Gritty unrealism, a lady and me

I picked up this fabulous 1980s party dress 
in an op shop last week.

I would have to remove a couple of ribs to do up the zip, so it's held together with safety pins, glue, twigs and spit... but I don't care. The skirt is extra twirly and the bodice makes my rack look awesome. Priorities.

There is new art in my favourite tunnel of love, 
so it was time for a romp with mi Ada Prada.

She's once, twice, three time a lady. 

Oh my god, look at my package!

Passing arseholes were treated to a sweet smile 
and a quick leather gloved salute from my talent.

I'm just once, twice a lady. 
But I'm more than a woman.

Ada wore: 
Dress and white flower - Retail
Floral headband - Made it herself
Turquoise earrings - Vintage fair
Bags - Vintage store
Pretty pink rose - Darling Helga
Brooch - Gift
Coat, necklaces and boots - Op shopped

I wore: 
Shoes, leggings, socks and hair flowers - Retail
Belt, cardigan, long sleeved tshirt, sunnies, necklaces and dress - Op shopped

Your Tunnel of Love is appropriately named. Ada Prada is gorgeous. It looks like she is giving the finger to cooking with the saucepan growing out of her shoulder. Her body bouquet is lovely. And you, well, you are a star. I love your sneakers with this ensemble. I have found that bubblegum works well as a zipper substitute as well.

Hello my dearest and always gorgeous friend.

Actually doing up one's clothing is vastly overrated. And such a fabulously swooshy twirly boob-enhancing glory of a frock just HAS to be worn, whether it fits or not!
Ada gives such a ladylike finger. That sounds terribly wrong, but you know what I mean... I lerrve her frock and that fuck-off headband.
Who wouldn't want to squeeze those peaches? Look at them, err, I mean you. I am mesmerised, in fact I am going back for another look. You are indeed more than a woman.

With a frock like this who bloody well cares if the zip does up! It looks incredible - and it really does do amazing things for your rack! ;) You & Ada both look absolutely sublime. My fav pic of the day has to be Ada's leather glove salute. Golden!

Love the two flowers in the hair.

Are you still dog-sitting? I LOVE The Terminators antics.

Can we get "oh my god look at my package" on a tshirt? That would be awesome. Or, maybe not because the world would NOT get it. Loved your urban meets vintage photoshoot.

Terri said...

Hm, I'm wondering if I could make my rack convincing with a too small frock. The photos are lovely and that gloved finger of Ada's looks deadly.

Krista said...

I love me some juicy street art and this is tasty! Your 1980's number looks sexy mama (worth the squeeze) and the big pearls are extra sweet. Ada is your best accessory :) next to that fringe.
Wuvs you~

The Pugnacious Vegetarian said...

You both look lovely! The photos are fantastic! I have coat envy for your friend's coat. The street art there is much prettier than the art here :)

Destrehan's Daughter said...

Gorgeous dress and I love the background you guys shot in front of.

Forest City Fashionista said...

The two of you are just TOO MUCH FOR WORDS, except for those words. The girls look damn fine packed into that party frock!

Miss Simmonds Says said...

obviously I already knew you could be 40 and a tiny bit and still be FUCKING AMAZING! I'm going to be just like you. In a non stalky way obviously. That dress is so gorgeous, I'm super jealous. Ada looks hot too. Big squeezes all round.
