Some of Saturday...

'Twas a very busy Saturday for Helga!
Justine had birthday drinks at ours last night (pix soon), so we had a little bit of organising to do.

We took Baby Rose out to Justine's parents in Rangoon, did a few groceries.

In the early evening we picked up Pixie from the airport.

I wore:


Scarf-vintage, opshopped

Coat and stockings-my beloved Vix

(Mary Quant stay up's, actually, that unfortunately rolled)

Handbag-vintage, school fair


We had a lovely lunch in the midst of it all, did a little shopping, and even managed afternoon naps!

I bought 2 new hats and a fabulous necklace.....pix soon!

An important mission I had for the evening was to do Cousin Phil's makeup.

He had a fancy dress party to go to; the theme was rock icons, or something like that.

He went as Dee Snider from Twisted Sister!!!

He put so much effort into his costume!

And looked AMAZING!!!!

He was a dream to make up, didn't blink or twitch at all!

Anyways, we had a pretty mellow night with a few of Justine's nearest and dearest.

Somehow, I stayed up til 4am!

This is a rare achievement for me!

And yes, I am hungover.

Sorry about the hangover..but you sure did a great job on that makeup..he really does look like Dee Snider. I love your stockings in the above looks so amazingly 1920's...just fabulous! I heart you big time! Loves, Janna Lynn

OP SHOP MAMA said...

He looks the business alright!!

Your airport jaunt outfit must have been retro Air Hostess inspired.. Very cool!

I have some bright purple Mary Quant legwarmers, and they don't stay up either!

Lovely colours in your outfit but I'm afraid cousin Phil just pips you to most fabulous! That is an amazing Dee Snider - great work on the make-up x

Perdita said...

Your cousin Phil RRROOOCKS! Love that costume.

Your outfit rocks too: I love the scarf used as a pussybow and the bow on your updo too. Tres chic.

Miss Peregrin said...

I love the darling bow on the front of that frock. You look gorgeous - and so does Cousin Phil!

Rae said...

I think might just have been out awesomed there m'dear - he looks amazing!

You still look utterly fab though - love the tie, it really oomphs the dress oh and my stay ups always roll down too, drives me nuts

Rae said...

oops, forgot to say that I'm going to making loads more rings in July after the first leg of my massage course and as soon as I can source some decent ring backings... they'll be plenty up for grabs then so if you have a fave colour drop me a line

Louise said...

I actually thought your stockings looked pretty funky rolled, quirky. Your makeup job on your cousin was fantastic, and well done at lasting until 4am, its been a very long time since I've managed a night so late.

Oh BTW Peter Cushing wasn't born in Whitstable but moved there later in life. Mum is a mega Hammer horror fan, hence we had to get to his house. :-) xx

He looks amazing!
Reminds me - we were at a festival were twisted sisters were headlining. My husbands band had finished playing so we were leaving for the hotel. Our daughter wag5 at the time, and I said she could take her earplugs out as we were leaving. She froze and said " we cant leave barbie is on stage"
It really made me laugh, as she was totally right he looked like barbie with the hair,make up and outfit

Vintage Vixen said...

I can't believe how brilliant cousin Phil looks, what a splendid effort.
You look divine in your sexy air hostess outfit with those minxy stocking tops showing. Wowser! A sight for sore eyes on a sunday morning, that's for sure.
Give Justine a big birthday kiss from moi!
Love you.

Penny Dreadful said...

Rose&Bird said...

I'm afraid I don't know the band, but Cousin Phil looks just like the picture!

Love the navy, red and white combo. Look at you showing your stocking tops, you hussy ;-)

Your dress looks like a hot sexy 60's carry on nurse amor.

Alex said...

I hope Phil won the prize for best costume - the makeup, outfit and hair are all amazing! Did you try the wig on?

the makeup you did for him turned out great! I am worrying about you tonight, after news I've heard. Sending up prayers...they can't hurt.
