Just snap your fingers and I'm walking...


I felt pretty fecking frocktacular in this heavenly little square dance number I scored off Etsy for a song....and perhaps I should dance?!
I wore it for drinkies one Thursday after work with my luscious friend Daisy....you've met her before, here...



G and I stopped in Hagley Park so I could prance about in my tights with sandals glory....
Poop, my "seams" are twisted!!!!
They were more than twisted after a several red wines and a good gossip with gorgeous Daisy, I can tell you.





Do I look like a woman who gives a shit about dressing age appropriate?!
I should think not!
But doesn't that pink blush give me a youthful glow?!
(later it was the wine...)

pastcaring said...

Well, I'm LOVING the tights, darling! You do indeed make me feel like dancing, you heavenly woman - pass me a glass of red, and we can have twisted seams and rosy cheeks together, along with some outrageous swearing, naughty behaviour, and raucous cackling!
Gorgeous pink and yellow combination, such a cute daisy print, and lace and leather, oh my!
Age appropriate? How dull! Pinkylicious and divine, that's you, my love! xxxxxx

I love your makeup. And all the colour. And F*** dressing age appropriate. That is BORING. And we both know that is one thing you clearly are NOT.

You have the most gorgeous skin (or the best foundation makeup, whichever)! Seeing you in all that candy pink makes me want to find a full skirted dress and join you for a big twirl in the park.
