Past Sunday we went to a special Papermoon photo shoot at Cherrymuffin Studios ... We had tons of fun, met some friends and are truly happy with the results. As we barely ever take pictures as a couple, those shots are really special to us.
Sorry, this winter seems to be darket then others .... in the end it seems darker to me ... I don't have daylight to take outfit pictures .... So, I try to keep you entertained with some more pictures from Instagram ...
Looking for some vintagey things to do this Sunday in Berlin?!
Luckily my flu is on the way outand I'm feeling much better. So I will make it to the Vintage Market on Sunday ... Come and visit us at Old Fleas!
Sorry, but I really ran out of new pictures. As I'm working longer ours at the office since this fall, I rarely catch any daylight to shoot prober outfit pictures. So for right now I'm just able to feed the few followers being left with pictures from my Instagram.
All outfits are from the transition from fall to winter ...
Dress, hat and cropped jacket all from the 1940s ...
Dress from the 1950s... Purse probably from the 40s.
dress, shoes, purse and cropped jacket are from the 40s ... beret is modern, brooch from the 50s
I don't like spots ... When you mostly wear true vintage you start to fear dots, pin dots, POLKA dots, DOTS, because this is the print for the so called 50s fashion you find on cheap repros. So if you are a lover of the truest of the true - at a special point - you start to avoid dots of any kind, just not to look repro. Silly isn't it?! Happened to me and as I heard, happened to quite a few vintage lovers more.
But to be true, dots are a true to era print. You really find more then a few true 1950s dresses (where the dots-thing got inspired from) and for sure you find some dots in 40s fashion ...
The past year I came across a few dresses ... with dots. With all three I went through a struggle, if I could deal with the hated print. Everytime I decided that the print shouldn't be an issue to me. The fun thing about those three actually is, that I was so lost into thinking about dots - that I totally igonred the fact that I bought navy with white dots, navy with white-red-ish dots and again ... navy with white dots.
The dress on the bottom is my favourite out of the dot dress family - I was just able to get my hands on her, as a friend didn't snagged her up earlier ... tatataaa .... because she doesn't like to wear dots anymore. Lucky me.
Dotilicious. Gimme more.
Pictures aare all taken from my Instagram, as I ran out of pictures.
1940a shrug: Fräullein Anders Shop, Berlin // 40s dress: Kleidermarkt // shoes: modern, flea market // repro clam shell purse: Original Crochet-by-Q // 40s tilt hat: thrifted in the USA
A few weeks ago I purchased this dress at one of my Berlin vintage bargain honey holes ... I was already a little roomy when I tried it on ... But I thought it was ok. I especially liked that the spots aren't white but slightly red ... You can't see this in the photos.
Whatever, I took it home and the other day, I turned this wrinkled little ball it was, into a dress. Well surprise, through steaming the dress got almost a size bigger and 10 cm longer. I still like it ... what do you think?!
