    Thank you – I love to wear it. The shoes I found first – it’s much easier to buy first the shoes and looking afterwards for the fitting fabric.

    Indian Summer in Bremen? Ich weiß gar nicht, was Du hast, the look of the pants is great. Aber wenn sie sich nicht so gemütlich anfühlt, war der Stoff wohl doch zu steif. Mehr noch würde mich Dein…
