Good and chilly morning, luckily without rain today (at least that's what the folks from weather forecasting team told us on TV last night) :)
Blazers have definitely lost their waists and
no longer follow the shape of the body,
they now ARE the shape.
With this "tosca" advertisement,
we can see how faces start to change, too
spot the shorter brows..
THIS is IT:
this small image in the color-less page
IT the tell.tale of the shapes for future of fashion!
I guess we'll never stop searching
for a way to get the perfect white
in our underwear
Say "yes" to this blue dress. :)
Collars lost the sharp edges,
and we get bows to tight them up around.
"lines are free"
(we call it "loss of shape")
Sleeves are now shorter:
3/4 or even 7/8 length.;
skirts are straight, under knee
Take a look at the accessorizes:
everything has got a sew-over decoration
needle point was a way to decorate.
"For the fashion of soft lines..."
"...the appropriate material"
These office-savvy ensembles are designed for
the full-busted ladies
..oh, how I envy thy some days... :)
As for these clever and practical models:
they are made elegant
by simple adding some details.
We'll stop here, with this art-work
Speaking of clothes.
Here's something interesting:
Few days back, Mim from Crinoline Robot blog has discussed about her outfits, and how much of the actual daily-wear do we show around web (you can read about it HERE). Some things we wear never get shown, and some things get worn JUST to be shown.. so that made me thinking (yet again) about dressing up for show VS just wearing clothes.
As you have noticed; since I braved-up and started sharing photos of myself, I wear my vintage and/or used clothes every day, to the office, in the house.. and I consider it "my clothes". That is what my wardrobe consists of; as minimal as it may be - every item hangs in the wardrobe and gets frequently used. I do not own (nor I can afford to) any "show-off" clothes. Even if I did, my life runs in a way that does not allow me to dress up for a photo-shoot.
By no means does this suppose to tell you that I do not enjoy ladies wonderful gowns, and suits.. and poses they make, and the time & effort they give into every single outfit posts.. they make my day, they inspire me.. and I'd change nothing. :)
As for me,
I have a "new" old dress:
After consulting other fellow vintage clothes gals
I have realized it's called
"an apron style dress"
I have found this dress while picking through a sack of freshly brought used clothes in our local shop; it's one of those "everything you pick-out is 10 cents each"... whatever you find: from socks, over skirts, pajamas, up to shawls and even belts.
Have you ever picked-out from a sack?
If you have: anything fun you've found?
Have a great mid-week.
