Amsterdam: meet Pia


Everyone loves Pia's fabulously pretty, fresh and smart blog, so I was thrilled to meet this amazing girl in the flesh.

With Benjy in tow of course, we went for a walk and drinks in Amsterdam where she lives and chatted endlessly like old friends. She gave me plenty of tips about the city. Pia is so nice, fun and interesting it was absolutely a treat to spend time with her, and it made her blog even more precious to me.

Sneak a peek at her style: her cool bike, her oh so colorful bag and her elegant shoes... Too bad you can't see her smile and her sparkling eyes: like many people who were trained as photographers, pretty Pia is camera-shy.
And tomorrow we'll see more Amsterdam styles in an I Spy post!

Everyone loves not only Pia's blog but also, as I am finding out, her style, especially her lovely shoes.
Pia, we're all your fans!

Marie - I love Pia's basket too! I could fit in it of course but it made me a bit nervous, you see.

Pia - I was delighted to meet you too, and hope to see you soon in Amsterdam or Paris.
I may be cute but so are you!

August - actually I have found that meeting people through blogs is really fun! I met Ronda from All The Best, Jen from Tango Baby, Frederique from Miss Glitzy, all adorable, and am looking forward to meeting Marie from Là, in addition to Pia.
How fun is that...
