I Like 'Em Jumbo

Mondays don't have to be all doom and gloom.
Huge-o flares, platforms and hair bows should be extra wide, high and large to take the focus off the misery and on what matters.
Size baby ... it's a Monday thing.
Sparkle, shine and generally wake up your work mates by making it a Massive Monday.
Make it count ... large style.

 I feel so good, if there was a limbo pole nearby I'm pretty sure I would try to tackle it.


 Many moons ago I gnashed my teeth to stumps over these shoes ... then two weeks ago, Solestruck had a one-day sale and thanks to my jumbo feet, they had my size at a quarter of the price!

 1970s lurex flares, t-shirt, 1960s beauty case - various flea markets
Harlequin bow - Jubilee gift from the darling Em of Vintage Sweetheart
Bangles, domino earrings, metal necklace, rings - thrifted
Glass granny necklace - De Mille Vintage
Shoes - Solestruck sale






It's amazing what you can you with a cool filter.
This is the first time I'm linking up to Not Dead Yet Style's Visible Monday.

Love the new shoes Desiree, and the big bow makes me think of Vivienne Westwood, what a lovely prezzy. You look amazing but you always do anyway, Monday or not! Meanwhile I'm sat here in my jammies like a big slob, got my make up on though! xx

Loving the shoes.

edie pop said...

This is how every week should start!
I can't take my eyes off your new shoes, I really don't know any word to describe how fabulous they are and perfect with everything you are wearing..it's so true: size matters!! I must copycat the huge hair bow and the t shirt with lurex pants!What else should I say: WOW!
Lots of love xxxxx

Bella Morte said...

Wow! Those flares and shoes are just fan-frickin-tastic!!! I love the almost glittery metallic shine on those flares, in fact I have a mac shadow called Humid which would be a brilliant match for them!

I'm a bit of a solestruck stalker, all the shoes are just amazingly divine - I would sell my body to get hold of a pair but the only problem is I can't walk in heels to save my life so there would be little point in me owning them! I really love the JC Kristi - they are amazing! Also the JC 99 Tie Red Glitters, the JC Shadow Studs, the JC Lita Spikes and Damsel Spikes.. Jeffrey Campbell shoes kick so much ass! xoxo

Katie said...

Those are THE MOST shimmery pants. Love 'em. I don't work on Mondays so I'm always the cheerful person bouncing around while everyone else mumbles and grumbles, haha :)

You could stomp across the globe in those awesome shoes! Your buying them was a karmic event. Green glitter pants should be a standard uniform for school children and city hall employees. Stunning, stunning, stunning!! I'm awake and happy now. Your hair bow is like the sun.

Those pants are great, and they look sparkly. What kind of camera do you use to take your photos? Mine is apparently crapping out on me.
