"the sex is in the heel"

That's a quote from Lola in the movie Kinky Boots, a cross-dressing cabaret dancer who helps transform a failing men's shoe business into a thriving heels for men fashion house. Such is the transformative power of these shoes, which make my every step feel like the hardcore vixen from my last post.

I guess by now you've figured out my outfit formula:
vintage dress + cardigan + mary-janes/boots + hosiery = Melina's ready for anything

*cardigan: banana republic via yard sale
*Vintage 1970s dress: gleaned.
*earrings: my favorite ever by Tawapa.

Thanks for indulging more of my narcissism everyone,


  1. LOL Sounds like we use the same outfit ingredients. The print of the dress is extra gorgeous!

  2. You look so beautiful (as always!). Love that, and I'll have to check out that movie, sounds interesting! In re: your comment on my post, that is not my house! If I had the skills to put that together, I probably would be working as a designer and not blogging! Very sweet! ;)
