Cassete tape outfit with a touch of nostalgia,umbrellas and city trip

I looove music and everything music related.I also happened to be related to music, since I married a professional jazzsician (jazz musician).
So it’s only natural that I eat,breath,kiss and wear music.Case in point-cassette tape skirt and belt.Made by me using recycled materials.


Cassete tape outfit with carton stereo

My husband had some studio recording and I joined him for a 3 hour drive to a little city ,wearing appropriate for the occasion cassete tape outfit.Upon out arrival to the studio, this old school cassete player stereo greeted us in the entrance.Boom!Cosmic coincidence or what? On the same day I wear my cassete tape outfit I find this made of carton stereo in a far away recording studio?A perfect compliment to my clothes.


Carton stereo

The old school stereo.In all his carton glory.How appropriate for entrance of a music studio


Street with umbrellas

After the recording we went some city exploration and we found this!!! Umbrella street!


Umbrella street

A colorful umbrella- -ella-ella heaven on and old town street.


Street umbrellas

Fly me to the moon or Marry Poopins 2.0 (typo and it stays).

Well,the umbrellas didn’t fly me to the moon,but to this! house.Which is like the moon, since there are not many houses in Holland which look like this!

Colorful artistic house

Colorful house with a message

And here is my favorite part of the house.
The message on the entrance door.
Which is totally going to be my new motto.
Translated from dutch,it says:
Those who don’t believe in miracles,are not realists!

Amen to that!
And to more colorful days like that!


My melons and I or birthday hairstyle inspired by my youth

In case you have burning desire to know when I got my love for big bows on my head,here is your answer:


Two year old and already with a huge bow bigger than my head.


Keeping my eyes on the bow.


My favorite bow with red dots.


Bows are forever.


Even half-asleep I always had my bow perky.


I am crying because Santa’s got bigger headgear than me.

My melons and I

My melons and I

So I decided to keep with the big bow hairstyle for my 45 birthday this week.You are never too old to have a big bow on your head.


Big bow hairstyle

First I put my hair in a middle of my head tight ponytail.

Then added this melons big fascinator with a veil for more drama.

Royal green,jewels and bright yellow outfit and the old Model

Now,how often do you get to be totally overshadowed by a woman in her 60’s?
All while wearing your favorite feeling-oh-so-cool green outfit?
I just walked by this purse store and then I saw this Green model lady on the window display,advertizing awesomeness!!


Green dressed  chicks

Touche,my Window lady-you win this one! Looking good! !It was about time somebody put an 60 plus unbotoxed,unplasticized model in the limelight!


Green dressed chicks

On the other hand,we have a lots in common,so let count the ways:

Big handbag-check!
Blonde and cheeky-check!
Young at heart Ladies of certain(over 40)age-check!
Juuust like 2 drops of water,aren’t we ?


Green silk dress and jewel belt

Green silk dress-trifted.
I gave it the easybreazy makeover-cut it short,cut the belt and the straps.
Then added my own bejeweled yellow belt and matching bejeweled straps.
Unfortunately,the day before I got bitten on the beach by a shit fly and my left foot started to swell from an allergic reaction,so I had to wear this walking,sensible sandals, instead of my hip yellow and green heels.Totally un-matching, I know.Damn you,Shit fly.Boo-hoo for me.


Green dress with yellow accents

Also added my ever present big yellow flower on my head.
Green patent leather handbag,bought especially for this dress, finishes the look.
Hooray for the green and the Old Sassy Lady!
