I've looked through my wardrobe and apart from a new pair of red jeans, everything is very 2010-2011, mostly white shirts and two pairs of Burda khakis (one greenish, one mustardey, with light sweaters to match.)
Too many safari jackets to admit to. But I guess the lions are safe this year.
Then there's the "Deauville-feel" stuff— a Burda polka-dot ruffled blouse, navy jeans, Burda "flamenco" navy skirt and lots of blue and grey cardigans for the mountain evening cool.
So which direction to head in 2012? Am I sticking with the jungle or Colette? Venturing into bold colour block territory or heading toward pastels?
I'm thinking that the bold colour thing isn't for me unless it's a strong blue. I'll do a blocked dress if I can find the right (not neon) color combo:
and I need a few simple pairs of white/beige pants. Thanks, Burda April. I'm hoping I can still fit into those white jeans I sewed two years back, so no-waistband sewing is my reward this year,
and as warned, I'm hot for a knock-off of the Philip Lim shirt previously posted in two layers of the same pastel tone. I think I'm heading for some Thai silk/home-dyeing adventures there!
But don't you also love the Ferretti designer dress Burda offers for April? Hmmm. A little silk chiffon and more satin from Thai silks into the basket?
