So we had our last band practice (before we go away) and casual cocktails on Saturday night.
The cocktails were casual because we don't know where our cocktail books are and we couldn't really be arsed trying to sort out a cocktail menu...but we felt we needed formal wear anyways.
Leopard waistcoat and pants made by moi
Vinatge shirt and belt-opshopped
70's shoes-Hunters and Collectors, a shop that used to have a great retro section but went upmarket some years back.
60's frock-Two Squirrels
Fishnets-retail, my growler ate them, so they became stockings
Shoes-opshopped in Australia
Brooch and earrings-gifts from G
Necklace-the tatted "chain" was opshopped, the rose bit was from darling Daniel, and the cameo was off some trashy chain store necklace. I hot glued it together earlier.
On my head-the fascinator bit was also from Lucy, I think, and I hot glued some glittery butterflies on it.
(I found my hot glue gun, O JOY)
80's lace gloves-opshopped
I had a wee accident putting on my fabulous Barry M turquoise eye shimmer stuff (a gift a while back from my beloved Vix )....it ended up down my face, so I just went with it....
The two on the left are fairly recent aqusitions, due to G's Trade Me acumen!
We haven't decided where we'll be putting them up. We have a fourth head, but are not sure where it is!
Why yes, a gratuitous booboid shot!
Our friend Alannah bought around a pile of late 60's/early 70's magazines for me!
There's some scintillating articles in them, and some fabulous frockage!
My favourite party trick.
