A picnic in our mate Lord Kahn's backyard is as good an excuse as any to get frocked and boozed up and while away the afternoon talking shit with good friends and great food!
The point was to take advantage of what Summer there is left, but we were nearly rained out, which about sums up our poor excuse for s Summer this year!
If it hasn't been wet, it's been howling a bloody gale, which plays havoc with my hair and allergies, so I strenuously object.
I've been a very good girl and have actually accomplished some sewing this last couple of weeks!
I managed to finish off a frock that had been lying about half made for about a year, and so glorified in it's success that I promptly made this one out of the duvet cover I opshopped last week!
(You'll see the other frock next post)
Wonders will never cease!
So I'm all fired up and am determined to make some more frockage, as I obviously need more frocks.
Stick with me, kids. We'll go far.
Frock-made by moi using an early 70's duvet cover
Mustard tights and orange whale nets-retail, somewhere
Cocktail hat and sunglasses-from my sistercousinwifey Sarah
(The gorgeous cocktail hat constantly fell off my head all afternoon until I finally stuffed into my handbag in fury. Next time I'll bloody well staple it on!)

Necklace-60's, from sweetheart Tamera
Handbag-70's tooled leather delight-opshopped for a fiver about 10 years ago
