Secondly, for those of you not celebrating (or, well, even if you are), you can get excited about the early preview for the January 2014 Burda!
Or, well, ok, maybe excited might be too strong a word. Some better options might be amused, confused, or bored. January issues tend to be hit or miss for me, and next year's first issue looks like it might be more of a miss, at least based on the photos of the early preview. Now, I don't want to ruin your holiday, but take a look at these:
|What the... How fugly is that? A color blocked fur coat?|
I suppose it is a good way to use all of your leftover fur scraps?
(Though part of me wonders if there is a good coat pattern under all that fur.)
|Tying a piece of fabric around yourself with a ribbon |
won't actually do much to help you stay warm...
|At least this coat/vest looks somewhat wearable compared to the others.|
|I am liking the look of this shirt - |
nice to see something for a dressy non-knit.
|This jacket! Looks amazing! |
I wish it wasn't a white-on-white photo so I could actually see details...
|I am sort of digging the top (even with the asymmetrical hem).|
Might be hoping that the pants are a pattern option as well...
|This turtleneck top would actually be quite useful in winter.|
The skirt... might be more useful next summer.
|Her dress: meh. |
Maybe I just need to see it in sequins and not poofy pink flowers.
His jacket: Sharp.
|Oooh, I like this coat!|
|This dress is nice too!|
(Also, didn't they use that print fabric last September?)
|It was better as a jacket I think.|
|You can be a flower! Or a tree!|
(Random side note - is that where Burda thinks my boobs are?
No wonder I am forever adding to raise the necklines of things.)
|Ok, this mermaid costume is actually sort of great.|
Who else wants to make the sea-shell bustier just because?
Actually, I could see it being used as part of a rather unique wedding gown...
|And you can make your children act as supporting cast.|
Or possibly dress them up for a holiday nativity school concert.
|We have a spider man!|
We are definitely dressing them up for a holiday nativity school concert.
I mean, after all, eight is an awful lot of legs.
|Wait - there was no chicken at the birth of Jesus!|
Lobsters and octopi yes. Chickens, no, not so much.
