If Life Gives You Lemons ...



 

if life gives you lemons ... wear lemons (or "lemon-ish yellow") ... cardi: primark // late 50s dress: ebay // vintage snake skin belt: thrifted // flats: h&m // vintage bag: flea market // 80s scottie brooch: flea market ...

thanks you so much for your lovely comments on my last post. those words really mean a lot. ... my grandmother is doing a little better - but the doctors aren't still able to tell us more details ... the only thing i can tell is, that my granny is a strong lady - especially if i think about her age of 88 years!

... as some of you might remember ... our bath room got more and more wet every day. yesterday the workers finally found a broken toilette tube (yeah, yaaaah, yippieh... toilette! ... yuck!).
... now we're without a bathroom for a few ... yes ... days? hours? weeks? as i type these words i don't have a working toilette in my flat. no, there is even no toilette in the flat. it's sitting in front of our door in the stairwell. if i'm lucky, the workers will put it back in today ... they gave us the keys to an empty flat two stairs down, so we can use the bathroom there - but in this place the lights aren't installed yet.

Oh je, das klingt ja nach einem richtig großen Spaß! Nicht. Du siehst in dem gelben Kleid aber absolut bezaubernd aus!
Übrigens musst du den Flaneur ja nicht mehr online beziehen, sondern bekommst ihn seit dieser Ausgabe auch an Bahnhofs- und Flughafenbuchhandlungen. :-)

ach herrje, da denkt man ein problem (job) sei gelöst, da kommen schon zwei neue um die ecke... aber wer so gut aussieht (die farbpalette des kleides steht dir hervorragend) der schafft das spielend! btw meine omi lag auch mit 87 darnieder und jetzt haben wir ihren 90sten gefeiert und sie ist wieder die ganz die "alte" :)

OMG!!!! Good luck for the few upcoming days... at home we have had no heater since we came back from vacations... but toilettes, that the worst... by the way, you look gorgeous in yellow, I always hesitate to wear yellow with blond hair.

Oh my, das Badproblem hat sich ja doch noch ganz weit ausgewachsen. Wie furchtbar óÒ Ich glaube, in solchen Situationen müsste ich immer ganz dringend auf Toilette...
Egal, dein Kelid sieht jedenfalls traumhaft aus - so schick sommerlich^^
Schade, dass es in Berlin nicht geklappt hat - aber wir waren echt viel unterwegs (und du hattest ja auch genug um die Ohren).
Liebe Grüße,
Sandy

So sorry to hear about your Grandma, hope she's doing ok. Also sorry to hear about your house woes! Hope they manage to sort it out quickly, what a stressful week you must have had :(

Such a gorgeous dress - I think we blondes look very nice in yellow! This is a dress Betty Draper would be envious of I think :P

Good luck with the plumbing situation, sounds like a total nightmare :(

What a stressful string of events you've been contending with lately, sweetheart. I'm very sorry so many lemons have come your way, and highly admire your positive outlook and desire to try and make the best of everything. That's usually my stance, too.

Sending tons of hugs & sugar (to sweeten the lemonade) your way!

♥ Jessica
