Looking back at 2014


Just before 2015 starts.. I thought it would be nice to look back at the positive things of 2014 and leave the bad things behind! :P

So with that said, I'm just going to leave you with a selection of the outfits I've worn. I'll leave the jibber jabber for the next blog post in 2015. :)

Also in video form! Happy New Year everyone and see you all in 2015!  :)

Merry Christmas - Happy Holidays.. and all that good stuff! :)


Yay! It's the end of the year.. time to celebrate whatever it is that strikes your fancy! For me, it means that I have some days off and the opportunity to get some highly needed rest and relaxation. The photos in this blog post are not my best.. I really look tired and I have to admit that producing my trademark smile was a bit more difficult than usual. Then again, this has been a turbulent year!

Also, since I did buy this cute sexy miss Santa outfit.. my plan was to find a Christmas tree and shoot some festive fun photos. Sadly enough, I wasn't able to find a tree, so I had to make do with this small rubber tree equipped with a LED light that changes colour. :-P

Somewhere next week, after the Christmas festivities have passed.. I will write a retrospective blog post on the year 2014 and my hopes and dreams for 2015.

In the meantime, I do hope that all of you are enjoying these last two weeks of 2014 and that you are sharing it with your loved ones! :)

One of my intentions for next December is to do a proper Miss Santa shoot, that's for sure! :-P

I also made a short Christmas video in some of the worst lighting conditions ever (memo to me: never just have light from above). Still I hope you enjoy!  :)

A black leather dress - part 2


So this is the second blog post and video of me in the black leather dress, but now I changed my high heeled stiletto pumps for high heeled stiletto sandals. I know.. it's a small difference in words.. but I think it makes a huge difference in the overall look!

Also, as you might have noticed, I painted my toe nails in a red colour! I usually don't do this because a) I'm too lazy.. and b) I do a lot of sports where my bare feet might be showing. And since not everyone knows of this side of me, it might be a big shock to the unsuspecting team mates! :P

Also.. another thing that has changed since the last video is that I have gone bare legged again as it is my preferred way of showing legs.

I'm keeping this post sweet, short and simple, since there's not much more to say other than the fact that I'm still totally in love with this look! I will be posting a 3rd and final blog post with this dress, just to announce the 3rd and final video of me in this dress.

So, if you are really into painted toe nails (and I know that there are plenty out there who are!), then I hope you enjoy this video! :)

A black leather dress - part 1


If you look at most of my outfits, it's usually dresses, probably black.. sometimes other colours.. and more often than not.. my dresses (and skirts) are very short!

One thing that I have never really worn for a proper photo and video shoot was a sexy leather dress and it has always been something on my list. As soon as I saw this dress.. I knew what had to be done!

My (not so) secret love for this kind of femme-fatale hitwomen look is probably because of all those movies where some bad-ass female sexy agent was dressed all in leather kicking ass and taking names!!

And usually she would doing all these karate kicks while wearing high heels and brandishing a gun. Perhaps an idea for a later video. :-P

The heels I'm wearing here are very sexy 5 inch stiletto heeled patent pumps from ASOS and what I absolutely adore about these heels is how super thin these heels are!!

How awesome would it be if I could play in an action movie where I would be a boring guy during the day and a sexy secret female agent during the night?! Ah.. a girl can dream, right?  ;-)

Just so you all know,.. I did another session with this same dress where I'm wearing my stiletto heeled sandals of the last video... but this time... I painted my painted toe nails! :-D

Sometimes, with certain outfits, I might decide not to bug other people to take videos of me. Of course, with this sexy dress.. there was NO way I would let that opportunity pass. So I hope you really enjoy this video!

Short and skimpy.. my first outfit when it get warm again!


Looking at other people's blogs, Facebook or Flickr posts.. I've noticed that a lot of us can't wait until it's summer again! And since I have yet to do a photo-shoot in a warm winter outfit.. why not post these pictures of me in a skimpy dress.. during warmer times? :-P

This is a cute pink, and yes.. very short revealing dress by Forever 21. I got it in the sale for less than 10 euros! What can I say.. I'm a cheap girl! I'd rather have a lot of stuff so that I can mix and match and create different outfits than spend a lot of money on just one dress. Shoes are of course the exception!

