Berlin Fashion Week – Toast&Jam Vintage Fashion Fair and Show

The Toast & Jam vintage fashion fair and show was one of the events I was looking forward to most. Now guess why! Right, because it’s VINTAGE fashion! I do have a thing for all things, vintage, old, very old..and Stone Age. Haha. No, but I love old stuff because I have the feeling there’s a great story behind every old dress, shoe etc. And of course they look nice! There were so many amazingly styled and dressed people at the vintage fair, I even felt underdressed.

With exhibitors such as Etsy, Veist Kleidergeschichten, Mayflower Vintage, Class of Berlin and Memory Vintage, everyone could find something to buy.

The show was the best at the whole Fashion Week in my opinion.

I love the shoes in the picture above!

Again: Great shoes!

Red Classic Cambridge Satchel

I would lie if I said I needed a new bag, with over 20 lovely eye candy bags patiently waiting in my room to be used. But when I saw this great vintage style bag I simply couldn’t resist (wait, I have said that before about other bags…). Not only does it have a great ‘vintage red’ colour, but my initials in gold letters on it as well! It arrived at my house Tuesday morning, thanks to FedEx, and I’ve used it every day since then. I already got a lot of compliments on it and a friend of me even wanted to buy it from me. Well, she’ll have to order her own bag, because this cute bag is mine! I’ll make sure to take it with me when I go to its ‘birthplace’ Cambridge this summer. Cambridge satchels have been featured on many great blogs, like Fashionista, The Cherry Blossom Girl and, most recently, Style on The Couch.

Deep In The Woods

I have found that long walks in the woods, especially on sunny days in spring, are very liberating. Flowers and trees blossom everywhere and you can hear birds singing. A forest is a magical place where you can think and relax. Unfortunately I don’t often have time to be there.

It’s tea time!

A Camden Town Appreciation Post

It’s crowded with tourists, it’s busy and it’s full of stuff no one really needs…and still it’s one of the places in London I love most! Though it is crowded, especially on weekends, it’s not the same as Central London. People aren’t just standing in the way, taking photos of some old buildings while busy Londoners are trying to push past them. It’s kind of a world of its own. A world of vintage, shabby chic and all things weird and cute, basically all things I love. I come here not only for shopping, but also if I just need a place where I can think. I like to sit by the canal with a cupcake from Mimi’s Cupcakes, a Chaboba Bubble Tea or a Caramel donut and watch the boats flow by. I think it’s a real pity that you’re not allowed to take any photos in most of the shops. There are so many things I’d love to blog about in Camden, especially all the cute dresses, coats, hair bows etc! Fortunately I sometimes didn’t see the little ‘No photos’ sign and could take a few photos. The pictures above show AllSaints, one of those cute little stores, the famous ‘Camden Lock’ and the colourful houses.
