Busy busy busy this morning; shopping for the food for the school Christmas fair next week, and finalising volunteer lists.
Now, I must confess I didn't wear this to Lidl and B&M Bargains (affectionately known round these parts as Bum Bargains).
I spotted this fabulous 1970s dress in a charity shop on Monday for a mere fiver, and a quick underarm to underarm measurement with Mrs M McCalman's tape measure indicated that despite being labelled a size 14 (that's about a 10 in today's money), it might be OK.
It's more than OK, it's discotastic!
I am pleased as punch that it fits, it's going to be my Christmas party frock.
I just need to be invited to some parties now.
And be able to attend (work is already interfering with my social life; that's no good, is it?)
But for the purposes of trying on and showing off, I swanned about in the garden in a disco Dolly Day dream, with added feathers and sequins.
1970s Dolly Day maxi dress, most of the bangles, hairband, shoe boots and feather boa - charity shopped
Rings - had them years
Sequin clutch bag - gift from the divinely inappropriate Helga
I know, I know - I was all grumpy about wearing black for work.
But it's amazing the difference a chiffon frill and some diamante can make. I feel love!
Flower? Starburst? Dandelion clock?
Thank you for being so supportive and encouraging while I moaned on about about my new girl angst. I know I'll get the hang of it and feel more competent at work soon. I'll stop whining now and just get on with it!
So what disco classic might be the soundtrack to your weekend?
Ain't No Stoppin' Us Now?
More More More?
Whatever you're dancing to, I hope you have Good Times!
