I feel ever so refreshed!
A few white wines and orange juice, a couple of episodes of True Blood*, and I was in nigh-nigh land by 9pm!
Yeah, Helga lives wild!!!
Helga likes her beauty sleep, and there's nothing Helga loves more than having no obligations on the weekend, so early nights and mornings are bliss!
I've been puttering around my sewing room, tidying (a bit) and doing some simple necesseties, like hems, adjusting fit etc.
I found a fantastic caftan that darling Kitty sent me ages ago, probably early this year, stuffed under my sewing table!! It needed to be taken in a bit, the hem let down, and the facing restitched up and then down. So that was my main mission today. I also adjusted another frock she sent the other week, so I feel like I've got something accomplished!
I like that.
Especially when I know I'll probably be too hung over tomorrow to do anything useful!
Today I am wearing:
Handbag-vintage, Retroplitan (it's a Rex!)
Bow-made by me out of a scrap of opshopped crimplene
Earrings-made by Jen !
The cats were tussling on the driveway-most amusing!
I popped out for some boozy supplies, and on the way visited Melanie at Madame Butterfly's, my friendly local ( just a round the corner, literally!) vintage shop.
I've put aside 2 gorgeous vintage head pieces.....one red and one emerald green......so naughty!
I tried one a few frocks.....but managed to resist, although I think one of them will definetly haunt me....it's 60's, teal coloured, and made of a very heavy fabric, with beading around a boat shape neckline and around the cuffs of some lovely bell shaped sleeves.....erk....
She does have a fine selection of frocks, from a couple of heavenly 40's numbers to glorious 70's lurex.....I always stay for ages, yapping away, hopping in and out of frocks.
You'd think I'd know better!
I have avoided going in for ages, though.
I've really been very good!
NEED MORE DISCIPLINE!
Anyway, we're off out soon for dinner, and I think I know what I'm going to wear!
But you'll have to wait until tomorrow to admire me.....
*For the record, I fancy neither Eric nor Bill!
I think Sam is the cutest man on the show, and I rather fancy Sookie!
She's a hot fiesty tramp!
PS: Curtise, you're wonderful!
