Open your wardrobe and tell me the three most common colors that you see. Mine will have to be black, blue, and green. As I compiled my favorite looks from 2012 I realised my preference for these colors, and this motivates me to rethink my wardrobe choices for this year. Luckily, my subconscious realised this earlier - when I ordered some fabrics a few weeks ago I actually picked brighter colors that will enrich my color palette. So hopefully I will be making some great colorful pieces in the upcoming months.

I realised that again, I’ve started the year with blue and green. But you must admit that this late 30s/early 40s mint green dress is rather fabulous. I wore it previously to the Sydney Opera House to watch Rufus Wainwright, but I thought it was time to wear it again with my new 60s velvet cape. After all, I can’t resist the lace details on the front. Still one of my favorite vintage dresses.
