    This looks beautiful on you and is fitted so well. I hope you had a fab time in Paris because you sure have the dress!

    Again some parts of this really work for me some do not. I love an animal print actually but the extra bits of pink and blue fabric not so much.

    This is half and half for me as some of the dresses are really pretty while the others are sacks. The culottes trendy or not (where I come from their time has already passed) are horrible.

    One of the tricks for pressing linen (it’s the same for silk) is to put in a plastic bag in the freezer for a half hour or so before pressing. It gives a good sharp result particularly if you have …

    The problem with this as you observe is that without shoulders and a bust this style will fall off you. And the issue with a bust is that this look is not flattering as it makes your bust look bigg…

    See I don’t mind a ruffle because I think it is less about age and more about body shape and where the ruffles are placed. I like some of these but more importantly I think the styling is much impr…

    I like the blue dress, the others don’t appeal to me; that aside the pink satin blush looks like it needs a good press, and I am not sure about all that shiny. Just saying.

    I like this; while the pieces are conservative they could be made to work with good fabric choices and styling. I am not a fan of yellow but I am fan of a pared down look and this has good bones.

    I like the last dress – I don’t love the grey but I do think the style would work well for a variety of body types.

    I like the overall mood of this collection and the trench is very good. I however do not like all the advertisements – horrible.

    I bought this pattern bundle and while I didn’t love everything in it there are some very good pieces at least from my perspective. I have the suit half assembled as we are going into winter and I …

    While it is pretty clear that the whole of Burda loves boxy including you I wonder if you have noticed that customer’s don’t always like it? This collection looks so much better than most posted b…

    The wrap dress looks good and I like the colours used in this post but as for the rest of it I don’t really like the shapes and I think that an elastic waistband is never flattering no matter your …

    Oh dear not again with the Mumu, really do you think a plus size woman wants to wear any of these designs? I have seen Burda do so much better than this in the past. Even the fabric choices can’t s…
