What Was Left At The End Of The Day ...

This is what I wore to work some day last week ... vintage cropped knit jacket (70s does 40s): thrifted in the USA // top: Primark // 50s cotton skirt: Made In Berlin Store // vitnage patent leather belt: trhifted in the USA // booties: Clarks // 50s hat: ebay // 40s-50s purse: ebay // bamboo brooch: thrifted ...

The past couple of weeks I played around with different kinds of curlers to find an easy way to curl my hair during the work week. I'm a bad sleeper anyhow, so I really don't need to be uncomfortable in the night. At this point I'm still in the process of playing and trying around, getting upset with my hair and moist weather once in a while ... Soon you will find a little post about here on the blog.
In the pictures above you see the result of what was left  fo the curls after work.

On Instagram you can see the curls in a earlier and better state ...

Shop My Wardrobe
There is also a Miss Candyfloss sailor skirt and another deadstock bullet bra ... and probably some more pieces to come ...

hey, hey, here are some pieces that I posted recently on eBay. Pieces that never ever fit me or I never started the tailor work on them to make them fit ...   the two dresses are quite petite and might have some flaws ... the 30s-40s lace coat is a size S, it needs some fixing but is still a beauty! the bullet bras are 50s deadstock and quite petite, aswell. 
if you need some informations about the items in english - you are welcome to ask!

The Vintage-Eeeeeeek!

Eeeeeeeek! I totally scored on the flea market today! Since then I can't stop to make this sound of hysterical joy and happiness: Eeeeeeeeeek!
Actually I put myself on a 'don't buy anything in february, because you are broke'-thing and it worked out perfectly ... since today, when this lovely early-spring sunday made go for a walk ... the flea market is just three minutes far from home, I can't blame myself that I ended up there ... I just had 15 Euros on me ... and I came home with two 50s skirts in almost pristine conditions and a dress  ... I can't believe it!!! Look at the ballerina novelty print skirt. This piece I have seen as a dress on etsy for a lot of money .... The red dress is very special piece, aswell. Maybe it looks quite wrinkled and shabby but for a late 30s-early 40s dress -that survived WWII- it is in a pretty good state. the wool fabric seems to have no stains and no holes ... a few darned spots aand a button is missing, but, well ... I suppose in 75 years i won't look that good anymore ... sadly, I don't make it in the dress! I know it would fit but the buttoned slits for putting it on are far too small - and my shoulders too wide. So  I have to find another vintage loving home for it.
Eeeeeek, the skirts fit quite well! Happy, happy, happy! Do the Vintage-Eeeeeek!

did you find anything nice lately that made you go 'eeeeeeeeeek!'.

The Red Gloves, That Aren't Pink

This is what i wore last sunday on a little stroll over the flea market (came home empty handed) and later to a gig of our dear friend Trixie Trainwreck ... 90s does 40s wild silk sweater: ebay //  skirt: zara // vintage snake skin belt: hand-me-down // vintage boots: flea market // 50s hat: flea market // 50s-60s purse: thrifted // vintage plastic swallow pins:  from flea markets // 60s gloves: flea market // 50s earclips: flea market ...

There was actually a total different text waiting for you in this post ... but when I asked my man to check the text on some funny sounding phrases (it is not that easy to write in a foreign language) - we started argueing about the colour of the gloves like crazy.
In real they are red ...on the photos they might appear a little pink-ish.
In the end I don't even want to post the actual post anymore ... which was actually quite nice, it came with some historical informations and a little declaration of love to my man. But, well ... not after fighting about red and pink. Grrrrrrrrh.

Sorry, I didn't made it to an Japanese inspired look.

Let Go

office girl outfit ... cardi: primark // 50s skirt: made in berlin store // belt: mango // 50s lace up winter boots: flea market // 50s hat: flea market // modern bag: jumex // vintage swallow pin: flea market ...

i'm so tired about winter and winter clothes ... but today i wore a little 50s hat the first time, i bought past summer in a flea market in my home town for quite a good price.
the fur lined winter lace boots from the 50s  - i'm actually so proud of - are a tiny little bit too small for my wide feet. ... but i'm not ready to let them go this winter. they are still so new to me and so perfect for wintery outfits.

Getrödelt, Gefunden, Gefreut ... Kleinkram Und Tulpe

es ist mal wieder zeit für getrödelt, gefunden, gefreut und ds zum ersten mal in diesem noch recht jungen jahr. da unsere neue wohnung ebenso jung und frisch ist wie das jahr, wollte ich euch eigentlich unsere neuen midcentury möbel-mitbewohner vorstellen. die kamen als echte schnäppchen daher ... doch da mein männe und ich die vergangenen 10 tage die wohnung in ein lazaret umwandeln mußten, gingen die einzugsarbeiten nicht weiter und dekorative fotos von unserer wunderbar rosanen sofa garnitur und dem hochpolierten sideboard ließen sich noch nicht schießen ... somit gibt es heute nur den kleinkram zusehen, den ich vor 14 tagen zwischen den flohmärkten vom arkonaplatz und mauerpark geschossen habe ...
wie ihr auf den bildern seht, gab es einige ohrclips (plastic, bambus und thermoset aus berliner produktion, ich denke mal frühe 60s), zwei broschen und zwei 50er deko schalen. ausserdem gab es noch einen dunkelblauen 50er hut mit federn ... der wollte sich aber nicht ansehenlich fotografieren lassen, somit gibt es den irgendwann auf meinem kopf zunsehen.

ein kleines rätsel gibt mir aber die überdimensionierte rote tulpenbrosche (hier getragen instagram) auf. ich bekomme die einfach nicht datiert ... sie is etwa 10 cm lang, das rot is auflackiert und an der weißen stelle wieder abgetragen ... also recht künstlerisch. der pin auf der rückseite kann gut midcentury sein, doch erinnert mich dieses teil verdammt an die 90er jahre (yves rocher werbegeschenk von tantchen oder so). auf der anderen seite paßt dieses riesen ding wunderbar zu 40er looks.  vielleicht habt ihr ja ein paar ideen zu der tulpe.
vermutlich wird sie zukünftige die etwas angefressenen federn von meinem neuen blauen hut ersetzen ... egal von wann sie ist.

ok, und jetzt gehen wir alle mal rüber zu beswingtes allerlei, um zu sehen was die anderen so getrödelt haben. have fun!

actually i wanted to present our new vintage furniture that moved into our new home this month ... but the 10 days virus we had to deal with ruined my plans. so today's getrödelt, gefunden, gefreut shows just my random finds from the flea market stroll two weeks ago ...
any ideas from which era this huge plastic tulip might be? the red is paint on white plastic (whatever), the pin in the back could be midcentury ... is it from the 40s or maybe from the 90s?! i have no idea!!! help!
