Like a see-through song in disguise

I'm a typically pragmatic Capricorn, and sometimes pretty frequently "whimsy" and "magical" just make me wanna vomit.
Let's just get on with it!
We all shit/fart/reek after eating lots of garlic, etc etc!

I am the real deal!
Warts and all, babies.
And I do yearn for dreamy perfection...I guess I'm just not capable of it!!

Frock-60's, opshopped
Coat-70's, opshopped
Hat-60's, from my very own real deal Sarah
Necklace-New Orleans! (I know!)
Shoes-Trade Me
Handbag-60's Rex, from the truly sweetest Squirrel !

Look what darling Daniel created for me!
Perked me up no end!

A vision in green and sexy in specs!! That hat and pendant are just spectacular and Daniel's creation is fab!
I know what you mean, those wistful expressions, half drunk cups of tea in twee mismatched cups and cake crumbs drive me mental!
Love! Vix

Stacey said...

You are dreamy perfection! People just don't realise that dreamy perfection shits/farts/reeks too! ;)

Misfits Vintage said...

I absolutely WILT without whimsy - but as you know, darling, I also love a fart joke, swear like a fucking trooper and abhor pretension and bullshit. And I fucking ADORE you!!! You look DIVINE in green, - I bloody LOOOVE that exquisite necklace and I love to see you wearing that fab hat! You are a vision, mi amor, an artwork... and there you are, VENUS!!! GLORIARSE! Love you more than cameos! Sarah xxx

Kitty said...

Whimsy, ha fucking ha ha, that's right up there with fucking floral bunting and shabby shit furniture if you ask me!!

And you're looking beyond gorgeous in green there my love, but damn it looks cold!!

edie pop said...

I'm a very curious person and I'm really into everything in this case I love both: magic and farts!
Today those black accessories blow me away!! I'm not going on doing a silly list of what I prefer of this outfit because I really want to wear everything (that coat, the bag...)
and Daniel is a genius, I think that your style deserve a whole gallery!


Melanie said...

I love you in greeeeeeen! It really suits you! I always feel frumpy after seeing your fabulousness xxx

Sue said...

I love paisley!

MistressCatgirl said...

Lovely! Another great outfit and the jacket is great.

menopauselsupermodel said...

You are a goddess in green my dear!! I abso-freakin'-lutely adore the whole outfit and am drooling over the green coat. Now I NEED a green winter coat, too. (along with a red and a cream like Sarah's)

You are even more of a vision on a half-shell then Venus could've ever dreamt of being.

Forest City Fashionista said...

You ARE the real deal, which is why we all love you! You do look so fab in green, and I want that hat (after you're done with if, of course...). Love Daniel's "Helga on the Half-Shell"!

thorne garnet said...

Whimsy and magical? Ha, one summer our staff gave thank you gifts to me and the costume designer. She got a pretty floaty scarf and a vintage teacup and tea, I got a baby gargoyle and a rubber duck. They also told me I listened to slit your wrist music! Damn, kids!

Hannah said...

You are truly a goddess, no one can rock hats like you can my dear xxx

Maria said...

the mighty venus, how spectacular - you look fancy in your hat and gorgeous in green - have had to have a little sit down though, you fart.....and shit, sweet mercy x

Krista said...

But you are magical you make me smile without even trying, that's some powerful magic my love. You are the real deal, I've seen ya and squeezed ya, real deal baby! You always look killer in green and the photo Daniel did of you is WHIMSICAL!
ILOVEYOU farting, cursing and singing!

delia hornbook said...

We are built the same way when it comes down to it ;-)) Glad to hear your feeling better though. Your looking gorgeous in green, dee xx

Miss Tallulah Porkchop said...

I think you are perfection. Love, love, love the green (and the hat).

Louise Mc said...

I'm not sure whic is more fabulous, your green goddess outfit or you as Venus. Daniel is very creative. XX

Jean at said...

How do you tell who's a Pisces at a party? Yell, "There goes a leprechaun!" and the Pisces will stand up and say,"WHERE?!!!" while everyone else is laughing. Umm, that's me. I admire your Capricornian traits, a straight shooter, and solid friend.

You are fabulous and we have many of the same blogging friends, but I've been too shy or busy to say hello. So here I am, saying hello. I'll be back too, I promise. You look amazing in this green, with your red hair. Makes me think of leprechauns!!! Oops, there I go again. Sorry.

owlinalarkworld said...

You brighten my day.

bonsaimum said...

Those shoes---I loooove those shoes!!

Terri said...

Now, we just need to hang that painting in the Louvre!

One fine day, when you are finished with this lovely green coat, I WANT it!

pastcaring said...

Ha, I'm not very good as whimsy either, rather better at the farting, smelling of garlic, and swearing...
But seeing your beautiful form rising from the shell in Daniel's Birth of Helga makes me feel a little bit magical, even though I know you would be chortling and burping as you stood there being adored!
Gorgeous in green, gorgeous hat, gorgeous cameo, Gorgeous Real Deal YOU! xxxxxxx

Style Sud-Est said...

Daniel made a Venus ! Awesome girl!
Look at your necklace i want it!
I am a so crazy about anything religious and jewelery tops it all!


CityScape Skybaby said...

Short but sweet blog, Helga! I'm a Virgo and they're famous for being perfectionists so it's good to read your blog and be reminded that perfect isn't all it's cracked up to be anyway. It actually makes me think of my hubby, Pat, because he burps, farts, swears, boozes and smokes like a chimney, but he is a gentleman too, in the way he treats people.He's a Sagittarius though, maybe they're a bit like Capricorns, they're next to each other in the zodiac aren't they? I'm waffling now, sorry. xx

Penelope Cat said...

Greeeeeeeeeeeeeeeen! I bloody love green and I adore that green coat. I definitely need a cheery, bright coat for winter too.

You look fab btw and I love the hat and glasses especially.

The Pugnacious Vegetarian said...

Green is your color, darling! I love that green coat and the long white scarf!

Vintage Coconut said...

Ohhh Ohhh Ohhhh Scrumptious green farting women. You look immensely sexy in that coat and frock.

seƱora Allnut said...

love that dress print and your coat and your great floral headpiece!, dear lady, you're an style goddess!
besos & Greeeeen!

Ulla-Marie Nilsson said...

I will travel to Florence next year. Hope to see you in the artmuseum then.

Daniel said...

!!!!! XXGODDESS !! <3 <3 <3 <3

karensomethingorother said...

Oh my god. Frame that picture and put it on your wall right now! Warts and all, Helga? And there I was thinking how much I just simply enjoy seeing your photies and hearing your witticisms, and not even having to pretend to do so.
