Well that's how I feel after an enormous parcel arrived from NYC, chock full of Vivienne Westwood Melissa shoes.
I have the original Punk Glam Queen herself, the delectable Suzanne of Idee Fixe, to thank for kindly offering to trudge out to the VIP opening of the annual Melissa sample sale and picking out some bargains for me.
"This is my size, my budget, please pick out anything you think I'll like!!"
Suzanne had free reign and she did not disappoint.
I cannot believe how cheap the shoes were - shoes that normally retail for around $200+ were going for as low as twenty bucks a pair - eeeep!
Thank you so much Suzanne!!
Suzanne's gorgeous Punk Glam Princess picked out these royal blue shoes for their vintage-y style.
I love them!
Today I wore them with this 1960s tartan pinafore dress I snagged for $7 at one of my local op shops earlier this week.
The Asthma Foundation had a winter half-price sale, which included their "retro racks" so I grabbed this frock, two 1960s sweaters and a pair of tweed trousers for twenty bucks.
Theodora, the goddess of thrifting, was certainly smiling on me that day!
I like how the blue stands out against the white and pink floral tights - an unusual combination, but I like it with the bold tartan print.
I'm surprised at how warm the fishnet t-shirt is - a nice little heat trap.
I thrifted the leather driving gloves for a couple of bucks and chopped the fingers off to make fingerless gloves - I wear them all the time.
The blond fur cape is from the 1940s, another bargain for $12 thrifted several years ago.
Lime green earrings and flower brooch ... and a cheeky appearance from The Stylist in her VW Melissa love heart flip flops.
She's pretty chuffed at being able to fit into ladies-sized shoes at last:).
Super-dooper comfort and a quaint little nod to the 1930s don't you think?
Oh do you like my hair?
The Stylist's work ... I love school holidays:)
