Teenage Daydream

Today I ran into Tinde at a local sushi buffet, and she told me she had seen a lovely pair of boots at a flea market nearby in my size. Because it wasn't too busy at the office, I extended my lunch hour and walked to the flea market. That's where these babies were waiting for me!



They are Libby 16 Plate boots with Victim heel by Fantasy Shoes (who make shoes for Pennangalan). There's slight wear, like some oxidization on the plates, but there are no scuffs on the sides of the soles and the heels are only a little worn. They fit me just right and all of the straps are intact. And the price? 20 euros!

The reason for the title of the post, teenage daydream, is that I've been lusting after these boots since I was a teen. The price is just so high (180 euros and shipping on top) that I've been waiting for a second hand pair to come by. Waiting for something like 12 years that is ;P So thank you so much Tinde for pointing these out for me, I'm so happy <3 They will look gorgeous with the scale mail corset I'm working on!

  5. Miksi kirppareilla on vain parittomia ja kulahtaneita Eccoja kun mä olen ostoksilla?! Olisin nyt kateudesta neonvihreä jos en jo omistaisi noita samoja upeita kaunoisia.:D Hinnasta olen kyllä hieman kade, omiani en sentään tuollaiseen puoli-ilmaiseen ota tästä -hintaan saanut, vaikka käytettynä nekin hankin.

    1. Mä käyn vielä tosi vähän kirppiksillä nykyään, ja en oo koskaan aiemmin sattunut samaan aikaan Tinden kanssa sushille, monta osasta osui just kohdalleen! Joskus löytyy helmiä, toisinaan on paikat täynnä pelkkää ylihintaista kakkelia ;D

    1. Thank you! I have almost a similar pair with platform wedge soles and I was surprised that these are almost as easy to walk in as the wedges :) The chunky heel helps a lot!

    1. Thank you! This model is so versatile, I was just thinking that I could even sell my old wedge boots because any outfit they work for, these would work too, and for even more classic goth looks too. The wedges are too cyber for some looks, but these ones are not :)

  11. In my late teens I had a pair that were similar, but flat platforms, and without the metal bits. Ah, the nostalgia! I don't know how I never tripped and died in them though, I am so clumsy! Yours look awesome!

    1. Thanks! I think many of the boots look more intimidating than they are, flatforms are quite stable (except on cobblestones, never walk on cobblestones!) and these have such chunky heel that they don't wobble like some stilettos do.

  12. How lucky! I've loved this style since I was a kid too.
