going medieval

Hi guys!

Here is the promised post about last Sunday when I went to a medieval market with a friend. I can't show you many photos because a) I took them with my mobile phone and the quality is not that good and b) this friend of mine doesn't want the photos of her being online here on my blog, so I can only share a few snapshots of the market itself and of what I wore.

It was a nice little market and the location was perfect: an old small castle called Schloss Eller. However I found it pretty disappointing that we had to pay 5€ to enter. I mean, a market is a place where you spend money on certain thinghs right? So why do you have to pay money to enter? Actually we had to pay money to enter to be able to spend money inside. Helloo?! And they hadn't even mentioned it on their banners before.

♥ jacket: new yorker ♥ cardi: gina tricot ♥ plaid shirt: dr. denim ♥ necklace + scarf. primark ♥ jeans + shoes: h&m ♥

My outfit was casual and comfortable. I think apart from the jeans you don't know the other pieces yet, although i wear them so often. Actually this is a typical everyday look for me! My beloved plaid dress/shirt, which has a really strange fit but which I had to have because of the beautiful colours, my trashy 5€ black velvet shoes and my new favourite khaki perfection jacket from the recent sale. Just add golden accessoires and you have a typical casual Bad Taste Toast look :)

As for the medieval market we had a good time despite the entrance fee. There were lots of stands with medieval-inspired jewelry, clothing, toys, household articles, soaps and spices. You could also watch the medieval actors bake bread (in these stone ovens like the one in the photo above), forge weapons, carve figurines and re-enact swordplays.
I picked up something cute when we were watching the swordplay: a little girl behind us looked at the actors and how they did this sword choreography and asked her father "Daddy are they allowed to do this?" and later on when they re-enacted a quarrel and wrestled she asked "Daddy is this judo?" :D

Have a lovely day!

now playing: us, from outside - i thought i'd be dead by now
