Hello Ladies and Gentleman, as I am sure a few of our readers are aware, we
are currently one week into our month long stay in the glorious city of Berlin!
We've decided to bring you updates of our trip in 3 instalments to prevent from
barraging you all like an irritating auntie with our holiday photos.
Today we bring to you a round up of images from our first week, it involves
booze, boating and billiards. Oh and vintage, I promise you there is vintage.
On our first day we decided to go out for some lunch, I lost the silk flower
I am pinning on an hour after I bought it : ( what a dum dum.
Aimee does her best Nicole Richie Impersonation.
We ate a Vegan Tempeh Sandwich from Majas Deli
Later we drunk delicious ice green tea and mint drink made for us by our
beautiful host Julia
This was taken when we went to visit the old apartment of our dear friends Anna
and Beau, the gracious hosts of our previous Berlin trips before they sadly returned
to their home land, Canada.
Aimee experienced a brief breakdown, it was all too much.
I bought this 40s photograph and 20s note paper from a local junk
shop for around 2 euro.
This mural of Marlene Dietrich is by a local U-bahn station, we use it as a
meeting point when out gallivanting after dark with friends.
On Saturday we visited our favourite spot in Berlin, the boating lake in
Tiergarten, if you have been with us for a while you might remember it
from our trip last June. The weather and lighting was so beautiful we took a few
snaps of our outfits.
Palazzo Pants & Ballet Pumps - Primark
Edwardian Camisole - Flee Market
Edwardian Table Cloth (worn as shawl) - Lewes
1920s Boater Hat - Lewes
Broach and Ribbon - Charity Shops
1940s House Dress - Beyond Retro
Necklace - Gift from Ex Boyfriend
Vintage Lace Scarf (worn as belt) - Ebay
Mixed Bakelite Bangles - Charity Shops
Silk Flowers - Gift from Harriett
I found a pretty purple flower to press and send to someone I admire.
Then I made Aimee do some posing on a bridge.
This is a building which looks like a big boob.
Now as you can imagine we have spent a fair amount of this trip completely
pickled on prosecco. Darling Julia lent me her rather snazzy flash for my slr
camera, allowing me to live out my fantasy as a cutting edge VICE style
photographer, check out that contrast... SO EDGY!
This is our friend Jesua, he has amazing socks.
Aimee bought this dress from a little junk store that does house clearances
for around 7.50 euros, it has adorable little heart shaped pockets at the waist.
In the evening we went to a billiards hall in Prenzlauer berg to play pool.
Aimee turned out to be quite the hustler. I was completely hopeless.
We shall leave you with some nice shots of us after dark by the
Marlene mural. I've been interested in getting back into photography
for a while and Aimee has been acting gracefully as my model and
muse throughout this trip!
As I am sure you can tell we have been having the most wonderful time,
do check back in a week for the next round, I can promise you flea markets,
photo booths, spa trips, swimming and plenty of outfit posts to keep you
All our love
Harriett & Aimee xx
