Office Girl ... Blue Seaguls



vintage seagul blouse: flea market // 70s skirt: thrifted in the usa // belt: from istanbul // leather shoes: deichmann (super sale!!!) // 80s seagrass purse: flea market // 50s earrings: gifted ...

i bought this maritime inspired 70s-80s blouse on a flea market here in berlin last summer. for some strange reasons i thought, it would be too big for me. so it ended up in my flea market bag again ... as i went trough the bags of clothes for the big sell on past sunday i discovered it again ... now i'm totally in love with it.

The Only Clowns At This Circus ...







what i wore ... shrug: primark // 40s dress: schwarze truhe,  vintage store berlin // belt: primark // swedish hasbeens: flea market // 50s hat: thrifted in the usa // 50s-60s basket: thrifted // dragonfly brooch: flea market // 60s earclips: flea market // fakelite bangles: flea market ....

on wednesday the gorgeous g. from in the ruins of berlin and i met to visit the big vintage circus. this is vintage fair that is connected to the bread & butter fair and berlin fashion week events.  
i was so excited to go to a real vintage fair here in germany ... i hurried home after work to get my hair done and to jump in my precious 40s dress, that i actually just wear to special occasions ... isn't a rare vintage fair special enough?!
the past days the weather already had been quite crazy ... hot and super humid. when i took the outfit shots my make up was running down my face ... then pouring rain came down ... luckily the husband took us girls by car to the fair ground. 
... i suppose, we both were pretty suprised not to find a bunch of vintage people in between the fashion and hipster crowd ... and we kind of got scared as the security guy at the door told us that the vintage fair was already removed the day before ... but he wasn't sure about this. so we went in, on the hunt for the vintage circus.
what we found was an empty outdoor fashion play ground with almost no people and an abandoned circus tent with no vintage vendors, no vintage people - just us: two little vintage girls in the drip-drop rain.
frustration! ... we decided to have a couple of drinks somewhere else ...
in the end we had a great evening without talking much about vintage and fashion.

ps.: today i got some information about the abandoned vintage fair from one of the vendors ... on tuesday there was a thunderstorm over berlin - actually they were expecting a tornado - so the police (!!!!) cleared out the outdoor area of the fashion fair and some vendors had to leave their stalls with all their vintage treasures behind ... from the inside they were able to see their items getting ruined by the the wind and rain. what a sad and shocking story!
