And I've told you before, only you know the score



I am so pleased you enjoyed that little blast from my past last post!!
I love how those pix make me look far more glam and rockstar-ish that I could ever be in real life!
I've got a few more posts worth of amusing Swamp Donkey's gig pix to come, from the early 2000's....there's some eye opening outfits, and I'm not just talking about mine!


I am Her Royal Matchiness!

These pix are from Sunday, when a nasty cold wind served to remind us that it is still Spring...
Bring on the Summer, pretty please!


Frock-from her sexiness, Curtise
Coat-70's, gift from a friend
Hat-60's, from her funkiness, Vix (note how perfectly it goes with my frock!!!)
Tights-Trade Me
Shoes-Trade Me
Handbga-60's, school fair
Sunglasses-50's, from her loveliness, Sue
Necklace-gift from G
Earrings-60's, opshopped

You do look rather deliciously regal and of course a matchy-match made in heaven! I had forgotten all about that frock, but it was waiting for the fabulous hat from Vix, obviously they were meant to be together. I am very taken with that sheepskin jacket too, it looks snuggly and has a great 70s groove going on!
You are always my favourite rock star, and I am looking forward to seeing some more band pics.
LOVE! xxxxxxxx

What a perfectly wonderful vision to be treated to on a shitty Wednesday morning.
That Curtise-found frock, Sue's specs and hat are superb together and the coat is amazing, I want it. How fabularse your side-swept hair looks, too.
Can't wait for more rock star photos!
Love! Vix

Sue said...

You sure are the High Priestess of Matchy matchy!!! You do it so well. Your hat is gorgeous, just how do you hide all your hair inside it??

Louise Mc said...

Just so much perfect in this outfit. I love the colours, and the hat, and the specs. Divine as always. X

joyatri said...

You're making me develop a foot fetish with your tights/shoes close-ups. Blue is used in marketing as a color that suggests stability and confidence. So I'm sure that your subjects have a great deal of trust in you.

Forest City Fashionista said...

All hail the Magnificent Mistress of Matchiness! Love the 70's coat, and those are some fab sunnies.

Sara said...

I've recently discovered you and your blog and have been trawling through your archives. You are so fabulous! You are confident and original, and you seem to have so much fun getting dressed. You are now my style icon. As in, when I put outfits together, I shall think: 'what would helga wear'? Not to copy you, because you are one and only (and I don't have your fantastic wardrobe), but to inject some more fun and who-cares into my daily clothes choices. I know look forward to getting dressed for work. I also love the fact that you're my age (-ish, I'm 37), you love sixties hair and vintage clothes, wine and food, and don't want children. We're kindred spirits of sorts. Sorry for the super long comment. Just felt the need to share. PS: I love those glasses!! ~ Sara

thorne garnet said...

yeah, yeah, yeah, you look good in blue. While everyone else is taken by how pretty you look, I freaking in love with the hardwear on that door behind you. Be still my heart, the knocker is a hand.

MistressCatgirl said...

lucy joy said...

Nobody does it better! You couldn't get a better hat/frock match if you searched the planet. I love it when that happens.
I wonder if you wore match-perfect clothes as a child?
I hope to not miss your posts now you're back on my blogroll. It'd be criminal to miss the rock/sex goddess photographs - PHWOAR!!!

Fiona said...

I've a confession! I dreamt about you last night,(no, NOT like that!) is that a bit weird? I hadn't even read the post below until just now so you looking utterly rockingly ravishing had nothing to do with it.
In my dream you & I met in an Aussie motel in the outback somewhere. You were wearing a maroon mac with a hood (sorry) and I'd forgotten that I'd left my baby in the car, I was just going to fetch it and the sodding alarm went off. Can anyone explain or am I just barking? x

Renia said...

You look amazing! I love your outfit! Kisses x x x x x x

menopauselsupermodel said...

The color blue was made especially for you!! I love you in all your matchy-matchy divine glory!!

Amber of Butane Anvil said...

Okay, how are you NOT totally glam and rockstar-ish? Dude, you are like the most absolutely glam and rockstar-ish person I "know."

Another incredibly beautiful look today, what a gorgeous blue! Loving the texture of the hat, the coat stitching and the print of the frock so hard. xo

bonsaimum said...

That coat and hat are fantastic. I am drooling in appreciation!!

Emalina said...

That hat! That incredible hat!

Marla said...

I love all that blue!

karensomethingorother said...

I don't care what my daughter says: I love matchiness. But what the hell do I know? I get excited when my socks completely match my shirt. That hat was just waiting to be owned by YOU, Helga.

Miss Simmonds Says said...

I cannot wait to see more amazing band photos. I love this regal matchiness. You look stunning. Those glasses are the best and are those howlite skulls I can see? Keep looking amazing, you rock star! xxx
