Today is D day for me (for all of you who missed out: my dress is finnaly done, and I'm wearing it right now as I write these words). I have to say, I was a tiny bit nervous last night, as I gave it the last ironing before I went to bed. Be patient for one more day - I promise to publish the story tomorrow.
Until then - it's BURDA Wednesday. We're heading back to September 1951.
This coat is percisely the one I'm looking for this winter.
Here I am - My name is Ilsa and I want to be your best friend
I'd love to have a glamouros friend like her.
These suits are perfect for work.
Cat and suit for every taste.
For sociable hours.
Now, these would be perfect IF I had a company to attend te social gathering with.
Adorable ensemble for the Autumn... and winter
All these, by my standard, are Work Appropriate.
This is what I love about these magazines - they make sure your wallet does not suffer
This is ONE dress in THREE ways.
"What we need daily"
It all about combinig a simple dress material with a statement accessoires.
All these dresses are simple-cut, but their material makes them "pop".
See how, by just making the cuffs and the collar in different pattern, makes a huge impact?
Meaning - there's a generosity in Burda.. since it's Women's magazine,
yet it dedicates a page to the gents
(by all means, they could dedicate MORE than a page - I wouldn't mind)
We are introduced to the variations in texture.
The blue dress with the romboid details - what a way to make a change in style
from plain to amazing.
I'm not a fan of color blue, however this dress attracted me.
NOW, this is precisely what I'll be delighted to wear in the office
(and to use the typewriter, as well, would be a nice change)
Wouldn't it be nice to see MORE women wearing somethign like these.. rather than a "penguin" suit
They are sleek, elegant, they show our curves, but don't advertise sexism.
These are the models I'd prefer to see on Office Ladies.
("penguin suit" is the term I use to describe all the results that you get when you go online, type "office attire" of "interview clothes" and hit "enter". All those dull shades of gray, or the morbid, badly cut black pant suits horrfy me. They turn a woman into a "men clone").
Kids at their best.
All those who had a rocking-horse, raise your hands.
(mine is up in the air)
These house dresses will make even the winter days more injoyable.
I honestly believe we had better underwear in the past.
I don't know about the rest of the world, but I remember having comfortable undies back when I was a kid.
Ursula and Monika show us their new knitted dresses
If you have a boy in the house, you might want to make him one of these sweaters
My brother had something like this (grandma's gift) and he looked so adorable
(is it just me, or the fella on upper right picture looks amazingly like
Josh Charles - playing Will Gardner in "the Good Wife"?!)
Perfect way to give a little twist to your outfit - combining subtle upper part
with the rectangular and patterned lower one.
It your upper left corner are the advices to the young wife.
They, as usuall, end it with "lovingly pepared" meal.
I hope you enjoyed this. my friends.
