As soon as the nights start drawing in I like to ramp up the bling to counteract the gloom.
I was pleased to win this 1970s lurex maxi for £1.20 on eBay earlier this week and even more excited when arrived just in time to wear it to the pub last night.

Isn't the print on Liz's vintage dress fab?

Here's the boys, resplendent in their vintage shirts.
I haven't shared our curry with you for ages. Here's last nights' Rezalla Garlic vegetables and Jaipuri-style vegetables, with chips on the side, naturally.
Lurex is not only sparkly but it's also really warm and perfect when you're walking back home late at night.
It was freezing at chucking out time last night.
Despite the epic amount of booze I knocked back on Friday night I was up, dressed and in the jumble sale queue by 9.30am yesterday. Amongst other things I snaffled a large piece of 1960s lurex threaded crimplene for 10p.
The fabulous Kitty sent me this 1967 Simplicity pattern a while ago and as I was up early this morning I decided to get cracking on this dress.
I wasn't keen on the original length, mid-thigh is far more me.

I didn't take my camera out with me on Friday but you're welcome to join us ladies next time, the more the merrier.
I'm off to catch up on all I've missed in blogland while Jon makes pizza.
Hope you've had a brilliant weekend.
See you soon.
