Hey guys, lange nicht gesehen! Bei mir gibt es zurzeit wieder procrastination at its finest. Ich schlage mich normalerweise mithilfe von Gewürzspekulatius, heißer Schokolade, Vanilleduftkerzen und Strickpullis durch den Winter, aber heute musste ich euch einfach direkt zeigen, was ich mir gekauft habe: Nämlich dieses absolut wunderbare Versace-Kleid.
Das erste Mal, dass ich ein solches Kleid gesehen habe, war 2013 auf Instagram, und vom ersten Moment an wollte ich so eins haben. Meine damalige Google-Suche ergab jedoch schnell, dass originale 90s-Kleider von Versace eigentlich nur auf Etsy zu Bill Gates‘ Monatsgehalt zu haben sind, und so habe ich den Gedanken, jemals eins besitzen zu können, erst einmal auf Eis gelegt.
Dieses Eis ist (komischerweise jetzt im Winter) jedoch geschmolzen, als ich zufällig und verhältnismäßig günstig letzte Woche genau das Kleid auf ebay Kleinanzeigen gefunden habe, was ich auf Etsy für circa das zwanzigfache gefunden hab. Ebay Kleinanzeigen ist für günstige Vintagekleidung ein echter Geheimtipp, vor allem seit Einführung der Suchaufträge, die euch automatisch neu hochgeladene Artikel anzeigt, die euren Suchkriterien entsprechen.
Lange Rede, kurzer Sinn: Hier ein für die Jahreszeit komplett unangemessenes, aber sehr fancy Outfit, bye loves

a guide to coffee and lomography in amsterdam + rotterdam

Hey guys, I know I usually (if you can call my post production even close to usually) write my blog posts in German, but I’ve been to the Netherlands a few weeks ago and I want everyone to be able to read this blog post.
It’s actually funny I went to Rotterdam because we actually wanted to go to Amsterdam, but the airbnb’s near the center are not quite budget-friendly aka super expensive for students. Then we got ignored by an airbnb host in Amsterdam oost because I asked her about night buses, just in case we wouldn’t catch the last train which runs at 12pm, which instantly made her think we only came to party (far from it, I’m the girl at a party who talks to the dog).
So, long story short, we were overthinking where the hell in Europe we could go, when my friend Tine booked a train to Rotterdam because she misunderstood us. So Daniel and I booked the same train too. We paid about 40€ one way, going there by Deutsche Bahn. Our Airbnb was in Rotterdam oost, 3km from the central station and we paid 60€ for the whole apartment where we could shoot as well (because the three of us are wannabe-photographers, as u can tell from clicking on my friends‘ names).

We had a lot of fun in Rotterdam, and it’s only stone’s throw away from Amsterdam. One day we headed over to the capital, where we also met the local Laura who knows all about the best vegan restaurants and Cafés. The Flixbus takes one hour to get there and costs approximately 5€ one way.

So, without any futher ado, let’s jump right into my tips and analogous pictures I took with my 35mm Film cameras, my all time favorite Canon AV-1 as well as my new old Praktika MTL-3 from a fleamarket.


ROTTERDAM

Cafés + Restaurants

COFFEE COMPANY

WHERE? There are two coffeeshops of this chain in Rotterdam, one is at Eendrachtsplein 2, the other one is at Meent 12-14
WHAT? a super cute little coffee shop, where you see mostly students and creative people
COFFEE RATING? I would give Coffee Company 3/5 stars. I ordered a small caramel latte and spent almost 4€, and apparently it was very, very small. Anyway, the second time we went there after visiting cheap fashion which is just around the corner and Daniel bought a iced latte for almost the same price which was actually 99% ice but the coffee part was quite delicious. You pay for the location, not the coffee.

DE IJSSALON
WHERE? There are several addresses as well in Rotterdam.
WHAT? it’s a cute icecream shop chain.
ICECREAM RATING? 4/5. Not too expensive and the icecream is super creamy and super italien. Cute interior. Only minus was that we ordered one scoop of matcha icecream that tasted like Sushi. I like sushi, but not as an icecream…

GRACY’s DINER
WHERE? Mauritsstraat 1A.
WHAT? Gracy’s is a super super super super super (…) super cute American-looking Diner with yummy burgers and huge diabetes milkshakes.
FOOD RATING? 5/5. I took the veggie burger which was about 8€, not the most delicious one I ever ate but Oh lord, their furniture. Check it out.

SUMO SUSHI BAR
WHERE? West-Kruiskade 2A
WHAT? A super delicous Sushi Restaurant right in the center of Rotterdam.
FOOD RATING? 5/5! Great quality Sushi, affordable all you can eat and maaaaany possible combinations. The all you can eat is about 20€.

