{My Escada & RED Valentino Score}

With my European size 34, or US size 4, I often do find incredible bargains at Outlets or on line. 
Let me show you what I wore on Easter Sunday...
Happy on Easter Sunday in my new outfit...
Lambsnappa skirt from Escada with also Escada low heeled pumps.
RED Valentino sweater and my Ferragamo bag that I received as a gift from my boss in Indonesia.
The canvas with leather Ferragamo bag goes very well with this outfit.
Skirt from behind with blind zipper, darts and walking slit.
Yes, both of us have always received precious gifts from people we did consulting for and I do treasure this Salvatore Ferragamo bag!
The skirt was brandnew, never worn with tags still on and spare button in bag as usual with Escada.
European size 34 or US size 4...
Found on eBay under items listed NWT (New With Tag). Nobody bid on it so I snatched this away for only $ 49.99!
Saks Fifth Avenue Off 5th took care of the perfect sweater!
On December 23, they offered the already 41% marked off RED Valentino sweater, for an extra 40% off!
That's how one can own a couture top from RED Valentino that was $ 495.00 for $ 173.99...
Saving $ 321.01
For the entire outfit a good score; considering the leather skirt was such a steal!
Got this sweater in a Medium as I do not like to wear it tight fitting.
On such a bright, sunny day it was rather hard to capture its true color...
Detail from the front pockets...
You also can see the gilded thread in this RED Valentino sweater.
Very happy with this new set!
Pantyhose are from the +Wolford Colonnade Outlets at +Sawgrass Mills in Florida.
Our yellow Carolina jasmines blooming so pretty!
Yellow + Sunshine makes one HAPPY!
Those yellow heart earrings I have for decades already...
Our Barty boy loves rolling in the dry leaves and catkins and he wants to be near me all the time!

Hope you also enjoyed a sunny Easter Sunday!

      Thank you dear friend; it was a blessed Easter day for both of us! Our furbabies are so happy whenever the sun is shining and they love to frolic around in the garden.
      Hope your snow has disappeared by now as we all do long for sunny days and blossoms around us.
      Hugs and blessings to both of you and your cute furbabies.

      Yes you say it so right, size 34 almost always stays on the rack and I get things for a steal. Even the more I enjoy wearing it.

  12. You look stunning in your outfit, Mariette! And what a great deal you've got. Love your color coordination with yellow earrings, skirt, shoes, AND yellow carolina jasmines :-)
    I don't like tight fitting, either, so I usually get rather larger size for me.
    Looks like Barty had fun rolling on the dry leaves :-) Have a wonderful day, Mariette!

  16. Very pretty and stylish, my Dear Mariette! You are tiny like my daughter, Jennie - always hard for her to find things that fit her tiny frame. I love the yellow leather with the beautiful sweater and those shoes are just wonderful! Of course, the handbag pulls it all together! I would not have known what color to wear with the yellow skirt but you have found the perfect combination. You look so pretty among the yellow jasmine - like a ray of sunshine! No wonder your little cat wants to be near you. Hugs xo Karen

    1. Dearest Karen,
      Thank you for your kind words and I'm so fortunate for living here in the USA as in The Netherlands it is very hard to find anything in my size. But with so many Asians living here, your daughter Jennie and I will find always something in this huge market.
      Our yellow jasmines are so lovely, had to get them in the picture too. Barty is my cat, he is always near me an often wants to sit on my lap when I read blogs in the evening. Whenever I'm in the garden, he's next to me!
      Hugs,
      Mariette

  19. Ma chère Mariette, you look simply stunning in that outfit. I'm in love w/that great top, and you put everything together so beautifully. It's what I call classic with an edge. Great color combination, too.

    We went to Easter Vigil Mass. It's my favorite Mass of the year. Walking into a darkened church and then having everyone's candle lit by the Paschal candle as we sing "You Are the Light of the World" is such a moving experience.

    When I was young, I looked forward to Christmas, but as I've aged, Easter has become the high point of the liturgical calendar for me.

    I made Easter dinner for the two of us w/Dan's favorite dishes, at his request. Lovely day.

    Cheers, my dear friend,

    Big Bisous, M-T

      Thank you very much for your compliment and coming from such an expert like you it means even more to me! These colors came together so well and I was very pleased with the way it turned out in reality. One never can know exactly the color from a photo on line.
      We don't have an Easter Vigil Mass here as we have only a rather small community, unlike in your region but I always have loved it too. To me Easter is a much happier time because of the weather! We too had only Easter dinner for the two of us but we had a lovely and happy time.

  21. Steht Dir sehr gut, liebe Mariette! Ich selbst trage Gelb nie, mußte als Kind mal ein für mich schreckliches gelbes Kleid tragen ;-) Seither mag ich diese Farbe nicht mehr, vor allem bei Kleidung. Danke auch für Deinen Tipp bezüglich der Hosen. Escada hatte ich noch nie. Du schriebst schon mal, daß das Hosen für Langbeinige wären. Die kämen dann für mich ja eher nicht infrage. ;-) Obwohl man sie kürzen kann, aber die Erfahrung zeigt oft, daß die sonstigen Proportionen dann auch nicht stimmen. Denn bei einigen Menschen ist der Oberkörper länger, bei anderen kürzer und da muß das Verhältnis dann auch stimmen. Aber ich werde die Tipps der Reihe nach durchgehen. Irgendwas wird sich finden. Ich probiere die Kleidung am liebsten vor Ort. Die Hin- und Herschickerei mag ich nicht so gern. Vieles paßt nicht und man muß es immer wieder zurücksenden oder doppelt- und dreifach bestellen, weil die Größen nicht stimmen.

    Liebe Grüße und noch einen schönen sonnigen Tag .... bei uns hier ist es jedenfalls sehr schön und gleich gehts in den Garten.

    1. Liebe Sara,
      Gelb mag ich sehr gerne da es so eine sonnige Farbe ist. Da wir auch im subtropischen Klima leben kann es also sehr gut hier. Hosen kürzen ist überhaupt kein Problem und hat nichts mit den den sonstigen Proportionen zu tun. Wenn du deine Grösse kennst ist es einfach zu bestellen, dass geht heutzutage so rasch und ohne Risiko auch. Immerhin, Metzingen ist für euch so nah!
      Hier ist es fast sommerlich und ich werde unser Balkon mal sauber machen. Es ist voller Kätzchen der immergrüne Eiche.
      Liebe Grüsse,
      Mariette
