Kill Your Lover - Part One





please, don't use these photos without permission
in november this year i was a part of a film noir photo project meant as a tribute to the wonderful early lauren bacall ... i felt honoured to have the chance to slip into this film noir character and to be able to work with these two adorable and talented ladies ...

Winterboots Ruin Everything ...



this is what i wore this morning to another wintery visit to a flea market ... modern coat: from a traditional turkish fashion store // vintage muff-bag: flea market or ebay // cardi: primark // top h&m // 50s kitten skirt: flea market // super warm late 70s winter boots: flea market // beret: probably from a flea market ...

this morning i decided to take my warm, warm, warm 70s wedge boots out for a stroll over a couple of wintery outdoor flea markets. since a sneaking cold is trying to overtake my body, i felt like getting dressed as warm as possible ... these boots aren't beauties by far and i knew that before i put them on  today ... but i was really shocked when i saw the pictures on the computer later. ok, they still go quite ok with the coat  ... aaaah, but they totally ruin my casual stripy-kitty-cozy-almost-sick-look (which isn't too exciting anyhow)!!!!
funny, that i found a nie pair of warm lined 40s-50s lace up booties on the flea market today ... but if the bitter berlin cold comes to town i will go back to these super warm 70s boots again. i prefer to look silly than to freeze.

what kind of footwear do you wear with your vintage looks, when it's bitter cold outside?!

Strawberry Cream Cake



this is what i wore to the cold flea market past sunday ... cardi: h&m // 50s woolen dress: ebay // vintage snake skin belt: thrifted // vintage boots: ebay // 60s bag: flea market // hat: h&m via flea market // 50s-60s gloves: flea market ...

this outfit reminds me on a choclate cake with strawberry cream ... it's always good to think about cake .... i'm very busy with just 'life' right now ... so there is not much time left to be be around in blogland  ... i hope, you don't mind.

for those who asked ... there will be post about the hairdressers magazines i bought on the last flea market ... don't expect too much! they are not as good as they look at the first sight.

Getrödelt, Gefunden, Gefreut ... Taschensonntag



hallo ihr lieben freunde von getrödelt, gefunden, gefreut ... eigentlich dachte ich, diesen monat muss ich passen, denn vor lauter trauertagen im schönen nieselig grauen november fielen alle flohmarkte flach. ... doch gestern, am letzten tag des monats haben wir uns in aller frühe auf einem tiefgaragen-flohmarkt im berliner umland die nasen rot gefrohren ... aber mit erfolg! kennt ihr das, wenn ihr auf dem flohmarkt fast ausschließlich dinge aus einer richtung findet? also,  ... z. B. habe ich schmuck-, dekoartikel- oder halt mal taschen-sonntage. heute war offensichtlich taschen-tag ... die 60er-70er jahre tooled leather bag aus mexico und die beiden kunststoff-korbtäschchen habe ich von einer netten dame (zusammen 7€). die beiden korbtaschen sind ziemlich sicher nur sehr nette reproduktionen und nicht wirklich allzu vintage - aber dafür sehr, sehr hübsch. das klapp-körbchen aus den 40er-50er jahren war ein ganzgroßartiger fund, denn irgendwann im sommer hatte ich so eines auf irgendeinem tollen blog gesehen und wollte dann auch eines: ich alter nachmacher ... naja, nun hab ich meine eigenens. weiter gab es einen 50er hut zu finden, drei frühe 60er jahre hutnadeln in rosen form, zwei 50er jahre frisuren magazine und eine midcentury perlmut brosche .... ich bin mit der ausbeute des gestrigen ausflugs in die kälte eigentlich recht zufrieden ...

wenn ihr wissen möchtet, was die anderen trödlerettes und trödler so gefunden haben klickt euch rüber zu beswingtes allerlei und getrödelt, gefunden, gefreut

english recap: hey, dear friends ... this is what i found on yesterday's flea market ... this time: mostly bags but also a 50s hat, a hairdressers magazine, rose hat pins and a lovely mid century brooch ... the 40s to 50s fold baset is one of my favourite finds today, i was searching for one the whole summer ...
don't worry, next post i will be back in full english again!

You Can't Have It All




... this is what i wore two days in a row ... busy bee i am right now ... vintage cardi: thrifted in the usa // 50s cotton skirt: made in berlin store // belt: primark // 80-90s boots: flea market // vintage 'puss in boots brooch: ebay // 50s wicker purse: flea market // 50s hat: ebay ...

sorry, for my unplanned absence last week but the past days were pretty exciting and filled with decisions, hopes and new things .... first thing: we found a new bigger flat which costs almost the same rent as the place we are living in now! the best thing about the new flat is, that dear friends of ours are living in the same building! see me dancing on the table! what's a little sad about moving ... we will move to a total different part of berlin. for sure i will miss to have my favourite vintage shop just around the corner, i have to find good tailor and i won't be close to flowmarkt at maybachufer anymore ... you can't have it all ...

the other new thing in my life are my new glasses! as you might remeber, i was playing around with original 50s frames and i was actually totally into bringing one of them to the optician ... but in the end, i felt not happy with my favourite true vintage frame. somehow it was eating my eyebrows and it was a tinybit too small for my face ... when my husband went last week to a optician shop i stepped over a special offer. Three frames/glasses fro one prize!!! and they had some quite 50s inspired frames in the shop ... so i ended up with this pair and two other ones i will pick up from the store soon. ha, and i can still wear my old frames, my vision didn't changed!

... and my work contract got extended, which is good and bad ... actually i was waiting for some changes that didn't happened. whatever i will be able to pay my rent another year.
and again: you can't have it all.
