Well Slap My Arse and Call Me Cindy!

Why the happy dance?
Oh, no reason in particular ... just a bit of a Sunday jig.


The Stylist and I went to a flea market an hour before closing to see if we could scrounge some bargains.
We didn't have to go far.



We found a mystery pile of shoes dumped right on our parking bay.
By an absolute freak chance, they were the right sizes for The Stylist and I, so we picked out a few pairs we liked and left the rest for someone else to poke through.
Maybe a vendor dropped them in the early morning darkness?
Buyer regret?
Who knows, who cares?
They were dumped so we grabbed them.
Man I just love free stuff!!


I swear I've been looking for a pair of 1940s-style booties for winter - these are black, suede, free and they fit - bingo!


Sarah Misfit has been spending some well-deserved  down time on The Whore, which reminds me how much I've been neglecting my couch.
I'm rectifying the situation.




1950s cotton blouse and earrings - Etsy
Purple velvet shorts - BOODWAH (which has 20% off during February!)
Pink flower clip - borrowed from The Stylist
Skull clips - craft market
Blue flower ring - ballet shop
Shoes - freeeeeeeeee!!!
Black hair regrowth - by me
I hope you've all had an UTTERLY fabulous weekend darlinks!
See you at Patti's Visible Monday party.
Molti baci,
Desiree xo

Those free suede booties are quite a score-- perfect for your hot legggggzzzz!!!

Frocktasia said...

When I first started going to car boot sales I was still drinking and would usually require a marathon sleep-in on Sunday mornings. I'd never hit the sales before midday and quite often near closing time, one of the benefits being that by then the sellers were slashing prices left right and center and often chucking in free stuff when you bought something.
Those suede booties are fabulous, I would have grabbed them too....bingo indeed!
I love your pin-up stylee couch posing, I think Sarah may have kicked off yet another trend in the blogoshere ;)
Awesome shorts, purple velvet, YOWZA!
Lot's of love,
Jennie

I could just picture you tap dancing and swirling away on a staircase behind Fred Astaire now I've seen you dancing Desiree. What a find! I love it so much when things like that happen. And I love seeing your bright sofa and wall of women. I said somewhere else that your wall and my daughter's bedroom walls are inspiring me, I haven't actually done anything yet though! But the plan is hatching. xx

Rah! Those booties were FREE? They are dreams on sticks of dreaminess. What a boon!

Loving you from a far. I had a dream and you and your Bella and Phoenix featured in it- even by the time I realized it was a dream, I was stoked to be so near to you. So here's an electronic virtual hug- it will have to do for now. -Bella the Citizen Rosebud

MY GOSH!! Free shoes? FREE SHOES? How could you get any more lucky?
You look fantastic and I loved your little jig dance. *hehehe*

I dunno 'bout Cindy because you are definitely a Desiree, but now I know where those booties came from. You DO have a shoe fairy!

Melanie said...

Slap! Well, Cindy, you certainly know how to kick up your heels for no reason at all! Which is the only way to celebrate, gulp, FREE SHOES!!! If Sarah's Whore and your couch got together, I wonder what their children would look like... Lazy Boys? Never!

Stacey said...

Ahhh, look at your fabulous legs! Those booties were such a good score - I can't wait until my shoes all fit me again! I am in total love with your couch too, it just looks so comfortable & crocheted. :)
