 Now this brown beauty is a 1950s dress I bought of my lovely friend Crafty Carol

 Like it much? Beads and bag both opped.

 Now for the piece de resistance are you ready for my Liza Minelli performance?

 Got this dress yesterday 4 buckaroonies fits just right and feels so nice on.

Pretty cool isnt it?
and a preety pink dress I found this week $4 again.

Now tell me have any of you who use facebook used your local area Buy Swap and Sell group? Be worth it if you do.I got to meet a lovely lady today using mine she had some things to show me.If your interested in gloves,stockings and shoes let me know.

 Anything to tempt your fancy?

 And she had this gorgoeous vintage cape trimmed with animal print plus gloves and check out the umbrella behind me.Was thinking of Desiree,Sarah and Miss Coconut when I donned this.Thanks so much Rachel for a great time and letting me try this one (even if it doesnt go with my dress lol)

Love the glamarous look Nelly. The green mermaid dress is just stunning - you look fab. I also like the pink one - very different, very pretty. Nice to see you frocking again. xx

Nelly I wish you could bottle some of your energy & send me a dose! Girl, you're sumthin else! Absolutely love all the goodies & the 3rd dress down (with the hat) is my favorite on you. Simply adorable! Oh I can't believe you're building a new house! Exciting for sure but with my own experiences of many "make-overs" it gives me a headache of what's ahead for you. It'll be fun watching you progress & I know you'll be a champ! Glad you're home sweetie! Hope you've been able to get at least a little rest & some "you" time.
