I make a hole just to see how see through clean I can cut you



Yah BOO, it's Thursday, and I went out for dinner last night, and am going out for dinner and drinks tonight, and it's just so naughty to be out and about on school nights!
Talk about a rebel without a clue!
Gawd, I'm just so outrageous.
We're out to see Devilskin with Cousin Phil tomorrow night, and then band practice Saturday night.......
Crikey!
O, well, there'll be plenty of time to hole up during Winter, so what the hell!

You are having a very busy week and it does feel naughty to be out in a school night!!!!
This is the way to wear red on V day and the way to personalize an outfit. The red boots are a fantastic touch.
Feliz Dia de Santo Valentin!

'Naughty' and 'Helga' are two words which were created to be used together. Often :D

Fantastic boots, but you know what they say about ladies with red shoes? No knickers! Should've flashed them to protect your reputation. All this out on a school night, what fun. Xx

pastcaring said...

Joining in the shiny red boot lovefest! Shiny shiny, shiny boots of leather, whiplash girlchild in the dark...
You look too pretty and polka-dotty to be TOO Miss Whiplash, but who knows what's in that vanity case?

You are a busy bee at the moment, lots or wining and dining and music and good company - it sounds bloody brilliant!
Love you more than Venus! xxxxx

Val Sparkle said...

You're just a poke-a-dotty valentine!

Ulla-Marie Nilsson said...

Your mix of some sort of housewife look combined with the delicious rockish cool style with a dash of irony and cockiness (hope I have chosen the appropriate word) ... You're awesome.

Wendy said...

I would have shit myself too if I stumbled on to those boots! Amazing outfit, as always! Perfect for Valentines!

onceupon said...

Actually dying over how perfect this outfit is.

Frocktasia said...

I'm not surprised that you nearly shat yourself with glee at finding those bright fire engine red boots...they are hot sauce!
Gorgeous get-up and you look wonderful in it!
Lot's of love,
Jennie

iriscostume said...

Needs sauce shot of side view of heels! To admire them in all their possible platform/stilhetto glory.

CityScape Skybaby said...

I remember you umming and aahing over that dress Helga, I'm so glad you got it, it looks fabulous on you. I love those boots too, I had a white pair like them when I was at primary school in the 70's and I thought I was the bee's knees in them, but the bright redness of these ones takes them to another level! xx

Hannah said...

Oh my flipping love this dress and those boots are heavenly! xxx

The Pugnacious Vegetarian said...

Polka dots AND shiny, bright red go-go boots? You my dear, have created the perfect outfit!

Miss Simmonds Says said...

Bloody hell!! Look at those boots, what a find, you lucky wench. You look bloody gorgeous, that dress is divine. You naughty girl going out on a school night... I'm jealous!! Also, I still think you ought to cover that case in fake flowers. And don't think I've forgotten about Helga's Hole either....
