The silouets have changed since we've started looking at Burda magazines. We are now entering an era of sleek lines, less emphasis on the tiny waist and more smooth forms of garments.
Shall we take a look?
Long coats for cold days
Note the diference: the coats have no waist,
they drape the body

cold days of autumn"

OK - not something that would suit me,

Back in the day, putting flowers in your home was an essential thing. It made your house dcor complete. You could not invite people over and not have flowers (unless flowers were what you expected on getting from them). Since I grew up surrounded by old magazines, I got the strong feeling that a house is an empty space without a lovely flower arrangement.
Nowadays, I have friends that had huge problems when they receinved me as a visitor: I'm an old-school kind of gal. So, when I come to your home, I make sure to bring flowers. Problem occured when (not only once) a friend did not own a vase!
How did such an essential thing managed to be forgotten by our generations? Don't we care? The friend took the flowers, and since no vase was in her home, she had to opt for a jar. A jar?! Yes, the thing you put your preserved food in. :)
Gents at their best

Burda folks always had their magazine's page (or more than one)
dedicated to mother & daughter matching clothes.
I'm not ashamed to say: my mom and I had matching red sweaters. Oh, and did I love, love, love those days, when we both wore the same and walked together. I felt so proud, the air felt lighter, and I remember how much I wanted the world to see us, and there were toughts in my mind: "One day I will look like her"..
Have an amazing mid-week!
