Rainbows...almost an outfit post

So, Saturday's Ebay post has taught me that most of you are as willing as I am to do very bad things with Lenny Kravitz - but that at least one person was offended by the butt enhancing jeans! I guess you don't see that kind of thing in the Cath K catalogue. Anyway, I shall keep it clean today, and as it's been pouring with rain since I got back, I thought I'd share a rainbow dress I picked up at the Frock Me Vintage Fashion Fair.



Darn it, my head's come off again.

Another rainbow photo to show you is my bargain flowers I grabbed in Tesco on Friday. Sweet williams, reduced from £3.00 to a yellow stickered 39p! I'm not sure what they thought was wrong with them, most of the buds were closed and they were just in need of some water. [Makes up for all the daffodils I've bought from supermarkets which refuse to open]. I have plenty of proper vases, but rather like them in this cleaned up tin can left over from our dinner that night!

Happy Monday all. And if I have an excuse for gratuitous pictures of semi-naked men, I'm always gonna take it! [Probably in the next Ebay post. I saved the best til last -heheh]

  2. Dress looks great - like it was made specially for you yesterday - and I love the shoes. Sweet Williams are such lovely flowers - I'm going to look for some today (but I doubt I'll get your price LOL) xxx

  3. Adore the dress - such a perfect fit. What's it like at the back? Do you have your newly pert butt cheeks exposed? ;0)

    Like your flowers in a can - I put my herbs in cans like that.

    Thanks for linking up x

  12. You look gorgeous in that dress!!! And that's so funny about the flowers as I've got a bunch of Sweet Williams on the go at the moment that were reduced to 75p too - nowt wrong with them!

  13. About the daffs. If you gently pinch the very top off them when they are closed (that outside shell bit, can't think what it's called!) They will all open.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Hmm, I seem to have a similar problem with my head on blog photos :) I like your dress!

    ReplyDelete
  15. Offended? I thought your last post was totally badass (excuse the pun).

    Those flowers are so sweet in their little tin vase. Makes me want flowers on my shelves, instead of my lifetime collection of kinder egg toys and bad-taste holiday ornaments.

  16. Oh Lakota, what a laugh that ebay post of yours. Brilliant! Great dress indeed. Suits your personality I'd say (even without knowing you). xx

    ReplyDelete
  17. Oh how that last post made me chuckle!

    Love that dress and shoes, such cheery colors and the dress fits you like a dream.

    Your tin can vase is wonderful, I don't think your sweet william would look half as lovely in some other vessel.

  18. Adore the dress and I'm after some orange footwear, those sandals are just right. Now, following your headless shot, I'm left reminded of this image from Aphex Twin's 'Windowlicker' video http://goo.gl/luk7q. CHEERS!

  19. I love flowers in a tin can - there's something so simple yet super green and pretty about it!! :-)

    I'm really, really keen on the dress, it's lovely!

  20. Beautiful dress, beautiful flowers (and matt) and you are such a tease I have to see what I missed and stay tuned for the "reveal."

    ReplyDelete
  21. Thanks for the follow! Your dress looks gorgeous & good luck in my giveaway! xx

    ReplyDelete
  22. offended? I thought your post was very intertaing amor.
    gorgeous dress, I love flower prints frocks.
    what a bargain, I adore fresh flowers and the can idea as a vase is great gives it a southern look.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Beautiful beautiful dress! As for the previous post I was also left speechless... ha! I didn't even know you could 'sell' those kinds of things on ebay.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Lovely dress! Your bum enhancing ebay post made me laugh a LOT! :)
    Might have to invest in a pair of those "bum enhancing" jeans hahahahaha!
    Thanks for your advice on my post, i'm definately going to try Google Chrome and see if that helps!

  25. I'm trying to figure out what 2 stone is and I got a general idea....You sure you need to lose that??!! I think you look great, love the dress. Of course your last post has, "I got big butts'," going through my head and most likely will all day. I kind of hate you for that.:D

    ReplyDelete
  26. Your flowers couldn't have looked more lovely in a crystal vase! And now I have to keep my eyes open for a mat like your's...it is the perfect backdrop for fresh flowers :)

    ReplyDelete
  27. oh I wish I looked that good in a dress, would most certainly need my head lopped off to do it justice!
    Supermarkets are unbelievable for the rules they have on reducing or throwing away produce ! Its criminal. Well done you on your bargain flowers. xx

    ReplyDelete
  28. The print on that dress is amazing. And I can't believe I have missed naked men. I'm offended that I haven't seen them...

    ReplyDelete
  29. Hi my dear-wow, the dress is gorgeous-what a bargain and you look great, the flowers are just so pretty too xxx

    ReplyDelete
  30. Lovely dress!!!! And they had sweet Williams in the ladies bathrooms at the concert hall I went to yesterday- so preetty!!!

    Love your Josephjoseph! I love TK Maxx- I bought a JJ choppping board in there 3 minutes after seeing the same one in Debenhams for double the price!

    ReplyDelete
  31. The dress looks fabulous, and I always love discount flowers! I also chucked a lot that someone was offended by butt jeans, they will hate my latest post ;o)

    Maybe i should get onto CK to knock up a pair in floral print?

  33. A gorgeous dress, that print is so lovely. And I'm another lover of sweet williams - especially if they're brought at such a bargain price too!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Hi Lakota, your vintage dress is fab! I have been looking at some 50's style dresses online and I would love to try one on to see if I suit them. wait a bargain with the beautiful Sweet Williams, I always thought they were a great name for flowers! Bxx

    ReplyDelete
  35. What a gorgeous dress, a perfect colour match for the shoes. And I'm glad I'm not the only one who has to buy their own flowers from the reduced section in Tesco. If I waited for SqueakyDaddy to buy them for me, it'd never happen.

  36. Great dress! Need a head shot next time though!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Hello! Beautiful dress altogether - fab colours! Just sent you a wee email! xxxx

  40. Great dress! Print is so similar to one of my favourite vintage dresses. Though glad your not inspired to cut circles where the boobs are and add tassel pasties.

  42. The flowers are so lovely- and what a deal. The dress is gorgeous- and nothing can clear the grey skies away like a riot of color on a dress! Lovely!

  43. Fabulous dress! It looks wonderful on you. I'm pretty shocked that someone got offended by your last eBay post. I laughed and giggled about it all day!

  44. Swoon! I love flowers in tin cans... they look beautiful.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Gorgeous dress and gorgeous flowers. And don't you dare stop with the funny posts; naked men, dodgy ebay sellers and arse-exposing jeans are what I come here for!!

    ReplyDelete
  46. That's a lovely dress and a good price - I always think vintage fairs will be too expensive so I don't go to them these days. The flowers are beautiful and they look great in the can - who needs proper vases?!

    ReplyDelete
  47. The dress is darling and as blogger with complaints about showing what you found on ebay, your head isn't really missing anything but an ache, so let it go off on an adventure where people have a sense of humor and Lenny to keep them happy.

  48. I chose sweet williams when I was in Tesco's at the weekend.
