It's not necessarily to be so dark...







I adore otters.
I consider them to be water cats....it would be brilliant of they were a bit like killer whales and launched themselves at unsuspecting canoeists.
I'd laugh and laugh and laugh!
Shame we don't have any in our rivers.

We have otters in the rivers here! This vista reminds me so much of the west coast - all the trees and the greenery. Looking gorgeous as always!

Sue said...

That frock fits you perfectly! I love your headscarf. I can imagine you laughing at canoists being sprung but otters, how I wish there were some!

Vix said...

Yes, otters are amphibious cats and owls are feathery ones. No otters? Thats not right. How about I swap you a couple for a kiwi or two? Deal?
I'd forgotten all about that frock, it looks magnificent with the mahoosive sunnies and my favourite coat.
Its looking particularly lush and colourful over there and the scenery ain't too bad either.
Love ya! xxx

Oh yes, otters are wonderful creatures, full of personality. Stinky, but I'll forgive them! I like the idea of them up-ending a canoe and squeaking with amusement.
Look at you, otter-spotting (even if you were unsuccessful) in blue! Love the frock, what an excellent fit, and the shoes, sunnies and cheeky scarf set it off perfectly. You've got a sort of 1940s Rosie the Riveter vibe going on, it must be the scarf. Gorgeous setting, andYOU are more gorgeous still, you delicious woman you! Xxxxxx

Otters are too cute full of mischief :), looks like a beautiful place. Your dress is adorable and loving the colour of your sunglasses Xxx

Oh squeee! I love otters! I don't see any though? That dress looks fabulous and whatever tit sling you have on goes perfectly well with it! Great shape ;)

Sandra said...

Otters are gorgeous! and I do like the thought of them springing about and lurching at canoeists tee-hee! you are utterly gorgeous in the sunshine (and at any time!)and love the nylon-tastic dress, it's a beauty! I do create a lot of static in nylon and have a lot of 'cling', nylon gives me so much! x x x

No otters … but surely you can come up with a malevolent eel or two??
Love your sunnies.

around here I think the gators ate all the otters. Although sometime the creek that runs through campus has beavers. There's a video on you tube (beavers at VSU, I think) if you don't believe me (and a Facebook page)

Otters are so adorable, especially when they are floating on their backs with their little babies on their tummy! Too bad you don't have any there.

That is a lovely "Otter-spotting outfit" though. I'm sure if the otters could see you from over here, they would drop by for a visit ;)

The only thing we have are ducks but we do have loads of beautiful wild birds too and I love catching glimpses of them down by the pond or even in our backyard! You look gorgeous in the tall grass with the bridge behind you and those heels, meow hot dam, sexy girl, SEXY!
LoveyouXXXOOXXX

señora Allnut said...

so pretty dress (as usual), it fits you like a dream!, and still loving your coat and fabulous shoes!. You look delightfully 50's on that green landscape!.
We have some otters living in many clean mountain streams, but they're shy and it's difficult to see them these days. Cute little animals, they were nearly extincted!

Otters are the cutest… when they're not attacking of course! ;)

Mariela said...

Looking fab! Otters are cute creatures. Ive only ever seen them at the zoo.

Tamera Wolfe said...

You look quite fetching standing by the river in that fab frock!! If there were otters I'm sure they would be lined up admiring you!

Tatjana Dmitrović Drljan said...

Wonderful dress with great pattern and the pictures are so amazing!!
Fantastic...
I also love those sunglasses a lot!!
Kisses dear Helga!! :)

Brooke F said...

How funny would that be! Otters should be trained to do that. Now I am having odd platypus fantasies where they attack swimmers and beat them about the head with those cool tails. Gorgeous frock, shoes and sunnies!

Ivy Black said...

Pissing down with rain it is as I write so you have offered a glimpse of sunshine.
I love otters. They rock. Imagine if they were the size of killer whales! I'd still want one.

tanaya said...

Ah you're glorious, you'd make a great otter spotter, that dress is divine x

Misfits Vintage said...

Oh fuck a duck, I'm getting behind again. You are so beautiful in this fabularse frock and I loooove those shoes. I'll be your otter.

Love you more than bandannas!

Two 1950's looks in a row...what is going on? They are both lovely on you, but my favorite is your otter spotting dress. I too wish we could do fabulously english things like spot otters, play poo sticks and eat iced lollies by the river (I know I could have an icy-pole, but I want to eat an iced lolly where it is called an iced lolly!). When you said otter spotting outfit I thought immediately of the main character in mini series "Lost in Austen"- she tries to pass off her modern dress as otter hunting kit.
You look fab in this dainty dress and it gives a very flattering silhouette.

I feel like i'm having a sneaky peek into an everyday moment in the life of someone very glamorous. You dressed for non-otter spotting is more glam than i am for a ball. I feel most grateful i must say. I have never given otters much thought, but i have seen the error of my ways. I do like your 1940s hair treatment and huge sunnies. You look like the patron saint of land girls. Xxxxxx

Trees said...

I always love seeing the wee otters at the zoo - they make me smile. Loving this frock and I've never noticed in all these years that you have a wee tattoo on your ankle!
