BROCANTE MARKET IN HAARLEM WITH SYLVIA
Here you see the whole outfit with the bright blue top which I wore in last week’s post. I wore it again to the brocante market in Haarlem with Sylvia of 40+Style. It is an easy outfit. As I get older, I appreciate ease and comfort more and more. Still wearing the high heels and tighter dresses, but I am getting better in saying no to uncomfortable clothes and shoes.
We will start with the outfits Sylvia and I were wearing. Later on some Street Style photos of other women as well.
Below: Bag Marina Rinaldi from the Max Mara outlet two years ago. Bracelet: Little Mole Boutique. Sandals: my trusted address for comfortable and stylish shoes: Eijk Amsterdam. You can adjust the top strap as there is velcro involved. You cannot see it, but it is heaven when your feet swell in the heat. Trousers are old, as is the belt. Both are items I treasure.
SHOE design makers

Jolanda van Eijk started her career as a fashion designer. She has worked as a freelance designer for several brands like Tommy Hilfiger and Super Trash. In 2014 Jolanda has launched her first footwear collection with an optical high stiletto heel with a distinctive twist. Especially created for women with elegance, who’d like to wear heels all day long.
Mad about heels but getting crazy of sore feet after a long day of running around? That’s exactly what Jolanda van Eijk, owner of Dutch shoe label Eijk, felt like. She developed a clever kind of heel with the look of a stiletto heel but the ease of a wedge, which she attached to a remarkable collection shoes, boots and even sandals!
Jolanda started her shoe label in 2014 after a career in fashion design and a training at the Dutch Shoe Academy. At this academy she learned how to make shoes by hand, a skill she believed she’d had to acquire to understand every single step that is made during the manufacturing of shoes.
Eijk shoes are made in the Italian region Marche – a region that is famous for its craftsmanship in shoe manufacturing. All different parts are being made in multiple specialised workshops by the best shoemakers Jolanda could find. In the end, all parts are being assembled in another workshop after which the footwear finds its way to Eijks headquarters in Amsterdam and further on to an increasing clientele that knows how to appreciate a clever, edgy and still comfortable high heeled piece of footwear.
No Fear of Fashion on Eijk Joan Cream
hit the jackpot with these cream booties. Because…:
- I love cream booties. No…, I adore cream booties and boots
- they have an elegant heel and some height but feel like flat shoes
- I can wear my support soles in them
- they are modern and look awesome with skinnies
- and most of all…. I can wear them with bare feet and from the moment I put them on, I could shop on them all day long
Now isn’t that fantastic? I love them to death. They are by a Duch brand called Eijk, based in Amsterdam, but are also sold in more places. And online. OK, they are not cheap. Stupid me, I forgot to check the price before trying them on and found out how much they were at the pay desk. But perhaps that was faith. Because I might not have tried them, had I known the price beforehand. And missing out on them would have been a shame as they are so worth the price. No, I do not get any money or gifts for this review. I bought them myself. Just being very enthusiastic. Every woman should have such shoes.
