Look What I Got!



I had hopes of getting loads done today including packing for this weekend's End Of The Road festival but my plans went to pot after the postman delivered a parcel from saucy Antipodean minx Helga so I just had to go and try everything on instead.


This 1970's groovy gingham all-in-one is so me! I've accessorised it with a 1970s elasticated waist belt, a jumble sale vanity case and a snazzy Christian Dior silk scarf (all found for less than 75p) and some ancient TopShop cherry red leather wedges.



This Mary Quant tiger print lycra catsuit and vintage shoulder bag rock my world ! I've worn them  with a 1960s suede jerkin (car boot sale) some Edwardian lace-up boots (British Heart Foundation) and lots of tribal jewellery.





How much do you love this bag? I bet it's not as much as I do!



I'm wearing this fab cotton maxi skirt with an Indian blouse (50p from Islamic Relief) and a Lamani gypsy belt, worn as a necklace. My roots are bugging me so much in this picture I've chopped my head off.





There's also a bottle of New Zealand Kaitaia sauce (because I smother all my food in chili sauce), a pretty vintage bangle and a hipster hippy rainbow belt.


A Stay Strong Christchurch badge. Helga, you know how much I love you.


I'm spending the day with Liz tomorrow so I don't know how I'm going to find time to pack and to make matters worse I stupidly skimped on hair dye and used some cheap Poundland crap instead of my usual Boots' Black so I've got to redo my roots before I do anything, arghhhh!

  30. Love that secret squirrel acorn bag - Helga is a genius! That Mary Q outfit is insane - in the best way - and I love the maxi skirt, gorgeous colours and pattern. Mind you, it takes very little to distract me from packing, one of my very least favourite chores...

  35. Helga has excelled herself, these outfits are FULL of style, fun and character.
    I'm assuming you and Helga met via Blogger, and if so, what a fantastic pairing of positivity, vibrancy and humour.
    I'll never tire of seeing your ensembles, I'm raising a glass (well, mug of tea) to you and Helga as I type - hoorah for non-conformism!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Vix, you are the undisputed queen of the jumpsuit! Soooo sexy, soooo you!
    Love the colour and print of the maxi skirt too.

    If I could I would keep you in a lifetime supply of Boots' Black. After all, we can't have our Vix gadding about with her roots exposed!
