Bloody internet! Our connection has been on the blink for the past week and an engineer can't get out to us before Thursday, bang goes any catch-up TV, eBay bidding or an involved blog post. As it's just about working this morning I thought I'd go old skool and share some of the outfits I've worn over the past few days before we spend the afternoon drinking cut price ale in 'Spoons.
On Friday I unveiled my freshly pimped-up denim jacket, enhanced with the batik panel I made in last Tuesday's workshop. As I don't do cardis (although I did snaffle a not-too-shoddy £395 Miu Miu silk & cashmere cardi from a chazza for £1 on Thursday) my 50p cropped denim jacket is great for popping on over a sleeveless maxi when it's not quite warm enough to go completely bare-armed.

On Saturday I wore trousers to pack the van ready for Stockport. I don't own jeans (they just don't make me feel fabulous enough) but bastard massive canary yellow 1970s flares, that's a different matter entirely. The neighbourhood tom, Bentley, approved.
|Dollyrockers maxi (Second To None, 2009), Huge sleeved velvet jacket (Liebchen Vintage), Biba dragonfly choker (My Mum's), Panda of London hat (Birmingham Settlement charity shop)|
For Sunday trading I wore Dollyrockers, velvet and a crazy hat from my collection. Vintage Village is held in Stockport's Victorian covered market hall and it's blinking freezing. The outfit got lots of love from the Northern vintage lovers but I wished I'd worn thermals.
|1970s maxi (£10) worn with a vintage felt hat (Cancer UK charity shop, 2014), Lamani coin belt worn as a pendant (India) and 1960s leather & suede Victorian lace-up boots (Car boot sale)|
Today's outfit is a cotton maxi with a handkerchief hem bought from Ripe Vintage, fellow Stockport traders. I'm not sure if the clientele at Wetherspoons will appreciate me wearing a new-to-me frock to join them for a cheeky afternoon drinking session but it makes me feel good.
Normal service will be resumed shortly, I hope.
See you soon!
