Little Parcels Of Joy


The postman's been with two marvellous parcels. I scored this 1960's pink and gold minidress on eBay yesterday for a mere £2.50 yesterday and received it today. How exciting! 

Accessorised with gold-coloured bangles from Tamil Nadu, Barry M Nail Paint in Turquoise, 50p vintage lace-up ankle boots from the car boot sale and socks stolen from Jon's drawer.


Not only a fab new frock but a parcel brimming with exciting treasures from my darling Helga all the way from New Zealand.


Vintage macrame belt and pendant, a New Zealand headscarf and Kangaroo print satin head square, Festival earrings, "Can We Help It If We're Fabulous?" by Peta Mathias along with a beautiful card featuring a Paua shell.


Not only all that but there's another parcel arriving here very shortly, a yummy Indian takeaway from the local balti house!

  2. Takes me right back. Only I see shiny white knee-boots in my memory. How I loved them. Never had a pair. Too poor.

    You look so good!

  6. That dress is divine and I love the nail colour with the pink! I am so bad at buying clothes on ebay, I never seem to fit anything if I can't try it on first.

    Thank you for your comment on my blog :) Matlock is lovely! There is a wonderful shop just out of Matlock called Bow Boutique in Cromford, I want to buy everything there! x

    Hanging in my mums wardrobe for many years was a similar dress but in gold. Then, just when I was old enough to wear it she binned it!!

    I love the pink colour - as usual it looks very good on you.
