My favourite outfit, inspiration and the things I'd like to have.

  -Meine Lieblingskleidung, Inspiration und Dinge die ich gerne haben würde-

Assignment A

This is my very first school-blog-assignment, and I think this is the nicest homework I'll get, next to sewing ofcourse. The first assignment was to post a picture of our favourite ouftit :

Dies ist mein erster Schul-Blog-Aufgabe, und ich denke das es der Beste Art von Hausaufgaben ist. Für die erste Aufgabe sollten wir einen Foto in unsere Lieblingskleidung machen.

This was actually the first vintage ouftit I ever bought. It's a two-piece with cute flower crepe fabric which is in perfect condition. It dates to the 1940s. Only the buttons and zipper have been replaced, probably in the 1980s, according to the zipper. I bought it in a second-hand-store for 8 Euros (both pieces were 4 euro) and I've worn it so many times already since I bough it one and a half year ago. There are no labels or brands, for it was handmade by someone who could sew very well many, many years ago. For the school assignment, we also have to answer this question : 'How important is fashion to you' ? Fashion is rather important to me, although I really do not care about the latest trends. I like to wear things that were in fashion from the 1930s and the 1940s.

Dies war eigentlich der erste Vintage-Outfit der ich gekauft habe. Es ist ein zweiteiliges Kleid aus Crepe-Stoff mit Blumenmuster und auch noch in perfekter Zustand. Es stammt aus den 1940er Jahren. Nur die Knöpfe und der RV sind mal erneuert worden, wahrscheinlich in den 1980er Jahren. Ich habe es für 8 Euro in einem Secondhandladen gekauft for 1,5 Jahren. Es wurde von Hand gemacht. Für die Schulaufgabe sollen wir diese Frage beantworten : 'Wie wichtig ist Mode für dich ?'. Also Mode ist für mich schon wichtig. Nur ist es mir egal was zurzeit Mode ist. Ich mag es, Mode aus den 1930er und 1940er Jahren zu tragen.

Assignment B

For this assignment we had to collect images of clothing we would like to have but which is far too expensive. I collected images from Etsy, and created a collage using Polyvore. I also wrote down the prices. So if you like vintage and have a lot of money, this is what you can buy ;).

Für diese Aufgabe sollten wir Bilder von Kleidung sammeln der wir gerne haben möchten, aber zu teuer ist. Ich habe Bilder von Etsy gesammelt und mit Polyvore einen Collage gemacht. Auch habe ich die Preise dazugeschrieben.

Things I'd like to have .. But they're too expensive

I looked for 1940s shoes because I like old shoes so much since I've bought a pair in Amsterdam a few weeks ago. I can never have too much vintage dresses. Especially with prints. And I want to collect vintage bags, as I have only one. I think the cape is so cute and warm, and it has this stunning 1940s silhouette.

Ich habe Bilder von 1940er Jahre Schuhe gesucht weil ich -Seitdem ich in Amsterdam ein Paar Schuhe aus den 40ern gekauf habe- alte Schuhe liebe. Ich habe auch Kleider gesucht, am liebsten mit Muster. Und ich möchte gerne vintage Taschen sammeln, da ich bisher nur eine habe. Und der Cape ist einfach zu suess, warm und hat diese 40er Jahre ´Form´.

Assignment C

For this assignment, we had to write down who inspires us. I chose my friend Lindsay, which I met in Amsterdam. We have so much in comment and I am so glad that I have finally found a vintage-friend to talk about all things 1940s :). She also has a beautiful and interesting blog :

Für diese Aufgabe sollten wird erklären, wem uns inspiriert, Ich habe meine Freundin Lindsay genommen. ich habe sie in Amsterdam kennengelernt und ich bin so froh, entlich eine Vintage-Freundin gefunden zu haben. Sie hat auch ein Blog :

 I really admire her style because she is so historically correct. Her clothing, her shoes and especially her hair. She already gave me advice about curling and combing hair, but mine still doesn't look as beautiful as hers does :) She is really nice and I think she's just in general a great person. And I love the fact that we both love the 1940s.

Ich liebe ihren Sil, weil es auch so historisch korrekt aussieht. Ihre Kleidung, ihre Schuhe und vor allem ihre Haare, Sie hat mir schon geholfen, aber meine Haare sehen noch immer nicht so schön aus 
wie Ihre. Sie ist so nett und ich liebe es, das wir beiden den 1940ern lieben :).

Love, Jip.

What a thoroughly lovely post, I always enjoy hearing about a person's early days and first steps into the vintage fashion world.

I really have to echo the other two posters here, you hair looks absolutely terrific!

What a great homework assignment!

I love your favorite outfit. It is so colorful! And what a score!

Regarding how important fashion is to oneself, I think there is something to be said about your perspective (as well as mine). While we both may say that fashion is important to us, we are not lemmings and follow trends, like you mentioned. In this, I think those who love vintage are more secure in themselves and their passions.

Oh boy, I totally understand about things being too expensive to buy. Loving vintage a little difficult at times. *sigh*

And it is so lovely that you have a friend who inspires you! I think that if I had to answer that question, I'd be saying some movie star or something.
