I'm really sorry about the lack of posts our Internet is still not set up (can you imagin!) actually it's quite a disaster and forewarn anyone who moves to Germany be prepared! They connected our Internet to another home needless to say its been very frustrating. I have also been busy pulling our home together my mom arrives tmrw yippee so it's been a whirlwind of furniture shopping etc. I hope to get my hostess with the mostest list out tmrw from Jakob's office! Hope everyone is having a wonderful day!

Green Seams Thursday.....Jewelry Lust

I know that green seams generally means clothes and fashion but I have been dying to share this eco friendly jewelry line by Dream Collective. Using organic elements such as wood, bone, antique Africa beads and oxidized brass, Dream Collective combination of subdued tones and earthy delicacy is the perfect accessory for a girl with a bohemian spirit. I of course want everything!  Looks like my Christmas list just got longer :)

Burgundy Skirt For Less!

J Crew 79.99

Single Green Female $24

I was looking for a Christmas present on the J Crew website for Jakob and jumped over to the women's section. I love the way they style their clothes and I suggest stuff for my friend Jane that would look great on her. On to my point now! I found this burgundy skirt that is the exact same silhouette as the skirt in my Etsy Shop, how exciting is that! I love the way J Crew paired it with the black and white polka dot blouse.

Frugal Fashionista Friday...One Jacket Two Looks!

The motorcycle jacket is a perfect addition to you wardrobe and easy to find at your local vintage store! Mine was a closet purge form my best friend Paula and I paired it with my favorite vintage pieces.
In the first look I was inspired by winter white and when I saw this skirt (16 euros) at Humana I knew I had to have it! The Sweater is from H and M which I borrowed from my daughter Michaela. I completed the look with my go to purse my vintage Coach
 In the second look that night Jakob and I went to our favorite restaurant DUDU yes the name sounds weird but trust me the food is not doo doo!!! I took my summer dress ($23) and paired it with my cream sweater (8 euros) and my needlepoint purse (16 euros) both from Humana. The scarf in both pictures, I kinda took over from Jakob since he never wore it and besides nothing's better than wearing your boyfriend's clothes :)

Frugal Fashionista Friday...Vintage Halloween!

Last Saturday Jakob and I went to a Halloween party at the Soho House. It was to say the least, a bit of a mission! Why you may ask? well Jakob doesn't like to dress up and coming from many years of Halloween in New York I was not havin it!!!! So we went on the hunt at first I wanted to be Cleopatra and Mark Anthony but Jakob was not to keen on wearing a skirt...humph! So it was plan B we went to probably the only Halloween shop in Berlin and Jakob found the devil mask. Michaela suggested he wear it with a suit (I gather to be devilishly handsome) and I was set on being an angel but realized there wasn't very much white in my wardrobe so I opted to be the devil's minion, which is way more fun! Here is the vintage goodies I added to my wardrobe! 

The vintage belt was a closet purge from my bestie Paula, shiny YSL tights I found at Humana for 16 euros I put an American Apparel bodysuit bottom I cut over the tights and wore my Zara heels I bought at the flea market for 10 euros and voila there you have the devil's minion!
