Superhero Inspiration

Let's see - Indestructible Bracelets to deflect all negativity and mediocrity, and blinged-up X-ray specs that allow me to see into the very souls of my enemies, check
The gold (and silver) Lasso of Truth, which also doubles as a belt when not being used to force all the bullsh**ters out there to fess up, check
Attached shorts under skirt to maintain dignity and self-respect when flying through the air in pursuit of bad guys, and comfortable, yet stylish, sandals in case a ground chase is required, check
Yep, I think I'm ready to go save the world now...or maybe my neighbourhood...or maybe just a kitten up a tree.  No job is too small.
I'm wearing:  tank and cardigan - retail, golf skirt - thrifted, chain belt - The Sentimentalist, silver cuff bracelet - Forever 21, blue, black and beige cuff bracelet created by Debra Rapoport

And now, for your viewing pleasure.....
Many Thanks to Lynda Carter, in the guise of Wonder Woman from the 1970's television series, for the inspiration for today's outfit.  I love this video of her using a skateboard to pursue the bad guys.  It would be so cool to be able to spin around and suddenly be wearing roller skates and protective padding!!

  4. You are my Saturday Superhero Inspiration! The cuff created by Debra couldn't be more perfect for your world saving activities. Have you created your own superwoman series???

  5. That is a really professional super heroin outfit! I see some cool rings there. Those might come useful for coordination when throwing a directed punch.

    Can I call out for you too when in need? Do you take distress calls from oversees? Do you have a call center set up?

    You are a great inspiration! I've been dreaming of becoming a part time superhero for ages.
