Blogtoberfest Day 6: Frocktober


Channelling James Bond

I haven't had a chance to show off the fabulous vintage dresses that I scored at the Talbot Market a couple of weeks ago, so Amy's Frocktober theme for today was the perfect opportunity.

I made a date - me, the self-timer on the camera, and the blank wall in the spare room. I probably should have invited a hairdresser......

....and a stylist with an iron

This colour does nothing for my pale skin.... not a keeper

Aha! But this one is my favourite..... the perfect SuperPops dress!

As Liesl commented:

Faster than a speeding overlocker.
More powerful than a craft hammer.
Able to leap tall stashes in a single bound.

Look! Up in the sky!

It's a bird. It's a plane. It's SuperPops!



Don't try this at home folks.... you may topple over.

You are really settling in very nicely to your new superhero role - I like! The first and last dresses are just GORGEOUS ... good scores crafty lady! Reckon there should be a superpops comic strip released soon ... maybe someone in in a crafty mag could take on the challenge!

Virginia said...

Love that last dress! And the Wonder woman pose...

Selina said...

Wierd word verification..."hymen"

missfee said...

yes the last one is a keeper - and you must keep the hat and arm adornments too!!!!

Emjie said...

You are very, very cool in my book. I love that first dress and it is so cool that you have a WW crown. You should wear the crown more often.

julia said...

I love all of the dresses. You look great in all of them. I laughed at the last picture. Thanks, I needed a laugh!

Stacey said...

Gorgeous, Cam! Both you and the dresses.
If you ever want to sell the green one, can you please let me know?
I've always thought you are a superstar. Now it's been confirmed for me.

Drewzel said...

Cam you crack me up!
The green one is my fave! xx

Amy (badskirt) said...

Thank you for a wonderful post that makes me smile. You are a legend!

My favourite dress is the first one. The circle detail almost looks like argyle (my current love!).

I'm headed to a vintage show in a couple of weeks. I scored a free ticket during Blogtoberfest. This post has encouraged me to be brave as I probably wouldn't have picked these dresses from a rack but they look great on!

ange_moore said...

The last photo is fabulous - and the dress is amazing! Also love the green frock too.

Stacy said...

I'm so glad you have Wonder Woman cuffs! That outfit would have been incomplete otherwise. ;-)

Betty Jo said...

As my prep son would say (but not know the true meaning)..."Sex-y lay-dee"
Greeen dress is super cute!

Tammy James said...

I love that first dress! You may have inspired me to go back to my 60's frock I have just abandoned.

Cass said...

I love the green one

Anna Bartlett said...

I think I'm going to make myself one of those hats and just wear it around the house. Then maybe my kids will listen to me. I'll let you know.

Sarah-Jo said...

Va Va Voom vintage ROCKS!

Miss Muggins said...

I particularly love the green one. I am also particularly envious of your legs, made to wear dresses, you super thing!

Two Peas In a Pod said...

You sure know how to have a great time. I love Superpops....she looks like she is having a blast!! Cheers kYla

Leonie said...

Snazzy dresses. Looks like you had a great time "posing" for the cmaera!

Rach said...

Great dresses - hilarious photos in the cuffs and headgear!

Jules @ MoonCat Farms said...

How could you NOT love the Superpops dress? It is perfect with the headpiece & bullet-reflecting wristbands. Too bad more crafty crimefighters couldn't be this well put together..

Most excellent, superheroine!

Micky - Handmade Expo said...

Great post Cam..

Micky
xxoo

Georgie Love said...

Those dresses are a COMPLETE score. Lucky you have the perfect shape to show them off! yay! :-D

Getting distracted, just putting brooches online now.

m.e (Cathie) said...

oh Cam you made me smile! I definitely needed that today. love your gorgeous finds and congrats on the retail shop with your products.

Tania said...

Could you just STOP on the funny for a minute? Just so I can gather myself?

Cath from chunkychooky said...

Love it- love the last dress- its perfectly Popsy!

Swirlyarts said...

Gorgeous dresses - the green one and the last one really really suit you and the pop of colour on the first one is perfect! And the SuperPops pose is perfect

Leonie Guld said...

can't speak.....pissing myself laughing!!!

Mandi and Maddi said...

Lovin the superpops outfit that's a winner!!!!

Jennie said...

I ADORE the first two dresses. And yes, an iron would be a bonus. Before my sister's wedding I ironed the other bridesmaid's dress but didn't have time to iron my own, and every time I look at the ceremony photos with my transported-in-a-shopping-bag crinkled silk dupion dress, I die a little inside.

Michelle said...

Cam...How cool...
I adore wonder woman...
It was the only "proper doll" i had when I was young...
I even bought one a few years ago and I still have it in the box...
Yeah weird I know...
Love the outfits...
AND the first one is very bond girl...

Flickettysplits said...

I love that chocolate one with the argyle insert!

humel said...

rofl! Love that last one :-) Frocktober - perfect timing for my own post today, thanks for the tip-off! PS What's an iron? Oh I know, it's that little craft gadget that only ever comes out when I need to smooth crumpled ribbons, right?!

Mookah said...

I don't wear dresses all that often myself, but I'm lovin' that green one! And those legs....they were made for dress wearing! (unlike mine).

Gina said...

Ahhhh Cam! It's just not fair! I'm a girl with a non-existent pelvic floor. You're not allowed to do any more SuperPops posts until I've seen the physio!!!!

sophie said...

wow, that first one is gorgoeus looks SO GOOD and I also like the superpops costume, so apt - you just have to look good when you are saving the world!

Lauren said...

Brilliant Superpops dress! I'm particularly partial to the green too :) What awesome finds!!

M* (Melanie) said...

LOL! Oh you crack me up!! Great shots and great dress finds. Lucky you!

JasperBoy said...

The green dress looks fab on you!! How do you find so many great oppy finds that fit you perfectly??

Have you gone a new hair colour? You really are looking glam.
