And the addiction begins
It now seems that the only time I get a chance to do my blog is late at night, as I type this it has just gone past midnight and bizarrely I am not in bed! To be honest though if I didn't write this now I would have probably forgotten by tomorrow (well later on today) and pushed it aside! So while I'm still (half) awake I'm quickly posting before I hit the hay!
Basically I just wanted to show off a little, which if you know me, is something I like to do often enough, however good enough time to brag, while I was trailing the Internet the other day with my house mate I went on a few websites that sold Vivienne Westwood shoes, I've always adored her clothes/bags/shoes you name it, I've drooled over it and I came across the Melissa shoes, I'd seen these in past collections and fell in love immediately however they were always a bit out of my price league, once again for those who know me, over £10 is normally a no go for me! Also I had the chance to try a pair on before Christmas, hoping Father Christmas would treat me to a pair (which he didn't!) and as I tried on the heels, unfortunately I thought they were not for me, basically because my feet felt like they were in some kind of pole dancers shoe so I gave up on this dream.
Until now.. It completely slipped my mind that in these collections they also did flats! Low and behold my saviour, I went shopping with my fella recently and saw a pair for £70 (£85 on the tinterweb) and he said he would treat me to some but I... for once put my foot down and said no...until now when I came across a rather nice sale section on a Vivienne Westwood site where they were selling the Melissa flats for a damn good offer! I saw two pairs I liked, one in a size 7, one in an 8, I'm an awkward size so I didn't know what to get, and I thought well you only live once and bought both for a brilliant price and thought if one pair didn't fit I'd return them, however when I got them, they both strangely seemed to fit so I just had to keep them both! Luckily my fella stuck by his word and bought them for me ( I am at university after all, poor student and all that!) And here are my new babies themselves:
Aren't they beautiful, I think I'm going to treasure them forever, I can officially say I own designer,
well I do own a vintage Jaegar coat but you know what I mean.
I love them and think they go well with the majority of my vintage and repro 40s and 50s clothes because they are quite kitsch don't you think?
