Two Many Frocks

Happy New Year all you gorgeous frockers!!!!
So I've finally pulled my finger out and got it together to do my first post for 2012.
And I'm being a right ole' blogzilla for this Frock on a Friday.
Two frocks in one day, yeah!!

 The Phoenix says hello and happy new year!

This frock was probably once a maxi but I love it at this length ... just right for what felt like our first day of summer.
At last!
1970s frock - flea market
1970s leather boots - on sale at shoe hospital
1960s orange vinyl bag - Dandelion Vintage on sale
Pink floral headband - made by me
Brolly and bangles - thrifted
Earrings - craft stall

 Yep ... got a bit brush-happy with the eyeliner today ... oh it feels good to just pile it on!

 Number Three Son took on photographer duties today ... dear of him.

 I love me diamantes!!!

 The little man and I.

Then it was off to the post office to pick up an amazing huge-arse parcel from the gorgeous Suzanne of Idee Fixe who so kindly offered to do a spot of personal shopping for me at the latest Melissa VIP sale a few weeks ago.

VW Melissa Lady Dragon Balls ... I'm in love!!!!
The Phoenix in true male style suggested I could use a Christmas bauble if I knock the balls of my shoes ... naughty!
So an outfit change was definitely in order so I could wear those babies to take The Phoenix to his specialist appointment this arvo.
Any excuse;).

 Just thought I'd give you a close up of the embroidery detail and brocade fabric on my slip-as-frock.

 1930s peach silk slip - Dandelion Vintage on sale
Necklaces and brolly - thrifted
Floral headband - moi
Earrings - Etsy

Here's to even more wild glam this 2012 darlinks ... go for it!!
Desiree xoxo

  8. Lovely blue frock. Jealous of your weather!

    Second a floral headband tutorial :D

  9. Yes a floral headband tutorial, I adore the purple one!

    Oh Desiree, I adore those 1970's boots! How awesome are they! And I wouldn't say no to that orange brolly or vanity case either!

    The Lady balls on those VW shoes are quite bizarre! LOL at the Chirstmas bauble comment!

    So cute! xxx

  10. I love the creamy colors of both frocks. Oh for warmth! It is 27 degrees F here in central PA. That translates into Centigrade as damned cold! -T

  11. Doesn't the Phoenix know any better yet? Train that man, Desiree!
    How lovely to see you looking so delightful for your first 2012 post. Love the orange bag and brolly, love both frocks (frock/slips) and your new "bauble" shoes are adorable. Of COURSE you had to change into something else to wear them, it would have disrespected the shoes not to do so!
    Nice to see the little man putting in an appearance.
    Happy New Year to you, my gorgeous friend. xxxxxxxxxxxxx

  12. Happy New Year! I love both outfits, the blue dress is especially divine, but oh my god, the orange vanity bag... I'm in love! It's great. Hope 2012 is great for you xx

  13. Blwydden newydd dda! I see you've launched into a new year as fabulous as ever!

    There's something a bit 'Desperately Seeking Susan' meets 'Rainbow Brite' about the first outfit - I'm coveting your fabulous satsuma bag and brolly! And you have Christmas baubles on your new shoes! (Mind you, I'm over Christmas now and took everything down days ago. Fickle, that's me)


  14. Dress envy dress envy I am in love with this sweet light and super fem daiquiri ice dress ~you look AMAZEBALLS!!!!! As Helga would say I wanna dry hump ya!!!!! Those boots are killer and the orange purse has got my fire light!!!!

    Your little man is too cute and I do adore his Vampire t-shirt and I see he actually has some skills with the camera and a sense of humor! The VW shoes are really perfectly you and the second dress is also beautiful!

    I always love seeing what sort of crazy ass over the top outfit you will come up with. Hooray for summer and bare shoulders and legs.
