Snow White

Something from the new Collection at Boden Clothing. Since we are a far cry from Spiring I thought I try a winter look.

Ein Kleid aus der neuen Kollektion von Boden Clothing. Da der Frühling noch recht weit weg ist, hier ein Winterlook.

Shopping with Miss Kittenheel: Vintage Bling

Fleamarkets around here are a bit tricky in winter – but there is always Ebay to get your vintage fix. These are just brooches I found on Ebay and that I think suit a vintage style.

Flohmärkte sind zu dieser Jahreszeit etwas schwierig – aber es gibt ja immer noch Ebay. Dies hier sind nur Broschen, die ich auf Ebay entdeckt habe und von denen ich meine dass sie zu einem Vintagestil passen.

Im Set 2 1950er Jahre Broschen in Blütenform, endet Montag 0834h

Brosche mit Perlen, bis Montag 1352h

Eine 1950er Fellbrosche, endet Dienstag 1524h

Brosche Ahornblatt, endet Mittwoch 1040h

Brosche Strass-Halbmond, endet Mittwoch 1916h

und zum Abschluss noch zwei schöne Strass-Broschen, endet 12.Januar 2015

#GermanCurves: Mit Glamour ins neue Jahr – Black Sparkles

Today the more traditional NYE outfit. Little black dress and silver sparkling tights plus an appropriate amount of rhinestones. Love the necklace. The location is the still newish sushi and grill restaurant Yumini. Love the over the top decor (especially the chandeliers), the staff is friendly and I am very happy with the food. Not sure what they put into their algae salad but I can’t get enough of it! Even had two inaris, usually I don’t like them, I order them frequently, but I don’t really care about them.

Heute das traditionellere Silvester Outfit. Das kleine Schwarze mit silbern glitzernder Strumpfhose und jeder Menge Strass. Die Kette von Accessorize ist toll – die erinnert mich an die Sissi-Filme. Die habe ich als Kind geliebt! Die Location ist das relative neue Yumini, ein Sushi und Grill-Restaurant hier in Bochum. Ich mag die opulente Einrichtung (besonders die Kronleuchter), das Team ist freundlich und ich bin mit dem Essen mehr als zufrieden. Keine Ahnung was die in ihren Algensalat hineintun, aber ich bekomme davon einfach nicht genug. Gestern hatte ich sogar zwei Inaris – und normalerweise mag ich die nicht sonderlich (ich bestelle sie zwar regelmässig, aber hier sind die toll).

Dress: Marks & Spencer, ca. 2009 (yep, the very same from 2nd Day of Christmas)
Shrug: C&A, ca. 2011, or try wingz
Tights: H+M, currently available and on sale!

Handbag: blush Marabou feathers, a present from friends – not sure where they got it.

#GermanCurves: NYE Golden Girl

The German plus size community #GermanCurves has a challenge today: A Glamorous New Year’s Eve  – Mit Glamour in das neue Jahr!.

I will post another outfit, a safer one. But what could be more glam than a golden brocade coat? Mine is from Lane Bryant, not sure which season. I got it last spring on Ebay.com. I had the sleeves shortened to 3/4 length to give it that 60s vibe. Am very happy that it is tailored. The vintage fur cuffs used to be a scarf I got at my regular bric-a-brac place for 6 EUR! Another friendly seamstress turned them into cuffs. The dress is a cold blush pink, got that in spring, too. Once I go back to my natural blond I will ditch the pink heels with the outfit – but today I like how they match my hair.

Baby, it’s cold outside!

After food and more glorious food, followed by ehm, even more food and some Films, the parents and I went out for a winter walk. Cold and sunny, and just a bit of snow to wet your appetite. Borrowed my mums hiking shoes, but could have easily worn my sturdy 40s style brogues. The parents didn’t want to venture into the woods.
The coat usually has no (fake) fur cuffs. I clipped them on after the office Christmas party, when I wore the cuffs with my red wiggle dress. I quite like the look.

Nach reichlich Essen, gefolgt von mehr leckerem Essen und öhhhh, noch mehr Essen und ein paar Filmen, sind die Eltern und ich heute mal zu einem Winterspaziergang aufgebrochen. Kalt und sonnig war es. Es lag noch Schnee das man Lust auf mehr bekommt. Ich habe mir die Wanderschuhe meiner Ma geliehen, hätte bei den Wegen lässig meine Vintageinspirierten Hochschnürer anziehen können. Die Eltern wollten nicht auf die Waldwege.

Der Mantel hat normalerweise keine (Web-) Pelzmanschetten. Ich habe die nach der Weihnachtsfeier festgesteckt, die waren vorher an meinem roten 50ger Jahre Kleid, waren aber für die Rückfahrt zu unbequem unter dem Mantel und die Clutch zu klein.

Let it snow!

Winter is coming. Though it is still above freezing at the parent’s house, so currently it snows but the white wonder won’t last.

Der Winter kommt! Bei den Eltern ist es noch ein paar Grad über Null. Es schneit zwar schon den ganzen Tag, allerdings bleibt die weiße Pracht nicht liegen.

Adventskalender: Think Pink!

I thought about this for a while – actually once the decision was made to have my hair cut to a bob. And suddenly I really, really wanted pink hair, too – at least once. So I picked this colour – Candy Floss Pink in the shop underneath the hairdresser’s salon.


I wanted something like this:

or look like Helen Mirren

Helen Mirren rocking in Candy Floss Pink!

but somehow – it wasn’t pink enough on me! And no – I didn’t dye my hair white or platinum in the first place.

I wanted it a bit more pink – think a mix of barbie pink and cotton candy. One of my friends suggested I redye it. So I bought Flamingo Pink. Guess I should have read a few tips how to tone it down a bit. But I didn’t. Initially I wanted to meet a few people on the Christmas market – but that plan failed. So in the spur of a moment and just before preparing dinner I dyed my hair…

oooops, that looks strong!

oooops, that looks strong!

…and then I thought, ah, that’ll wash out. It didn’t. Well not tonight. I quite like the result. It is neither subtle nor for the faint of heart. But it is very moi!
