Faux Alert

We are getting the most glorious weather right now!
I do don't mean to gloat.....but...
The seasons are really not what they used to be...nor when they used to be!
Anyway, it was a fine day for faux fur!
Pee Pee, of course, has the real deal.
She's far too classy to do faux, apparently.
Faux fur stole-Retropolitan
Frock-our Vix , traveller be her name
Hairbow-made by moi with a scrap of crimplene
Sunglasses-vintage Orotons, from the vibrant Sarah (16 sleeps!)
Jewellery-birthday gifts from G!
Fishy, fishy, fishy fish.....where o where could that fishy be?!
50's fishy bag-Two Squirrels
Shoes-retail, a few years ago!

Now here's a bit of excitement!
I bought tickets today to go and see The Dresden Dolls next week!!
We're going with our friends Amber, Miriam and Jon!
It's a bloody school night, but it's The Dresden Dolls, so fuck it!
I was meant to go and See Amanda Palmer last February....she was scheduled to play the night of the big quake....so that didn't happen!
This'll make up for that!

I'm excited!
I think I know what I want to wear....I just need to find G's tails!
I anticipate this gig will have peeps dressed to kill!
Fingers-and booboids-crossed!
On an unrelated matter, do admire my lovely sweet and sour veges I made last night, when we had Amber and Bela over for dinner!
The colours!
I just thought it looked pretty whilst I was cooking, and had to share!
Mmmmmm....the veges were so crunchy and the sauce was so delcious!
Nothing like a good vege feast!
Makes me feel so virtuous!

Great outfit, as ever. Personally think real fur looks best on animals - humans should stick to faux! Do love the fishy bag - will be looking out for a similar bag now.
It's been pretty sunny in the UK the couple of days, but cold as it's winter.
Veggies look gorgeous - will you share the recipe, pleeeze?!

Vicky said...

Love the fish bag, have you managed to impale anyone with the underbelly yet??

Miss Claire said...

Oh my! You look splendid in faux, and of COURSE Pee Pee is far to glamourous for anything besides the real thing...what a little minx! I MUCH prefer the faux version, myself :) Not sure that Chomby would approve of me wearing the real thing! Gah, that fishy bag makes me swoooon!! I saw Amanda Palmer a couple of years ago and she was divine. I got to meet her afterwards and complimented her on her frilly panties....dream come true!

Obviously Pee Pee is well fed as she took not alot of notice whilst passing one rather devine Fishy bag!!! You look gorgeous as per!! We have had 2 days in a row of sunshine up here, not nearly enough to get the required amount of Vitamin D but I will take the 2 days worth with open arms. Enjoy your school night out you naughty girl you!!

The veggies DO look delicious...recipe, please! Had to laugh at PeePee's genuine fur. Can't wait to see you all dolled up for this concert.

the Citizen Rosebud said...

The fur may be faux chica, but YOU are the real deal.

Rosina Lee said...

Oh super excited about the Dresden Dolls, have just put together a new routine to Miss me mister.

Sue, Joe and Michael Webber said...

I reckon that bottom fin on your fish bag would be very handy for scratching bits that are otherwise hard to reach!!

Kitty said...

Roxy Indica said...

Love Pee Pee!
Helga, glamorous as ever!

pastcaring said...

Is Pee Pee worried you may develop a taste for the real thing? I threaten to turn my cats into a stole on a regular basis. I jest, naturally - faux alarm, folks!
Wondrous frock, amazing colours and print, and the Nemo bag will improve ANY outfit you put it with, of course!
Enjoy the sunshine and your veggies, my darling!
PS. Thanks for the email - will hold off sending your pressie till you're on your exhausted-but-happy way back from Sarah's.xxxxxxx

Llara is the Little Scribbler said...

Aw, the veggies do look good. But not as good as the FISH BAG! Again, I love it! And, for a chortle, I thought I'd tell you that I misread 'faux fur stole' and though it said you stole the faux fur. Fnar!

Penny Dreadful said...

Wargh, that fish bag is amazing!

one denim bird said...

Yowza! Lovin the print on that frock! And it looks positively splendid with the faux fur and that cute az fishy bag!

Go you faux fishy fabulousness!

Anita said...

Love the outfit.

Misfits Vintage said...

OMG THE FROCK!!! THE COLOURS!!! THE BAG! You are exquisite as always, darling - and I am SO envious about The Dresden Dolls! Oh and your birthday necklace is so FABULOUS - I ADORE the colours. You are just exquisite from head to faux!

Love you more than 1950s wicker fish handbags, and I love them a LOT! Sarah xxx
