In Bloom


Why yes, I do rather like this 60's effect!!


These are kind of Vanity and Vines Part 4, the morning after....
I didn't feel too bad at this point.
By the time Jo dropped me off home I felt dreadful, and poor old Jo had to go home and prepare for her BIRTHDAY PARTY!
Yes, it was her birthday on Saturday!
I don't think she was feeling as rough as I, however.
But her car did break down after she left me, which didn't make her feel too great.
I was too hung over to go to her party that night, shame on me.
See?!
I'm too old for this sort of carry on.......old enough to know better, but young enough not to care, I suppose!

You look blooming lovely. Looks like a fabulous time was had at the vineyard. Loving the camera effects that make your ensembles look even more divine. Xx

Great set of photos. Shame the car broke down, and hope you two are feeling much better now, have "a hare of the dog" (another drink!)as we say in the UK.

Sorry meant to write "Hair" not "hare", its too early in the am for me!

I agree with Ronnnie...it has to be a hair of the dog in these cases!

HELL000 Helga!
Aren't you a burst of color with a 60s effect.
Sorry you weren't feeling the greatest... but I suppose that's what happens when you wine too much. *HEHEEH*

I hope your feeling better by now.

Miss Simmonds Says said...

gorgeous photos! You're a citrus delight! That 60s effect is really good, pretty sure we have photos of roses looking just like the ones above. Shame on you for not being a 24 hour party animal! I must admit I do like a nice sit down after a heavy night xxxxxxxx

edie pop said...

You look amazing even after your descent into wine hell!! maybe the secret is wearing yellow so you can manage to be radiant as a sunbeam!!
Too bad for your friend,after seeing her in your posts I got very attached to her too..I hope she had an awesome birthday party!!
Your hat is beautiful and I love your hair very much!!

Vix said...

You look glorious, I don't believe you could possibly have a hangover, unless it's that 60s effect hiding the green complexion!
You outshine the gorgeous backdrop with those killer tights and crocheted waistcoat and that insanely fab hat.
Boo to hangovers but yay for the fun we have getting into such a state!
Love you!
Vix

I love the pic of the roses so much, I've set it as my desktop background.

Anyhoo, the hangover sucks, but it is indicative, usually, of a really fun time! Is that sad? Enh--whatever. Sorry you felt so poorly, but damn, you looked great!

seƱora Allnut said...

love all that mustard color fabulousness and your hat is simply perfect!
And get well as soon as possible, dear, hangovers can be deadly!!

Terri said...

Sounds like you look better than you felt. Love the pics that peak between the leaves.

pastcaring said...

How did I miss this post? I am useless.
You may be hungover in these photos but you look gorgeous as ever. Do fix that frock, it's way too gorgeous to allow it to fall apart completely. And I am very appreciative of the rakish tilt of your hat!
It's like spying some exotic creature frolicing in the undergrowth - caught you! xxxx

lasophia said...

Peek a boo, I see you through the leaves! This effect reminds me of the gran Vix. You are doing it just as well. Wish I had better greenery around me. ahhh.

Miss Peregrin said...

I love these photos, this outfit & your ability to look completely feckin' fabulous with a hangover! I usually look like something that has crawled out of a drainpipe, but you look as amazing as ever! Rock on.
