Tantilly Dress & Fancy Friday linkup

Tantilly dress

I don’t do affiliate links, google adds and links to my outfits. Can’t be bothered with it. I am not a money making blogger. But I do love fun collaborations. I don’t do that often either, really only if I’m actually going to use or wear the product myself. So when Tantilly asked about collaborations on Facebook, I immediately responded because I think it’s a great brand! I also received a positive response very quickly and of course came the best part: choosing a beautiful dress!

The wonderful thing about this kind of collaboration is that it feels like you’re getting a present! Writing a blog post is something I love to do and taking photos is also fun. Although the result is never good enough for me. But I’m just not in my twenties, I don’t have a natural flair for posing, I don’t have a professional photographer, let alone a professional camera. I am an almost 55 year old woman with a passion for fashion and my blog, and totally being myself! And that should be good enough.

But because I love to do all that for the blog it doesn’t feel like you have to write or take photos. And that’s why it feels like a present when a lovely collaboration pops up!

collaboration with a Dutch brand

Back to the dress because that’s what it’s all about! Tantilly is a Dutch company that designs almost everything itself. Inspired by flowers and retro prints. They have listened perfectly to the wishes of their customers by creating dresses that are not too tight on the tummy area and often slightly longer at the back, which I love very much. The clothes are colorful and of great fabrics and quality. They also design larger sizes even custom made. This is a company with the right social attitude. As they support local craftsmen by letting their clothes not only be made in the Netherlands, but also in Fair Fashion workshops in several countries.

My chosen dress is made of 70% silk and feels so wonderful. The colors are a beautiful combination of blue and brown. I can also wear these as a kimono with jeans! Or as a long jacket. With a top over it, it can be worn as a skirt. So many options with a wrap dress! Take a look at the Tantilly site or visit the physical store in Deventer! Which is, by the way, a very lovely place to spend a day shopping!Tantilly dress

    You and I think the same – I don’t have ads or run affiliate links but gifted collaborations are good, if it’s what you would buy. This is a gorgeous dress, I can see how good quality it is.

    What a beautiful wrap dress on you! You picked well for your collaboration! πŸ™‚ The colours are so nice.

    It’s funny – I’m the opposite! I do affiliate links as I linked to things I was wearing before affiliate links anyway! But I turn down brand collaborations as they seem like too much work, haha! Always up for collabs with other bloggers though πŸ™‚

    Thank you for the link up! hope you’re having a good week!

    Nancy, I LOVE this dress! What beautiful colors and print. And the style is absolutely fabulous on you. I am loving your shoes as well. Also, your attitude about collaborations is so where I am with my blog, too. I ended up with so many affiliate companies that I simply couldn’t keep track of any of it. And for the pennies earned, it is just not worth it. So I stopped with all the affiliate stuff. But I do get excited for a collaboration that provides me with wonderful new wardrobe pieces. I look forward to the other ways you will style this dress! Have a great weekend.

    Nancy, you look absolutely gorgeous! That dress is so beautiful, I love the shape and the print. I love doing collabs too, but since starting The Grey Brunette, it’s taking a while to build up my readership so that brands approach me. Hopefully it will start happening again soon!

    What a pretty color adn print: I am looking foward to seeing you style it other ways. I am also really loving your sandals. I am learning though that I don’t wear mine much unless they are flat or a wedge. That block heel though is really nice!

    Nancy,

    You and I are kindred spirits in our purposes for blogging. Like you, I don’t run my blog to earn money; it is a passion of the heart. You do a marvelous job of sharing your love for fashion and you should never feel as though you owe your audience an apology. There is definitely a place in the blog universe for bloggers like us.

    As for this dress, you made an excellent choice. The colors and pattern are fabulous and the style suits you well. I hope you have a great weekend.

    Nancy, a silk dress goes a long way. Lovely.

    And you know what? Fashion blogging as a mature woman is what real fashion and style is all about. We make sure it is not all about youth. Still more important than ever. There is not a lot of diversity when it comes to age and agism is very much alive and kickin. Just my 2 cents.

    Happy blogging my friend! xo Sabina

    That’s a beautiful dress! I love your earrings too – are they polymer clay? Blogging because you love it is the best reason. I don’t make any money from my blog and don’t get many collabs now – I’m not big enough on Instagram and don’t have the time to spend hours a day on it to get loads of followers. I do love to collaborate with a brand that I genuinely love if the opportunity arises though. Quality over quantity!
