Mama Gets a Day Off

Well I wasn't alone, but a few hours out on a Saturday with The Stylist is such a treat.
No kidding, she's awesome company.

 The gal practised her photography skills again today.
I just gave her the camera and told her to go for it.

 But I had to snap one off of the wee cutie in one of her headbands during our "scoffee" break.

 Can you see how freaking awesome this 1960s lurex top is from the deliciously fab Helga?
She sent it to me in a parcel a wee while ago, with the promise that it would likely fall apart within a couple of wears.
Uh-uh, this would be about the sixth time I've worn it and I freaking LOVE it!!!
Thank you gorgeous!!
I'm wearing the top with Black Milk velvet bell bottoms, which happen to be so soft I had to check I was wearing pants.
Bring on No Pants Saturday!!

 Yes, this is my bitch-face "don't keep me from my cake any longer" look.

It doesn't look much, but this fruit slice is my bit of heaven with coffee.

Mama has a gob-full, attempting not to shove the whole thing in at once in public.

 Somehow I resemble the fish at the pet shop.

 The Stylist took pics of buttons and fabrics galore - she loves the colours and textures.

Our bags and one disgraceful, old bag.

I hope you're celebrating just for the hell of it this weekend!
Baci, Desiree

  23. Your bitch face makes me giggle and they go oh no better not mess with her. I love these velvet bells on you and that gold, no one does metallic like you but Helga is close :) The stylist is adorable as usual and she is well on her way to being a professional behind the lens.

  24. The stylist is hugely stylish. What adorable headbands, and I love your lurex top, fabulousness! I am also totally appropriating the portmanteau word 'scoffee' over here btw.

  25. Looks like you and The Stylist had a fun time. She has quite the artistic eye doesn't she. Desiree I loved the post you did on Mrs. Doyle! It was fabulous and you've got a gorgeous house and kids!

  28. Hi hi.what a lovely blog.Just love those pants and top.And those shoes.Love the color.You have gorgeous blue eyes.What a beauty.

  29. You know you are amazing right? Just sayin'. 'Cause you totally are. And your "fish face" is frigging adorable. I wish we weren't at opposite ends of the globe, you are such a groovy lady, I wish I could meet you in person.

    Those velvet pants are also ah-mazing. They make me kinda want to wear pants again. And they look GREAT on you. Especially paired with that gold top and the shoes and ahhh... stellar outfit.

  30. I am actually enjoying this megadose of you and The Stylist - perhaps I'll save up your posts for a weekly humungous delicious serve every week!

    You both look amazing - I love the stripes and spots (always!) and your lurex blouse is EXQUISITE! And I'm off to find me a pair of those velvet flares!
