With your cheap fur on, or maybe your plastic raincoat



I was striding along the pavement past a few stalls at a street market on Saturday afternoon and heard someone say "look at that fantastic outfit!".......
How very gratifying!
Needless to say I was pleased I was outdoors, or my head swell would have caused me some issues!


I wore:
Frock-60's, Retropolitan
Stole-50's, also Retropolitan
Tights-Portland
Handbag-60's Rex, Rosina Lee
Shoes-Trade Me
Hairbow-made it myself
60's beads-opshopped
Locket-bought it at the market from Ayesha
Earrings-a gift from sweetheart Leisa on Friday!


Is this  a smug expression or what?!
Feck yeah!


We were given this unusual lady lamp by our friend Mych recently.
She's not like any other lady lamp I've seen!
A little repair on her knee and she'll be as good as new!

karensomethingorother said...

Helga, am I a freak for loving the way your hair bow matches your tights? Sorry, but that kind of stuff turns my crank.
Anyhoo, you always look fabulous. I'm surprised you don't hear it more often out on the boring old streets where us boring people walk around.

You are bloody fab.

CityScape Skybaby said...

I love all the green you've been wearing, especially with your red hair, and that lamp is fab, what a find! xx

Melanie said...

That certainly is a fab outfit! Isn't it lovely when people appreciate the effort that's been put in to an outfit xxx

Forest City Fashionista said...

That IS a fantastic outfit, and should be loudly proclaimed as such!! YOu are soooooo FAB in green, especially when it is delicious print dress, and groovy tights.

That is a strange, but oddly appealing lamp; I like her!

Miss Simmonds Says said...

the green goddess strikes again. You look gawdjuss - as per usual. You delicious thing. Anyway, enough perving, I love the lady lamp, get fixed up! xxx

mary van note said...

lady liquor vintage. said...

Gawwwwd, I bloomin' love this dress! The print and sleeves are just too amazing! xo.

Melanie said...

What are those green spirographical bits of heaven on your legs?! Of course your head was swelling. All that divineness could not be contained.

Penelope Cat said...

Ooh more green and paisley - love it! I'm not surprised someone complimented your outfit, it must happen all the time surely :)

Love the lamp too - it's taken me ages to work out what's on the floor by her feet. I thought it was a pair of boots at first but it must be a towel/shawl.

Amber of Butane Anvil said...

Goodness, Helga! - you are totally marvy! I adore your gradient pearls and your tights are superior.

The Pugnacious Vegetarian said...

I love you in green and grey. Also, I have earrings to match that cat pendent :)

Devil made in Heaven said...

Sweety, not only your outfit is fantastic. So are you.
It must be great to get such a compliment about your outfit on the street. Overhere in the small village I live people think I am a bit crazy with my "crazy" outfits. :)

Vintage Bird Girl said...

Ahh a vision in green. What a gorgeous frock....the cut, colour & pattern. And the earings look wonderful on you. If I saw you in the street I would stare in awe, thanks for being an inspiration. Xx
