Frequent visitors of this site will all know Greetje. The fabulous, funny, honest and very stylish Greetje. Some of you may think that we have been long-time friends, but in fact I only came to know Greetje because of this blog. Greetje connected with this blog and has left a comment on my articles every single day since. No wonder that I now consider her a real friend, we ‘speak’ every day.


It’s pure coincidence that Greetje happens to live just around the corner of my parents in law’s house, which is where I usually go to when I’m in The Netherlands. It creates the perfect opportunity to get to know her better and this time we even had time to go shopping.


Greetje is as delightful in real life as she is on this blog and her own blog No Fear of Fashion. Of course she also dressed the part as she proudly presented the animal print belt that she had been looking for for quite a while (found on Etsy with a little help from Anja).


The skillfully tied animal print scarf looks perfect with this modern casual chic ensemble.


Our shopping destination were the famous 9 straatjes in De Jordaan, a unqiue shopping area in Amsterdam full of small unique little shops (and very picturesque bridges).


And lots of bikes too, of course..


Greetje managed to contain herself on this shopping trip although she did manage to buy some fabulous leather gloves with colored dots (pictured at top) and a black tie.

Encouraged by Greetje I scored some flat shoes (although I’m not sure Greetje approved of them) a skirt, 2 blouses and a casual dress. All very affordable from Cos, a sister brand of H&M which is not yet available in Singapore (but definitely my kind of store).

You will just have to wait and see what it all looks like. If you want to see more of Greetje, you can always go check out her blog.
