Sometimes I'd Like to Cut Your Head Off Just to See the Look on Your Face

I'm feeling very queen-like today.
Well, from the waist up.
Cardi, three-string pearls, silly hat, fluffy hair, dopey-looking face, oh and granny bag ... it's all there.
Except I think the last queen to show off her rack so disgracefully may have been Marie Antoinette or Elizabeth I.

I threw this on to dash out and pick up The Stylist after her sleepover.
It started with the leggings and then things kind of went from there in the following four minutes I had to get ready.

Off to the library to shatter any delicate nerves that may have been lurking in the bookshelves, but no, I think everyone ran away because I scared them off.
At least I got to the head of the queue in a jiffy.

Then off for coffee and a milkshake with the wee hen, who jumped at the chance to snap off rather a lot of pics - "Mum, EVERYONE is staring at you."

Say hello to my rack.
I love a bit of hook-and-eye wickedness.

This is the first time this darling Vivienne Westwood cotton corset has been out to play.
She's been hanging around waiting patiently and today she finally had her glorious debut.
I was worried about popping out of it, but the nert-pipples behaved and stayed well put.

Vivienne Westwood corset - eBay
Leather cut-offs - Bitching and Junkfood
Leggings - Black Milk
Cardigan - Camberwell flea market, Melbourne
Necklace, earrings and bag - thrifted
Hat - Etsy
Shoes - F21
This outfit makes me feel half-Queenie, half-Edmund Blackadder.
Gosh, I'm full of good ideas today!
Baci, Desiree xo

  16. That's one brilliant creation for a 4 minute outfit! I love that short, leggings and sensible shoes combo, it's just genius. That corset? Wowser!!!
    Queenie is the best. If she was really our monarch I might develop a smidgeon of interest in the royals. xxx

  17. Hi Desiree! those leggings of yours to cool, to fierce plus with the leather shorts fabulous - The cardi is great, love those kinds of cardis, i am always on the look out for them - You look fabulous lady!


  18. Well, of COURSE everyone was staring at you - in swiped-sideways, slack-jawed admiration at you sheer gloriousness.

  19. I wish I could run into you on the street. i bet we would both scream like monkeys and become bestest buddies! You know, you had me at the title....

  20. You do crack me up, you're looking good and making me laugh, love Vivienne Westwood and love you.

    I said to Ben the other day that if we ever have a girl I'm calling her Queenie. Well, probably Elizabeth as a full name, but Queenie day to day.


  21. It must be so much fun having you for a Mom. I want to be little again so I can adopt you as my Mom.

  22. Love the way you style these leggings. Your grandkids must have so much fun spending time with you. I hope I can be as daring as you with style in my 60's too : )


Just do it ...
