I'm running a bit late today, my dear friends.. it's a merry-go-round over here. We're preparing for two festivals; one in small village in two days (more like a small town-fair); and the other one is in my town (much like you've seen before). Fun, candies, concerts, guests, new dresses - all that fanfare!
On the other hand, there's a huge chunk of work to do - and we all know what's that called. It's called the "after holidays" pile of paperwork (also known as "the welcoming party") :)
While I party down with my papers
you guise take a look at some pages from "Burda" magazine, OK?
Suwa has the cutest illustrations.
Seeing this (and all other gals) wearing corsets
makes me consider it...
It's all about being "natural, romantic..."
and wearing polka-dots.
Straight from Paris: puffed-up dress and a great hat.
Latest ideas coming from Paris
feature much more color that what a "regular" 1950s lady
would be used to.. so, we're entering a new era.
Oh, my.. cleavage! :)
New designs in shoes.
What a lovely bride!
(the groom looks posh, as well)
Flowers. Dots. Bold prints.
...not that the dresses above would be
a day-to-day kind of outfits, right?
Enters Italian romanticism.
I still don't know what to think about this hat
I must like it - surely.. it would make my head
look like a blooming flower. :)
Speaking of flowers.. here are some
It's like a flower shop!
You don't pick out a dress, you pick out a flower bouquet! :)
Dreaded wash-days are long gone
nowadays, ladies have much needed help
(a greatest gift Men gave us - washing machine!)
Nothing remains plain when you introduce
accessions into your life.
Bag-obsessed, much? :)
I wish you a joyful Wednesday.
