So, I did my hair and the make-up and went for a killer outfit, I hired the bike a day before at some obscure Tourist trap (albeit a cheaper one than usual). The room and the train tickets were booked well in advace. I was ready to go to the Curvy fashion Fair that is part of Berlin Fashion Week. Best laid plans and all that: after a serious dry spell there was a torrential rain in the morning, however when I left on the bike for the ca. 6k ride it was once more dry. Not dry enough aas it started to rain a bit again.
Then the bike chain came off and nearly threw me off the bike as it clogged the hind wheel. So prissy missy fixed that in a tick – with the result of having very sticky black fingers. As I was almost done I was even offered help by a rather nice gentleman. Who didn’t want to make is hands dirty but offered me the assistance of their mechanic or craftsman. So, good manners aren’t dead yet!
When I arrived at the fair I was a sweaty mess with sticky fingers and wet hair. Thanks to hand dryers where I blow dried my hair (after successfully cleaning my hands) – I looked representable again.
The fair was more or less as expected. And there will be another post about that. I met quite a few (fabulous) bloggers and was surprised how many recognised me or my name. I had a ball!

Studio Untold Blogger’s Collection – loved it. Not sure if I can pull off this outfit. Capes are not for me, but I love the shorts.
