Sometimes I take a fancy to a particular bag for a few days.....as is clearly the case here!
This little case is so adorable! I only found it again whilst rummaging in the garage for something else entirely.....and I was reminded me that I still have boxes of my precious playthings out there!
We've found someone who will be able to build a storage unit for my room, and then, fingers crossed and panties untwisted, I'll be able to have everything back in my room and wonderfully organised!
(For new readers; we had to shift everything out of our house for 5 weeks whilst earthquake repairs were made on our house. G transformed the garage into a replica of my dressing room for me, the sweetie! We have since moved back in, but there is still quite a bit out there, as we decided it was good time to renovate as well!)
There is the question of what to do with my unholy collection of shoes; the crates I was keeping them in will no longer suffice.
But that's just one small thing to consider!
These pix are from Sunday..... I was out on a nice long walkie, feeling ever so virtuous and not at all hungover from band practice, when I had a text from Vanessa about a sale at Camelot Costume Hire!
I've never walked so fast in my life!
I raced home, got showered and frocked up, and off we went!
Frock-made by moi out of 60's fabric that was opshopped
Belt-opshopped in Australia
Fishnets-opshopped (I know!)
Earrings-gift from G
Necklace-made up from bits from Nevada & London.
Humpers had been rolling around in the mud, the disgraceful little beast!
But isn't he a beautiful little tiger?!
Albeit a crusty tiger!
There were quite a few people there ripping into the goodies, but I managed to pick up 3 hats (the white one has been fecked up for a costume, so it's really the bits I'm scoring, including a lovely old hat pin!), a strange rabbit fur coronet kind of thing, an emerald green evening bag (not pictured!), 3 frocks and a souvenir kimono from some pacific or Japanese island (not quite sure)!
Not a bad haul, all things considered!
