Friday Frocktacular!


This isn't the frock I intended to wear today!
I actually really wanted to wear the fabulous frock that Desiree sent me, and even had it on.....but realised it is just far to nice and possibly too fragile to wear to bloody old work! So I changed frocks and kept everything else on!
You'll just have to wait another day for it, it's spectacular!!
Frock-vintage, opshopped
Hat-vintage, from darling Desiree
Sunglasses-vintage, fromscrummy Sarah
Tights-from lucious Vix
Bag-vintage cosmetics case, Shabby Chic Market
I came home to a wee parcel from our lovely friend Nicole, who has just moved to Brisbane! In it was this lovely blue ring, and these amazing earrings, below!!!
She's such a gorgeous girl!!!
Thanks, lovely!
Label shot for you label whores!


Story!
As you know (or may not, if you're a new reader), I work with lots of blokes; I do inventory/factory data entry and am in and out of a store all day. Anyway, they don't say much about my attire, usually, or really notice. But today, I was strolling down an aisle to collect some paperwork, and one of the young bucks said that I looked like "I was married to a President, with the short hair and (he waved his arm around towards my hat)..." I said, "o, you think I look a little Jackie O? I'll take that as a compliment", and he said that it wasn't intended as such, it was meant to be an insult. I wasn't perturbed at all, whatever, little boy, and then another chap piped up with "what do you know about fashion, faggot?!", which made me laugh...and then I realised that he had just defended my honour, whether he intended to or not!
How sweet!

Vic said...

LOVE the blue ring & those tights, wow!

Nelly said...

Maybe the young lad had hat and tight envy coz you rock them both

Miss Claire said...

Haha, those boys. I like the sound of the second lad! I remember one of my year 7 boy violin students saying to me "you like wearing floral, don't you miss?"!! I couldn't believe such a small, pubescent boy would notice the patterns of my clothes. Of course, the rest of his group teased him for it! Bless.

That dress with the tights is perfection!! I need some floral tights if I like floral that much!!!

LOOOOVE the hat on you! Mwah!!

PS. Chomby just ate more of a plastic bag today. I am furious! Trying to do everything I can to keep food moving through him so he doesn't clog up again. Going to have to ditch the plastic bags, I think.

Woohoo, did you know that dress is see-through, are you TRYING to inflame me on a Friday morning with a glimpse of gorgeous thigh?!
Marvellous frock, lovely colour and dreamy sleeves.
And of course you rock those tights and hat!

PS. Oh those lads... They are probably scared to bloody death of you and in love with you in equal measure (a bit like me - hahahahaha! xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx)

Miss Peregrin said...

Fab outfit! My fav bits are the tights & the great hat! Teehee, love the story about the blokes at work as well.

Dearest Helga,
"What does he know about fashion" indeed, is the little boy not aware that he's talking to the undisputed queen of quirk...he should bloody well kneel before your greatness :)
I'm loving your outfit, especially the hat...I LOVE the hat...a lot!
I've knocked up the earrings and I'll be popping them in the post together with another frock I thought you should have. I've still not found the other shirt for G yet (and to this I say: shite in a bucket), I'm getting quite irate at this cause I know I've seen it recently...just can't remember where, argh!
Lot's of love,
Jennie

I'm constantly jealous of your tights. Todays are amazing and they make your dress pop! Hilarious about the guys at work!

Vix said...

Curtise is dead right, that dress is ratehr see-thru', you saucy minx!!
I can't believe how those tights are wearing so well, they seem to look better and better.
What an idiotic little faggot, if you can't say anything nice then shut the feck up. Obviously his mother never taught him any manners.
Love you!

Well, you just look AMAZING from head to toe, amor. That frock is divine and I ADORE those tights and bag - and the HAT rocks my world!! I love the surprising colour combo that is fresh and bright and gorgeous - I simply MUST learn some colour-mojo from you and stop being so matchy matchy predictable all the time!

That pendejo didnt know who he was talking too, the other guy put him straight.

WendyB said...

Love turquoise and red together!

Pull Your Socks Up! said...

I have some serious moisture issues going on with this amazing ensemble!!!!!!!!!!!!! The dress with Vix's tights, the hat and bag is a frickin' ingenious combo that get's 10/10 from me. I like a bit of see-through - isn't it funny how it doesn't seem see-through when you're wearing tights? It's like there's an extra barrier between the outside world and the special bits:)). Fek you're gorgeous and I love the 2nd guy's comeback - he's got some class. And manners. Gawd I just knew that hat was made for you!! Saturday night bum squeezies to you love xxxxxxxooooooooooo

Devil made in Heaven said...

Little boys don't know anything about fashion. :) A young boy at my job (a dedicated follower of fashion) is always making fun of me and my clothes. I don't care. I love my outfits!
And your red shoes are to die for!

Bonnie said...

Really Helga, you are quite fabulous you know. I think it's the hat that is channeling Jackie O, it's divine!

xo, Bonnie
