Reading Helga's latest post this morning whilst waiting for the tea to brew I was reminded of a similar 1970's frock picked up recently at a jumble sale. I'd loved the colours and the fit but the length was a bit on the frumpy side so it had been consigned to the "maybe" pile in the bottom of a cupboard. A quick session with the Wondaweb, a hot iron and my trusty pinking shears and voila, a dress fit for a Vix.
Coat and boots (TopShop), Vintage bag and dress (both 20p finds), Jewellery (India)
I do so love my chartreuse coat, another case where I fell in love at full price in TopShop and waited patiently until it was knocked down to £20. This is it's third winter and it never fails to brighten my day when I wear it.
Leader of the opposition, David Cameron's wife, Samantha, has the very same coat, but I bet she paid full price.
It's so cold here today that we've got a fire blazing in the grate.
Never mind, there's just three weeks left till we jet off to India for a month of Goan sunshine.
