I guess, I haven’t exactely been known for my sophisticated and classic taste when it comes to clothing. Or anything else. So you might wonder why my blog is suddenly featuring a black and white collection.
I guess, this is what you are expecting on this blog:
Back to black and white and a more classy approach. But lets do it in small steps, we don’t want anyone to have a heart attack from sudden and big changes.
I wouldn’t say that I have a favourite colour. Lets not get too philosophical but you always need an opposite to actually appreciate certain features. The non-colours black and white are only classic and elegant because there are people like me who think parrot style is best.
So, looking back at the colours above, the trio of pink-orange-teal seamed to be the perfect combination for quite a while. We found it in the old scarf from 2013/14ish (still wearing it by the way)
and it came almost back in the famous Fashion Course Dress
but in order to get the best possible marks, I went for the more classy shiny black/dark grey instead of pink
Slowly, slowly my hair turned a bit more silver and with the silver matured my taste for colours. I realised that silver or, as others might call it, “grey”, is actually the new black, and so I happened to purchase grey wool for this year’s baby jumper.
But if grey is the new black, what is the new white?
Surely it must be yellow.
I was never really a fan of yellow, but now that it is officially the new white, I have realised that it had already creeped into my fabric cupboard.
One of my favourite examples for the amazingness of
white yellow would be a top that I rather accidentally made a couple of weeks ago.
I meant to make a shirt for a 11 year old girl with leukaemia. But have you ever tried to choose a fabric to please an 11 year old? As I personally have the taste of a 5 year old, this seamed far too difficult… until I came across a fabric with little monsters who reminded me immediately of leukaemia cells. So I thought, if I can not match her taste anyway, I will take the fun route and make a leukaemia shirt. I chose light pink sleeves to make sure it was still girly.
The colours in this picture are rubbish. As the shirt is with its rightful owner already, I took a daylight picture of the fabrics to give you a better idea.
Still a bit pointless, I know. I should have kept the shirt to take a decent picture before handing it over.
Anyway, I found the idea of the leukaemia shirt so great and also the yellow version of the sleeve fabric so amazing that I made a tiny version for the girl’s 1 year old leukaemia buddy with yellow sleeves.
And there it was: my new favourite trilogy, the new black and white! What you all have been waiting for
since reading the title.
Well, with a little bit of teal. Good things always come in threes anyway. Whoever claims anything else on this blog is stupid 🙂
I am so pleased with those two shirts, especially the yellow version. I suppose the look is more suitable for a 1 year old than for an 11 year old but she was too polite to show it 🙂
So, it looks like my love of orange-pink-teal has secretely turned into a more toned down and mature yellow-grey-teal so who knows, I might really be wearing black and white in my next post.
