Having palpitations over your frock. LOVE IT! Damn the 80's did some great 50's styles. You look fab and I can understand a little bit of sunshine just wanting to make a lady dance.XXX

Woop there it is! You are on fire like the sunshine my dear! Those heels sleigh me no wait that's you! Turquoise and red is there no other color combination so fantastic! I wuv all your bits from that BIG ASS FLOWER to your shiny tip toes. Sorry to hear cousin Phil is moving further away, that always blows even though you wish them the best.

Drinking beers on Portland summer nights makes us miss you guys.
BIGHUGBABYGIRL!
XOXOXO

You look great, 80s did 50s so well and that fabric is divine...I've been in a petticoat mood myself lately, thanks for the pics!

Oh you have the most pert behind when prancing, Madam Helga! I just want to give it a good old squeeze!
Divine frock, what gorgeous colours, and the shoes are fabularse! Lovely to see you frolicking in the sunshine, along with Cousin Phil, who is moving on up up and away. Exciting! But alas, this will mean the demise of Flange... Has some Yoko Ono type stolen him away and broken up the band?!
Love you, my angel - about to email you about my parcel of mega joy, squeeeeee! xxxxx

Your divine photoshoots always fill my eyes with delight and excitement! Those poses are wild and sexacious! Your frock is fabulous, it reminds me of a Jeremy Scott meets Dolly Parton fantasy I had in my dreams! Great shoes too!
Love xxxxxxxx

The Grande Dame said...

You look spectacular! Prancing about flashing your petticoat like that. I do love the swishy look of that skirt, you can twirl beautifully in that. No handbag/s? And no coat! Spring must be on the way! :)

Oh I just knew that dress was going to look amazing on you......from the display on the dressing room rack to the sun-shine of the porch......just beautiful. Just love the pattern.
Happiness to you sweet.
Love V

Where on earth is Cousin Phil moving to? We need to know on a need to know basis. And is G feeling any better?

Thank goodness you're not going anywhere. You and your red shiny shoes. Which reminds me, did you enjoy that book, the one about Vianne and her daughter living in Paris? I felt it was a bit sad the way she had lost her spirit, but it all ended OK.

Nobody, but nobody can prance like you! You are like sunshine! xxxxxx

Emalina said...

That is one corker of a frock. As for your prancing poses, particularly number 2, so fabularse, shake that booty! Wishing your cousin a bon voyage!

Came over here to get inspired by your colorful outfits and wit and I'm never disappointed! :) Prance...prance I say!

Lynn Dylan said...

Helga! You are too much fun! I love the print on your dress. It's so fun! And I love your shoes. Ahhhhhh! I am green with envy!
