U got the horn so why don't u blow it

I've been fiddling.
Sometimes a good old fiddle can be rather cathartic.
Makes a change from being annoying.....on which I have spent a little time and effort on today, I confess.

Frock-late 60's, I think, from the sweetest Squirrel
Jacket-80's, opshopped, cropped and shaped a bit by moi
Slip-from the seaxcious Desiree
Belt-our patient Vix
Shoes-gift from co worker (!)
Hairbow-opshopped mans bow tie with a clip attached
Sunglasses-60's, Wasteland, San Francisco
Necklace-New Orleans
Bloody Mary-mixed by G, he makes them just the way I like 'em!


PS: I'm thinking about taking you up on the green and yellow colour combination....

I love this colour palette - sea greens and greys! - and how your belt buckle is a perfect bow. This outfit is really beautiful on you. I wish MY coworkers gave me shoes!!!

Annoying? How could you be annoying?? Maybe others are just annoyed by your magnificence!
You look wonderful--love the print on the dress and the belt is just too cute.


Krista said...

I love all your bits the sweet bow belt and that fabulous necklace. Green and yellow always reminds we of the Green Bay Packers, make it remind me of you!

How is it that you can wear houndstooth and a print and look so damn good? I love that you crop jackets and turn sometime that's meh, into something wow.

But what (or who) have you been fiddling with? The mind boggles. I am quite annoying, I consider it an art form.
Gorgeous frockage, darling, and cropping that houndstooth jacket was a master stroke.
And the Mary cameo necklace is a beauty.
Loving the oval/circular pics. Why have I never thought of that? Might pinch your idea... See, told you I am annoying.
Ask G to make a Bloody Mary for me too, please!
PS. Do it do it do it, you can rock yellow and green, I just know it! xxxxx

The Style Crone said...

Great outfit, fiddling or not! And those shoes! I'm in love!

Vix said...

Yay! I remember you telling me about that dogtooth jacket! You've done an amazing job, it was well worth a fiddle and looks ace with the Squirrel frock adn killer cameo!
Bloody Mary? I'll have a try, it's been 10 days since alcohol touched my lips, what if I go off it?
Love you!

Estilo Hedónico said...

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

Lovely belt! I was so hoping that you'd be blowing a horn though!

Perdita said...

Another epic outfit win! How do you do it?


Miss Simmonds Says said...

I adore this blue, brown, grey mix - gorgeous!! you are the queen of colour xxxx

Misfits Vintage said...

Ooh love this sophisticated GROWN UP colour combination, darling! The necklace is magnificent and I love the jacket/frock/tight/shoes.

I also avoid the green and yellow - I hate the yukko Aussieness of it. But if anybody rock the bejayzus out of it, it's YOU!

Love you more than MARY! Sarah xxx

Lynn Dylan said...

Oh, I LOVE those shoes!!! And the jacket! And I cannot imagine anything annoying YOU or you annoying anyone ELSE. ~:D

You make me think of my mum when she was younger here Helga, I mean that in a good way, she was a very stylish creature back in the day, I must take after my dad.
I've had those days when I know I'm being annoying but I just can't stop myself, other days I'm just blissfully unaware of my annoyingness. xx

The Pugnacious Vegetarian said...

How adorable are those shoes? Now I want a bloody Mary!
