Cityscape Skybaby asked what I'd made from the groovy black and white faces fabric, the remainder of which features in our new spare bedroom curtain.
I haven't worn this home-made maxi (made up using a 1969 Butterick pattern) for ages so as today saw a welcome return to blazing sunshine out of the wardrobe it came, ready for a quick sprint into town to get some last minute festival supplies.
I must make myself another dress using this pattern, I love the low-cut back.
These 1960s Polaroid sunglasses (along with their original case) were bought from yesterday's car boot sale. We managed to get round the entire field before the torrential rain started so I got my second-hand shopping fix for the week.
As I picked them up from the seller's stall she asked if I was into vintage, which instantly made my heart sink, expecting her to come out with a delusional asking price. How wrong I was, she asked if 50p was too much.
Original 1970s suede platforms (£9.99, eBay), Leather Gladstone bag (20p, Jumble sale)
|Dragon ring (from Krista), Hindi script cuff (from Helga)|
See that sequinned white leather cuff on my left wrist? It's by Jade Jagger and bought back in the last century (1998) when I obviously had more money than sense. It cost £25 (from a Paul Smith outlet at a discount village) so it probably cost more than anything else I own.

The sun's shining, there's rum chilling in the fridge, there's a festival on the horizon and I'm happy.
See you soon!
