In order to do this in proper Friday style, I wore;
So I started off being sensible but got a bit giddy. Well it is Friday.
1970s German-made polka dot peasant dress (vintage shop); tights, belt, ring and bangle (charity shop), Jones lace-up boots (Ebay), red woven earrings (present from the lovely Sarah), ridiculous expression (all my own work).
I got a few looks on the walk to school as usual, I am getting used to that. There's nothing particularly eyebrow-raising about this dress, is there? Skirt-raising, maybe.
One of my charity-shopped bargains I bagged the other day was this red and black wool dress by Kay Bee of Leicester.
Not much hanger appeal, as I believe the phrase goes. But I love the label, and look, the dress still has a brooch in place, presumably just where the previous owner left it. For some reason that makes me rather sad.
Now it's a little big for me but I'm hoping that with the addition of a belt, I can work the whole Mad Men look. What do you think?
1960s Kay Bee of Leicester 100% virgin wool dress (£5), belt and sunnies (charity shop), 1960s Jane Shilton handbag (vintage fair). Can't get the bloody pattern on these tights to sit straight, oh well.
You must see the resemblance! Joan and I - it's like looking in a mirror. Yeah, I know - dream on!
Ahh, Joan, she's sooo gorgeous.
Sheffield has 3 vintage fairs happening tomorrow, what are the chances of that happening? I am determined to work my way through them all, but have a restricted budget, so I must NOT peak too early.
Wish me luck, and I hope you all have a fine weekend.
