Woman in Black...for a change

An old friend and former flatmate/bandmate is in town!!

He's been living in the UK for not sure how long, and I haven't seen him in at least 10 years!!

So I went into town, to the Dux, to meet up with him!


Frock-opshopped, had forever



Shoes-Hannah's sale last year

Gorgeous sunglasses, pendant and bow-from the sweet Sarah

Beads-from Renay

This is Miles!

My 3 most outstanding memories of Miles:

(in no particular order)
*He used to live across the road from the Dux, and one night, he and his flatmates ran around the Arts Centre (of which the Dux is a part) naked except for socks on their wangs.
*A party at the same flat; my boyfriend of the time and I were getting frisky in Miles' bed, when he suddenly burst in, furious, and (pointing at my boyfriend) shouted "You! Take your penis and get out of here!" and (pointing at me) "And YOU! Get your clothes on!".
*Staggering home one night along Antigua St, pissed as chooks, Miles trying to convince me it would be a good idea for me to shag him, and me telling him it wouldn't be, as were were flatting and in a band together when he fell over a knee high fence.

And now, here's what I wore to work yesterday!

My lovely new frock from Jem !!
I love it! Such fabulous colours!
I am also wearing:
Cardi-Trade Me
Beads-made for me by my neice Maya
Marquisite pendant(barely seen)-Sassy Sarah !
Hairbow-made by moi
Nothing better than a glass of wine at the end of the working day.

PS:Can't wait to start getting ready for Rocky tonight!!!

I've loving the top photo and I like the sound of Miles, top man! Having said that there is no way on gods earth he got that colour in the UK, tell me he's been travelling or been back a while!!

Roo said...

You look divine in black and the dress from Jem is beautiful. Thank you for your comment, I shall take the good advice from the Master of Posing!

The comment from Straight Talking Mama above made me chortle out loud, Miles has never come from the UK looking like that, we've not had sunshine here for years! xx

You gorgeous woman, you! You look hot in all black! Miles sounds like quite a character, haha! Love your new frock, too! I bought one of similar colours yesterday that must have been a maxi but was hemmed up at some stage. Let me fix it up a bit and I'll post a photo for you :)

Yeah, I want to know too - is he single? :-)
In any case, I'll bet he was wowed by your black dress. Hopefully there were no repeats of the stories from your past, as much fun as it must have been...

Dear Helga,
I'm positively squeeling like a happy little piglet in delight of seeing you in the floral frock...you look divine & you've styled it to perfection.
As for the black ensemble, I agree with Kitty, you look uttery fab in black.
What a beautiful dress & the bag is frigging spot-on too.
Oh, it's great meeting up with old friends & chew over the old times.
Have a great weekend my dearest!
Lot's of love,
