Come take this hand at twilight's door


Astonishingly, we had the most incredibly hot Summer's day yesterday, just perfect for an evening ride over to Si and Nix' for a barbeque.
Got to make the most of it while it lasts, it'll be Winter before we know it!


This road along the river (the Avon) is pretty fecked from the earthquakes.
The banks sunk down and inwards about 2 metres, I believe, rendering the surrounding land uninhabitable.
All the houses on both sides of the river, and for quite a distance, are being slowly demolished, and hopefully we'll end up with a lovely wetlands/park almost on our doorstep!
A silver lining to a very grey cloud.





Wearing:
Frock- 60's, a market
Fishnets-retail
Shoes-Trade Me
Handbag-60's, thrifted in New Mexico
Sunglasses-vintage shop in Portland
Flower-consignment store in New Mexico
Earrings-80's clip on's, opshopped
Beads-60's, from the sweetest Squirrel
Plaited hairpiece-bought the hair in Portland and made it myself
(I have some pink too, that I simply must do something with!)


Taking inspiration from Vix's wonderfully bright eyeshadow, and wearing bright orange, from a set she sent me a while back!



Also taking inspiration from Sarah, and wearing my flower as a brooch, instead of in my hair!

Val Sparkle said...

The shot with the orange traffic cone is inspired! Your color scheme is so cohesive. It's hard to say which part of your outfit I like best - the hairpiece (squee!), the sunnies (wow!), the fishnets (ooolala). For me it's got to be the wicker handbag - I'll be looking for one of my own now!

Lynn Dylan said...

Ewwww, lovely lovely pictures!! I love that orange glow. If only I could do that color! I would look very sallow, but you rock it!!
