Berlin Nights

1.27.2015

Porter Grey maxi dress (similar here), TOGA Pulla moto fur jacket (also seen here), Vintage belt, Rebecca Minkoff crossbody bag (similar here), Antique rings, River Island zip front boots. Shot by The Brooklynette in Berlin.


Finally sorting through my photos from Berlin, and I wanted to kick off my mini travel diary with these ones that we snapped our first night in town. I'm not usually one for shooting at night, but for some reason it seemed more than appropriate to try out something new in this city. On top of that, anyone that's ever visited also knows Berlin was made for night owls: from the clubs that get started past midnight, to the afterparties that linger well into the next day. It also doesn't help that during winter the sun sets around 4PM... 

With this in mind, I left our hotel wearing a look that I knew could transition easily from day to night, and back to day again. This meant first and foremost, comfortable shoes, and secondly, a jacket that would keep me cozy but stylish for hours. I always underestimate how warm this combination fur and moto jacket is, yet it proved itself more than worthy for a full day of running around in Berlin's cold temps. From outside the main fashion week tent (where these pics were snapped) to a delicious dinner at Waterlily in the charming Friedrichshain neighborhood, to a smoke-filled afterparty at the club Watergate, to a late night dance party at Roses (a gay bar covered in plush fur) and finally a late, late-night pit stop at our cab driver's favorite doner place... I must admit we had the perfect introduction to Berlin! We also had no idea what we were getting ourselves into...
