On Day Release

Yes, the phrase "day release patient with a four-hour curfew" does spring to mind here.
Oh the sheer, simple joy of wearing a huge-arse pink rose headband and gumboots (wellies to you Brits).

But all good things come to an end ... before the next good thing turns up.
It's getting dark and I should be back in my cell before Nurse Ratchett sets the wardies and dogs on me.
Should I let them drag me back, or escape and heed the lure of more sartorial freedom?

Tomorrow I'll be 44.
Getting older + mad outfits = LIBERAZIONE!!!!!

I hear the dogs baying.
They're on the scent!

Quiet or they'll hear us!

No, I'm leggin' it.  
Stuff this four-hour curfew.
Onwards to the next mad-woman outfit.  Hooray to freedom!!
No to beige capri pants and boat shoes!
Hooray for Johnny Nice Painter!
Floral headband - made by me
Swimsuit - Black Milk
Skirt - made by me
Bag - thrifted 
Pink necklace and bracelet - from the beautiful Krista
VW Melissa Squiggle boots - thanks to Suzanne's visit to the Melissa sample sale


  1. I am smiling from ear to ear - thank you!

  2. Promise me you'll smother me with a pillow when they try to tame me!

    You are as EXQUISITE as always! The pink rose headpiece is frickin brilliant (as soon as I get a job I will be commissioning some more - I need more!). That swimsuit is DIVIIINE and that new bag is a firm favourite.


    I hope you have a brilliant year... perhaps a little trip south is in order at some stage?

  3. May you have the happiest of birthdays...during your escape from the sanitarium. The Wellies are perfect with the body suit!

    Your post reminded me of a day my DH and his son had been assigned to a carpentry project at a local mental institution. His son needed to use a bathroom and once he was inside the building, the staff had NOT wanted to let him back out.

  4. Run for it,darl!!! I'll hide you if necessary,and I'll pepper them with knives if they try and take you from me!!!
    Totally GLORIOUS is what you are!!!
    Birthday tomorrow??!O,hurrah! I do hope you get spoilt like the fabularsehole tramp that you are!!!
    Gummies ahoy!
    Love and lustipops!

  5. Happy birthday, gorgeous, fabulous, spectacular lady. The one full of such joi de vivre.

    On an outfit note - now that's an idea - swimsuit as boydsuit. LOVE that handbag.
