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?

Happy Weekend to you !

I was so amazed by Jenny Packham´s Fall/Winter Collection for 2012/13 at New York Fashion Week. She managed to take the most typical and charming elements of the  American 40s (like the hairstyle, the shoulders and the v-neck robes), mixed it with almost architectural details and cuts up to an elegant, feminin, still modern and chic look. I´m in love!

P.S.:I think I´m slowly coming back to my „old habbits“. I really enjoy my new job, I have new haicolor (again, I know!) and I guess I´ll be starting to do more for this place here again:) Today I´m going to shop at the „Boutiki“ in Kreuzberg and cook some delicious pasta for me and my love… What are your plans for the Weekend?

After I spent the holidays eating, eating and eating, I´m starting to bother about my outfit for New Years Eve….:D It´s this one. It´s from Hell Bunny and I really like it. But it´s fitting really tight…no stretch, no place for extra Christmas-belly…

Now that I´m somehow still in a strange dreamy Christmas mood, I´m thinking of buying this „Joy“ dress fron Lena Hoschek as an alternative… Like all Lena Hoschek creations it´s very elegant and charming. AND I think it´s a little bit more stretchy at the belly-area:D Of course I can´t afford it, but hey, it´s for New Years Eve (if it comes quick enough) and you get 30% off right now:) And if it comes too late I still can wear it at Fashion Week…

What do you think?
