winter vintage

at last weekend's fleamarket, i did not only score three very pretty african inspired vintage dresses, i also found a perfect vintage dress for the upcoming fall/winter season. it is woollen (well, i guess there is some acrylic stuff involved as well), very comfortable and has this wonderful dark red colour.


























also, you can make a pretty bow with the collar, and what more would a girl want?

























apropos winter - a couple of weeks back i also found a wonderful vintage winter dirndl at a thrift store:

























it has this fantastic victorian feel to it, with these huge puffy shoulders and wide skirt. and of course it reminds me of the alps, the mountains, things i long for sometimes.










































i also love the silver coloured buttons (they are a good sign for it dating back to the 80s) and the red and black trim at the seams. the dress is a little long though, so i'll shorten it quite a bit (to knee length), and i might need to add some snaps if i don't want to wear an apron with it. anyhow, now i am really looking forward to wearing more dresses this winter!!

Recht hast Du. So ganz ohne Wochenenden ist es auch nicht schön...ich hab das während meines Studiums mal eine Weile gemacht und das war nicht sonderlich kompatibel mit meinen sozialen Interessen;(...jetzt bin ich froh, wenn ich an nur einem Wochenende im Monat mal Dienst habe;)

Jag svarade på din kommentar i min blogg och skrev receptet på morots/zucchini-brödet i mitt svar! Hoppas att det blir bra och smakar gott, återkom gärna med hur det blev! :)

Roligt med vintage-fynd förresten, du verkar duktig på att fynda i second hand och vintagebutiker!
