I was so hot in town this morning I was tempted to Google "menopause" when I got home. I swear this hat has its own ecosystem.
According to The Guardian "Cossack hats are "too showy" to wear post-Christmas. Personally, I'd rather look showy than lose my ears to frostbite.
I found this 1960s vinyl & tapestry shopper in a chazza this morning, declined the carrier bag offered and stuffed the bag I was carrying inside as it looked far better than my original choice.
Birthday girl, Tamera sent me a parcel of joy yesterday. In it was this cool Harris Tweed Baker Bay cap it's namesake's already laid claim to, two groovy 1960s patterns, a stunning printed velvet maxi (currently undergoing a makeover), a lurex ruffle-trim sweater and a fantastic handmade card.

We've got to find outfits suitable for a red carpet glamour themed opening night for Wolverhampton Grand Theatre's production of High Society next week, yet more wardrobe chaos.

Have a fantastic weekend, I'm off to the pub as soon as I've caught up with my blog reading.
Have a good one and see you soon.
Yesterday I was interviewed by the fabulous Joanna Devoe for her You Tube channel. You can see me in action (and hear my appalling Black Country accent ) HERE.
