The sun was rich, rich with a song of sin




I frequently admire the way Curtise rocks a classic denim jacket, and have been on the lookout for just such a jacket for a while...but then I remembered this jacket, which is actually a shirt dress that my friend and bandmate Nix gave me (a $2 score!) a couple of years back, and I've been thrashing it!
I suspect you'll see it quite a bit.
It has a great shape, and I love the 3/4 length sleeves.
Nice one, Nix!




It made a nice light jacket for a little housewarming afternoon party we went to at our mate Ambers the other week...


That's Amber's lovely Mama on the right!



I was rather enamoured with Amber's wall arrangement...spot the amazing vag painting, by one of her friends!!!


Someone's daughter looked a treat in my heels!


Speaking of treats.......I got to take this one home with me!

Looking fabulous as always and I'm loving that jacket.

Vix said...

Both you and G look gloriously Summery! Check out that delicious hint of red bra you've got going on and G's amazing shirt.
Curtise is the poster girl for a denim jacket, isn't she? Your denim trench is a particular favourite of mine, it always adds a bit of an edge to a pretty frock.
Amber's wall is incredible, I can't take my eyes off that vag picture.
Ha! I think Ray from over the road is my surrogate dad as he knew my parents...what does he know? When he's not wheeling the bin out in his underpants he wears a white linen suit and goes to Neil Diamond gigs!
Love ya! xxxxxx

That is the denim jacket for you--it looks smashing with your fab frock!!

Janey G said...

i actually cant think of anything to say as that vag painting has pushed everything else out of my mind!!! lol thats some picture! x

Val Sparkle said...

Candy pink, sky blue, happy ponies cantering through the clouds - and then that olive handbag adds a whole other dimension of style. Amazing color play, Helga!

Theres something satisfying about bright colours and sunshine on a frosty damp morning in the UK

Sandra said...

nice iron railing backdrop to present your awesome-ness! the coat dress is like a fab duster coat (I think/hope that's right!)
Love the sunshine pics and how gorgeous you all look, we have grey skies so I'm going to stay awhile and bask in your sunshine ps

Do you ever look anything other than AHHHHH-FREAKIN-MAAAAZUN?

pastcaring said...

Vag on the wall! There's a great band name, if you ever start another one, apart from the two you're already in!
Ah, thanks for the mention, darling - I frequently admire every bloody thing about you, my love! A bit of denim does seem to work well with ladylike frocks, I think, it just roughens them up a bit (and I like a bit of rough!)
Gorgeous turquoise and pink, adorable sunnies and fuck-off flower, loving that photo of you and the Mighty G, and Amber is such a cool chick. Much deliciousness, as always! xxxxx

love your denim summer coat, and you're right, 3/4 sleeves are so cute!!
and love your gorgeousness wearing all that pink and aqua and so pretty vanity case!
besos & vag painting!!

You and G just hanging out with your mates on a lawn in early summer. That's really rather nice. And that hint of red lacy bra IS rather a treat, as is the fact of you taking your lovely G-star home with you.

I agree, a bit of denim does even things out when it might otherwise get a bit girly. I had a great denim jacket a la Curtise but gave it away a few years ago. Need to find another so I can be back in the gang!

I bet there are a lot of daughters out there who would love to try out your shoes and anything else from your wardrobe they can get their hands on. I'd start with those fabulous sunnies. Hope those rubbish neighbours of yours start behaving themselves soon :( xxxxxx

Ivy Black said...

Nifty shirt, G...very nice. I do like a bit of denim and you rock that coat rather wonderfully. I agree Curtise is the queen of the denim jacket and I do like the way you rock yours. I am in love with Amber's wall and the vag painting is amazing. Every wall should have one!
Big kiss.

Forest City Fashionista said...

Excellent re-purposing of the shirt dress! Amber does have some funky style going on - I'm diggin the lime hair. She also has some fierce home decor ideas. You eye definitely cannot stay away from the Vag painting. A conversation *piece* for sure ;)

Trees said...

I love the dress becomes a jacket look :D Oh I love the photos of your friends housewarming - isn't it SO NICE that summers on the way and its time to hang out in back gardens and have BBQ! I love the colour of Amber's hair and her wall is rather exceptional!

JG Ruddock said...

I'm reading backwards and when I spotted that coat in the post before I thought, 'Phoar, that's *rad*!'... then I saw your full explanation here. As you suggest, a winner all round!

Obviously, as always, lovin' the styling and all the fun!
