As I have been doing a lot of colour lately, I decided to try something different - black and gold.
I bought the dress from one of my favourite stalls on the market earlier this year, but thought it was a bit big for me. So I tried, but failed, to sell it on Ebay, and now I am keeping it; with the addition of a belt, it fits fine. It was too nippy to wear it as a sleeveless frock but put a black top underneath and hey presto - sleeves!
Black and gold isn't a combination I do much, I usually go for black and silver, but I like this!
And a girl needs a bit of leopard for company on a cold day.
Much side eye at school. Can't think why.
Youngest Child's teacher said I looked like a 70s rock chick dating Mick Jagger. She clearly hasn't seen Vix, who has the Rolling Stones groupie look nailed to perfection!
I think this is more a blend of Bet Lynch-meets-Mad Men, but I'm open to suggestions!
1960s black and gold wool dress and leopard print faux fur jacket (Chesterfield flea market), boots (Ebay), stripey bag with wooden handles (Ebay), belt (charity shop)
Assorted charity shopped and market stall bling, and the little cuff was from Vix.
I thought of using Gold Dust Woman as the title of this post, but I'm not really a cocaine-snorting rock chick kind of girl, despite what the teachers at school might imagine...
So I have headed for the calmer waters of a bit of country folk; just love those harmonies.
And if I ever give up the hair dye, I want my grey hair to look as beautiful as Emmylou Harris'.
