A Quiet Night In



I've already been out three nights this week so tonight it's a quiet night in front of the tv with a cheese salad, time to recharge the batteries in readiness for Saturday night. 



The frock's nothing new and, along with the shawl, it's featured on my blog several times. I don't own any slobby clothes, even if I'm staying in I try to make an effort to look halfway decent. 



Favourite thing on a Friday? A bottle of rose and the boxed set of Sons Of Anarchy (on loan from a lady I know at the swimming baths).

Vintage crimplene maxi dress (20p, jumble sale), crochet shawl (25p, jumble sale), Lamani coin anklet (Indian street market), Rose wine (The Co-Op)

Have a fabulous evening. Us Brits have a three day weekend and typically it hasn't stopped raining all day.

  1. Hi my dear!! Sounds like you've had such a fabulous week and checking out your previous post, its great to see you and your lovely friends out in force having a fabulous time!! The curry looks soo delicious and how great to see your past pictures when you were a blonde too! You have such a pretty face I think you suit being a blond or brunette, but dark hair does make you look very exotic looking!! Wishing you a lovely weekend and heres hoping the rain dries up for our 3 day weekend, today has been continuous!!! xxxx

  3. The weathers hideous isn't it, hasn't stopped raining here in East Yorkshire at all today and it's having a mighty throw down atm. They keep claiming on the local news it's not going to rain on Sunday or Monday - but i'm too cynical to believe them x

  6. Yep, been peeing down all day here too. Bank holiday BBQ anyone? That's what I was hoping for, but we'll have to see...
    I love the colours and print on your dress - it's good to dust off Old Faithfuls (as Sarah calls them) now and again.
    Enjoy your rose and your salad (we've just had a casserole and crumble for pud, the autumnal weather has influenced my menu planning!)
    Have a fab weekend, love xxxxxxxx

  10. Enjoy your evening. Lovely photographs, especially the last one. Sometimes I dress up when I'm not going anywhere and usually end up looking better than when I am going out. Ashamed to say I own PLENTY of slobby clothes!

  13. You look so lovely in those photos, you glam girl you. I'm lounging about in my old pjs with a little glass of something and a roaring fire because it's August Bank Holiday, pouring with rain and a bit chilly! Have a good one.

  15. Look at you all cute chillin' with a big tall yummy glass of wine. LOVE you! Some other series I can't resist are
    Dexter
    True Blood
    and I got on the Mad Men train :)

    btw if you wanna laugh your arse off a must see is Dirty Love with Jenny McCarthy, so funny in a totally inappropriate way.

    Enjoy the time off, hope the rain moves on.

  16. Hi vix!
    Thanks for the great photo,it was perfect!
    I can't believe thats you as a blonde. you are very pretty, but it just doesn't say Queen Vix of India the Black-haired Goddess!
    ( I too was a blonde and with ever short curly perm in the early 80's!)
    i always had black roots :)
    Have a terrific weekend,my love!

  17. I love quiet nights in! The wine glasses are gorgeous! I love the thick, green tinted glass. I also really love your anklet! I've been trying to find one with silver beads!

  18. How glamorous you look for lounging about the house; I don't look that good when I'm going out!

    You look especially gorgeous when you smile.

  19. Happy weekend Vix. Everytime I see you looking gorgeous when you are just hanging out at home I always resolve to do the same more.

    (rain's meant to stop tomorrow!)

  20. Halfway decent?! More than,I say! For sure,a girl can't let ehr standards down just because she's staying home!!! I don't own any sloppy clothes either,I just couldn't wear them if I did.I don't really understand sloppy!
    I used to be a slut for rose,according to G.....I think I used to drink Mateus when he and I first got it on.It's a bit too light for me now,I do like a grunty red!
    Lovely to have a quiet Friday,I do enjoy it when I have one...mind you,ours was fairly quiet,we just went out to visit friends in the country.
    Love YOU!!!!

