My moaning's paid off and we woke to glorious sunshine and warm temperatures this morning. Inspired by our Indian Summer I cracked open the battered leather suitcase I keep packed with my India travel gear and dug out my favourite vintage pink paisley maxi skirt by way of a celebration.
This skirt has been to India with me at least five times. It was 75p from the Cat's Protection League over three years ago and being polyester washes and dries within an hour, the perfect travel attire when trailing around dusty towns or strolling along a moonlit seashore. The scarf is vintage Liberty, living in a distinctly uncool town most people don't have a clue about high-end labels and this cost 75p from a charity shop in town a couple of weeks ago. The earrings were from the Auroville Ashram, just outside Pondicherry in India.
It's the first Thursday in weeks that it hasn't either rained or we've been away at a festival so needless to say we were at the regular Car Boot Sale bright and early. Here's some of my latest booty:
More to add to our collection.
Perfect for my retro dressing table when the spare bedroom's ready
This pair cost £2. Such a shame I don't smoke or wear powder.
This pretty pendant is huge, just how I like my jewellery
...and this one's ever bigger!
I also got a 1953 Film Show Annual with the most fabulous photographs of the film stars of the day in glorious technicolour.
The gorgeous Elizabeth Taylor in Ivanhoe
Voluptuous Virginia Mayo in She's Back On Broadway
Blonde Bombshell Glynis Johns
Hopefully this little number will be seen pounding the streets of India again before the end of the year.
