A few years ago there was this ad series (GAP?) where words lwere used for a double meaning, RED being the operative word because of some charity aspect.
Well, I have been charitable towards myself. Last weekend was the big annual Modepalast weekend in Vienna. Plenty of emerging and established small label designers from (Eastern) Central Europe.
If you draw an imaginary line from southern Baltic to the Adriatic Sea you have Berlin, Prague, Vienna, Budapest and Beograd all lined up. These cities have plenty of designers with cool goodies and fresh points of view.
I got myself this fun little belt by a Prague designer. Red silk bows just did the trick for me, plus the fact the belt end hangs down in a way that lets any Medieval girl's heart beat faster (yes I am funny like that), and the fact that the bows can be moved around.
I like wearing one bow in the back and one in the front.
The skirt is a recent make. I used the fabulous Marcy Tilton dress/tunic pattern V8876, but only from waist down. It was a bit tricky, but I liked the shape so I plowed ahead. (It was a refashion, too, but more of that another time.) I really like how it turned out, and will definitely use it again for fall weight fabrics.
