Spring is in my heart: Tribal Prints By Anika

 Hi Sweethearts!

It may be snowy and cold outside, but Spring is in my heart, and now I want to enjoy my imaginary Spring through fashion! We have already established that I am in denial about where I live, so this seems like the next logical step don`t you think? I agree.

Welcome to my new series: Spring is in my heart! Every week I will sew a dress that inspired by my favourite trends for Spring.

This week tribal prints are in my heart. Bold prints everywhere, best worn with a confident this-is-a-LOT-of-print-but-I-can-DO-this-if-I-take-a-deep-breath-and-let-it-rip-attitude.

L.A.M.B. Missoni. Etro.Missoni. (http://www.modamee.com)

For my take on tribal prints I went for a muted palette, with rusts, dusty blues and mint greens. I sewed the dress from one of my fave scarves by H&M, and added a belt that I cut from a miniskirt by H&M.

This is

 

 

 

My challenge last week was:

My challenge for next week:

 

Tell me, can you feel Spring yet?

 

I would love to connect with you!

That pattern is so perfect and gorgeous, and those colors go along so well! I am so impressed that you made that from a scarf! I would have never even thought of that!

if there is an award to be given for creativity then gosh darn it, it has your name written all over it! How in the world are you able to create this amazing dress out of a scarf? How I wish I were half this resourceful! And your ring! It’s calling out my name! Lovely! I’m so glad spring is in your heart. I say enough with the cold weather, and the snow, and the freezing temperatures. Give me sunshine, the sound of birds singing, flowers blooming and the birth of baby farm animals! By the way, I got your beautiful comment and it would be an honor to be featured in your beautiful blog. Let me know what I have to do!

This is such a gorgeous creation and a great take on tribal prints. You have a great knack for style and the fact that you made this dress all by yourself makes this outfit even more amazing.

Ahh it feels so good to be back on your blog, receiving the positive energy from half-way across the world (okay maybe not quite half-way)!! These tribal prints are so fabulous, and you as always are wearing them with so much fierceness. Can’t wait to see how you integrate the Gucci color blocking, modern Asian influence in your next challenge.
