Breathe life into me, spin me round



O, hello there, pussy.....


Jo's pussy, Argenta, is an ocicat !
She's quite hilarious.
She and Jo's neighbours cat, Wolf, gallop around like insane things and make huge thumps, bangs and messes....!
She always has that petulant expression!


Writhing in ecstasy!!
The cat, that is!
I was later on, when I sampled some incredible Waiheke Island wine over dinner.......


I wore:
60's squaredance frock and beads-from the sweetest Squirrel
Jacket-70's, opshopped and cropped by moi
Tights-retail
Shoes-retail sale
Handbag-60's vanity case
60's headpiece and leopard bangle-from my darling Sarah
Other bangle-opshopped
Brooch-Shabby Chic market
Sunglasses-a vintage shop in Portland


I found some rather fabularsehole shoes on Friday, at the one opshop I popped into on our way to lunch....
Recognise that logo?!
That's Gwen Stefani's L.A.M.B. logo......
$10, thank you very much.
They are full leather, and beautifully made...and have never been worn!
WTF?!


Now, I want to say a big hello to a new reader, Sara!
Thanks for your very sweet comments recently, and yes, we do get off at lunchtime every Friday!
11am, to be precise. We work 4 nine hour days, and just four hours on Fridays.
It's bloody brillant!

Oh my you do burnt orange like no one, beautiful dress and I the jacket is yum. As if you have LAMB shoes jealous!!!! xxxx

Even puss coordinates beautifully with you - exceptional!
The addition of animal print to such a wholesome dress is inspired! The accessories couldn't be better, and I love thinking that the sunnies came from darling Krista's way.

Shoe find of the year there, unworn makes them all the better! Hope you break them in soon!

Yay to 11am on Fridays!!! You look exquisite in that orange-tastic outfit. That frock is beautiful....and it has ric rac! One of my favourite things. I would ric rac everything if I could.

Love the tights, the kitty, the oranges, the LAMB shoes!

MistressCatgirl said...

I love how you always know which colors to pair together. That's one of my failings. Sometimes I can't pair things to save my life. Those shoes are fierce and what a bargain!

Sara said...

Thank you for the big hello! The link doesn't work, but I don't have a blog or anything...Anyway, what a great find!! Don't you just love when you find a super bargain?! Also, I love those sunglasses. And the tights! And everything else... ~ Sara

Miss Maple said...

I love, love, love that outfit. My colours! Warm and vibrant. The white of the dress makes it more springlike. I would wear that at once. Love how you paired the flower pattern with the leopard skin tights and the checks of your jacket. See, even the cat matches your colours. That's fabulous! Hugs from Miss Maple and a country where winter is beginning right now.

wardrobeexperience said...

this outfit spins me right round, baby, right round! print mix in perfection.
i like the idea of 4 long days and 1 short work day...
the next few weeks of decembre there will just be 10 hours days at the office ... and saturday i have to work, too. phew!

Sacramento Amate said...

I need orange more than ever, now, ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

pastcaring said...

Even the pussy matches! Hahaha, how Mrs Slocombe is that?!
You look fabulous - flowers and leopard print and orange and spots and wonderful sunglasses... AND a writhing kitty - you spoil us!
You will such a wonderful rock chick in those L.A.M.B. shoes, great find.
And I love the thought of Argenta and Wolf cavorting around together like crazy creatures!
LOVE! xxxx

Janice Tutone said...

You really look great in orange! But I think that about every color you wear.....what a lucky girl. Very pretty outfit & the kitty is adorable!

Camelia Crinoline said...

Bargain-y shoes. I love that jacket. You cropped it to the perfect length.

joyatri said...

I love your sweet 'n saucy outfit. You do burnt orange (or as my boyfriend calls it when I wear it "baby poo" brown) well. That kitty looks like quite the mischief maker. Those orange and red beads are right up my alley.

Emalina said...

cute pussy, wonderful legs, all round gorgeous!

Kitty said...

Oh SNAP, I was just listening to Gwen Stefanis LAMB album today!!! Awesome shoes!!! Jealous!!!

CityScape Skybaby said...

Love everything about your outfit Helga, including the coordinating kitty. Those shoes are fantastic, you must have been so excited when you found them. I am so jealous of your shoe collection. xx

Melanie said...

Argenta is glorious and look at her admiring you! And you look fabulous, I especially like your dress and jacket.

one denim bird said...

And the 64,000 dollar question is ..... can you square dance in those Gwen Stefani LAMB heels after several glasses of Waiheke Island wine??? hmmmmm????
I bet you'd give it your best shot Miss Helgita. Totally loving your outfit (and the ric rac detail). Lucky yous - knocking off every friday at 11am. xox

Vintage Coconut said...

One BIG score on those shoes, they are lovely AND in my size. *ahahha*
Kitty is so cute and your outfit it delish!

Joni said...

I'm laughing at the moment because even though you're on the other side of the world and in a different time zone I'm tagging along right behind you commenting shortly after you are on people's blogs. A fun coincidence! Almost like being there sorta kinda.

You have such a sweet pussy. ;)

Hi there, thanks for the cat pictures and links. And for the second look at your wonderful outfit. I like to think that the ladies who shed great outfits into flea markets and op shops are thinking about us - ladies who will love and wear what they can't make work. I have a feeling those lamb shoes might have been purchased online or after a long flight so don't quiet fit the owner or maybe they where a gift from a feckless lover who had to be tossed and the shoes were just a sad reminder of his unfaithfulness. Whatever the case you are sure going to rock them!

Amber of Butane Anvil said...

I especially love your jacket and sunglasses, and how Kitty coordinates with your lovely frock. :) What cute feets you both have.

Oh man, I have missed so many great posts, but on the other hand I do adore the immersion in Helga-liciousness of getting caught up!
