Memory of Colours and So Much More

Some things never get old, just like this beautiful floral editorial, which was published on Feb 2005 Vogue UK.

It's 5 years old, but 'till today I can't seem to get my eyes off of it's mix of sweet girly colours.

And I do miss those days when I was in love with cardigans. I practically live my days wearing tubes or tank tops with cardigans. And mind you, my cardigans were not just normal cardigans. They were magical, at least for the 18-year-old me.

They were babyblue with daisy-formed silver sequins, knitted pink with wooden buttons, warmest grey with orange dots, wool lilac with flowers embroidery, soft beige with lace, and some other beautiful pieces. Oh, how I wish I could have them back now.

This editorial really brings back the memory. I was once a girly girl. Well, I think today I still have that part of me hidden deep within. I'm still smiling looking at those beautiful flower headpieces (aren't they the sweetest things ever?), the beige cardigan with gold buttons, the beaded grey cardigan. How lovely.

I know that nude and black are the "IT" colour lately. But seriously, a little touch of bright colours never fail to brighten up the day, don't you think?


  1. I was imagining your cardigans based on your descriptions and I can see that they were so pretty and lovely. xoxo

  2. oh man, i'm craving all your old cardigans, they sound amazing & incredibly adorable! lily donaldson is no doubt my favourite model ever, thanks for posting these, they are gorgeous! i'm so glad she's making a comeback (recent W Magazine Korea cover, etc.) i'm loving light and pastel colours at the moment, but a punch of colour is always really wonderful :)

  3. Cute post Olive :)
    Hey, I still think you're a girlie girl.
    Happy Weekend! BTW, have you bought a Ruffles Cheddar & Sour Cream. You have to try it!

  4. Dear .. Leave a comment in my blog with your e-mail address so I can send you some songs that you can use in your wedding. I won't publish the comment :)

  5. Oh my. Those photos are absolutely magnificent. It brings back my childhood as well. :)
    What I would do for that flower head piece.

    I don't your girly side is hidden away. I bet it pops up in your style or how you think when you purchase things.. I just think you've evolved into what your style is today. :)

    And I agree, neutrals and nudes seem to be very in now. But colors are what attracts my eye in my opinion. :)
