No Caged Birds

Instead a lot of pink roses and cherry blossoms.

No true vintage look without fascinator, do you agree?

So proud that I managed to match the shade of pink from my top, hair and fascinator this well.

Japanese cherry blossoms and pretty cages: Isn't this romantic?

Wearing glitter boots, that's how I roll.

Birds in cages dream of flying high, high on the sky. Freedom is a precious thing for those who lack it. Seeing animals imprisoned in zoos always causes a little bit of sadness in me, despite the joy of being able to see tigers, lions and elephants, without traveling to places far away and going to a safari. Therefore I am happy, that they are pretty bird cages on my top, but just beautiful cherry blossoms instead of imprisoned animals. The sweet illustration on my top makes me think of an Asian fairy tale, just like Disney's Mulan. I'll never stop being a Disney girl for sure.

I am back to pink hair as you can see. Feeling like a bird myself again, Sara the flamingo. And lucky me is a free bird as well. Free to wear whatever I want, free to have fun and enjoy myself.

This is one of my genuine vintage looks again. I know a few of you would love more of my fifties looks. I wasn't very much into the mood for this kind of style lately, but a visit to Collectif Clothing changed everything instantly. I couldn't leave without this skirt and top. Especially the velvet skirt caught my eyes immediately. It's amazing: Like no other shop, Collectif seems to have discovered the secret of how to make girls feels like ladies, just with a piece of clothing.

Add a little bit of glitter – just like I do with my shoes – and every gray day will have a happy end. How do you like this pink look my lovelies?

My Outfit: 
Top & Skirt: Collectif Clothing, Fascinator: Jazzafine
Shoes: Juju at Schuh, Tights: H&M, Rings: A Gift

Thanks to Jazzafine for the lovely fascinator.

  1. Hello my sweet!! Well, I adore this look :) The skirt is perfection along with this cardigan :))) You are the queen of flamingos :)))) I love it very much and I love to see your pink hair back too!! Collectif is such a fabulous shop. I have some things from them waiting for me under the tree (I had to pick, so the sizes were right) and I will get some more most likely in the sales, haha!! I always hold off purchasing lots before the sales. So, I will treat myself. This skirt is a favourite, I love florals. You look a dream doll :) I hope you have a magical evening!! <3 xxx
