Flohmarkt am Mauerpark HAUL 🌺

I’ve been to Mauerpark Flohmartkt quite a few times now and can’t seem to leave without adding something new to my wardrobe. Said like that’s a real burden to my lifestyle… poor me eh with all these new amazing things?

I thought I’d take a moment to share some of my purchases – the good, the bad, and the downright ugly. I can be quite an impulsive shopper and flea markets seem to only amplify my tendencies to pick up things I shouldn’t. But with mistakes costing far less than they would at any high street store, it can be a great way to take risks and try out new things. #NoRegrets.

Lace up vintage brogues. I went to the Flohmarkt quite late in the day last week and a lot of the stalls had slashed their prices dramatically so they could close up and go home. Once such stall had a pile of shoes with all of them priced at €3. I was first drawn in by a pair of black lace ups before discovering ALL of the shoes were in my size. This realisation apparently knocked every other thought out of my head. After deciding that I didn’t like any of the shoes, I impulsively returned to the stall and got two pairs for €3. The above pair are real leather and in great condition but I’m yet to wear them out.

2The other half of my €3 shoe haul. I went back for these imagining that, combined with jeans and a quirky top, I’d have the perfect date night outfit on my hands.

Not sure exactly where this 'date night' would be taking place..

We all make mistakes ok. #NoRegrets

I am shirt obsessed and there is one stall on the market that always delivers. I practically live in baggy shirts and this one is much more fitted than my usual choice (see above) as it’s actually meant for a child. Which I am but ya know, internally. I really like the pattern and it’s definitely got a unique status in my wardrobe on the account that it doesn’t come down to my thighs.

5This shirt is the love of my life. I’ve wanted a shirt like this since I was about 20 and saw a girl wearing one to an audition I was at. It was purple aztec print and oversized and looked SO COOL it sparked an obsessive thrift search that I had completely forgotten about until I laid my eyes on this baby at the market. It’s already become one of my favourite things to wear and I do pretty much live in it, so much so that I’ve had to dig it out my wash pile to show you. I think it was about €15 which is more than I would usually pay for a shirt. I was expecting it to be a lot more and practically threw my money at the woman.

Some patches! I’ve been dreaming of buying a cheap denim jacket and giving it a makeover. My boyfriend also bought some patches too and I think altogether they cost us about €6. Now all I need is the jacket…

I’m now about to head out to the market AGAIN to give away some of my hard earned euros. Wish me luck!
