Move Over, Jarvis

I'd planned a special car boot sale post for today, took my camera around the field and snapped some crazy stuff but when I took delivery of a parcel from the fabulous Curtise on my return it all went out of the window. 


Look at this freaking Bernshaw frock, I'm lost for words over it's amazingness. I can't wait to wear it barefoot at the next Goan beach party. 
Curtise has now officially replaced Jarvis Cocker as best person ever to come out of Sheffield (and I've been in love with him for twenty years).


I'm going to have a mid-week beer and a curry in it's honour & try not to spill any down myself.


It's another early start for us tomorrow, a jumble sale, a car boot sale, collecting our latest eBay buy and visiting Dad (who's still in hospital). I still haven't found that ring, I reckon Lakota's right and a Borrower really is wearing it as a tiara.

Have a fantastic evening and see you soon.

  3. Sorry to hear about your father (I must have missed it the first time you wrote of it.)

    That's a great color on you. Did it survive the curry?

    I'm loving the leaves all over the ground around you! Ours are just THINKING about falling.

  11. Fabulous dress - you always look amazing in green!
    Did you see any of Pulp's set at Reading this year? I'd forgotten how much I liked them back in the day (still do). Sorted For Es and Wizz has to be my favourite song.

  28. Dearest Vix,
    YOWZA, sauce pot!
    That dress is so hot, you could probably fry an egg on it & that cut is killer!
    BTW, you asked a while back if my blue wig was from one of the local hair emporiums...it's not, I found it lurking at the bottom of a bargain bin in a charity shop some years ago, I paid 50p for it...bargain bin indeed :)
    Lot's of love,
    Jennie

  36. Wow! That's an amazing dress! I love the colour. I love Jarvis too - I remember a few years back and he toured Australia but not NZ, I was so sad. Especially as one of my old friends went and saw him in Melbourne. I really hope your Dad is ok xoxox

  38. You can't beat a bit of Jarvis. The OH saw him on Paddington station once, said he looked like 'a combination of incredible elegance, smoothness and a scarecrow'. What an icon!

  52. Missed this last night, was out getting my palm crossed with silver (attempting tarot reading for a friend). Sorry your dad's still in hospital, I hope he gets to come home soon, it's just horrible for everyone, even if you're confident he's being looked after properly. Everyone likes their own things around them.

    Still no sign of the ring? That's very odd, I'm guessing it's not all that dainty but a good sized knuckleduster.

    Curtise is great, glad she's started up her blog. In a weird 7 degree of separation thing, one of the dads I know from playgroup is actually named in a Pulp song, he's Jarvis' best mate (and would have been in Pulp if he'd had any musical talent whatsoever). He's the Martyn from Disco 2000 who comments on Deborah's breasts!
