Now, as we are all aware, the English Burda Style website is essentially useless in terms of finding out any information about the magazine or patterns offered by the company. So we all turn to alternative sources in alternative languages. I know the home is the German site, and many people favor the Russian site as well. I have also heard people extolling the virtues of the French website, but I will go on a limb and state that the Italian website is the best. Why? Because it is logical and posts things first. Now, I don't actually know Italian, but I did take a little Spanish, which perhaps helps the comfort level. But in any case, over the past three months I have developed a level of commitment with this website and will tout it over the other Burda options.
Now, for the preview!
Perhaps it is me, but Burda seems to be infatuated with the potato sack look this year:
|The boyfriend's punk rock potato sack tee.|
|The potato sack with sleeves.|
|A pink potato sack.|
|Because one pink potato sack isn't enough.|
|Sleeveless potato sack.|
|A potato sack for the plus size ladies.|
|The infamous Burda shirt dress!|
|Love love love the back.|
|The same back, with more details.|
|Madly in love with this dress.|
|The line drawing. Mad crazy love.|
|More dress love.|
|Also as a shirt!|
|I even want to make this! Probably will be a "what were you thinking" but I like it.|
|Ok, maybe right now reading schoolmarm, but you know Burda will use it as a base in one of the future "Best of Burda Styling" pictures. Somehow they will add a belt, vest, or jacket and we will all think, "Wait, why didn't I make this?"|
|Nice, soft, cool for summer.|
|Because my hips aren't big enough already.|
|Pockets so deep you need to hire Indiana Jones to excavate the stuff you will lose in their depths.|
|Good thing you triple line your dresses.|
In any case, I suppose like all good fashion shows we need to have a best and worst pattern award. Feel free to debate, argue, and denounce my choices in the comments.
The winner of the Best of BS Award for May goes to:
|I can't help it, I just loves it so much.|
And the winner of May's BWTF Award goes to:
|Ummm, miss? Your top is falling off.|
There are, of course, other offerings for the month of May, but you just have to go here to check them out. Tune in next month to see the the June offerings. I predict beachy, breezy, summer offerings, more potato sacks, and at least one shirt dress.
