Office Girl ... Neon Roses

this is what i wore to an office meeting last week ... cardi: primark // top: probably h&m // late 50s cotton skirt: made in berlin store // belt: mango // pointy shoes: primark // braclets: flea markets // 60s bag: flea market ...

this skirt caught my eye a long time ago hanging in the shop, but it needed some fixing and for that 30€ was far, far too much ... i also felt a little unsure about the almost neon green coloured roses  ... but a couple of weeks ago i finally found it hanging in the sale section. i got it for 12€ and my talented tailor fixed it for another 2€ ... crazy!
i can't wait to wear it with light colours next summer ... a long wait, i know. but i always wait for summer.

Vintage Shopping In Berlin // Part I

hey, dear friends out there ... in the past months i was asked by several people to do a little vintage shopping guide about berlin. today i start with the first two shops ...



all pictures from their facebook

Veist Kleidergeschichten is one of my favourite vintage shops here in berlin, neukoelln. veist is not just about midcentury fashion, you might find there mostly, what i call 'in fashion' vintage (boheme, 80s, 90s, designer pieces, ...) and just a little mid century pieces once in a while ... every single piece is hand picked by the wonderful and awsome ladies working there. they really have a special eye for style and design, wonderful fabrics like silk and cashmere ... some of the clothes are telling their little story from the past on the prize tag. don't we all want to know where our vintage clothes come from?
veist is a consignement shop ... and i love to bring clothes there to sell. so maybe you will find one of your favourite pieces out of my collection there ...
all in all it's always a big fun to pop by this shop, the ladies of veist are smart, fun and ever so lovely - even if they are busy as hell!

 the little fake fur jacket from the 50s is the first piece i ever purchased at veist, the red felt hat is the latest - but won't be the last for sure.

those pants belong to one of my best vintage buys ever: my highly beloved vintage sailor suit made from silk and crepe. from whatever era but found at veist! 
Schwarze Truhe

pictures from their facebook
some of you might know schwarze truhe as an online shop from ebay ... i have to be true, i was never that much into the pieces they have online but i really like to recommend the shop as a shop. in 2012 schwarze truhe was still in their old location, a tiny place in berlin alt-treptow filled with treasures from all around the midcentury. it was so full, that it was hard to go through the racks ... but i found my first 40s dress back then (see below). this year they moved a house to the right, into a bigger and brighter place. now you have enough space to go through the 40s and 50s rail, the pre 40s rail, the 60s and 70s section  - or to get your hands on one of the retro dresses from lindy bop  ...

floral 40s dress found in 2012 at schwarze truhe ...

 found this 50s-60s number this summer at schwarze truhe. big love - even if i look a little skepitcal in this picture!

stay tuned ... for part II  - and more shops

Pumpkin Girl

this is what i wore to work, when there was no one then me ... 50s-60s dress: ebay // belt: h&m // shoes: primark // 50s wicker purse: flea market // bracelets: flea markets ...

this dress drives me crazy! it has almost the best fit and cut for my figure, it fits almost perfectly - but i barely ever wear it. why?! bright orange. the brightest oraaaaaaange ever! OOOOOOORRAAAAANGEEEE!i said this before: it has the same colour like german garbageman wear ... do i love it or hate it ?

... 50s cotton dress: lucky dry goods, seattle // shoes: clarks // 50s hat: thrifted in the usa // 50s necklace: thrifted in the usa // 60s ear clips: flea market // vintage bracelet: flea market // 60s crochet bag: ebay ... (all pictures taken by the man)

this is what i wore to dear friends' wedding past saturday ... i ended up wearing some of my fav-fav-fav- favourite pieces ever ... dress, hat, necklace, shoes and ear clips i could love and wear to tiny little pieces ...but especially the dress i try to safe for more special occanssions. what could be better as a wedding!
to set my hair i used soft rollers the first time ever and i actually liked the result. they are pretty ok to sleep on ...
the pictures are taken still at my mum's house and sourrounding ... sadly there are almost no pictures of the actual wedding and i don't have a picture of the married couple by now ... i was so busy with swooning over the beautiful bride and chatting with old friends, that i totally forgot to take photos ...
