So won't you say you love me?!



G and I were on the way home from a family lunch in Upper Riccarton the other day when we came across this bridge in the University grounds....and G was straight into a Dirty Dancing moment!
What could a gal do but prance around on the bridge in homage to a fabulous film that I need to watch again as it's been far too long?!


Yeah.
Mountains of Helga.
One of those JEEZ, are they really my boodboids?! moments.
Crikey.
I must be the one packing the watermelons!


Maybe I can somehow throw these melons over the side....


Arse!

Frock-70's, my gorgeous Sarah on our first meeting in Sydney 2011! I've altered it by taking off the sleeves and making a jabot, and I also added a collar for a more 60's feel!
Tights-retail
Shoes-a stripper shop in Vegas; G bought them for me
Handbag-60's vanity case
Sunglasses-opshopped
Brooch-opshopped
Earrings-a market
White bow-Japantown, San Francisco

I'll make you so proud of me!

You are the Queen of Red, White, and Blue! You look scrumptious in those polka dots! What a great case, too!

I haven't watched "Dirty Dancing" in ages either. There was a time when I watched it every day after school :)

I dread to think what would happen if my booboids and your's ever met. I'm betting it would be fun :P

edie pop said...

Fantastilicious!!!!Are those wonderful melo..breasts real? They are letal weapons and you are dress to kill, can I die twice?
That polkadots dress and your shoes are so beautiful that I can barely look at them and so are you, nobody puts Helga in a corner!!!

Enjoy the sunshine & lots of love!!!
xxxxxxx

Rose&Bird said...

Lovely dress and it's great to see the sun - I have to get my Sun fix from you and Sarah for the next few months x

pastcaring said...

Nobody puts Helga in a corner! Not with those Booboids of Magnificence, it would be a sin not to frolic and pose and flaunt them!
Looking just gorgeous, Baby, love the spotty dotty altered frock and those fabularse shoes.
And touching up your make up while posing? Multitasking, darling!
We need to see you and G doing some DD moves now please, a little vid would be peachy. The "how do you call your lover boy? Come here, lover boy! " sequence would be good! xxxxxxxxx

Vintage Coconut said...

Well hello there Miss Melons!
The bridge is rather fantastic and so is your outfit. Those shoes are sexy and I love your bag.

OP SHOP MAMA said...

You're all red white and blue again!!
Very cool bridge! And nice melons!

Looking immaculate. x

Veshoevius said...

XXOO

Misfits Vintage said...

Oh that dress make over is AMAZING! You sure do know how to see the potential in a frock, mi amor. I suspect I have gotten rid of more than one fab piece just for not being the frock-visionary that you are!

You know I love your bosoms more than life itself. The shoes and bag are GORGEOUS and hello, there's the red white and blue again! YAY! You are so MAGNIFICENT!

Love you more than Patrick Swayze! xxxxx

Forest City Fashionista said...

Fab makeover on the dress! You are your own one woman parade in the red, white and blue. I love your rings - we have the same taste in finger adornments!

thorne garnet said...

The view from the bridge is amaze-balls!

Trudie said...

You are frocking fantastic in that dress and those tights are fire engine red, love it. It's like you've showed up Snow White and told her how it should be done. I seriously love everything about thusoutfit and you look amazing.

Trudie said...

* agrrr comment box flipped out me I meant this outfit. X

mary van note said...

Man, you altered this dress to perfection! It looks like it was made that way, so kudos on making it how it was meant to be worn ; )

Melanie said...

I swear those tights give you special levitation powers - and that can't be easy with those magnificent melons! Goodness!! Love this photo shoot.

Vintage Bird Girl said...

Oh what a frock...the perfect shade of blue, with polkadots & THAT collar. You are just too clever. Your booboids look fabularse in that frock!!!!! :) Xx

Max said...

claud is on my lap. she pointed and said excitedly "minnie mouse"!!! you do channel minnie beautifully x

Sue W @ Living the Good Life said...

It's only fitting that that bridge be carpeted!! ;) for your walk down the catwalk! Purrfeck! :D

Fiona said...

I've never seen DD so I haven't a bloody clue what you're referring to but I'm guessing there must be some raunchy moves on a bridge? I bet Patricks partners' booboids weren't as magnificent as yours tho'
You are the queen of red, white and blue ensembles and this one's deffo a winner.

Vix said...


What amazing colour!!!
I've never seen Dirty Dancing so I'll just have to imagine there's a fabularsly sexy woman resplendent in red, white and blue nearly having your eyes out with her booboids. I must watch it now, sounds like a Russ Mayer spectacular!
That frock is awesome, I love you in a jabot, they are sorely missing from my wardrobe!
Loads of lurve!

Trees said...

White shoes and red tights *swoon*

c... said...

But I do love you !! Så fab pic´s !!

mancunianvintage said...

LOVE that dress - and such a cute collar - very nice!

Lucy Nation said...

Oh Helga you're rocking the red white and blue combo again! I love these pics. The booboids look fantastic. Those high neck dresses do give them a platform don't they?! I love the ruffle (jabot?) you added, so Slocombesque. I haven't watched Dirty Dancig for years either xxxx

bonsaimum said...

Those shoes are to die for--omg soooo white, sunglasses-now!

Miss Simmonds Says said...

I feel about dirty dancing the way you feel about Phil Collins... but I'd watch you and G doing a remake any time! You look gorgeous - look at them stripper shoes!! Divine xxxx

menopauselsupermodel said...

How can we not love you when you are a vision of magnificence in polka dotted blue with those sexy booby-enhancing jabots!!
Those shoes are awesome!!! Stripper shoes?? Must come with a sexy school-girl costume (hey--now that might entice G to put in a screen door!!!!)
The scenery around you is stunning!
mucho love!

Bella Q said...

One: I love you.

Two: there should be a Nobel prized for this outfit. Really digging red tights and white Mary janes and the jabot is just jubilicious. As always your way of dress makes me happy and giddy. Hugs to your G!

Loo xx from Jumbles and Pompoms said...

Do you know, I saw DD many moons ago and didn't like it. I know! I need to watch it again. The dress is fantastic and I love the shoes. xx

karensomethingorother said...

Be myyyy, be my baby--BE MY LITTLE HELGA!!!

Oh, I freaking love Dirty Dancing. NOBODY PUTS BABY IN A CORNER.

I also love the pairing of RED tights with the blue dress. TAKE THAT, FASHION WIMPS.

Best frock makeover ever! This dress is adorable, and it looks amazing on you (and your incredible booboids).

The dress looks fab, the transformation you did was great!

princesspincurls.com said...

You look so cute in this fun spotty dress...and your very clever giving it a sewing make over too! I love the idea of using a vanity case as a handbag aswell, I have a pink one (not vintage) that I have used for the same. xx Princess Pin Curls

Kitty said...

I was just gonna comment on your stupendous boobage then did it yourself, LOL and LOL again!! Who gives a feck, you always look brilliant no matter what the hell you do!!!
