Today was preparation day for tomorrow. Tomorrow is our last Queen's Day for a long time. Our queen Beatrix has abdicated and tomorrow our new king Willem Alexander will be installed. This is truly the end of an era.
My girlfriends and I dress up for Queen's Day every year; one of those friends always make our costumes. Here's a small impression of what we will wear.
This is one of the underskirts, still waiting to be finished.
C. and I will wear this blue seventies dress, which is decorated with a lot of coloured pieces of fabric.
My sister and her eldest daughter came over to celebrate Queen's Day. We walked into town (Amsterdam) and saw the colours of our national flag everywhere.
