At a time when disco was burning up the charts....

Apparently the Star Wars soundtrack went off like fireworks!
I'm listening to G watching the documentary disc that came with the Star Wars box set (Episodes IV, V and VI-feck the rest) I got him for his birthday.....
and I am feeling rather befuddled.....
I feel quite good today, in fact, I would go so far as to say I am most certainly going to avoid a close encounter with my poo!
Hurrah!
(say it with me!!)
HURRAH!
That makes me very happy.
And so I went out with a couple of friends who came up from Dunedin last night for a nosy about....and then it rained like a bitch!
Hail too!
So I had a couple of whiskeys when we got back.
And then I had to go to bed.
I'm kind of barely awake, and have coffee in hand.....

HURRAH that you (hopefully) have avoided a close encounter of the poo kind!

LOVE that cape!

Original Star Wars all the way, the 'new' ones don't even come close!

Hot Pink Combat Boots said...

I have stocking envy! And I love how you paired it with the bright color of cherry red. You outfits always inspire me. I have a uniform on at the moment and feeling very drab.

Im looking forward to joining you in frock Friday when I get back to the states. Germany is not frock friendly at all.

Hope you are having a great week!

Xoxo

I had a GIANT smile on my face when I saw your outfit. Because just hrs before I found myself an amazing poncho/cape that is alot like yours. I will show it VERY SOON.
Your cape is a absolute dream, I love it. And you always look like a hot vixen in those tights.

10/10 for that hat and handbag!

Well it's a shame to cover up that delicious cleavage, even with such a magnificent cape, so I'm glad you gave us a flash!
The cape, the hat, the bag, the tights - all to die for, you gorgeous creature!

Misfits Vintage said...

Oh I totally remember the Star Wars soundtrack -in fact I'm pretty sure Brother Misfit still has it!

You look amazing, amor, that cape is SPECTACULAR - and I love your hat SO MUCH. I also love the stripes with the plaid - a combo I haven't considered and it looks AMAZING, of course.

Hope you are better darling - I came back from Indo with campylobacter and it took MONTHS to get rid of it!

LoveCapes, Sarah xxx

Perdita said...

Glad you're feeling better! My galavanting has caught up with me and I am on the lentils and no booze. My stomach (or 'tract' as Mr T.M.I my husband says) is not a happy place.

I adore that you credit your cleavage. I must say it was the item that jumped out at me, but then I am lewd and lusty.
