I nearly made myself late for my friday swim this morning all in a tizz about what to wear with my green frock.
Knee-high boots were too wintery, sandals showed a tad too much leg, ankle books looked too clunky so I went for some charity-shopped black patent heeled brogues and more socks stolen from the old man's drawer.
The dress is an "Almedahl of Sweden" and another £2.50 find on Ebay this week. I'm not familiar with the maker, perhaps my favourite Scandanavian minx, Calamity Jem, knows of it?
My oversized velvet tote was just the right size to carry my swimming togs and any charity shop bargains I found along the way (just a groovy teeshirt for Jon).
I found this fab pendant in amongst a box of house clearance tat at the car boot sale yesterday morning. It's stamped "Lord Python Designs Ltd., Sheffield, England". I thought 50p was a fair price so didn't bother haggling.
I've just got time to clear away the mess I created this morning during my wardrobe crisis before I go out. We're introducing a friend's Spanish boyfriend to the delights of the Black Country boozer. Care to join us for a pint of mild, a pickled egg and a pork scatching, anyone?
