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 Magnolias
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 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?
Shop the Steel Magnolias look!
Would really appreciate it if you would share my photos on Pinterest.
And now let’s see what my other fashion friends have come up with!