  21. I am also having a quiet night in. Supposed to be saving myself for a jazz festival tomorrow, but as you the british weather may ruin my plans. But hey its a bank holiday . Woo Hoo

  22. Have been away this week and just catching up on all of your posts. Love the historic photos of you - gorgeous girl! I'm blonde (dyed to enhance it) and wish I suited dark hair, would be so much easier to maintain. I'm far too lazy to keep on top of it and do anything with it. You are lucky to suit both colours.

    Love that you lounge in maxi dresses and shawls, I'm sitting here in joggers and a vest, I must make more of an effort.

    Have a fab weekend!

  26. I urgently need some UK jumble sales! this dress is amazing and I loooove the price, as always!
    Your Lamani coin anklet is to die for.
    When I'm at home, I usually wear slobby clothes and don't make any effort on my look, haha ;)

  27. I'm having a night in also. Cooking brats and kraut and watching Marlene Deitrich in "The Blue Angel" in German. You look great! -T

    ReplyDelete
  28. Ohhh so now I know why you look good all the time.
    Because you don't have slobby clothes. I should really take a lesson from you and not keep any at my house either. BUT I have some.. I like them *Hahaha*
    To me there is nothing like jumping into a pair of sweats and a tank and watching a movie under a fluffly blanket.

    You look great and I love the dress alot. Have a good weekend Vix! =D

  29. If I looked as great as you do, I'd forgo slovenly clothes as well. Heck, I'd do without clothes all together. Hope your evening was relaxing and the wine divine.

  34. I cannot even imagine you in a pair of tracky daks and uggs, darling! You look so glam and relaxed - I love your frock and anklet and you know I'm a sucker for a crocheted shawl.

    I've never heard of Sons of Anarchy but you've mentioned it a few times now so I googled it and it looks pretty amazing PLUS it's available on itunes so I know what I'm doing tonight!

    Hope the weather clears up, amor!

    Love, Sarah xxx

  35. Ah I wish I looked to glam slobbing around at home, I wear PJs much to my shame!

    Hope you had a lovely relaxing night in

    ReplyDelete
  36. I agree with Sarah, I couldn't imagine you in trackies or ugh boots. You look very relaxed! Happy long weekend x

  37. Nothing beats a quiet night in when it so so bloody miserable outside. Never would have guessed it suppose to be August! You look lovely as usual, love the pattern on the dress!

  41. I'm actually quite glad about the rain. I'm in work on Monday and I've had a sofa day watching sport on the tv today so it would have been a total waste if it had been sunny!

    ReplyDelete
  42. Great wine glasses and I love how fashionable you look lounging on your coach (I especially love your anklet- very gypsy fabulous!)

    ReplyDelete
  43. Thank you Vix, I do hope we pull through this hurricane with everything intact. Anyway I love the sons of anarchy show as well, so excited for the upcoming season, I even met Ron Pearl man!!!

    ReplyDelete
  44. Theres that fab shawl again that I love, looking elegant on your night in. My daugther raves about Sons of Anarchy too, but I've never seen it, am I missing something??? You'll have to let me know if its got alot of violence in tho first as I don't like violence. Hope you enjoyed your night in, and you are probably at a car boot as I type this so can't wait to see what you found.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Ok so can you pls explain to the uninitiated (i.e., me) what Sons of Anarchy is? Unlike Sarah I'm too lazy to look it up but I'm sure I'm not the only reader who doesn't know about it. You make me want to chuck my fugly clothes out...but then I'd never get any painting done :)

    ReplyDelete
  46. Even your stay at home look is fashionable! Mine is usually my flannelette pj pants and a jumper haha

    E :)

  48. Your evening sounds inviting, Vix. I relaxed with a martini last nite and right now I've got a cup of Joe to see me thru blogging. I would love it if it rained here, it has been bloody hot!

    I've enjoyed your last few posts esp. the pix of you as a blonde and that lovely photo of you and your mom. What a treasure.

    Oh, here is a burning question, what is a cheese salad?

    xoxo, Bonnie

  49. You look really happy in that last pic. I'm in tonight after 3 nights out in a row - even off the wine, my liver needs a break! xx
