Recovering slowly

Here I am in one of my new frocks!

The very first frock purchase, in fact!

A retro delight with divine faux pockets!

Almost everything in yesterday's pix were what I bought, with some exceptions that were gifts from my gorgeous Sarah ....what a woman!!! I felt like I'd known her forever!

And what a fantastic shopping partner she makes. Our shopping mojo was HOT!

And no, I didn't take a spare suitcase....I wish I did, though!

I'll just have to go back again!

This spectacular brooch and scarf ring were 2 of my finds.


I had the best weekend!

Totally wore myself out. I slept for 11 hours last night, and am looking forward to a follow up tonight!

The old grey mare ain't quite what she used to be, but she performed pretty well!

Newtown is brillant, if you get the chance-go!

Sarah , you freakin' rock, and I love you!

I love that sparkly brooch! One of my other friends who is an Aussie said Newtown is the place to go as well so its on my list for my Sydney trip in June:D

Those brooches are exactly what I love to hunt for and collect. Wonderful colourful sparkle, I add them to bags, jackets - even hair clips (especially if they are pennies cuz the back's gone). What fabulousness!

I love those costume jewelry bits you bought up. I don't care if it is Cartier or costume pieces, I LOVE that women have so many options on any budget to spruce up a wardrobe. You've done it again, Auntie Helga...seriously, I love the jewelry and the clothes you bought whilst on holiday! Seeing you girls all dolled up brought a smile to my face!
