retro blouses

these are my other finds from the fleamarket today: two retro blouses by h&m and a nice black cardigan, with little black flowers made of tiny tiny plasticpearls...

for quite some time i couldn't really decide if i should stop buying clothes second hand, on ebay or at fleamarkets. on the one hand because of, well, i have had bad experiences with those small animals eating up half your wardrobe, and on the other hand, it also is very hard and takes a lot of time and energy to find good quality things for a decent price. but then, also, fleamarkets and thrift stores are so much more interesting, and it is also a lot of fun browsing them. and, finally, shopping second hand is just more environmentally friendly, in german we would say "nachhaltig". and that's a really good point.

























both blouses must be from some older h&m-collections, the are both light blue, though in different shades, and both have black piped seams and black buttons. the one to the left has a print with a small 50s-style lady sitting somewhere in an elegant dress and fine hairdo. the one to the right looks more like a blouse a waitress at a 50s diner would wear, and has a small tag saying "Peachy Keen" on the left side...
