This is what I wore last sunday to stroll over the flea market around the corner ... probably 90s does 40s dress: colours/kleidermarkt // tights: C&A (yes, they have a run ... grrrrh) // shoes: Deichmann // 50s wicker purse: flea market Boxhagener Platz, Berlin // 90s does 40s straw hat: flea market ... this new to me wicker/leather 50s purse I snapped up the flea market at Arkona Platz, Berlin. Yeah to green details!
I made a strange experience on past sunday ...
It was the first day of spring this year and I felt like celebrating the nice weather with getting all dolled up for the flea market ... and I felt happy. As many other vintage enthusiasts I'm kind of used to that people stop and stare. This sunday it was special ... quite a lot of people (tourists - flea markets here are filled with tourists) started to take photos of me without asking if it is ok. This really made me mad after a while! Probably this is part of the deal when you are the only clown in the circus ... Thanks to the nice french couple who asked nicely if they could take a picture (the were the only ones that asked). Hahaha, it was so strange to pose with strangers - but it made them happy and it was fun.
Now the next weekend is here and we are planning our new flea market visits ... this time I feel like going to an market in the outskirts of Berlin ... means less tourists and less cameras.
