Have any of you gorgeous things noticed that I wear an inordinate amount of red, white and blue?!
Todays frock is a 70's maxi that I picked up at a theatre sale in Rangoon last year. It had had the zip ripped out, and the ends of the sleeves looked like cuffs or something had been ripped off.
I've literally taken out the middle, as it was a bit small, and reconstructed it!
It's quite fun, and as I received 3 compliments whilst out today, I think it was a successful conversion!
One comment was from a slightly demented man in the Sallies, one compliment was from an older man in the supermarket, and the third compliment was from a young man (young man!! ) on my way back to the car!
How jolly splendid!
Crikey, rein those things in, woman!
Fiddle dee te dee, two pookies!
Hairbow-made it myself
Handbag-60's beauty case (am I more beautiful carrying it?! Of course!)
White beads and sunglasses-opshop
Red necklace-gift from G
The recently married sexpot, Desiree , gave me these fabulous 60's clip on earrings!
My skirt blew up around my neck several times in the strong wind we have today.
I just flapped my arms about and shrieked in what I hope was a becoming fashion.
Thank goodness I had on a lovely girdle over my tights (to hold the damn things up!), darlings, or my modesty would have been all shot to hell!
And at my age (at your age, young man!) modesty is as rare as finding a virgin in Australia!
(or so I'm told!)
At the Sallies, whilst fending off demented admirers left and right, I picked up some light Summer reading, a spectacular maxi (it's a little big! WOW!), some fishnets, a girdle and a funky little retro saucepan.
And then I came home to find my leopard tights had blown into these cacti!
They were clutching onto those tights for dear life!
I did manage to unsnag them successfully, thank goodness.
Ooo, a quick little peek at the new maxi!
It has wings!
