I couldn't decide which Friday frock to wear but the postman came to my rescue, delivering two dresses I'd snaffled in an inebriated haze on eBay over the weekend. I've been very naughty lately, alcohol and eBay can be dangerous.
This Sylvan English boutique label maxi was described as a long nylon dress and was mine for just over a fiver. It's labelled as a size 16 which just goes to prove that vintage labels should always be taken with a pinch of salt (or a litre of cheap white wine, in my case).
|Turquoise & coral cuff (India), turquoise metal cuff (49p, Banardos), Moonstone ring set in a nest of vipers, Turquoise ring (both India), 1960's beaten metal ring (Made by Mum before I was born), Cyan Blue nails by Barry M|
Floaty fabrics call for a heavy metal overload in my book, I'm far more rock chick than ethereal flower fairy. If you can't hear me rattling something's amiss.
|1970's Egyptian scarab pendant (£1, car boot sale)|
|Silver and turquoise earrings (Tangier, 1993)|
|Lapis Lazuli ring set in silver (exam passing present from Dad, 1977), Tibetan twisted silver and turquoise bangle, silver finger and cobra rings (all India), silver dipped beaten brass bangle (inherited from Mum)|
It's been very wet here over the last 24 hours, the car boot wasn't worth attempting so we went on a successful charity shopping mission instead. There's some interesting bits to show you but at the moment it's mostly strung up around the house as line drying's out of the question.
It's a quiet night in this evening in preparation for a night on the town tomorrow. We not only have a refurbished Wetherspoons to inspect but one of most imposing buildings in the town centre has opened as real ale pub, too.
What on earth am I going to wear?
