I've grown rather fond of Frock on a Friday.
It's like having a pet gimp in the basement I can pay a visit once a week.
Will I, or won't I?
I'm never really sure what I'm in the mood to wear when I wake up.
But it so happens there seems to be a never-ending supply of frocks seeping out of every nook and cranny in the house due to my tendencies toward hoarding and domestic sluttery.
Having said that, I wore this frock on Sunday to visit a tiny wee pop-up vintage market.
I showed great restraint and only bought one frock, but I was struck by the glorious beauty of this 1970s nylon jersey men's shirt which made me instantly think of Helga's G-Man.
He would look amazing in this!
I snatched this splendiferous 1960s swimsuit off the rack and carried her about with me for ages before deciding she was too expensive.
Later in the week I kicked myself after seeing Hot-Legs Helga looking utterly glorious in a vintage blue swimsuit - arrrrgggggghhhhhhhh!!
How can such hotness be contained in one gorgeous specimen of a woman ... I ask you!
This little cutie is Matisse, who had a stall with her mum Glynnis.
Glynnis said she'd be going home with more frocks than she arrived with, as she'd had a wonderful splurge in the other stalls.
She's showing us an amazing 1960s evening maxi frock covered in rosettes and beads she managed to snaffle ... before me.
I wore this 1950s cotton frock I've had for about five years and decided it was time north Brisbane copped onto the double-bagging concept.

The following day I took The Stylist and her BFF out shopping and for lunch, wearing the 1960s blue and silver lurex frock I picked up at the market.
The day involved stuffing ourselves stupid on cake and enjoying general girly silliness with much giggling.
