The Leopard And The Toad

What I wore last Friday for my first stroll out after a week in bed with fever ... early 50s blazer: flea market // top: h&m // 40s-50s skirt: Made in Berlin Shop // vintage belt: came with a skirt // 90s boots: a vintage shop in Berlin-Kreuzberg // 50s-60s leapard faux fur purse: Mankii Vintage // 50s hat: thrifted // birds family sweater safer pin: flea market

Some of you might know, that I like to call this skirt 'the toad'. I can't help it, when I look at this skirt I have to think of the skin of a slimy huge toad.  ...and what was I thinking to pair my leopard purse with the toad?! Strange mix but it works ...

Ms Falcon's Lost December On Instagram

Somehow I had some troubel with my mobile and suddenly Instagram stopped saving my pictures on my android - so I wasn't able to get my hands on some of my Instagram pics and transfer them to the computer ... New SD card and it works again. So there are just a few -late- pictures from December ... for those who don't have IG.

Inspiration From The Past // Winter 1954

I haven't done this for a while, so I'm happy to share some beautiful wintery fashion inspirations from a German sewing magazine from the mid 1950s. The casual plaid outfits and the looks with leopard spotted details are my favourites - outfits I would totally take for a spin. The wiggle costume made from lace with a little fur trim is absolutly stellar, nothing I would leave the house with, but absolutely adorable!!!
Do you spot any favourites here?

Vintage Experiences ... Steaming Might Help

What I wore to work a couple of days ago ... 50s wool dress: flea market, from a friend // belt: thrifted // modern vintage boots: eBay // 50s purse: flea market // 50s hat: Made In Berlin, Vintage Store // 50s-60s novelty brooch: eBay // vintage gloves: thrifted ...

Those who follow me on Instagram might know how excited I was, when I snatched up this dress from a vintage loving friend selling it on Mauerpark Flea Market a few months ago. After I wore it the first time, I decided to give it a full bath - often I give vintage dresses just a little underarm wash, to safe the fabric. My friend told me, that I could give it a cold handwash. This is what I did, I soaked it for a short while in the ice cold bathtub. When I took it out, I felt an even colder shock running through my veins ... the dress had turned into a short minidress/top thingy. I was about crying, I really thought it was ruined. 
As I learned from rayon dresses, I decided a few days later to steam it. It took me three long steaming sessions - but the dress is fully back! It's as long as I got it (which is already short for a 50s dress)  and I'm quite relieved and happy.
If something happens to one of your pieces, remember not to steam it as long as it's still wet, the garment has to be dry to grow back into it's former shape.
