So much nonsense, so little time

Wednesday: Work
 I wore:
Dress, tuxedo jacket and sunnies - Op shopped
Shoes and flower - Retail

Thursday: Work
I wore:
Dress, belt, bangles - Op shopped
Cardigan - Gift from darling Dee
Shoes and flower - Retail
Sunnies - Gift from supermodel Desiree

Today: Shack Attack!
I wore:
Kaftan - Op shopped!
Smug face - Day off work!

I'm sure I have another frock with this label 
but I cannot think what it is...

I Made Helga Art! 

Helga and Whatshername (lady in red) watch over me while I sleep. I thank them for the porn dreams! 


Some recent op shop treasures...

Kitschtastic plastic bowl/basket

Three sets of sheets - two were deadstock!

This one threw me... I found this in an op shop in Canberra last week. My brother has the EXACT same one that was made by our grandmother fifty years ago! I had to have it.

Lovely big old sewing basket

Poor Pig-Nosed-Kitty... last week I dropped her and she smashed into a million bits. However, her head is still intact, so I have stuck her in the pot with the Day of The Dead Dolls (who are becoming delightfully weather worn and cobwebby) and they seem quite happy with the arrangement.
 I arrived home today to a delightful xmas parcel from our dearest chum, Ms Ivy Black... I'm not usually very good at obeying rules but I have so far managed NOT to open these parcels, despite them TAUNTING me for the last eight hours or so! What does this mean!?

I love it when you pair black & white with yellow - the polka dot number is one of my favourite dresses of yours! That caftan is one ginormous explosion of floral fabulousness. Helga has been Warhol-ified - how awesome!! Can't wait to see what is in your Christmas package.

menopauselsupermodel said...

Love both your work outfits!!!
But you are SMASHING in your caftan!!!
The Helga-Art is wonderful--you have immortalized her bazooms in a rainbow!!
What awesome goodies you got op shopping!!

Destrehan's Daughter said...

Sarah, I always love your outfits, so I'm not surprised that I love this set of three. The shoes that you chose to pair with your vintage though make it so special. I love the mixture of items with older silhouettes and modern bright colors!

MistressCatgirl said...

Lovely as always! That kaftan is just awesome on every level. I have a cute Mexican shopping bag similar to your basket. I use it to keep my knitting projects in it.

I'm screaming:'DIVINE POST!!!!'
Always impeccable working outfits and wonderful day off work style, the Kaftan is Hawaii-astic and the print is great!!I really need to be on a Honolulu's beach right now!
I bet if Warhol had photographed Helga, now he could be even more esteemed than he his!
Great finds, the basket and the cat are lovely and your weekly obsessions are always inspiring!
Love you more than guacamole and Rodrigo Santoro (he has the same surname of my cousin, but not the same abs, sorry..)

Aren't you looking extra hot my lil Sarah! I love the Helga art, you are so creative! I also dig your lady in red guardian of the porn dreams. I may need that :) Those sheets are all so bright and cheery and I can picture them made into something beautiful or just on the bed. Have a lovely weekend at your lil shack!
XXXOOOOOOXX

pastcaring said...

Oh so much nonsense, I love it! Never, NEVER, stop with the nonsense, ya hear me?
So - monochrome spotted smartness and blue/turquoise tranquility, you are fabularse in both, of course.
But then you get your jazz-funk groove on to Shakatak in a kaftan, and suddenly my head has exploded with joy! Look at the print! Has the fabric got teeny pleats in it or is that part of the print? I can't quite tell but either way I love it.
Having Helga and Lady in Red over your bed would certainly give you steamy dreamies.
Gorgeous sewing basket, weird to find your grandmother's spinning wheel tapestry, and sheets of beauty! Poor beheaded Pig-Nosed-Kitty, ending up in the Dead Zone. Still, if they are all happy...
May your palazzo pants be forever stuffed with Jarlsberg and guacamole, my darling.
PS. Don't open Em's present before The Day, she might have booby-trapped it! She's like that. xxxxxxxxxxx

PinkCheetahVintage said...

I adore that AMAZING kaftan. And Andy Warhol eat your heart out, what a fabularse portrait of Helga!

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

Oh I have missed you! Love all the outfits but especially coveting the blue shoes and your artwork although I'm not sure my dreams could get any weirder/ruder. I have a bazillion posts to read and only one pair of eyes and I'm sure I've missed all kinds of excitement. BAH.
