On Friday I hooned on out to Rangoon (aka Rangiora) to have a spot of lunch with my friend Gillian, who lives in the vicinity.
Rangoon is a farmers wives/ladies who lunch kind of town, and the cafe we went to was just slightly out of town and packed with just such ladies!
Gillian then very sweetly agreed to take outfit pix for me.
She has a pretty good eye, being a film and documentary director by trade.
Just look at that gloriarse sky!
One of those classic Wintery crisp and sunny days.
Frock-50's, Madame Butterfly's
Belt-70's tooled leather, opshopped
Scarf-opshopped. Just the sort I want to learn to crochet so I can have one in every colour....
Handbag-a Rex, gift from G
Necklace and vintage Oroton sunglasses-from my sistercousinwifey
Earrings-from a lovely friend, Louise
Gloves-60's, opshopped, I think.
After I left Gill, I checked out the local Salvation Army, and came away with just a few goodies; this sweet little plate and hat pin...
A JAJ Pyrex cutie...
..and a sweet piece of pottery.
Their other opshop was closed, and I notice they now have a Red Cross shop, but these aren't very exciting in New Zealand, and rarely have retro or vintage items, so I just couldn't be bothered.
Sometimes that's just the way the cookie crumbles.
In other news, I'm having a go at eradicating a verucca using apple cider vinegar on cotton wool and duct tape....it's very bloody tender!!!
Has anyone else had veruccas (plantar warts)? How did you deal with them?
I really don't want the dry ice into my tender little foot treatment....ugh...but I am enjoying looking at ghastly Google pictures of the things and how hideous they can get......
