Late yesterday I perked up quite a lot.....the medicinal vodka kicked in and blew my illness away!
So,I frocked up in my gingham maxi-haven't worn it for years!-opened up my vanity case and got frisky with this fabulous pink blush I bought in Thailand last December,plaited my hair and let my inner Frida run free!!!!

I have had these platforms forever.Can't remember the last time I wore them.For some reason they are actually disintegrating!But still wearable,luckily.I had stuck on some gold stars at some point,but they have mostly peeled off,dammit.I opshopped the frock many years ago from Savemart,when retro cost less than $5.
Frocking up always makes me feel better and brighter,even though it takes a little effort!
*ooo,I just saw an ad for "The Price of Beauty",seems to be a documentary about beauty/what is considered beautiful in different cultures,hosted by Jessica Simpson?!Actually looks really good.Must check that out.I'm watching Mash as I type,and G is in the kitchen preparing dinner.Mash is such a great show,one of the best American shows ever produced,I reckon.A great mix of comedy and tragedy,it makes me want to laugh and cry,and Alan Alda is terrific and so bittersweet.
Yay for TV on a shitty,cold winters night!

Your inner Frida and then some! Gorgeous as ever.
Alan Alda was one of my first crushes, via MASH, when I was a wee girl...I've always been fond of older men!

Oh vodka! is there anything it can't do??? glad to hear your feeling a little more chipper. Loving the frock, but then again, you could make a paper bag look good. ox

Mrs Munster said...

Awesome look. Pretty pink tights. I'm trying to cure my cold with whiskey :)

Kel said...

You look fantastic, fav outfit ever. Down to the platforms up to the hair, nothing is wrong about this.

Glad you are feeling better.

Helga! said...

great,isn't it,what a little(or a lot)of vodka can do!!!
Thanks for the lovely words,ladies!You all rock!

Miss Smilla said...

Couldn't agree with you more on how frocking up makes you feel better. It's one of the best ways for an instant lift - although the medicinal vodka definitely sounds worth a try too!

Vintage Vixen said...

Ill? How can anyone look that freaking fabulous with the lurgy??
Lurving the pink blusher and the Heidi plaits!!! We'll both have to wear our gingham frocks when we go out on the lash, freaking twinishness to the fore.

Fabulous! The frock, the shoes, the blusher...
