{Via col Vento Dublin, GA - Oktoberfest and my Dirndls}

Saturday evening we met with our best friends for a special Oktoberfest. Lady Chef Maria from our Italian-Coffee and Wine Bar: Via col Vento - Dublin, GA did treat us to authentic German fare. By the way, Via col Vento means 'Gone With the Wind' in Italian. Maria is the Lady Chef of Ristorante da Maria at +Dublin Farm "Come Home To The Country" 
So out came the Dirndls for wearing again. How I still miss my Salzburger Dirndl with roses... You will see those photos below. Scroll down and have a look.
My authentic German Dirndl what I wore on Saturday.
Husband Pieter in his outfit...
Both of us did pose in front of our Canary Island Palm, with of course one of our felines always in the picture!
It was a great evening - sorry I did  not take any photos.
Previously our best friends in Dublin have hosted several bi-annual Oktoberfest for some 300 people.
Here is Pieter's brother Toon to the left, with his Wilhelmien.
Both of them are no longer alive but we have fond memories of 2002.
How I wish I still had my Salzburger Dirndl... it had roses on it!
This is in the Eifel, Germany in 1971.
Here I wear the Salzburger Dirndl too, overlooking the River Meuse in Kessel, The Netherlands.

Do you also have a Dirndl or any outfit for going to the Oktoberfest?
In Munich it was this year the 176th Oktoberfest but I learned that it is being celebrated now the world over. Even Down Under!


  1. you are so cute - then and now. :)

  2. Dearest Mariette. What a fun post, and how cute you looked back then - and still do - in that traditional dress. My neighborhood will host an Oktoberfest party next weekend. Unfortunately, I will not have anything quite that nice to wear, but it will be fun to celebrate with friends. Veronique (French Girl in Seattle)

  3. Liebe Mariette,
    das erinnert mich, dass ich als Jugendliche auch ein Salzburger Dirndl hatte, aber es hatte ganz winzinge Rosen. Ein Dirndl ist immer schön und steht jeder Frau. Du siehst prima darin aus, heute genauso wie damals. Das war bestimmt ein lustiges Fest.
    Schöne Grüße, Johanna

  4. Hallo Mariette,
    Wat zie je er leuk uit in je dirndl,zo schattig.
    Lieve groetjes Carine

  5. How darling you look in your dirndles, Mariette, before and now. How nice that you have that sweet photo of Peiter's brother with all of you in your Oktoberfest fancies. Sweet memories in a sweet dirndle. Hugs to you and Happy Oktoberfest! xx

  6. Liebe Mariette,

    es sieht fabelhaft bei dir aus.

    Sonnige Grüße


  7. Liebe Mariette, fesch siehst du aus in deinem Dirndl - und dein Mann in seiner zünftigen Lederhose!!! Und wie viele wudnerbare Erinnerungen bei dir an diese Tracht geknüpft sind! Ich selbst hatte als Kind Dirndln, mochte sie aber nicht. Ich fand mich verkleidet und ich trug lieber praktische Hosen. Inzwischen besitze ich ein einziges Kleid, das ich als (nicht gerade authentisches ;o)) Dirndl tragen kann, wenn ich eines brauche - ein bodenlanges indisches Baumwollkleid im Dindlschnitt, das ich auch beim Ritteressen als mittelalterliches Kleid trug - siehe dieses Posting ganz unten: http://rostrose.blogspot.co.at/2012/04/fachwerk-und-feinschmeck-elsass-teil-7.html
    Eine wunderbare neue Herbstwoche wünsch ich dir von Herzen!
    Alles Liebe, Traude

  8. Lieve Mariette,je kan zó in de film met je Dirndljurk aan.....en een tegenspeler heb je ook al....zijn naam is Pieter;-)
    Schattig zo jullie beiden,mooi stel!!!

    Dochterlief kreeg toen zij klein was(2/3 jaar) van grootouders 2 keer Dirndljurkje als souvenir meegebracht uit Oostenrijk,ik heb het altijd nog bewaard in koffertje op zolder,een is volgens mij ook met roosjes.

    Het zal een feest geweest zijn met alles erop en eraan.....want feesten kunnen de Duitsers,Limburgers trouwens ook;-)

    Fijne dag en lieve groeten!!

  9. Dearst Mariette,
    WOW ............what a lovely Dirndl! and you look so great! You all look ,like you had lots of fun at the Oktoberfest :O)))
    I also love the Dirndl you worn as a joung Girl :O)
    Have a happy and wonderful week,
    Love and hugs,

  10. I love your outfit! It is so girly. I would wear it on any occasion, not just for Oktoberfest. :)
    And you are still beautiful like 1971! :)

  11. Dearest Mariette ... love your enthusiasm and what fun you must of had Saturday! You are a wonderful reminder to truly enjoy life and every moment to the fullest. Pieter looks quite dapper in his outfit too! Memories are the best gifts in life. Much love to you both..xo C. (HHL)

  12. Great post !

    Love your pictures and articles!!

