Like a naughty little girl I was sent upstairs and made to tidy the bedroom today. Jon was fed up with tripping up over discarded shoes, scarves and handbags and having to move mountains of frocks to get into bed each evening so he's finally relented, allowing me to have the hanging rail in his wardrobe for my overspill. Now I have a wardrobe for separates and another for dresses and jumpsuits, it's like a whole new world, I can see all my clothes at a glance. He's just the best.
I unearthed this maxi dress from the bottom of the pile, bought on eBay a few weeks ago for the grand total of £2.24 (including P&P). It came with a purple sash which looks a bit too Abigail's Party for day wear so I'm wearing a 50p faux leather belt I found in the YMCA charity shop and hippy-ed it up with some wooden jewellery I've picked up over the years at markets and car boots.
I bought these oversized "Googles" sunglasses, complete with original case for 10p at Thursday's car boot sale . Googles was a West German label and the height of fashion back in the late 1970's. Even as a kid I was sunglasses-obsessed, my faves were white plastic heart-shaped Lolita glasses which I wore with my patchwork flares and "Love Is" teeshirt during the long hot summer of '76.
Remember my 1950's goatskin clutch I bought for 50p at a car boot sale in March? I didn't...I found it stuffed in my basket of clutch bags.
Here's some more of the fab vintage stuff I bought from the seller I bought the hats and scarves from at Thursday's car boot sale. These beautiful ladies are all original black and white framed photographs from yesteryear, I can't resist a pretty lady.

This 1920's bathing beauty has to be my favourite, isn't she a stunner?
