Pack O' Three With a Feather-Light Tip Please!

Ever said that at the top of your voice in the chemist before?
Disgraceful?  Embarrassing?  Well, I have no problem with such social disgraces.
The double-takes and stares this outfit elicited today reminded me of the things we'd LIKE to say, wear, do ... but are too scared to.


This absolutely scrumptious frock was part of a super-dooper surprise parcel from the fecktacious Helga this week.
What an absolute darling!!!!!
The satin bodice has a sequin motif on it and attached are layers of the finest tulle I have ever groped, stroked and rolled around in.
It has two pink satin bows at the front and back to drape the tulle.

I simply had to wear it to drop The Stylist off at her ballet lesson - "You can't come in" - then went for a wee stroll through the oppys.


The gawping was pretty spectacular and I couldn't help thinking of the number of people who may have secretly yearned to wear a tutu-like frock in public.
Oh yes.
I KNOW you're out there!
Don't be shy, make mama proud.


 Notice my new bag?
It's from Two Squirrel's Etsy shop and I pounced on it quick-sharp.
I'm so glad I did because it's a Super Bag with its patchwork, gorgeous blue satin lining and a lucky penny!!
I was so touched by this, a war-time penny from my homeland:)).


In 1940, my Dad was in prison camp aged 18.


Scrummy rings from Helga, plus the earrings I'm wearing.



 Winged shoes are just the thing to take off in while wearing such a divine frock.



 
The white frock from Helga is completely and divinely see-through and look what those lovely Squirrels popped in as a pressie!
This gorgeous pink lacy slip!
A marriage made in heaven - two amazing bloggy mates who are in-real-life buddies - they are both wrapped around my body!!
Can you feel the lurrrrrrrve?

I don’t even know the way I finished up right here, however I assumed this publish was great. I do not realize who you are but definitely you are going to a well-known blogger in case you are not already. Cheers!

She's got some mad voodoo magical frock-shopping skills! You look absolutely beautiful in this gorgeous frock - I have no probs at all wearing my tutus in the real world - and I've had people ask me if I am on my way to my own wedding!

The bag is aboslutely delightful - as are all of your spectacular accessories - and it must be a LOT warmer up there than Canberra!

Happy weekend, gorgeous woman! Sarah xxx

You look light as a bird and I LOVE the shoes! The pink slip under the dress is perfect, too. Just read your Frida post, and the quote was a tear jerker. Then I laughed out loud when I saw your conversation pics. So good.

Love, Jean

That dress looks like it belongs to a wood sprite. It's all flowy and see-through. The winged shoes are totally awesome!

Sara said...

Ooh, it's just lovely. You look beautiful! I love that handbag; I had even added it to my favorites list on Etsy so I could admire it's patchwork, and when I saw that it had sold, I'd hoped it was to someone who would love and cherish it--and that's exactly what happened!!! :D It was meant for you!

I love this outfit. One of my favs, thus far.
