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.

Your new glasses look great, and I love this outfit - especially the Puss in Boots brooch!

I hope the new flat is great. It's wonderful living close to good friends, and I'm sure you'll find lots of things to love in the new neighbourhood.

Sounds like things are going well - lovely to find a new place close to friends! Love that cat brooch. x

Rebecca hat gesagt…

Yay for a new flat! Also - I LOVE your shoes! Gorgeous! And yay for new glasses!

You're so right, we cant' have it all. We are in the middle of deciding if we want to renew our same flat for next year. Decisions, decisions!

Seid ihr nicht vor kurzem erst umgezogen? Ich wünsche euch auf jedem Fall alles gute für die neue Wohnung, es ist toll, wenn ihr dann gleich eure Freunde als Nachbarn habt :)
Und die Brille ist auch sehr chic. Ich glaube, ich brauch auch mal eine neue für's Büro. Ewig mit Kontaktlinsen vor dem PC ist auch nicht sooo toll.

Such exciting, fantastic news, dear gal! I'm thrilled for you and hope that everything goes as smooth as silk with your move across the city.

Beautiful cold weather outfit. I love that it's the time of year for sweaters and tights (and lace up boots) again.

Big hugs & tons of happy December wishes,
♥ Jessica

The glasses are real pretty - I have a pair i found in a thrift shop a while ago, in good condition, i'm waiting to start working to put in frames.

Take care

Liking the glasses (being a "glasses" girl myself) and the total outfit is a winner. The pin is a totally cute detail.
