My head is stuck on something precious


O, hello there!
Just wanted to show you my sweet brooch...I've had it for years.
Opshopped somewhere, sometime.
It's really rather pretty and ladylike, not unlike myself....?!


G and I figured we deserved to go out for dinner the other night.
Thai, of course.
We mostly go out for Thai.
We love Indian and Japanese too, but Thai is always our first choice!



There was some lovely early evening light to be most the most of also.

  
This darling little glomesh glasses case is where I keep my special 50's sunglasses that lovely Sue gave me. It was from Two Squirrels.




Frock-the sweetest Squirrel
Coat-opshopped, many years ago. Likely had matching pants.
Tights-retail
Shoes-a school fair
Handbag-50's wicker fishy, from Two Squirrels
Beret-not too sure
Earrings-gorgeous Jen


All together now: Thrust!

I am convinced that you always get the window table, because I think you are good for business ... ?

OP SHOP MAMA said...

Lovely colours..
Mmmm bet the thai was good. Jealous. My dinner tonight was so bad that neither john nor I could eat it. The kids were ok with it surprisingly. It was not my finest culinary creation.
Meh.

thorne garnet said...

Another fab outfit. I'm afraid if I carried that fish bag, I'd hook the bottom on something.

Val Sparkle said...

Wow, love that purple coat! And I also like the darker shade of lipstick on you. Fab brooch - I love those painted rose patterns!

Helen Le Caplain said...

Cor blimey - those shades and handbag are divine!!

I love the first photo, the make up and the hair are perfect and you look more gorgeous than ever!! The bag and the frock are awesome too, I'd love to came to the thai restaurant with you and G, I used to love the food but the only restaurant in town is closed now, I suspect that Italians didn't love it as much as I do and the owner looks too much like Woody Allen but more neurotic and he wasn't so friendly, but I'm very sorry for him anyway!
Lots of love xxxxxxxxx

Vix said...

You look so beautiful! I adore that frock and those sunglasses from Sue just seem to look better each time I see them. That bag blows my mind!
I haven't had Thai food for a whole year, I want to gatecrash yours and G's next dinner!
Love you!

freckleface said...

Gorgeous, darling. Such a wonderful role model for any would be lady. Pretty as a picture, always.

I love your green tights, soft purple suede shoes and fishy handbag and the frock and coat are lovely. You are an inspiration! Hope the Thai food lived up to expectations. xxxxx

jasmine t said...

You, Miss Helga, are such an inspiration! After having a baby and feeling like I lost my 'dressing-up- everyday-mojo'- YOU HAVE INSPIRED ME to pull all of my crazy, amazing vintage and retro dresses out of the dark cupboard and into the light!
Thanks you gorgeous lady!

Renia said...

Your bag is gorgeous! I love your green tights! You look so colorful! Beautiful! Kisses x x x x

Melanie said...

We must all thrust with our fish bags! No, something precious is stuck on your head, not the other way around, although your body is precious too...especially in this outfit. You are the epitome of dainty especially with your silver knuckles and your lady pin.

pastcaring said...

Mmmm, Thai...
Mmmm, thrust...
You look as delicious as a good Thai meal, my darling, all floral and purple and green (suffragette colours, always a fine combination.) What a lovely brooch, and your fish bag is always a welcome sight.
Hope the meal was excellent. Beautiful close ups of your exquisite face! Mmmmm again! xxxx

Misfits Vintage said...

Twenty seventh mothafuckeeeers!!!

Darling - you are absolutely EXQUISITE in this fabularse combination. The frock pattern is DIVAAAHN and the purple and green makes me SWOON. As always, the devil's in the detail and you are positively EVIL with perfection! I don't even know what that means!

Love you more than AIR!

And talking of shades - those are some badass sunglasses - WOAH MAMA - I love them.... and that fishy bag. So hungry now thinking of Thai food. The dress is bloody gorgeous - lurve the print oooh and all that purple with acid green tights.... you're an inspiration lady! xxxx

Annie said...

Just been catching up on your adventures Helga.

You're looking as fabulous as ever, love the coat, beret and the sweet brooch.

Did I read right that you will be putting up some of Loafer's music again, or was that Flange? Either way, looking forward to it!

Kelly Roy said...

Fish bag,thai food,great shoes and brooch and wrapped up in colors all at once?Oh! you know how to live the good life!

Sue W @ Living the Good Life said...

I did thrust, honest but nearly suffered a moment of urinary incontinence, perhaps I should watch that DVD Sue gave me for pelvic floor exercises! Couldn't hurt could it! I reckon it's you that makes Christchurch rock so much!! ♥

Hollie "Jet" Black-Ramsey said...

...and now I'm sitting here wondering to myself, why don't I have purple shoes? and then I think... why don't I have HELGA'S purple shoes?? Point being... I LOVE THOSE SHOES!!

Grunge Queen said...

Your shoes rock, Helga, as does the entire outfit - love all the colours together. And that fishie bag? Major crush!

P.S. Don't know how I've NOT followed you earlier or commented on your blog, but that's all in the past. Have trolled through some of your back pages and can't get enough - how did I miss you? xo

Ira Kharchenko said...

I love your brooch and your whole outfit Helga, you are very pretty and ladylike it's true. Your coat has set me off on a nostalgia trip remembering a pink one I had when I was a kid and I loved it so much. Love your fishy bag too, you're right that one can never have too many bags, but I definitely don't have enough space! xx

two squirrels said...

Oh my goodness I just knew that dress would look so much better on you......you just rock it!!!!! Loving Mr Fishy bag too!!!!!!! You really are just amazing Miss Helga you always look truly incredible. Style Queen!!!!!!
