Frocked Up To See Frankie

Here's the pretty frock I wore to see Frankie Valli on Tuesday night


A quick snap taken on our way back to the car after the show. A three km bushwalk! It was a beautiful moonlit night, so I'm not complaining, but I bet the poor people parked near us, who left their headlights on, had more than a few choice words to say when they arrived back to their car after an esky laden trek through the bush! It would've been a long wait for the RAC, that's for sure!

Anyway, have another look at my lovely vintage frock


I bought "the Juliet" as it's so sweetly named, from Kris at Dear Pearl Vintage. To say I was thrilled with my purchase and the service I received would be a massive understatment. I have been a tad unlucky with the frocks I have bought online so I tend to rummage for them myself, this time (as you can tell) I was not disappointed. Not one iota. This is how Juliet arrived


sweet little hand-made hair clips, a gift from Kris


If you like to dress with a vintage edge Dear Pearl Vintage is well worth a look-see. Kris has lots and lots of gorgeous things to tempt you, and they're not too pricey either.

Kris also has a v.nice blog...anyone who lists Margaret Preston, Florence Broadhurst and Nancy Wake (among others) as Aussie women who inspire her is o.k. by me.

Now, a quick word on Mr Valli...we had an awesome night, Frankie's voice filled the air. Especially when he belted out that falsetto he's famous for. Our possie though, was not the best...this was our view of the stage

!
we're there, somewhere, among all the senior citz!

Here's a review, if you're interested...

  8. That is the sweetest package. Beaut frock - love the sheer sleeves. Wow, a 3 km bush walk! I remember Frankie Valli in Grease. Great to hear the Seasons can still hit the highs. P.S. still locating tape measure :)

  11. Your dress is fabulous, and I'm so glad you had a good time at the show. I'm also glad that Frankie Valli got such a good review. I've been to a number of performances by singers of my era that were disastrous.

  21. Oh my lovely........which Ladybird books are you talking about? Let me know. What a very kind thought.
    I don't have any duplicates but I keep an eye out all the time. Are there any you are desperate for? I will of course keep an eye out.
    Let me know which ones you have and I can email you my address. How many do you have in your entire collection? I LOVE them and have been collecting for about five years!!!
    Oh and you look incredibly young.....HOW do you manage it?
