I Need My Dolls!

As I mentioned Friday, that evening I had been invited by my new pal Sausages for a Valley of the Dolls / Beyond the Valley of the Dolls screening fest, and of course I was determined to dress appropriately. After a Deathly Dry Gin Martini, delicious din dins and some more liquid refreshment, we have decided that Valley of the Dolls is actually pretty boring apart from Sharon Tate's jumpsuit and the legendary Helen Lawson. Y'all know how I feel about the second film. The best part of the whole night is that I didn't have a hangover today - wooop!

(Helga my dearest - how can I possibly choose a favourite line? 
Ok I guess it would have to be "A bathing pool full of mayonnaise!")

So what did I wear? My 60's psychedelic print dress is an old bargain from Ebay US some years ago the label is Candi Jones California.

60's Necklace £2 charity shop

 60's Bag 50p bootfair

My bestest 60's purple suede & leather shoes are also from Ebay (UK), they are just perfect I love them!

Oh yes my hair - it's all natural! It's actually an original 60's real hairpiece that a friend of mine kindly donated to me some years ago, I dyed it to match my natural colour. I love wearing it although I don't get it out that often cos it's a lot of hassle and wigs are hot! (In both senses ; p)

Wilthomer said...

Smashingbird indeed, beautiful!

My fave lines from the film:

"You're a big boy, I'd like to strap you on some time"

"It's my scene and it's freaking me out"

"You're a god damned broad Barzell..."

Saw your photo before I read the captions and thought Ooh Valley of the Dolls - god I loved the book, the film too - think I might try to download it to my Kindle. You look fab x

Perdita said...

Your doll look is spot on! I have a hairpiece which used to match my hair- until I changed my dye brand. Now I've a dilemma: dye the falsie or hang on till I next dye and re-match my natural hair...hmm.
