Shop till you drop Wednesday

Whahaha my blogtitle implies that I've been shopping and came home with lots of bags but since I'm addicted to Tante Betsy dresses, I mostly shop online.
I don't wear anything else than Tante Betsy dresses, okay a pair of leggings in a bright colour is something I always look out for when I'm shopping in real life stores, or a cute top or vest...a pair of boots...you get the picture.

But you can also buy Tante Betsy dresses in real life stores, in the south of the Netherlands where I live, the nearest store which sells Tante Betsy dresses is in Venlo. 
But I prefer to go a bit further and visit Pantalone in Eindhoven. 
I visited them once I loved shopping over there, I was actually shopping for another dress, but next time I will definitely be looking/shopping for Tante Betsy dresses ;). 

More Tante Betsy stores you can find on Tante Betsy's webshop at this link http://www.tantebetsy.com/nl/verkooppunten
and wow what do I see an update with lots of stores to choose from and also in Danmark.
I even see one in my birthtown...Maastricht...yeahhh!
Tante Betsy herselves ships worldwide by the way. 

There are more dresses to come in Tante Betsy's webshop (these above will be there this week ;)) also vests and hoodies I read on Tante Betsy's Facebook page...yeah love the hoodie vests!
Love the long sweatshirt vests, they are a great quality and I wear them these days on a daily basis.

Today I'm wearing a blue legging or actually I made a legging from kids thermo tights from the 'Action', size 164/170, normally I need a Large or an XL in legging which I buy in Germany.
I couldn't resist myself and put on my latest Tante Betsy dress, dress Bibi Red, I love it and it matches perfectly with the legging and my Tante Betsy sweatervest. 

Have a great evening girls! Tomorrow I will share some great Instagram pictures. 

Today there was better light than last night ;). 

Lots of love from Susan

Dress Red Tuesday

Today it's Dress Red Day...Dress Red Tuesday on this blog ;).
It's a special day to give attention and get more awareness to heart and vane deceases amongst women in the Netherlands. 

I had a young stroke when I was 38 years old, now 10 years ago and I always try to wear something red on this special day. It's also about the same date as I had my stroke (26/27th of September). 
You can read about it on my other blog 365 dagen creatief;

I love Red, it's one of my favourite colours next to Orange and Pink. 
So it's a great day to wear one of my favourite Tante Betsy dresses. 
Patricia shared her picture wearing the same Tante Betsy dress, as you can see, she made the dress a bit longer. 

But I'm waiting for my newest Tante Betsy dress to arrive, Bibi Red, oh so looking forward to it...so excited...I actually need to get out of the house to do some grocery shopping but don't want the miss out on the delivery/package man whahaha. 
Above a picture of Tante Betsy herself in dress Betsy Red :). 

But that's okay, I took my rest and relaxed in the sunshine on our terrace in the garden, it's a beautifull sunny day in the Netherlands. 
This great picture above is from Inger-Margrethe, she shared it with me. I love this one <3. 

But also have been searching on Instagram for pics of happy Tante Betsy dresses. 
Yess I have an Instagram account now; https://instagram.com/365happytantebetsydresses/
if you have Instagram and you have Tante Betsy pictures to share, just tag me ;). 

Love her way of making pictures...some great shoes as well :D. 

Thumbs up from Esther/Espiratie

Because of me driving everybody crazy with my Tante Betsy dresses addiction on my other blog, Tante Betsy is now also Esther her favourite brand :).

Oh looks so good on you the Betsy Red <3

The Tante Betsy pictures I share in this blogpost, are all accepted by the girls who shared it on their Instagram account or at the Facebook page 365 days of happy Tante Betsy dresses. 

Oh finally the Tante Betsy dresses arrived, yess dresses...
I love the Bibi Red the most, the print is looking so much better in real life, love it, this is definitely going to be one of my favourites. http://www.tantebetsy.com/nl/dress-bibi-red.html

I also received the Mia Red which is also beautiful, but I think a wide neckline is looking better on me. But Petra loved this one much more and thinks it slims me down more ;). 
To be honest I held my breath...whahaha, they are size Large and allthough I lost some weight, maybe an XL suits me better...not sure yet. http://www.tantebetsy.com/nl/dress-mia-red.html

Tante Betsy going wild on Monday

Whahaha now you are thinking what did Tante Betsy do?
Well she designed some wild dresses some time ago.
One of them I'm wearing today but also found some great pics of other Tante Betsy dresses/lovers on the Danish Facebook group We love Tante Betsy.

