24 Hour Party Person




I've spent the last 48 hours inebriated which explains why I'm looking as rough as a badger's nether regions in these photos.



From eating my body weight in Thai, Indian and Italian cuisine, mixing red, white & rose wine, Singha lager, sloe gin and India Pale Ale to skirmishing with demented grannies at jumble sales and lusting over artisan jewellery at a craft fair, taking delivery of some of the most amazing parcels from across the globe from glorious bloggers to re-acquainting myself with my favourite Mad-chester film (24 Hour Party People) I've done it all this weekend.



This is how I was dressed earlier but after getting halfway to the pub the front of my boot decided to detach itself and I had to hop back home in the pouring rain to change my footwear.



This parcel jam-packed with Florida sunshine arrived yesterday from the wonderful Ofelia. These fantastically colourful clothes will be perfect when I finally get to Goa. I just had to wear the Andy Warhol printed skirt today which attracted a fair bit of attention from the security guard in Lidl who insisted on following me round the shop. I can only assume he was a connoisseur of pop art.


Isn't the print fabulous?


I snaffled this 1970s leather patchwork bag from yesterday's jumble sale for a measly 10p.

Andy Warhol print mini and patchwork bag worn with a 1960s red leather jerkin (£10.16, eBay), Dolcis suede platforms (£4.99, PDSA), 1980s jersey bodysuit (99p, Age Concern) , 1960s wool beret (50p, Salvation Army)
Just time to catch up on some blog reading before I crack open the next bottle of wine (well, it is almost my birthday).

Hope you've had an excellent weekend.

See you soon.

    'Badgers's nether regions' - please do not say such things ;-), I have a terribly vivid imagination and the images in my mind were not pretty. Nevertheless, you look nothing like these images! I don't think you could look rough!

The print is to die for and I love the green in it, with those boots(ah dam the broken boot and rain, I'm shedding a tear because those boots are so gorgeous, can they be saved?) The purse is killer and looks perfect with your jerkin.

    Cheers to Vix ...it's almost your BURFDAY!!! It makes me smile seeing you woop it up and slurping it down :) Big Birthday kisses and super hard squeezes!
    PARTAY BABY!!!
    Loveyou~
