When I got up yesterday morning I was greeted with a surprise parcel from my style inspiration, the vision of loveliness that is Desiree. Look at those colours. There's nothing that gets my pulse racing more than a splash of psychedelia.
Want to see them on?
A stunning pure silk jumpsuit that fits to perfection and which I was so excited by that I had to go out in last night. I was showered with compliments from my friends and random strangers alike and managed not to spill curry or lager down it either.
Such gloomy kitchen shots but a sudden shower meant a quick indoor photo before we dashed off to get the bus. The kitchen wall behind the sink needs plastering, it's all I'm noticing.

This 1970's tab collared blouse compliments Gilbert perfectly. When we go to CamperJam, a Volkwagen-themed festival in July, I like to wear plenty of orange to match our bus.
My vintage Dunlop wellies got a thorough clean earlier in readiness for next week.
How divine is the print on this monochrome maxi?

Don't faint but I did some housework yesterday (I always clean manically when I'm going away) so there was actually floor space in the bedroom. Can you see my poodle collection on the fireplace?
Yet more surprises from beautiful bloggers this week:
After admiring the domino brooch darling Lakota had made on her blog she very kindly offered to make me one. I choose a 4 and a 5 to mark the age I'll be in December. Isn't it fab?
The fabulous Kitty sent me this stunning jesso frame with a flier promoting the Brisbane Vintage Fashion Fair in which she recently took part and got to meet up with Desiree at the same time. The vintage lace, peacock feathers and flower are just gorgeous.
Hope you enjoy the rest of your weekends. Jon's threatened to lock me in the bedroom until I've packed for Glastonbury so that's my afternoon taken care of.
