Is this really true? It’s already SantaClaus day? A quick decided change of style in a more christmas-like mood. Well to be honest with you… while sitting in the train and listening to good old Michael McDonald songs, I look out of the window into the foggy, still dark morning. I realize this year not being so wastly illuminated with christmas light as usual and oh… some houses have thrown a light chain over the next best tree they could find… that’s it! Unbelivable, I think while I try to resist the feeling of wanting to jump on that tree and drape a decent christmas dress on it… similar to when you adjust a shoulder strap on the dress of your friend while chatting just because you have to well I can’t help it and you can call it tick if you want but I might end up jumping on neighbours trees on christmas eve.

Our Santa-Shooting took place in the middle of my beloved town in front of the theater. The photographer, once more my sweet daughter, was so easy going that day, despite of the people standing around, watching and the low batteries on my camera (forgot to load… shame on me…) she just did an excellent job in no time! Thank you my sweetie!!! Her assistant by the way, my little love, on some point just decided to take over for a few shoots!

My skirt: this is my first finished project hot from the sewing machine in school! It’s lined and has a vent, a waistband and a zipper on the back. I have ajusted the pattern so it would fit exactly my figure. So we are talking here of my very first tailored garment! I got the fabric this automn in London, at Berwick Street. I first intended to do a very british shooting, but then coincidence decided that it would become more of a Christmas shoot which was so fun to do and to wear and just makes happy… so it hopefully will get easier to ignore horrible Christmas decorations and concentrate more on the beautiful ones.

Let me know if you like the pics and have a nice and stressfree pre-Christmas time!! See you in my next Post, BYE!!!
