An oldie but a goodie: diverse grey

I have had this dress for many years and it was one of the first dresses that I constructed on my Aus dressmaking doll. I have bought numerous blouses from second hand shops (e.g. salvo's, Kleidermarkt) which can be worn with the grey. I also LOVE LOVE LOVE stockings, and heaps of my stockings work well with the grey (secretly looking forward to the colder months... only for stocking related reasons). The cameo necklace was purchased for me from Michael (the wonderful photo taker). I was looking for this type of necklace for ages, and he found it at one of the Hamburg Flohmarkts as a 'welcome to Germany' pressie. The bracelet was given to me by my grandma when I was a little girl. I found it again the other year! 
If Berlin has one thing, it is HEAPS of parks, public spaces, and serene cemeteries. We like to spend time wondering around the city seeking out these little sanctuaries.... oh the serenity

  1. I remember this dress! Pretty sure I tried to squeeze into it myself.

    Tell Michael I love the second last photo. The little flower in it is really nice.
