First day of work, after the Easter holiday. Back at the office, the rain has started (again), and the heating season for governmental buildings is over (yeah, there's a "season" for that; and it was officially over, so the offices are a bit colder than we're used to). We have had to opt for using the air conditioner in order to "lift the mood" just a bit. :)
...but, actually, lifting our mood
is best done by some great fashion.
Let's continue our trip to 1959.
Spotting some daring patterns.
Never be afraid to mix and match.
These are "practical" dresses
and it always makes me smile:
back then dresses were such an essential,
a woman could not imagine NOT wearing it.
Great shapes that allow body movement,
large pockets, sturdy waists..
they are indeed - practical.
(and there's no excuse for not wearing a dress)
Lovely, like little dolls.
back, before I started choosing my own clothes (tomboy-style!)
I wore something like this, it was super-important
to have black shiny shoes and white socks (with lace on top)
Absolutely a staple:
collar shitr. better know as a "polo" shirt.
In Serbia, we call them "the crocodile" due to the fact that the most famous of all the brands making polo shirts is "La Costa" - and their logo is indeed-- a crocodile. :)
(nowadays better known as "an evening dress" :)
I suppose. a story.
"My granddad built the Alps"
"Not really. MY granddad killed the Black Sea!"
One of those powders that magically
(over here, I prefer simple baking soda)
"Perwoll" was then, and is now;
still washing our laundry
Raining - still.
Recent research has determined that bad weather actually increases work productivity when compared to days with good weather. Without distractions such daydreaming about playing tennis or going out on the lake to take advantage of the beautiful weather, more work generally gets accomplished.
I suppose, it's good for us, then. :)
...let's be productive (since we can't do much else!)
