Vampire Outings!

Finally wearing this gorgeous long faux fur coat I bought early on in the year. Very long and very warm and reminds me of the glamorous ladies of the 40s! I am a major fan of the 60s and 70s but I also love the 20s, 30s and 40s.

Naturally I am an everyday Lily Munster, she's also tattooed to my hand and Munsters across my knuckles. I felt so cute with this coat on accompanied by my granny bag and Spider brooch.

It was a freezing night so this coat was great as we we're on our way to meet up with friends for a lovely dinner.

We went to one of our favourite places, Hofbrรคuhaus Melbourne. They have a really nice Vampire Cocktail which we ordered of course! 
Bloody Bavarian ~ The Sweet Bavarian Vampire V--V ๐Ÿ–ค

Dinner was great as per usual, followed by sweets at Brunetti in Flinders Lane Melbourne, if you haven't been you should check it out it's massive! We always used to go to the Lygon street one when we lived in Carlton but now we tend to visit the one in the city more.

The Wizard Of OZ!

On Tuesday night we went to see The Wizard Of OZ  at the Regent Theatre Melbourne. 

It was wonderful especially little Toto who won the hearts of the audience and completely melted mine! 



Wore my new Granpire faux fur coat and sparkly green brooch, I was thinking about painting my eyelids green but I have tons of blue! I LOVE green and used to paint them green a while back, especially emerald green, it's a heart stopper but so is the blue, people always compliment the blue and think it's amazing, I do too haha ๐Ÿ–ค

I love visiting the Regent Theatre, such beautiful Gothic architecture. a dream really and that green light was gorgeous!


Those velvet red drapes are to die for!

๐Ÿ–ค

Wore a cute little blouse I revamped with my sewing skills, my faux fur coat and short black skirt and Vampire armour. I'ts nice when you overhear people calling you an amazing looking woman ⭐⭐⭐

What I purchased on the night. We had a lovely evening and I enjoy going out and doing Granny stuff! xxx

Granny Stuff!

The things I find at thrift stores in between work! As a travelling Hair Artist I get to travel all over the place, which means I get to explore Op shops. I was quite excited about these recent finds... 

 
I couldn't believe my eyes when I spotted this beautiful faux fur coat, what a dream! 

Then I came across this beautiful sparkly brooch, which came in a Chanel pouch, very Granpire Glam!

The Graveyard Book volume 2 was waiting for me ๐Ÿ–ค

and these two charming frames to add to my collection at Granpire Cottage.

Dark Shadows!

Dark Shadows 1966-1971 ~ My very favourite Gothic soap opera I watch and talk about on a regular basis! My style is heavily inspired by this show, the 1960s and 1970s, Gothic Horror, Victorian Revival, Vampirism and the Occult are very dear to my heart and everyday life. 

Thanks for reading V--V xxx
