|Yesterday's Outfit: Floaty 1970s polyester maxi (courtesy of the divine Helga), Tod's turquoise python boots (Car boot sale, 2010), Turquoise net bag (handmade by Liz), bastard massive pendant (bought from a Lamani gypsy on the roadside in Goa)|
As we'd spent most of the Easter bank holiday working, our weekend started on Tuesday evening, better late than never.
|Tuesday's outfit: 1960s Jean Varon maxi dress (Acorns Hospice, 2011), poodle clutch (Handmade by Liz)|
We celebrated our unni-versary with dinner at the fabulously swanky Five Rivers in Walsall. Taffeta and sequins on a week night? Why the hell not?!
|Tandoori phool and paneer shaslick starters, Lasani chilli chicken for Jon and Bhindi dupiaza for me|
We even took in some culture at the New Art Gallery, too. The Jochem Hendricks exhibit blew my mind. Pack is a group of former fighting dogs rendered harmless by taxidermy. Are they real ? They looked it but I was reluctant to touch them to find out. Can we trust what the artist and gallery claim?
Flask of Tears is two containers of tears bought by the artist from a Soviet institution. Hendricks claims to have tasted them and that they are salty, but we believe him? Room In A Sack is rumoured to be the entire contents of a room - bed, ashtray, coffee machine, bedding, a library of books - shredded and put into a bag. Really? Our art gallery never fails to amaze.
We're just back from an epic shopping trip and I'm itching to tip this lot up and reacquaint myself with what we've bought. There's all manner of fabulousness in these bags including feathers, velvet, satin and lurex - whoever thinks charity shops are full of over-washed supermarket tee shirts and last year's Primarni seriously need to reconsider their hunting ground.
I'll share this week's finds shortly, right now I need to defrost!
See you soon.
|Today's ensemble: Duke Sportswear of London, 1970s poncho (St Giles Hospice), another frock of fabulosity from Helga, 1960s Lime green nylon gloves (found in a jumble sale handbag), feather earrings (Topshop sale, 2010)|
See you soon.
