Freshly Squeezed

Remember that saucy little ditty in Twin Peaks when Agent Cooper first meets Audrey Horne?
I was humming Freshly Squeezed while strapping on these juicy heels that arrived from eBayland last week.
I guess the tune is an appropriate one considering the pin-up theme here today.
Plus I'm wearing my underwear on the outside again.

The dress is a 1950s rayon slip from Dandelion Vintage - another black slip that I've been wearing incessantly this summer.
I added this 1930s peachy-pink satin embroidered and embossed cape from eBay that I also wore here.
The shoes are exactly the same as a pair I loved to death and had to throw out two years ago.
To me, they are the perfectly balanced shoe and I could not believe my eyes when I spied them reincarnated. 
Come to mama!

Platform - check.  Curved blocky heel - check.  Ankle strap - check.  Cushioned old-lady sole - check.

As for the little gem of a hair clip, I spotted this flashy pin up girl in a Brisbane boutique called The Collective Store.
Everything is handmade by Australian artists and I couldn't put down this one by the talented Emma of Miss Rockabilly, who draws her own gorgeous ladies.
You can buy them at her Etsy store.

Does your coffee need a top-up Agent Cooper?

Thank you all of you for your kind words following my car crash a week ago.
As you can see, no permanent damage - but I must have had a head-knock as I have knickers on the brain.
The hero of the day was Vernon the Volvo, who saved his mistress from getting squished and got pummelled for it. 
Desiree xoxo
