Don’t say you don’t like it before you’ve tried it


It’s cold in Hannover these days, very cold. No, I’m kidding, today was pretty fine, especially sitting on a heap of dried staw which not too long ago presented itself as a juicy green hillside. We’re in desperate need of more rain, really true!

If anybody asked me about summer essentials, he’d get one clear answer, and you might have noticed already, judging by my last three outfits: cute, short, girly, vintage or not, dresses. I don’t walk out the house without a dress these days and it’s so beautiful.
This one I found on ebay for a handful of Euros. When our relationship started, when I unwrapped it from it’s packaging and held it in my hands, it was long, almost to the ground, and I could smell the 1970s in it, originally. I was in love. But I couldn’t do it. I love short flapper dresses, so our relationship had to survive a test. A scissors-test to be precise, and it did. Now our love has grown even, and when the temperature rises even more again, I’ll be happy to wear my new love even without tights and knee-socks. Yes!

PS.: The new header shows a photo, believe it or not. It’s a picture taken this afternoon, of the marvellously blue sky in Hannover. I’m in love, did I mention it?

PPS.: I made this rose-flower-ring today, isn’t it lovely? I just took a fabric-flower and glued it to an old ring, I figured I’d be nice to wear with floral tights that also show white roses :)
