Inspired by Edwardian era. Everybody everywear - maxi

Everybody Everywearissa teemana tänään pitkät mekot ja hameet.
Tämä haaste on yllättävän vaikea, koska en ole
mikään maxien suuri fani (paitsi kesällä), ja etenkin kun halusin pitää tyylini
vintagevaikutteisena. No, pitkän mietinnän jälkeen mieleeni juolahti
edwardiaanisen ajan ihanuus ja muistinkin, että minulla on yksi musta maxi hame,
ja musta pitsikauluspaita, joka sopii kaavailemaani asuun kuin nakutettu.
Tietysti asuni on mustanpuhuva kuin mikäkin leski, mutta onko sillä niin väliä.
Musta on mielestäni kauniilla tavalla mystinen väri.
Hauska nähdä, miten peruskirpparivaatteista saa loihdittua
asun, joka on saanut inspiraationsa sadan vuoden takaa..

(Translation: Todays theme, on Everybody Everywear, are maxi dresses and
skirts. This was quite difficult challenge, because I am not a huge fan of
maxi skirts (except on summerdays), and I wanted to keep my style inspired by the past.
Well, after few days thinking I remembered how awesome Edwardian era is again,
and that I have one black maxi skirt and black lace blouse, which suits really
well with the outfit I was planning. Well this outfit is very darky, feeling like a widow right now,
but it doesn't matter. In my opinion, black is, in a beautiful way, very mystical colour.
It is fun to see, that it's possible to create an outfit - from ordinary flea market -shoppings -
which has got its inspiration from hundred years ago..)
