I used to have a pair of Viv pirate boots; they were black suede and leather flats, from the 80's I think. F-ing gorgeous and priced ridiculously low at this great vintage store in London. Then some BITCH at school nabbed them out of my locker during gym class.






I miss my vivies.....

Are you sure?

Come to think of it, mine might have been fake. At the time I bought them, I wasn't too informed knockoff-wise so I'm not sure. The straps looked different than in the pictures of the updated version, they were a little thiner than the ones pictured and not as pointy at the ends.

When I read this thread before, I just assumed that she had changed them a little, but now I have my doubts. Maybe it's a good thing that they were stolen.

Are these them, or just similar? And what's happening with the bidding situation?
