Fecktacious Helga!

Unexpected gifts from goddesses are pure, delicious nectar.
And the heavens shone their full glory on me this week when the Grand Goddess Helga von Trollop sent me a parcel of goodies that set my tail feather on fire!
I may or may not sleep very close to some of the items.

Included in the parcel, the items of which I will dissect into several posts, was this amazing 1960s peach evening frock that I have worn three out of four days this week.
It has a very narrow hem which necessitates a serious wiggle walk.

There seems to have been quite a bit of cat-calling from the audience for a wiggle-walk video.
I'll have to organise my production team and get my wiggle on for you;).

Helga made this amazing brooch from leopard faux fur, lace and a lovely old piece of sparkly jewellery.
It's utterly exquisite and I'm utterly gob-smacked that she made something especially for moi.  I love it!!
She knows I'm a total sucker for animal-print!

The usual suspects accessory-wise, except for another pair of Indian jingly earrings I thrifted last week for $2, my 1930s leather embossed clutch and brand-new grosgrain and embroidered shoes that were marked $270 ... I thrifted them for $20.
When I was trying them on, a bloke sidled up to me and said "you should buy them, they make your legs look fantastic" ...  ooooh errrr ... cheeky bugger!

 Gratuitous boob-grab, coz they're there.

 The vintage blue sequinned cocktail hat turned up this week from Etsy, a bargain at $13.  Happy!

 Close-up of the scrumptious, soft, bubbly fabric and waist trim.  The dress came with a shawl but I wanted to show off Helga's brooch and the boob-tastic dress to you today.

How are you travelling this week sweeties?
There seems to be much excitement around the world at the change of seasons ... spring and autumn are both such spectacular times of the year.
