Hot chicks! .. who are All Dressed Up…

Well, as I mentioned in my previous post, I was invited by the lovely Cecylia to hang out in her boutique last Friday, which turned out to be a real stinker, hence the teasing title of this post (sorry to disappoint any guys who think they’re going to see sexy bikini-clad types, but that sort of thing doesn’t happen here! I’m a lay-dee, after all!).

I was greeted at the door by this handsome young gentleman who was hanging out waiting for a cool breeze.

As I’d expected, the boutique was full of lovely things, but as I had something else to go to afterwards (a free dinner, thanks to a win several months ago at a trivia night. It pays to be a nerd!) we just had a chat and a pat!
I’m wearing a top I made from a $3 dress (cut the sleeves off, and used the bottom part to make it into ruffles for around the front.) I’ve got the massive jewellery thing going on as usual, I have written about some of these pieces before but I don’t think I have mentioned the red necklace which I made myself. The big red chunks are apparently mountain coral (although I think they might just be resin) which I bought at a flea market in Japan for $15 and strung on fishing line with some blue Fimo beads that I made when I was about 12! Which is such a long time ago that it makes them vintage 🙂
The big silver cuff is from the bazaar in Istanbul, where I spent so long shopping that my friends and I had to be escorted out because it was after closing time. Hmm, Cecylia had to escort me out of her boutique too, it seems to be a bit of a habit with me… she even had to enlist her bodyguard, Theodore…
I don’t think I can really be blamed for wanting to stay longer though! I mean, I got to find out about where Cecylia finds some of the amazing vintage pieces she wears and swapped designer gossip, all while ogling fabulous fashion. Next time I will actually try stuff on, but in the meantime I’m going to work out a bit more so I can be worthy of this little bodycon number by All Dressed Up! Stay tuned!
And why not cruise on over to Cecylia’s blog for more about her fashion adventures, vintage and designer discoveries… and my star appearance, of course! (Thanks to Cecylia for the pics in this post, too!)
