I got something to put in you


Had a pleasant Sunday afternoon at G's Mama's birthday party.
Wearing my fab 60's frock from Retropolitan and my spectacular cocktail hat from Madame Butterfly's!
Whalenets & shoes are from Trade Me, the tooled leather handbag was a $2 bargain about 10 years ago at the City Mission, my necklace was from a vintage shop in Dunedin late 1989 and my earrings were a gift from our lovely friend Nicole!
G was sexy smoove in his 60's top from a vintage shop in Dunedin and hat from a Nevada border town...Primm, I think it's called.
I was still suffering from Friday nights excesses, I'll have you know, but did manage to squawk out some vocals on Saturday night......
I have Electric 6 on the brain today, thanks to G....their videos for "High Voltage" and "Gay Bar" are the greatest videos ever.

You both look totally and utterly amazing! I adore that green frock and that cheeky headpiece so much on you. The dress fits like a freaking dream.
Check out those daffs, a sure sign spring's on the way...jealous!!!
Gay Bar and High Voltage are awesome songs, I'm gonna be singing them all day now!
LOVE YOU (and happy Birthday to G's Mummy)

Wow! You look so great love - especially the first photo. So pretty. G is looking rather dapper too. I love Electric Six, I remember much drunken dancing to "Gay Bar" at uni!

I don't know this music-what have I missed out on here?? That hat really IS spectacular, I'm surprised all & sundry didn't drop to their knees in awe. They should have.xx.

Such a stylish couple!

The green ensemble is fabulous - you look good in green. Hell, you look good in any bright colour! Like Vix, I am jealous that it's Spring in NZ. We have months of grey cold drizzle to look forward to!

Comtesse de ferveur said...

Basically, your outfit is utterly fabulous! This shade of green is always exquisite and siren-like on you xxx

You look the very embodiment of Springtime, lovely Helga! LOVE the dress and especially the hat.
And check out G, looking quite the dude!
Electric 6 videos are a hoot, those songs are in my head for the day now and I may just have to pop on to Youtube to see the vids...

You are one amazing broad - I love the dress, and that bow is magnificent. I am also majorly coveting the tooled leather handbag. *squeal*

Electric Six rocks! One of my lady friends & I were just watching their video clips the other night. I'm particularly partial to High Voltage.

Vintage Sweetheart said...

Your making my love green! I really want to find a vintage head piece for a wedding. Maybe with spring racing around the corner oppies might put them out. G looks pretty dapper too.
