Having rather lost my chazzing mojo of late, it was lovely to go out last week and have some success in the charity shops.
This 1980s dress is another shoulder-padded beauty.
I like them, they make me feel all Joan Crawford, statuesque and powerful.
Although Joan would have insisted a terrified minion re-ironed that pesky wrinkled rayon before her photo shoot...
I love the sweetheart neckline and the stand-up collar.
I think that whisk of the tail means Jess approves.
I also bought...
a 1970s style dress, £2.50...
...and three skirts.
Black steam punk-y bustle-effect skirt (I am thinking ahead to Halloween and wearing this with my corset), £3.99
Mango cotton velvet wrap skirt, £4
1970s paisley pencil skirt, £2
(I also bought jeans for Seldom Seen, school trousers and a waistcoat for Eldest, and an otter hand puppet for Littlest, just so you don't think it's always all about me!)
1980s Joni Blair dress, £4
Boots - Ebay
Necklace and bangles - charity shops
Tights - retail
Sunglasses - vintage shop
I think we are about coming to the end of the colour in the garden.
But I'm putting my (padded) shoulders back, wearing bright tights and prints, and making the most of the autumn sunshine!
Hope you have all enjoyed the weekend.
