New Hat ...

... i wore my new 50s hat to the indoor flea market on saturday morning.  ... cardi: primark // vintage dress: ebay // belt: primark // boots: ebay // straw bag: flea market // 50s hat: ebay // vintage earrings: gifted ... not pictured: the pettycoat and ski underwear to fight winter cold ...

sadly the flea market wasn't too exciting ... but a boring flea market is better than no flea market.

Office Girl ... With Bavarian Bag

... cardi: primark // late 50s-early 60s dress: ebay // vintage belt: thrifted // vintage boots: ebay // the most amazing bavarian vintage bag: ebay ...

have you ever seen a bag like this? i found this little treasure on ebay. the seller offered it as a piece from 50s/60s. when i first saw the auction i actually couldn't believe this bag would be from this time - but the materials and the way it's made it's totally early 60s.

New Year - New Shoes

this is what i wore on silvester day ... red cardi: primark // top: h&m // vintage skirt: thrifted // vintage petticoat: ebay // belt: came with a skirt // 90s lace-up booties: ebay (just arrived) // vintage bag: ebay // vintage earrings: gifted // rose pendant: flea market ...

on this day we visited some family members, in the end i didn't had enough time left to change my outfit into a fabulous 50s frock ... luckily we celebrated the start of 2013 with lovely friends at their home, having raclette and drinking champaign and red wine. ... and everybody was dressed more casual, so there was no need to change.
and - i wore my new booties. even as being from the early 90s i can pair them quite good with some dresses from the 50s (and they're quite warm and the little heel is quite comfy to my sick foot).

Luck Pig?

prost neujahr! ... happy new year! ... frohes neues ... 
in germany we have several mojos known as symbols for luck. the for-leaf glover, the love bug, the chimney sweeper and the 'glücksschwein'. the bf is american and he didn't knew the pig as a symbol for luck before ... our friends (we spent nye with) and i - didn't knew how to call it in english ... so we called it: 'luck pig' ... a quite german translation but funny ... hahaha ...
here is your little lucky pig, dear readers! i hope, all your dreams will come true!
