Work is finished for the year, the cupboards are full, and I believe I am ready to party!
How to style a pair of your daughter's leopard ears.
Pinch them; then put 'em on. Simple.
Our friends Diana and Jim always throw a winter party featuring a brazier and outdoor seating. I thought a sleeveless frock was fine for the indoor parts of the do, then I can throw the leopard fur back on for the outdoorsy bits.
We're off round to theirs a bit later on today, and look, I'm ready to go!
1970s C&A maxi dress and ankle boots - Ebay
1970s Wallis faux fur jacket - Kinky Melon's Retro Boutique
Bangles - charity shopped
Ears - nicked off Claudia
There are more festivities tomorrow, at Sal and Terry's annual Christmas Eve gathering.
Hmm, what shall I wear?
This was yesterday's final supermarket shop outfit.
Actually, it was all quite civilised at Morrisons, busy but good-natured, and I managed to talk Simon out of buying the entire cheese counter this year... Believe me, that's quite a feat of negotiation.
1970s Decosse Scottish tweed coat - flea market
Flares - made by me from 1970s fabric and pattern
Top, ankle boots, necklace and bangles - charity shopped
Belt - retail (sale)
And that's me ready for the festive season. I hope you are doing (or not doing) Christmas in whatever way suits you best, with a minimum of stress and maximum enjoyment.
Wishing you happy times, my friends!