I've asked if it was okay for me to share some of these pictures on my blog and yess I have some pics to share with you girls :). 
Otherwise it's going to be pretty boring to only see pictures of me wearing Tante Betsy dresses. 

Okay I've got a lot of them, 36 and some new Tante Betsy dresses on their way ;) but to fill 365 days of Tante Betsy dresses is a lot. 
I want to keep it interesting and make it also a happy place to visit, a happy community of Tante Betsy lovers. 

And I heard it's also very nice to see for other Tante Betsy dress lovers how a dress looks on me or on you girls. I wear size XL in the last collection but I also wear a Large in lots of older models. 

Here a picture of me on my iPhone, which I mounted on the tripod ;). Love my new way of making pictures! This picture is made with my iPad :p.
Do you see me? You will have to click on the picture ;) whahaha. 

Allright girls here are some Danish women in wild Tante Betsy dresses in animal prints.

This is Susanne, I love this great pic! Thanks that I can use it :D. 

A lovely collage from Pernille, to cute <3. More pics of her to come!

This is Inger, I made a collage of her pictures. Hope you are okay with that Inger.
Thanks for sharing your pictures girls :). Big hug!

Don't forget about Dress Red Day tomorrow! I will be wearing a red Tante Betsy dress and will tell you more about this special day, and why it's also special to me. 

Lots of love from Susan

Flea market Sunday

Today it was flea market time.
First on our way in our Classic Mini Cooper to Germany to a 'trödelmarkt' in Aachen, where they sell new and used goods. 
By the way this Mini isn't ours but it suited my dress ;). 

I felt like putting on my dress Holiday today, love this dress, it makes me feel like if I'm on holiday in Austria again. 
I've been on holiday in Austria as a little child and we have been picking and eating strawberries in the woods. 
So this dress brings back great memories. 
Thank you dear Tante Betsy for designing such a great dress!

I also took along my blue Tante Betsy vest, I love them! 
I have three of these vests, a pink one and a black one. Hope to score a green one because I'm really fond of them. 

After our visit to Aachen, we went to Neerbeek where there was a garage sale throughout the whole village. 
Bought myself a pair of full leather cowboy boots from the brand Frida for just a couple of euro's. 
I still need a pink pair of leather boots so hope I can paint them pink ;). Will ask a leather specialist if he can help me out or search on the internet for pink leather paint. 

After that we visited friends, they were on their way to a pumpkin market, so we went along...
That huge pumpkin went back home with our friends ;). 
And you can see a pair of sneakers can be worn underneath a dress, I love the Asics sneakers.

Dear girls would love to see pictures of you in Red Tante Betsy dresses. Tuesday it's Dress Red Day (will tell more about it on tuesday) in the Netherlands and would love to share pictures of you wearing a Red Tante Betsy dress or outfit!
Share them on my Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/365daysofhappytantebetsydresses Thanks :D.

Flowerfull Saturday

Today I'm wearing a blue flowerfull dress of Tante Betsy, dress Bouquet.
I haven't been wearing this one for a long time but it's a great dress from an older collection. 

I love flowerprints and I'm happy that Tante Betsy keeps on designing dresses with flowerprints. 

Especially for this picture I put my recently washed Tante Betsy dresses outside in the sun, for a beautifull background...there are not that many flowers in our garden anymore ;). 

These pictures of me are made by myself ;), not with a selfie stick anymore but with the holder of my iPhone on a tripod. A great solution to get better pictures of my whole outfit :). 

Did you see that the first dresses and skirts from the autumn/wintercollection are online in Tante Betsy's webshop? http://www.tantebetsy.com/nl/
I picked a beautifull dress, you will soon see which one I picked. 

It wasn't an easy choice, love the Bibi dresses, love the wide neckline (don't know if that's the right word), they suit me well.

Dress Mia Green is also one of my favourites...

