Inside you'll hear a sigh, a foggy lullaby



I've really been enjoying this 70's does 30's frock, and wearing it quite a lot lately.
The little built in cape makes me feel positively flighty!
We were off to a barbeque this particular day, and naturally, I needed a drinkie to set my mood...



Frock- a market in Wellington last year
Shoes-Trade Me
60's Handbag and flower- from my gloriarse sistercousinwife Sarah!
Necklace-made by the loving hands of  Kristalicious!
Earrings-from darling Tamera!
Sunglasses-70's, an opshop in Australia

Pix by my friend Claire and her 12 year old daughter of delight!

Still on the blue theme, we were lucky enough to have a visit from the Squirrels!
I swear, each time I see these darlings, I love them more and MORE!
Sweet Miss V gave me this divoon square dance frock for my birthday-which is TODAY, incidentally-and I simply had to put it on straightaway!
It's like that with new frockage!
(unless it needs some adjustments)


SQUIDGE!

(Earrings again from Tamera, 50's sunglasses from the lovely Sue, sequin belt opshopped)


Then I had to check Miss V's bag to make sure she hadn't made off with anything from my boudoir....


All clear!


And a little happy dance!

Happy happy happy happy happy happy HAPPY BIRTHDAY MY DARLING!!!!!

YOU LOOK SPLENDID IN THAT GORGEOUS MAXI (whoops, sorry for yelling). The little capelet is divine and the colour is dreamy with your exquisitely fiery tower of hair.

The square dancing frock, however, is quite awful. Send it to me and I shall... er... fix... it... for... you... Well obviously I LIE. You are PERFECTION in that glorious twirly creation and my gawd I am GREEEEN with envy whenever I see you and Miss Squirrel together. GREEEEN I tell you!

Wishing you the happiest of days, my love. You rock the fucking kasbah.

Happy birthday, you gorgeous woman! Hope you had a properly good one.
That is indeed a most divine frock - you know how much I love those 70s-do-the-30s styles too, and the colour and print are so beautiful. And a capelet and tiny belt too, mmmm - and your magnificent self inside it all, very mmmmm!
Oh you have been Squirrelling, lucky you! How delightful to see the beautiful Miss V. Both of you are rocking your gorgeous frocks, and you can't beat a bit of dancing in the street with a darling friend!

Sending A belated birthday hug and best wishes! How lovely to see the Squirrel in her polka dots. That is such an awesome photo of the two of you prancing about by your gate.

You carry off that 70's maxi so well - the pattern looks like a watercolour painting, and the floaty capelet is very elegant. As always, you are a feast for the eyes, Helga dear <3
