Steel Magnolias-Match Made in Seven

steel magnolias

Now Debbie choose this months theme, Steel Magnolias, and believe me, I cracked my brains out for this one! I would like to introduce our new member Eva to you! She is a perfect addition to our group, a very creative woman. Please pay her a visit and see what she creates! Of course you need to visit my other fashion friends too and see how they played with this theme. All the links are at the bottom of the post!

Welcome to the monthly edition of  Match made in Seven! We are a international group of fashion bloggers who meet once a month. One of us chooses a theme in turn, and that can be anything. A book, music, a color, a movie. And then we style an outfit based on that theme. It’s fun to collaborate with other fashion bloggers!

How I struggled with Steel MagnoliasMatch Made in Seven

Pff, I really did. First I thought, I will wear a outfit from one of the characters in the movie. But they seem kind of boring, the outfits that is, not the characters. By the way, I did not ever see the movie Steel Magnolias! Then I thought, I could do a post with photos of my girlfriends. Because it’s a movie about friendship. But then again, they don’t like it when I feature them on my blog. At least a few of them don’t like that. So what’s left then. It is fun though, to think so hard of how you are going to do a theme! But I am sorry, I didn’t come up with anything original!

How I wear Steel Magnoliasthe theme is Steel Magnolias

Of course I couldn’t make any photos of our magnolia as they already bloomed out. So that also didn’t work! Hey thanks Debbie, lol! But this dress has magnolias on it! Yeah. So that will have to do. It’s a pre loved dress with lovely pink white flowers. On a black background, that has my preference. The dress is a bit short for my liking, I have to remind myself that I should not wear that length anymore. But I keep forgetting it. There is a bit of the color of the shoes in the dress. And I am wearing green and pink bracelets and pink tassel earrings.

Behind me is a magnolia tree and in our front garden we have a purple one. But they only shine so short. After a week all the flowers are already gone. Such a pity. Now I am very curious what my friends have come up with, aren’t you? Have you ever seen the movie Steel Magnolias?

    Well, you really lucked out with a dress with magnolias on it! That is a REALLY literal interpretation of the theme!

    I love the dress with the tiny denim jacket over top!

    Wearing that magnolia print dress was the perfect solution! Admittedly, it would have been a theme I would have struggled with as well. Especially as I don’t have a magnolia print dress 🙂 Those shoes are really amazing, and I don’t think the dress is too short on you. xxx

      You don’t think so? I have the feeling I should only wear over the knee skirts and dresses! Thanks Ann!

    That’s a tricky theme! I wouldn’t know what to wear – good thing you had a magnolia print in your closet, Nancy! It looks awesome. Those are some cool booties! Love that kitten heel.

    I would be stumped too – I haven’t seen the movie either. But your magnolia dress is really pretty! Very cute outfit! Oh and I think that hem length looks fine.

    Love this floral dress on you! Perfect for the theme! Those booties are sweet too, picks up the color in the dress. I also love the lighter denim jacket. I have 2 darker ones, but not a light one.. maybe some time! You look great!
    thanks for linking!
