Taking photos with Greetje



There are times when two friends  share something different from shopping 


And spend two days together


Taking photos


And strolling 


in ancient streets.


They enjoy modern art 


( sometimes not easy to understand 


but beautifully situated in historic contexts ).



They also had a third day, of course ... dedicated to shopping!


Even if I had promised to keep her away from temptations ... I knew  that Greetje of No Fear of Fashion, wouldn't  have left Italy without buying new clothes !!

  2. Looking lovely! But I knew it wouldn't all be shopping-free! LOL I'm surprised you managed to keep her away from the shops for two days! Did you have her chained up? Ha ha!

  3. This was such a lovely long weekend. I could really do this more often. Fortunately for my savings, Transavia doesn't fly to Turin until April. I thought the art tour was terrific and of course your styling advice at Max Mara... priceless.

  4. How wonderful illusion and see two of my best friends together. How wonderful to see you as beautiful and elegant at two, with beautiful, elegant, modern and attractive looks. I love your look in the second photo, and I love seeing your coats of colors, so wonderful. Greetje already told us that you enjoyed buying. Surely you are a wonderful personal shopper.

    1. Greetje always finds something to take home with her!

      During the day we have sandwiches and cappuccinos and for dinner we always prefer a restaurant which serves tipical Italian food ...

  8. Dan, I think this post is so much fun! You two look as though someone styled you to look well together! Love the outfits ( great coats!) and photos. I love modern art, too, although some of it is a bit mistifying! Oh, that cappuccino! I am not surprised that Greetje found a few treasure there!

    1. Staying with Greetje in Italy is always very pleasant and this time it was more than just doing shopping together...in Turin there are interesting projects on modern art at the moment and we enjoyed the tour through courtyards!
      p.s.
      Cappuccinos have very nice decoration ! I think ... I should think of a post on the subject!!

  15. Some amazing photos of the artwork. Sounds like a great mix of things you two enjoyed - shopping (always good), enjoying the surroundings, eating and friendship. What could be better. And Greetje's yellow coat is the finishing touch!
