Just add colour!


Sometimes a gal needs to be a little more visible in the world.
I was quite excited to spy these fire engine red wedge heeled boots the other day....I needed a pair of red boots!
I think they're bright enough!
Certainly nice and plasticky!
My jewellery is all gifted!

I came home, in splendid sunshine, to find a parcel from darling Jen awaiting me!!
EEEK!
A fabulous 70's "ice skater" frock in a vivid royal blue!
An adorable "bow tie" and some fantastic grumpy sun earrings that Jen made for me!
Fecking SQUEE!
Thank you sweetie!
Jen was off to Sweden the day after posting, and may well still be in pain from the 10km run she was planning to do.
I don't know.
Some people!
Running can't possibly be good for you!!
A gal could spill her drinkie!
Anyway.
I've mentioned a couple of times that G and I have been watching a lot of MASH reruns.
During this, I have come to the conclusion that Max Klinger, in his early years as a cross dresser, is in fact a Style Icon.
I love how he never lets the weather get in the way of glamour, his dazzling use of accessories and how, like myself, he is never underdressed!
I had a quick snoop and found these two fine examples of his attire.....

I feel a little giddy at contemplating channeling a little Max Klinger......
Not sure what G would make of the hairy chest, though!

X!

Yay! Those boots are freaking fabulous and you look gorgeous in those red and orangey colours. It looks so gloriously warm and sunny there, you lucky darlings.
Jen's dress is a beauty, that cobalt blue colour was the best thing to ever come out of the 1980s.
LOve you!"

That skater dress is INCREDIBLE! I love it - also amazing boots - I covet pretty much everything you wear though. In a non-stalker way of course...
