C'mon baby, gimme the keys








We went on a little road trip down to Ashburton (known as AshVegas in the local vernacular) for a 50th birthday party on Saturday.
During said party I came down with a head cold and am currently in bed, stuffed up and feeling grumpy and sorry for myself.
O, woe is ME.

We spotted this pimp mobile in the street when we stopped to pick up Si and Nix, so naturally, I had to pose with it.

I wore:
Coat-vintage leopard love from Camberwell Market
Frock-a  modern square dance frock from a consignment shop in New Mexico, which I have shortened considerably!
Blue cardi-Lampang, thailand
Beige cardi, barely seen-60's, opshopped
Scarf-opshopped
Tights-retal
Shoes-Trade Me
Handbag-70's tooled leather lustworthy, a gift from G
Beret and divoon 60's brooch-sex kitten Sarah
Earrings-60's, converted to studs, from darling Tamera
Beads-from clever pants Vix

It hurts to read and type, but I am suffering in the name of blogging because I love you.

Oh sweet you poor thing.........stay in bed with the pookies and keep warm. I hope you feel much better soon.
Sending a big hug and lots of love. Thinking of you....love v

Brooke F said...

Am sending you good wishes and hope the horrid head cold buggers off! XXX

pastcaring said...

BAAAAAG! Not you, darling - I mean that divine tooled number. Your G gives good gifts!
Now, poor you, a head cold is most inconvenient, how very dare it get in the way of your fabulousness?
Still, you were rocking the leopard print at the weekend, always a bonus, and I love the blues/creams/browns theme. And you look quite wonderfully sexaciously intellectual in your specs.
So stop reading, stop typing, lay back, and get bloody better. We need you back on tip-top form very soon! Hope Dr. G is ministering to your every need. Love you, oh snotty one! xxxxx

Penny-Rose said...

You look divine in your outfit beside the limo. I love that coat and the dress is just gorgeous, I wish I could see the pattern more clearly. You should be in bed being nursed back to health with hot lemon and have the cats to keep you warm! and G of course. Take care and banish the bugs quickly.

Vix said...

You poor darling, sending you loads of love and snogs for a speedy recovery and return to form!
Love that leopard coat each time it appears and that glorious frock is giving me a frill (sorry, couldn't help myself!)
Love you! xxxxxxxxxx

freckleface said...

Poor baby. We all love you back! You are too good to us to go to all this trouble whilst indisposed.
You look so wonderfully cuddle-able in that coat, I know G is giving you cuddles, God bless him.
Can't quite get over those shoes, they are seriously beautiful. That pimp mobile is so you. If you were on form, you'd be all over it, downing champagne and being fabulous. Get better soon sweetheart. xxxxxx

p.s where's Sarah Misfit? She aint first this time! I hope she isn't losing her touch.. :)

Poor you! Woe indeed. You are dedicated, blogging through your pain. Hope you feel better soon. I just luurve your coat! :) xx

Val Sparkle said...

You are such a martyr in the name of blogging. I will carve your name in my netbook and anoint myself with wine - inside and out.

You always look divoon! But that little pin really caught my eye - so pretty. And I bet the car is really yours, isn't it?

Melanie said...

You need some ministrations to get well. By gawd, you are suffering in silence for the love of your people?! You need a blogalter for that. You look fabulous next to the pimp mobile. I need some Flange therapy right about now too. I'll have a look/listen.

Trees said...

Get well soon lady! I'm sad you're sick, but glad you still blogging for us! Love that shade of blue & your glasses.

Camelia Crinoline said...

I hope you feel better soon. That coat is so perfect. If I was you I'd never take it off.

Vintage Bird Girl said...

I want me some of those tights! I love the colour, and the layers, and that frock. A square dancing frock is on my wish list. It must be green with ric-rac of course. I hope you feel better soon & stay well for me in 6 weeks time!!! Xx

Sue said...

Get well real soon!! Hook into the hot lemon and honey with disprin of whiskey, you will feel much better with enough of those on board!!

edie pop said...

So sorry to read you are not feeling well!! I've got a serious crush on your leopard coat and these photos make me squeal with delight!!! The beret and the glasses give an intriguing look to the lovely print dress which I adore!!

You must have had a full on party, to get ill WHILE partying! But, I hope you feel better soon. Head colds are rubbish, and you are right to feel sorry for yourself (I always do when I'm ill - and I get grumpy and moany too!), stay in bed with the cat and a cup of tea to keep you warm and snuggly. ~ LittleMissPlump (Sara)

Misfits Vintage said...

Oh my love, I do hope you are feeling much much better.

I recommend mountains of crack and amaretto as the ultimate cold cure.

And why, oh WHY did I not steal that frock when I had the opportunity? You look absolutely MAGNIFICENT in that spectacular ensemble - the sky blue bits are beautiful, as are you.

Love you more than crack and amaretto,

Dr Quim
