BadTasteToast 's Thoughts:

Hi guys!

Well, here is my problem:

The issue is, that my legs are not the prettiest, but well, that’s okay. A bigger problem is my congenital blemish.

As you might have noticed I have these red stains on my right leg, a thing which is called lymphoid haematoma. It (normally) doesn’t hurt, it’s just there and looks strange, but unfortunately some parts of it have been inflamed since last summer. So it hurts a bit and I have to put cream and powder and band-aid on it.

Furthermore I can’t really shave the area around the inflamed spots (irritated skin), so my summer legs would look pretty stupid with hairy circles allover. It sounds ridiculous, I know :D but I really don’t know if I should go for “I don’t give a damn!” or if I’ll have to wear tights to conceal my problem legs.

What do you think? I mean would you eye me suspiciously with my pale red-stained band-aid blotched legs? Or wouldn’t you even notice (haha, good one)?
I’m not a person that leads life after the opinion of others, but I’m curious about other people’s comments about this topic, so I thought I could ask you guys :)

Oh wow, thank you all so much for your nice comments! I hadn't thought that so many of you would answer my question :) I'm still indecisive about the legs issue, but as long as it's not too hot I go for tights and hope the inflamed spots will heal very soon :)

personally i wouldn't notice anything that was wrong if you carried yourself with confidence, i used to have a scar on my left shin because i scrapped myself when i was young, and i was self-conscious of showing my legs too, but nobody really looks at you in the street with a criticizing eye, and they shouldn't anyways. great outfit btw! chic~

Hey..I also have the same problem..I got hundreds of insect bites when I went to visit my country..and they're really visible all over my legs!at first I used to hide them and just wear jeans or tights..but hey you only live I decided to just wear my skirts/shorts and try not to care.=) and plus you're beautiful.=)
Annebeth on June 23
If I were you, I just would not give a damn :) life's too short to worry about trivial things like that and summer is too hot for tights!
GlossyCheshireCat on June 23
Oh, du bist ja Deutsche. :D Kannst du die größeren Parts nicht einfach mit mildem Make-up überschminken oder würde das deine Haut zusätzlich erregen? Ansonsten würde ich sagen, dass du nicht auf das schöne Gefühl von ungebremsten Sonnenstrahlen auf deine Haut verzichten solltest! Notfall: Kleb ein HelloKitty-Pflaster drauf :-D Das wirkt stylish zugleich ;-)
GlossyCheshireCat on June 23
Love the top-part!! =)
MarieMarieMarie on June 23
I say: Don't give a damn...but that is probably easier said than done. Anyways, I think that most people are too busy worrying about their own problems to notice other people's flaws. I get big red blotches on my legs too in the sun and am kinda self conscious about them- but I want to wear skirts and shorts- so I just remind myself that no one is really examining me that closely.
MarieMarieMarie on June 23
And honestly, I think your legs look great in the photos you post on Chictopia- and I don't notice any of the red spots =)

heart the color palette. :)

oh i love this!
schanine on June 23
das ist ja ein schicker rock. ich habe gerade deine letzten fotos durchgeklickt und mir sind keine flecken/haare ins auge gehüpft. aber wenn du dich nicht wohl fühlst, könnte ich dir eine strumpfhose von kunert empfehlen, die mit kühlenden fasern hergestellt werden. ich war begeistert, als ich sie ausprobiert habe.
BadTasteToast on June 23
Super, das klingt gut, die kenne ich noch nicht! Danke für Rat und Kommentar meine Liebe :)

Such a cute outfit!

love the belt and shoes, great skirt and cardigan as well. It't not noticable on my pictures but i have random bruises on my legs from years of accident prone incidences. Scar removal things take too long to make them go away, so I just embrace them. I say wear the bandages, because you could make someone else feel confident in their flaws/issues as well.
PeachyPanda on June 23
Every summer I get the nastiest mosquito bites that turn into hideously ugly scars on my leg. So even though I love dreses/skirts I don't wear them often in the summer time. So I kind of know how you feel. Personally, wear the bandages, I don't think anyone would mind or if they do, so what? You can always wear bandages with cute designs as well
deannasays on June 23
Hey! I agree with what some other people have said, take a test. Maybe go outside without tights and see how you feel? I think you should go for it, do whatever makes youi feel comfortable. Gorgeous outfit by the way <3
slanelle on June 23
Hi! I understand how it could be a problem, that's tough in summer time when it's really hot outside but you don't really feel like showing your legs... I think you should try and go out without tights, and you'll see how it feels. You'll see if you feel okay with it, or if you're a bit unconfortable. Because, at the end of the day, who cares whqt other people think!
