Flowers On The Wall

East Side Gallery is a deteriorating stretch of the Berlin Wall (or Berliner Mauer) that currently stands as the largest open air gallery in the world. According to Wikipedia, anyway. Approximately 106 artworks by artists from all over the world adorn the old barrier. Some political, some whimsical but almost all entirely hopeful. While I didn't write on or chip away at the wall as so many tourists seem to do, I touched it. Like, actually totally touched it.

Necktie: Just some lace from C&H Fabrics
Check shirt: From Garage, this super cool pay-by-the-kilo vintage place in Berlin.
Skirt: Vintage shop in Paris

This is really very interesting! I probably would've just touched it too.

I don't think I'd be able to bring myself to chip a bit off =/

Ack, you're making me insanely jealous, I'm planning my own Europe shenanigans for next February and it can't get here soon enough!

a friend of mine went to Berlin right after the Wall came down and brought me back a rather sizeable and artistically rendered chunk which I have to this very day!

You see loads of places selling chunks of the wall but I'm pretty sure 99% of them are bullshit. Lucky you Sonya! Thanks Dannie, and everyone. x
