As already mentioned on my Twitter channel, I lately got these beautiful and insanely comfortable shoes by Sonia Rykiel. I probably got 60 or 70% off but there´re still pretty expensive. Although my love for them is growing every day…What should I do??

Als ich gestern in der Mittagspause den Stand der „Dita von Teese“-LE für Artdeco erblickte, war es um mich geschehen. Obwohl ich mir sogar vorgenommen hatte diesmal vernünftig zu bleiben, ließ ich mich dazu hinreißen das hübsche Puder-Case und einen hellen, Pfirsich farbenen Highlighter mitzunehmen. Die Textur von letzterem ist übrigens unglaublich samtig, das Puder ist außerdem sehr gut pigmentiert. Ich kann´s kaum erwarten es auszuprobieren!

Although I´ve told myself to stay strong and reasonable, I couln´t resist to buy two items of the „Dita von Teese for Artdeco“-Edition, as I saw it yesterday. I bought a powder case and a light peachy highlighter, which feels adorably smooth and nice and is very well pigmented. Can´t wait to try it out!

In den 40er Jahren trugen die Damen allerlei Haaraccessoires: Bandanas, Turbane und auch Haarnetze gehörten damals zum Styling-Alltag und verschönerten die Häupter trotz schmaler Budgets und kaum verfügbarer Konsumartikel. Tagsüber zur Arbeit getragen, wussten die Frauen damals ihre Snoods und Tücher mit wenigen Griffen und Kniffen auch in ausgehtauglichen Haarschmuck zu verwandeln.

Gerade im Sommer, gehört Haarschmuck bei mir ja einfach immer dazu. Während ich mit Bandanas, schmalen, breiten, bunten und dezenten Tüchern, Blumen und Schleifen in zahlreichen Farbnuancen mehr als gut versorgt bin, habe ich jedoch nun gemerkt: Mir fehlt ein Snood! Doch genau die sind gar nicht so leicht zu finden!

Die schönsten Snoods, die ich bisher gefunden habe, sind von „Cherries and Anchors“, die die hübschen Netz authentisch nach nähen und das auch noch zu fairen Preisen. Leider sitzen die jedoch in den Staaten, was die Versandkosten unverhältnismäßig zu den Produktkosten gestaltet.

Hat jemand vielleicht einen heißen Tipp für mich?

In the 40s women wore a lot of different hair-accessories: bandanas, turbans and of course snoods were part of the daily styling-routine back then. While in daytime these items have been simply practical and protective, the ladies knew how to turn their scarfs and snoods quickly into elegant and glamurous accessories for the evening, aswell.

Especially in summetime I love hairaccessoires in all styles. Flowers, bows, scarfs, bandanas: All of them are fix parts of my summer outfits and I can tell, I got almost one for every colour in this world… BUT as I realized today I still got one thing missing in my collection of hair-accessories: The snood!

I found a lovely company named „Cherries and Anchors“ that makes authentic 40s snoods, but unfortunatelly they´re based in the States so the shippingcosts are simply too expensive in relation to the actual price of a snood. ARGH! So if you guys can recommend some place where I can found them in Europe I´ll be more then gratefull!

I´m so excited! This May my mom and I will be leaving our homes and will fly to a nice wellness hotel at Mallorca for a week. There´re two main reasons why I´m totally freaking out about this (in a positive way of course!):

 First: I think the last time I saw the sea was four years ago and as I was born near the sea (Danzig) that´s way too long for my nature!!!

Second: I never spent a holiday with my mom alone and since we don´t live in the same cities for almost three years, I´m really looking forward to it!

And I wouldn´t be me if I wouldn´t start to scan my whole wardrobe and research nice beauty- musthaves for the holidays already! Do you guys have any advices for me?

Although summer is damn late this year, I´m starting to find more and more beautiful fashion items that make me dream of high temperatures, warm sun and long days. Just like these peeptoes from Sonia by Sonia Rykiel! They are SO cute…. only the price makes me sweat without any summer-feeling … I found them here.

Have yo already started to fill up you spring/summer wardrobe?

So finally I managed to make some pictures of myself again, after a pretty long time. I apologize once again and  promise to show up with my face more frequently again from now on:)

Anyways, this is it! My hair is copper-red again, dolled up with a large blonde highlight at the right sight, which looks great on vintage hairstyles!

Right now I wear my bangs like this because I´m thinking of letting them grow again… An endless fight between Betty-Bangs and all other cool vintage hairstyles 🙂

Although I always thought black would be my „home“-colour, I´m so much happier with the copper hair! Hope you like it, too….

P.S.: This is my new cardi from „Lucky 13“ I bought one week ago. It has a huge lady-skull on the back with big hair and flowers in it – just how I like it! Unfortunately aaaall pictures I took turned out bad..ARGH!
