Goodbye Stairways ...

this is the last outfit i shot on my beloved stairways some days ago ... top: walmart // vintage shorts: thrifted // vintage belt: thrifted // vintage shoes thrifted // h&m bag: flea market // deadstock vintage head scarf: thrifted in the US // 50s necklace: thrifted in the US ... yesterday we finally moved out.

now we stay a couple of days at my mum's place before we head over to berlin ... today is my birthday. actually i feel quite ok about my age when i look at these pictures above. it's not too bad to turn 36, i suppose.

hopefully i find a new nice photo set at our subletting home ... stay tuned. future is near.

Electric Blue

this is what i wore past sunday, when i visited my best friend and her lovely family ... top: walmart // 50s skirt: simply vintage, portland // vintage belt: flea market // shoes: no name // 40s-50s wicker bag: thrifted // bracelet: thrifted ...

we're so busy with packing our stuff for the upcoming move. no proper time to meet friends to say goodbye, no time for reading blogs ... i had to find out, even if you leave a town you never fell in love with, in the end it's sad to leave it behind.
on saturday we want to sell tons of clothes (mostly high street fashion - less vintage), fashion and art books, some collectibles on the local flea market. we really need to get rid of a lot of things ...

Country Red

these days during the move i don't have much time to wear a nice skirt ... top: walmart // vintagesquare dance skirt: made in berlin store // straw belt: flea market // vintage sandals: thrifted // wicker bag: flea market // bamboo bangles: from several thrift and antique stores in the US ... this outfit makes me wanna have a party on the country side ... (i'm tiered of carrying boxes in our storage room.)

Living In A Colourful Box

... just 10 days left ... then i have to find a new place to take outfit pictures ... blouse: primark // shorts: thrifted // vintage belt: flea market // vintage sandals: thrifted // bag: flea market / bangles: flea market ... surprise, wear shorts! when you do all the packing, taking apart my closet and crawling on the floor for collecting screws, it's better to wear pants/shorts than a skirt. most of my dresses are already packed anyhow...

my dresses and skirts i take with me to berlin sit already in a clothes-box. those dresses that won't come with me till we have found our own place, are sitting in the other box. ... all the other clothes (that aren't dresses) sit in normal boxes ... boxes, boxes. boxes ... boxes.

Twist And Shout

this outfit post is filled with three new amazing pieces i found during the last two months ... 50s blouse: vintage yardsale // 50s cotton skirt: simply vintage shop, portland (check out etsy, if you can't visit the cute shop in person) // vintage belt: flea market // shoes: new yorker (i own them for years now) // early 60s wicker bag: flea market ... this outfit makes me twist and shout.

Carry Me Home



 ... the past few weeks, especially the days after i returned back home from the US, i was more than lucky to find some amazing vintage bags ... top to bottom: black and white synthetic wicker bag from the early 60s, made in hong kong: flea market // floral tapestry bag: found at the antique mall in puyallap washington state // 50s bag with bamboo handle: vintage yard sale // early 50s wicker bag with metal handle: thrift store around the corner // midnight blue late 50s-early 60s bag: thrifted ... same shop as the wicker bag. ... for all bags together i spent almost 28€. 

actually i was a little sad that i didn't got my hands on one of the amazing 40s-50s-early 60s wicker bags i saw in the states. everytime i fell in love with a bag i was so shocked about the high range that i didn't got them (and every time i decided, i not to care about the money but wanting the bag, i wasn't able to go back to the shop ... sniff, goodbye cute 50s strawberry bag) ... the most affordable priced bag next to the tapestry bag was 24 dollars. so i did quite good with my mostly german vintage finds.

today i felt quite lucky when i found 3 new vintage suitcases on the flea market. they are perfect to store my old hats or bags until they move to our new home ... this is the last month we spent in this town.
