’ve got some lovely dresses and look great in them!

    • May 5, 2017 / 8:59 am

      Oh, but the one you wore yesterday is just stunning Gail!

  8. May 5, 2017 / 9:31 am

    Beautiful look! I love the green dress. I love the stamping and the design. Beautiful colors, beautiful pattern with crossed neckline and ribbon on your waist. The design provides volume and movement to the dress, and your figure is greatly enhanced. The small cardigan, which is cute, and the beautiful animal print sandals help set up a super outfit. The brown flower on the chest is the touch absolutely chic in the look.

    • May 5, 2017 / 10:10 am

      What can you say that beautifully! Thank you very much. I actually loved this outfit also very much, beautiful shades of green and brown!

  9. May 5, 2017 / 10:29 am

    ALs ik je outfit zie dan heb ik zin in de zomer, helaas als ik naar buiten kijk, werkt het weer niet echt mee. Mooie setjes.

    • May 5, 2017 / 3:00 pm

      Dankjewel! Koud hè! Niks an!

  11. May 5, 2017 / 11:45 am

    Nancy, this dress is amazing! The color is fabulous on you and that cardigan is perfectly matched. I adore the print on the dress, too. And the print mix with the leopard sandals is so, so good! Well done, my friend. You look gorgeous!

    What a gorgeous dress Nancy and I love how you styled it too. That brown silk rose was a great addition. Brown and green look great together. And I love that you chose leopard shoes – perfect for some pattern-mixing. We did have some nice days here but back to being very cold and rainy. I cannot wait to wear all my dresses, come on Spring!

    • May 5, 2017 / 6:07 pm

      Say that again! We are waiting for some warmer weather here too! Happy weekend Ada!

  14. May 5, 2017 / 5:52 pm

    What a beautiful dress and it looks fab on you! Love mixing the print with your leopard sandals too and the flower is a great finishing touch.

    • May 5, 2017 / 6:08 pm

      And I never mix prints! See how one can change right?

  15. May 5, 2017 / 5:53 pm

    Nancy that dress is so pretty. The green color looks awesome on you and pairing it with that green sweater is perfect. I love the print and it just says summer all over. I also like the way the bodice is cut and the fuller flare of the skirt. Very pretty. Thanks for sharing and for hosting. Have a great weekend. – Amy

      Thank you Carrie

  25. May 7, 2017 / 12:28 pm

    I love your dress Nancy! The emerald green base is beautiful, one of my favourite colours, and the print is gorgeous. The corsage is a lovely finishing touch. I saw your video clip on Facebook…you are a natural model! I loved all the dress swishing 🙂

    Emma xxx

    • May 7, 2017 / 2:21 pm

      No Emma, I’m a horrible model! It looks stupid. Ha ha , but I love the dress!

    • May 7, 2017 / 2:22 pm

      Thank you Izabela!

  26. May 7, 2017 / 6:22 pm

    Nancy, Im a little late to the party! YOu know me and dresses! I love wearing them too. This aqua color on you is fantastic! I love the print and the style is lovely. Sorry to hear that the shop you enjoyed doesn’t have the dresses you like anymore. What about ASOS, they are international? Fab shoes too!
    jess xx

    • May 7, 2017 / 10:45 pm

      Your just fashionably late! I hadn’t even thought of ASOS, I only shop there for shoes and skirts. That’s an idea, but I have tried Shein too lately, post in two weeks, and it is not so bad.

  27. May 8, 2017 / 2:40 pm

    Wat een prachtige jurk is dat. Die zou ik echt ook zo aantrekken!

    • May 8, 2017 / 6:03 pm

      Ja geweldige kleuren hè! Dankjewel!

  28. May 8, 2017 / 7:24 pm

    You scored big time on this lovely dress! The colours, the cut, the print! All so lovely! I especially like the oversized flower brooch. I’d happily borrow the whole lot from you : )

    Lucky you finding the right company to collaborate with.

    That sounds like quite the shop and the show. Brilliant advertising for sure. Funny how as women we want what we see on TV.


    • May 8, 2017 / 8:19 pm

      It was crazy! But I have to say that the dresses were of very high quality and I know that women wore them for years! They were not trend sensitive!

  29. May 13, 2017 / 10:35 pm

    I know exactly how you feel, Nancy! One of my dress sources no longer carries what I like. Thjs dress you are wearing is so pretty, and the color looks amazing on you! I look forward to seeing more dresses. 🙂
    xo, janea

    • May 13, 2017 / 11:36 pm

      Thank you Janea! I have a few more very beautiful ones coming up. Happy weekend dear!
