{Happy 2013 Pentecost Weekend!}

May this 2013 Pentecost Weekend be a very sunny and happy one for everyone. In Europe most people enjoy also a so-called Second Pentecost Day as an official holiday. Not so here in the USA. But whatever your region and lifestyle is; may it be a sunny and happy weekend. 
Just like to show you these photos that got taken last Sunday after Church, wearing another Escada outfit. This time a jacket with a beautiful rose corsage in silk and wool on a white Escada jeans. 
Shoes are Charles Jourdan in a taupe color, matching my taupe Chanel bag.
Silk top is by I. Magnin, San Francisco.
Sunny Sunday...
Alongside driveway in front of our Italian cypress.
In front of our garage door... 
Okay, let´s get inside for our coffee and chat with Mom & Dad in The Netherlands, on the iPhone...
Tiggy-Tiger girl had to be cuddled first. She is our tiny feline...
This photo I had to make lighter due to the harsh sunlight through the curtain...
Tiggy-Tiger

Have a Happy Weekend worldwide!

    1. Dearest Karen,
      Thanks for your compliments. Yes, I've been lucky for finding special things when being consultants often tax free and the Escada garments and shoes come from the Outlets. Size 34 (4) always yields high discounts.
      Happy Sunday to you; we're getting a thunderstorm in minutes, it looks so dark...

      Thanks for your compliments! Escada fits me like a glove so I no longer do make my own clothes and nothing can beat the Outlet prices. Pentecost Sunday did bring us lots of rain...

  5. Wat een mooie stijlvolle outfit Mariette.
    En wat een mooie achtergrond met het prieel.
    Wat fijn dat er chat is zodat je op die manier je ouders toch een beetje dichtbij je heb.
    Leuke foto van jullie poes.
    Ik wens je ook een hele fijne Pinksterdag toe.
    Lieve groet, Mea

    1. Beste Mea,
      Ja onze achtergrond is momenteel èrg groen. Wacht maar tot het juli en augustus is en het weer tussen de 40-43°C wordt, dan is het niet meer zó groen... Ja, het woord chat betekent in het US English ook gewoon 'kletsen' dus niet wat jullie bedoelen via social media zoals FB en zo. Dus een telefoongesprek via iPhone; wat ik nu ook net gedaan heb samen met manlief bij een kop koffie/thee en met de speaker phone aan. Gezellig even op bezoek gaan!
      Geniet nog lekker na van jullie zoon's bijzondere bruiloft met zijn meisje.
      Liefs,
      Mariette

  7. Liebe Mariette,
    schöne Sachen trägst Du wieder! Von diesen Marken kann unsereins nur träumen. ;-) Aber ich bin auch eh' nicht so der Typ für sowas, trage am liebsten T-Shirt und einfache Röhren-Jeans. Und im Winter Outdoor-Sweatshirts, da es mir sonst immer zu kalt ist. ;-)
    Danke auch von Herzen für Deine lieben Zeilen in meinem Waldgartenblog! Den anderen mußte ich schließen, weil ich Augenprobleme bekam. Da sich diese Probleme mit zunehmendem Alter eher verschlechtern, werde ich generell blogmäßig kürzertreten müssen. Es haben schon Bloggerinnen wegen der Augen ganz das Bloggen aufgegeben. Das möchte ich allerdings nicht, wenn ich nicht dazu gezwungen werde.
    Da der Waldgartenblog aber viel beliebter ist, was man anhand der relativ hohen täglichen Besucherzahl unschwer erkennen kann, habe ich mich für ihn entschieden. Denn auch wenn der andere Blog offen wäre, würde ich ihn doch kontrollieren müssen und hätte immer wieder das "Problem" mit ihm, auch die Mails, die mich daraufhin erreichen usw.

    Nun wünsche ich auch Dir und Deinem Mann ein gesegnetes Pfingstfest - wir haben ja noch den Montag ... und sende viele liebe Grüße in die Ferne

    1. Liebe Sara,
      Das träumen von diesen Marken braucht ihr in Deutschland doch garnicht da es auch einen Escada Outlet gibt bei euch und zwar in Metzingen! Hier in der USA gibt es verschiedene und man kann auch anrufen und es wird versendet. Die Grösse passt immer genau, also dann klappt es super. Schuhe habe ich auch immer vom Outlet und wo wir noch 'International Consultants' waren da hatten wir öfters Schnäpchen vom Tax-Free shopping. Da ich noch immer seid ich 15 war, die gleiche Figur habe kann ich sehr lange mit meine Markenkleider tun.
      Geniesst noch eurem Pfingsten Montag und viele liebe Grüsse zurück.

