Cowgirl - Or Just A Sheep

vintage chunky crocheted coat: thrifted // cardi: H&M // vintage bulgarian silk blouse: hand-me-
down from my granny // skirt: zara // vintage belt: flea market // cowboy boots: flea market // 50s purse: flea market // vintage necklace: flea market ...

I truly love cowgirl looks and this is one of the things  I can't wait  for to do when it gets warm ... : to rock quite a few cowboy inspired looks. 
What to do, if you really feel like wearing a western inspired outfit, but it is still cold and you don't want to freeze your a... off on your stroll over the sunday morning flea market? I ended up in a kind of 40s inspired landgirl/cowgirl thing ... The silk blouse is probably from the 70s and it was made in the traditional style of Bulgaria. It's actual shape, the darts at the waist and the embroidery remind me on the 'country fashion' blouses from the 40s to 50s. Sadly it is quite q bit too big - so it looks puffy on me. Anything else in this look came somehow together ... and works quite good as an vintage country side landgirl look - maybe not as an classical 'yehaaa!-cowgirl', but an european version (my Bulgarian grandfather grew up on a farm and spent a lot of time on horse's backs). 
... Eeeeeer, the husband called me 'my little sheep' the whole morning, because of my huge woolen vintage coat ... Maybe I'm not the cowgirl but the cattle. Baaah!?

today's theme is 'cowgirl inspired' aswell, let's check out what all the other fashionable ladies share ...

Office Girl ... 50s Cotton Dress

I own this 50s cotton dress for a few years now and still love it. I should wear it more often ... It is a perfect vintage piece for work ... cardi: primark // 50s cotton dress: ebay // vintage belt: thrifted // clarks booties // vintage petite point purse: flea market // 50s hat: thrifted ... the hat I just wore on my way to and back from work - not in the office.

This outfit was alreday on Instagram

Stripy Cat

cardi: H&M // 50s cotton skirt: Simply Vintage, Portland // vintage belt: thrifted in the US // shoes: clarks // 50s leather purse: flea market // vintage dragon fly brooch: flea market ...

I wore this outfit last week to work ... some of you might have seen it already on Instagram. This is one of my favourite skirts ever! What do you think, should I shorten it! As you probably can see the hemline was originally quite a bit shorter (there is a light line 6 cm above the hem). I got it like that and feel still unsure if I should change it to the original length by taking it in.

Stay With Me A Little While

50s cotton dress: Ebay // cardigan: H&M //  vitnage belt: thrifted // vintage shoe: flea market // vintge seagrass purse: flea market // 60s sweater pin worn as a brooch: flea market ...

This 50s dress I won a couple of weeks ago on Ebay. I fell in love with it the second I opened the box. the green, blue, purple and yellow go perfectly with my skin. Sadly I had to find out that the dress has some more flaws as it was said in the auction. the cotton has quite a few tiny holes and there are some parts of the fabric that are quite thin ... For sure this beauty of a day dress won't stay with me forever. But I got it quite cheap ... so I hope for some time to spend together.

Smile, It Is (Almost) Spring!

cardigan: H&M // 50s-60s cotton dress: thrifted at Resales // belt: from Istanbul // shoes: Deichmann // 50s purse: flea market // vintage swallow brooch: flea market ...

I wore this outfit this last work week, on a day that really made me feel like spring is here ... It was just wonderful out! 
... Sadly I have to put out some winter clothes again to survive tomorrow's two flea markets, my man wants to go to ... It got quite cold again!!! But I decided, I will put on my favourite 50s wool winter skirt, I almost lived in it this cold season. I have no idea why it never made it in an outfit post yet!

Look, It Is Her Wearing Pants Again!

This is what I wore on Sunday to the flea market. It was pretty cold that morning ... I ended up in pants, yes, pants again!  ... cardi: H&M // pants: H&M // vintage belt: flea market // vintage lace up boots: Ebay // sterling bow brooch: flea market // midcentury hat: thrifted (3,50€) // tooled leather purse: thrifted ...

those pants are the red-ish/brown/copper version of the black pants I wore a few days ago (here)... When I look at this outfit now, it reminds me on a hunter .... Hahaha, maybe this is not that wrong. Going on a flea market means treasure hunt to me.