But my heart went out to this black one (on the left), but it's not in the webshop yet, so I will have to be a bit more patient. 
Allthough I can imagine that when this model comes into Tante Betsy's webshop, I will also fall in love with the other colours ;) whahaha.

Have a great weekend!

Happy Friday (and Thursday ;)) Dress

My very first real blogpost on 365 days of happy Tante Betsy dresses

Yesterday I did a fotoshoot with my selfie stick in dress Rosalie. So I have some pictures to share with you girls. 
The last couple of days I'm wearing my long sleeved models from Tante Betsy.

Autumn is here and the desire comes to wear more long sleeved models, allthough it's still possible to wear short sleeved models combined with a nice vest or a long t-shirt underneath (above I wear dress Betsy Black like that).  

At this moment I still have more short sleeved Tante Betsy dresses then long sleeved, but I'm sure this will change over time. 
Tante Betsy her new collection is coming in her webshop and in real life stores these days. 

We have all been waiting for them to arrive. 
I saw allready some pictures of them, really promising. 38 dresses shared the pictures above http://www.38dresses.nl/c-2973383/tante-betsy/
I'm sure lots of us girls have to make choices what dresses to order/to buy...
Or maybe you prefer skirts. 

I prefer dresses, I only wear dresses these days...Tante Betsy dresses mainly. That's also one of the reasons for my blog, I'm so fond of them, I love them. I'm addicted to this great Dutch brand and not because it's Dutch but because these dresses make me happy. 

Today I'm wearing dress Senorita Pink, I have been thinking of selling this one but now I'm wearing it again it still makes me feel good. 
I love polkadots, one of my favourite colours is pink :). 
Today I'm also wearing my Neosens boots, I love boots, these have a great victorian look and combined with a pink legging they are perfect together. 
I also wear a necklace I made myselves, red en pink beads combined with rose quartz beads, so some extra power :D. 

Please go and share your pictures on my Facebook page 365 days of happy Tante Betsy dresses https://www.facebook.com/365daysofhappytantebetsydresses
Petra (above together with daughter Marit) and Patricia allready shared one, thanks girls!

365 days of happy Tante Betsy dresses

Hi I'm Susan and I live in the Netherlands and I'm addicted to Tante Betsy dresses.
They make me feel happy and it's also the slogan of Tante Betsy herselves 'Happiness in a dress'. 

I blog for almost 4 years on another blog and lately I'm driving everybody crazy for my love for Tante Betsy dresses, online but also in real life. 

At this moment I own 36 Tante Betsy dresses and wear every day a Tante Betsy dress, rarely I wear a different Dutch brand.
I came across this great Dutch brand only since last november 2014 and just love them. This green one was my very first :). 

But to make this blog 365 days of happy Tante Betsy dresses, I need some help from you girls to post pictures and share your love for Tante Betsy dresses with us.
Otherwise it will be pretty boring for you to only see pictures of me ;).

So girls share your pictures, maybe you allready have one wearing a Tante Betsy dress.
Make some selfies or ask somebody else to make one. 

This blog is not owned or managed by Tante Betsy herselves in any way!!
Yes that's her with some dresses of the new autumn/winter collection 2015, really soon to come :). 

This is and will be my personal blog.
So don't ask me questions about a delivery of a dress you ordered or whatever it is you need to address to Tante Betsy herselves. 

Sure we (and we is you girls and I) will do our utmost to help eachother if you have questions about a certain dress. But please keep in mind that we don't have all the answers. 

It's just a way to share and show my love for Tante Betsy dresses with you girls and to make a warm and loving community where we share our love for these happy dresses. 

The blog will be in English, keep in mind that I'm Dutch, so it won't allways be perfect English.
But I also ask you girls to only post and reply in English so everybody can read what you write.
So no Dutch, Danish, German comments please or in any other language, only in English. 

I do love blogland, I call it a warm blanket... So please girls be kind, be respectfull, be gentle to eachother and only respond in positive ways.
Lets make this a happy place to visit. 

Have fun reading my blogposts, I will do my utmost to share one every day.
Share your Tante Betsy dresses pictures on Facebook,
But please also add a little bit information about yourselves or the dress and how it makes you feel, when you post a picture.
And if you want me to post it, please give me permission to use it on my blog.

Lots of love from Susan
