Wiggle when you walk. It's good for you.

Sometimes you have to wear pants so tight you can't sit down. 

...I didn't want to sit down anyway. So there.

Two new bakelite bangles added to my collection! The two faceted red ones on the bottom. Found at an amazing estate sale, in an amazing house, for 50 cents.

I should add, since I get asked quite a bit, that these shoes are crazy comfortable. I never thought wooden shoes would be something I would wear for days and days in a row without having to soak my tootsies at the end of the day!

As always chook, you look divine! And those pants don't look very tight, they are super modest actually!

Why sit, when you can sashay around in such great pants! I feel the same about many of my dresses, when they are s TAD snug in the rib area, although usually it's also accompanied by the motto "breathing is overrated". Haha xx fran

He he! So funny! I love the lengths us vintage girls go to, to wear our clothes! Too small? Wear a cincher! Too big? Make do and mend! Too tight? Suck it in!!! :D
YOu look amazing. xoxo

Wendy said...

There is something about wearing a fabulous outfit that helps put a wiggle in our walk, I think. ;) When we're happy with how we look, we're definitely more likely to strut, as well we should!

I like the top and the shoes best! Just bought some great red clogs myself from http://www.lottafromstockholm.co.uk/clogs?gclid=CPGj0O3f4qoCFYgf4QodXAgj8Q
based in London.
They're so comfortable!

Love those shoes. They're so beautiful and well done on the bakelite. It's always even more exciting when its a real bargain :D

Kerry said...

Haha I've got some checked capri pants I am yet to wear for a whole day as there is a little TOO much wiggle in my walk in them, if you know what I mean!

But these look fantastic, even if you can't sit down. Definitely worth it.

Tasha said...

Fabulous outfit. Can't believe the price on the Bakelite, wowza. Those capris are great, love the rose applique, what fun!

Your top seems to have a lovely pattern running through it.

sarah said...

Oh, those pants are too cute! You look so glamorous. I love those bangles, too! Perfect, as always!

Della said...

I love all the bangles! I have a hopelessly large collection of bracelets and bangles, I think they are my favorite type of jewelry.

Love the pants, much better than sitting down!

Emma Robertson said...

Those pants look amazing on you! The whole outfit is wonderful. I've wanted a pair of those shoes forever, maybe I'll have to splurge sometime and get them.

xo,

Those shoes are SO cute! And what a great find on those bangles :)

Chance Upon Bliss said...

I wish I could pull off high waisted pants like that! I have problems that spanx can't even fix, lol. Super adorable.

Kezzie said...

You look amazing! I love all the red accents on your outfit! That made me laugh about the trousers! I feel that way about a lot of trousers- I am a peculiar shape that means things are really tight around my bottom and thighs but miles too big for my waist!

Lauren said...

Ooh I love a good estate sale. The ones around here have been duds, lately, but I keep hoping there'll be a good one soon!

I really like that top! The pants are cute, too, but I probably need pants I can sit in! ;-)

Ohh you have a pair of Mimi's!!
I have them in cream white and gosh, I've been running in them all summer! I love them. And you are so right -I never thought a pair of high heeled and platformed shoes could be that comfortable!
You look stunning in this outfit. Reminds me of a pair of capris I have that I can't sit down in either; I should wear them soon! ;D
