Those were the fifties!
Once upon a time girls dressed up nicely and were adequately styled as ‘perfect wives’ in a period of technological growth and discovery. As washing machines became popular and after the war it was time to express a new self-assurance to the world nowadays it is hard to catch up with all the restraints and limitations they had in that time – thank god we live in the modern age. But when it comes to style it is no secret to tell that the feminine line on dresses, tiny waists and hourglass shapes belongs to their (re-) inventions – So here is my celebration to this…
For my spring stroll I am wearing this beautiful skirt suit from heart my closet that truly is a blandishing piece you need to admit. I choose terrific brown as most fabrics from the fifties were still dominated by conservative colors like grey, brown or navy (Maybe my next dress will come in a more intense cloth…)
As the 2017 spring again is more like a rampant weather situation in Europe I decided to pose at the botanical garden – For any rain shower you can elude into the conservatory and smell all those teasing flowers

I returned to London thanksgiving this year for a shopping weekend after one decade of not getting my feet on the island. Well, there seriously was some other business and trips so what a pity I could not make it back there earlier. Nevertheless I was really excited and was looking forward to exploring the city. Unfortunately I catched a heavy flew and even took a nap at the airport before entering the plane – it was just a mess.
I really adore this city. It is inspiring and an overcrowded place of all kinds of people you just can’t imagine.
Wearing one of my favorite ensembles, the faux leather skirt and Blouse. Comfy but stylish anyway.

Just found this elderly pic with my beloved feather fascinator.
Put a black screen behind me while sitting in the dining room. We really had a funny afternoon with that shoot 😊
What do you think about it?
Some more impressions from my autumn walk in the park. It was quite windy and cold and I actually start freezing immediately. But hey: pain is temporary, glory is forever?!
Brrrr… it is getting freezin’ cold these days. Nothing better to own than warm shoes to slack over the Christmas market. Got new boots from german brand TAMARIS (Model 25029 – grab yours here). They don’t look so comfy but they really are! Combined them with KUNERT mustard opaque tights and a navy blue dress.
