Freakin' Fabulous Friday


If I hadn't had enough excitement this week with the news that my darling Krista's coming to visit, look what the postman delivered, only this incredible vintage midi skirt, once owned by the gorgeous Sabine's auntie. It's loud, it's 1970s and it's knitted, I've got the feeling I'll be living in this.


Also in the parcel was this stunning Indian embroidered maxi dress which was Sabine's Mum's back in the day. It's a perfect fit, I love it.

Receiving parcels from favourite bloggers is definitely my favourite thing on a Friday .


I exercised restraint in the chazza shops today. I donated three bags full of Jon's old clobber, a pair of shoes that cripple me and a heap of paperback books and only came back with two purchases, a Native American beaded pendant and a groovy tiger print top.


Sabine wasn't the only blogging goddess sending parcels of joy, Polly Piglet's loving this pretty antique throw  lovely Emma sent me yesterday.

Vintage midi skirt worn with a 1980s jersey bodysuit, go-go boots, a patchwork duffel bag and a heap of ethnic jewellery.

It's a quiet night in for us tonight, there's a bottle of Havana Club rum on ice, a fridge full of food and an entire series of Sons Of Anarchy to catch up on.

Have a fab weekend and see you soon.

That skirt is amazing.

Dina said...

Ok, you have to help me here...I'm an American. What does "chazza" mean?
I'm also wondering about "clobber".
Great outfit, as usual!

Trashsparkle said...

Amazing skirt - it looks brilliant with the bodysuit and boots. And love the button detailing. Wish I'd kept every shoulder bag I used to have when I was 11 or so - that pattern is very familiar; think mine was brown and green

Been a day of laziness here - painting my toenails, pulling up a couple of weeds in the garden, facebook... so exhausting I had to have a snooze at 5 ;) Have a great weekend - rum sounds good! xx

Melanie said...

I love that Indian maxi, it's so pretty, the fabric looks really soft. I adore Indian cottons for this reason, shame it's always so fragile though.

What a magnificent skirt! Just gorgeous! You are welcome to come to Paris anytime, just give us a shout to organise if ever the fancy takes you! xx

GreenFlag said...

The skirt is magnificent.

Vix, what is your view on this - do you think you are able to find such lovely pieces because you are a petit size? Do you think sizes 16 or 18 would find it harder or not?

You are inspiring.
