I just adore how Peepers prostrates herself before me....or behind me, as the case may be here!
She's such a little love!
We were just giggling over how tiny she was when we got her, and now she's a great big long legged soft thing!
She's bigger than Humpers, and used to boss him about...but he's butched up in the last year and now he tells her whats what.
Don't be fooled by the sunshine....yesterday was marred by the bitterest wind that threatened to create havoc with my hair!
Luckily I was going for a bit of a messy/dirty/needs a bloody wash but I'm too lazy look.

I love love love the thick vinyl of this bag!
A vodka and tonic was just the ticket when I got home from a teensy opshop jaunt after work...
I was rather pleased to come home with a deep blue slip, a pale blue headpiece (I'm having a blue theme lately), a splendid tin, a tin bills/letters/misc thingy, and some divoon sheets!
I declare, the Retro Goddess was smiling upon me yesterday!
In other news....I made the cover of a local magazine!
Our awesome friend Jo, the wine writer, was contacted by the editor to be in a feature they wanted to do on more unusual fashionistas....she asked if Jo knew of any other people...and Jo suggested me!
I in turn suggested our friend James Wilkinson (an amazing musician and uber styley gent) and it became fairly incestuous!
Anyway, here's some snapshots of it, I tried scanning, but it just didn't work out.
Jo and James!
The gentleman on the right is a well known property developer about town, and apparently a very nice man with a shoe collection that rivals mine!
Yes, I did get panicky over what to wear...but with G's assistance, decided on just something I would wear generally, not to overdo or overthink it....
The whole thing was a blast-the interviewer was lovely, the photographer and his assistant/wife were just wonderful...they all made me feel so comfortable and quite Goddess like!
It's all very surreal and a little unnerving, as I am used to flying under the radar, so if I get recognised I may well freak out!