KING-KONG HOSTEL
WHERE? In the most trendy street of Rotterdam, Witte de Withstraat.
WHAT? It’s actually a cute hostel which is quite cheap, but it also has a super cool café.
FOOD RATING? Great great great! 5/5! The first evening we ordered one big homemade lemonade for 3€ to share but the bar keeper made us two that evening. They also have great chocolate cake to share with your friends and the coffee is super yummy!

OP HET DAK
WHERE? Schiekade 189
WHAT? A Restaurant / Café on the top of a building. They have a small garden from which they get their herbs ect. for the café.
FOOD RATING? I’ve actually not been there yet, but Laura recommended it to me.

(Vintage) Shops

CHEAP FASHION
WHERE? Meent 25
WHAT? My new all time favorite vintage shop. It really has vintage, no trash, but it’s quite cheap (I paid 10€ for a vintage 80s adidas leggings).
RATING? 500/5 would recommend! Very big selection of vintage clothing, super cute unique pieces and super super affordable.

THE EPISODE
WHERE? Again in the Witte de Withstraat.
WHAT? A vintage chain that sends all the clothing from shop to shop, it’s scattered all over Europe.
RATING? It’s way more expensive than cheap fashion but serves all hipster and vintage dreams, so I’d say it’s 4/5 because it’s still affordable.

DEARHUNTER VINTAGE

WHERE? Eendrachtsweg 55A.
WHAT? Another, but more high end vintage shop.
RATING? 3/5, still not too expensive, especially in sale, but way smaller than the other two.

SLUIJTER & MEIJER

WHERE? Guess where. (Witte de Withstraat)
WHAT? I don’t know how to define this, but it has all kind of hipster furniture, clothing and accessoires.
RATING? 3/5. More expensive but it’s worth a visit because everything looks super fancy.

PicsArt_08-25-11.21.32

TONY’s GARAGE SALE
WHERE? Burgemeester van Walsumweg 528
WHAT? A vintage furniture / clothing shop
RATING? 4/5. It’s way too expensive in my opinion but great for taking photos, as you can see in Luca’s Feed.

AMSTERDAM
Cafés + Restaurants
THE AVOCADO SHOW
WHERE? Daniel Stalpertstraat 61
WHAT? A restaurant that has only dishes with avocado, many vegan options available.
RATING? 3/5. Kind of overhyped. We paid 8€ for a TOAST. Anyway it’s kind of a cool idea to support.

PicsArt_08-25-11.24.32

MASTINO
WHERE? Eerste van der Helsstraat 78
WHAT? A pizza restaurant with the best vegan pizza ever! Also has vegan raw cake and shit.
RATING? 4/5 affordable and very delicious. One little minus is that they don’t have many places to sit so sometimes you need to wait until someone leaves.

PicsArt_08-25-11.25.13

WILDERNIS
WHERE? Bilderdijkstraat 165F
WHAT? A flower / cacti shop with many, many handmade and storemade things. It’s also a very affordable café though.
RATING? 5/5 for the coffee which was quite cheap and included a stroopwafel, 2/5 for the flowers ect because they’re pretty but expensive.

PicsArt_08-25-11.23.51(1)

(Vintage) Shops
JUTTERSDOK
WHERE? Postjeskade 23-25
WHAT? A thrift shop with lots of furniture, clothing, books and vinyls.
RATING? 5/5. Very trashy but just as cheap. I bought a topshop bomber jacket for only 4€.

So, right now the important part. I’ll definetely come back as soon as possible, so what are your tips for the Netherlands?

love, kim x

Elements inspired lookbook: BURNING DESIRE [fire]


Shirt & Jacket: Vintage / Shoes: Dr Martens / Glasses: Ebay / Pants: Patrons of Peace but v old


IMG_2877

Meddl Leude, was geht? Bin heute endlich dazu gekommen, den zweiten Blogpost zu bearbeiten und hier ist er. Inspiriert von Feuer, und ja i know, man erkennt’s nicht. Aber hey, schaut euch doch mein Shirt an! Es ist vintage und ein echtes Goldstück. Liebe es, weil es hinten auch noch ’nen Print hat (und ignoriere erfolgreich, wie unglaublich riesig es ist). Tja, da ich nicht geplant habe, hier irgendwas besonderes zu schreiben, plaudere ich einfach etwas aus dem Nähkästchen. Zurzeit habe ich Abifrei und bereite mich mehr oder weniger erfolgreich auf meine zwei letzten Prüfungen im Juni vor. Samstag fahre ich nach Wien und ich bin unsicher, was ich da für Jacke(n) und Schuhe mitnehmen soll. Dachte an Buffalo Platforms, aber Docs sind vielseitiger einsetzbar. Neben einer dünnen Regenjacke bräuchte ich noch eine etwas dickere, weshalb die Lederjacke aus diesem Outfit absolut perfekt wäre, allerdings ist es eine echte Bikerjacke (bin ne ganz coole, ich weiß), die gefühlt 3 Tonnen wiegt, wenn man sie mal so trägt. Irgendwelche Jacken- und Schuhideen? # firstworldproblems
Gleich shoote ich auch schon den nächsten Post, mal sehen, ob ich Erfolg habe. Bis bald! x Kim

