Inspirations From The Past // June 1957

the print of my new 50s skirt reminds me on the dress that is on the magazine cover ... it took me a while to find the pictures, i shot from this magazine almost one year ago, on my laptop. i didn' t posted them last year, because these summery dresses need to be seen in summer time ... and june starts in a couple of days ... i hope you get inspired by some fashion from june 1957. enjoy!

Capri Girl

this is what i wore on past sunday for checking out two flea markets in town ... vintage square dance top: thrifted, pony hütchen shop // pants: thrifted and altered // belt: istanbul // flats: flea market // 50s-60s basket: thrifted // fruit brooch: style me betty // fakelite bangle: flea market ...

i'm wearing pants ... capri pants! i love them!!! actually these gingham capri pants looked quite 'old lady'-like, when i found them in a thrift store for 2€ ... but i saw their potential right away and took a chance ... reproductions and original capri pants never fit me right. most of them are too wide on the waist or too tight on the hips and legs ... so i stick normally to skirts. but once in a while i really want to wear pants - and 50s capri pants i always wanted to add to my wardrobe. so, if nothing fits right, you have to create your own  ...
so i took these granny-ish pants to the tailor around the corner and told her my plan to turn them into 50s style capri pants by taking in the legs and waist... she really liked the idea and did a fantastic job. sadly i didn't took a picture of them before they got altered ...
all in all i spend 22€ on them. i'm super happy with the result ...

... 50s blouse: ebay // 60s skirt: enay // belt: came with a dress // shoes: c&a // early 60s bag: thrfted // bangles: thrifted ...

i wore this outfit before but the skirt and top go so well together, that i can't wear the combination just once ... (here). probably i will wear it again.
do you have seperate pieces that are made for each other?

Red Gingham

this is what i wore today to go for a walk ... cardi: primark // 50s blouse: vintage yardsale // 80s square dance skirt: made in berlin store // vintage belt: flea market // flats: h&m // 50-60s souvenir bag: recently on ebay // bamboo bangles: thrifted & ebay ... 

i found a awesome vintage basket purse in a little shop while strolling through the streets of my neighbourhood and had a super fun chat with the shop owner ... hopefully i will find this lady's booth on tomorrow's flea market to see all the other treasures she sells. this month i'm a little low on money, so i actually shouldn't buy anything else but i love to walk over a flea market in the early morning sun ... it's a bit challenging but life is full with challenges.

(even if my shoes and the cardi are not p.c., hope bello doesn't mind...)

Yellow Is The New Happy

this is my newest skirt, look at it's wonderful rose print. ...and this is quite new colour palette on me ... green, yellow and grey ... 50s blouse: vintage yardsale // 50s skirt: thrifted // belt: from my mum // sandals: no name // straw bag: ebay // 60s ear clips: flea market ... i wore this look to work today.

ooooooops, you caught me dancing .... on monday ... after work. the super warm weather made me dance on the stairs before grosery shopping... 90s top: thrifted // 50s patio skirt: made in berlin store // belt: flea market // golden flats: flea market // h&m bag: flea market // 60s guitar brooch: ebay // bamboo bangles: tjhrifted in the states ...

actually i never liked yellow too much on me. don't you think, that yellow is not made for blondes? a bright yellow looks so wonderful on brunettes and redheads ... but -hey- this summer yellow makes me super happy!
what are your yellow experiences?
... ok, gonna get some ice cream. see you soon. enjoy the sun!

Office Girl ... Checkeres & Plaid

this is a more casual oufit for work - colourwise ... i wore it last week on a day without having any visitors at the office  ... cardi: primark // super light cotton dress from the 50s: made in berlin store // shoes: from my mum // vintage bag: flea market // 50s souvenir brooch: ebay ... it was raining on the way home ... the tip of my shoe is still wet in the picture ....

another outfit i wore on a day without visitors ... so i was able to mix plaid ant two tone shoes ... top: old mango (actually i refound it in my flea market bag) // 50s skirt: made in berlin store // belt: from my mum // handmade petticoat: ebay // shoes: deichmann // straw bag: flea market

i love checkeres and plaid ... some of you might be bored of my little red-green-black plait skirt, which is one of my everyday favourites ... but the brown and green checkered dress is brand new to me. this dress is one more reason to find the perfect dark brown leather shoes ... 

tomorrow i have a long work day at the fair for my company ... so, i got to go ... and, my granny goes back to hospital tomorrow. this week will be the surgery.

this is what i wore yesterday ... having breakfast with the man  ... green cardi: h&m // late 70s cotton dress does 50s: flea market // belt: from my mum // golden flats from the 90s: flea market // vintage seaweed/straw purse: flea market ...

yesterday was the last day with my man before he left for the states for punk rock bowling in vegas, tour managing and visiting his family  ... 5 long weeks without him! in the middle of the night i had to take him to the airport ... actually i wanted to go to the flea market this morning, but sadly it was raining cats and dogs ... so i spent the whole day in bed with tons of tasty food.

Office Girl ... Vintage Skirts & Modern Tops

50s-60s coat: ebay // top: primark // 50s skirt: simply vintage, portland // shoes: clarks // 60s bag: flea market ... black blazer not pictured ...

coat: ebay // blazer: found // top: gina trikot // 50s skirt: ebay // shoes: clarks // straw purse: ebay // 50s necklace: thrifted in the usa ...

the easiest way to wear vintage to work is to mix a modern top with a vintage skirt .... it's comfortable and gives the the look a modern and more 'normal' touch.
i found out, on days without having visitors in the office i'm even able to wear my hair rolled up. ... yeah.

this is what i wore to go fle amrket shopping on sunday ... cardi: collectif // vintage dress: flea market and altered // singlet: karstadt // vintage aigner belt: thrifted // vintage cowboy boots: flea market // h&m bag: flea market ... and this is what i found ... vintage wicker purse // little 50s sewing basket // 60s pickles pins with dice design // 60s-70s hula girl on the phone // late 60s vase // east german 60s plastic basket // celluloid walt disney bambi figure // two vintage decoration swallows made from hard plastic ... a fitted 50s blazer with fur details and a vintage hat ...

the 50s blazer fits me like a glove ... for a flea market buy it wasn't too cheap (20€) and the condition of the fur and lining isn't too great ... but it looks like it's made for me ... just for me.
