Only one snag, which I realised I should have foreseen - Miss L Fire's size 8s are a touch on the small size for me, as I discovered to my cost when I ordered a pair of boots a couple of years ago. And being the largest size they do, there's not much I can do about it. My platforms were also very tight around the heel, and don't have any elastic in them, just a thinner bit of leather. Still, with a bit of wear (probably around the house, with a pair of wet socks on underneath!) they are bound to stretch and probably fit like a glove in the end. Fingers crossed!
So, without further ado, here is a (terrible quality) picture of today's outfit!
I'm wearing my (previously) deadstock Swirl dress, which is all patterned in green, brown, orange and yellow flowers, and my new shoes! Here's a closeup of the dress print:
The shoes are a much brighter yellow than the picture on ASOS would suggest, and they aren't a perfect match to the yellow on my dress, but it's close enough! I accessorised with my green bakelite earrings and bangle, but I have decided I simply must get a yellow set now. I must!
Anyway, the second super thing was a packet of postcards from the lovely Katie of What Katie Did.
Here's the original:

I'm wearing one of the new CC09 bras and a pair of the CC09 stretch seamed stockings, plus a vintage girdle, which you sadly can't see.
I have to say I am so proud of myself for this achievement, as a pin-up model, you feel you've really 'made it' if you get to work with WKD. I was over the moon when Katie emailed me to say that she was going with her husband to Normany for the D-Day celebrations, taking the jeep I posed on with them, and that she'd had these postcards made up. I didn't know if I'd end up on any official WKD stuff, so I was chuffed to bits. And apparently the neightbours were convinced I was Dita. If only my life were one tenth as exciting as the jealousy-inspiring snippets she posts on Twitter! Still, I am pleased as punch, and I hope to have more to show off soon!
