Blurry Hair

on wednesday i went to see a burlesque show, so i decided to curl my hair. actually i do this just a few times a year because i hate to spend hours with curl pins or other curlers/papilotes sitting on my head. normally the curls doesn't stay in but finally i found some helpers that work. Even when i came home the curls where still there. 
... sorry for the blurry pictures and no photos of the outfit (which i really liked) but it was already dark, when i got finished. for sure i will wear this outfit again soon.

Sunday Dress

i bought this dress in seattle two months ago. for some reasons i was waiting for a special occasion to wear it the first time. today was a beautiful bright summer sunday and i felt this might be the perfect day to wear it to the flea market ... 50s dress: lucky dry goods, seattle // vintage belt: thrifted  (sadly the loop got lost today) // 50s straw hat: thrifted, somewhere in oregon // dragon fly brooch: flea market // wedges: c&a // h&m bag: flea market ... 

this dress could turn into my new fav dress. it's perfect and you can mix it with almost every colour. ... today on the flea market i found a pair of crocheted yellow gloves. they looked amazing with the dress but it got so hot again that i even had to get rid of my hat ... (i changed into my new headband/bow thing - i got the day before) ... so, i didn't thought about adding gloves to this outfit.
next to the gloves i found a couple of marilyn monroe books, a sewing magazine from the early 50s, a few vintage pieces and some repro/vintage style pieces ... i'm doing much better in my new city as i supposed to do.

the man and i went to a 'garage sale' at a bar around the corner yesterday. the gingham dress,the black and the striped top i got from one vendor, an american girl that sold a lot of great true vintage stuff from the states for so little money. she had a lot more of beautiful dresses but those were far too small around my bust (who wants to have big boobs, if you can have lovely tiny dresses). the 50s tops i got from another girl. those are so great and dead stock! sadly - as everytime with these kind of tops - they don't fit that great ... after the market i went to my first hairdresser appointment in the new city ...

and i like my new hairdresser. i think, she really did a good job on dying and cutting my hair ... this is what i wore ... fav summer blouse: vintage c&a, flea market // 50s skirt: made in berlin vintage (last summer) // belt: came with a top // wedges: c&a // bag: flea market // purple bracelet: thrifted

Girl With The Watermelon

yes, today i ended up posing with a watermelon ... maybe because the red of this dress reminds me of the inside of a watermelon ... 50s cotton dress: ebay // belt: came with a blouse // sandals: no name // bandana: thrifted, deadstock ...

i bought this dress a long while ago on ebay with some other pieces but i never wore it. i won it for 1 €. it's a real 50s dress that never got finished! so i had to do a lot of sewing on it.

oh, and thanks for more than 500 followers on GFC (thanks for being still there)! it means a lot.
