Going To A Go-Go




When the postman called round with a huge box from the States addressed to me on Friday I could hardly contain myself, but being a good girl I waited until I'd finished packing the stock into the van before ripping open the packaging.


Man, was it worth the wait! Inside were these incredible 1960s go-go boots which fit like a dream,


The biggest, bastard massive Indian pendant in the world. 


And a whole heap of bangles, including this beauty Vonda had made especially for me.




Vintage Colourful Creations mini dress (Sarah Misfit), Roselle of London fringed suede jerkin (Second to None, Walsall 2009), 1960s leather bag (Age UK, blogger day out in Chesterfield), vintage sunglasses (20p man at the car boot sale)

I wore the jewellery all weekend rattling around Bridgnorth's vintage fair like one of Michael Eavis's Glastonbury cows.


My distinctive clank failed to alert the two women talking about me when I was in a toilet cubicle. I love that Kinky Melon lady one said to the other She doesn't care about what people think and wears anything. Too right, lady. I love a compliment as much as the next person but if nobody ever said a word I'd still dress the same.


Sometimes I have to laugh when I catch sight of myself in a mirror, look at me in micro minis with wall plaques as jewellery. If I didn't know me and saw myself in the street I'd want to be my friend.



Hope you had a bostin' weekend.
Thanks for all your fabulous comments on my last post.
See you soon!

  6. I love your colourful mini-dress and your fabulous jewelry, Kinky Melon Lady! Your assortment of rings and bracelets id amazing. Those vintage sunglasses look fab and your lipstick and nailpolish are pretty colours. That really is a massive pendant. You're sporting a lot of green in this Saint Patrick's Day Weekend outfit. It looks lovely.

  14. WOW! Amazing coloured boots but I love the fringed jerkin most of all- we used to have one of those that belonged to my Mum when we were kids (and matching skirt- they were so much fun! We always wore them for dress up! Pity we got rid of them!x

  22. OMG those shoes though! I love them! gosh can you imagine the previous owner dancing about all night in such fab boots. And lucky those ladies were saying nice things about you in the loo. I think i would have yelled very angrily from the cubicle if they had about me. I'm not very gracious with slaggers.
    Wonderful look all over Vix! I hope the weather is warming up for you!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Isn't that the best thing to be able to say about yourself; that you'd want to be friends with you? I think that is a fine compliment! (I think the same about me!) It isn't just how you dress though, Kinky Melon lady, it's because you are smiley and friendly and chatty and fabulous - you could wear American Tan tights and trainers, and I'd still want to be your mate!
    That said, you do look completely bloody wonderful, you rock a mini like no one else, and those go-go boots are just the bee's knees, I love 'em!
    I adore your distinctive clank, looking forward to hearing it in person before too long. Love ya! xxxx

    ReplyDelete
  24. You are definitely Bostin in that outfit. Lucky you with your parcel!

    You have fab legs, don't spoil them with American tan tights. Ever. At least I know you'll never grow old gracefully so American tan is unlikely!

  25. Aaaaahhhhhh! Those boots! They are killing me with their utter magnificence! You have outdone yourself with this outfit. Clanking like a cow? Who cares when you look that good! XXX

  27. I have a real love of green footwear, my Mum says it started as a tiny girl when I would beg for green shoes (not so common for kids in the 1970s as you would think). I love your boots, I love go-go boots full stop. p.s. You look fantastic in the dress. My friend couldnt believe it was the same dress that had been hanging in my room, she said it looked amazing and totally different on you haha. V xxx

I love overhearing what people really think of you, (especially when it's positive), it can be so enlightening. I can see why you're so excited about the boots, they are so up your street. Big exciting parcels are the best xxx

  39. Those splendiferous boots are obviously made for you to wear on St. Patrick's Day -- so gloriously green, they are!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Oh Lordy, those boots are making me weak at the knees. They have found the best possible home with you, but I secretly wish I could wear them, even just for a minute :)

    How can you be in a sleeveless dress and bare legs over there when we are still layered up in sweaters and coats? Not Fair, I say!

    This is one of my top 5 favourite outfits of yours, and I am so glad I know such a fabulous dame like you.

    ReplyDelete
  41. How is that possible? The boots and purse match!!!!!!!

    If my eyes aren't playing tricks on me, I do believe that bracelet is made from single earrings. I'm stealing that idea!

    ReplyDelete
  42. If I didn't know you and saw you in the street I'd want to steal your boots and your jewelry. Oh just kidding, I'm much too nice to do that, but I would sure be envious!

    ReplyDelete
  43. When I saw these boots on you the first thought was "wow!". They are amazing - style and colour. The whole ensemble is stunning too - from the mini dress to the gigantic pendant.

  44. Wow, Vix those boots are so beautiful. Love them.

  47. How great it is to want to be your own friend! I too want to be your friend (and I know I am already a friend of mine). :)
    These boots are blowing my mind! Green is just such a special color to me, and this shape it's AMAZING (I adore the purse too). Love the outfit, and you are so adorable. I imagine lots of people want to be your friend, if they are not too timid to start talking to you. :)

    ReplyDelete
  48. Oh my goodness my heart skipped two beats when I saw those magnificent, incredible shoes! Oh the colour and style! You look just amazing in them and your jewellery is fantastic too. I get the same sort of feeling when I catch a glimpse of myself in a mirror or shop window reflection - it feels great to wear whatever you want and feel brilliantly fabulous in it - nothing like it. I can only imagine how fantastic you feel in your outfit here with your new shoes!

    ReplyDelete
  49. LOVE it, you absolute beauty. :)

  54. Wow, that Kinky Melon lady is a total fox in this outfit! And she does have a distinctive clank. That, and a great big happy grin. Those boots are one of the best vintage pieces I've ever seen and that dress is fabulous. Look how brown your legs are and your hair looks lovely. It must be so exciting getting these amazingly thoughtful gifts from all over the world. How nice to overhear compliments, especially when they are true. It's the Vix Effect! I might have to write a paper on it and submit it to some scientific body. We all need a bit of it! Xxxxxx
