Finally they arrived!! My brand new labels. I’m really happy how they’ve come out. The light yellow on white is exactly the look that I wanted. Long awaited, ladies – I know. Now you finally will get the labels sewn into your pieces. I’ll all call you soon 😉
Once upon a time… about 5 years ago this cute dress was a long heavy wedding dress.
Sabine, who kept it and even brought it with her to Tokyo, wanted to change it for a long time.
Now the situation was perfect: Her sister got married and she needed a dress! Having two little boys, who are wild, she didn’t wanted to spend a huge amount on a new gown, so she asked me to change her wedding dress for her. Of course, it couldn’t stay white!! 100% polyester made it at first difficult to think about a colouring it, so we considered different fabric on top of the original material. But luckily there is now a fabric colour exclusive for polyesters! So I shortened it, adjusted the zipper at the back and coloured the dress. Look how nice this outcome is! The pearls aren’t the original ones, she brought me this necklace and I used it to decorate the front. A perfect match to style up this cute outfit.
The Art of Dressing is something that many want to understand. One lady is definitely a master of it! Born in 1950, Tziporah is a New York based style icon.
She never leaves the house unless she is fully dressed. And by fully dressed, she means a multi-piece, multi-layered outfit with matching hat, scarf, shoes, earrings, purse, gloves, glasses and other accessories that may take her years to put together.
I went to her Seminar yesterday, presented by Mary Fidler and it was a feast for the eyes. The arrangements of colour, fabrics, her sense of matching the craziest pieces that she found in hidden places is amazing.
If I will copy her style ?? Maybe not… She said at one point: “It took me seven years to put together one outfit, because I couldn’t find the right earrings for it. I wouldn’t wear it until I found the earrings.” I guess, if I would copy that style, I’d end up to walk to our kindergarten in pyjamas… But I definitely got inspired by her and am willing to be more experimental again.
There’s too much boredom in my closet since I have kids. And this was never the case while being a fashion student. I really want to style up again. Follow me mums!!!
