...with my little eye, something beginning with "S".
A silk shift in the sunshine.
a sketch by the super-talented Anne at Spygirl - she has been kind enough to add me to her fabulous digital catwalk of blogging beauties;
and my dear blog friend Shelley sent me a splendid selection of gifts - a gorgeous beaded purse necklace and a colourful rustling taffeta confection of a maxi skirt.
Thank you so much, Anne and Shelley - yet again, blogging has brought me into contact with such creative and generous people.
I had a few comments at school about this outfit - complimentary, yes, but along the lines of I could never wear all that bright colour.
Why ever not?
The very windy conditions were far more of a challenge than the clothes!

These amazing fishnets were a real surprise.
They seemed tiny when I got them out of the packet and I thought they would reach about as far as my knees and no further. And that's never a good look...
Just shows you have to give things a go - they do fit, and they are wonderfully sparkly in the sun.
I'm a lurex Panty Ho!
And I know I am preaching to the choir here, but there's nothing like blogger friendships, sharing the vintage love, and some bright colour to warm the heart.
Err, not today, thank you!
