I loved all the colours and the setting for these pix, so have shoved the whole damned lot in.....suffer!
G and I were at The Pumphouse, looking for a piece of skirting board. It's a wonderfully rambly demolition yard with oodles of photographic opportunities!
We were last there early last year, this post has some more pix in and about the yard.
Darling Tania was right on the mark with her comment on this post that my attempts at doing my hair looked a bit 30's...that's exactly my inspiration!
I saw a fabularse pic of a little Romanian hottie in the 30's with a beret and hair pretty much like I've done it...so I thought I'd give it a go, as I needed to make wearing a beret more alluring.
I've totally bumbled my way into it, but am quite pleased with the effect.
Just one earring seemed to set it off nicely!
Frock-early 60's nylontastic, from my darling sistercousinwifey
Gloves-60's, possibly opshopped...
Beret-retail, I think
Bastard massive bag-not sure on date, but just what I've been dreaming about for years; I found it at Camberwell Markets during Helgastock 2014 and pounced! Sure, it's a little big for a handbag, but I fekcing love it and will do what I like!
Sunglasses-vintage Orotons, from my sistercousinwifey
Earring-one of a pair from the sweetest Squirrel
Necklace-made by a splendid artist in the early 90's called Violet Fagan. She ran a vintage shop in Dunedin for many years, but I think it' closed now.
A peek inside my bag!
Love that plaid lining.
