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...

I visited Madrid many years with my mother and a girlfirend ago and we all loved it, in fact we also went to see a Flamenco show. I have a passion for flamenco, I took lessons , I love to play the castanets.
