Weeee It's Christmas Swap Time!!

I cannot believe I was able to wear this 1970s yellow nylon jumpsuit from soon-to-be-Aunty-again-Sarah Misfit, in the very humid 30 degrees we awoke to today.
I think it's because it's floaty and has gorgeously massive flares so it doesn't cling and create a sweat-fest.
You know, when you stand up after ten minutes of sitting and it looks like you've had a nasty accident down the backs of your legs?
Looks like I'll be able to squeeze several more wears out of this much-loved baby this summer after all:).  Yay!


Say hello to The Stylist's finger.


Hanging onto Penelope Pitstop for dear life because the driveway is at a 45-degree angle.
I've finally got my beloved little V6 coupe back on the road after two years of "it's a long story".
Also wearing:
DIY floral headband
Earrings: craft stall
Jewellery and brolly: thrifted
Stone & feather necklace: Original Seed
Bag: flea market
Sunnies: Melbourne
Shoes: eBay

 And THIS arrived in the mail today, my parcel from the amazing and creative Erica Louise of Recycled Fashion as part of Lakota's Christmas Charity Swap.
So excited!!


It's true!

 Everything including the gift wrap and lovely lace ribbon, was op-shopped (thrifted) except for the beautiful zipper hair clip which she made especially for me!!


 She found me this divine cotton kimono which I just HAD to wear immediately, so cool and I LOVE the colours!


A close-up of the hair clip, which has little leather leaves attached to it.  
Isn't she clever?


 I also got this beautiful paper fan which is going straight into my handbag, plus a pair of beautifully crafted and painted leather bangles.
I'm overjoyed at this point!

The fan is going into THIS fabulous 1970s shoulder bag (or around the neck bag) - so beautiful!

One more thing, Erica also made me this beautiful top from some thrifted tropical bird-print fabric - and made one for herself too - I love it!
It fits beautifully hon!!
Oh dear, I seem to have lost my pants.
Again.
Such a disgrace - weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!!


That's because this wicked swimsuit arrived from Black Milk today.
I'm not taking it off - ever - well, maybe tonight.


I put the jolly thing straight to work immediately - Docs are protection against bindhi's (nasty grass prickles) and are an aid to general housework-y fabulousness.


I wish I could have a cat - the neighbour's lovely wee slut will have to do for cuddles.
Remember how when we were kids we'd run around the house and garden all day in our swimsuits?
That's me today and probably for the next four months.
Let's see what the neighbours think about an overgrown child-mother dancing under the sprinkler with the kids this summer eh?  Hehe!
Happy days to you my lovelies:).
Love Desiree xo

Aagh I don't know where to start! Well done Erica on the swap parcel - glad you liked everything, you rock it all. And that cossie is amazing! Also, thanks for the explanation of bindhis, been wondering what they were when Sarah M mentioned them - I think Indian forehead sparkles, was confused!

That swimsuit has been on my wishlist forever! SO jealous. Also, totally jealous of that divine kimono. Also, don't think I didn't notice you have those Lady Dragons in two colors! You lush. I have them in yellow with black hearts. To die.

Rosalind said...

Where to begin with all this fabulousness...??? THE swimsuit I think. I rarely say in comments 'I want one too' - but this time I really, REALLY want one too! Particularly enjoying the idea of doing housework in swimming costume and DMs - oh for hot weather.
Other two outfits looking stunning - glorious yellow jumpsuit.

the Citizen Rosebud said...
