And no rivers and no lakes can put the fire out...


It's all rather monumental, really.
Helgastock 2014 is upon us, daylight saving ends, playgrounds are desecrated...







Frock-from Jen
Cape-50's, from the sweetest Squirrel
Tights (fairly knackered)-from my sistercousinwife
Sandals-from the sexacious Desiree
Satellite dish bow-from Nelly
Handbag-50's wicker, Two Squirrels
Earrings and 50's sunglasses-from the lovely Sue
Necklaces-from London (1989) and Laos (mid 90's)


Creative lighting by nature at our local Thai restaurant.

See y'all in the aftermath of Helgastock 2014!

Helga! I was in London in 1989 and 1990 and I had a really shit time (but wore and bought some amazing things) Wish I had have known you! We probably crossed paths at Camden market or at the Brixton Academy seeing The Wedding Present. I was the girl with green hair, denim shorts, psychedelic tights, patent leather go go boots and Mary Quant earrings.
