Today’s Attire : Eureka

Every Saturday there is a flea market
in Frankfurt along the Main River. I had my reservations, as it’s located along the strip in front of all the museums and might attract more tourists than locals.

I was wrong. There’s a strip of tables with women digging through the piles each looking for their suitable treasure. I didn’t have a lot of time to dig, but I was able to snag an interesting sweater dress and a pair of black hammer pants (will show soon). It’s really exciting knowing that there is indeed a source of cheap clothing, I just have to be willing to dig for it.

Anyway… ever since I tried on the Rosenmunn’s dress, I couldn’t get shoulder pads out of my mind. It was difficult to say what exactly draws me to this different silhouette, it’s certainly more masculine, and it takes a little getting used to.

    when you have va-va-voom red lips and heels like those, i don’t think there’s ANY issue of too much masculinity. ;)

    oh yes, fleamarkets are way cheaper in germany then shops - at least since this vintage hype.
    and i agree - the sweater in this combination is not masculine at all!

    I was in that fleamarket in ’97. I bought a fantastic 40′s raincoat and a few things I still wear. I remember it was sooo big. There I saw kebabs for first time too hahahaha! :-D

    The color of the dress with your hair, make-up and earrings - stunning! Looking forward to seeing the hammer pants, I don’t know what those are!

    It’s kind of strange to read that you are now getting to know all these places I used to kind of live in when I was 17…
