Falalalala lalalalaaaaaaa



The best thing about the silly season is that favourite people from across the ditch (Australia) come home to visit their families, and we treasure every second we get to spend with them in between family obligations.....
The other night was an evening of much good food and wine with Claire and Mike, over from Brisbane, and we were required to dress up for the occasion.
Just one of my favourite things to do!






Frock-60's, Two Squirrels
Gloves-probably 60's, opshopped
Handbag-60's, opshopped
Fishnets-retail
Shoes-Trade Me
Headpiece-a star hot glued onto a comb by moi
Gold beads-60's, opshopped
Pendant-70's, opshopped
Earrings-from the sweetest Squirrel
Bracelet-from Amy


Pix by Claire and Mike's friends 11 year old daughter

Party ON!

Cheers baby girl! You look ready to start the party of the year in blue and gold, why how ladylike you look!

I love Krista's comment! You are a vision in Blue and Gold - a shiny superstar if there ever was one. I didn't get dressed up at all this holiday (no parties to go to) so I will have to live vicariously through you (so keep having a wonderful time, will you?)
Happy, Happy New Year Doll!
