How simply super of you all to bear with my slightly demented ramblings yesterpost, darlings!!
Sounds like one of the dear Nolan sisters at least is alive and well and gracing television screens in yonder UK!
Who'd have thought?!
I'm quite relieved.
Mind you, I guess they're just too dignified to end up on Celebrity Rehab.....can you believe that's actually a TV show?!
Anyways, I scooted off on my bicyle after work to my favourite opshop in Addington.
I was accosted for a few photos by some young university lasses doing some kind of project on the area, and then chatted up by some elderly gent who seemed rather enamoured of my
Frock-made by moi from the bottom of a maxi I decapitated last year
Cape-from my darling Sarah (isn't it heavenly?! It arrived when I was in my post drunken stupor,ie: hangover, last Saturday morning)
Tights-opshopped (now with huge hole in crutch, not due to the elderly gent)
Handbag-60's cosmetic bag from Shabby Chic Market
Hairbow-made by moi from crimplene!
Has anyone ever noticed the odd freckle on my nose?!
It's glaringly obvious to me!
I didn't find a great deal at the opshop.
Just these fecking dazzling earrings!!!
And a "new" lipstick case!
How cute is that scotty dog?!
Then I came home to a parcel of goodness from my beloved Vix !!!
This divine thing was, for me, a dream item!!
A Jubilee apron!!
Thank you, you sexy bint!!!
Then it was time for a costume change, as my strapless bra had a bone escapee, which was rather painful, so I just had to take everything off!
So it was on with a summery remodelled maxi from Madame Butterfly's a couple of years back, my grey heels from Trade Me, and my wonderful Mrs Slocombe bag made lovingly by the wonderful Liz !!
Then I went to collect G and we trotted on out to Rangoon, he for a swim, and me to visit the gorgeous Vanessa and Warren !
They, I might add, are fine specimens of humanhood.
And I bought this little beautie!!
It's just what I've been looking for; a cotton 50's day frock!
I'm quite happy now, as I have just the few 50's items I've wanted, so I can throw in a little 50's apple pie amongst my 60's/70's wanton-ness from time to time!
I might just have to wear it over the weekend!
My first mission, however, is too finish the frock I tantalised y'all with yesterday....I fully intended to finish it today, but just ran out of time.....
Y'all give me the horn!!
