The Delfts Blue Theme
Holland is known for its windmills and Delfts blue . The skirt I’m wearing today, kind of reminded me of that blue , but… different
A lot of great brands have used this theme in there collections as you can see on these pictures.
Delfts Blue is found on many different things such as; on tills, clothes, writings, bedlinen, curtains and many more. There are even people who’s wedding is in a Delfts Blue theme. So nice..
In our country you’ll see it everywhere. In the ‘Markthal’ in Rotterdam for instance. Other locations in and around Delft, where visitors can see the earthenware, are: De Delftse Pauw and in the many souvenir shops around the central market square (Grote Markt) in Delft.
Delft Blue is the world-famous earthenware that has been produced in the city of Delft since the 17th century. This earthenware was popular among rich families who would show off their Delft Blue collections to one another. There were 33 factories in Delft. Of all of these factories. The only one that has remained in operation since 1653 is ‘de Koninklijke Porceleyne Fles’, known as Royal Dutch.
If you love it, you love it, it’s all hand-painted!
My Blue beaded skirt
When I ordered this beautiful skirt from Mango, I thought it was woven, but it turned out to be a beaded skirt which feels quite heavy! However you don’t notice the weight when you’re wearing it and the beading gives it a very special look. I’ve personally never seen a skirt like this before, neither the people around me because my-o-my, even the police trumpeted their claxon haha. The skirt is a little short -it’s a mini skirt- so keep that in mind when you order it.
I’m wearing a Blue blouse and:
Heels from van Haren and my Goldapple-necklace from my grandmother. The blouse is in an eye-catching royal blue color, has a nice V-neckline and is made from a flowy fabric; perfect for (a) Summer (Night out).
