New/old for my head!


I'm the most tired I've been in a long time, due to 3 nights of shitty sleep, but I couldn't not be excited about collecting mynew 50's/60's headpieces from Madam Butterfly's after work today!
Aren't they heavenly?!
I think I'll wear the green one with the green paisley frock I bought from Retropolitan to G's Mama's birthday celebration this coming Sunday.
Any excuse, really!
My beloved Vix was talking about how so much of her wardrobe is old, old, old, and how she loves re-wearing and re-styling her clothes until they bite the dust and then she recycles them into something new.
Me too!
This frock is pretty ancient, probably about 10 or more years old, fabulous crimplene,and the ribbon under the bust was added a year or two ago to spark it up a bit.
The ribbon itself is off an old, old maxi that is currently in the process of being re-modelled, and is somewhere under my sewing desk!
My necklace, tights and sequin hairbow are from Vix 
Boots-Trade Me
Earrings-Vanessa (thank you again, sweet thing!)

Now I am going to loll about and feel sorry for myself for a bit, G is going to feed me nachos and say "there, there" a lot, and then I will be resorting to a sleeping pill for an early night and hopefully an un-interrupted nights sleep!

Wow, gorgeous head dresses, I like the orange one.

Thank you for your words of wisdom too. My problem has always been trying to over-plan the course of my life, and life just isn't like that.

Anyway, love you Helga. Sleep tight. Xx

Ooh they're beautiful! I'm rather jealous!

Sucks you're not able to sleep at the moment tho, not getting enough sleep is the worst. I turn into a dragon-lady when I don't get my 8 hours. Hope you sleep well tonight!

Oh I hope the sleep fairy comes tonight, I hate bad sleep nights, the conversation is a yawn, dam you inner voice.
The earrings are fab with the dress and bow!!!!!
Can't wait to see you put a spectular outfit together with the headpieces.
Sleep tight sweet. Love V

Vix said...

Those hats look a-m-a-z-i-n-g! can't wait to see what divine outfit you whip up for the weekend with that delicious green number.
That frock is a beauty, the empire waist does wonders for your magnificent booboids!
Hope you manage a decent night's kip tonight.
Love you!

Are you trying those headpieces out as a BRA in the third pic? You are, are't you! And why not?
They look lovely, looking forward to seeing them in pride of place atop your marvellously coiffured 'do. In a verbose mood today...
That dress is certainly worthy of being an old favourite, it's great on you.
And tell G to leave you alone to get some sleep! xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

seƱora Allnut said...

it's always a good reason to be happy to have new hats to wear!!

Hannah said...

Lovely hats! I do feel you can never have too many. I have so many clothes that I have had since I was a teenager. Yum flipping love nachos, hope you sleep well x

Tomye said...

I can't wait to see you modeling your new hats. I especially like the one with the feathers. They always want way to much money for vintage hats here in the US. I usually buy a cheap plain hat form and dress it up myself with ribbons, bows and veiling. -T

Straight Talking Mama! said...

Cute hats! You also look lovely in that red frock :o)

Hope you got a good nights sleep!

Vintage Coconut said...

Fabulous hats Helga!! I can't wait to see you in yours.
I picked up 3 beauties this week at the garage sales (Still have not posted my sale finds *lazy lazy* lol) I like your whole outfit and the dress even if 10 years old, looks great on you.

lasophia said...

Those hats are fab. I was so inspired by that royal wedding to wear things on my head more often. I slept in 3 different locations last night. I have been nursing my boyfriend all week with a tooth infection. Pretty sure I now know what it'd be like to have a newborn.

Yours in interrupted sleep,
Sophia

AMINTA said...

Hot Pink Combat Boots said...
