And so it comes around again, just the way I like it!
I'm thrilling y'all with the most glorious red frock that the uber fabularsehole Sarah gave me!
I have been looking for the perfect plain red frock for ever, and have been far too lazy to make one, despite having a pile of red fabric tucked away under my sewing table!
And the darling went and presented me with this pearler when we arrived!
I got more compliments today than I've had hot dinners, I swear!
I'm wearing it with:
Tights- the Goddess Vix
Belt-opshopped in Australia!
Hairflower-made by my friend Claire
Orange beads-the sexacious Desiree
60's handbag-gift from Justine
Now, I was rather inspired by Vix's post today about her opshop finds, and considering I haven't been opshopping since I was in Australia last week-like, forever-I figured I had best pop into a local oppie and see what I could find....
And I found a few goodies!
A tan knitting bag, that I will use as a bag...or maybe put my crochet shit in...
A skirt that will be cut up for a project, possibly
2 doilies, to be used for sewing projects...someday...
A pink and white spotty frock (70's) and an early 80's silver frock
And a pretty 60's floral mirror, which G loathes with a passion!
In fact, his words were:
"That's awful. It would look better if you nailed my cock to a cross and put a picture of it in that mirrored frame. A bleeding cocksifixion. That would look better"
I kid you not.
Who wants it, then?!
First in, first served!
And this is a late 50's two piece I bought at Sarah's favourite vintage shop!!
We have two weddings next month, and I reckon this will be perfect for the first one, a splendid Mother of the Bride look if ever there was one!
The sun is finally out with a vengeance here, and tonight we are going to go and see Permanence, a local Joy Division covers band.
I suspect I'm going to wear that silver frock I found today.....
