And laugh in the face that is vulture law


I was lucky enough to spend an evening with my gorgeous friend Daisy du Belle recently...this required looking as fabularse as I possibly could!
Therefore I employed the services of a divoon pale pink and gold 60's brocade frock I procured from Two Squirrels when we visited the lovelies in October. 
Sometimes you just have to pull out the big guns.
(In more ways than one)





We intended to go out and check out a bar close to daisy's house, but ended up merrily sozzled and yapping until I was on the verge of passing out.
I'd forgotten to warn darling Daisy that I am a bit of a Nana and don't have great stamina.
Thankfully, she had had a tiring week at work and was quite unconcerned at my needing to go to bed at only 11pm-ish..........a gal needs her beauty sleep!

I also wore:
Stole- a costume hire shop sale just the other week
Beige fishnets, barely seen-retail
Shoes-Trade Me
Handbag-60's, opshopped about 10 or so years ago
Pale pink gloves-60's, I think they were part of a lot I scored off Trade Me thanks to my personal shopper Sue, but I really am a bit vague on that
Headpiece-made by a lovely friend
Faux pearl earrings-opshopped
Necklace-60's, opshopped

You and Daisy must have stopped traffic! Bloody hell, that's one gorgeous outfit, the frock fits you like a dream and the hat is divine.
It's so frustrating not to last the night, I'm in serious training at the moment, I'm dozing off by 10pm lately and want to be dancing till dawn on the beach soon!
Love you! xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Big guns for sure snap crackle hot dam sweetie this frock is Heaven sent or Squireel sent:). You look like a gorgeous movie star! I kinda like those nights where you gave so much fun you don't quite leave the house.

Is it me or did I miss the scary thing you did that you teased us with?? I'm dying to know!
Loveyouhoneyxxxxoooo

Forest City Fashionista said...

Those are some mighty fine lookin' big guns you've got there darlin'! Holy Guacamole (to quote your sister wife), you are an absolute dream in that fancy-ass dress! The stole is what caught my eye first - the closure at the front is really cool and it adds an icing of glam on your cake of gorgeous-ness.

Like Krista, I am wondering about the thing you mentioned in a previous post - did you do it? did we miss it?

Catherine McCourt said...

Wow, you look gorgeous! That dress looks like it was made for you, and the stole is beautiful too.

Catherine, xo
