Wasn' t it a bit odd, Blogger being offline for maintenance?!
I was a little vexed, I must say, as I had set aside some time to blither and comment on everybody, but I was thwarted.
Such is life, I suppose.
Darling Ivy sent me this adorable 60's number!
Just my colours, and fits like a dream-although the girls are a little squeezed in!
I'm quite stoked.
Thank you, sweetheart!
I look fabulous in it, don't I?!
My ribbed tights, which, judging by the actual piece of elastic in the waistband must be quite old, go perfectly.
Makes me feel rather warm with glee.
The flower i just from the local chemist, the beads are vintage and opshopped.
O, bless, one of you little darlings commented recently that you actually looked up "opshopping" to find out what it means!
I like that.
I think it's important to use the local vernacular, and I expect people will ask if they don't know what the hell I'm talking about.
My favourite vintage Rex handbag, thrashed on a regular basis, and opshopped shoes.
OOO! Remember we went to a 40th b'day party not long ago, and there was a woman with a white Rex handbag??
She has agreed to sell it to me!!!
Our friend Alannah, whose party it was, is going to jack that up shortly over dinner.
And she's going to sell me the 2 piece she was wearing.
How jolly splendid!
I've managed to get my timeline twisted a bit.
My lovely new frock from Ivy was worn on Friday.
But on Thursday night we went to Pomeroy's after work for a few drinks with some lovely friends.
Pomeroy's, above, is just down the road from where G and I lived for 8 years when we first got together in the 90's. It was called Harrington's, and didn't look this good. It also had a knock shop upstairs called The Lily of the Valley, which I always thought was quite classy. That later became Femme fatale, which I felt wasn't classy.
The miracle is that Pomeroy's mut be the only old building left standing in Christchurch after the quake! Goodness knows how; beside it and behind it are rubble.
They are doing a roaring trade, as they are in fact the only pub operating within the inner city.
Amber and Bela with G.
Amber is a Star Wars freak, should you be interested, and the most with it 25 year old we know.
Bela is a fecking genius, with a Masters, I think, in something really intelligent, like rocket science or something.
I kid you not.
She's the other most with it 25 year old we know!
We LOVE hanging with these girls, they, and their friends, are just amazing young people.
Today I have been out with Justine, getting some veges, groceries, having a nosey at savemart and going for coffee.
It has been a gorgeous Autumn day!
Frock-vintage, Trade Me

I also wore this matchinbg clip on earrings and brooch-that-doubles-as-a-pendant set that I opshopped yesterday on the way home for $5!

Band practice tonight.
