Collar me, collar you

This is one of the frocks I bought on Saturday!
I might take it up and in a little, but I simply had to wear something new to go over to Si & Nix' for a bbq.
Y'know how money burns a whole in your pocket?
I find that new frocks burn a hole in my wardrobe, so I simply have to wear them as soon as possible, unless they need work.
The other two frocks I got do need to be taken in around the waist, so you'll just have to wait until my sewing machine can come out of the garage to see them!
One of them is blue lurex!
OOO!
The red shoes were from darling Alex , and fit like a dream!
I had an odd moment when I went past a mirror and thought
"I don't remember putting tights on?!"
Then I realised.
My legs are so white it looked like I had white tights on!
Doh!
I guess I can save money on white tights then?!
I got the sunglasses on friday afternoon for a whole $1.
The cardi was opshopped.
I double bowed it!
The front bow is from an Asian shop up the road, and the big fuck off one on the back is from the splendiferous Sarah !
Check out Gracie, Si and Nix' rather unusual kitteh!
She's some type of Rex, I believe, and perfect for households with cat allergies, due to her fur not being like other cats.
She's very talkative and a real alien!
I rather like her!

I have an interesting mix of "Gay Bar" and "The Hills are Alive" on the brain today.
Just so you know.

Looking divine! Those shoes are so cute and the mini mouse bow from Sarah is rather special!

Rex's are so freaky looking but I love their big ears! I do rather like the Selkirk Rex's - like little ruffled teddy bears! xxx

And double bowing! Desiree started something with her double bagging, didn't she? I love it!
Looking forward to seeing your other frocks when they are ready for wearing and admiring.
PS. Gracie is a cute little alien, I like her smudgy nose. How are your fur babies doing? xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Oooh, I love the dress and the double bows! Your alien kitty is gorgeous too. Did you ever see that YouTube video with George W. Bush and Tony Blair singing "Gay Bar" to each other? I can't hear that song without thinking of that video now.

Trees said...

Another amazing find and you rock those double bows lady.

I think I will come down and spend a weekend with you in 2012 for sure and op-shop my little heart out!

Oh and that Kitteh is so cute - I love cats but I am allergic. I can be around them but I can't actually touch them :( It's lame - I wonder if I could get a kitteh like that one, although it would mean actually leaving the city and moving into a real house rather than a tiny apartment...hummmm

Misfits Vintage said...

LOVE that frock so much! Fab shoes and cardi and OH MY FRICKIN GAWD - AN UNPRECEDENTED DOUBLE FUCK-OFF BOW!!!

I bow down before you, amor.

Love that weird little alien cat. Delightful.

LOOOVE! Sarah xxx
