Channelling a little Gypsy flavour?

We were blessed with a proper Autumn afternoon....sunny, warmish, with a cool breeze.

Yet another Sydney frock that fits like a glove!

This is a little different for me, and I rather love it!

I felt very gypsy (hello, Stevie!) with the beanie, beads and flowing skirt.

Beanie (the small crochet hat, in case I am unknowingly using the local vernacular)-opshopped

Belt-vintage, opshopped

Cream tights-Farmers

T bars-Farmers sale

Big green beads-gift from Justine

Smaller green beads-opshopped

Key-opshopped and on a chain I got at the Rozelle Markets in Sydney

I'm quite into the key at the moment.

This one time at band practice I wore:

Frock-Sydney!! Of course!!!


Greeny/blue brooch-Sydney!

Bow brooch-school fair

Handbag-vintage, gift from my delicious Sarah

Tights-can't remember, but they match the frock perfectly!! (soooo satisfying) T bars-a defunkt shoe shop


Tonihgt we are having a dinner welcome our new family members......


We are going to be the proud parents of 2 kitties!!!

Pebble ( girl) is 6 months old, grey and white.

Harvey Puddleduck ( boy) is 1 year old, a tabby.

Their parents have to move back to South Africa, so they are coming to live with us, and are delivered tonight!

Their parents are staying for dinner, which will hopefully help them settle a bit.

I'm very excited.

It'll be interesting to see if their names stick....I guess we'll wait and see what their names really are!!


I so hope they settle in happily and fairly quickly. It'll be lovely to have the pitter patter of little feet around. I've missed my Boris so much, and though no cat could ever replace him in my heart, I'm sure I can find room for a couple more....

Little fur babies!!!

LOVE both looks! The flowy floral was fab on its own but now it's PERFECT with the accessories and a breeze.

The second one is SO CUTE with the tights and awesome blue shoes. GORGEOUS!

The bag looks TERRIBLE - you should send it to me. I hate it.

Hope you're taking pics of your new kitties.

Have a marvellous weekend my love - let's have a skype chat!

One word, Smokin! that dress is divine and soooo jelly about the haul from Sydney loving the beads too

Kitty said...

New BEANIE babies, ha ha! I love tabby cats, can't wait to see it. I agree this dress is a bit of a departure for you, but what is life without change and challenge, hey? And it's not like you can't pull it off or anything, far from it my dear, you look so stunning as always. No wonder the righteous G-man is devoted to you. Right on!!

Kitty said...

Sorry was that wierd?? Am quite pissed now!

Hannah said...

i had a cat called boris- he was very fat and dribbled when he was happy! cute little kitties will be so much fun- tehe hope they are trianed!

VainGlorySinner said...

I love the dress! So airy and pretty! Loving the Gypsy look!

What I would give to have another cat in my life! Not just for me but for Bella to have a feline companion.. but the other half doesn't want more than one cat.. he didn't even like the idea of me having a cat in the first place but I put my foot down and now he loves Bella but still says no to another cat!

Can't wait to see pictures of two new additions! xxx

Helga, while this dress IS different for you, I like it and if you wear it on a breezy day you will like it even better. Say meow to the kitties for me.
