Special effects by lunatic and drink



Due to popular request, here is the frock that made such a fleeting appearance last week, in all it's shiny lurid lurex-ness!
We had friends and bandmates Si and Nix over for dinner on Saturday night, and it is quite the dinner party kind of frock, I feel.



I rustled myself up a new lemon velvet bow, too.
I'd had this teensy bit of lemon velvet lying about for years!
I'm pleased to have finally found something to do with it.








Frock-the sexacious Desiree
Sequin cape-Wasteland, San Francisco. It's pretty damned old, and wasn't actually a cape....it was a little, little jacket, but now it's a cape, thanks to some small machinations on my part!
Brooch-60's, a market
Necklace-70's blingtastic,opshopped
Earrings-the sweetest Squirrel
Shoes-tiger taming Vix


Our back deck gets the very last of the evening sun, which PeePee enjoys from a prime position by the back door.
It was making her rather languid!



Our Nix turned up in an outrageously fabularse Osti frock she picked up that evry morning!
Dammit, I love it!
But I was the epitome of a good and gracious hostess and didn't wrestle her for it.
Time enough for that.....ha, not that it would fit my booboids....
Woe!

Grrrrrrrr! That frock is fabulous on you, ever better for a second viewing! I adore the capelet and the fuck-off bastard massive yellow bow, too!
Look at Peepee languidly basking in the sun! Our poor buggers are fighting over the blanket and acting most appallingly as the snow's bigger than they are!

Sufiya H. said...

That dress looks fab in the pictures, and i agree: the bow was a good use for that velvet.. And how cute is a cat named "PeePee"? Hope you never have to go shouting about the neighbourhood looking for her! I heard about someone who named their cat "Whoopee". That lasted until one night when the cat went astray one evening and they found themselves out on the porch yelling "Whoopee! Whoopee!"

Jet Kuhn said...

My what a glorious frock on you, I think I heard angels sing! Love what you did with the sequins, there are never enough sequins in life! XXX

Oh good lord, you are a sparkly Golden Goddess in that frock! You are radiating light and heat and all manner of hot stuff, darling! I bet you had a fabularse dinner party. Nix' dress is pretty spectacular too.
Ahh, look at Miss PeePee in the sunshine! Kitties know how to grab the best spot, don't they? How can you resist curling up with her?! xxxx

Misfits Vintage said...

Holy BEJAYZUS that lurex number with the little sequinned capelet and the FUCK-OFF velvet bow is the BEST THING I HAVE EVER SEEN IN MY LIFE!!! You are absolutely PERFECT in this ensemble, my love! As for Nix's new frock, I don't know if I've squeeze my magnificent pair of peaches in either, but I'm willing to fight her for the pleasure of finding out!

Love you more than velvet!

I am drowling over that cape. And your dress is absolutely fabulous! And everytime I see photo's of your house it makes me so happy. I know I have said it already a few time's but I love the colors so much. You have such a lovely house.
Peepee is really enjoying the sun. Overhere the cats are enjoying the heating. There is a little bit of sun already, but not enough...
Love Nix's dress. I think my butt wouldn't fit....
