Do I know you from somewhere?



Minty green and busting out!
We went to our Nix' 40th birthday bash last night, and I was channelling The Jade Princess, according to our mate Dave.
We had to take a bus out to Brighton, which was rather an adventure!


Frock-60's, from our colour queen Sarah
Kimono-a costume hire shop sale; it appears to be an old souvenir from the Taji islands?!
Tiara-retail
Shoes-Trade Me
Handbag-60's, opshopped


It was a bloody good night.
Loafer played a small set, Nix' sister and cousin did a few songs, and there was much karaoke!
That's Jo and I doing "Gimme Gimme Gimme" by Abba.


The light whilst we were waiting for the bus was dramtically beautiful!


Candid Dave and I at the bus stop.


In recovery mode today; I've been wearing a scrum of opshopped/market bought brooches, an opshopped cardi and a frock from Curtise "the bod" whilst drinking Bloody Mary's and thinking about doing some sewing..


As well as making savoury muffins and prepping for tomorrow nights fortnightly veg night with Cousin Phil and friends Amber and Bela.

I can't really be arsed doing anything now else other than lolling about in front of the telly....

You do look like a princess! I love the color and detail of the gown. Ah so that's your grape brooch. It's very lovely. Karaoke is always more fun when you've had a couple of drinks. Looks like it was a great night!

Sheila said...

You are indeed a princess, Helga! I love the necklace and the vintage brooches. That robe is fabulous.

Mmmm...muffins.

Amber of Butane Anvil said...

Royalty? More like divinity! Your tiara and kimono are incredibly festive, and your necklace perfect with your gorgeous gown's neckline, nicely done!

Telly-time well-earned, too. :)

Melanie said...

I'm speechless at the beauty of your tiara with the kimono. You are definitely a style monarch.

Fabulous as always, the detail on the back was very surprising and fun, my favourite type of thing!
The brooch collection is really cute!

Holy booboids! You look gorgeous in the green ensemble. And you know I just ADORE a scrum of brooches. Those muffins look delish....you can't find savory scones & muffins here as good as the Kiwi ones. Love to you. Xx

It's true, you do look magnificently regal, that dress from Sarah is stunning, look at all that gorgeous beading. Did you get gawped at on the bus for looking so amazing? I would have gawped for sure, and wanted to sit next to you and stroke your beautiful kimono!
Glad to hear there was some band playing and singing and karaoke involved, hope you got your man after midnight!
Sundays are meant for lolling. And brooches. And Bloody Marys!
LOVE! xxxxx

You look feckin' gorgeous! Words truly fail me. I'm salivating over that incredible kimono and the green dress underneath is a thing of beauty (rather like you).
Bloody Marys, savoury muffins and procrastinating over sewing sounds like a splendid Sunday pursuit!

You look divine in that mint ensemble - the gown is positively regal and the kimino is fabulous!

You look stunning - I love this minty princess look. The dress is absolutely gorgeously fabulouse on you. All that sparkle. Did you know you have a regal air about you? The kimono is beautiful. I want photos of you in that in the summer lounging around with sunnies and a bastard massive cocktail in a pineapple. So get on it. Would LOVE to hear you do karaoke and even better join in. What would be our song? xxxx

thorne garnet said...

Love that you took the bus, what a treat for the other riders. The kimono is beautiful and so are you

Joni said...

I'm lolling about in front of the telly as I type, watching Eddie Lizard lookin' sexy in a skirt.

You are a gorgeous Lady Jade Queen of Green-a-licious. You still outshine the lovely bus stop lighting.

Annie said...

Blimey Helga, you look absolutely stunning! There is nothing about that outfit that isn't perfect. You look every inch The Jade Princess.

Those muffins look delicious. Any chance of a recipe post?

bonsaimum said...

A very regal look I must say.It looked like a fun party. :)

Krista said...

Never would I have thought to wear a kimono like this and you totally make it work! It's friggin genius you green Goddess. If I saw you getting on the bus I'd ask to come along to whatever party you were going too! I love the tiara too, but you and Jo singing now that sounds fun.

Your yummy muffins and time in front of the tv perfect end to a fun filled weekend!
Lotsoflove!

That is one ridiculously regal looking frock! But I'm afraid the sunset may have shown it up! (That kimono is rad also)

You should always be seen in green! It's my favourite colour on your for the way it goes with your gorgeous red hair :)

My gosh that green dress is just Gorgeous. You are Gorgeous too! So the two of you mixed together are extraordinary.

CityScape Skybaby said...

I love that beautiful kimono and would love to have seen the reaction when you got on the bus looking so glamourous, you must have brightened up everyone's evening. Love you and your friend singing Abba too, makes me remember two of my favourite films ever, 'Muriel's Wedding' and 'Priscilla, Queen of the Desert'. xx

liz said...

Dear Helga, green outfit + grapes brooch? You just won my heart. Um, again! Happy sigh.

Misfits Vintage said...

Errr... how the fark am I so far behind again that I missed THIS AMAZINGNESS OF EXQUISITE RIDICULOULY FABULARSENESSOSITY???

You are DIVINE in the greens, amor - that robe is so perfect with the frock and the tiara is splendid! I love the bus stop pics - so incongruous - and you're right: that light is EXQUISITE.

So glad you had such a wonderful night - you know I love karaoke and I Gimme Gimme Gimme is right up my alley (and no, that is not a euphemism!)

Love you more than THAT FROCK! Sarah xxx

karensomethingorother said...

those savoury muffins look freaking delicious. Nevermind about the muffins though--you look FABULOUS. I love the outfit that has a touch of regal beauty, a touch of nostalgia and a spoonful of FUCK YEAH I'M AWESOME. Sorry, bad language, but that's how I feel.
