When he sighs his song and pirouettes thro' a dance of dynamite



He's prancing here...


He's prancing there...



Stop stealing my thunder, you little shit!!!
My turn to prance...get out of the way!!!
(But I didn't push him into the shubbery!)



70's frock-opshopped
Cape-opshopped (both cape and frock came from the same opshop, years apart, I just realised)
Headpiece-the sweetest Squirrel
Shoes-Trade Me
Handbag-60's Rex, gift from G
Sunglasses-Catch a Thief
Cuffs-one was from Vix and one was opshopped
Necklaces-a market and opshopped

G's pants and waistcoat are part of a three piece 70's suit from RetroFunk in Oamaru, now sadly closed down, his shirt was from an opshop somewhere, we think, and his chucks were retail.
His tie was a gift from....Sarah...?
He's got a lot of splendid ties!





Only slightly strangulating!!!
But glamour is pain, darlings!


We went out for Italian for G's oldest friends birthday.
I'm happy about it being cape weather, this beauty has been waiting patiently for a few months for an airing.

You look so regal in your dress and cape combo....dare I say royal blue. I am soooo looking forward to cooler weather hitting us soon too. I want to wear sweaters, jackets, tights and furs. Hurry up Autumn. Nice to see G had his moment in the sun too. xx Shauna

beate grigutsch said...

mondoagogo said...

HOTT! That cape is totes amazeballs.

Julie Delves said...

Fabulous. You have the best blog.

Beth Waltz said...

G has the Prince Consort two-step down pat, which is as it should be when you're regal in a royal blue!

(Wish you two were my neighbors. I'd enjoy looking over to see "what are they up to now...?!")

PinkCheetahVintage said...

Prancing men are the best and you look fab in all those jewels and the cape--gorgeous couple <3

Angels have Red Hair said...

Glamour personified. I'm getting a My Fair Lady vibe here ... and G can be your Professor Higgins :0)
xx

Vix said...

G can come and prance around my bush any time he fancies - as long as he brings you with him!
That cape is beyond fabulous especially worn over that amazing tomato red lovely.
Glamour is pain, thats what I tell myself every time I leave the house in mental, bastard massive heels!
Love you! xxx

You look like a vamped up Mary Poppins!

That cape is amazing.

Your man made me laugh. My guy also is quite good at stealing my spotlight.

pastcaring said...

Ha, just sniggering at G being invited to prance round Vix's bush... You gotta watch that one!
I always love to see a smooshy Helga'n'G photo, even if the little shit is trying to take over your blog and upstage you. Keep him in check, darling. Although he does look rather dashingly handsome. Is his hair longer than YOURS? I demand a measure-off.
I adore that beautiful bright frock, not to mention the sneaky peek of cleavage, but the cape, in all its strangulating glory, is the star of the show. Such drama! You're fabularse! xxxxx

Krista Gassib said...

Walk like an Egyptian had to say it, hi G stealer of thunder and bringer of style! Give G a hug and slap that ass for me will ya!

This is a grand occasion for this cape, you are style royalty in it! Autograph please, you must be famous because you are stellar!
Love youxxxxxxxooo

Sandra said...

G is awesome! and prances very well, I am admiring his outfit and amazing hair, I have hair envy! and cape envy too, it's cape perfection!!!! gorgeous with your orange frock, you are just fabulous!! I think this is one of my favourite Helga outfits (and there are many! I definitely want to be in your frock fan club) x x x

Sheila said...

You are both so fabulous! G is very handsome as he prances about, and you are regal and austere (I envision him dancing around you). Lovely!

colormebrazen said...

I'm in awe of that cape. And holy damn am I seeing my future! My partner and I will, in all likelihood, grow up to become you and G. http://colormebrazen.files.wordpress.com/2013/06/owlhurst-june-xxxvi.jpg?w=788

Forest City Fashionista said...

Look at G, ever so cool in his suit and flowing locks! You two are such a lovely couple.

Yes, rock the cape while you can. I always find that there is very little cape-wearing weather here; it's either too cold or too warm. The orange sunnies match your lippy perfectly.

ayoung70 said...

That is a spectacular cape and I also have G-hair-envy. Look fabulous!

Citizen Rosebud said...

You are the Queen and King of Funky Cool. He can prance around the shrubbery any ol' time! And you- tear the heart and blow the mind. Not in a dirty way. But yeah, in a dirty way.

freckleface said...

Mirror Mirror on the wall, who's the fairest of them all? It's Queen Helga in her Snow White cape! You look lush darling! But G is the leading man, always. I love his moves. I'd just love to see you two on the dance floor together. As for his hair, it's amazing!!!! Fancy Vix offering her bush for him to dance around! Saucy wench, she is! :D xxxxxxxxx

Renia said...

Pięknie wyglądacie:)))Ty w tej pelerynie jak królowa:))Pozdrawiam serdecznie:))

Sacramento Amate said...

You are both beyond fabulous, my dear Helga.
XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

Teresa said...

Excellent prancing!

one denim bird said...

Well hello Darlings! Nice little "Hongi" there of you two! Yes, G did steal the spotlight there - but your orange maxi and blue cape stole the limelight right outta G's tailored suit! So desperately hoping I can pull a sickie and catch a train down to Melbs for a catch up when you are here. Love your gorgeous bits, Dee xoxox

liz said...

SO GOOD. You look like a superhero. I'm way into this look!

Tilda said...

G's hair is so long! I'm jealous!
You always look so good in red and blue, that cape is spectacular :)

Jessica Cangiano said...

You are a vision of incredibly cool, and endlessly chic, style, dear Helga! May I just say how very much I adore your paring of royal blue and orange? Because I really do! I sported the same palette for my husband's birthday (with some white swirled into the mix as well) in 2012, as orange is his favourite colour and I always like to sport it in his honour on his birthday.

Big hugs & many thanks for your lovely comment on my New Look inspired outfit post today,

♥ Jessica

Gasp! That cape! It's fantastic! I've been on the look-out for the perfect cape for the last year or so, and I'm yet to stumble across one that's just right. I love the electric blue number that you're rocking in these pictures.

Hollie "Jet" Black-Ramsey said...
