Modesty Issues

I don't know about you darlings, but modesty is something I think about quite a lot.

I like to think that modesty is an integral part of my personality.

Especially, quite literally, as a cyclist; I've had my skirt blow up on more than one occasion, and frankly, I don't want anyone but G checking out my panties!

Not to mention those drunken nights of debauchery, when you find yourself rolling about on the floor with gay abandon, entangled with another reveller, shrieking away with glee.

A girl doesn't want her ass to be displayed to all and sundry on those occasions, does she?!

Although I may have shown them off to you lot before, quite accidentally.......

I learnt my lesson re modesty the hard way.

There's nothing more educational on the subject than being confronted by a photo of ones ass when collecting newly developed pix .....

Picture this: one has a peek as one is waiting for the change upon payment and is shocked to see her own ass in all its glory, and one looks up guiltily to find the whole shop looking at her.

And one has no memory of this photo being taken.

Lesson learnt.

I can pose if I want to

I can pose like a silly tart

I can pose like a twit whenever I like

And act like an imbecile......

Yay, G did my roots for me on Saturday afternoon!

Earrings-Selcuk, Turkey

Top necklace-Vientiane

Bottom necklace-Kensington Markets, London(1989!) with vintage brooch, opshopped


Headpiece-Jen ,made with her own fair hands!

And here is the tattoo!

I  love it, Sonja is a bloody talented lady with a lovely touch!

Since there was so much wonderful interest in my Jungle Curry, I'll try and remeber to post the recipe tomorrow!
If I forget, will someone please give me a prod?!

This one's for Blossom!

Ha ha ha oh this post made me laugh! Yes I think we've probably all been in a situation where we've ended up giving people more of a look at this and that than we would prefer! Beautiful tattoo by the way. I have half of my back done with an art nouveau twist to it as well.

VainGlorySinner said...

That dress is bloody beautiful! So charming and girly! Those blue tights give it extra loveliness points!

Your tattoo is beautiful! She's just like you with her long flowing red hair! As far as large back tattoo's go this one is an amazing work of art!

I love the safety pants dance hahaha! xxx

Alex said...

Oh wow. The tattoo is looking amazing! She's seriously talented. The lady/nymph wouldn't look out of place in an Art Nouveau or pre raphaelite painting. Beautiful.

Psycho Sue- Sew Misunderstood said...

Rooty-Tooty Beauty!! You're looking Glorious as usual. I see you've been rockin' those gray heels quite a bit. I think I'm going to need to scout some of those. They're quite a good mix for a variety of looks.

LOL!! Love your 'Safety Pants' dance; such Joi de Vivre! The Tattoo is Lovely; I've been tempted to get a back piece, but am horribly lazy in getting the drawings done up.

As a Tall Girl, skirts are never long enough!! I remember always wearing BLACK tights with every mini I owned for fear of the 'Flash'. Although I didn't wear them one evening and caught Mr. Fuzzy!! ;^)

Krista said...

Helga HELGA HELGA!!!!!!!! Your tattoo is so freaking feminine and gorgeous! I love the peacock feathers and the flowing dress on this beauty. It's simply divine!!!! The stars at the top are the perfect touch.

This post is hilarious because the whole time I'm reading it I'm thinking I hope she shows us what she is wearing underneath. Are they bloomers? You look beautiful as always and that purse along with your whatever is peeping out are my favorite!

Ivy Black said... pants....
Love your colour know I love that coat too.

pastcaring said...

HA!!!!!!!!!!! A girl should ALWAYS wear her safety pants! You could stop a train with those (a la Railway Children, I mean.)
Your tattoo is a beauty, very Alphonse Mucha. The peacock feathers are gorgeous.
Love your moves, babe - you can dance if you want to!

señora Allnut said...

really love petticoat pants, and love the idea of wear 'safety pants' and feel free to any activities (including the possibility of rolling under a table after a free bar time, yes!)
And you're not only funny, but also fabulous in your kimono-dress, and love the colorful tights and the Green coat!
besos & fun

Vintage Coconut said...

I love the color of the tights with the safety pants. *Helga the almighty rainbow woman of gorgeous colors" Wow @ your tattoo it is so gorgeous. I wish I wasn't such a baby about needles or I would have a couple too.
LOL @ your dance your a riot!

Tomye said...

I love petite pants! I actually made a pair by sewing lace on the legs of a pair of body shapers. I also like what you did by combining your necklaces. I have very similiar ones left over from my belly dancing days.

You and your tattoo are just so beautiful! Love you, Dahling! :) Hearts, Janna Lynn

Misfits Vintage said...

Oh I LOVE your frock darling - the sleeves are marvellous! And the colour combo is divine - I am struggling to get away from matchy matchy town at the moment.

Your roots look fabulous and I LOVE the layers of safety pants and stockings and tights all competing for a little leg space - PHWOARRR Best Legs Ever!

Loveandlove, Sarah xxx

Blossom said...

Thank you so much lovely Helga.

I am in awe of you and the concept of the Safety Pant - and am intrigued by the delightfully saucy hints. Also, I want your dress - and also to look just like you in it.

Thank you so much for this, you delightfully clever person, you!
