Supergirl boots!

Supergirl boots!

These arrived this morning… a pair of Roc boots which look distinctly like the ones Supergirl wore in that cheesy 1980’s movie.

I got them off of eBay for £5. Am reserving judgment on them until I can make them work with an outfit. Will keep you posted.

What Is Charity Chic All About?

I adore old things. They have their own secret story. I definitely have my mother to thank for this! I grew up in Harborne, an area of Birmingham in England which had a… Continue reading
