VINTAGE DIVA BY TOPVINTAGE

What a day, what a location, what a wonderful brand and a gorgeous team!

We had the best time in the Netherlans, shooting for the new brand of top vintage - VINTAGE DIVA! Classy, sophisticated, divine.

We had a stay at the International Butler Academy, a former monastery that was founded 1892.

Red velvet, big chandeliers, golden antique interior and Butlers with white gloves just to mention a few details of this awesome day!

And i had the pleasure to shoot with Vintage Vandal, Immodesty Blaize and my lovely Vanessa Frankenstein <3

Behind the camera the funniest guy around - Yuribert from Yosoy Video - all in all you can imagine the fun, amazement and great work we had :)

 

Here are some bts - and make sure to visit the new website of Vintage Diva! Launched on March 10th

WHAT KATIE DID

I had the pleasure to wear a full set of beautiful peachy What Katie Did Lingerie a few weeks ago and the feeling when wearing this was something special - it's not only that their stuff looks good when getting undressed ;) the feeling of old Hollywood Glamour is coming instantly!

Have a look!

 

The Bra and matching knickers & slip is here available

 

I owe a while ago the Morticia Corset which is my favorite one under tight dresses and some of their stockings i really like to wear in summer. The Waspie is another item i have since some months and it gives a nice shape, tightens the tummy and feels just comfortable under whatever you wear.

The quality of all their stuff is great, the shapes are unique and especially the corsets are worth their price.

GOING FOXY!

Oh My! I know The House of Foxy for such a long time and finally i have one of these fantastic treasures to call my own. Midnight blue, stretchy fabric that shapes and fits like a second skin, a wonderful deep brocade pattern and this sarong cut make this dress a very festive one.

 

About The House of Foxy - it's a british brand of vintage womenswear, that manufactures in Britain.

You'll find 20s to 60s stuff from UK size 8-24!

Their mission is to bring beautiful, demure and glamorous clothing to the world inspired by a truly golden era. 

 

 

 

 

What House of Foxy writes about this dress:

"In homage to screen siren, Rita Hayworth..." "40s style evening/ cocktail dress in stunning midnight blue silky brocade..."

 

Nothing to say more - it's a comfortable one and especially if you have a little tummy you'll love it cause it hides anything because of the sarong, what a tricky one!

And the quality is gorgeous <3

  

 

 

I'm wearing a UK 10 - the stretchy fabric hugs each curve.

Combined it with a matching flower piece from Sophisticated Lady Hair Flowers and Luxulite Earrings.

FESTIVE ALLIANCE PART 1

The most wonderful time of the year..... the christmas markets have opened  their gates so it's official: the sparkling and festive season starts.

Can't wait to stroll around the cosy decorated little blockhouses on the Hamburg Rathaus area, have the first gingerbread, glogg and burnt almonds, i just can smell them :D

So i was looking for some festive styles to celebrate with family and friends my birthday, christmas and new years eve. From golden girl to the perfect red dress and for the sparkling new years eve a glamorous navy blue gown.

Paired with matching jewelry and headpieces and of course matching shoes and purse.

 

 

I found my birthday dress at Zoe Vine, a london based designer of vintage style clothing for women.

During the shoots with TopVintage where i worn the first ones from Zoe Vine i fell in love with this golden girl dress called RITA.

It's a draped sleeve 40s inspired dress that gives you instant Hollywood Glamour and those sleeves are outstanding!

The fabric is a high quality Polyester Mix, with a gorgeous golden glow!

  

 

 

For the perfect accessories i choose the  50s inspired dangly black and golden earings  and matching brooch from Luxulite and a golden flower comb from Sophisticated Lady Hairflowers. The red springolators from Long Gone Shoes and my Dorset Rex Metal Purse complete my festive outfit.

 

 

Dress: Zoe Vine 

Jewelry: Luxulite

Flower Comb: Sophisticated Lady Hair Flowers

Shoes: Long Gone Shoes

 

 

The red suede heels from Long Gone Shoes are extremely comfortable and easy to slip in.

The spanish brand produces exclusive shoes with love to the finest details. The special thing on this type of shoe is the "springolator" under the arch that holds the shoe in place so it won't slip off!

