Frocking Friday at Two Squirrels!


So, Friday has frocked around, and today was the re-opening of Two Squirrels !
I was greeted at the gate by Bessie, Vanessa and Warrens trusty land crab!
The gorgeous twesome themselves, looking deliciously resplendent!
Vanessa and Warren have re-opened their darling vintage and curio boutique in a converted garage on their property in Rangoon (Rangiora), and it's a cracker!
They've kitted out the space beautifully, and crammed it with all sorts of delights!
EEEEEK!
Who should I bump into, but the lovely Brodie
 , out with her Mama!
Gotta have a pose off together!
I adore the carpet! It would look fab in my dressing/sewing room........but I also long for leopard print.......
I tried on these 4 divine frocks!
They all fit fabulously, but which one do you think made it's way home with me?!
I didn't catch this ladies name, but I was smitten by her kitty skirt!
Oooo, I can just see myself, lying back and swilling sipping G & Ts in summer on this splendid recliner.....
I had a wonderful time, Vanessa and Warren are fine specimens of humanhood!
Do note my glamourous new vintage earrings from Kitty !

Stole-vintage, Trade Me
Handbag & earrings-vintage, gift from Sarah

Fistful of cocktail rings from:
Sarah, Kitty (middle 2) and Vix!

Hurrah for a blissfully sunny Spring day!
We are supposedly going to get snow, but I think this time they're full of shit!!!

I want to visit this shop! The owners look like such lovely people. Loving the white tights lady - I have a pair and I think they are super awesome. Happy Friday xoxox

Lily said...

Darling, you look fabulous!!! That shop looks amazing. The kitty skirt girl should be glad I wasn't there as I would have CLUBBED HER TO DEATH FOR THAT SKIRT!!! My kingdom for a kitty skirt!!!!

Which dress did you get? Please say the blue one? I would have bought the blue one! Can I please request that your next post involves your refashioned psychedelic early 90s maxi dress? Am dying to see more of it.

Bwahaha I can't believe that Maggie T crossed the ditch. NZ certainly is scraping the bottom of the barrel with that one. I have no idea if she's still around, I'm just haunted by early 90s memories of her on the cover of New Idea wearing an enormous shirt.

Kitty said...

I'm guessing the yellow-ish dress went home with you? But I think the navy one looks interesting too! Glad to see the jewellery is getting a workout already.xx.

Holy hell what a bloody gorgeous shop and I love that it's in their garage! This is the sort of place where I would end up annoying the crap out of the owner because I would be pawing everything for hours - what an amazing find and aren't they the most scrumptious couple? My eyes popped out of my head when I spied you in all your glory - THE STOLE!!!!!! The floral frock is fecking glorious on you and RED SHOES!!! Dying, dying, dying here - RINGS galore!! I think you took the blue lurex number home;)). I had you in mind when I popped my pink frock on yesterday - mwah!! xoxoxoxoxo
