Move over baby, give me the keys


'Tis the season to take pictures indoors, tra la la la, la la la la....
Indeed, it has been pissing down rain here!
The cats have barely moved from the couch, I've barely moved from my bed....
It's just too cosy for anything too energetic!



I did motivate myself to finally make curtains for the french doors...something I have been blithering about doing for months!
Wonders never cease!
I managed to finish them, and frock myself up for a brief excursion out for supplies.
Wore me out though, and it was back to bed!




Frock-70's, opshopped
Coat-60's, swapped it with a friend many, many moons ago
Tights-my soon to be partner in crime, Sarah
Boots-a market
Scarf-opshopped
Bow-a garage sale
Fabularse Rex handbag-60's, a gift from G
Earrings-the sexacious Desiree



The gig went surprisingly well last night, considering we have only had one practice since we played on the West Coast!
I started feeling a lot clearer in the afternoon, thankfully, so I didn't sound like Barbara Streisand!
Will sort through some pix tonight, and see of there's anything worth posting for you tomorrow!

Here's a little video Nix made up for one of our songs to keep you amused...
(That's Si and I on main vocals, Nix on backup)

Great rain gear. x Pissing down here too. I think we can say the drought has officially broken. Surely!

I always enjoy the first of the cosy weather! Those curtains are rather dramatic! They make a fantastic backdrop. The coat is bloody gorgeous! Love the colour. Your band sounds great, brilliant video. It's great to see you in action. I want to give you a BIG squeeze! Xxxxx

Camelia Crinoline said...

I love all the red especially the fab coat. The space around your sewing machine is so tidy. Mine always has stray bits of thread and other pieces of crap around it.

Louise McDonagh said...

Oh no. I hope you won't be doomed with a ling winter like the one we've had. I love that bag so much, it's cool. You stay cosy and take care. Xx

Melanie said...

I'm your biggest music fan. I love your video!
But more bed rest for you young lady after being out singing to god knows what time and probably with a little galivanting as well. Tsk. tsk.
Your curtains are gorgeous and a great backdrop for your loveliness.

freckleface said...

Look at you dearest Helga! Even when you are indisposed you manage to be matchy matchy with your curtains. And what curtains, I bet they were heavy to haul around when you were pinning and stitching them. You need to rest yourself young lady!

I do like to see you in your role as singing legend. It looks such a good laugh and don't sound too bad neither!! xxxx

Helen Le Caplain said...

You look fab - I want those tights and bag....and boots (!)

I can't access headphones at the mo as I'm teaching, but will be sure to later :)

What a lovely coat!
Glad your feeling better .

Amber of Butane Anvil said...

I am in awe of your multi-talented fabulosity - sewing and singing and styling and booty-shaking are just a few of your goddess-qualities I so admire. Amazing how much you're getting done - making us other sickies look bad, lol. If I can do a fraction of that at my best, I'm stoked.

OMG I LOVE the song and the video!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm also your biggest fan and not only because I want to be just like Melanie. Feel better soon, dolly! xoxoxo

Lucy In The Sky said...

What a shame you've been feeling unwell, wishing you a speedy recovery lovely Helga. Love those curtains you made! As for that amazing outfit, you are fabularse in red and the hair bow and stripey tights are the icing on the cake!

pastcaring said...

Oh darling, you are SUCH a trooper! Up from your sick bed of doom so the show can go on, you are a STAR!
You look fabulous in red, always happy to see that great coat and those amazing tights.
And I LOVE LOVE LOVE to hear the band and you in particular. Eek, I wanna be your groupie! xxxxx

Vintage Coconut said...

That is one of the funkiest coats ever and they look great with those stripey legs. Your curtains are fabulous!!

said...

I love the big bows you wear, wish I was brave enough to go out with a giant one too! you look fab even with a bad cold, no bags under the eyes or monster red nose! Love your outfits.

Janice Tutone said...

Oh I love this outfit....I think the tights really pull it all together! The video was extraordinary! Gave me a really good feeling. XXX

Val Sparkle said...

Fabulous coat, love the boots, and now I'll be singing that song to myself all week! The video really needs more Helga!

Misfits Vintage said...

Amor, you know I love you but if you bring that jacket to Helgastock, I will fight you for it. AND I WILL WIN!

You are exquisite, as frickin ALWAYS, because the day you are NOT fabularse is the day the earth stops spinning, rolls of its axis, gravity ceases to exist and we all fall into space and explode in a disgusting mess.
That's a LOT of responsibility, my love... fortunately we are in your very capable hands.

Now, speaking of hands... get OVER HERE and get RUDE with me!

Love you more than cheese and prunes.

I want those boots *whining*

Hollie "Jet" Black-Ramsey said...

the video won't load for me :(

Jet Kuhn said...

The curtains look superb, so very you -- as suburb as you look, especially considering how poorly you're feeling! (I look & feel like a zombie at the moment.) I came *so* close to ordering leggings like yours (I sold my original Robot creepers to a gal in NZ! a wedge will be much better for pixie-sized me) they reminded me of Tim Burton, now that I see them on you, I think they are a must for my wardrobe! You and the band sound stupendous, and Nix did an amazing job with that video! I hope you're feeling better now. Healing hugs! XXX

Lynn Dylan said...

Ewwwwwwww, those leggings!! I love those!! I loved seeing your band pictures too, and those amazing plaid tights in your most recent post! Keep on modeling! Sounds like you had a fun trip to Kaikura (hope I spelled that right). yay!
