the girl with the golden top

I have to admit, the girl with the glitter dragonfly dress is not alone. I, too, own since fairly recently something sparkly.

I kept admiring the giant flowers by Susalabim (my new favourite designer in case you haven’t noticed) featuring dark grey and yellow flowers on a grey background. When I saw it on a shopping trip, I took a bit and only realised at home that the yellow was actually gold. I guess, I deserve a little bit of gold, so never mind.

The fabric is a super soft modal and together with the giant flowers it would be ideal for a dress. But for someone who never wears dresses I do have too many already so I made a Usedom by Schnittreif. The loose fit and the bat wings make it just perfect to accommodate my wobbly tummy without looking pregnant.

I love it, it ticks a lot of boxes, quick to sew, supersoft material, comfortable to wear, unusual print, somehow neutral colours (in comparison with the rest of my wardrobe) and most importantly, apple puree seems to be blending in.

And in case you are wondering about the quality of the pictures – they are meant to look like this. This is called artistic. Honestly. It wasn’t easy to make them look like this.

Over to RUMS now, to see if other are better photographers.
