I am loving orange at the moment. The always gorgeous Vintage Bird Girl was kind enough to mention me in this post (I adore her frock), which really tickled me as I was wearing this dress at the time.We were in sync in our choice of bright colour and print!
It's a homemade frock, in very a lightweight synthetic fabric which doesn't half cling... even with a trusty vintage slip underneath. But the colours are oh so gorgeous.
I am having to wear my flat comfy boots at the moment since I stubbed my little toe on the stairs while chasing my Boy, the Seldom Seen Kid. Since he rarely features in my posts (unlike his Blog Hog sisters), I thought you might like to see The Boy again, just to prove he exists. Here he is looking sinister with his Dad...
But I digress.
I don't suppose it's broken (the toe, that is) but man, does it hurt, and I can't stuff it into heels at the moment... I am such a clumsy clot. I gave the Boy a damn good tickling by way of punishment.

She looks just like me, don't you think?
Can I say a huge thank you to all my delightful followers, old and new, who commented on my last post? I did it as a joke, obviously, and had rather a I'm wearing a wig so no one will recognise me attitude to it. Then a couple of my "real life" friends saw the post and seemed a bit shocked, which somewhat alarmed me...
Was it too much? No, surely not!
I am so relieved that my blogging buddies get the joke, laugh along, and appreciate a bit of dressing up.
So while we're on the subject of orange bri-nylon nightwear...
I bought this fabulous 1960s nightdress off Ebay last year. It was described as a dress, but it is clearly a nightie. Could I wear it in daylight hours as a frock? Would you?
I went to a jumble sale on Saturday, which wasn't that great, but of course I managed to come home with a few bits and pieces.
Look - more orange!
1960s scarves, 10p each.
1950s brooches, 20p each.
There's more but I've got to cook dinner so I'll show you later. I hope you all had a delightful weekend!
