Inspired by “a Piece of Clothing for (Almost) Every Age”

The Carnival of a garment for (almost) every life runs until October 31, 2016 and I am happy about the many different posts. The contribution by Bärbel has prompted me to show a current outfit with white blouse again. I’ll link this post not at the Carnival, but but it will be on November 3, 2016 – stimulated by Bärbel – a review to give, can be linked with the outfits that are inspired by the Carnival.

It was in the spring and summer 2015 my one-sided and Evergreen and becomes quite to the brand name of a person, just like other black shirts, turtlenecks or waisted skirts did her trademark. I saw Friday the post go white blouses with Fran and can only sign: Yes, white blouses always go!

High class casual chic or just plain boring?

The border between high class casual chic and boring dud is sure and everyone will see it somewhere else. Can you argue probably so long over it, such as through the residential areas north and South of the Elbe or left and right of the Rhine. As it is called at the end of the child, doesn’t matter for me, if I know that I feel comfortable in it. Well as outfit or not – today I am here in white blouse go.
