Your daily dose of pretty: it's just a jump to the left

Talk about awesome - The Rocky Horror Picture Show was on TV tonight! I haven't watched it for years, and it's still a bundle of fun. I don't think I ever get tired of Tim Curry's wonderfully campy performance as Frank-n-Furter and I still know the Time Warp off by heart (it was all I could do not to jump up and dance along - that would have impressed the kids ... NOT!).

But the other thing I spotted tonight, while I was watching, were the adorable shoes on some of the chorus line/guests. Look here:

If you've been reading this blog for more than say, five seconds, you know I love me some mary janes.

(On a side note, I never liked Columbia, her voice was too squeaky - and those eyebrows! Magenta was my favourite.)

Anyway, I did a bit of searching to see if I could find some shoes like those - which I did - but along the way I was side-tracked by these:

and somehow they fit perfectly with the theme!

I suspect I'm a little too close to 40 to get away with these, but 14 Year Old Daughter is going to love them. (Mental note: do not show these to 14 Year Old Daughter.)

The Funtasma By Pleaser Women's Contessa-57 Platform Mary Jane is $44.95 on Endless, and currently only available in US sizes 6, 11 and 12 - so 14 Year Old Daughter can't have them anyway!

What do you think my pretties? I little OTT perhaps? And can you still remember the Time Warp?


  1. Love that show! Why can't you wear those shoes. They look beautiful and would look adorable on you.
