Lovely frock ! The location was amazing - what a house !
Lucky you , the rain is pouring down on a grey autumn day in Sweden...No umbrella..

Look at you in the sunshine, rather ladylike in that grand setting! What a beautiful house. Love the print on your curtain couture frock, and that little jacket looks perfect at a shorter length. And purple shoes, I suddenly want - no, NEED - some purple shoes!
Have a great weekend, love. xxxx

Penny-Rose said...

You make a curtain look fantastic. What a fab location too - thank goodness it was not damaged by the quakes (or was it?)

Melanie said...

Wow, you wear that curtain in the most divine fashion. I can't believe you sewed that! Clever, clever. You are an inspiration. I want to see what's in your bag.

Perdita said...

Although it's not autumn over there, your colours are perfect for this chilly morning in the UK. I love the tights/dress combo as ever, you work opaques to the max.

Sue said...

Diggin' your purple shoes with your orange tights!!! Hope the sun stays for the weekend for you ♥

Little Scribbler: sh*t I wear, think, eat, drink said...

Hat - perfection.

Shoe/tights combo - killer.

Wow! I am impressed on your frock-creating abilities! Wish I could sew so well. That house is amazing, made even more so by your outfit! It's breathtaking!! And THANK YOU THANK YOU ever so much for the SQUEE guidelines. I will be SQUEEING appropriately when I go out thrifting this morning!!

Another gorgeous outfit. I adore the dress and the tights are perfect with it. The cropped coat is fab too - they're hard to find, I've never thought of shortening one before. My sewing skills wouldn't be up to it though I don't think :)

That house is so impressive too.

What a splendid setting for such a fabulous bird! Riccarton Bush, eh? I'd be tempted to add some rather naughty graffiti to that sign!
Your curtain couture frock is one of my most favourites ever and combined with the orange tights adn purple shoe combo it's making me spectacularly frisky!
Love you!

Is every day fun to get dressed Helga, because you have such fabuloso outfits.

mary van note said...

I love this outfit! It's so great that you made that dress from vintage curtains because when I saw it it instantly reminded me of my old grandmother's couch that I loved so much. Maybe they were the matching curtains to her couch! anyway, love everything about this.

jen storer said...

One of the loveliest vintage combos I have seen in a long time. Every piece is gorgeous. Great shots too! x
