Far beyond the shrinking skies where money talks and leaves us hypnotised



O, hello there, haven't seen you in a while.....
Fancy going out for a spot of lunch and a few drinkies?!
All right then, lets go.
Where you been hiding out, dear maxi frock?! Must be a year or two since we last caught up?!


Well, things can't have changed much in the year or two since I last wore this maxi; she still fits!
Every now and then I pull out a frock that I'd quite forgotten about.
So many frocks, so little time, y'know.....
Please don't accuse me of neglect!
I'd like to think I'll take her out more, but then, I am just as likely to lose her amongst the melee that is my boudoir for another year or so....
It's not that I have too many frocks.
Just not enough space.

I love your hair out loose, so beautiful!!! Finally some nice weather, and it is impossible to have too many frocks!

Oooh you are an exquisite creature, out wandering the trees in your spectacular maxi! As always, I ADORE your red, white and blue combo. The shoes are divine and I agree with Sue, your beautiful hair is magnificent. Love you more than parmesan cheese! SS xxxxx

Not too many frocks, just not enough space. I shall remember that line and use it often. I love the mystery of the first photo, and then, bam, you turn around, a vision of beauty in that incredible dress.

The straw hat and straw bag combined are "just enough but not too much" finishing notes to this informal outfit. Your ensembles are never obvious, Helga. At first, one sees the Titian hair and intense blues -- but then the bits of red can be seen peeping out on hat band, bag decoration and shoes peeping from the hemline.

I love seeing you in a maxi with your hair down! That dress is fabulous, love the casually tied red belt and that cute straw bag and naturally all the heavy metal!
That's Jon excuse, not enough storage, as I smugly close my wardrobe while he struggle with his bastard massive clothes rail.
Love you! xxxxx

So. Much. RAAAAAAAAAAAH-ness.

Red, white and blue. Queen Helga has come back for a visit. Damn fine looking filly she is too! (That's the kind of thing older generation posh folk say in my imagination). Haha! Love your way of looking at things. Maybe you need two rooms of fabulousness? I take it the wind has died down so you can wear your Rapunzel locks long? Magnifique darling! Xxxxxxxx

Curtise said...

Now isn't that funny? I was only thinking to myself recently that I haven't seen you rocking a maxi for ages, and then here you are, looking spectacular in blue! If I wish for a saucy underwear shoot, will that happen too?
I do love that patchwork of houndstooth print, isn't it fab? And the Pre-Raph hair and jaunty boater - just gorgeous!
Ooh, I hear you about the space issues... Even though I am selling loads, I still seem to have So Many Frocks. I swear they reproduce when I'm not looking! xxxx

ArgentGal said...

Ooo! What a grand maxi! Love it with the brilliant red shoes peeking out. Too little space is a problem I can definitely relate to.

Goody said...

Great print on the maxi-makes me think it would be at home at a seaside resort. That is a helluva head of hair you have there-LOVE IT!

LOVE YOU!

sister outlaws said...

Maxi for MAXI STYLE! So swish for swanning about! Love a forgotten frock that still fits!

Forest City Fashionista said...

That lovely dress definitely needs an outing - I would love to join the two of you for lunch and a drinkie ;)

From now on, I will say I don't have too many clothes, just not enough space.

The Grande Dame said...

Your hat is so sweet, it's like a little boater hat! Love it!

Sheila said...

Stunning as always! Although I do miss your gorgeous gams!

Ivy Black said...

I love to see your hair down and the maxi is a beaut. Inly you could rock a boater quite like that, you minx.
True...no such thing as too many frocks. It 's too little space.

Beautiful pre-Raphaelite hair and a gorgeous outfit, you look fab! Those shoes though, I'm drooling!!

Vintage Bird Girl said...

All hail my red, white and blue Queen!!! You look so stunning, the frock, the hair, the accessories. Golly gosh I adore this combo on you. I have frocks like that which only come out to play once in a while, yet I can't bear to part with them. Xx

Carol said...

I adore how your hat and purse add to that outfit. Dang, you're gorgeous!!
