Dress? Handmade,  thrifted  (similar but dressier) Shoes? Marc Fisher, Winners Belt? Roots, thrifted 
Clutch? Cecconi Piero, Winners Necklace? Gift from Merl

If you had told me years ago that at 28 years old, I would have something in common with Angelina Jolie, I would have assumed it would have been the having 6 kids thing... I am Dutch after all.
Instead I had my Angelina Jolie moment when we were taking pictures and I was trying to show the slit in this maxi dress. And while she went the dramatic route (if you have no idea what I am talking about, please click the link so this post makes some sense) and stuck her leg out like it was flagging a cab on a rainy day during rush hour, I just gave up after some weak attempts. It's hard to do! Her right leg has since acquired a twitter account and has over 45,000 followers.
Everyone measures success and fame differently but I won't ever think I have 'made it' until I have more followers than a leg at the Academy Awards...

i adore that dress. actually, i love everything about your outfit.

also, i may be the only one who thinks this, but i really think that's the most awkward picture of a person and their leg, even if it is angelina jolie. i hope that makes you feel more successful ;)

Sometimes when I'm feeling really feisty I threaten to slap matt with an Angelina leg. No joke. We're weird. Ummmm hello can we talk about your awesome hair!

You're so funny! (About the leg which I had no prior knowledge of.)
The belt was so unexpected but looks wonderful and coolly ties in with the braiding on the clutch and the necklace.Lovely, the whole lot! Mrs. H

love your blog! My sister (Tamsen Donker) just told me yesterday that you had a fashion blog as well and might be thinking about being a stylist? She just gathered that from your blog, but you definitely have the talent!

Anyways, you've got a new follower :) This is Kailee Lodder btw, I've never met you, which is weird because we are both Dutch and that rarely happens haha. Here's a link to the blog I'm slowly but surely working on :) http://www.themannikin.com/blog/

It should not be used as personnel lift without the fitting of specific safety equipment, such as "cherry picker" or "cage". This guy might have his little establishment where he hires people and takes small contracts. The main advantages of warehouse receipt financing in terms of risk management: The identity of the collateral is less contestable and the intention of the borrower to pledge it is clear, avoiding ownership disputes and competing claims. The collateral can be auctioned or quickly and inexpensively be sold if there is a loan default A lender that a warehouse receipt can claim against the issuer (the warehouse company) as the borrower in case the collateral missing in a bankruptcy scenario a document of title may cut off the claims of unsecured creditors. Warehouse receipts can be negotiable or non-negotiable. Because of the movability of this lift truck piece of equipment, you can use it almost anywhere you need to.
