Fry the anchovies with garlic


Now, whilst I would love to have you believe that vintage shops open especially for me, as I am a rockstar.....I have to confess that it isn't true.
Retro Funk aren't that fussy, really!
No, they just have a sign with a phone number saying to ring if you would like a nosy, and we did!
And we were very grateful!


It was quite spiffing,though, having the entire shop to ourselves....


Frock-50's, Etsy
Jacket-60's, opshopped
Tights-opshopped?? Can't remember, but they had a groovy 70's packet!
Shoes-Trade Me
Handbag-60's vanity case, from Junk and Disorderly, now rubble
Headpiece and bracelet-lovely Amy of Wildfell Hall
Faux pearl clip on earrings-60's, opshopped
Faux pearls-opshopped
Pendant-the spectacular that is Sarah
Faux pearl ring-glorious Vix
Multi coloured plastic ring-darling Sue

Well, any shop would be MENTAL if they didn't open just for you - they should be so LUCKY as to have your gloriousness in their shop!!!

Darling, you look sedately divine in this ensemble - I would take advice, medicine or a spanking from you.

The shoes and bag are FABULOUS of course. And did you make that gorgeous mosaic house number with out own fair hands???

Love you more than pearls, Sarah xxx

I love that little handbag and your pretty shoes! You look great as usual! I bet they were all like "ooooh it's that Helga off the blog, we should open for her, she's a legend"
Love your little headpiece/hat thingy!

Now don't go and spoil it with FACTS, Helga, when we are all so completely in awe of your rock star fame and I-shop-alone-at-midnight-cos-I'm-a-celeb status! Haha!
You look delicious, gorgeous paisley print on your frock. Is it paisley? It's kind of a straight-line organised paisley! Anyway, the colours are beautiful, as are your bag and shoes, and YOU! xxxxxxxxx

I love all the gold n your outfit. I need to find myself a bow fascinator too.
You must feel like a rock star to have people open a store up for you. The only store that opened up for me was the one I worked at.

Krista said...

The door is as fabulous as you are! I love the color combo and the address in stained glass is the dopest flyest OG pimpin thing I have ever seen! I love you in these glasses, "hands" on the desk dammit!
Really looking forward to your visit in July :)
