mexican supper

After our exhausting spring-cleaning we really needed a propper supper - time for some heavy mexican food and my new skirt. We went to the mexican snack bar CHAPARRO. Highly recommended, it´s yummy and full of cool kitsch.

silk hairflower: crafts shop
skull necklace: DIY
cardi: old H&M
confetti bangle: 50s vintage, etsy

 straw bag: 50s vintage, etsy

 satin skirt: 50s vintage, vintage shop Kleidermarkt

I can´t get enough from the old sequins and how good they are conserved and those soft laces, 
which came out so white again after cleaning... wish you all a week full of glittery moments!

Hola Madrid!

This year I celebrated my birthday with my best friend in the beautiful baroque town of Madrid. 
So much fun: We loved all the colourful details of the architecture and went vintage shopping - of course.

My leopard shopping bag is full of 50s goodies I will show in upcoming posts.

This mexican restaurant was so cool and the food delicious.

We enjoyed a Flamenco show on our first evening and a trashy dragshow on the second one. 
I felt like living in an Almodovar movie.

After all that shopping and clubbing it was time for an art-marathon. 
Beside the huge Prado I liked the Modern Art section of the Carmen Thyssen-Bornemisza Collection the most.

While strolling I found this incredible shop called Burlesque: full of wigs and professional make up.
 I came out with another shopping bag full of fake lashes and brushes - happy me.

Sadly the weather was just grey and cold. Time for more nightclubbing.

hairflower: real carnation, present from a Flamenco dancer
dress: Folter clothing, present from Honey
cardigan: Vintage Vixen
shoes: Molly Holly

In the Charada Club we listened to the dark ballads of the super beautiful Chrysta Bell.

Leaving you with another typical detail of Madrid...

glitter in the powder room

The other day a friend and I visited a Burlesque show in the Bassy Club and she made some pics of me in the Ladies' lavatory - not the most glamourous location, I know. But my beloved 50s cocktail jacket, found on a fleamarket and my 6-inch-high beehive was worth it.

The jacket is so classic: made of crêpe, bat sleeves, a nipped in waist and very nice embroidery with little black jet pearls.

Pockets with scallop! 

While we powder our noses, let´s have a closer look at my make up: I used Kryolan pro-products only, padded the pink glitter on the lids just with an eyeshadow base, draw a winged liner and put tons of mascara on my natural lashes to get that spidery look - it´s not a faux pas anymore - it´s en vogue!

The huge pink glitter flower in my hair is a souvenir from fabulous Las Vegas!

The show girls were so hot, that I had to cool down myself a bit.

I hailed a taxi in my vintage Sergio Rossi high heels and felt very happy to live in a town
where you can enjoy a great show with international acts on a common wednesday.

Eddie and me


Yesterday was a good day: Eddie Spaghetti was in town! 
With the SUPERSUCKERS he played a super great show in the legandary club "SO 36"  in Kreuzberg
and signed the new record.

 After that we could talk a bit and made a fan pic. How stupid starstucked I look... but isn't he damned sexy? 
A broad-shouldered, witty, bearded r´n´r-bass player with a big heart - my kind of a man. (Like honey is.)

Eddie Spaghetti did funtastique solo country records. Check my fav song out:

But what did I wear?

hairband: asos
pink bra: blush
 (Ladies, have a look at this Berlin-based brand - the quality is excellent and they have some vintage inspired designs!)
dress: present from a friend, guess it´s from the 80s
belt: 50s vintage
cowboy boots: Buffalo
 bag: 60s vintage

While posing with the record, I tryed to look a bit "edgy"... ha ha ha

Nothing is better then a blood cooking real loud punkrock show to feel alive again.
 And here's a little quest: Do you find me in the crowd on this pic Eddie took from stage?

valentine's day

First of all, I hope you had a great Valentine's Day with your loved ones. I had it, started with baking for honey and friends: lemon muffins and a red velvet cake.  So yummy...

„Here's looking at you, Kid!“

After all the sugar we went clubbing. I chose a nautical themed outfit, because I have a soft spot for sailors, when it comes to romantic. Time for my kid's souvenir sailor felt hat from - I guess - the 50s.

The hat is from my granny and really well made. It´s a souvenir from the "Hamburg-Amerika"-line and it has those cool ribbons in the back.

shirt: Tom Tailor
pants: Vivien of Holloway
bag: 60s vintage, fleamarket find
glass heart pendant: 50s vintage, my mum's

While baking I got a little cut and covered it with an ancor plaster, of course. I´m a slave to the details.

Honey had made me a Valentine's Day present years ago: those lovely key-for-my heart-clip-ons from the 40s. So I always wear them on that special day and this year I teamed them with other 40s marcasite goodies from my collection.

Bye bye for so long and a special kiss to all the singles out there: love will find you!
