Your lips might be sweet, such that I can't compete



I was channeling more than a little bit of the sexacious Desiree when we went out to see Devilskin on Friday night....
What is it about a lurid lurex, leopard and faux fur that makes me want to dry hump everything in sight?!
Luckily G was on hand to keep me from being arrested.




Frock-60's, theatre sale
Stole-Retropolitan
Handbag-So Obviously Rex, was G's Mama's (she got it for her 21st birthday!)
Tights-retail
Shoes-L*A*M*B, opshopped
Necklaces-San Francisco/Mexico/London at different times
Tiara-retail
Cuffs-the wide one was from Vix, the other I can't remember, and the bracelet was from a church in Mexico.



The band was pretty good as far as metal goes; it's the chick lead singer who makes them rather special.
Feck me, that girl has got pipes!
 She also frocks up in saucy vintage/burlesque style.
What's not to like?!



Wolver G rocked it up in an Iron Maiden T, jacket made by moi and tight, tight red pants.
Phwoar!
You can tell we did a fair bit of pre-loading before we went out......!

Val Sparkle said...

You know you're amazing - the tiara, the handbag, the stole, the stockings. But the shoes!!! Oh, mama - gorgeous! Great find there.

And you're quite the little woman at home, too - sewing a jacket like that. I bet you can cook coq au vin. Or you do something to the coq and the vin.

Ofelia said...

Those necklaces are brilliantly amazing!
Its always good to start drinking at home like that you can really enjoy the music once you get to the concert!

Renia said...

Hollie "Jet" Black-Ramsey said...

You've got to give us a rundown of how you make your hair so ultra fabulous

Camelia Crinoline said...

You look amazing in that dress. I love your hair too. I agree with Hollie above, you should show us how you get your hair like that. G's jacket is great too.

The Style Crone said...

You couldn't be more glamorous! Accessorizing your hair with a tiara was brilliant.

Vintage Coconut said...

This has got to be one of my top outfits of yours. My dear heavens!! You look like vintage royalty Helga with a side of sauciness! *Yee-ow*
And G's outfit is great also. I have a Iron-Maiden shirt I found in a thrift store. The poor thing is so faded from so many washes and wears but it is one of my fave t's to just jump into when I want to feel comfy. =D
