Ow, She's a Brick House

She's mighty mighty, just letting it all hang out ...




I'm in an awfully cheeky mood this Monday evening, I'm wearing my fabulously tacky 1980s gold skirt, a David Bowie t-shirt from Ms Minx's shop, second-hand F21 feather cape, 1950s veiled headband from eBay, leopard bag from Dandelion Vintage, ostrich skin bag from a Melbourne market and VW Melissa Temptations from Amazon.




Tights Please have asked me to review a few pairs of tights for them.Yes please!
I'm wearing a pair of Pamela Mann one size fits all, black and white duo-tone tights.
Well, they fit, they're soft and they actually stretch right up to the crotch with no sagging.
Helga von Trollop and I both have the same problem: crotch-eating growlers that end up in tights with breezy holes in private places ... brrrrrrrrr!!
No chance of that happening with these, I have a 32" inside leg and they stretch beautifully.








Ooh 'tis a bit breezy!
Happy Monday everyone!
Desiree xo

The lady's stacked - and that's a fact! Hahaha! Just had to pop to Youtube to see the Commodores in action.
You ARE one cheeky minx, Desiree, and looking totally gorgeous. Just look at your behind in your I-must-just-check-my-ankle-strap-and-stick-my-butt-out shot! Phhhooaarrr!
You're working the feathers, and NO ONE puts a look together quite like you, you fabulous creature!!!xxxxx

Amazing as always, love your two tone tights !

Desiree, I'm holding you responsible for my dry cleaning. Or at least a scoop of laundry powder. I just spat coffee all over a white top at "crotch eating growler"!

You look awesome, nonetheless

Vix said...

You and Helga are getting a whole load of growler action this week, that's for sure.
You're looking so damned hot in that adorable get-up. The whole thing is just unbel-fricking-ievably wonderful.
I'm dying to crack (hahahahahay) open my stripy tights but the summer's come back so it's bare legs ahoy. xxxx

Oh ye gawds - I just went to Tights Please and saw those Henry Holland Crochet Tights (the granny square tights) and I am LOST!! Does one size fit an ample arse I wonder?

Can any commenteers offer advice?

Size charts lie so I never consult them lol!

delia hornbook said...

Then as i got further down i noticed the tights were 2 toned i thought my eyes were losing the plot ;-)) ha ha. You look amazing and as cute as always. Happy monday to you, dee xx

Cosmia said...

Why have I never found anything that awesome in Forever 21?!

Vintage Coconut said...

Its the daring and dangerously delicious Diva known as Des! ;)
You look incredible in this array of lovely things. I REALLY like those tights they would sure turn heads! That leopard handbag is sexy!
Your Feathers FABULOUS!

I wish you were my neighbor. I would always be peeping through the blinds wondering what you were wearing day after day. *hehehe*

Celynne said...

Great Bowie shirt! Gotta love that man.

Susan Tiner said...

I learned a new word, capelet, from Sal's comment. Your feather capelet is great! Also love the purple shoes and duo tone tights.

Happy Monday!

BaronessVonVintage said...

WOW! Those shoes and that capelet. You put things together so effortlessly, it's amazing!

Gracey said...

Oh, I don't think that skirt is tacky at all. I love it! And I love how you've styled it. Such fun pieces that all work so well together.

Vintage Jane said...

Cheeky with chutzpah! Clothes will NEVER wear you ... You wear them ... so well. M x x

Terri said...

the feather cape looks just great with this skirt!

Alex said...

Happy Monday to you too!

I don't have the crotch problem with tights. It's either cos I'm so short that they don't have to stretch very far, or cos Dorothy Perkins make indestructible tights. I'm leaning towards the latter. Haven't killed a single pair yet.

RETRO REVA said...

I definitely need to try those tights! I too have many holes and roll-down issues from too small tights, even when they say L/XL on the package!
Looking good chicka!
xXx

Taryn said...

You are beyond amazing, can't wait to see what comes next =)

Trees said...

I LOVE that gold skirt - I want one too...

Also, amazing tights and good to hear they fit well. Nothing worse than buying tights and realising that they aren't right!

I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that you are now wearing Lara's skirt (from the 80's - she's a lot older than me) I remember her sporting this and thinking at all of my 8 years of age "woman what are you wearing?" Needless to say I quite like it now - weird how tastes change huh? That's what getting older does to you!
Tikkitiboo + Ahka Vintage
p.s. I'm still 98.7% positive that it is hers; I've looked over the photos about 4 times! I'm trying to ring her at work to get her to look at it and give me a conformation!

Helga! said...

I JUST CAN'T TAKE HOW FUCKING FABULOUS YOU ARE!!!!!!!
Squee!Isn't it delightfully liberating to get GROWLER into a post??! G's awful proud of me,and I can't wait to show him your post!!!

Gay god! Feather, spots, leopard, head gear! It's almost too much. But then you add a dose of metallic and it bloody isn't too much. I LOVE this outfit! x