Elements inspired lookbook: CRASHING LIKE WAVES [water]

Eigentlich wollte ich ’nen Post bezüglich der Landtagswahl schreiben, aber irgendwie deprimiert mich das Thema zu sehr und ich wollte mal wieder ein paar „plumpe“ Outfitposts (sorry influenceeerrs). Und da alle guten Dinge ja bekanntlich vier sind (der Vater, der Sohn, der heilige Geist und Satan), habe ich mich diesmal von den vier Elementen inspirieren lassen. Nur ’ne kleine Nebeninfo, damit man es auch erkennt: das Kleid ist eigentlich schwarz-blau-glänzend mit einem superauffälligen Blauanteil, nur leider nicht auf meinen 258 geschossenen Bildern.
Liebe an euch alle, und falls ihr aus Schleswig-Holstein seid, vergesst nicht, Sonntag zu wählen!


Everything Vintage

vetements-inspired fall look

Jojojo Leute, heute gibt’s mal nicht großartiges. Gibt zwar eine Menge Dinge, über die ich mich zurzeit aufregen könnte, aber das bleibt für diesen ganz klassischen Outfitpost mal hinten drangestellt. Bin zurzeit ganz versessen auf die schönen Shirts und Pullover von Vetements, besonders die mit den 100-Meter-Ärmeln. Natürlich würde ich für nen Sweater n i e m a l s über Tausend Euro bezahlen, weshalb ich superglücklich war, als ich diesen Pullover im Secondhandshop meines Vertrauens gefunden habe. Er so einen early 2000-Vibe. Als ich ihn anprobiert habe und gemerkt hab, dass er eben solche 10000000-Meter-Ärmel hatte, musste er einfach mit. Das tolle Septum ist von der Marke Trashed and Ill und aus Echtsilber, kann euch nur empfehlen, da mal vorbeizuschauen :-)

Das war’s erstmal für heute, mir ist mehr nach Essen als nach Schreiben. Bald gibt’s für euch eine Lookbookserie, in der ich euch meine liebsten Vintage-Teile vorstelle. Seid gespannt!

China // Guangzhou 2k15

I like mochi. This might be the first reason for me to go to China for a few weeks. I also like green tea. Green tea ist delicious.
It is the second time I’ve been to Guangzhou now, a big city near Hongkong that isn’t that polluted. The greatest thing about this city is the food – cheap, delicious and 100% original chinese. And, of course, the clothes, which you can buy on the street for a few euros or in cool, extraordinary shopping centres. I met some awesome people and made new friends, ate way too much and took pictures of my friend Anna with whom I stayed there. Unfortunately, the times kind of flew und I was back home way too soon. The days there were exciting, funny and epic. I we didn’t eat out or went shopping or took photos, we learned something about buddhist traditions and how important freedom is. It’s a privilegue that everyone should have, so we bought five white and eight grey doves and let them free. They love their new home, the Dafushan Forest Park. I’ve you’re ever there, say hello to them.

Ach ja und by the way sorrrrrrrryyyyyy Leute dass ich so lange nichts gepostet hab, meine Kreativität verhält sich leider antiproportional zu meinem Schulstress!

Abandoned

Shop | Instagram | Facebook

This is me, back on WordPress after one million years, posing in a particularly way. The last few weeks were quite stressing and I’m actually not quite into blogging at the moment. There are so many different things to do, but I’m actually too lazy to do them so I’m laying in bed every day for like 6 hours. I bought a Nintendo 2DS (That’s the normal 3DS but without 3D) two weeks ago with a pre-installed Pokemon Game called „Omega Ruby“. Pokemon – that’s what I love.

Anyway, below you find a few pictures of me and my dearest Boy who took most of the photos. We discovered an abandoned house in my neighborhood what puzzled me because I never got to know the family there moved away. The house and the garden were kind of like totally destroyed with weird objects everywhere, just like this cute shiny light bulb. I just dyed my hair grey at this time (it became more kind of purple, but fck it), so I thought it was quite a good opportunity to wear one of my new favorite jackets for the first time that I got from dresslink, an online shop that you might know. What I like about dresslink is that they’re quite cheap and the quality of the clothing is really good anyway. That’s just my kind of thing as a first-class-fleamarket-visitor :-)
