This is currently my favourite blouse, it seems to work well with all my skirts.
1970s peasant blouse (Ebay, 99p), Uttam embroidered skirt (flea market, £4), tights, belt and bangles (charity shop), boots (Ebay, can't recall how much), necklace and ring (handmade gifts from the awesome Krista)
I found a little stash of 1950s children's books in Oxfam at £2 each, so I bought these four.
Couldn't resist. Loving the little girl with the whip - feel free to make up your own caption!
I am out later tonight with some friends I used to work with, back when I was gainfully employed as something professional, and not just a housework-avoiding charity-shopping layabout.
I have had a little trying-on session and wonder if this is too much for a real ale pub in the back streets of Sheffield?
Probably! But why let that stop me?
The extra volume of the petticoat might get me some space at the bar!
1950s dress (vintage shop, reduced price because it needed some TLC), 1950s petticoat (St. Mary's vintage market), feather fascinator (Ebay), metallic T-bars and brooch (charity shops), sequin clutch bag (gift from Funky Diva Helga), faux pearls (swap prize from sweet Squirrel Vanessa)
Feathering my nest!
What do you think? De trop? No no!
I can live with being overdressed, I just hope I don't spill curry on my lovely frock. If anyone gives me side-eye, they can kiss my ruffles!
Wishing you all a fabulous weekend!
