I’m holding in tight to something long as I go


"A skirt so short the whole world's your gynecologist!"
Patsy Stone


Yeah.
Lovely Gisela sent me this sweet little frock, but I felt it was a wee bit long.
So I cut the hem and made it too bloody short!
(Not that G would agree with that!)
I'm chronic for doing that. One day I might just get it right.
But it's splendidly lightweight and perfect for this weird arse "Summer" we're having!
I think it'll look super with some black boots for Winter too, with some warmies underneath.
(ew, why am I thinking of Winter?! That's ages away!)


This 60's hat, I think, came from the sexacious Desiree.
I also have it in lavender, courtesy of my darling sistercousinwife Sarah.
Tights-retail
Shoes-gift from a co worker
Handbag-60's, a Rex; it was G's Mama's
Sunglasses-60's, San Francisco
Earrings-60's, opshopped
Little jacket, barely seen-60's, gift from a neighbour

Wasn't a very good hair day! Hurrah for hats!



See the dear little jabot!

OK, so your gynaecological quote and your subject header about holding things in is a combination that for a minute made me just WHAT you were holding in and WHERE but I've decided I don't *really* want to know :D

Lovely blue dress -- matches the sky, pretty pretty.

ps. FIRST!

Ha ha. I am going to quote you when I wear my next "too short" dress.

I love this " little" number. And those shoes are fab.

As always you look like you were ready to sign autographs.

I bet G doesn't think it is too short. He would love it!. And if I had legs like yours I would be wearing a frock as gorgeous as that to! Lovely shade and awesome hat. XXX

thorne garnet said...

The Doctor agree with G. Says your skirt is just about right.

Carina Rosenholm said...

Hell yeah ! Amazingness .

The Grande Dame said...

It's got a touch of kinder-whore about it now, doesn't it? Looks hawt!

Sandra said...

I love this outfit, you have hot legs! it's a perfect length to show them pins, I'm with G, not too short at all - and your bum looks flaming gorgeous too x x x

Miss Magpie said...

It looks fabularse as does your arse in it!
I'm thrilled, I just knew it was for you. x

Sue said...

With your fabulous legs you could probably go shorter! Your royal hotness of the south!

Helen Le Caplain said...

Switswu you sexy biatch!

pastcaring said...

G's right! Any shorter, mind, and you'd have two more cheeks to powder and a bit more hair to brush...
Beautiful frockage, and the most divine legs, sweetie! Gisela is a love, she obviously knows about your penchant for a jabot, and that hat is the perfect finishing touch.
Hot hot hot, that's what YOU are, darling! Looooove you! xxxxx

Tamera Wolfe said...

"she's got legs...and knows how to use them!!"

Adorable dress--maybe put a wee lacy ruffle on the bottom??

ayoung70 said...

You look splendid on a gorgeous day!
Slightly dying over Curtise's comment.....two more cheeks to powder indeed. Nice legs, lady

Lucy In The Sky said...

You look fantastic! Gotta love Patsy Stone!

Vintage Bird Girl said...

Gorgeous darling....if you've got legs like that you might as well show them off! Xx

Sheila said...

Fabulous legs! If you're going to go short, then you just have to own it!

Penny-Rose said...

Far out, look at your legs, they are amazing. Show them off more often. The dress is spectacular, I love that sort of 80s squiggle pattern with floral.

Beth Waltz said...

Viewed from the frozen tundra of the Midwest, your micro-mini is an astounding reminder that women with great nerve -- and legs! -- can wear flowers with verve!

I've long sought a lorgnette (for peering at the gaping public): I now vow to send the first one I find to you. A useful accessory that would go well with those demure Mary Janes.

Delia Ryder said...

When you have legs as good as yours its never to short :-) looking gorgeous, dee xx

Sara ~Snövits äpple~ said...

You truly are a beautiful, amazing woman.. Much love from Sara in Sweden

Bobbi said...

I think this is my first comment - been reading you for ages but your coolness leaves me speechless usually. But - if I had legs like yours I'd wear short skirts every day. Wow!

Krista Gassib said...

Dam girl short or not you look good showing off those sexy ass I ride my bike to work all the time legs!!!!! I love the colors on you but the sunshine and blue skies make me wanna peel all off my layers and skip across the lawn, join me?
LOVE YOU!!!
XXOOO

Trudie said...

You say the dress is too short I say you're working it and looking fabulous and I'm most certain it will brighten up a winters day later this year with some cheekiness.

señora Allnut said...

wouau, I've also shortened some dresses 'too much', oh yes, it's so easy to let enthusiasm take control!
Love your cute dress and its fabulous print, so summery!. And I hope you're wearing some 'safety pants', mwahahah
besos

two squirrels said...

Fantastic and short.........man you have great legs sweet.
I just love a wee jabot......always so classy.
Looking forward to seeing you soon darling mIss Helga.
Love v

Jessica Cangiano said...

Killer ensemble! You rock mini dresses so fabulously well! I really like that opted for white opaque tights here, they up the 60s vibe of your fab outfit all the more.

♥ Jessica

Harrie Hattie said...

Forest City Fashionista said...

Whoot Whoot! Sunshine, mini-dress with a jabot, and legs for miles - what else could one possibly ask for?

Permission to frolic, Captain Helga, in that sassy dress. It's punting gorgeous. Jabot who?

liz said...

Patsy...Pats...Puh...if anyone can pull off a short skirt, it's you with those fabbuu gams!

Trees said...

That is a fantastic quote!! I've made the same mistake myself with skirt shortening!

Mrs. D said...

60's for the win. You look gorgeous.
