Is there such a thing as too much pink?

And to answer that question unequivocally: it depends! :-P

Okay okay, the girly over-the-top part of me would say: NO, there is never too much pink!

I myself don't have much stuff in pink, but I'm always so envious of girls who can pull off the cute candy pink look without it looking so sweet that your teeth will spontaneously start to rot.

The realistic take-a-good-look-in-the-mirror who-do-you-think-you-are part of me would say: YES, there is such a thing as too much and you (meaning me) of all people should take care not to overdo it!

Anyway, internal debates aside, I thought I'd solve the issue by wearing a cute summer cocktail dress that's white with a cool pink pattern. What do you think? Faux-pas avoided? :-P

Of course, I gotta have high heels.. and the only pink heels I had in my collection were these peep-toe stilettos by Bershka. I got them in a sale for 10 euros a couple of months ago, just waiting for a summer evening and a dress like this. :)

So, for this dress, I actually planned to do the photo/video shoot the same early morning as when I did the photo shoot for this blue dress. However, after that shoot.. I suddenly didn't feel too well, so I went home and stayed in bed all Sunday.

That's why this set of photos and video clips are from the evening that I actually wore it.. and I asked one of my friends to take both my photo and video camera (which I, of course, brought along) and help me out which he graciously did. Did I mention I feel very lucky with my friends? :-D

How do you guys/girls actually do your photo shoots? Do you use a tripod? Or do you drag your partner or other friends with you?

Okay, that last pose is perhaps overdoing it! :-P


Thanks to my friend (you know who you are), there is also a video! Have a great weekend!

It's easy being green.. with a green summer dress!

>> CHECK OUT THE MOST RECENT VIDEO <<

Right off the bat, I wanted to say thank you for your kind comments to my last post which was rather on the geeky side (even though I spiced it up with some high heels). This will always stay a blog where I will post my outfits whenever I get the opportunity to wear them, but with your encouragement.. I might, now and then, post some things about my geeky side. :D


As I have said in a previous post, during my holidays in France.. I got to wear quite a number of summer outfits. And I will be showing them in the next few posts. Like with all my photo and video shoots, I'm very grateful that I can always count on someone to help me out!


This shoot was on the Sunday of my holiday and I brought this green/black dress from Steps with a cute black ribbon as a sort of belt. I love dresses and tops from Steps, because I know that a size 38 (EU) will always fit me. Nothing annoys me more than when supposedly same size clothing from one brand will vary from dress to dress!


This little village had so many nice places for photos, you can definitely see that I'm not in the Netherlands! ;-)


Looking at this back-side shot of myself in this dress, I really think I should do something with my hair. I just have no idea.. so I guess a visit to the hair saloon is in order. Any suggestions?


With this dress, I tried to make sure that there were no trees or bushes in the background. Otherwise, you probably would not see me. I think this dress could be used in the army as a camouflage! :P 


Another short video, nothing special. If you think there's something I can do to make them a bit more interesting.. I'm always open to suggestions. As much as I like doing photo shoots.. I like videos even more!
