Run to the hills, run for your wine

By the time you read this, I will be here , with our lovely wine writer friend Jo , after having had lunch here on the way!
And, what's more, we'll quite likely be somewhat sozzled.
As she is picking me up after work today, I realised I wouldn't have time for a Friday frock I pulled these out of the Helga archives to keep you amused in the interim!
I was trying out a potential New Years Eve outfit, and obviously, it's just at the time G started taking out that wall between the lounge and dining rooms!

Hat-60's, Two Squirrels!
( I have so many hats now; it's gotten to the point where I have forgotten what I have, such as this glorious beast! Shame! )
Frock-opshopped, with a little extra embellishment by moi
60's beads-opshopped
Necklace-Shabby Chic Market
Earrings-Selcuk, Turkey
Fishnets-can't remember, probably retail?
Boots-Trade Me

I'm thinking I should do a hat post soon!
Any objections?!
Malayka has asked for a wardrobe tour, but I'm going to wait until my sewing/dressing room is finished, as currently there is shit for miles in there!
Things to look forward to, darlings!

I ended up wearing a blue lurex frock on New Years Eve instead of this green number, but most of you already know that!
See y'all soon; have splendid weekends, won't you?!
