The Creepy Side Of Vintage ...





This is what I wore  ... last weekend ...  40s blazer: Class Of Berlin Store // 40s crepe dress: Ebay // shoes: flea market, modern // 40s-50s paperstring bag: flea market Schöneberg // 50s hat: Bahar Berlin Edeltrash // tights: C&A ...

A week ago when the man and I went to our favourite Saturday flea market in Berlin Schöneberg ... I had the creepiest experience resulting from my clothes ever ... remember my Quote Of The Year story from last November, this was already pretty awkward ... But things can always get worse ...
It was the first real spring day here in Berlin and I felt so happy wearing my fun flower print dress from the 40s to the flea market. As always people were staring at me - this is what you have to get used to, if you look like you popped out of a different era. Some people passing me by were quoting nice and fun things at me ... as being a nice and thankful person I always try to respond in a fun way or just giving a smile or a little 'Thank you'. 
Then there was this guy, reminding me on a Berlin pimp from 1980s TV series, telling me, 'you are really dressed soooo nice'. I smiled a little shy 'Thank you' and went my way.
Suddenly he appeared again behind me, mumbling something about my seamed stockings. 'Oh, the seams, oh the seams, so sexy!' - I ignored him and walked on, trying to spot the hubby somewhere. Again, 'Those beautiful seamed stockings. So special, so hot.' I ignored him again ... A little later I saw him again, smirking and purring at me, 'Oh, so we meet again. Would you consider to cuddle with me?'
CUDDLE? - I told him that I'm with the husband and totally not interested in any interaction with him. As he heard the word Husband, he literally vanished to thin air. I wasn't even able to finish my sentence ...

I love this outfit I wore that day, but I don't believe it's very hot or sexy ... how can someone think, that a woman is interested in any sexual intercourse because of faux seamed tights?! Does this make me look like a prostitute? Does this make me look cuddely?!

When I think of this occassion I find myself shivering from anger and disgust.

The husband wants me to finish this post with something positive ... I love wearing vintage and seamed stocking - but remember, I just cuddle my man!

Oh dear. I can't figure out WHAT IS IT with seamed stockings/tights :D I have experienced the same few times..!

Anyways, you do look lovely!

Vielleicht bist du an einen der lieben Strumpfliebhaber gestoßen

Wow that's so rude and awful. I'm sorry you had to experience that! My boyfriend was once asked by a stranger that does he know where my seams lead and has he been there. People are so weird and I have no idea how they can say these things out loud to people they don't even know!

@ Mrs Muffin: An die hatte ich gar nicht gedacht ... ein Strumpf-Fetischist. Ja, das war er wohl.

I don't even know how to respond to the weird, rudeness of people like that. And what are they even expecting in return for offensive comments. Just remember you did nothing wrong and you looked lovely. There is nothing us girls can do about weirdos except hold our heads high!!

Creeps like that will say inappropriate things no matter how you are dressed. It's not about you. He probably just picked something to use as an excuse to be gross. Urgh what a loser!

How truly unpleasant. I'm really, really sorry that you experienced such an inappropriate encounter. I've really noticed that seamed stockings attract unwanted attention sometimes, too, and have had a few lurid comments over the years due to mine as well - though no one has yet gone so far as to try to solicit me to "cuddle". It's truly awful that such happened to you. Fingers crossed that nothing like that ever occurs to you again.

I always get comments when I'm wearing seamed tights too, but so far they have only been nice ones. It's not nice to get creepy comments. xxx

Oh, I'm so sorry that happened!! Really YUCK!! At least you can still remember how much you enjoy your vintage despite the seriously inappropriate commentary. ❤

I have had my fair share of comments that go just a bit too far, but nothing like this! Yikes! I'm sorry that happened to you!
