Robot minds of robot slaves lead them to atomic rage


Ah, yesterday was the warmest, lovliest, Summery day...alhtough we're only in Spring!
I was so pleased last night to be able to wear this chiffony delight I picked up at made Butterfly's a while back when darling Leisa and her hubby were in town!
I had to take it in quite a lot (a rare and pleasureable experience!), and then wait for some good weather, as I simply couldn't ruin it with a coat!
We cruised over to Si and Nix' in the evening for band practice, and I lurkerd beneath their lilac tree in the dusky warm breeze...
Ooooooo!


Frock-70's, Madame Butterfly's
Fishnets-retail
Shoes-opshopped
60's handbag-opshopped
Floral headpiece (handmade) and earrings-lovely Sue
Diamante necklace-sweetheart Louise
Other necklace-a Shabby Chic market


Here's the frock I bought yesterday!
A splendid NZ label, all chiffony and fabularse!
I think I might wear it to Nix' 40th next weekend........

Ha ha ha oh I just noticed your little translation list on the side bar! Weird to think that not everybody talks like that.
That is a beautiful dress you have on there, is there actually any colour that doesn't suit you??
I'm just a little bit envious of al that spring weather you Christchurch kids keep going on about... we just seem to get more rain. Blah!

And cannot wait to see you in the red frock - it looks GORGEOUS! Happy weekend - it's faarking freezing here! Love you more than lilac! Sarah xxx

Oh you look adorable in Virgin Mary Blue, rather demure but with a hint of naughty! What a lovely place to pose, love the lilac.
I love the floaty pleated cape top, and that headpiece is a joy. Fishnets and silver shoes must be the perfect combination!

That frock with it's cape is DE-vine! I wish I could wear blue, makes me look dead. Aha! good camo against zombies! Now I must find a blue frock that makes me look green and dead. XXX Jet

MistressCatgirl said...

You look so flowy in that frock. The headband compliments it really well. We're starting winter so I have to shift to pants and grandpa sweater mode to keep warm.

Just came over from Misfits Vintage to here to discover another wonderful capelet! The rose, the pleats, the lovely swishiness! If you're not careful you girls are going to start a trend! (after the tea and tutus n'all)

mary van note said...

Louise Mc said...

I love the way you layer your jewellery, it gives it a different look every day.

That dress is too fab, the colour is gorgeous and it looks great on you. Xx

Ivy Black said...

Chiffon-tastic and cracking with that lovely orange bag. Can't wait to see you in your new to you red number.

The lilacs sigh forlornly as they can not compete with the blue chiffon glory of Helga!! The dress is stunning!!
I can't wait to see the new chiffon dress in action!

Franca said...

Sue said...

I have said it before and I will say it again, you look great in any colour and anything!!! Gorgeous tree you were sharing in your butterfly gorgeousness!!

Stunning dress and to die for shoes. It's colder than a witch's tit here - been warming up with fireworks.

Shybiker said...

What a color! I could dive and swim in it.

Forest City Fashionista said...

Blue is such a great colour on you and who doesn't love a floaty pleated capelet, especially when topped with a fab floral crown!

Joni said...

Helga, you are gorgeous. Look how beautiful your skin is too.

CityScape Skybaby said...

That dress is such a beautiful shade of blue Helga, I think your wardrobe must be like a rainbow you have so much colour in your life. xx

Miss Simmonds Says said...

I'm totally in love with the photo of you reaching up to the lilacs. It's got a hyper real fairy tail quality to it. All the movememnt of your dress looks like wings, it's gorgeous. xxxxx

Emsipop said...

Gorgeous! I'm so jealous of this lovely summery outfit - it's freezing in the UK! x

Rose&Bird said...

Lovely blue and orange combo! The picture with the lilacs makes me think of a pre-raphealite painting, only with added Helga-ness x

Emalina said...

Wow I love your bright colours! And that flower headband is Frida Kahlotastic! Great to have just discovered your blog, looks like you have so much FUN with clothes.

I've recently started mine at www.kikiandthegypsy.blogspot.co.uk
Hope to have you over some time!

Vintage Coconut said...

WOWY! What a fabulous headpiece and the blue frock is divine!

Renia said...

Beautiful dress! You look like a princess :)! kisses x x x x x

joyatri said...

You look like a modern-day version of J.W. Waterhouse's Ophelia in that blue frock and with flowers in your hair. Would have loved to have you along for a shopping 3some with Vix. I'm glad to know that I'm not the only one to be buying frocks with the sole purpose of cannibalizing them for their fabric.
The stitching detail on that crimson frock is divine and I'm sure you'll look divine (or devilish) in it, too.

Terri said...

The blue is eye-poppingly beautiful!

Krista said...

Ah the warmth I can feel it in these photos! That dress is so pretty and you are right a coat would just hide how awesome it is! I love it with the orange bag and I do enjoy it when you wear your hair down! Thanks for the book suggestions, you and G I have put them on my list! Btw I have a weakness for lilac trees don't they smell heavenly! Can't wait to see you rock that hot red dress!
Loveyoubabycakes!
Xxoo

I saw you on Shybiker's comment section... hello! I did a foreign study in Christchurch, and I was horrified at the damage the earthquake left on that cute city. I can't imagine it without the cathedral....

On to more cheerful things: I really love this outfit, colorful, yet a bit dreamy. I'm really loving that crazy hat- awesome!

Kitty said...

What have you done to your legs woman!! They look freakin' am-AY-zing you sexy damn wench!!!

Amber of Butane Anvil said...

Your red leggies and silver sandals, orange bag, and crown of flowers make that heavenly chiffon dress transcendent! Aw, Helga, I can barely speak.

I have a distant memory of lilacs.

Stacey said...

Frocks like these were all the rage when I was working in retail last year - but none of the girls that came into my work had anything on you! You're totally fab, in my fave blue & red combo. Loving the floral headband!
