The lovely Sharon from My Style, Thrifting, Fashion and Me surprised me with a parcel earlier this week. If you haven't visited her wonderfully inspiring blog then you really should. I've been following Sharon for as long as I've been blogging, she has style, grace and beauty and her ability to pick up a catwalk-inspired vintage bargain from a charity shop or car boot sale is second-to-none.
Here is the gorgeous lady herself sporting a vintage faux fur coat and a pair of blinging stripper-style platforms she picked up from last Sunday's car boot sale.
Sharon and I are of similar ages and she's a big 1980's fan. I was thrilled with this Jinty's dress she picked for me as it's a label I recognise from my teens. The batwing sleeves, rhinestone embellishments and eye-popping shade of electric blue (now rechristened cobalt by the fashion pack) were all the things I adored back in the day.
Jinty's 1980's disco dress worn with leopard print tights, last week's £5 studded shoe boots, a vintage vinyl clutch bag from the British Heart Foundation in Worcester plus heaps of jewellery.
Here's the rest of the parcel: Cotton floral maxi dress, Hobbs beaded top, Italian golden chain belt, 1960's inspired dogtooth baker boy cap, Eiffel tower greetings card.
An adorable Butler and Wilson cat brooch. He looks just like our cat.

Thanks, Sharon and thanks as well to everyone who reads my blog! I can't believe that I've got over 500 followers.
