The calm before the hunter kill

I had a lady date with darling gorgeous Daisy on Thursday after work.
We're making it our mission to try out the plethora of new bars that have sprung up on Victoria St in the city...this time we met up at Mexicanos, where we had some fecking delicious margaritas.
Some?! Ok, quite a few.
Someone has to do it.
I rolled gently home at about 8pm.........and suffered sadly on Friday!

I wore:
Frock-50's, from Madame Butterfly's a few years ago
Jacket (altered), bow and sunglasses-from my divoon sistercousinwifey Sarah
(47 sleeps until Helgastock 2014!!!)
Shoes-Trade Me
70's vinyltastic work bag-opshopped
Orange beads and earrings-from the sexaciosu Desiree
Red beads-opshopped, key charm addition by moi from Turkey

I had a few missions on Friday, including some opshopping, which my hangover did not interfere too much with!
I was rather pleased to score a 70's pot, a chunky pottery bowl, a Dutch looking 70's handbag, a few sewing bits, a single set of 70's sheets and a Queenie Coronation album!!

Sadly, I didn't properly capture what I was wearing........I was fecking hot and bothered and in desperate need of paracetamol when I got home and simply wanted to rip it all off and have a cold shower!

I did happen to capture what I was wearing last Saturday for a Mexican themed dinner party with our friends Liz and Ely, however!

Frock-made by moi years ago
Mini sombrero-somewhere in Mexico

Liz' outfit entirely opshopped!

Our feast!!!
It was huge. And scrumptious.

That was a bit of a mixed bag for you!
I'm in a sharing mood.....

God I love your green tights! You are a vision of beauty and colour in every outfit!! Yum yum!

Helga! That 50s dress is incredible, if you ever feel the need to do a wardrobe clearout/want to do a swap for anything I've got, please think of me! Your updates make me sooooo miss Chch opshopping, there is nothing that good here. Also I am v jealous of your Helgastock plans. I am doing a similar thing in more like 100-and-something days with some friends from Instagram in Sydney, hopefully we have half as much fun as you always do.

Vix said...

Wah! You look so fecking beautiufl in your Mexican frock and topper and Liz ain't half bad either! That feast does indeed look divine!
I can't believe you've got a hangover in those first photos. That dress has always been a favourite and I adore it with lime green and red.
Love the bag and the pot and you can never go wrong with a heap of sewing notions.
Love you! xxxx

Love the mini sombrero fascinator and that dutchy handbag is very sweet to boot!

Lucy In The Sky said...

You look gorgeous! That is a really really lovely dress, the colours in it are amazing. Love your rings and you look killer in the red spotted dress!

pastcaring said...

LOVE the photo of you and Liz, especially the cheeky boob grab! The Mexican feast looks almost as tasty as the two of you!
I adore the colours of that beautiful 50s frock, you are a citrus-y cocktail of delight. Margarita? Don't mind if I do. Well done for still managing to get yourself out and about despite the hangover, nice op shop treasures (the bag look cool, and you can't beat a 70s cooking pot with a pattern on it!)
A mixed bag? Aren't we all! Love yooooou! xxxxx

Sheila said...

I love all your outfits, but I adore your attitude the most. What a fun couple of days!

freckleface said...

Oh my days, that shot of you two in your Mexican frocks certainly draws the eye and keeps it there doesn't it? :D I LOVE that frock you just threw together yourself ages ago. The pattern, the sleeves, the neckline!! And that little teeny tiny mexican hat is the one of the best headpieces I've ever seen. It's just so sweet and funny. Now then, you've been lucky in the old chazzas haven't you? A Queenie book, a fantastic little handbag and an amazing pot. You must have been a good girl! xxxxxx p.s. forgot to say, I have resurrected my blog with a new domain name -

sister outlaws said...

Hey Helga - check out the language of hair bows!
Who would have thought it!

Brooke F said...

Thank God the "delicate" feeling didn't interfere with op shopping!
Love the green tights with your frock but I am absolutely swooning over your Mexican ensemble. The frock!!! And that sombrero!!! And I am not even going to mention how good the feast looked. Oh, I just did. XXX

Camelia Crinoline said...

That dress from Madame Butterfly's is so pretty. I love that bag you got. I miss op shopping. I hardly go any more. Your cleavage looks magnificent in that polka dot dress.

Catherine said...

i love it all! esp that teeny sombrero! Look absolutely fabulous in all your outfits m'dear!

Ooh opp shopping while hung over! funnnnnn! usually when I do that in ends with questionable purchases - mostly 70s crafty books

Krista Gassib said...

I could just eat up all that Mexican food and the both of you! I think I'm in love with that dress you made or maybe it's your beautiful rack! Oh I hate when I've left the house in something that gets me all hot and bothered and not he good kind.

Teresa said...

Love your outfit lady. Perfectly coordinated for margaritas… which is most important! xo

Ulla-Marie Nilsson said...

You should have mexican theme parties every day.

Kelly Jackson said...

You rock for op-shopping while hungover! Sadly I have drawn the line there, at least with a really bad one. :) You all look deliciously festive, gorgeous and like you're having a the time of your lives. And cheeky as always! Xo

Hollie "Jet" Black-Ramsey said...

Your tiny sombrero is brilliant!

Trees said...
