Fabulous Forever After Party

Today I had to vote.
I had to because it's the law and if I don't, I have to pay a fine and that means less thrifting fun.
So I did what I had to do but I wasn't going to give any of the propaganda poopy fun police at the polling booth the satisfaction of knowing whose box I was going to tick.

I've decided that if I ever started a political movement, I will call it the Fabulous Forever After Party.

Don't you think this colourful metallic skirt I thrifted last week is just screaming "fabulous"?
It was too big for me so I played around with it, hacked a huge chunk out of it and viola, it's been out on the town nearly every day!

Mascot of the Fabulous Forever After Party quite simply must be Miss Camel Toe.
There's no one as fabulous as that brazen bint to represent my number one I-bear-no-shame-about-partying-in-my-brain policy.

Confetti nail polish means I am partying with my bucket of nail polishes nearly every day.
Don't buy new nail paint, just get some cheap confetti polish and you have an entirely new nail polish "wardrobe".
Party funnage!

Keeping opponents on their toes is guaranteed with a tacky pink headband covered in fabulous brooches.
The Frida badge is from Her Fabulousness Helga and gets lots of attention from an enamel parrot brooch I've had since I was 10 and a couple who clearly enjoy an after party as long as there's a red hat involved.
Have you SEEN what Her Fabulousness is wearing today?

OMG - honorary party membership or what?

Skirt, bag, headband, bangles, earrings, 1970s ring on middle finger, beads and a few brooches - thrifted
T-shirt - from Ms Minx's shop
VW Melissa Lady Dragon Ball shoes - thanks to the uncanny shopping skills of Suzanne.
Ooooooooooooooh and what have we here?

It's a parcel of freaking fabulous frilly frivolities from the gorgeous Curtise!
A 1960s lace and velvet hat, flippin' gorgeous red bloomers, bracelet and lovely coral dangly earrings!!
Oh and a reminder not to sweat the small stuff - yeah I'm not gonna clean my room either.
Unless I have to make room for After Party headquarters - oh yeah!
Vote 1 for the Fabulous Forever After Party!
Have a wonderful weekend lovelies.
Desiree xo

  16. I was so awed that you stopped by my blog, and am totally open to trying a 1940s suit. Now, where do I find one? :)

    Seriously, I've been reading your blog for a while but rarely comment because all I can think of to say, is "You make me happy," or "You look like sunshine." :D

  17. that skirt should be worn every day, it's just amazing! Curtise sent you some amazing goodies, I can see you in those red bloomers at your next Rally. xxxx

  18. Wow, that parcel got to you fast! The postie obviously knew you needed red frilly bloomers IMMEDIATELY! Looking forward to seeing you rocking those bad girls - I have a royal blue pair, just trying to pluck up the courage to wear them and show you!

  19. My friend, the five months or so I was offline, I missed what you can do to fibers - and to otherwise ordinary days! LOVE THIS!!! I love this as much as I love that your country imposes a fine if you don't vote - we should do that across the pond here!

  20. Can't wait to see Curtise' bloomers on you. The tee is perfect with the new skirt!!!

  21. Oh wow I LOVE your skirt and all the rings, beautiful!

  22. Tell me you made something fabulous with the skirt off-cuts ...

    You're far too good for politics D - Fabulous Forever After Party should be a world-wide collective. Or circus.
    Or carnival.

    Sparkly nail polish is the instant answer to chipped nail polish - just slap it on over the damage and all is well with the world.

    And tidying is OK - I've found some FANTASTIC stuff in my room moving great swathes of stuff about - the good stuff sinks to the bottom :)

    You look GLORIOUS as ever and my gawd the bloomers!!! And your shoooooz!!!

  23. Blimey, those bloomers are freaking wonderful! Curtise for PM.
