Like my dear friend Helga , I just have to dress up for the supermarket dash. Why, oh why, do women insist on pushing their trollies down the aisles dressed in grubby jersey and ugg-ly boots? The supermarket is the one place you're almost guaranteed to bump into an ex, your old boss or even the school bully (who, incidentally, send me a friend request on Facebook this morning...no way, honey!) The only way that you can face these people is by feeling fabulous.
I won this vintage "Harriet of London" waistcoat on eBay at the weekend for the princely sum of £1.70 (with £2 postage). My hair is in dire need of a wash hence the beret.
The shorts are a pair of revamped gent's evening pants.
I found these English-made vintage handbags in my local hospice shop for £2.95 yesterday. The green one had a pair of matching gloves and a make-up mirror tucked inside. I spotted the shoes in Debenhams. Both pairs had been marked down in the Blue Cross Sale and with a gift card that had been knocking around in my purse for months the total purchase price came to £4!
This pretty 1970's era maxi dress was another eBay win over the weekend, it cost £2.24 (with postage) and it fits like a dream.
Big love to the beautiful Em for the mention yesterday. Her blog and utter passion for fashion make me smile. Cheers, darling!
