Vanity and Vines-Part 3


It's rather civilised to change for dinner....or in our case, late night snacks, as it took quite some time to digest our splendiferous lunch!
I suppose it doesn't help that we were also digesting large quantities of booze....


We had a platter re-run, of sorts!
I could quite happily eat like this all the time!


Jo's frock is from Stop Staring!


Blingy brooches!
The koalas I won from Arianne's giveaway recently, the round one is from Sarah and the clip thingy is from the Shabby Chic market!
My frock is early 60's and from Etsy, the shoes I opshopped in Australia, the flower on my waist was retail, the 60's earrings were opshopped and the pearls in my hair were also opshopped.


A perfect end to a perfect day!
Shame about the hangover I had on Saturday, though......!!!

Trashsparkle said...

Aaaaarrrrgggghhh - my concept of TIME, never my strong point, is totally screwed now! All those fabulous outfits and it's STILL Friday night??? How much luggage did you gals take??? Plus, it feels sort of like "real-time" as if you are still on this winoweekendofwonder - a post a day kind of thing - even though I'm on Wednesday/you're on Thursday.... and this, in the week of the clocks going forward, when I was at work on Monday afternoon, genuinely believing it was Tuesday... no, it makes no sense to me either!! aaaarrrrgggghhh! xxx

That dress is perfect for fancy late night snacks. Any type of vacation should have lots of booze involved. It just makes the vacation much more fun.
