Let me be honest with you, Asim and I don't go to parks very often. We usually take the train out to the forest or a day trip to the lake near by, anything to be far away from the crowded park alleys. But fall is the season for a spree! It's probably a tradition to every human being that is living in a country with all four seasons, to stroll through the park's freshly fallen leaves in October. So Asim and I joined in on that tradition for once, which gave me a great opportunity to wear my newest treasures. After buying nearly only vintage for a long time, I treated myself with something new for this fall. You may have noticed that I have never, not in one single post, ever mentioned what I wear and where I bought it, and I am not sure if that is something I should do more often (specially as the experts are still not certain if this is a fashion blog or not -photography and lifestyle are still in the run too) but somehow I feel the need to tell you that these lovely pieces are by the young Austrian Designer Lena Hoschek, who has the wonderful talent to create the opulence that my beloved vintage dresses once had when they where brand new. This feeling of femininity and luxury, of a puffy petticoat, a full skirt and tight waist that immediately makes you want to start dancing with with Fred Astaire...or pose for Gil Elvgrin, it's something somewhere between that.
Don't get me wrong, I will never stop buying my vintage dresses and skirts, they will always be my true love, but it's still exciting to get something new -like new new- every once in a while.
...oh, and no, this post was not sponsored, the lovely Lena Hoschek has no Idea that I had the guts to wear her beautiful gowns with my grubby unbrushed hair and falling apart vintage boots. I just wanted to share my newly found love for her work.
