The Good, The Bad & The Most Ugly

Forgive me if this post seems a little all over the place but there are a few things I need to share and none that I feel can wait.

May you rest in peace Jill


I'll begin with the very sad news about the Jill Meagher case. Missing since the early hours of last Saturday, her body has been found and a man charged with her rape and murder. Everyone is talking about this case and it seems to have hit home with people in a big way. Men and women. While there have been some opinion pieces and media coverage circulating that leans toward victim blaming, the sheer fact of it is that a family is grieving for a wife and daughter who's life was suddenly and unexpectedly cut short in the most horrific, brutal and ugly way.

My heart goes out to her family and friends and although I did not know her, I find myself feeling heartbroken for them and her. Such a promising young woman, now a life wasted. I think this case has resonated with so many of us because of the sheer shock and absurdity of it. We realise how easily it could have been us or one of our friends. Because we have done the very same thing. Walked alone at night to our car parked further down the road, the bus stop around the corner or home from our local just a few blocks down the road. We think we are safe, we think we will be fine and we don't want to 'bother' anyone by making them walk us to where we need to be. I myself am very guilty of this. I have this inherent philosophy that 'everything will be fine'. Unfortunately this is not the case and the sad tale of Jill Meagher is the wake up call that a lot of us needed. It is devastating that such a realisation should come at such a cost but I urge every single one of you, male or female, to stay safe and think carefully about where you are going. Stay alert and look out for others too.

I move on from Jill now, not to diminish her story but because the weight and sadness and ugliness of it is so unbearable that I can't leave this page focused on such negativity. There are also some other things I need to explain. In fact, I must apologise if you visited the blog yesterday as no doubt you would have been redirected to a spam site within about a minute. It seems the BadgePlz widget I had in my sidebar was hacked and was causing redirects to spam sites. Egads! It seems pretty much any blog with the code was affected and I only realised it was happening to my blog also after I urgently texted Suger telling her there was a problem with her blog. Hah. Anyway, I've sadly had to say goodbye to my Instagram feed down the side. I miss it already. But no spam sites thank you very much! It's lucky I didn't post yesterday or those naughty little spam sites would have been getting all my clicks! Bad spam sites! BAD!

*Insert Hallelujah music here*


Again moving on to this beauty, you might have noticed my IG shots last night of this stunning vintage swimsuit which arrived yesterday. Goodness me am I excited to have her in my hot little hands! She's all my vintage swimsuit dreams come true! I had been searching and searching for the perfect vintage suit and I had something in mind but couldn't seem to find it anywhere and then suddenly burlesque bombshell Lila Luxx put her up for sale and what do you know SHES EVEN MY SIZE! Of course I had to have her!

She's a spectacular and very rare Jantzen swimsuit from the 50s. The styling is incredible with shirring on the bodice, sides and back. Jantzen called the shirring on the bust "Crinklpuff" and the back shirring "Crinklelastic". The fabric is a quick dry nylon. It also features boning in the bust; adjustable button straps that can be tied as a halter as well; lined bust and tummy panel; two rows of horizontal shirring down the front to give an elongated look to the torso and modest leg openings. I have never seen another suit like this one. It is styled a bit like the "Postage Stamp" swimsuit that Jantzen made in the 50s, but this one differs because it has shirring on the bust as well and the "Postage Stamp" did not.

I'm hoping she'll win me the Viva Las Vegas swimsuit competition next year!
