sometimes a simple t-shirt is the perfect partner for your new skirt ... old pink tee: h&m // 50s cotton skirt: made in berlin store // belt: primark // 60s pumps: flea market (sadly they fell apart during the shoot!) // 50s-60s patent leather bag: flea market // 50s-60s elephant souvenir brooch: ebay ...

before i changed into the tee, i wore this to work ... shrug: primark // 50s top: wowsville flea market last year // 50s skirt: made in berlin // shoes: deichmann // 50s purse: flea market // bracelet: flea market ...

doesn't this skirt looks like a modern painting?

Fight The Cold With Some Yellow

my first weapon to fight the chilly weather, the beloved yellow super summer skirt ... vintage blouse: flea market // 50s skirt: veist kleidergeschichten // 80s belt: thrifted // swedish hasbeens: flea market // bag: flea market ...

more yellow against the august cold ... cardi: h&m // early 60s dress: ebay // vintage belt: flea market // wedges: c&a // bag: flea market // 60s guitar souvenir brooch: ebay

looks like summer is already over in august ... i'm freezing a lot lately ... and i had to wear tights the past days ... and coats ...and scarfs ... this are actually all the things you don't want to wear in august. so leave you today with two yellow outfits from a couple of weeks ago, when it was still a little warmer ... wearing a lot of happy yellow didn't make the weather change ...

First Violin

look my new skirt plays the violin ...  50s linen blouse: vintage yard sale // 50s novelty print skirt: made in berlin store // shoes: ebay // straw purse: flea market // straw hat: flea market // fakelite bangles: flea markets ... the violin skirt doesn't come alone  ... he brings a couple of friends! for sure you will see them soon.

i'd wish i would have owned this skirt earlier. in my old job i was organizing classical concerts ... the print matches the classical theme perfectly. ... now my work looks quite different but for sure you will see it again, because this skirt is a great piece for autumn ...

B(L)ack To Work

this could get my favourite office look ... little vintage jacket: thrifted in the usa last year (this one is hard to date. it looks pretty 40s but the seams look quite modern) // t-shirt: h&m // repro skirt: rock steady // shoes: clarks // early 50s pattern purse: antique mall  in puyallap // 60s wooden cherry brooch: flea market

... vintage dress: colours berlin // vintage sandals // 50s straw purse: flea market ...

i'm back to work for 10 days now, it's time for my first 'office girl' post after the holidays ... as long we don't have visitors in the office i can wear my hair rolled up. next week we have some important meetings, then i will wear my hair as boring as possible ... and for sure i will wear some more black, grey and white ...

Summer -?-

this is a look i wore last week when weather didn't felt like fall ... 50s shrug: ebay // late 50s dress: schwarze truhe vintage // sandals: flea market // 50s-60s purse: thrifted // 50s necklace: thrifted //  60s ear clips: flea market ...

i refound this little yellow 50s shrug somewhere in my suit cases i use for storage. i remember that it came with a 50s convolut i won on ebay a year ago. at this point there was nothing in my wardrobe it worked with. hey, but it goes perfectly with my blue dress i bought a couple of months ago. the perfect mix for summer ... i hope summer returns!

Dirndl Season

dirndl me ... early 60s dirndl/trachtenkleid: ebay // belt: from istanbul // wedges: primark // 50s purse: ebay // bamboo bangles: thrifted ... with those wedges i dressed it pretty modern.

dirndl season is close ... means: oktoberfest starts on the 20th of september ... as being NOT a girl from bavaria i'm not very much into oktoberfest things and i never went there - for some strange reasons i started to buy vintage dirndls from the 50s and 60s when ever i was able to get my hands on one during the last couple of years. but, i can't collect everything that's from these eras, so i decided to let some of them go on ebay ...
when i took the pictures of the dirndls i fell in love again with this little 60s dirndl. i will keep it. it is quite short, so it looks pretty girlish ... but i could let the hem out (probably about 6 cm) to make it look more classical.
what do you think? make it longer or keep it as short as it is?

if you got into oktoberfest mood click the link under the picture to get to the auctions

Look, What He Got Me ...

some of you wanted to know what the man got me in this lovely vintage store for my birthday ... here it is: tatatataaaaa, a fantastic 50s bamboo wall decoration which is actually ment to hold flower pots (how is this actually called? anyone?) ... mine is holding vintage accessoires. the fixtures, that are actually ment to hold the flower pots are perfectly to hold hats. great i love this thing!!! (in the picture at the bottom you can see it on the left ... without any decoration)

he also got me a 50s flamingo picture and a tiny bamboo bowl to put in some broochs and a small bamboo shelf. somehow the bamboo shelf is suddenly filled with my man's vintage radio collection ... maybe he got this actually for himself ... hm ...

New Blouse Two Outfits

in the morning i wore ... 50s linen blouse: delight vintage, wiesbaden // 50s waffle piquee skirt: ebay // vintage belt: flea market // peep toes: flea market // 50s-60s poodle purse: ebay ... later i changed into...

50s linen blouse: delight vintage, wiesbaden // vintage square dance skirt: made in berlin // vintage belt: flea market // bag: flea market // flats: primark ...

i was looking fo a 50s blouse like this for a while. the classical 50s blouse comes with a very high neck line, which doesn't makes me feel pretty summery and - to be true - it makes me look old. i love this special neckline because it shows enough skin without being sexy.

Midcentury Paradise

when we were visiting home, we came across this little vintage shop in wiesbaden filled with furniture, decoration pieces and more knickknacks from the 30s up to the 70s ... everything is reasonable priced. if we had more room in the car, more things would have moved to berlin ... but my man got me my birthday present there ... for sure you will see it soon.

if you life in the rhein-main area or if you visit wiesbaden, go and check out eigenart7 at sedanplatz 7 in wiesbaden.

i don't get paid for this - i just liked this fun shop!
