Just Frock it Good


As I write this post, I am admiring James May in fabulous retro golfing gear....
( flutter! )
It's Friday afternoon, and frock yeah, my working week is done.


Frock-50's, Trade Me
Headpiece-darling Vanessa
Tights-Love to Dance
Shoes-opshopped
Handbag-60's vinyl (ever so thick!), opshopped
Belt-garage sale
Earrings-gift from my lovely friend Nicole
Chain necklace-hippie delish Vix
Blue beads-opshopped
Large necklace-Shabby Chic Market


Please note; James May does not make me flutter as much as Mr Darcy does, but he does give me such a delightful Mummy kind of flutter; I just want to look after him.
Whereas Mr Darcy gives me the kind of flutter that makes me want to ravage him to within an inch of his life whilst screeching Mr Darcy!, Mr Darcy! over and over as I thrash in a Showgirls pool scene kinda way........

I actually love Showgirls.
I reckon it's a film Russ Meyer would love to have made, only the bazookas would be much, much bigger and the acting waaaay better!

Oh HOORAY! I love Russ Meyer! One day I'll own my very own copy of Mondo Topless. Ah, simpler, gentler times.

Loved your cape. Just loved it. The dress and accoutrements are fabulous too, but the cape makes me long for a cape.

Misfits Vintage said...

Ooh that hat is SPECTACULAR and I adore the darling frock - and a cape! In Summer... How DELIGHTFUL! And is that a new handbag? It's absolutely GORGEOUS, as are YOU, OF COURSE! I would like to put my hand up for a bit part in your movie, obvs. LOVE! Sarah xxx

That cape is fantastical! Tarted up in tartan! Your hat is great too.

Terri said...

Sigh, if only I lived in New Zealand, my work week would be over too. Great contrast between the dress and the cape!

Straight Talking Mama! said...

I just showed my OH your blog and said how much I love what you wear, looking fabulous as ever!

Ronnie (RR) said...

Fabulous cape :) Its only just friday morning here, so not quite the weekend, but I hope you have something wonderful planned for your weekend, enjoy X

Trashsparkle said...

Helga, I'm worried.... please enlighten me about this James May of yours; the only one I know of is the big, bumbling, scruffy man on Top Gear... a very dull programme about having big cars and blowing things up. I really don't think we're talking of the same JM. Or are we??? :-o xx

Hannah said...

Gorgeous dress and magical cape don't need much more really? Yeah I am bit concerned you mean the guy from top gear? xx

Melanie said...

Fab outfit lovely x

Those last two paragraphs made me giggle!

The Grande Dame said...

oh gosh, I just LOVE that cape! Don't you love finding op-shop shoes that fit? I love your look here, the colour scheme is brilliant. PS Gorgeous cardi in the last post!

Miss Simmonds Says said...

Argh, that dolphin style sex scene from Showgirls is now imprinted in my brain. I'm planning to come to New Zealand to wrestle you for that bag, I love it so

Perdita said...

James May!?! You mean Top Gear James May!?! I've seen him in real life, not worth a flutter- quite boring.

Although I do feel sorry for him with the other two always picking on him.

pastcaring said...

I see no one is sharing the James May love - you're on your own with that particular fantasy, kid!
You are looking spectacularly wondrous, you tartan-caped crusader. The headpiece from Vanessa is a joy to behold. As are you, of course. Quite regal again today, I love it when you do regal. That gets ME a-flutter!!! xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Lakota [Faith Hope and Charity Shopping] said...

James May? So you'd let him check your oil huh? He revs your engine? I bet he'd LOVE to fondle your dashboard, especially in that cape!

Franca said...

You're looking very ladylike today!

About James May: if forced at gun point to pick one of the top gear guys, he's who I'd go for. But only then!

delia hornbook said...

Mr Darcy im sooooo with you on that one ;-) He is such a dish. Great outfit. Have a fun weekend, dee x

Vix said...

Frock me! that is one spectacular outfit, a bit Victorian with that mysterious veil and Holmes-like cape, you fricking fabulous woman!!!
Don't think I'd stand a chance in a Russ Meyer film, I'd have had to have made the tea or been the grip or something ('cos that always sounds like a great job!)
Still not understanding the James may love, only realised Colin was quite cute after seeing him in Tinker, tailor, Solider, Spy but I think it was his cord trench coat I lusted after the most!
LOVE YOU!
