This Leopard Changes Her Spots

I'm sitting here with The Stylist wrapped up in a quilt, sitting on my lap as I type this.
She's nearly as tall as me, but still so cuddly.
We went to see Mirror, Mirror on Sunday, a good excuse to stuff ourselves stupid on sushi afterwards.

I wore a "new" pair of 1970s black satin Super Flares from the gorgeous Jill's Etsy shop, Adeline's Attic Vintage.
They look a bit creased here but that's because I've just exited the cinema after sitting with my ankles around my neck.
Then eating like a queen.
Great way to spend a Sunday.






The Stylist got snap happy - thank you sweetie:)).

1970s leopard-print dressing gown, silver granny beads, 1970s sunnies, earrings - thrifted
Lace headband - handmade by moi
Bowie t-shirt - Ms Minx's shop
Patchwork bag - Two Squirrel's Vintage
Green velvet wedges - Nine West sale
Hologram "eye" pendant - Original Seed
Rings - Hornbag Helga

I've been searching for powered glitter eyeshadow with super staying power.
I found it in Calla Cosmetics' Etsy shop and once I discovered I wasn't limited to my first choice, silver, I went a wee bit mad over this mineral powder magic.
As you can see.
The tube is a light, sheer glue to smear over the desired glitterati areas, then I used a brush to dab on the magical fairy dust.
You can go as light or heavy-handed as you like.
I'm afraid I don't know what light-handed means.


Sequin beret - thrifted
1950s wiggle frock - Etsy
Melissa shoes - shopped by darling Suzanne

I just HAD to wear my new eyeshadow to take The Stylist to ballet tonight
Then while Number Three Son was flinging himself around the dance floor at the school disco, it was a quick change then off for more gorging.
Tonight it was Greek platters of heaven at Char Char in West End.

 1960s crochet bag, 1970s lurex top, green heart ring - thrifted
Lace headband - handmade by me
Earrings and more rings - Baroness von Trollop
Reptilian leggings - Black Milk
Same-same shoes



 The face of culinary happiness.


 Focus people - this is to demonstrate the longevity of the glitter after five hours of wear.



Mrs Smarty-Pants feeling smug, full, happy ... and glittered.
Molti baci,

Marvellously splendidly fabulously perfectly EXQUISITE! The wide legged pants make me quiver with joy - and the leopard jacket (dressing gown, you say?) is SUPERB!!! I do wonder about those glittery eye shadows as I am bit paranoid about getting glitter into my eyeballs - but I am, of course, desperate to be a glitter-lidded queen too. The Stylist gets more gorgeous every day! Sarah xxx

Miss Claire said...

The glitter...I NEED SOME! Please show us some glittery lips, you must! You look fab in all of your outfits, no wonder the stylist couldn't stop photographing you! Beautiful women! Xxx

MistressCatgirl said...

Very groovy outfits! I've always wanted to find glittery eyeshadow that I could wear to Vegas. I'll have to check out that Etsy shop.

Love the wide leg trousers, that wiggle dress is phoooaaarrr! and lurex'n'legging - hot hot hot!

BaronessVonVintage said...

Lady, those satin trousers were MEANT for your amazing, stylish, fabulous self. SO HAPPY to see you rockin' them!!!!!!! Thanks for the link to my little shop!

frumpfactor said...

So many wonderful elements here, I don't know which to gush over first! The leopard print, headband and jewelry are so striking together. And I'm kind of nuts over the shoes and orange toenails in the last photos. (And your stylist is completely adorable, of course, and a great photographer as well!)

Nice food, too. Mmmmmmm......

Sissy said...

Hey, I just bought a 60's men's silk paisley robe and was thinking it would make a fine jacket, thanks for the continued inpiration, love all your outfits, and that Bowie tee is the perfect rock & roll touch, just wow!

delia hornbook said...

Great outfits you look so glamous in the first two outfits i love your first lace head piece that is gorgeous. dee xx

señora Allnut said...

wonderfully glittering outfits, love that '30's star on leopard coat' inspiration so pretty to go to the cinema, and love your glitter shades, and always love your leggings and style to rock them!!
besos

nice, beautiful...

Celynne said...

It always warms my heart to hear about you spending so much time with your daughter, and that you both enjoy it! I love my mom, but we never really bonded, and it tickles me pink to see it here :) I love that glittery eyeshadow! You wear it fantastically. I'm so bad with rubbing my eyes though, it'd be smears of glitter in no time. Wearing that leopard housecoat as outwear is also brilliant!

Frocktasia said...

Wow, you look totally gorgeous in all three get-ups. The grey dress is casual but you've made it come alive and sizzle with that beret and those amazing shoes...not to mention the minxy make-up. Like your new cyber-maid headdresses. I'm sitting here pondering what BLUE PUFF is and why it becomes illegal on the first of May? May I also compliment you on your use of crate as prop in pics, wicked ;)
Lot's of love,
Jennie

Lynne DeVenny said...

Your outfits are always so detailed and visually interesting that I study the details and work my way slowly down your posts, so I was startled to see the 1950s wiggle dress midway - which looks like something *I'd* wear on my rather conservative ol' let's get dressed for work again blog :P I love your eyeshadow. I think I need a wiggle dress, too :)

Terri said...

I love the lurex jacket. And I have new eyes now for dressing gowns...

The Style Crone said...

Your style range is amazing and I really love the glitter eyeshadow. The wiggle dress with sequin beret was perfect for the ballet and of course the leopard print dressing gown for sushi with The Stylist is perfection.

Veshoevius said...

What fabulous outfits! I especially love the leopard jacket and the 70's wide legged trousers! Very glam!

Helga! said...

Miss Simmonds Says said...

Every outfit is bloody fabulous!! I can't choose a fave, though I was suprised by seeing you in a more muted femme fatale grey and how damn cool you look in it

Psycho Sue- Sew Misunderstood said...

I've always wondered, does your little stylist take after you? Does she wear darling little outfits with bold colors and such? You two are so cutesy together =-) That glitter look is to die for!

Bella Q said...

You and the Stylist truly shine. With or without your glitter.

thevintagetraveler said...

Glitter on!

Vintage Coconut said...

I love those high waisted pants on you. And your eye makeup is fantastic.

liz said...

Too much glitter is never enough! I love your little swirly metallic heels too! It's always good over here. :)

Forest City Fashionista said...

Those satin flares are da bomb with that leopard print jacket, and then you pile on the awesomeness with eye glitter and a sparkly top and shiny pants!!! I am in love with those Melissa shoes; I wish I could get a pair to fit me :(
I will order a headband soon (thx for the shipping info); I am waiting for my paycheque!

Reva said...

The Grande Dame said...

ADORE the leopard dressing gown - scrumptious!
With your beaded cap, glitter and silver top & silver shoes, you give Miss Fisher a run for her money in the glam flapper stakes. I'm looking for the scandalously short fringed dress!

VainGlorySinner said...

What an exciting and busy few days you've been having and what fabulous outfits to be busy in! Love your super duper pretty glitty eyeballs! That glitter glue stuff must be bloody good.. *bookmarks etsy shop*

The stylist is so freaking adorable! She reminds me of one of my childhood friends (and still now friend) They would have looked quite similar had they ever met at that age (which would be impossible obviously) but you get the picture!

You seriously have the best show and head accessory collection known to man.. or woman! xxx

Aminta Paiz said...
