Put the roof down, baby



So I played the part of the groupie on Saturday night for G's band, The Prov's.
I suppose I should have frocked up in more slutty style, all tits and legs and my arse hanging out....but I opted for understated elegance.
After all, I'm a lady!


They played with a band called When Pets Attack .
They were frigging hilarious!
And, much to our amusement, they're older than us!
Nice to see other oldies not taking themselves too seriously.


Frock-60's, Retropolitan
Cape-60's, Trade Me
Tights-retail
Shoes-the sexacious Desiree
Handbga-60's, opshopped
Brooch-opshopped
Earrings-lovely Sue


My boy in action!

I keep trying to load a You Tube clip I made of them playing, but it keeps bloody flicking on to the one I made of the infamous Wunderbar mirrorball.......so, if you'd like to see/hear one of The Prov's ( my favourite, actually) songs, go here... hopefully....!

You are so not an oldie. You look elegant with a hint of rock n roll with those shoes! xxx

Darling, you ARE a lady! You are DIVAAAAHN in the beautifully understated and elegant ensemble. I especially love the shiny bits: shoes and brooch and your magnificent hair. I do hope you will squeeze yourself into something much less elegant when you come to The Sarah Show! G-star is such a ROCKSTAR!! Love you more than disco and/or balls! Sarah xxx

Hey lady, lady, looking lovely, very pretty colour combo. I'm sure G was proud to have such an elegant, stylish, pretty lady supporting him.

Louise Mc said...

That dress is gorgeous, I love the neckline on it, and the gorgeous colour. You are the queen of colourmatching tights, I need to invest in more colourful tights for our damn awful weather. G-meister is so cool, you're a cool pair. X

How I love the rings + handbag shot! This "ladylike on the outside" business cracks me up - youre so gorgeous, I love that cape too! Glad it was a great gig - here too my old friends have re-formed their punk bands and it's the nicest ever and hilarious night out, despite all of our dedrepitude!

freckleface said...

Ooh lovely outfit, looks grrrreat. Cutest little silver dancing shoes, your feet look teeny tiny. Most ladylike! :) xx

Carina Rosenholm said...

You are not an oldie ! I think you rock !

Janice Tutone said...

You are a vision in purple!

pastcaring said...

But darling, you are once, twice, three times a lady!
So what are we calling that colour? Wine? Burgundy? Merlot? Grape? (Me - a wino? Never!)
Whatever it's called, you look beautiful in it, I love that dress and the matchy-match tights, and those silver shoes from Desiree are divinely ballroom! And I always love to see you as a caped crusader.
Look at your G-man doing his thang! Yay for fabularse groups of oldies having a hoot!
Love you pair of rock stars! xxxxxxxxx

Vix said...

You are such a lady!! That dress is gorgeous, have I seen that delicious cape before? It's making me rather faint with envy.
G looks every inch the rock star and I'm rather in love with those curtains, weren't you tempted to jump on stage and nick one? They'd make for a splendid frock!
Love! Vix

I'm listening to G band's music right now and ,even if the audio isn't the best, I love it!The Prov's rock and so do you!!I admire the fact that you made the video because I hate to watch a concert through the lenses and believe me, as a groupie myself, it happened million times!
The silver collar detail of your dress is beautiful, the perfect match for your wonderful shoes, you are a lady (even if not all your links work on this earth pole and I'm curious to know which one was the lady)you are bloody gorgeous and your cape mania is contagious!!
Love xxxxxxxxxx

Little Scribbler: sh*t I wear, think, eat, drink said...

Aw, it feels like so long since I've been by and, a few lines in I was chuckling already. Darling, I think one can afford to go a bit ladylike when seeing the band if you're a sure bet to be going home with one of them anyway ;-)Grrrrr! xxx

MistressCatgirl said...

Dressing slutty can be fun especially at concerts but you stand out much more by looking elegant which you do. I love your capes and those shoes are just awesome.
I love it when older people keep doing what they love. It makes living much more fun.

karensomethingorother said...

Love it. Love the whole freaking outfit. You do rock a cape.

Sara said...

Elegant lady! I love that purse, and you look SO GREAT in purple! :)

Annie said...

Oldie my arse! You are fabulous! Love the silver shoes, the dainty cape, and the so pretty bag.

I love a live gig, and I'm off to check the music out now. xx

Sissy said...

Oh I love the band's sound, reminds me of my old Spirit Club days - I'll be a groupie until the day I die haha....you look great, especially that fantastic cape, thanks for the post!

Vintage Coconut said...

Pssshhht! You are not a oldie. I have seen how you can roll about on that big purple ball. And HELL HELGA... No one can do it like you. ;)

*hehheeh* Your totally fabulous and sexy.

Shybiker said...

You may be a lady, but you're one freakin' hip chick. You prove that style is available at any age. Thanks for the inspiration.

señora Allnut said...

wouuu, so elegantly magenta!, lovely color combo, the fabulous dress and tights color is so pretty combined with your cape!, ladylike sexiness!!
besos & rock

Missy Vintage said...

I bet you make a great groupie! ;) You look bloody marv as always, you rock colour so well. Love the purple tights with the silver sandals. It;s below zero here so tights are a must at the mo!

WendyB said...

Fabulous color combo!

Krista said...

Who's that lady? Why is it that term lady makes me think of some super cheesy songs? Dare I say you are beautifully modest in this dress. I do love you in purple and the silver shoes are glitterific! G looks in his element bt I couldn't get either links to work:( ill try later.
Xxxooo

bonsaimum said...

My dear Helga, you are younger than me so you are definitely not, I repeat not, an oldie. We are like good wine, we get better with age. As usual you look exquisite and I covet that beautiful brooch you are wearing.The handbag is truly divine.

Trees said...

Such a SOPHISTICATED groupie - I love that shade of pink and gold together and I love that cape. I think you must have the best cape collection in the world. ROCK ON G!!

Camelia Crinoline said...

You look fab. I love the cape. Your tights and dress match perfectly. G looks so intent on his drumming in that picture.

Sue said...

But don't you do understated elegance so well!!!! What a proud woman you are of your lovely G-man!!!

Marla said...

Love all the shades of purple. Amazing rings on your fingers. That cape is so nice and I love that purse.

OP SHOP MAMA said...

You are the goddess of cape wearers.
I will never look at a cape without thinking of you. You must nearly have a whole closet FULL of them! Too good.
Happy Days. x

Emalina said...

The Grace Kelly of rock star girlfriends! Looking great Helga!

Melanie said...

Oh that dress is delightful, I absolutely love it!

thorne garnet said...

Awe, a vision in purple. Love the silver shoes

The Style Crone said...

Your mastery of color is a constant inspiration to me.

menopauselsupermodel said...

That dress is SECTACULAR on you!! What a gorgeous color!!
You didn't need to hang your goodies out for all to see to look so sexaliscous!!!

Rockstar G-man!!! The song "little Drummer Boy" literally playing on my computer as i scrolled down to his picture!!

His band ROX!!!

Miss Simmonds Says said...

Obviously you go for understated elegance like Mrs Slocombe. Looking gorgeous in that violet and blue. I badly want silver shoes. You're not old, well you know that, but that other band sound like crazy 20 somethings initially, now I'm imaging old rockers with hilarious stories.
Keep being a super star

Forest City Fashionista said...

You're looking very posh in your magenta dress and coordinating handbag! Cool to see G smashing the skins.

I am droling over that cape. The colors are so lovely.
And you really look like a lady in that beautifull dress. You look like a cool groupie!
And your mr. G is really rocking!
