29. Playing with Scale

Big flowers, little flowers, naive flowers, folksy flowers... How do you wear your florals, asks Spygirl.

Here's the answer: I don't, usually. But this is flower is so abstract that it is just a graphic blob, making for a clean look. It is also naive, almost childish, which I like, it reminds me of my youth.

From afar the delightful ditsy shirt pattern reads solid. I bought this mainly for fabric, the fit is rather boxy at the moment, hopefully I can work it into something more shapely.


I also wore some stylized roses.


Red and white reads summer to me.

  2. Dein Rock mit dem schönen Blumenprint erinnert mich tatsächlich an meine Kindheit in den 70ern. Ich mag dieses Muster sehr. Rock und Bluse zusammen stehen Dir sehr gut, es schaut richtig fröhlich und sommerlich aus.
    Lieben Gruss von Sabine

    1. Der Rock könnte vom Muster her aus den 70ern stammen. Ich denke fast, daß es neu ist, da der Stoff Lycra hat. Damals waren alle Jerseys Baumwolle und wurden mit der Zeit schlapp.

  5. I think you got the scale just right - really big and fairly small prints. Maybe you could make the blouse into a dress using this skirt?

  6. That's an interesting idea, Val. I have seen dresses that combine woven and jersey, but somehow it never occurred to me to try the same.

  7. This is a pretty way to wear them! Nice colors for you, as well.
    I'm impressed with print mixing ... I manage sometimes, but still don't feel comfortable doing it a lot. The big florals always remind me of Marimekko!
