Shoe Shine and soft landing


Shoes for Bella's Shoe Shine at her blog The Citizen Rosebud. These are my go-to shoes for bad-assing with feminine floral rockin' sox 'em delicacy. And they were thrifted for a penny X about 1200 = $12.00 I think. Steve Madden. Worn here camouflage style. Thanks, Bella, for this meet-up. And huge thanks as well for PART DEUX of the interview with Roz. If you haven't seen it yet, I know you'll love to find out more about Rosalind of Clothes, Cameras and Coffee. Bella makes things happen - she's an incredible force for positive change. Can't wait to see what's next from her...!

This second outfit looks waaay better in motion than static and minus the I-think-there's-a-piece-of-sand-in-my-mouth expression. The obi-style belt is high and in combination with the vertical stripe my legs feel like little trees. The roots of the tree are these clonky crappy-new shoes, so-named because although they were purchased retail the quality poor; the clonky part I like. Everything in both of these outfits was thrifted,  except for the teal tights and the crappy-new shoes.

Thanks for your response to VOGOFF! And again, huge hugs to all the amazing women who participated. I'm including a small cover image if you feel like putting it in your sidebar. If you want a different size, let me know and I'll make one for you.

And just copy and paste the following link address:

The weekend is almost upon us. Are you giddy with excitement? I'm feeling the void of getting VOGOFF out, a soft landing, the puzzlement that comes with the curtain-drop on the final night of a stage performance. What's next? What's next?...

  2. What next? Well, you deserve a rest, but I'm sure Miz Bagg will tell you what's next when she gets back. You can stomp her into submission with those fab fiesta shoes! For me, I'm off to Tex-ass on Friday. Pray for me!

  11. I think you should put your feet in those fancy shoes up and take a bit of a well-deserved rest after all the work you put into VOGOFF!

    Everytime I see you in a suspender-clip skirt I think "I need to try that". One of these days I'll remember to do it ;)

  17. After that triumphant edition of VOG OFF you need to round up the girls, drink cocktails and then raid the thrift shops - taking plenty of photos on the way.
    I think I need to steal your shoes - every pair - you find the best stuff! x

  23. Those shoes worn camouflage style are so vibrant, lovely and original just like you Mel! I love the outfits too, the oriental silks and long lines. Divine.

  29. I've FINALLY had a moment to (almost) get-caught-up- with-everything. VOGOFF is brilliant. So much fun and artistry. I'm totally inspired for the next issue.

    Your outfits always thrill me. Yes. Always. I saw a picture in French Vogue Collections Fall/Winter 2014 that looked like you. The model had the same hair and demeanor. I'll try to capture it and send it to you.

    Have a wonderful weekend with Mr. O. Thank you for sharing all your "juice and joy", as Gerard Manley Hopkins once said. XXOO

  34. And again... what did we ever do without you, Melanie? I can only speak for myself... I sat around, waiting for you.

    LOVE the second outfit especially - I am a wide, stripy pants fan. And a Melanie fan.
