Office Girl ... Roses

simple but nice ... cardi: h&m // simple top: h&m // late 50s skirt: ebay // vintage petticoat underneath: ebay // tights ... // vintage flats: thrifted // another early 60s wicker bag: ebay // bangle: from rio de janeiro // rose necklace: flea market  (detail here) ...

yesterday and today i stayed at home because i got sick this weekend. i have a bad hurting back, hurting bones, the worsed headache ever and little fever ... on monday i wasn't able to do anything else than to spend the whole day in bed suffering. so i leave you with an oufit from last week. it was shot when wheather was still a little warmer ... this look is nothing special but who wears a petticoat to work?

Hat Day

satursday's flea market outfit ... trench: primark // 70s dress with a 40s twist: ebay // tights: aldi // 90s booties: flea market // hat: vintage, from berlin // straw bag: flea market ... this saturday we went to two flea markets in aroudn the town we live and as i was wearing a hat this morning i scored on a total of 7 vintage hats ... propably this was the last big flea market weekend this year. the weatherman says it starts freezing and propably snowing the upcoming weekend.


 this red cutie from the 50s need to get refubished. it need a new ribbon and a new lace.


this one is in a perfect condition ... it's colour is not too perfect for a blonde like me but it fits perfectly. ha, and of course i found an amazing little50s/60s leather bag. isn't it cool ith those studs?

... this red soft cap i also got in creme ... and this summery 50s piece is actually my fav but it doens't fit too good. i will have to play around with it ... propably i have to find the perfect hairdo to make it fit better ... those earrings i found on the flea market as well. didn't pictured two sixties hats ...

advice: what i learned this weekend, if you want to buy a hat (or more) on a flea market wear one! when i passed by some seller's stalls they started talking to me because of the hat i wore and then they unpacked their little treasures ... all in all i spent 16€ on all hats i got this day. mega score!

Office Girl ... Pants

friday's office outfit ... cardi/blazer: old h&m // vintage top: thrifted // vintage pants: ebay // shoes: flea market // 50s/60s bag: ebay (5 € incl. shipping) ... sadly i don't wear those amazing pants too often but their patter and cremy/off white/grey-ish/non gray-ish colour is quite hard to mix ... i know you can't recognize the problem on the pictures ... but if you want to step back in time to check out older outfits with those  ... pants ... pants

pencil skirt

this saturday's outfit ...  vintage coat: thrifted // top: zara // white singlet: karstadt // 80s stretch skirt: thrifted (3€) // vintage belt: came with a skirt // tights: h&m // two tones: deichmann (for flea market shopping in the cold i wore those booties) // 70s straw bag: flea market // vintage rose pendant: flea market // handmade 50s gloves: from yesterday's flea market, i had to wear them right away  ...

some of you might know, that i really have problems to find good fitting pencil skirts. normally a pencil skirt that fits on the hips is far too wide on the waist and a skirt that would fit on the waist perfectly would be far too slim to get pulled over my wide hips ... this is one of the reasons i prefer wide and flared skirts ...
some days ago i found this soft and stretchy pencil skirt. it fits almost perfectly, it's super comftable, warm and - ha - i'm able to ride a bike when i wear it. i suppose, you will see this skirt a lot this winter season ...
