Blood and Roses



I wore this dress end of July, the day before my birthday .... 1950s dress: Resales Store // vintage belt: thrifted // shoes: flea market // 50s wickerpurse: thrifted in the US ...

I wear this dress rarely, because it's a bitch (sorry), if it comes to washing. The colour bleeds. 
Just yesterday I had to give it a soak and I did my best. Ice cold water, soap just on the stain  - caused by a belt I wore with it a while ago - and underarm erea ... I was so excited when I saw that the water stayed clear, when I checked on it.
Shock, when I lifted the dress out of the water, a waterfall of blood red water rushed down from the rose boarder of the skirt. Me: Yelling words I don't remember! But right away I turned on the cold water and let it run over the affected parts. Sweat from fear was running over my face. 
In the end I suppose, I was lucky, I just found one spot in the rose boarder that is still redish.

Did you had experiences like this while soaking and handwashing your vintage?

Still Alive And Posting ...





A couple of Sundays back I wore this look to the flea market ... 30s-40s dress: Schwarze Truhe Berlin (Today:Vintage Berlin) // vintage leather belt: Arkona Platz Flea Market // Swedish Hasbeens: flea market // 1950s wickerpurse: Alameda Flea Market, CA from @ReneeUnderwood // 30s-40s straw hat: thrifted in Oregon // ear screw ons: antique mall 

Sorry for the absence ... There was and still is so much going on in my life, that diszracts me from reading blogs and writing posts - but I'm still shooting some outfits (not just with the smartphone).
I got a new work contract trough my company and I will work a few more hours a week on a regular base in the future. Aaaand the best thing -  I don't have to share my pay with a temp agency anymore. My pay is my pay. Yay. I feel happy and appreciated - and their will be still enough time left to take care about my tiny Vintage Etsy Shop.

Thank you so much for stopping by!

Day Of 30s Hats




Flea market outfit  ... German 50s blouse: eBay // pants: H&M // bleyle boogie shoes: flea market // 50s wicker purse: Pick&Weight Store // dark brown 1930s straw hat: flea market, Frankfurt ...

This is a look I wore the Sunday before we went on our trip to USA ... 
That day I decided to finally take this 30s straw hat for a spin. It was sitting since Easter in my room and I actually felt like passing it on to someone else ... But this day this hat wa the perfect mix and match. 
And what did I find on the flea market?! Another straw hat from the 30s!

Talking about hats ... Yesterday we returned back to my hubby's family after our trip on the Pacific coast down to San Diego. I was a little shocke when I went through my vintage finds ... mostly hats. No idea thow to bring them home safely - but I can't wait to wear them after a little fix up here and there.
