Winterboots Ruin Everything ...

this is what i wore this morning to another wintery visit to a flea market ... modern coat: from a traditional turkish fashion store // vintage muff-bag: flea market or ebay // cardi: primark // top h&m // 50s kitten skirt: flea market // super warm late 70s winter boots: flea market // beret: probably from a flea market ...

this morning i decided to take my warm, warm, warm 70s wedge boots out for a stroll over a couple of wintery outdoor flea markets. since a sneaking cold is trying to overtake my body, i felt like getting dressed as warm as possible ... these boots aren't beauties by far and i knew that before i put them on  today ... but i was really shocked when i saw the pictures on the computer later. ok, they still go quite ok with the coat  ... aaaah, but they totally ruin my casual stripy-kitty-cozy-almost-sick-look (which isn't too exciting anyhow)!!!!
funny, that i found a nie pair of warm lined 40s-50s lace up booties on the flea market today ... but if the bitter berlin cold comes to town i will go back to these super warm 70s boots again. i prefer to look silly than to freeze.

what kind of footwear do you wear with your vintage looks, when it's bitter cold outside?!

Strawberry Cream Cake

this is what i wore to the cold flea market past sunday ... cardi: h&m // 50s woolen dress: ebay // vintage snake skin belt: thrifted // vintage boots: ebay // 60s bag: flea market // hat: h&m via flea market // 50s-60s gloves: flea market ...

this outfit reminds me on a choclate cake with strawberry cream ... it's always good to think about cake .... i'm very busy with just 'life' right now ... so there is not much time left to be be around in blogland  ... i hope, you don't mind.

for those who asked ... there will be post about the hairdressers magazines i bought on the last flea market ... don't expect too much! they are not as good as they look at the first sight.

Getrödelt, Gefunden, Gefreut ... Taschensonntag

hallo ihr lieben freunde von getrödelt, gefunden, gefreut ... eigentlich dachte ich, diesen monat muss ich passen, denn vor lauter trauertagen im schönen nieselig grauen november fielen alle flohmarkte flach. ... doch gestern, am letzten tag des monats haben wir uns in aller frühe auf einem tiefgaragen-flohmarkt im berliner umland die nasen rot gefrohren ... aber mit erfolg! kennt ihr das, wenn ihr auf dem flohmarkt fast ausschließlich dinge aus einer richtung findet? also,  ... z. B. habe ich schmuck-, dekoartikel- oder halt mal taschen-sonntage. heute war offensichtlich taschen-tag ... die 60er-70er jahre tooled leather bag aus mexico und die beiden kunststoff-korbtäschchen habe ich von einer netten dame (zusammen 7€). die beiden korbtaschen sind ziemlich sicher nur sehr nette reproduktionen und nicht wirklich allzu vintage - aber dafür sehr, sehr hübsch. das klapp-körbchen aus den 40er-50er jahren war ein ganzgroßartiger fund, denn irgendwann im sommer hatte ich so eines auf irgendeinem tollen blog gesehen und wollte dann auch eines: ich alter nachmacher ... naja, nun hab ich meine eigenens. weiter gab es einen 50er hut zu finden, drei frühe 60er jahre hutnadeln in rosen form, zwei 50er jahre frisuren magazine und eine midcentury perlmut brosche .... ich bin mit der ausbeute des gestrigen ausflugs in die kälte eigentlich recht zufrieden ...

wenn ihr wissen möchtet, was die anderen trödlerettes und trödler so gefunden haben klickt euch rüber zu beswingtes allerlei und getrödelt, gefunden, gefreut

english recap: hey, dear friends ... this is what i found on yesterday's flea market ... this time: mostly bags but also a 50s hat, a hairdressers magazine, rose hat pins and a lovely mid century brooch ... the 40s to 50s fold baset is one of my favourite finds today, i was searching for one the whole summer ...
don't worry, next post i will be back in full english again!

You Can't Have It All

... this is what i wore two days in a row ... busy bee i am right now ... vintage cardi: thrifted in the usa // 50s cotton skirt: made in berlin store // belt: primark // 80-90s boots: flea market // vintage 'puss in boots brooch: ebay // 50s wicker purse: flea market // 50s hat: ebay ...

sorry, for my unplanned absence last week but the past days were pretty exciting and filled with decisions, hopes and new things .... first thing: we found a new bigger flat which costs almost the same rent as the place we are living in now! the best thing about the new flat is, that dear friends of ours are living in the same building! see me dancing on the table! what's a little sad about moving ... we will move to a total different part of berlin. for sure i will miss to have my favourite vintage shop just around the corner, i have to find good tailor and i won't be close to flowmarkt at maybachufer anymore ... you can't have it all ...

the other new thing in my life are my new glasses! as you might remeber, i was playing around with original 50s frames and i was actually totally into bringing one of them to the optician ... but in the end, i felt not happy with my favourite true vintage frame. somehow it was eating my eyebrows and it was a tinybit too small for my face ... when my husband went last week to a optician shop i stepped over a special offer. Three frames/glasses fro one prize!!! and they had some quite 50s inspired frames in the shop ... so i ended up with this pair and two other ones i will pick up from the store soon. ha, and i can still wear my old frames, my vision didn't changed!