This is what I wore last sunday to stroll over the flea market around the corner ... probably 90s does 40s dress: colours/kleidermarkt // tights: C&A (yes, they have a run ... grrrrh) // shoes: Deichmann // 50s wicker purse: flea market Boxhagener Platz, Berlin // 90s does 40s straw hat: flea market ... this new to me wicker/leather 50s purse I snapped up the flea market at Arkona Platz, Berlin. Yeah to green details!

I made a strange experience on past sunday ... 
It was the first day of spring this year and I felt like celebrating the nice weather with getting all dolled up for the flea market  ... and I felt happy.  As many other vintage enthusiasts I'm kind of used to that people stop and stare. This sunday it was special ... quite a lot of people (tourists - flea markets here are filled with tourists) started to take photos of me without asking if it is ok. This really made me mad after a while! Probably this is part of the deal when you are the only clown in the circus ... Thanks to the nice french couple who asked nicely if they could take a picture (the were the only ones that asked). Hahaha, it was so strange to pose with strangers - but it made them happy and it was fun.
Now the next weekend is here and we are planning our new flea market visits ... this time I feel like going to an market in the outskirts of Berlin ... means less tourists and less cameras.

The Perfect Pa-Pa-Paaaaa-Pants

Another work outfit ... 70s does 40s shirt: thrifted in the US // marlene pants: H&M // belt: thrifted in the US // shoes: Deichmann // 60s bag: flea market // 50s earclips made from bone: thrifted // vintage bangls: flea markets

Dear readers, I have to announce, I finally found a pair of pants I truly adore! Those are really high waisted, they reach over my bellybutton and I have a ridiculous long upper part of the body. So it is actually hard to find real high waisted pair of pants for my build ... The other perfect thing about those pants:  ... They have a slim waistband (with a hidden elastic band) that fits my tiny waist almost perfectly - but they also have enough room for my wide hips and round back.  Great pants for a comfortable vintage look. They are as comfortable as a skirt and made from a soft cotton mix somthing. The last week I almost lived in them.
I still can't believe that I found them at H&M. I really like to recommend those pants to all those out there, who have problems to find good fitting pants, because of  having an hour glass figure. Hahaha, and they are really fair priced.  Today I got myself another pair of these pants in a clinker brick colour, sadly those are a bit shorter ...
(h&m doesn't pays me a cent for these words...)

Vintage Shopping In Berlin ... Bahar Berlin EdelTrash

(all pictures taken by me)
I is a while since my last post about Vintage Shops in Berlin ... As I moved to the other side of Berlin in the beginning of this year. I have the lucky chance to explore a new area with new vintage shops I never made it to in the past.
Bahar Berlin Edeltrash is not just new to me, the shop got opened in fall 2014. I have to say, I love it there. It's the perfect mix of mainly clothes and accessoiries for ladies and gents mixed with vintage decoration items, lamps and  and nic nac ... The lovely owner of Edeltrash has a good eye for wonderful true vintage pieces from the 20s up to the 70s. But also 'younger' vintage items and well made, fashionable and fun second hand pieces can be found.
When I was there the last time the owner showed me a breathtaking 50s show dancers body/dress made from lace and duchess. Such a wonderful burlesque piece... I wasn't able to take a picture of it, because a girl popped in and took the body right away to the changing room (as I was told later - she took it home). Wow.
I already found me a very special piece there aswell ... the amazing early 40s hat I already posted some days ago.
Berlin Moabit is for sure not an area well known by tourists or might not be the spot in the city hipsters go to ... but Bahar Berlin Edeltrash is truly a reason to visit this part of Berlin! Actually I really think, it is quite beautiful there ... nice Coffee Bars are growing ...
If you are in Berlin make sure not to miss this shop!!!
