Another fashion Friday on my blog. No, it's not a series of posts; I simply seem to be in the mood for fashion on Fridays. As much as I enjoy the beautiful autumn colours I suddenly found myself in the mood for something cooler. Can it be that this spring girl is ready to embrace winter? Who knew?!!
I think photographer Chris Nicholls (top photos) is rocking the December issue of Flare (see the two links for more photos and details of two editorials). How gorgeous is that red Valentino dress on Natalia Vodianova? Did the Chanel boots catch your attention? They're from one of my favourite Haute Couture Collection, autumn/winter 2010. Karl Lagerfeld stole my heart with that one – not for the first time.
Today is a public holiday in Belgium, Armistice Day, and it happens to be the 11/11/11. In some countries it's called Remembrance Day. Want a little history lesson? The 11th November marks the end of the First World War in 1918. This is the day when we remember those who fell on both sides in the Great War (1914-1918), as it's often referred to. A peace agreement was reached between the Allies and Germany, and on this day in 1918, at eleven o'clock in the morning, the armistice took effect ('eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month').
Have a fabulous and peaceful Friday!
