these are some more finds from last weeks flea markets i went to. ... this time i was lucky again to find a stall with some special vintage jewelery from the 30s-80s. the seller's parents had closed their jewelery shop more then 10 years ago, now she was selling the total left overs ... from her i got the flying bird brooch (early 50s), the sterling silver bow brooch from the early 40s and (also from the 50s) the black and gold leaves and the roses brooch ... later i came back with my left over money and got these 3 powder boxes (first picture). the seller told me, these must be from the late 30s ... everything is deadstock. oh, the anchor pendant i already wore here i got from her aswell. i was so happy when i found the asian 50s wicker jewelery box to bring all the precious finds home savely.
... oh and i forgot to picture the tea time songbook with chansons and operetta music i got from her aswell. all in all i spent 35 € on all the things from her ...

this is what i wore to work yesterday ... new glasses: eyes+more // cardi: primark // early 60s dress: ebay // belt: from istanbul // handmade petticoat:ebay // tights: c&a // straw clutch: flea market // vintage shoes: flea market ...
people say: if there is a change in women's life, they change their hair ... i change my glasses. a good friend told me about a special offer from an optical store: 3 specs for 250€. usually i spend the same amount of money on just one pair. how great, i was able to pick them up the same day i ordered them. ... but i still have to wait for the sunglasses.

... this 50s look was far too much for some co-workers ... cardi: h&m // 50s blouse: ebay // 50s skirt: ebay // vintage belt: came with a dress // vintage shoes: flea market // vintage bag: thrifted // vintage bangle: thrifted ...
some of my co-workers weren't even able to listen to what i said, when i talked to them the day i wore this outfit ... they were just starring at my hair, the rolls and the puffy skirt ... some things i wanted them to do aren't still done (this was some day last week) ... and for sure they don't remember ... they still wonder why i wear silly clothes and strange hair styles ... and not jeans and sporty shoes.
but yeah, this is my last month at this work place .... then i have to look for new people to scare with vintage fashion. hehehe.
