I'm still pulling out colors that I have had forever and finally using once again!
This time it's Barielle's Falling Star, Crows Toes Wonder Woman (perhaps my most favourite glitter *ever*) and OPI's DS Glamour. A couple of red rhinestones for a color pop.

Something NOT Vampy this time, but I'm still in my Skittle and pesky rhinestone phase!
Love Stinks by Crows Toes is just glorious and I try so hard every time to capture the exact shade of Neon blue shimmer that it has. This time I came pretty close with it layered over Ulta3 Purple Pumps and an un names Chi Chi lilac pastel. My ring finger is stamped with Konad Light Blue.

I have had absolute rubbish luck Op shopping lately! Where art thou op Shop fairies???
2 lots of Deadstock 60's fabrics, still on the hangers. I gifted these to darling Sarah, who I know will create something fabulous out of them.
A 70's elastic belt for free cause the lady said I was cute and a pair of Deadstock vintage undies for $2.
A 50's suit for The Sexy Man, which fits rather nicely, for $5
2 rather lovely hats from my Aunty D's vintage store for $20 each. You guys saw the one on the left in my outfit post the other day.
And a Pyrex divider cookware in black with snowflakes for $5.
What treasures has everybody else found lately?

I've kept reaching for the Vamps from my polish drawers lately. I am just loving dark nails in this freezing cold weather.
This time I used OPI Every month is Oktoberfest on my pointer and little fingers, Dance Legend Amethyst on the middle and OPI Mrs O 'Leary's BBQ on my ring finger. Stamped with China Glaze 2030 and finished with rhinestones.

My couches reupholstered in this deliciously sublime Jewels fabric by Edit.
A Flash Gordon jumper.
A gorgeously mosaic-ed bathroom in extremely expensive tiles.
Definitely this 1950's rhinestone parure set. But it's priced at over $10000 on eBay.
Vintage Celluloid Plastic Flowers Bead Necklace

This Crème de Menthe colored Bakelite bangle by Brighter Bakelite.

I'm making it a mission to go through and use colors I haven't pulled out for months/years/too long. I'm actually quite proud that I haven't purchased any new polish for several months now. :)
Orly Fowl Play and Lilypad Lacquer's True Blood on the Middle finger. China Glaze 2030 for the stamping. As you can see in the pics, I experienced shrinkage with Seche QD on Fowl Play. More noticeable in Macro than in real life tho. And I'm still in my rhinestone faze.....even tho they catch in my hair.

I got a new hat from my Aunty D's vintage shop. I'm not quite 100% how it is supposed to correctly sit but between The Sexy Man and I, I think we got it close enough. I was a bit worried on the 'Mumsy' factor but Sexy Man assured me I don't look like any Grandma he knows.
Which I guess is good enough.
Miss 5 insisted on being my photobomber for the day. But she is THE cutest photobomber EVER.

While The Sexy Man and Miss 12 were watching Horrible Histories Live in Melbourne a couple of weeks ago, Miss 5 and I explored the surrounding streets of Chinatown. I hadn't visited Chinatown for about 15 years so it was quite exciting!
We found Council funded Graffiti lanes and got super excited!
Miss 5's attempt at photography.
After 3 hours of walking non stop, buying Astro Boy t-shirts in Asian shops and being dragged around testing makeup, the poor wee mite really did deserve a super tall Hot Chocolate and Carrot Cake.

I sold off Orly's Halley's Comet a long time ago and when spying a dupe of it in the Sinful stand at Target recently, I couldn't remember why on earth I did sell it off........BUT when I went to remove Sinful Kissy the memories came rushing back as I was left with stained fingers, cuticles and slightly blue nails. Be warned!
The ring finger is Crows Toes Jungle Balls with China Glaze 2030 stamping on the middle finger and Born Pretty rhinestones.
