I'd like to sneeze you

I had a bloody sneezing fit just before taking these pix, hence the glasses.
You don't want to see me with puffy, watery, allergic eyes!
It's a year round thing for me, has been since my late 20's.

Aside from that, it's a spectacular day here!
And I have frizzy hair?!
Weird, but I'll go with it!
We have our 2 nephews and niece staying over tonight.
That translates to a playstation/chocolate/icecream/spareribs frenzy, in no particular order.
Our niece will probably end up with my laptop, watching music videos, whilst the boys whoop away....
I'll probably be in bed early!

Frock-opshopped. It has a matching crinoline somewhere, I think it was an Alice in Wonderland costume! I shortened it quite a bit, added the white vintage trim, and stuffed the crinoline in a box...somewhere...
Belt-garage sale
Fishnets-retail, my growler ate through them, so they become stockings
Shoes-Trade Me
Handbag-60's, opshopped
Hat-60's, Desiree
Chain necklace-Vix
Necklace-Shabby Chic market.
I forgot that there was one last week!
First Sunday of every month Spring-Autumn.
Last one next month, I better get my arse on down there!

See I was totally tempted the other day to buy a Tim Burton rip off Alice costume now I realise this is a fabulous idea, you look wonderful. I actually really dig the fizzy hair=mermaid! xxx

Miss Simmonds Says said...

my growler ate through them - is the best thing I've heard all day. I'm so jealous of your ability to suit every colour ever! And you have fantastic legs too! I'm hoping I look like you and Curtise when I'm 38 or whatever age you two are ;P

Miss Claire said...

i THOUGHT it looked very Alice in Wonderland! And you are looking delicious, sneezes and all! I sneeze a lot too, it's so annoying! I can never work out if I have a cold coming on or if it's just allergies. maybe I'm allergic to Chomby! Am definitely allergic to cats...

Your hair is so divine, makes me regret cutting mine all off :(

Meow! Xxxxxxxx

That dress is lovely and the accessories are DIVINE!!!
For sure you look better than any Alice of the world, you are a wonder!!

pastcaring said...

I think you would make a fabulous Alice, chasing after that pesky Cheshire Cat and playing croquet with a flamingo and a hedgehog. Or have I been on the hookah with that caterpillar, it's all gone a bit "White Rabbit" by Jefferson Airplane...
Back to you, darling! Gorgeous frock, love the white trim you added, superb hat, glorious hair (frizzy or not), wonderful sunnies, and how lovely to hear about your hungry growler again, she's not been discussed for a while, hahaha!
How kind of Clare (Miss Simmonds) to assess us as 38, that made me guffaw out loud!
Bet the niece and nephew LOVE staying with fabulous Auntie H and Uncle G - coolest rellies in the world, I reckon! xxxxxxx

MistressCatgirl said...

That's a great outfit. I love ankle strap shoes. Be they heels or Mary Janes. Nieces and Nephews are fun because at the end of the visit they go back to their parents and love the fun they had with you.


My gorgeous in blue, ahhhhhhhhhhhh
Have a lovely weekend

Krista said...

This outfit is simply delicious and my favorite part has to be those sexy fish net knee highs, I want to remove them with my teeth! MEOW! You really can turn anything into something fabulous with that machine of yours. Have fun with the kids tonight! You hair looks GORGEOUS frizz and all!

Maria said...

spectacular and so so cheeky, i didnt even know you could get blue fishnets, i must leave my cave more often x

karensomethingorother said...

the blue fishnet stockings are pure sexiness, and such a fun surprise under the "demure" dress. Sorry about your allergies, but who would ever know because you look great!
Thanks for your lovely twitter comment. I intend to GARGLE some cosmos!

lasophia said...

I think I've sneezed my brains out a couple of times. It usually happens after I have just done all my makeup. boo. You are looking frocking hot in this blue and red ensemble. Reminds me of the Citizen Rosebud's color blocking this week. Have fun with the boys!

Fiona said...

I did snort when I read about your growler - priceless. Enjoy the kiddies.

Alex said...

Frizzy hair? Pffft! You look spectacular, as always.

OP SHOP MAMA said...

Naughty growler! LMAO!
Loving the turqoisey type of blue. I'm seeing a lot of it around lately. I think I'll paint a wall turqoise this weekend if I can get my shite together.

Dylan said...

If it wasn't for the fact that I am perfectly content with my Mr Babe of Deliciousness and if it wasn't for The fact I had a hysterectomy 20 yrs ago.......I would frikkin marry you and have your babies. You are my style icon and brighten up my day , every day. Keep on keeping on x

Heather, 29 Skirts said...

This is one of my all-time favorite color combinations! The blue of that dress is perfect! I love the rockabilly-ness of this, and the shades are really cool, even if they were added for practical purposes!

Anonymous said...

Nieces and nephews should make your evening interesting! I need to read your posts first thing in the morning--to wake me up with a burst of color.

Miss Peregrin said...

Another gorgeous outfit on a gorgeous lady! I love the frock, love the glasses, love the head piece, and love the frickin' stockings!! I'd love to come and stay with Aunty Helga & Uncle G - I bet you guys are a real good time!

Trees said...

I friggin love that frock - I bet you're a pretty rad Aunty to hang out with xoxox

Melanie said...

You live in a doll house! It's so beautiful with the orange walls and lime green trim. So no wonder you are popping in your blue dress and kitty-coutured fishnets. The sunglasses are marvellous, which must make having allergy eyes a little less painful. Gorgeous all round!

Penny-Rose said...

I like the idea of converting tights into stockings....I have never found blue fishnets!!

Mary Lou said...
