Outfit 16 September 2009 and Berlin day one and two

16 September 2009


As promised the first of many many Berlin posts. We arrived at lunch time on Tuesday, so had the afternoon and evening for getting settled into the apartment, wandering the streets and having copious coffee and beers. This outfit was from the second day, when we visited the Berliner Dom, the German Historical Museum, and the Hackesche Hoefe. In the evening we went to the Friedrichshain part of the city for drinks, missed the last U-bahn home and ended up walking. It seemed like a good idea at the time, see the city and all that, but ended up taking about two hours, we hadn’t quite realised how far it was or we would have waited for the bus.

vest – aa
belt – accessorize
skirt – h&m, circa 1996
shoes – charity shop
brooch – from when I was little

Anyway, photos. We have this thing about taking pictures in front of this one bench in front of the Berliner Dom. We originally took one when we visited in 2002 (or 2003?), it was a paper photo, so I can’t show you. Then, 2007 (note the missing cross on the dome):

And this time, 2009:

    I love the outfit. For a second, the image on my screen looked like it was an all black dress but i had to tilt the screen a bit. i knew you can't wear just black!
