What I wore last night.
The dress is another from my stash of 11 vintage shifts I found at a jumble sale this week. To be honest I'm not a lover of pink and despite my high heels and long hair I'm not what you'd call a girly-girl. Chocolate and cupcakes don't float my boat, I can't get interested in chick-lit or rom-coms and I'm more comfortable with a pint of real ale down the pub than a glass of the bubbly stuff in a city centre wine bar.
I played down the colour of the dress by going overboard with the turquoise accessories. The bag was a hand-made gift from a talented friend and the shoe boots are Dune seconds from a stall on my local market.
The cost of the outfit?
Vintage 60's dress - 20p
Shoe boots - £7
Vinyl gloves - 99p
Tights - Gift
Bag - Gift
Earrings - 60p
Total - £8.79
Thanks for the lovely comments left on my last post. In answer to those who left questions:
Bella - I like to browse the high street for inspiration and trawl the charity shops and boot sales for similiar pieces. I agree with you, fashion is usually a rehash of past styles just put together in a different way.
Vicki - Thanks for the compliment! Yoga and lots of swimming keep my arms toned. They used to be embarrasingly scrawny but plenty of exercise have at last made them fit for public inspection!
Rose & Bird: I search my local newspaper's Classifieds on-line for jumble sales and I'm always scouring the adverts in local shop windows and community centre noticeboards.
Heart Shaped Bruise: Thanks for following. I'd love to follow you but I can't seem to access your blog.
