Where do I start? Since I last posted I've been to two more car boot sales (both buying and selling) and a raucous lunch-time jumble sale and sewn some bed cover couture. The house looks like a charity shop sorting depot, the mending pile is almost as tall as I am and the washing machine has barely stopped since Thursday. I could show you our finds, share some of the incredible new-to-me vintage dressmaking patterns I'm itching to get started on or reveal Jon's latest DIY project but sod that, we went out last night and that's such a rare event these days (vintage fairs play havoc with the social life) it's got to be shared.
Liz invited us round to theirs for a Mexican dinner so I just had to dress accordingly. Forget boring old age appropriate, I'm food appropriate!
I borrowed this insane vintage Flamenco maxi skirt from the Kinky Melon stockroom. The crazy 1980s ruffled crop top was bought for £3 on a blogging day out HERE.
The rose crown was handmade by Desiree a couple of years ago and the vintage Austrian belt was a pressie from Helga.
Bangles - all second-hand. The wooden bird one was from an amazing charity shop which raises funds for stray cats and dogs in Goa (details HERE). Tamera made me the Frida pendant and the feather earrings were 99p from the Walsall branch of Topshop's closing down sale 4 years ago.
Baked Nachos and jalapeño bread for starters.

Spicy corn kernels
My vegetarian fajitas were gorgeous. Wetherspoons' Mexican Monday pales into insignificance.

Despite knocking back the best part of two bottles of wine I'm feeling fine. Better crack on with the mending pile after I've caught up with my blog reading. Next weekend is a back-to-back vintage fair extravaganza and those rails need to be full!
See you soon.
