Roll it over in your mind



After a couple of dark posts, it's back to some more familiar turf.....colour!



I pulled out a late 60's number that I haven't worn in ages.
Perfect for an end to the warm week we've had, all bright and cheery.
I popped into a couple of opshops on the way home from work; found a burgundy chiffon frock, a red velvet hat and a couple of books.
(Forgot to photograph them!)
A reasonable start to the weekend, I feel!


Frock-60's, Trade Me
Jacket-70's, opshopped
Tights-retail
Shoes-Bangkok, a few years back
Vanity case-60's, opshopped
Headpiece-60's, a gift from the bountiful-of-hair Sarah
Sunglasses-opshopped
Necklace-San Francisco
Earrings-Palm Springs


I came home to a Parcel of Joy from the wonderful Terri  on Wednesday afternoon!
You know what we say to Parcels of Joy.......
SQUEE!
A gorgoeus 60's coat, 3 frocks and a bow tie for G!!!
I'm rather excited.
Thank you, lovely!

Happy Friday, sweetlings!

You look fabulous in dark and Gothic black, but colour is your country, I think. (That sounds like it might be rude, but for once I wasn't meaning to be, hahaha!)

That frock is SO pretty, just the thing to cheer up a miserable winter's day. (The Tory MP died when a sex game went wrong. He was found asphyxiated, wearing stocking and suspenders with a satsuma in his mouth.)

Devil made in Heaven said...

I adore your dress! It reminds a bit off the old photo's from my mom. She used to wear simular dresses when she was young. I was a bit very disapointed to hair that she didn't saved one of them. And I really have to say it now... You have beautifull legs!
You got a great parcel. Wonder how you will look in those dresses. That coat is gorgeous.
