Trying to cheer up yet another wet saturday afternoon I browsed eBay and spotted this "Dollyrockers by Sambo" skirt. My heart beat rapidly, I went hot all over and my palms were clammy, not only my dream label and colourway but in my size, too!
As we were off out for the night I popped a snipe in for my maximum bid. I could hardly think of anything else all evening and the minute we got back in the house, even in my inebriated state, I raced to check the computer. I never for a moment thought that nobody else would bid on it and I'd win it for 99p!!!!
It turned up this morning, every bit as beautiful and perfect as I'd hoped and it's so coming to Goa with me next week. We grasped a rare break in the rain to rush outside and take a few snaps in the wilderness we call our garden.
I'm wearing the skirt with my trusty denim waistcoat, a ribbed vest and some beaded earrings I picked up from the Auroville Ashram in Pondicherry, India.
I spotted these fab shoes in the window of a charity shop in town earlier, labelled "Bruno Magli" and priced at £3 I'd have been mad not to, quite frankly!
If you're ever in need of information on a vintage clothing label you can't get do much better than
Tonight's plans have been scuppered as our fab friend, Adrian's gone down with the lurgy for his birthday so it looks like a night in with another of my favourite labels, Bacardi.
Have a fab night!
