The sky up above-zing, BOOM!


So I will have a few more, rather random Wellington pix for you next post, but in the interim, thought I might get these old (May!) outfit pix out into the world, as I love this frock I got from Sarah last year!
I wasn't too happy with my photo editing, so had chucked them aside to try and do better later....but, really, there's sometimes no helping indoor shots when it's a grey day!
So, tough titty!


I am also rather besotted with these shoes I treated myself to last birthday, and they're the reason why I'm wearing so much blue this year!


Frock-70's, from the scrumptiously jumpsuit obsessed Sarah
Cardi-60's, opshopped
Tights-retail
Shoes-retail
Hat-60's, Two Squirrels
Handbag-60's, a school fair
Scarf-likely 60's, opshopped
Scarf ring-60's, opshopped

And as a bonus....


Here's G's warped outfit for our friends Amber and Bela's Horrorathon (horror movies, back to back) a couple of weeks ago!
He totally gave me the creeps all night with this simple and rather fruity costume....
I went as a Goth, naturally, and that was the inspiration for my appearance in the June issue of  Vogoff !

FIRST BITCHES! OMG G is cracking me up!!! AND can I die for the bar & accessories in the background!!! Adore the lamp! Lucky you getting that pretty frock from Sarah! Love the shoes too!!! XXX

Mariela said...

Wow. G looks like he's ready for some fetish party. He does look pretty funny though.

You look fab! I wish I had a nice go to pair of shoes. Having wide feet and back problems limit me to the type of shoes I can wear.

Misfits Vintage said...

Fuck you Janice - I'm sick of you bitches stealing my firsts!!!

Darling - you and G both look divine in blue! I didn't even recognise that frock - you have Helgafied it exquisitely! As you know, I adore the blue birthday shoes too and all of your perfect accessories (a pleated scarf? Yes please!). G is such a spunkrat.

Love you more than enormous brooches and jumpsuits!

You look so good in blue it's as if it was made for you. I really love the way that you compile your outfits and your rings are amazing!
Not to mention I absolutely love those orange walls.

thorne garnet said...

blue, blue and more blue. Yeah to orange walls! I'm sitting in my orange room and it's so happy!

Funny how shoes can run the wardrobe.. Shoes are the boss and bags there "right hand "
In desperate need of a turqouise bag to go with my new boots..

freckleface said...

Well now, I'm very partial to an interior shot actually, because we get the bonus of all those lovely design details. The lamp is amazing, exactly the sort of thing my grandmother would have had.

We all love you in blue and if there is a hit of orange with it, even better. I love your pose in the second photo, you look so cute with your handbag up front and your eyes not meeting the camera.

G on the other hand...eek! scary! How did he breathe? Oh my word, how did he DRINK?! xxxx

Indigo Violet said...

I love G's outfit, and yours, goes without saying! I used to have pumpkin walls in my dining room, but it was too much for me after a while, I felt like I was living in a giant pumpkin.

Vix said...

I'm going to have nightmares about G, now. That's one scary look, innit?
I adore those shoes and can totally understand why you need to keep wearing them. Sarah's dress is fabulous and your hair is stunning.
Nothing wrong with those pictures, love. Winter's a bastard for blog photos but yours have you in them so they are pure perfection!
Love you! xxxxxxxxx

Camelia Crinoline said...

I can't stop looking at that picture of G. He look so weird. Those blue shoes are fabulous. You are always so good at matching everything.

Laura Lee said...

I just love the combination of royal blue and rich orange in the photo's, it may have been grey outside, but your pictures are so bright and cheery :)
Love your outfit!

Vintage Bird Girl said...

You always satisfy the matchy matchy desires of my heart. I would steal those shoes from you & wear them in a heartbeat if I could wear heels. Blue looks so good on you. Xx

seƱora Allnut said...

you're delightfully matchy and love it, love your dress and that fabulous shoes and bag, and love how your outfit is contrasting on the orange background!
gorgeous!
besos

Retro Chick said...

So co ordinated, I love those shoes with the white tights.

And I snorted with laughter at the last photo and nearly choked :D

Sue said...

You never look blue when wearing blue!! Gorgeous as always. Hope you and G are well stocked with goodies and don't get snowed in down there in the South! Stay safe and warm.

edie pop said...

Now I understand why you love blue so much, I always love those shoes too!
I hate to take my photo on gray days, but I have to admit that the colors are pretty fabulous even if they are a little blurry, Sarah's dress is wonderful!! G's costume is the best! He's a mix of a deformed Violet Beauregarde and a Haute Couture model!
I love you both!!!
xxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Helen Le Caplain said...

Krista Gassib said...

So it's those shoes that have made us all love red white and blue:). Your frock from Sarah is divine as are those shoes of yours. G is scaring me and I'll probably have nightmares, it's like the blue man group gone wrong:)
Xxxoooo

Lucys Lounge said...

Louise McDonagh said...

You do suit blue so very much. That whole outfit is so perfectly coordinated and you look so beautiful in it. Gotta love G's crazy ass costume. Xx

PinkCheetahVintage said...

Your so adorbzzz! Your rings are awesome. And G. WTF!! He is such a bonus!

LandGirl1980 said...

I don't know what I love more - the shoes or the last photo.

BellaBean Vintage said...

You are the goddess of matchiness, that's a great blue and white outfit and the shoes should be worn at every opportunity they're so lovely. G is looking a little bit freaky for my tastes - I prefer him with a bit more swank! Oh shit a big branch just flew off my tree in the wind.....Brace yourself honey here comes the wild weather! Keep warm xx

two squirrels said...

You and blue always look like you are made for each other....love the dress....thank you to the gorgeous Sarah. Yay

Hope you guys are all snug and warm.......We have snow and its so so cold.....
Sending love V

Sara said...

Love the Royal blue! Even on G's head :) ~ LittleMissPlump (Sara)

Marla Robinson said...

Looking good as usual. Very cool rings.

menopauselsupermodel said...

I am freaked out by G......

Blue was MADE to be worn by you--it is definitely your color!! I love the outfit-especially against the orange wall!!

Emalina said...

Well done Sarah for giving you that dress, it fits you like a dream and I love the colours.
G's costume is genius!

Annie said...

Blue does really suit you, Helga, and that outfit looks a treat. Great shoes and bag.

I'm also loving the fab sideboard in the background. But G's costume is well scary!

Looking ravishing in blue, those shoes are too adorable. Yeah G is looking like someone from that blue man group band?! xxx

Mary Lou said...

love and kiss,mary

Miss Simmonds Says said...

ahahahahahahah! G is terrifying and hilarious! I love that blue handbag, beautiful, especially with those shoes. Yum. You look bloody gorgeous xxxx

Forest City Fashionista said...

G's costume is hilarious and disturbing at the same time! You are a vision in blue and white against the orange walls of your house. My living room in my previous apartment was that colour and it was sooo cosy in the winter.
