In which I have a dust up with Dolly and come out on top

Pix by Vanessa !

Crikey, was I pleased to see Frock Friday!
It's been a long week, as one would expect after 5 weeks off galivanting around the States!

After work, a scorching session getting my lady bits deforested, and a wardrobe malfunction, I went out to Rangoon to get myself a Squirrel fix!
I love those sweet squirrels!!!

We went out for lunch at The Station, and Vanessa took my Friday Frock pix for me; she is a gorgeous doll.
The wardrobe malfunction I mentioned was in fact the zip on my frock shitting itself, causing me to run into a thrift store to get a belt to hold my frock together, as I didn't have time to go home and change!
Crisis averted, I held my head up high and carried on!

Now, I know I have these enormous things on the front of me, but sometimes I am unexpectedly confronted by just how Dolly Parton-arama they really when I wear this frock!!!
So have a gratuituous booboid grope on me, darlings!

Frock-80's tastic, opshopped
Cardi-60's, opshopped. Needs buttons!
Tights-San Francisco
Shoes-thrifted in Santa Fe. Painfully high heeled!
Cocktail hat-Madam Butterfly's
Vanity case-Trade Me
Jewellery-gift from G last birthday
Sunglasses-Portland, spotted by G!

I'm totally shagged, and can see myself snuggled in snoozeland early tonight in the middle of a pookie sandwich!

I imagine you must be so exhausted - the first week back after a holiday is ALWAYS a killer!!

You look fab though - even though you had a wee wardrobe malfunction;)

The tights are amazeballs - I know I always say that about your tights, but these ones are especially EPIC!

Ivy Black said...

Looking fabularsehole, love! Those tights are a wonder as are your boobs a flat chested gal, I just look on in awe!!
Have a great and relaxing weekend.

Perdita said...

Happy frock Friday! Love that classic red/white/blue combo... very Olympian (it's everywhere in London thanks to world sports day thingy).

I am frocking, but with a work-unsuitable short lycra number worn as a tunic over trousers. Whereupon it becomes respectable!

Straight Talking Mama! said...

well done on making it through that horrible back to work week!

Looking gorgeous despite wardrobe malfunction!

Melanie said...

Dolly Parton-arama, oh that made me giggle! You look just gorgeous, I love those shoes with those tights!

Miss Simmonds Says said...

Kitty said...

Splendiferous booboids of course, I would never expect less you know, but I'm awesomely loving (yes, I can do that) the spotted tights with this combo.xx.

Sue said...

My first car looked just like the one you are touching up!!! A powder Blue Morris 1100, and if that car could talk!!!! I am in love with your spotted tights!!! And I love red and turquoise together ♥

thorne garnet said...

Good thing you were wearing that cardi!

Lucy Nation said...

Ooh you're looking fine today, particularly that mighty fine bosom of yours! I feel your pain, my booboids are barely containable, to the point where it looks like I've blown them up! Ho hum, such as genetics;(. I love the blue and red combo today. And I agree Vanessa is such a sweetie. I'm not surprised you missed her.

PS. Thanks for the term "booboids". I can't seem to get it out of my head!:) xxx

Vix said...

I hope Miss V didn't object to the deforestation, those squirrels do enjoy their bushes!!!!
You look GORGEOUS! Those tights are to die for, the crippling shoes are as sexy as hell and the booboids are more magnificent than ever! the hat is fabulous on you.
Vanessa's done a fine job with the photos but you are the finest subject and so easy on the eye!
Have a fab weekend & speak SOON! xxxx
Love you! xxxxxxxxxxx

Maria said...

your dollies are magnificent as ever - i lurve your outfit its just fabulous and i need those tights right now x

pastcaring said...

Red and turquoise. Hat. Crazy high heels. Booboids. Scorched earth lady garden. Vanity case. Spotty tights. Wardrobe malfunctions.
Helga's back, all is right with the world! You make me SO happy just looking at your fabularsity.
So pleased you got to play with Miss V, and hope you are refreshed after an early night snuggling with your darling pookies.
I think you could do a marvellous Dolly tribute. G can be Kenny Rogers.
Love you more than islands in the stream, y'all! xxxxxxxxx

MistressCatgirl said...

The color combo is magnificent. The polka dot tights are flipping awesome too. I prefer stockings though. Tights never fit me right since I have a longer torso.

Clara Turbay said...

I see here a lot of expression and character, I like!
