Super Lilli

Jeans: Svoboda
Boots: Duo Boots
Jacket: Target
“Tubeway Armies”: Gaye Abandon
I’m breaking my own red boots over jeans = superhero rule today, but I’m sort of wishing for superpowers, so I’m living vicariously through my wardrobe.
I’ve been thinking that I’d like to be able to travel in time and space – forward and back. Oh, and I’d like to arrive frocked, so no Time Traveller’s Wife for me (incidentally, great book).
It’d be great to be able to visit extraordinary moments in history, but I’d also like to know what was in my own future. Plus, I could always be at the forefront of trends, man!
What kind of superpowers would you like? Flight? Invisibility? Superstrength?
It’s been cold and rainy in Melbourne over the last few days – too grim to go outdoors and take many wardrobe photos, but I’ve got a couple of new items to show off when I can. Keep your eyes peeled!

  1. I'd have to say invisibility, because I'm secretly obsessed with the minuatae of everyday life and I'd love to spy on everyone. Also a superior sense of balance so I could wear those ridiculous plastic high heels I own that I can't walk even one step in. And then I'd stop tripping on footpaths too.

    Boots over jeans = awesomesauce.

  2. I would like to fly! So that I could travel the world to visit my family and go shopping very often!

    I am trying to post in English on my blog, feel free to visit sometimes 😉

  3. LOL, yeah invisibility would be pretty cool. I certainly have a few people I'd like to spy on!

    I love the idea of flying too! I'm a bit terrified of heights (I have this weird urge to fling myself off great heights) but sometimes I have dreams that I'm flying, and it feels WONDERFUL!

    Thankyou so much, CDC! You have a great looking blog too, and you've got some cute stuff in your etsy shop!

  4. Oh, I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this outfit! (Are the capitals a bit too much)? You know, one of my all time favourite sartorial combination (and one that I fervently hope will never go out of fashion) is the jeans over boots combo. Oh, and my super power of choice? I hated the movie 'Jumper' with a passion but I think I'll still have to go with teleportation (so useful for visiting dear but faraway friends). Otherwise, powers of supreme persuasion would be great. Very Jedi mind trick, I know, but I could use it myself and get a pair of glossy red duo boots which I've been openly coveting…

  5. My superpower of choice would be to have a mega-metabolism…. able to eat chocolate bars without an extra kilo, able to down gallons of red without a hangover or extra inches, able to eat yummy cakes without a single expanse of the belt!

    If only!!!

  6. teleportation! to be anywhere in the world in a matter of seconds would be so amazing. and those boots are fresh to death!

  7. Teleportation, of course !! Just a snap and I'm on a white sand beach, in Thailand, only for the week-end…
    Or to see my parents, at 800 km from me…
    I definitely say teleportation.
    You are a great superheroin ! (is it the right word ?)

  8. Teleportation seems to be a popular choice, although I love Cashless Cashmere's Jedi Persuading idea, too… but you'd only use it for good. And shopping. Right?

    Decadent_Hedonist – Himself actually HAS that superpower (bastard). Sometimes I feel like Mrs Spratt (i.e. "Jack Spratt could eat no fat, his wife could eat no lean, and so between the two of them they licked the platter clean"). Except, of course, that Himself can eat EVERYTHING!