The wonderful red flowers can be clipped on or off so it's really a versatile shoe that has the perfect festive touch.

THE HALLHUBER + MISS CANDYFLOSS COMBO AGAIN!

As you can see i'm totally addicted to the Hallhuber sweaters at this time :)

Quality, colors, fitting - that's what it's all about if you want to have a little longer fun with perfect shaped garments like these classics. 

Simple, turtlenecked wool sweater and when worn with a black bra even niftier cause the fabric is so thin you can surmise it... ♥

 

Paired again with a gorgeous pencilskirt from Miss Candyfloss, forest green is such a perfect autumn color.

They have a nice cut but most of all the fabric never crumpled when sitting  down for a long time, in my opinion very important to look classy (imagine those bad wrinkles, i don't like them ^-^!)

 

The brooch is a knitted one i own together with my very first vintage inspired dress, many years ago.... soon on this blog.

GOLDEN SPARKLE

Lurex golden and cream sweater, combined with a bright red swing skirt and added some wildlife spirit.

These days when the leaves are fallen and the streets going more and more gray those colors give me cosy and warm feeling, especially in combination with leopard print, that i love when it's just a simple detail like a scarf, belt or beret.

COSY TEAL & AFTERNOON AT THE SEA

Just relaxing at the  sea  with our dogs and watch the last birds going to their warmer destinations, the air is full of lovely autumn scents, some leaves are still on their branch.

It's the time of year to calm down and take life a bit slower.

I need those days and of course soft and cosy stuff to wear like this lightweight yet warm wool sweater in a beautiful rich teal.

It's from Hallhuber, Link below. They have lots of nice autumn stuff so make sure to visit their page.

LINGERIE DE PEAU

These airport duty free stores are much to tempting!

Every time i'm at the airport in Hamburg or anywhere else i can't stay away from all these bottles and jars that promise perfection, wonders and instant glamour.

Foolish me but once in a while a lucky me, like this time i found the Guerlain Lingerie De Peau Make Up .

I don't like those thick paste of color that doesn't look that perfect on my skin as on those photoshoped advertisings but this time.... (to be honest i use a bit of photoshop on my pictures too)

This time it's different, a perfect mixture of Dior Nude Air (another lucky buy at the airport) that i love because it's so lightweight and Estee Lauder Double Wear that has a perfect coverage  - it was nearly melting into my skin, gave her a lovely glow and felt perfect!

With my oily skin it's not that easy to find something that works well with but i'm happy!

Fixed with my beloved High Definition Loose Powder from Make Up Forever it's my actual secret weapon (i guess now not longer) to look my best on pictures but in reality too.

If you're at the airport the next time go for it, i've saved 10€.

The bronzer is Guerlain Number 2 - for blondes (i'm an undercover one) and that's a great one instead of Rouge, it has a nice neutral brown tone, for all those warm autumn colors on sweaters and dresses.

 

 

My OOTD (although i'm not that big  fan of animal prints anymore) was a Hallhuber Sweater and a Dovima by Pretty Dress Company Skirt, the brooch is an older one i got from Erstwilder, these Resin cuties are a good alternative to petite true vintage ones when i like it much more bolder.

Sweater: Hallhuber

Skirt: Dovima by Prett Dress

Brooch: Erstwilder

40S CARNIVAL GLASS PURSE

OH MY GOODNESS - THE etsy found ever in my life!

Full beaded 40s carnival glass purse with caramel lucite lid. 

First time i saw it i thought  "what a shape, what a color" and i never heard about carnival glass before. But it was love at first sight and it fits more than perfect to one of my favorite shaped vintage dresses - asian style, high slit, blue velvet....

Detailed: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carnival_glass

Dress is etsy too, jewelry is Bijou Brigitte (german brand, sometimes with fantastic vintage inspired stuff!)

A DAY WITH TOPVINTAGE

Being in the netherlands at TopVintage is always fun!

Meeting funny, creative and warmhearted people that love their job for the biggest vintage online shop in Europe! It's like a big family.

This time we had a fantastic and dreamy location, Rolduc Abbey, 12th century, an old library, mint colored walls, lush chandeliers, thousands of old books.

My sweetest Vanessa Frankenstein and i felt so charmed.

Here are some behind the scenes for the upcoming  website pictures.
