When I Think About You I Touch Myself

One simply must look after one's delicate, ageing complexion so come spring time, up pops the old $1 orange, frilly brolly to save the day.
Here is the old darling, posing with another old dear - they're jolly good friends who raised the odd eyebrow when they were out and about this morning.

I'm wearing a very old kimono from eBay, thrifted sequinned silk top, 1980s leather cut-offs, Docs and Black Milk leggings, oh and of course my handbag and headband du jour.

This afternoon, the old dear popped out with her trusty brolly again, this time with The Stylist wielding the camera.

 Yay it's "scoffee" time - hurry up and let madre have a slurp!

 I'm wearing a 1960s wool cape I thrifted for $12; Wheels and Doll Baby t-shirt from Ms Minx's shop, who also gifted me the flower ring; fabulously shiny mermaid skirt from that two-wheeling minx, Vintage Vixen; ASOS beaten up metallic shoes and a lovely lace collar I thrifted for about a buck.
As you can see, I'm still channelling Rough Vera and double-bagging it.

I don't want anybody else, when I think about you I touch myself - remember The Divinyls?  Such disgraceful lyrics!
The coffee shop girl took a shine to my t-shirt and told me about her shrines to David Bowie and Kate Bush ... I think I love her and I don't even know her name.  Oh the wonderful people you meet!!!

 Stick-on nails.  Love 'em.
And now for some more lovely random-ness from the wee lassie.

Isn't the fish a screamer?
The lovely Reva of Reva's Rags 2 Roses made a couple of special pics using a shot of some buttons The Stylist snapped off the other day.

Thank you gorgeous Reva!!
Yesterday I had a very exciting adventure when I visited the gorgeous Kitty of Kitty's Vintage Kitsch and her adorable daughter.
I think I spent more time playing ball than dressing up in heavenly gowns, we all had so much fun which you can see here.
We spent hours "playing" dress ups for a very special event happening next month, which is being organised by that raunchy, scrumptious red-headed woman and I'm sure she'll reveal all when the time is right.
She is one magnificent, warm-hearted and very strong woman.  AMAZING!!

Love Desiree xo


  1. Gosh, what do I love most - the tights, the hairpiece, or the nails...? Hard to say.

  2. You are so lucky to have sucha cute stylist, who takes amazing photos.

  3. Yay, two outfits crammed into one post - and both of them a delight. Just caught up with your brilliant Mrs Doyle post too. Still snuffling with laughter over it actually. Father Ted is such classic comedy; one of my favorites.

  4. Those nails are false? I love them!
    So many fabulous things to comment on, your sexy legs in those leggings, the crochet collar, the rocking tee, the hairpiece, you are just an inspiration.
    I bet the Stylist loves Reva's creation. It's ace. xxxxxxxxxxxx

  5. Love, love, love. You are unique, LOl.
    I adore your Stylist daughter on the buttons.

  6. These are a favorite pair of leggings, you rock them like no one else, but the silver mermaid skirt from Vix, is super sexy! Your nails look great I too am a fan of the Sally Hansen stick on's. Gorgeous as always.

  7. Ooh, that skirt from Vix is fabulous, love your shorts and crazy leggings too.
    The Stylist does take a good photo, doesn't she, the fish is hilarious! She's definitely got the eye.
    PS. Haven't heard that song for years, always like a reminder of some mad blast from the past! "When I'm down I want you above me" indeed!

  8. Love the mermaid skirt. Your Stylist is a fantastic photographer! -T

  9. I think I need a shiny mermaid skirt. Like now.

    You look fab as always, honey! I love the "brolly".

    You should use that banner as your profile blog header.

  14. I am in LOVE with your skully tights!

  15. I giggled when I scrolled down to the fish. Watching you move into Spring is so strange when Fall is creeping in here. All your killer leggings really make me think I need to get at least one stellar mind blowing pair to rock this Fall.

  16. O,SQUEE,SQUEE and SQUEE again!!!
    I'm touching myself.........

  24. Hi Desiree, just been checking out your blog! lovely to see my clothes have gone to a fabulous home.
    I really prefer my stuff go to awesomely mad dressed people!!
    anyway, you look great, i cant even think where to begin to comment!

    speaking of the Divinyls.. have you seen the film Monkey Grip ? Its a bit difficult to watch, but it has its good moments :)

    oh.. i love the fish head too.

    Ms Mink

  25. OHWHOAHOH I don want, ANYbody else, when I think aboutchoo I touch myself....I thought they were one hit wondrousness, I had no idea they were around long enough for T-shirts! ;-)

    I know I've said it before, but your stylist is the coolest girl, I just love her.

    (I had the same design stick on nail thingies - only in pink - done, but even getting them done at a salon they didn't come out that well. How do you get the edges flush? Supposedly you were supposed to be able to file the excess but mine were pretty ragged.)

  26. What wonderful outfits! A woman in a sequin tee and leather shorts is a woman after my own heart. And I'm drooling over that silver skirt!


Just do it ...
