I Love Dolly Cool and It's all Helga's Fault!

Other than my charity shopping adventures I also had some rather wonderful post on Saturday.

Firstly The very talented Clare from Dolly Cool had put her latest designs on her website and I was about beside myself with excitement when I saw her octopus design. I knew I had to have one so I placed my order and he arrived on Saturday. As you can see I have a very similar t-shirt that I love.

He seems very happy to see the necklace and so was I.

I know I shall get a lot of wear out of him. Thank you Clare for a speedy delivery and also for being so darn clever!

My second parcel is all Helga's fault!
I was suffering serious frock envy for her delicious green lurex number see here.
So I got it into my head to hunt down a green dress of my own.........
It's nowhere near as stunning as Helga's


I liked the look of it so I decided to take a gamble.

The only downside was when it (finally) arrived it nearly knocked me flat with the smell of 'Febreze' which can only mean one thing, it's either 'Handwash only' or 'Dry clean only' and the previous owner couldn't be arsed to clean it so they gave it a damn good dose of Febreze instead to cover the fact!

Thankfully for me the dress was handwash only so I gave it a good soak and now it is ready to wear. :-)


  1. I get that more and more from ebay stuff! Looks like a lovely dress xx

  2. Awww I love the octopus necklace! She's such a clever lady!

  3. Dolly is wonderful! I love that dress - such a great colour and the lace is really pretty! Enjoy wearing it :)

  4. Very cool octopi. And I bet the dress looks fab on, it's such a great colour.

  5. Aw thanks for the nice write up! Your octopus tee is SO cute as well :) Also hate when people send you yukky things through the post. It doesn't take much effort to make sure something is clean does it? A friend of mine bought a vintage handbag off Ebay, and it arrived covered in a thick layer of dust (complete with the selllers fingerprints!)and the inside still had an old tissue, toothpicks and hairgrips in it - ick!

  6. What a gorgeous necklace and perfect with your tee shirt, too! x