  9. Liebe Mariette,
    du strahlst mir der Sonne um die Wette. Dieses Outfit gefällt mir
    besonders gut. Die Jacke ist ein Traum.
    Dein Kätzchen ist so goldig. Und es fühlt sich wohl. Man sieht es.
    Vielen Dank auch für deine immer so liebevollen Kommentare.
    Ein frohes Pfingstfest wünscht Dir

      Mein Großonkel (Priest) schrieb in mein Poesie: erscheine wie die Sonne und Strahl-Licht und Wärme. Immer und überall, wo Sie sind. http://bit.ly/10cGxtW
      Den Link leitet zum Blogposten vom letzem Jahr wo ich darüber schrieb.
      Mit solchen Schnäpchen (diese Escada Jacke für nur $ 129.00) kann man ja auch mit Recht lachen! Dafür bin ich sehr dankbar mit meine ständige Figur (seid ich 15 war...) und Grösse 34 bleibt immer im Outlet bis es oft 80% Rabatt gibt! Dagegen kann ich nicht mal selber nähen. Und Escada hat mich immer tadelos gepasst.
      Ganz lieber Gruss und noch ein schöner Pfingst Montag!

  10. What a beautiful person you are Mariette
    and beautiful greenery that surrounds you, I see them
    the sun shines on you ..... here in the north of Italy
    there are floods and then it rains!
    I wish you a nice Sunday

    1. Dearest Susy,
      So sorry for the floods... Italy got already enough trouble caused by Mother Nature!
      Thanks for your compliments; I'm lucky for having inherited great genes and for staying the way I was since 15. Also size 34 stays on the racks in the Outlets till 60 or 80% off. Can't beat that with sewing your own clothes.
      We had a good shower an hour ago but now it's finally sunny again.
      Happy Pentecost Monday to you!

      Gracias por el cumplido. Sí, soy muy afortunado con mi tamaño alemán de 34 para encontrar siempre las mejores ofertas en la salida (Outlet) de Escada. Estoy muy bendecida con mi figura que desde mis 15 es el mismo.
      Feliz lunes de Pentecostés y abrazos,

    You always look so elegant and completely at ease in your lovely clothes.

    Tiggy-Tiger looks like a mini version of Aloysius, who currently weight in a twelve and a half pounds. Kitty cousins!

    We have had a stretch of warm sunny weather with rain where is should be.....at night!

    Enjoy the week..........xxx...*s*

    1. Dearest Suzi,
      Thanks for your compliment. At least for one day a week I can dress up... other than jeans or shorts! Aloysius does have a look-alike in mini form; that's for sure. We had heavy rain at night and again an hour ago but now bright sunshine again.

      Danke, ja die Tiggy-Tiger ist sehr fein und auch 'hyper' und süss. Ihr habt ja in Metzingen auch so ein Escada Outlet Center aber ja, es muss genau passen. Ich bin gesegnet mit Grösse 34 seid ich 15 war... und immer Schnäppchen da es nicht die meist gekaufte Grösse ist. Dagegen kann man nicht selber nähen; für das Geld bekommt man nicht mal den Stoff.

  18. Mariette you look lovely in your Escada outfit and I love the color combo of this one. Here, we do celebrate Pentecost weekend, and I understand it's celebrated all over Latin America too. I had lots of dinner parties this weekend..3 in total and I do dress up a little, all our friends do too, so it's great! I have a post you are going to love, because it's Dutch..come over!

    Wilde nog reageren op je post met je Hot Pants...en je killing legs, maar dat schoot erbij in en toen kwam het er niet meer van...en ja, ik heb ooit een hotpants gehad, toen ik 13 was....en bij de nonnen op school zat, en dat werd daar dus niet getolereerd.. nu noem ik het gewoon een korte broek, maar heb ze niet zo vaak meer aan, vind mijn benen niet mooi meer...
    En toch wel fijn voor alle mensen die op grote afstand wonen dan hun (naaste) familie, wat is internet dan toch een gave uitvinding...vroeger moest alles met de telefoon, nu kun je elkaar gewoon zien en is het niet meer zo duur, ja...de Jetsons komen tot leven.:)

    I have seen your lovely comments on Joan's and Dimi's blogs for a while already, so I thought I'd visit your blog... which happens to be lovely! So here I am... an Italian-German artist, language teacher and cat lover living in the Italian Alps and often visiting the Greek islands of the Aegean... my "home away from home"...
    Love your kitty! :)

  28. I hope everyone who celebrates Pentecost had great weekend! We had heavy storm on Saturday night and lost power for a while. Glad it came back before too long. I hope you had safe and nice weekend.

    You look very lovely in your Escada suit, Mariette! I love the rose corsage, it's simple and pretty.
