The morning after sheds cold light.

Well, we had a splendiferous night!

The band were superb, and the wine flowed freely.

My 50's frock is the other Etsy treat I got. It was actually very well priced,about $30NZ, which is rather amazing for 50's in this neck of the woods.

I wore it with my lovely new cocktail hat, some old, old comfy boots and an opshopped belt.
I must have looked foxy enough, as I got my ass squeezed!

I was adventurous with my hair, too, and rolled it up at the back.

Very messily, but that's fine by me!

Friends Claire III and von Leon's gate, we passed it on the way down the hill to the Wunderbar.

I don't remember this "touting for business" pose at all!

Above the door at the Wunderbar.

I have no idea!

One hot morsel of manhood!

I am nursing the hangover from hell today.

We've just been out for lunch and hair of the dog.

I'm longing for my bed and oblivion.......and it's only 4:03pm!

That dress is gorgeous and what a bargain. I love etsy. So many pretty things. I like your hair like that too.

Hannah said...

I love that hat!! And your hair, and the dress. And pretty much your whole outfit, =P

I didnt end up going to stash-rehash but one of my dear friends went and said it was good and very crowded! She got some lovely linen and a half finneshed quilt.

Pull Your Socks Up! said...

Ooooh the dress is gooooooorrrrrrgeous!!! Love the ribbon trims then the studded belt and the boots - gaaaawwwwwd!!! Do I spy some silver in the fishnets and eeeeeeep!!! You're wearing that gorgeous cocktail hat again - it looks utterly fabbo with your slightly dishevelled bun. Reminds me of something I read on why French women look so hot "They look like they got dressed, had sex, then walked out the door" - haaaaaa!!!! xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxo

Smashingbird said...

I'd have given your bum a squeeze if I'd been there too! ; 0

jkubenka said...

You looked ravishing in all that black and silver, and your hair in a mussy mess! I'm sorry you have the hangover from hell, but here's some lovely miso soup to help with that (all said in a very quiet whisper!)

Scarlett Fontaine said...

Lookin fabulous, love your coat!! Did chuckle at the sign above the bar ;o) Scarlett x

Perdita said...

That looks like my kinda bar! Love the 'brand message' above the door, do they serve food and if so is it chilli, curry and spice based? Is it a warning for the next day? The mind boggles.

The boots n' frock look superbly foxalicious on you, love dangerous-rock-chick-Helga!

Shewearscrazywell said...

You looked like sex in boots!!! Thats a good thing too! :) Hawwwt. I am so glad you had a goodnight..but sorry about that hangover. Take Care, my Darling! Hearts, Janna Lynn

VainGlorySinner said...

Oh my god! You look like a sexy bit of punky pudding in that awesome dress with that belt and those amazing boots! Love this outfit!

The Wunderbar looks like a really great place to drink!

Hope your hangover has worn off now =P xxx

Pearl Westwood said...

I'm not surprised you got your bum squeezed - looking gorgeous as ever!

Hope the hangover has disappeared by now.
