A Week of Vintage, Glass Beads, Performance Rock, Hairstyles, and Bakelite

Last week saw me away at a 3 day Bead Show selling my wares.  There is quite a lot of purchasing and socialising going on at those things, but I did manage to sneak in a few toilet selfies. 
I also went to a Gary Numan concert and saw performance rock for the first time by The Red Paintings.  It was......interesting.

 The cherry necklace is made form plastic and is over the top in size.  Usually I wear my handmade glass cherries but I felt bigger was better in this case.  The floral cardi is a vintage favourite and I always need more huge pocket dresses.  Shoes are Miss L Fire.

My beads!  Aren't they pretty?
This dress is a sublime 1960's which I wore with lots of my huge handmade glass beads, sparkly nail polish and rhinestone eyelashes.


Performance rock.  There was lots of painting, running around and screaming involved.

And on the last day I wore my vintage $5 patio skirt with a Modcloth cardi, lots of Bakelite and Lucite bangles and my handmade glass fruit necklace and ring.

I experimented with hot sticks.  I used the smallest for this set and quite liked the result.  This short hair thing just may be OK after all.

And Winter means I can hide bad hair days underneath fabulous hats, rug up my fat in fabulous coats and adorn them in fabulous brooches.
My beret is from a handmade market, the Ming brooch is from Etsy and the squirrel is Erstwilder.  My "Kenzo" sunglasses were $2 from Phuket.


  1. Gorgeous and yowzers to that necklace. Holy cherries batman! It looks totally like Bakelite,

    1. Can you imagine the price of it if it was? *shudders*

  2. Your beads are gorgeous! They make me want to start making jewelry again.
    You always look so cool and amazing.

  3. What fun outfits! Your fiesta skirt is especially great! I also love how you aren't afraid of color! It makes for such fun and interesting outfits.
