Can't touch this

1980s Indian cotton harem pants, tshirt, shoes, hat, bag, sunnies, bangles - Op shopped


Today's op shopping treasures...


The 1950s Fowlerware kettle has the original power cord in perfect condition. I have been wanting one for ages, but there was not a chance I would pay vintage store prices of $80+, so was absolutely thrilled to find this one this morning in Salvos. I shall give it a good clean, have it checked out by an electrician friend and start making cups of tea with it asap!

Groovy 1960s Brazilian dish 
and table cloth look gorgeous together!


A couple of fab vintage crochet patterns 
and a 1975 Woman's Weekly


I think I'll make this for next winter...


Another crocheted blanket... 


And my favourite, this 1973 Golden Book about an outback Australian vet, his pet chimpanzee, German offsider and teenaged daughter, Tiggie...


Who's a lamb-rescuing uberbabe!




Sarah is bright, couldn't give a flying fuck about sports, wears old clothes and likes to keep herself in Jake Gyllenhaal.

Happy weekend!

Wow for this fancy 80's outfit!!
The harem pants are fantastic and that print is to die for!!!
I'm super jealous of the summer breeze you are breathing there and of your Woobinda book,it's wicked: incest, zoophilia and the silence of the lamb all together! The vet is quite hot himself!
Great finds, I can't wait to see you wearing one of those stunning crocheted dress made by you!!
Love you more than Jake Gyllenhaal!!

Well, hello Tiggie! What a hoot. You made quit a haul. I had to go to treatment because I have way too many crocheted blankets. My house was turning into a recuse mission for them.

This is an amazing outfit!

MistressCatgirl said...

You look so vibrant! I love it. You got some really great finds. I've found some great vintage magazines at thrift stores. There are mostly men's sweaters.

Great finds too, the kettle looks amazing.

Great post. I love all the vibrant colors you are wearing.

Sarah is a harem pants-wearing fool, and that's why I love her!
Wonderful colours, I am a little bit dazzled over here and need my sunglasses, but they've been put into hibernation for the winter...
You did good at the op shops, that 50s kettle is great, and the tablecloth and dish are beautiful. Definitely get hooking that frock for winter, but can you do one of those little ballet skirts too? You know you want to!
Now I have seen that book, and Tiggie, before on a blog, think it might have been Kylie's (Lucy Violet Vintage). Tiggie is quite the Honey Ryder of the outback, phooaarr!
And a big old phooaarr! to you too, my darling floral friend! xxxxx

Love the flowery harems!

Lakota [Faith Hope and Charity Shopping] said...

Good haul lovely, congrats on your kettle! And that Tiggie is a bit of fucking fox isn't she? Are we sure she should be trusted with that lamb?

Actually I've had experience with sheep (yeah, yeah heard all the Welsh jokes) and they weight a bloody ton, she's obviously been eating her weetabix.

You're looking gorgeous in florals. Have a fab weekend xx

Miss Simmonds Says said...

Err, Tiggy looks very well developed for a teenager. I prefer you. Looking very sexy and not a lamb in sight. Those trousers are just amazing. That pink top is delicious. I wish I could touch but I'd also grab that 1975 woman's weekly and see what gems are contained within xxxx

Helga! said...

O,for feck's sake, I think Tiggie needs an enema! There's something very prince Charles and whatsherface Tiggy Leggs Burke or whatever her name was about that INSANE book!!!
You look far tastier that MC Hammer...more like SS Saucypops!
(I can't get that wretched song out of my head!)Those pants are bloody amazing!
The Brazilian dish and the tablecloth are rocking my world...everything else I oohed and ahed at on Skype, and they are no less fabulous! Most EXCELLENT scores, my darling!!!
Can I tough you?!
Woo!
Love you more than bright, beautiful sunny days!

Stacey said...

Those pants!! I think my head might have exploded looking at them - in the best possible way of course! You are such a vision in all your bright colours. :)

Sue said...

I like Sarah much better than Tiggy. I like people that don't give a flying fuck, they are my kinda people. Soon you shall be able to stamp everyone with a good old fuck off!!!!! Love all the colours on you, you fabulous gorgeous woman you ♥

Green Tea and Cupcakes said...

Cant believe that you got that kettle as Salvo's they are so expensive in Brizzy vintage stores. What a brilliant find!!!!

Forest City Fashionista said...

Tiggi looks like Ursula Andress coming out of the water in the Bond film Dr. No!! I think you would make an excellent Bond Girl, by the way.

Good lord, look at Tiggie. Curtise must have LOVED that!!
