Bright Young Twins Bewilder Berlin: Take 2


Heidi-ho,
So today I'm bringing you the second lot of the Berlin photos. I'm gonna call it 'Take 2' as its a mix of week 2 and 3. In week 3/4 Erika came and we all got a bit camera happy. Seriously, I've spent two hours uploading photos from four different outputs and that means that the posts aren't completely stylistically coherent. 

I'm gonna start off with these pictures that Harriett took of me on a night out, I think we ended up at Neu Bar this night.

Lady H snapped and edited all of these. I really love them.

These are my fabulous Office shoes which didn't make it back home with me. I almost cried when they went missing from my suitcase. I'm also wearing a 60s dress from Beyond retro, tights (which I like to call fashionable leprosy tights) from Primark and socks from H&M.

A few days after this we got taken on a picnic with some Danish boys that we met at 8mm. They took us hiking up a mountain in South Berlin where you can see the whole of the city.

In Kreuzburg, theres a vegetarian/vegan place called 'Yellow Sunshine' which Harriett took me to. It was so amazing.

Here's what I look like with my hair set with a fringe and a miserable face. 

We also went to the Berlinische gallerie to get inspired by art and shit.

We managed to blag ourselves a press pass, we were very smug. Harriett's wearing a fabulous silk blouse she bought in Maurpark.

Really amazing work by Ellen Gallagher in 1965 who reconstructed advertisements aimed at black women in order to demonstrate how they play on racial insecurities.

Blouse from Maurpark, hat from Lewes, various silk flowers, silk slip from Beyond Retro and victorian style boots from Rokit.

The light was beautiful on this day. Harriett wore silks and chiffons with amazing edwardian style vintage snake skin boots that she bought at a flea market.

P.s. Me and Harriett are missing Berlin a lot, we're currently looking for cheap German lessons incase we'll end up living there for longer. If anyone has any ideas how we could learn, get in touch, maybe you're German and want to learn how to speak English better. As always email brightyoungtwins@hotmail.co.uk .

  1. Lovely photos, Harriets's outfit is so lovely and ethereal. The sort of thing I used to flap around in in my own youth, have tamed it down a bit, I'm waiting until I can become quite old to pull it out again!

  8. You're both looking so special and wonderful. I would like to be able to wear Harriet's look, but unfortunately pastel colours don't look good on me cause I have red hair, freckles and my skin is a little bit yellowy. So I have to go for the warm autumnal colours that I love to death. But it would be nice to change colours sometimes. Hugs from the freckled Miss Maple

  9. Too much to love in this post. Aimee, loving you in the 60's dress and as I have said before the picture of you with the fringe is HOT! Harriett I am quiet literally drooling over that Silk blouse. All your outfits are sooo beautiful. That picture of the lady with the dog is amazing. Can't Sophie teach you the Deutsch?