... and my work contract got extended, which is good and bad ... actually i was waiting for some changes that didn't happened. whatever i will be able to pay my rent another year.
and again: you can't have it all.

Inspirations From The Past: Autumn 1941

today's issue of inspiration from the past we peek into the magazine deutsche mode zeitung from august 1941. autumnal wartime fashion. holding this magazine in my hands makes me think about more then wonderful dresses and hats ... the magazine itself is almost falling to pieces but it survived the war, even the patterns are still in it! ... who was the lady who bought it back then? who was she? was she into the nazi party - or not? did her family survive the war?  ... she defenitly did survive - with her the magazines. i bought them from her grand daughter on a flea market a while ago. the family had to empty out her little house after she died in 2013 ...

Follow The Signs ... Finally You Will See Motörhead

after one week my hearing has finally recovered ... so, i was ready to pick out a few of the best (least blurry) pictures from past sunday's motörhead show here in berlin. ... yes, we had backstage passes - thanks to my rock n roll husband - who knows the right people that worked or played that night!

...that day two dreams came true ... the first little one: finally seeing motörhead performing live on stage!!!! dream two needs some words of explenation ... some of you for sure know the documentation 'lemmy'. in this movie the camera follows lemmy quite a lot through long hallways behind the different stages. for some strange reasons it became a my secret dream to go behind him, when he walks to the stage. ... in the end i didn't got the chance to walk behind lemmy to the stage that night - BUT after the show we went behind the stage to get back to our friends ... and suddenly lemmy kilmister appeared in front of me, walking back to his dressing room. this moment i felt so shocked that i wasn't able to grab my camera, i was just following him happily giggeling under my breath ... just two short minutes that felt like a year! wow.
... later we had some beers with the awesome guys from the damned. to me is was a night to remember! somehow i felt a little bit like teenager again.

Cutting It Short

this is what i wore a couple of days ago to work ... vintage knit dress worn as a top: thrifted // 50s skirt: made in berlin store // belt: mango // booties: clarks // bag: modern ...

who follows me on instagram might have seen already a little sneak peak of this outfit ... here it is in full size. sadly the little light that was left that day when i shot those pictures made them just blurry and furry. even if you can't see too much of the lovely details of this wonderful sweater ... i want to leave some words about it. this piece is actually an awesome wiggle knit dress made from wool and cashmere. ... perfect to go out in a cold wintery night. i always dreamed about wearing it to a new years eve dinner ... why didn't i? to be honest: my bum is far too fat for it. sad but true. so this dress was waiting in my closet for some better days ... or a diet. as i know that my wide hips won't ever dissapear and my bum won't turn smaller by getting older - i decided to give the dress a try as a top. the dress/skirt part is still there hidden under the  new look length skirt ... now i think of turning it into a real sweater.
what do you think?

When There Was No Flea Market ...

this is what i wore this morning to go flea market shopping ... my trustworthy early 50s coat: thrifted // vintage dirndl cardi: flea market // 50s dress: flea market // 50s hat: ebay // red vintage gloves: thrifted // tights: primark // 90s winter booties: vintage shop // purse: old primark ... sadly there was not  only one flea market today ... even the winter markets we went to last year were gone with the wind ...

i have to go, the man and i are out and about to see motörhead playing tonight here in berlin ...i have to change into something more 'rock chick meets vintage me'.

as if this outfit is the only (almost) black and white look i managed to picture during the past couple of weeks this post is linked to

English Grammar Novelty Skirt

... cardi: oooold h&m // knit top: modern no name // 50d novelty print skirt: made in berlin store // vintage belt: thrifted // shoes: flea market // 50s purse: flea market ...

i wore this outfit a couple of weeks ago ... actually i didn't felt like posting those photos, because the photos turned out quite pale and don't show this skirt's actual colour palette and beauty ... but this week i just spent in professional black and white office looks ... so this outfit makes it in today's post.
... i found the english grammar skirt the same day i bought the bollywood novelty print skirt - but this one was 50% off! less then 15€ for a circle skirt full with little lessons of enlish grammar ... each time i wear it i will shoe you a new chapter ...
