It won't take long before spring arrives!February 27, 2013
But there, in a far distance, I can see spring already knocking on the door! We still have to bite the bullet with the chilly and damp (that ruins your hair awefully) though, but I have seen the first crocuses already! It is time for me to start investing in a spring wardrobe. I do have a lovely collection of clothing for spring and summer but those are all 1940s. Nowadays I am leaning more towards the 1930s fashion wise. It somehow appeals more to me than the forties does. Perhaps it's because Ben and I are surrounded by designs, music, furniture and other household stuff from the 1930s. But I am not (not!) abandoning the 1940s.
The 1930 housekeeping magazine stated that it was clever to invest in a knitted plaid sports suit in Sun Colors with fairway green, fairway red, jungle yellow, dessert sun and a dark blue used as accents or combined with white for both sports and evening wear.
