Comic Relief

Famous last words and all that, but I don't think I can see myself breaking my no-denim pledge anytime soon.
I've gone tights mad.
Can you blame me after this pair turned up yesterday from

They haven't left my legs since yesterday morning, apart from a bedtime breather.
I'm wearing them with an all-thrifted outfit: a 1960s wool cape and cotton blouse, leather shorts, earrings and bangles, plus the bag which was a gift from Nelly.

What's that you say?
Are you choking or what?
Oh the shoes! 
Yes, the shoes are rather grand aren't they? Hehehe.
I'm afraid they were the last pair of Vivienne Westwood Melissa Wings on Amazon and they happened to be in my size.
If you have size 10 feet, you would have been in luck.

Sigh ... it's true, patience is a virtue as I saved up for quite a while, then ended up getting $100 off the full price.
Oh what joy!

May many drool-worthy bargains await you this week too:).
