There's A Guy Goes Down The Jumble Swears I'm Cher


...and he's a bit mad to be honest, but he's utterly convinced that she and I are one and the same. 


Nothing I can say will persuade this guy otherwise and he follows me around various church halls with big puppy dog eyes, trying to get my autograph. What Cher would be doing buying her clothes at a jumble sale in the Black Country is beyond me.


In fact ever since I dyed my hair black I've been serenaded by random strangers singing Cher songs and people remarking on the likeness.

1970's brushed denim feather trimmed maxi skirt (£6.19, eBay), Vintage Broderie Anglaise & ribbon camisole (20p, Jumble sale), Bone & turquoise wolf choker (50p, Car boot sale), 1970's braid in hair (found in my sewing box)

I'm more than flattered, Cher rocks!

  20. In this outfit you look like a cross between Cher and Pocahontas!

    That skirt looks absolutely wonderful with that feather waist band and paired with the head band and howling wolf necklace and ethnic jewellery you are simply oozing American Indian woman!

    Love this look! You should go with it more often! xxx

    ReplyDelete
  21. it IS a Cher-esque outfit! i especially love that little white top-it would be perfect for the heat we are having in Chicago right now :( and this is old news, but i really love the photo that you're using as a header now...gorgeous!!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Haha, I love the story about the man following you around. I can definitely see the resemblance though :) I love the skirt you've got on here, you look amazing! And thanks, I had a good time at my Nana's. xxx

    ReplyDelete
  23. Vix I would absolutely love it if one day you adopted an American accent and gave him that autograph. Can you imagine his face?!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Thanks Vix, I like to think my Nana has good taste too :) You're lucky to have those kind friends, unfortunately I obviously don't know some of my friends as well as I should. It is incredibly sad the news we've all heard this week. xxx

  27. That skirt is superb! Love it.

    I never get compared to anyone exotic - someone once asked me if I was related to Stacey Slater from Eastenders. Er, no: she isn't real, hahaha!

    ReplyDelete
  28. You look mischievous today.I love your outfit, it's very hiawotha (if that's how you spell it). Never been Drayton Manor? Maybe we should meet up there for a day on the rides. Xx

    ReplyDelete
  29. Haha wouldn't it be a tale if Cher did get her clothes from jumble sales!! x

    ReplyDelete

  34. Ha I had to laugh at the man, bless him. Cher wishes she looks like you more like! Fab outfit x

    ReplyDelete
  35. Way more gorgeous than Cher, but I agree with a PP and one day you should pretend you are her!
    That skirts fab, love the feathery detail.

    ReplyDelete
  36. I could totally see people mistaking you for Cher, but as everyone else is saying.. you are surely more attractive!
    That skirt you have got on is one of the most awsomest maxi's I have ever seen! WOW!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Hehe how funny! You do look like super 70's Cher, if I were you I'd totally give him an autograph! xx

    ReplyDelete
  38. You are a true gypsy woman! You wear this look so well! I love your bone necklace and I'm always a fan of the hippie headband! Really love this look!

    ReplyDelete
  39. You do look quite like Cher. I love her - have done ever since Moonstruck (when I soooo wanted her hair). xx

    ReplyDelete
  40. You look fantastic Vix! I love this outfit! I once met someone who was convinced i was moaning myrtle from Harry Potter, he was very drunk though xxx

    ReplyDelete
  41. Vix, that skirt is ah-mazing. That feather trim is definitely one of a kind and you are so channeling So Cal of the 60s and 70s esp. with that crop top. You are looking very Cher-like indeed. I don't think that fellow is too far off the mark!

  42. ooh, you look fabulous!!, and love your skirt and all that feathers accessories and the headband, so hippie-chic!, pretty good inspiration!
    besos

    ReplyDelete
  43. Vix you look wonderful! And MUCH hotter than Cher, though I love her! I also like to think she likes a casual bit of thrifting now and then!

    much love amie xxxx

    ReplyDelete
  44. the red dart of color on the skirt ties this all together so nicely. You look lovely. That guy is still Chering you!

    ReplyDelete
  45. But have you and Cher ever been seen in the same room? Hmmm....

    I like what you wrote on Lady Cherrys post about Amy Winehouse. Such a tragic waste.

  46. Made me smile this post did ;-)) You look gorgeous, dee xx

    ReplyDelete
  47. Oh soooo Gypsies, Tramps and Thieves!
    You look amazing, nobody works a headband like you, Vix!
    Very minxy little smile in the photos, I think - channelling Cher, no doubt xxx

  49. ...and he's a liar and I'm not sure about you! Oh, that was Elvis! lol!

    You could give Cher a good run for her money althought Jon does have the look of Sonny! PMSL!

  50. You are far more beatiful than Cher amor. I do love me some Cher. you top this look, love your accesories and feather headband. You cute little Indian girl.
    just give the poor man an autograph. :)

    ReplyDelete
  51. You look beautiful!
    Cher will be honor to be compared to all of your loveliness and coolness.
    Con amor,

    ReplyDelete
  52. Phaaaaaaarrrking hell Vix!!!! I'm about to pass out from emotion over that skirt - if I have a stroke over your outfits, you'll know it was with much joy and rapid heartbeats:)))). Gawd you look amaaaaaazing - milk the Cher thing - you could call the bluff of the Cher believers and tell them "I'm Cher's baby sister - the good-looking one of the family". xooxoxoxoxoxoxxoo

  53. Admiring the feathers.

    I suggest that you give the guy an autograph and actually sign it Cher. He might just leave you alone then and it will make for a great story to tell...whomever.

    My DH used to have this problem...people mistook him for Clint Eastwood, to the point that in Jamaica, he did sign an autograph or two, as "Clem" Eastwood.

  54. You are so freaking hot in this Cher-esk outfit. Your beautiful long black hair that adorable headband, loving that wolf necklace and your sweet sexy waist make you purrrrfect!

    I would follow you around too :)

    ReplyDelete
  55. I think you are way more beautiful than Cher too. This outfit is simply amazing. I love the skirt!

    ReplyDelete
  56. Aww, bless the old fella'! You look even better than Cher, as fab as she is. I like your feather belt! Xoxoxox

    ReplyDelete
  57. Wow, wow, wow, the skirt! It's simply amazing! Re: puppy dog eyes, I think you should give him a Cher autograph and tell him when your next album's out. Cher would approve. Would probably make his year, how cute!

  58. I used to get that all the time too, like you I have dark hair and high cheekbones - it's all in the cheekbones!

    ReplyDelete
  59. I think you are much hotter than Cher, but can see why you get remarks, bless that guy for following you about. Bet he tells everyone he meets than him and Cher know each other.

    Love the headband, looks great.

  60. Much as I love Cher, you are way more awesome. I love the feather belt xx

    ReplyDelete
  70. I've always thought you looked like Cher. Fantastic picture and you look beautiful. You and Cher rock. Love you xx

    ReplyDelete
  71. I don't blame him honey! besides Cher no longer looks like Cher so someone has to!! You are HOT Vix. HOTTTTTT.

    ReplyDelete
  72. I can definately see the resemblance while Cher still had her natural beauty. I'm not to crazy about her cut and paste look in recent years. So definately the early Cher.

    ReplyDelete
  73. Cher is one of my fav singers. You do look alike, but at least your beauty is all natural!
