Everybody lies to get themselves real high


So we had our first gig with our new drummer, Jeff!
It was very casual, and pressure free, (at a work function of Jeff's) which was fabulous, and we rocked it!
Now we have a proper gig at the Wunderbar in 2 weeks, hurrah!


My opshopped 50's coat was just the right thing for a cold Saturday night.
Glamourous and snug!

What a great dress! You look gorgeous as always, dear Helga :)

pastcaring said...

Oh my goodness, get that fabul-arse over here so I can give it a slap or two!
I acore your frock, it fits you just perfectly and looks spectacular with the petticoat and leopard print tights. I adore your necklace too. And your beautiful hair is particularly gorgeous here, makes me sigh with envy!
Fame awaits, darling; first the work do, next the Wunderbar, then the WORLD! xxxx

MistressCatgirl said...

You look great! That dress is pretty sweet too. I like the gold detailing on it. I was watching "Walk the Line" and was admiring June Carter's country singer-wear. I like the rich colors and details.

menopauselsupermodel said...

I absolutely adore your whole outfit--but those tights were just icing on the spctacular Helga-cake!!
I'm sure the crowd at your gig were mesmerized by the vision of fabuloisity before them!!!

You got style and good taste.

Bella Q said...

Holy moly! YOU are the prettiest creature in that square dance of a frock- lovely neckline and print. I love how it hugs you! And the leopard leggings are just the thing to keep your prettiness from veering too much on the Northside of sugarville. Rawr!

Hannah said...

Squeal that frock is amazing on you, I love it! So glad your new drummer is going well with the band, you are a true rockstar with a drink in yer hand! xxxx

Sue said...

In a previous life you would have be on stage at the Moulin Rouge, I can see you front and centre with your skirt up!!!! Nothing wrong with drinking while you work, you weren't the driver were you??!!

Miss Tallulah Porkchop said...

*looks bewildered* How did I not know you were a fabulous singer, in a fabulous band?

Trees said...
