Forgive me for I have sinned.
It has been over a month since I have last blogged. And in the greater scheme of things I know that sins like murder and voting for Tony Abbot are probably worse and will gain a little more roasting time in hell but still, I feel pretty bad about my lack of blogging.
What is even worse is that for a while I could not even read blogs for our lap top decided to conk out and have a lengthy and expensive holiday in the repair shop. Oh how we suffered with no technology! Oh how we were so ill informed with no Internet!
But, hurrah, for all has been fixed and I have thrown myself back into a lovely long spell visiting blogland today. It is true that I should have been doing house work and home work, but as I am already heading into the fiery pits anyway for not blogging I might as well be truly naughty and irresponsible and have some fun whilst I am at it.
Gosh, what have I been doing over the last month?
Work....yep, still battling away at that.
Op shopping........you better believe it! I have become a regular at my work owned shop and have scored some fab shoes and accessories.
I scored this very boxy, yet very awesome, blue vintage jacket and quickly got to the job of revamping it to fit, and am very happy with the more tailored results.
See, much better! I am pretty sure that the last pic is of me showing off the sharp lapels but it also could be me smelling something bad. Hmmmm.
Enjoying the freshness of lemon and just loving this hand made knitted cardigan that I found in the kids section of the op shop. It just goes to show that you have to look everywhere when you op shop.
These little beauties of brooches were found at my works op shop and I know that they are just little plastic trinkets but I do find them adorable. I now have a little collection of these lovelies to brighten up an outfit.
I have to travel a little to hit some of my fave op shops but it pays off when you find stunning cocktail frocks that fit like they were made for me for only $7.99 each. Check out the rich pewter shades and bustle type ruffles of the frock above. And a pussy bow at the neck!!!!
I must be drawn to these shades at the moment because this shimmery metallic olive green cocktail frock demanded to be mine too. How could I say no?
More goodies. And just to show that I am not obsessed with green 50's styles I found this fabulous pink, orange and purple number from the 70's. I do have some revamping to do (sorry vintage purists) but can't wait to don that bright happy dress.
Attended the "Heart of St Kilda" concert and despite a terrible head cold and sinus infection, enjoyed the great entertainers for a truly wonderful cause of helping the homeless and disadvantaged in the area.
Frocked up and gorged at a luxurious high tea with my pal.
Yummy! And also for a brilliant cause so I didn't feel so bad working my way through all of the goodies on offer.
And last Wednesday my beautiful Little Miss turned four and we have celebrated with lots of gatherings and parties (and so much "Frozen" paraphernalia!) and cake. The little Miss is positive she has grown taller and when I look at these pics I have to agree. She looks so grown up!
I am sure there has been a lot more going on in my life but my poor old brain can't remember or recall much beyond what I had for brekkie this morning.
I do hope you all have been well and I hope that you can forgive me for my sinning.
I shall go read some more of your lovely blogs and redeem my self.
