It's sunny today - so far. We have had some afternoon showers lately, and they made me change my gardening plans; once I come back from work, it starts pouring, and there's a little bit of frustration there, but I hope that today I'll have good weather and be able to continue my plans.
If all fails, I'll curl up in my room and read some articles on our favorite old days, old stars, old houses,
As for the mood, I have a great cure - Burda magazine in all it's December glory. We are looking at the last issue for 1954, and there are some great inspirations to be found.. now, why do I bother you, you can simply browse these lovlies yourself and I'm sure your mood will improve.
Elaborate party dress
Marianne, witout doubt, has marked this year's issues
with her gracious Schlager-models.
If you are looking for something fresh and different...
...these "large collar" dresses are perfect choice.
"The slim models"
These tight-fitting models are perfect to
accentuate your figure.
"Drapes the body and emphasizes elegance"
These pieces are timeles.
This is a "how to camouflage the old"
and make it look fresh and playful.
"Ornamental and warm"
These are the ideas on making your clothes look new
(and, it just might be quite an old and worn one before it)
You see, I have a thing for old things. Or, should I say: I haven't got the heart to throw away what, in my mind, can be salvaged and saved by some remodeling. If I can make it usable - I will. And, the issue is only related to clothing, I can't give up almost anything. And, once I do decide it's a "throw away" time -- it's really became useless.
"All desires seam to be Muson Lavender"
If you are not a dress-person;
you might opt for adoralbe shirt - and you can chose one of these.
"Le rouge baiser" - meaning: red kiss
A classic French makeup brand
(it's amazingly shown over here)
"Father, brother, son or grandfather - all were thought of"
Dress your gents in their best.
This is the first part of this celebrational issue of Burda - and I can tell you one thing: while making this post presentable, it has lifted my spirits enormously. I hope it works for you as well.
