Like seven inches from the midday sun


Ooo, there are big, manly tools and machinery lurking about in our street at the moment.
It's rather exciting, and I'm quite drawn to this big hunk of turqouise metal!
G reckons I might be able to charm the workers into letting me try it out, but I'm not so sure!






For the moment I'll just frisk about in front of it.....
I yearn to touch it....and I feel just a little bit like I'm in Toto's "Rosanna" video....




You may recognise a famous Muscha design on my back, star and peacock feather additions my own design.
I adore Muscha's work; the tattoo on my left arm is also a Muscha.





Frock-opshopped
Belt-garage sale
Crinoline-Etc ( a local vintage shop)
Tights and chain necklace-the divinity that is Vix
Shoes-Trade Me
Headpiece-won it from a giveaway at gorgeous Hannah's a while back
Pendant-opshopped
Necklace-a market
Earrings-cobbled together by moi with opshopped bits
Sunglasses-Wasteland, San Francisco



All this heavy machinery makes me thrust my booboids to the sky!


And just look at this enormous truck!
Arrrrrrrrrrgh!

I had to have a nice, stiff vodka to calm down.

Don't know about me being divinity, in that frock it's definitely you, baby! You look gorgeous, that dress fits you so well and that delicious glimpse at your tat, phwoar, I've come over all peculiar!
What spectacular big toys to play with, they must let you have a go if only so we can see you in a hard hat in front of the wheel!
Love you! xxxxxxx

WHAT? HOW? I mean seriously the dress with the crinoline peeking out...the fabulousness that is your bling, the tights, the shoes...Too much yumminess for one post...The tattooed back is my dream! Marry me?

Claire said...

Blimey - this whole Helgarisation of a 50s look is amazing! You look absolutely stunning - also agree the tat as 'back jewellery' (why can I never spell that) is the je ne sais quoi of splendidness.

Loving every item of the outfit - and the colours together. Just beautiful!

That's a whole lot of boobage to be thrusting to the sky. That dress looks fabulous with the crinoline beneath it. I reckon those guys would let you on their machines, I've talked my way into a fire engine before. Xx

Melanie said...

I can just imagine you cavorting around in a music video! I love your dress, the colours are lovely together xxx

Devil made in Heaven said...

Ow that dress! That dress is fabulous! And I love your Muscha tattoo. I am also a big fan of Muscha and we have a few plate's with Muscha paintings that we still have to put on the wall....
And you look stunning as ever.

Why darling I barely even notice that hunk of metal with you looking so friggin sexy! The petticoat poking out along with your beautiful back piece has me flustered before sunrise, thanks for that sweet thang! You really are our very own rock star!
Loveyou!

Gorgeous color combo!!
I'll bet you could hypnotize those construction guys with the booboids of Truth and Justice and have them do your bidding easily!!

Mrs. D said...

I don't think I'd seen your backpiece before, it's truly divine. Mucha's work is so beautiful...
I love the dress and the hint of orange peeering out when you hold the skirt in your hand :)

freckleface said...

Wow, you look gorgeous in that outfit. I think you could charm the workers into just about anything you little saucepot! Did they come out and watch your performance?

Love the petrol blue and terracotta together, so sophisticated. That dress is made for you. xxxxx

Vintage Bird Girl said...

Oh I really really like this frock Darling! It looks so spectacular with the red crinoline. I've been meaning to ask you about your tattoos. I was rather curious as to what the designs were. You look so sexalicious & svelt, & I love your hair with the headband thingy. Enjoy that machinery. Xx

daiseedeb said...

Oh ya...this one really showcases your tattoos perfectly. You are an artist, my dear!!!

thorne garnet said...

Love seeing your tats. You look lovely and I'd let you drive my big truck...if I had one.

OP SHOP MAMA said...

That's a great dress that one - two of my favourite colours right there in one spectacular frock. Yeh loving the machinery.

Wendy said...

That dress!!! Omg I LOVE it!!!!!!!!! The whole outfit is perfect! You have -the- best fashion sense. Seriously.

bonsaimum said...

You look divine as always. I just love the colour of your dress. :)

The Pugnacious Vegetarian said...

I have had such a hard on for red shoes lately. These are just divine!

Melanie said...

Don't get me started on heavy equipment! Especially backhoes and bulldozers... Of course you need some thrusting action to anchor yourself. The crinoline is the perfect girly equipment for this outfit. I hear grinding gears.

liz said...

I don't think I've seen the Mucha tats before! Faaaaabulous. He's one of my favorite artists of all time. :)

owlinalarkworld said...

You should be in West Side Story with that sumptuous petticoat. Use it to flag down the machinery.

Sabina said...

I live this whole outfit, especially the dress and the flower headband. Of course I also tend the think ink shown off around clothes is a great accessory as well.

I'm in love with your frock! You look like a sexy hot Flamenco dancer! xxx