    A blog like this should definitely be followed so here I am :)

    Hope to see you on mine as well :)



  13. What fun to celebrate Oktoberfest with friends. Sounds like it was a wonderful event. You two look great. One year when I was teaching kindergarten, we had an international festival and my class represented Austria -- so I borrowed a lovely dirndl from a lady who worked here at the Austrian Embassy. I've got pictures around here somewhere. I am not near as organized as you are. Love the pictures from 1971. Best wishes to you, Tammy
    P.S. My cousin taught me to crochet when I was about 20. A flower with leaves in a square -- I made tons and tons of baby and full sized afghans from that one pattern. It's only since blogging that I've been inspired to do more and have actually learned to read patterns. :)

  14. Dearest Mariette,
    Wow, I think I have seen these traditional dress(Dirndl) and also heard about the festival of beer(Oktoberfest) on TV news or something. However, First time to feel directly from friend and wonderful to have a special dress for the occasion; you look really lovely♡♡♡ The picture from 2002 must be so precious for you two! It seems that Japan doesn't follow the foot steps yet, at least I don't know here in Japan. Thank you very much for this special post.
    PS> I was so surprised that you two are also involved in the music activity☆☆☆ Thank you so much that your comment gave me an insight about the field. No wonder you gave me a tip that my husband might like the "swing girls" long time ago although it is not a movie about classic(*^_^*) 
    Sending you lots of love and hugs from Japan, xoxo Miyako*

  15. Hhahahahaha...zo grappig dit...je ziet er goed uit hoor toen en nu....liefs van mij;....xxx...

  16. Hahahahaha...je ziet er goed uit hoor....zo grappig.....toen en nu.....liefs van mij...xxx...

  17. sei fortissima con questi abiti...sono molto belli e particolari...un abbraccio grande Lory

  18. Mariette Dear,

    I don't have it ;( unfortunately. By the way...you look soooooooooo gorgeous as always. Happy monday

  19. Leuk, en nee, ik heb geen Dirndljurk, maar wil er nog wel eens eentje maken, heb pas patronen van een mede lingerie naaister doorgemaild gekregen, nu nog een tijdboompje vinden...;)

  20. Je ziet er prachtig uit in je Dirndl jurk Mariette. Je bent ook zo mooi slank! Ik heb het idee dat het dragen van een Dirndl jurk hier in Holland ook een soort 'in' is. Je kunt ze steeds makkelijker kopen. Ook Pieter en zijn broer zien er prima uit! Ik hoop dat het feest leuk was.

    Fijne week!

    Madelief x

  21. Very nice with oktoberfest and lovely clothes.


  22. How beautiful you look and Pieter looks soooo handsome! I love your Oktoberfest outfit both from 1971 and now. You still have GREAT LEGS!

    Beautiful friend. Beautiful.

    Love, Rebecca

  23. You are so beautiful Mariette, just as beautiful as when you were a young girl. Your husband looks so handsome too! What beautiful clothing and I love how you keep your hair long...I'm determined to never have short hair again also!

    Thank you so much for being such a faithful visitor to my blog, it really means a lot to me to have my true blue bloggy buddies along for my journey. Hugs!

  24. Het staat je geweldig, zowel toen als nu. Ik heb op mijn oudeblog een foto van mijn dirndljurkje (als kind) staan, maar de link lukt nu even niet.
    Bij de tante van tjorven staat ook een foto http://www.detantevantjorven.blogspot.nl/2012/08/tweeling.html#comment-form
    Lieve groet,

  25. Mariette,

    You all looked adorable wearing the German styled clothes for Oktoberfest.


  26. Dear Mariette, you look sooo lovely in these dresses! Your figure hasn't changed a bit since 1971!

  27. Dear Mariette, reading this post and saw your photo make me think of myself... I haven't got your beautiful dress I am in school uniform with long hair and sock like yours... just some old memories in my mind. I don't have any photo mum and dad never have a camera in their life. I was so shy to speak to ask for a school class photo back in 1975, no body ask me do I want one not even the teacher I was just watching everybody's photo and I was so shy to ask for one, how silly I am. Am I to late to ask for one? :-) I should try, keep thinking about it. Email and ask, Yes! :-) 1977 I bought my first camera, we have some lovely photos for X'mas... our first happy family photos with mum and dad and my sisters and brothers for X'mas, need to find my photo now... it all end up at my brother and sister's, no one ask or talk to me about them... I want it back I still got the camera! You look lovely with the dress... love to visit holland again... its a beautiful country, driving down the road watch house by the river the people the boat people look so clam and happy. I was dreaming to live like one of them. Merry Christmas to you and all your love one Marriete. Mei

  28. Chic, liebe Mariette und Ehemann Pieter schaut auch fesch aus! :-)
    Das Salzburger Dirndl mit Rosen ist wirklich sehr schön! Ich hatte als Mädel auch einmal ein Dirndl. Lang ist's her. Das habe ich sogar gern gehabt. Denn sonst mag ich Kleider nicht so sehr gern! Ein Dirndl würde ich zu einem passenden Anlass gewiss auch heute noch tragen. Doch die Gelegenheiten sind so extrem selten, daß ich nie wieder ein Dirndl hatte. Auch auf dem Oktoberfest waren wir noch nie (in München), obwohl wir dort Verwandte haben. Aber dann muß man auch im Oktober Zeit haben und das hatten wir nie.
    Was ist aus Deinem Dirndl geworden? Vielleicht hätte es heute doch nicht mehr gepasst?

    Liebe Grüße


Thanks for your visit and comment.
