The Poodle In Me

... T-Shirt: Primark // 50s skirt: Pick & Weight (something like that), Berlin // clogs: flea market // 50s purse: eBay // 50s-60s brooch: flea market // probably bakelite bangles: one from a flea market, the other one from eBay (both years ago) ...

This is what I wore weeks agon on Mother's Day. My Mum was visiting us and we went out to have dumplings!
That day I was playing around with a new setting lotion/spray and I was really afraid to brush the curls too much ... so I ended up with this quite poodle-ish look. Doesn't this look like the curly ears of a poodle? (Ok, probably I picked out the pictures that doesn't make me look like a curly dog.)
I'm still not too happy with the new lotion - but the old setting lotion totally changed my hair texture after using it more frequently for a while. Suddenly my awesome dry hair (yes, I like that) turned into super soft and greasy baby fluff hair. I felt absolute alianated by it!!! It is still not really back to it's old form but it is much better.

Vintage Dust

I wore this already a little while ago ... early 50s dress: Mauerpark Flea Market Berlin // vintage belt: thrifted, years ago // swedish hasbeens: flowmarkt, Berlin // 50s plastic wicker purse: flea market, years ago // 50s straw tilt hat: Arcona Platz Flea Market Berlin ... 

Some weeks ago I picked up this dress  and hat on the same flea market sunday (but from thwo different markets) ... they go perfectly together!!!! 
Sadly the dress is in such a bad condition, that I will be probably able to wear it just another two or three times. I got it for 3€ - means, if I can wear it another two times before it turns to lovely vintage dust, I shouldn't be sad.
What do you do with dresses, that turn into something unwearable?!

A Little Living Room ...

The pink sofa corner ... The man found and bought it right away after we singed the contract for the flat! My beloved atomic 70s lamp doesn't fit in perfectly but it's the best and sefest place for it right now ...
Yes, there is one door missing in the hutch named 'The Bitch'. After living in one room for over 50 years she got a little mad with us, that she had to move so much during the past three years. I have to find some special screws to put the door back in ...
The collection of vintage suitcases, carrying vintage goods ... the turquoise umbrella is actually a lamp from the 30s that needs some new cables to not burn down the house ...
A couple of week ago it happened, that I suddenly turned the camera away from the mannequin modelling  dress for my Etsy Shop, to take some pictures from our living room. surprise, it was pretty tiedy that day. As you can see, some walls are still quite white and empty ... but some things take a while - and the decoration of a vintage flat grows slowly by finding he perfect pieces.
Maybe soon there will be some pictures from the other wall of the room ...

Bleh! Running Out Of Ideas ...

Bleh! ... I'm truly running out of ideas for blogpost headlines ... 70s does 30s-40s dress: eBay // vintage belt: thrifted // shoes: Deichmann // 40s-50s wicker purse: flea market // necklace/pendant: hand me down ...

This 70s dress does a great job as a late 30s early 40s dress. I am totally amazed by it's vintage-y beauty. Sadly it's condition is a little bit like of a true early 40s dress ... hahaha. For sure I will be able to wear it several times - as long as I don't gain wight. Yes, it is tiny aswell. So it is the perfect dress for the office - not for drinking beer all night.

Christmas Can Be Everyday

Some weeks ago I found myself being announced as the lucky winner of an give away over at The Curious Professorz blog! What a surprise - normally I never win anything!
Lucky me was now able to find me some lovely treasures at Jessica's wonderful Etsy Shop Chronically Vintage. It really took me some ridiculous time to choose MY treasures out of her beautiful collection of vintage jewelery and accssoires. 
As you know me, I buy a lot of vintage jewelery on flea markets ... So I wanted the Etsy giveaway purchases to be something special  - special additions to my collection of vintage ric and rac.
So I decided to go with some chic sets, that are special but not too bold to go with me to officeland ...
oh, and I am so over the top happy with what  I found at Jessica's shop and what she sent me.
I really adore the carved 50s rose set (necklace and ear screws) and he 50s orchid set (big brooch and ear scews). They are really fantastic! ...And I almost can't wait for fall to wear the fun oak/fall leaves pin (ok, no, I never wait for fall to arrive, but this pin will make it easier on my when fall arrives.)
So, what is not pictured in the photos above are all the little surprises that were added to the box ... for sure you will see them soon.
Thank you so much Ladies (Jessica and The Professor) for this wonderful giveaway! When I unpacked the lovely packed boxes it almost felt like Christmas!!!

... this is what I wore the following morning to visti the flea market ... vintage square dance dress: flea market // belt: flea market //  cowboy boots: flea market // vintage purse: flea market // bakelite bracelets: eBay ...

I am so far behind with posting outfits here on the blog ... well, but I'm still posting. 
Don't you have the feeling that Instagram is slowly killing the blogworld? I find more and more blogs vanishing or abandoned ... but I'm happy to find these people later on Instagram ...
How do you feel about reading and writing blogs? Do you prefer Instagram?