The black strappy sandals with 5 inch high stiletto heels are also from Forever 21.. and I just adore them! The next time I will make sure that my nails are painted red! :)

The trouble with these kind of dresses is that you always have to check whether you're decent and not exposing stuff that should remain hidden. So, this is exactly what I'm doing in the pic above. :-P

These photos were from the get-away weekend in September and this is the last outfit of that weekend.  I actually packed a lot of different outfits, but I ended up not wearing most of them, because a) I was a little under the weather and b) I was not alone.. and I actually wanted to be the photographer and not the subject for a change! ;-)

So yeah, I'm definitely not a winter girl, though I hope to wear some nice outfits for the colder weather soon. Expect jeans, leggings, boots, coats. I know, it's not as sexy as these skimpy dresses, but hey... soon it will be summer again and then I get to wear this!

I am happy to say that of this dress.. we actually shot some video footage! So while again, it's not much more than me walking around and standing and sitting still.. I still hope you enjoy it!

To dot or not to dot.. that's the question

This will be another one of those drive-by short blog-posts, since all of the pictures in this set are a bit similar. The winter is getting an early start and especially in the morning.. it's just to freaking freezing cold!

And yeah, I enjoy being warm.. so these months most of my pictures will be indoor,.. unless I go on a tropical holiday! :)

So, this photo-shoot is me in yet another variation of a little black dress, but today.. that's not the point of this post.

Today it's about legs! You all know that when I'm wearing dresses or skirts, I usually go with bare legs. But sometimes I do wear tights.. and as we have established in the previous post.. I love dots, so I was happy as a child when I found these dotted tights! :-D

I get a lot of compliments for my legs, even though in my opinion.. they're far from flawless! They've seen their fair share of scratches and bruises from martial arts and falling off of my bicycle. And there are quite a few scars to prove it. :-P

I do have a few leggings, tights and hosiery in my collection. Mostly, I'm practical about wearing them.. usually when it's either too cold to go with bare legs.. or when I am too lazy to shave them legs. :-P

The heels are cute black t-strap pumps with a 5 inch heel, very cheap from one of the discount shoe stores over here in the Netherlands. While I still want a pair of Louboutins, I'm not above cheap shoes.. especially if they fit and walk perfectly!

Anyway, what's your opinion? With or with tights?

You know I can't be serious *all* the time! :-P

Working on the next bunch of videos, so enjoy the last two!

Red polka-dot dress and red Steve Madden high heels

So yeah.. the theme of this blog-post is RED! :-P

I really like all my dresses.. and there is good chunk of those that I love. And then.. there are a few in my collection that I just flat out L-O-V-E!!! :-D

Natassia Crystal natcrys, red polka-dot dress, outside posing at door

Anyone who's been following my photos on Flickr/Facebook/Instagram or has seen my comments on other people's stuff.. knows that my favourite pattern is the polka-dot. Of course, polka-dot dresses/tops/skirts/tights come in different shapes and sizes, so.. finding something really special is not easy.

And to make this unequivocally clear.. this gorgeous red polka-dot dress is special, at least.. I think so! It's a dress by the brand Sissy-Boy and yes.. that is the actual brand name.. no joke! :P

The dress is bit more expensive than what I would normally spend on summer dress like this, but it is just such a perfect fit.. it feels wonderful while wearing... it does wonders in creating some curves for my body. So yeah, I decided to keep it.

We're in the colder months now, but as soon as the warmer temperatures arrive in Spring '15, I'll be wearing this again and often! :)

These pictures were taken during the same weekend at the summer cottage when I was wearing that LNQSBD. Well.. I say summer, but there was plenty of rain falling down on me trying to ruin my euphoric feeling about this dress! :-P

However, not even a tsunami could not stop me from going outside and having my pictures and a small video taken.!

I think this video really shows how nicely that dress flows and moves.. and I think the red Steve Madden heels are perfect with this dress! So.. enjoy this video!

The little not quite so black dress


There will come a day when I will grab all my little black dresses and make one huge photo and video shoot lining up all my little preciouses! But today is not that day! :)

Natassia Crystal natcrys, little black dress, outside posing

This little dress is black.. but some white lines managed to sneak themselves onto the fabric. So, I would dub this... *drumroll* .. the little not quite so black dress: the LNQSBD!!

The LNQSBD. Somehow though, I don't think this abbreviation will last. :-P 

Natassia Crystal natcrys, little black dress, near the cottage

These photos were taken during a weekend at a summer cottage for rest and relaxation. The weather wasn't that great, but it was still quite nice for some outside pictures. (that is.. when the sun was shining)

I also did a shoot with a very pretty cute red polka-dot dress and a short purple dress/top thingie. Still editing the stuff.. hope to have finished that at the end of this week still.

Sadly enough, no video material of this LNQSBD, since the sun started setting and it was getting freaking cold!

I just wanted to go inside and take a warm bath! I do have some clips of the other stuff.. and just like the pictures.. and I'm still in the process of editing them, so just a little more patience. ;-)
