La Dolce Vita

The sweet life begins one day at a time.
Vintage rose hats and cotton frocks are a good start to keeping life sugary cool in the summer heat.
Here's this morning's sweet-life outfit.

Oh noes there's spiky prickles in there!

This morning's sweet-life ensemble:
1950s cotton wiggle frock, 1950s hat, earrings: all Etsy
Sunnies, white beaded ring and 1950s lizard skin bag: Melbourne
Leopard-print bow tie: Hot Legs Helga
Fence net tights: eBay
VW Melissa mary janes: on sale via the delish Suzanne
Brolly, green velvet bag and bangles: thrifted

Afternoon delight outfit:
Time to cool off with The Stylist behind the lens.

The Stylist and I thought we were safe from prying eyes by sneaking into this alley-way.
It didn't work, the uproar over this get-up followed us wherever we went.
I thought it was a pretty tame outfit actually.

 This afternoon's sweet-life version:
Hat: Etsy
Top: Kmart
Bettlejuice leggings: Black Milk
Docs: retail pressie from me-to-me
Earrings, bangles and brolly: thrifted
1950s Lizard skin bag and vintage glass beads: Melbourne

Consider your fondo dolce (sweet arse) pinched.
Love Desiree xoxoxo

Looking hot AND cool, Desiree, how clever are you?
I love your wiggletastic frock and the hat is spectacular!
I bet you did turn some heads in those leggings, even when lurking in an alleyway! Look at your gorgeous legs and fondo dolce - who could resist a sneaky peak and a cheeky pinch? Not me?
Hope all is well with you and yours, been thinking of you, love. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

I'm loving those leggings but the dress even more so! Nearly popped in to see you on Sunday morning as I was in your area but figured 5am might not be quite right-LOL! Cheeky kisses from my aspro golo to yours hon.xxxxxxxxxx.

Vintage Sweetheart said...

I love that you have afternoon outfits. That dress is divine especially with that hat and of course the bow tie.

Vintage Jane said...

I love the first outfit. The dress and 'to die for' shoes are just gorgeous! The leggings are mad ... no wonder you had a following!!! M x

Franca said...

Penny Dreadful said...

I luuurve that dress. And you have just the arms for it too, I could never pull it off. Consider your arse pinched back. xx

Collette Osuna said...

Tallulah May Vintage Socialite. said...

Amazing as always, love the 1950's cotton wiggle dress you are one curvy lady and the afternoon green hat was just so sweet.

Celynne said...

Wah, that dress! It looks fantastic on you. You look gorgeous. I love that you decided to wear the blue fishnets and VW's. The fact your crotchal area is so defined in the 2nd outfit qualifies as riske to me, just because I'm odd about crotches though hah, I feel nude if anybody can see my shape so clearly as wearing tights like that does. Power to those who can rock it confidently though!

CRY said...

Love the orange Umbrella.
I have an orangish vintage umbrella that has a hook on it so you can carry is like a purse in case you need to use it. It wouldnt poke people walking by, it stays vertical.
all umbrellas should be that way

Krista said...

Your sass, your ass I love it all! That dress looks amazing on you and I am in love with that hat! You probably stop traffic in your town and thank god for that! You rock leggings like no other my dear!

Vix said...

That dress rocks my world and you wear leggings like no one else on the planet. I'm giving your arse a virtual squeeze. xxxxxxxxxxxx

señora Allnut said...

Vintage Coconut said...

Des the dress is totally gorgeous & your legs in those blue fishnets *OWWWW OWWWW*. Also those shoes are gorgeous and go so well with your choice of leg wear.
When I first saw the prickle picture before reading the caption I thought you were falling... *ahahaha* then when I read prickle I fully understood the look on your face.
