Being the useless blogger that I am my camera batteries died halfway through Damian Hirst's opening night so the only photo of me in my finery is this arty action shot. I could have posed in my frock today but after the weekend I've had the sight of me would probably give you nightmares.
This was what I did wear - a flouncy 1970s maxi dress (from the vintage fair a fortnight ago), a vintage fake fur (from a car boot sale) and some original leopard platforms (via eBay).
Here's a sneaky preview of some of Damien Hirst's work, on loan to the town for the next 12 months. Not everyone's thing but I was beside myself with excitement with finally seeing the infamous sheep in real life.
Walsall is in the running to host the 2015 Turner Prize, wish us luck.
After a couple of hours of knocking back free wine and doing the cultural thing we hot-footed it to the pub, drank more than we should have and ended up in the curry house.
What kind of an evil scout troupe organises a jumble at that time on a Saturday morning? Our local one, that's who!
Despite feeling a tad rough we scored a fair bit and thanks to yesterday's sunshine, it's all laundered, tagged and added to the pile, ready for next Saturday.
This is why I don't take many indoor outfit shots!
This was Saturday night's outfit. A '70s jumpsuit (from the divine Sarah Misfit), a beaded bag (from Thursday's boot sale), neon platforms (from a local boutique) and a Lamani gypsy coin pendant from India.
This was the outfit in action.
We had to limit the drinking as we needed to be up, on-line and with our wits about us by 9am this morning as Glastonbury 2013 tickets went on sale.
The website continually crashed and after an hour and a half of trying we were convinced that next year's Glasto wasn't going to happen. Thankfully our genius mate, Jon, managed to get a connection and snag some tickets before all 240,000 sold out in record time.
Bring on next June.
After all that excitement I'm a total wreck, I'm off to have a lie down and
a perv over watch Damian Lewis in Homeland.
See you soon!
See you soon!
