Like Vix, I am working my way through my wonderful Nottingham finds from last week, and thoroughly enjoying it!
I just love the waves on this lurex maxi skirt - or are they snow-capped mountains?
What do you see?
I don't wear black as much as I used to, but I can't ignore its attractions completely. It has such potential for drama, especially when worn with red.
This dress wasn't a Nottingham find, but a recent Ebay purchase.
I have been slowly selling off bits and pieces from my wardrobe, things which weren't worn or loved enough to earn their place, so I treated myself to this little 1970s beauty of a frock, justifiable at a mere £3.50.
And on the subject of black, I have found three vintage Little Black Dresses in charity shops recently.
Clockwise from top left;
1970s floral disco dress - Ebay
1960s sequined evening dress
1960s shift dress
1970s David Butler by Pressler chiffon disco dress
Loving that David Butler label! This dress fits but doesn't particularly flatter, so will have to move on to its forever home via Ebay.
But oh it does remind me of Baccara!
Today's outfit isn't quite disco, but has a little 70s Spanish flavour going on.
1960-70s Go-del London lurex maxi skirt - Hopkinson's, Nottingham
1970s red blouse - gift from Tania
Waistcoat, bangles, necklace and beret - charity shopped
Boots - Ebay
Black hair flower - gift from Sarah
A surprising development this week;
after yet another phone call to Debenhams' HR centre, expressing my concern at the lack of courtesy shown by no one bothering to contact me after my interview, I received a call from the store, offering me a job!
Doubtless they would have been content to continue ignoring me had I not persisted in hassling them...
But beggars can't be choosers, I need to get back into employment, and this is a start.
The job in in the Menswear department; much as I'd like to see myself as young Mr Lucas, I fear I am more Mr Grainger these days.
But you'd buy your man's boxers from me, right?
This evening, we have a house full of 9 and 10 year old boys; it's Seldom Seen's 10th birthday tomorrow, and four of his pals are coming for scary films, popcorn, and a sleepover.
Wish me luck.
Have a wonderful weekend, whatever you're up to!
