Although maybe the 1980s triangular bag spoils the vibe just a tad...
What do you think? All I need is Lawrence Olivier to complete the look, right?
There you go. Dear dear Larry.
The lovely and very talented Lucy said she had found a skirt which she thought was me, but when the parcel arrived, she had not only sent this gorgeous green velvet maxi skirt, which fits me perfectly, but also a little jacket, bangle and brooch. Naughty Lucy! But thank you very much, I love all your gifts.
The jacket almost looks like snakeskin, but it's a knit fabric. Kinda Missoni-esque, what do you reckon?

I had a good old chazzathon with some friends on Friday, and found a few bargains - some to keep, some destined for Ebay. The best part of the day was the good company and the abundant laughter.
Black sequinned beret (Christmas present from Patsy), 1960s silk scarf (£1, flea market), Gudrun Sjoden black cord jacket (£4.99, charity shop), 1980s Laura Ashley black silk fitted blouse (£2.99, charity shop), 1970s (?) homemade green velvet maxi skirt (gift from Lucy), silver hinged cuff (£3, Brick Lane market), 1980s suede bag (free, won it), black wedge ankle boots (bought full retail price about 15 years ago, pre-kids, when I worked full-time and spent money on myself!)
I had a good Bonfire Night, hope you did too (well, those UK residents who do Bonfire Night, that is!)
I rather liked what I wore, which was a bit Ali McGraw in Love Story, or so I fondly imagined, but of course I didn't take photos to prove it.
I will have to recreate the look on another occasion. I am such a bad Blogger!
