Time For Boots

on tuesday it was the first time i had to wear boots. i wanted to get some vegetables from the turkish market around the corner but it was chilly and totally rainy. ... sweater: thrifted zara, altered // belt: from my mum // 50s skirt: simply vintage, portland, us // boots: deichmann // vintage bag: thrifted // hat: flea market //  60s gloves: thrifted ... i know, these boots ruin the chic look of this outfit but i wasn't able to go out with other shoes ... 
on wednesday night i wore almost the same look - a little bit more dolled up - with my  little blue tilt hat and my cotton 50s top ... and some dark blue kitten heels ... and my new blue bag. sadly i never take pictures of my 'going out' looks.

look at our new room mate! little twiggy moved in one week ago, after we found her on the flea market. the french seller told me, she got her from the old hairdresser of her grandparents. they live in a little town in the middle of france. this head was sitting in the shop since she can remember ...
... some of my readers asked to see more of my wardrobe ... here is a little sneak peak. luckily i got some more of my clothes out of storage last week end when we went south ... it's still just a little bit of my huge collection. i never made my everyday life with just a few shoes  and bags ... it's a challenge!

it's early fall, it's time for socks ... finally i found some cute ones -with a little lace on top- at h&m ... 70s does 40s blouse: thrifted in the states // joop! pants: thrifted // shoes: deichmann // 60s patent leather bag: flowmarkt nowkoelln // 50s hat: ebay ... 

wow, i felt quite surprised when i looked at these pictures. this blouse makes my boobies look huge - maybe  i should change the name of this post from 'socks' into 'b... ? well, no.

the next 4 days you won't hear from me probably. the man and i are going south to get some more clothes (warm clothes) from our storage room and visiting just a few beloved people. i will be back next week. 
have a nice weekend!

Too Dolled Up?

i bouhgt this cute little 70s does 50s sundress some weeks ago and i wore it a lot since ... here are two of the outfits ... summery version:  huge spotted dress: flea market // leather belt: old h&m // shoes: deichmann // 50s necklace: thrifted in the states // 40s bag: ebay  // bracelet: flea market ... fall-ish outfit: cardi: thrifted // my beloved 'worn-to-dust' flats: primark // straw bag: flea market

i bought this dress on katermarket here in berlin from a friend. she told me that she really loves this dress but everytime she was planning to wear it, she felt like being too dolled up. i really was surprised when i heard her words, because i got this dress as an everyday piece. it's fun how different people feel about the same clothes ...

a quite uncommon silhouette on me - luckily i found a wiggle skirt that fits me ... zara sweater: altered and thrifted // vintage belt: flea market // vintage skirt: thrifted (2,50€ but i had to do some fixing) // tights with seem: h&m // flats: vagabond // 50s gloves: flea market // 50s hat: ebay // 60s bag: flea market ...

... another new but -as usual- flared skirt ... 50s blouse: vintage yard sale // 50s skirt: made in berlin, vintage store // shoes: vagabond // vintage aigner belt: thrifted // 50s bag: vintage yard sale // bracelets: flea market ... the last time i wore this look, i wore heels. this looks much better because of the length of the skirt, but i had to do a lot of walking the past days so i stuck to my super comfy new flats.

Inspiration FromThe Past // 1940



when i was packing for the move  a few months ago i found five more sewing magazines the man had found for me on a flea market. i really had forgotten about their existence. before i sat them in a box to put them into storage i took picture to be able to share them with you. aren't all these outfits just adorably beautiful?! ... the perfect inspiration for the last days of summer and the first days of fall ...

Meet Some Friends ...


this is what wore, when we went to a barbecue with some nice friends on saturday. it was still nice and warm outside ... 50s cotton dress: ebay // leather belt: old h&m // my new pointy flats: vagabond // 40s bag: ebay // earrings: flea market ... yeah, lazy me curled  the hair again. this time i used my man's hair spray and ended up looking quite fuzzy. a fuzzy curl is better than no curl.
