At the 2019 Fashion Show of ArtEZ Arnhem, during the presentation of Birgit Steinbusch‘ collection ‘Abdominoplasty’, we really had to think of one of our all-time favorite images by Irving Penn; could not get it out of our mind. Penn’s photo ‘foot care’ was made in 1990 for Vogue Magazine.
Okay, we reminded ourselves once again that what we vizualie in our minds, always works in real life as well! Just that, that’s it for today. xoxo Mimi Berlin
Abdominoplasty or “tummy tuck” is a cosmetic surgery procedure used to make the abdomen thinner and more firm. The surgery involves the removal of excess skin and fat from the middle and lower abdomen in order to tighten the muscle and fascia of the abdominal wall. This type of surgery is usually sought by patients with loose or sagging tissues after pregnancy or major weight loss.
Joël Hubaut with hotdogs up his nose. Hubaut is a French artist. We, at Mimi Berlin, are interested in his work. But today we don’t have the stamina to look it up on the interweb. However, we can share his portrait, and we do hope that your day is a nice day! xoxo Mimi
Obviously this post is a reminder, a note to self.
The Impatient Feet belong to Mimi Berlin and are made by Mimi Berlin. We have 3 gif’s two with sneakers, or trainers if you will, and one with boots. Of course the footwear is fashionable, we wear, Nike, Alexander McQueen and, most recently boots from APC.
Mimi Berlin’s logo has itchy feet as well, they are illustrated by Mathilde Admiral
Once in a while your eyesight needs to be checked. Visits to the optician become even more necessary when you grow older. It seems like the eyes grow tired of looking at things up-close, and they refuse to focus. We know that age-related eye changes are normal, so we don’t mind visititing the local eyeware store. Au contraire, everytime we visit it’s rather fun. Proof of that below, a portrait of Mimi Berlin by Mimi Berlin, both behind the ‘lenses’.
That’s all we wanted to share with y’all today. Have a nice one! xoxo Mimi Berlin
Both text and image found on the interweb: “Typical figure, showing tendency of student life – stooping head, flat chest, and emaciated limbs” – from an 1894 book titled The United States of America.” We, at Mimi Berlin, especially love the way the bodyparts are described!
This is just one of over 1 million images just released by The British Library to Flickr: The Commons. Learn more here: http://bit.ly/1c14JcN
Let’s show a small selection of images with green hands, why not?! They came to us by means of an algorithm: and we, at Mimi Berlin, “don’t look a given horse in the mouth”
Have a Nice Day! xoxo Mimi

Sometimes a social media algorithm works in your favor. These images of green hands for example are a real good ‘image editing’ subject for us at Mimi Berlin. For these kinds of matching images we used to search and collect for weeks on end. Nowadays they just are a gift, too easy and boring for us. That’s why our ‘image editing‘ posts are quite limited these days.
