Make a shroud pulling combs through a backwash frame



This fabularse 70's frock was from Brenda, a very sweet reader who sent me a Parcel of Joy recently.
It fits like a dream!
I wore it to work and felt like a sort of sexacious secretary all day.
Must be the emphasised boobage.
It has a matching jacket, but it's rather odd...
Rock the hell on, Brenda!




A scrum of brooches!

I have no idea where I got this vanity case from!
Probably opshopped, it turned up in one of my many vintage suitcases recently when I was looking for something else entirely!
It had an old leather jacket on top of it, which has sadly bled onto the case and given it a mottled appearance. I kind of like it, but I might have to do something interesting about it.

My gourd, I'm SO immature! How marvellous!

Darling, you are exquisite - I LOVE this beautiful shade of blue on you - the frock is absolutely GORGEOUS but I'm afraid those brooches are a bit hideous, so just send them to me and I shall take care of them for you.

I can see a fabularse DIY make over in that vanity's future... how farking splendid!

Love you more than the beach!

You look perfect in this dress, baby blue is definitely one of your colours. I really like the mottled effect, reminds me of ice cream. Err please can I have your cacti for my new garden, fanks! xxxx

Lovely dress - booth boty and curve alicious!

Maureen said...

It does look fabularse! I say this all the time, the hubster asked me what I was saying at first and I did the right thing, attributed it to you!

freckleface said...

It really does fit like a dream, how marvellous and most definitely sexy, especially in that first pic where we get to see butt AND bazooom. ;) What a treat.

Right, now take a letter Miss Von Trollop! xxx

Melanie said...

Sexy secretary boob alert! Awesome blue dress. It fits like a dream. And wait, is that the image of a biblical figure on your case...? The staining is divine it seems. I wanna see more videos.

Frocktasia said...

Helga 'the sixties sexacious secretary edition'...I like her very much, she is packaged to perfection!
Lot's of love,
Jennie...xXx

Louise Mc said...

What a gorgeous frock, it rather draws ones eyes to your booboids! lol. I love those sort of vanity cases, what a shame that it got damaged. Could you perhaps decoupage it? That would be pretty. xx

Sacramento Amate said...

Love you in blue, and I want a big hug from you, ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
I am sending many.
XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

Beautiful, dee xx

Vix said...

What a sexilicous frock Brenda sent you, you do look like a very naughty secretary. There would definitely be no work done with you swanning around the office dressed like that!
I love the marbled effect from the bleeding leather jacket but I'm somewhat distracted by that phallic looking cactus!
Love you! xxxx

edie pop said...

How sexy, this stunning baby blue dress looks like a second skin, I love the collar detail and the beautiful print!!This post needed a brooch porn alert, it's not suitable for the faint hearted and for the brooches lovers like me!!Wonderful!!!
The vanity case is lovely, but I think that you should make a 'pimp my bag' kind of work on it!
Love xxxxxxx

thorne garnet said...

I totally agree with Sarah Misfit, those brooches are godawful. Send them to America ASAP, and I'll dispose of them properly (HAHA)

With the vanity case, maybe you could add more stain and make it look marbled?

Emalina said...

That's one hell of a boobylicious dress, you look wonderful! Definitely working the sexy secretary look, must have made work more fun for you AND your colleagues!

Mariela said...

You look wonderful. Love the detail on the bodice. I think the vanity case looks cool.

menopauselsupermodel said...

The blue of the dress hilights the magnificense of the boobage!!!

The vanity case is cool and how much more fabulous it would be after you Helga-fy it??

Marla Robinson said...

You look so pretty in light blue. Love your brooches.

Perdita said...

Delicious dress. The boob contrast detail is super sexy!

pastcaring said...

Boobs booboids bazoomas! Sorry, that's all I can see...
They do look particularly boobtacular in that delicious blue frock! Oh Miss Von Trollop, the saucy secretary, how IS the boss supposed to concentrate with you taking his memos?!
So Melanie sees a divine image in the staining in the vanity case... It's a vintage miracle, open a shrine and rake in the cash, love! xxxx

liz said...

Love the fabric on that blue dress!Looks perfect with those little round-toe blue heels. A "scrum" of brooches--love!

Gracey at Fashion for Giants said...

Perfection. The dress fits beautifully and I love the tights, the shoes and the scrum of brooches. Especially the little furry one!

Renia said...

Brooches are so so lovely! Kisses x x x x

Krista Gassib said...

Sweetie you are looking extra squeezable in this baby blue frock. I think all of this from your silvery fingers to your fish nets is just gorgeous! The glasses are giving me naughty thoughts....
LOVEYOU!!!

PinkCheetahVintage said...

That dress does really let you bring the Boom Boom Pow!!! I love it with the brooches. I just got a similar vintage baby blue dress that I can't wait to wear!
Becky :)

Miss Simmonds Says said...

Woweeeee! What a stunning dress! It's absolutely gorgeous and fits like a dream. I love your hair and your brooch scrum, the mink one is fantastically kistch. I love the bag, maybe you could paint or stencil something on the front or cover the whole thing in fake flowers!! xcxxxx

charityshopchic.net said...

Such beautiful brooches! Very jealous :)

karensomethingorother said...

Sarah is right, but has failed to point out that you ALWAYS look super gorgeous when you wear this shade of blue. Now, can you take a memo: SEXAY.

Forest City Fashionista said...

Blue is definitely your colour! I kind of liked the mottled effect on the case, and thought that was the way it came. I am crushing on your brooches and rings!

Amber of Butane Anvil said...

Like a glove, and totally your colour! Amazing!!! Whenever I have anything stained, it never looks so all-over marbleized and perfectly integral to the piece as does your vanity case, well done! And your shoes - they knock me over. Love to you, xoxoxo

Ofelia said...

Very sexy, very Christina Hendricks!

Vintage Coconut said...

HELLO SEXY IN BLUE!!
You look rather delightful, love that dress on you... it shows of your ASSETS AMAZINGLY!

The Pugnacious Vegetarian said...

I just thought you should know that you are making me crave blue shoes!

joyatri said...

I'm playing catch up big time here. Like Vix, I was distracted by the tumescent cacti. Too bad about the staining on the case, but vinyl is easily painted.
