So when I received a Parcel of Joy from Desiree this week containing one of her famous (now for sale) headbands, I knew I wanted to wear in it proper Desiree style.
I too found myself pondering...
...what would Desiree do?
I think she would probably start off like this. Desiree loves a bit of underwear-as-outerwear so the frothy petticoat is perfect. And we know she has taken lessons in double-bagging from Rough Vera.
She likes to confuse the onlookers, so a ladylike 1950s blouse (back to front in this case for added craziness) works well. And we all know she has a touch of the exhibitionist about her...
Ooh la la, what do we find beneath the frou-frou?
We find a few more ruffles, that's what! I sent Desiree a red pair of these, but kept some royal blue frilly pants all for myself!
It caused great amusement on Chesterfield market. Can you believe I found two pairs of 1960s frilly knickers, on the different stalls, on the same day? One for Desiree, one for me!
Sooner or later, the dress/skirt/trousers have to come off if you're inspired by Desiree. It's the law.
I do apologise - I don't know how that happened!
A gal needs sparkly tights, high heels, and major accessorizing.
Here is the glorious headband in all its purple magnificence.And a bit of cleavage. Sorry about the uninspiring light switch in the background - how very Readers' Wives...
A gratuitous boob shot never goes amiss. The silver necklaces are from charity shops, the wonderful skull necklace is handmade by darling Zumba-hot-bod Krista. Boob Crack - all my own work.
The kids can play along too. Especially when the outfit matchy-matches!
Oh sweetness. She popped on a bit of lippy for the photo shoot. And applied it as I would after a few pints too many....
Thank you, Desiree. Thank you for your inspirational, no-holds-barred fabulousness. You are a delicious woman and a lovely friend. I salute you in appropriate fashion...
Who doesn't want to grab their own arse when they are bedecked in flowers and frilly vintage nylon?
