I'll make a lampshade of durable skin


We went out to visit our friends Gill and Wayne out at Loburn on Saturday, and stopped at the dear little church down the road for a wee photoshoot so I could show off this awesometastic 70's Osti frock the divoon Ms Sarah sent me as part of a spectacular Parcel of Joy.


Last time we were here was nearly a year ago, in this post, where I was wearing a fabularse 60's hat from Sarah!



Osti was an Australian fashion label, in the 70's.
I remember the advertisements, but know nothing about the label, sadly.
I've had one or two of them over the years, (one I scored for 10 cents many years ago in Motueka, but it fell apart a few years later. Bummer.) and I'm pretty sure gorgeous Leisa has a few!






Nice job getting the windows in frame, Wolver G!



Frock and hairbow-my darling Sarah
Socks-opshopped
Shoes-70's, gifted
Handbag-60's, "The Funky Monkey", New Orleans
Necklace-New Orleans
Earrings-opshopped
Fabularse sunglasses-from sweetheart Daniel




Grrrr!
Showing just a little flesh.....

Darling, you look SPLENDID in the lovely Osti - and holy arsebiscuit if you don't have the sexxxiest legs ever! The location is absolutely GORGEOUS - put that on our list of spots to visit, please! I'd forgotten all about that hair bow - I'm going to see the girl who made that on the weekend - I might have to pick up one for myself! The mary is so gorgeous it's ALMOST enough to make a believer of me. Almost.

Love you more than ice cream!

Beautiful photos!!! What a great spot for you to share your fabulousness with all your fans. This is quite better than church I might add. In fact, if I had you to frolick in the church yard with I probably would have never entered the building in the first place. And then I wouldn't have needed all that deprogramming counseling!
You are luscious!

Love the print of your frock. It looks fabulous on you too.

Lovely little church too.

Were you having a spiritual moment or two, darling? You look most serene and contemplative. The power of that sweet little church and your awesome Mary necklace, obviously! Wolver G is doing a really fantastic job with the photos at the moment, loving all the detail shots.
Also loving YOU, in that wonderful frock which fits you perfectly, and those amazing wedges, and oh that tapestry bag is making me envious...
She's got legs, and she knows how to use them! xxxxxx

I've never come across Osti in real life. I must say I adore the pattern on your dress, it's so nice to see good browns out there especially with such nice accent colours. Totally ijn love with that church, it almost looks like a doll house...or something off Little House on the Prairie! Beautiful, as always. xx Shauna

It's true that dress is beautiful!
I love the black socks with the wedges and the cameo ornaments are stunning, the bow is pretty amazing!
