Today is marked in my calendar as "Day off", since it's Armistice Day. Today we mark the armistice signed between the Allies of World War I and Germany at Compiègne, France, for the cessation of hostilities on the Western Front of World War I, which took effect at eleven o'clock in the morning—the "eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month" of 1918. (thanks, Wikipedia!)
Over here, it's a State Holiday, and the offices are closed. So, this post comes not only with lots of Burda sunshine, but also with my smile.
Here's what was new in August 1958:
The popular thing was to easily switch from
serious to summer(y) look
The ideal suits.
I say it just might be so.
I can never say "no" to the red umbrella
Shirt dresses are back on,
but mind this: there should be some "pop up" detail,
like the leopard waist.
Both so delicate and classy
(spot the three buttons in the bottom part of the blue dress - lovely)
These are divine!
Can you imagine summer while wearing this?
Oh, it would be so wonderful.
Striped dress sings of summer;
the deep dark blue ensemble is such a statement suit;
I'd wear it in no time.. and get promoted? :)
Here's something I like, but not wear:
I had a misfortune of owning one such dress
and it gave up on me - stretched at the bottom and looked sagged and sad.
Great, bright, colors.
Something I absolutely support.
Preparing for school
with an amazing style.
Look at this red dress. She has everything a gal needs and wants:
the shape, the style, the cut, the pattern...
Knitting for the young ones?
Here's some inspiration.
...and a detergent
(honestly, having a quality washing detergent is important)
"Ah!" for the petticoat
Sun is shining bright, and we're finding ourselves in the strangest of the situations these past few days: after the regular "autumn" atmosphere, the foggy mornings and rainy days.. we're having what I can best describe as "second spring". The temperatures are abnormally high (technically, we don't mind not being cold) and we're worrying plants might get "confused", start blooming and that the sudden return of chill will hurt them.
The life in a small town is like that: no matter the season, we're looking at the sky and judging just what it's thinking and what are it's plans for us. Hopefully, sky will smile back. :)
Have a great day.
And: happy Armistice Day!
