Here's Friday's frock, a gold lurex number I found at a car boot sale complete with flesh-coloured slip for modesty. The dealer thought it may have originally been a hippy chick's wedding dress but sadly the original owner was no longer around to tell the tale. I had planned to wear it to Glasto but it's always been either too hot or too wet for wool so rather than let it hang unloved in my wardrobe I wore it to run some errands in town earlier.
It certainly enjoyed it's mundane outing, elderly ladies stroked it and admired the artistry and a sprightly pensioner cheekily asked me to join him for a coffee.
Favourite thing on a Friday? This solid copper Native American pendant one of my late mum's suitors bought back from the States in the early 1960s. Little did she know her first born would be a Sagittarian with turquoise as her birthstone.
What else am I loving on a Friday? The fab post the gorgeous Strawberry Freckleface honoured me with yesterday. What a thrill. Thanks to my new followers, I'll be checking you guys out over the weekend.
That copper cuff on the left was another gift from the same admirer. The tortoiseshell Lucite ring was a gift from Dee and the brass bangle with blue flowers was from Sandy. The nail polish is, as always, Barry M.
These discrete earrings were 25p from a car boot sale.

Have a fantastic weekend, my lovelies. I'm off to the pub in a bit, what shall I wear?
