Jump(suit) For Joy



Who's a lucky girl, then?  My friendly neighbourhood postman delivered a parcel of cheer from the divine Helga this morning and I was so excited I just had to brave the sub-zero temperatures to show it off in all it's sheer, feather-printed, vintage glory.



The adorable Vanessa spotted it when she and the queen of NZ cool were rummaging at the Rangiora Musical Society Sale. I thought it was too small at first, then I realised I was trying to zip it up over the three tops I was already wearing.


How cool is the label?



Also included in the box of joy was some fabulous jewellery


......and an insane glass poodle bottle to add to my collection. Being totally spoilt I had another parcel last week from another of my gorgeous on-line friends, Janne, containing this teeny china poodle.


Don't they all look lovely together?


Janne also sent me this freaky child, he'll be adorning the Wall of Misery as soon as I've braved the shed of doom for a hammer.

My blogging buddies rock my world.

1980s jumpsuit worn with plastic jelly sandals (£2, car boot sale) and a pile of inherited copper and brass jewellery
Hope your week started well.

I'm off to get creative in the kitchen, wish me luck!

  10. This shows off your tan to perfection, I love it. The styling is streets ahead of the ten-a-penny jump suits from last year now cluttering up the chazzas. The smocked ones with string ties and hareem pants make most women look like they are shapeless, and have 'shat' themself.

    Gorgeous, Helga never lets you down.

  15. Adored the journey through Goa, Vix, and those meals - As a veggie too, I wonder about eating savoury for breakfast, but you had me slavering!

    I love that jumpsuit on me - Looks like you've had more snow than here up north, believe it or not?

    I do wonder how those pretty dawgies travel so well across the globe - You bloggy sharers amaze me with your generosity and spirit - I just have to look at fragile things for them to spontaneously self-combust!

    Enjoy your culinary adventures - Love, Fhina x

    Goodies galore! The poodle bottle is amazing and a wonderful addition to your ever growing family of puffy poodles! They do look ever so cute together! x

  17. Brrr you must still be feeling the heat from Kerala! I went out today in wellies, tights over the knee wellie socks, tweed skirt two jumpers and a tweed coat. Scarf, gloves and hat.

  18. Oh Vix you are a hardy little creature, out in a sheer strappy number in the snow!
    Fiorucci - doesn't that get a namecheck in "He's the greatest dancer"? ("Halston, Gucci, Fiorucci...") Thought it was an Italian brand, but what the hell do I know?!
    Anyway - you look gorgeous, Helga is a wonder, Vanessa is a treasure, and Janne knows your collections well!
    Poodles and freaky kids, jumpsuits and jewels - hurray for pressies from lovely friends! xxxxxxxxx
