"Well she looked at me with her dark brown eyes and she whispered hasta la vista. Well I don't know what it means but it sounded good so I kissed her" (Mexican Girl, Smokie, 1978)
This cracks me up. Do you think it's funny too, or am I the only one?
Mexicana vintage vestido numero dos
And this one's definitely for sale! It is far too short for me, I would never wear it out of the house. Ever! In fact, as soon as these pics were taken I popped my tracky-dacks underneath - which wasn't a good look.
So you sweet long-legged things, drop me a note if you'd like to twirl like Felina* in this beautiful frock. All proceeds to my Frocktober fund and I'll shout postage. I'm also thinking it would look gorgeous (and probably fit very nicely too) on a twelve year old girl...perfect for Summer with thongs, or those Salties all the cool kids are wearing.
I do not have a pair. I am not cool.
Geraniums, such fascinating plants!

To date, forty-three lovely, lovely people (including my 'homie' Sarah - thanks Sarah x) have contributed to the Lucy Violet Vintage Frocktober Fund - together we have raised $1340.50 to fund research into ovarian cancer. This is nothing short of spectacular, but you know I'm goin' to hit you for more, don't you?! If you can spare a few dollars to help your sistas, sponsor me HERE. Please.
I know you're probably getting a bit sick of seeing my moosh (as Alison so eloquently calls it!) pop up in your inbox every day, not to mention my daily
begging nagging pesterings for your hard-earned. I'm over myself too. Please hang-in-there and keep supporting me and Frocktober, I have a series of gorgeous guest frocksters coming up soon to break the monotony. Stay tuned.
***the more guest frocksters the merrier, send me a note if you're keen to join in, you'd be very welcome!***
* "Out in the West Texas town of El Paso I fell in love with a Mexican girl. Night time would find me in Rosa's cantina, music would play and Felina would twirl" (El Paso, Marty Robbins, 1959)
after my attempt at twirling like Felina I'm pooped
(I've just noticed, there's that giant hand again!)
and a bit dizzy!
Hasta la vista x
