Roller girl

Today it was so nice out, and even thought I had a 9 hour workday I was in a great mood thanks to the lovely sun and of course a killer pair of white vintage roller skates. I spotted them as soon as I walked into work, and they were my size! I had absolutely no reason to buy them, but every reason to wear them most of the day. So yeah, I wore roller skates at work, what of it?

One customer commented that I looked like I'm part of a vintage delivery service, which I think would be just about the most awesome thing. Need a party dress pronto? I will roll it right to you. Although the only reason I didn't fall flat on my bum is because we have carpet at work, and soon as I stepped out on the pavement I was a lost cause. Hence my reason not to buy them: I might break an arm.

I hope everyone has a nice weekend ahead, I know I do, I'm going to California! For a whole week, sunny SoCal, so I hope you won't get sick of posts every day! I've packed some pretty cute things, including a little sailor dress ;)

Old skates look a million times more awesome than new skates, don't they? They just look techy or something these days... can one even get roller skates rather than roller blades anymore?

They suit you well! I love the hat :-)

Yep, rollerskates are still available but it's true, they do look very techie- I'd love a pair like these. I'm off to a roller disco tonight- they've become quite popular here in UK. Last time I went, I couldn't move for 3 days afterwards!

I can see why you couldn't resist a go on these. I get tempted to get a pair every spring but then I remember scraped knees and aching bottom and think again ;-)

Enjoy your time in California! Can't wait to see your pics :-)

You are always a ray of sunshine in your pictures with that big smile of yours. I love these shots. It looks like you had fun with your skates!

Ohh, you look so cute! I love the hat and the roller skates!

I just saw a pair like that on Etsy. I'm reading the novel Derby Girl, which gives you a bit of a skating fever.

Ah, so cute! I'd love a vintage delivery service! I bet you you could pull that off in downtown Portland. Give those bike messengers a run (skate?) for their money!

Solanah, what size are the skates? If we're talking 9ish, I'd over to Vancouver and buy 'em. I can always use an excuse to get to your Value Village!

This is an adorable outfit! I just got a pair of capris for the summer - such a hot weather staple.

I love your blouse!

I've been wanting to try roller skating again, but I went to the roller rink last summer and ended up with a rather swollen hand. I'm a bit wary of skates now, but they're so fun!

You look so cute!

I love your roller skates, i am completely rubbish in them and can't even stand up without wobbling and falling over straight away!

Dizzy Dame said...

Aw, sorry Lise, they're a 7 :( But maybe we'll get lucky and get more in other sizes, I would love to have a whole shelf of roller skates!
