How was your weekend?
Hope you all had a good one.
I did some Christmas shopping, and met Santa.
And the girls were inspired by Neil Armstrong!
Littlest is quite the Space Cadet.
Today, I have taken inspiration from the very last of the fuchsia hanging on in the garden against the wind and the cold.
Love these colours!
1970s maxi dress - gift from Rock Goddess Helga
Boots - community fair
Cardigan - retail, at least 5 years old
Cape - flea market
Bangles, necklace - charity shopped.
Flowers pins - retail (sale)
I went to a little secondhand/vintage sale on Sunday, rather more in hope than expectation, but it proved to be great. I did some more gift shopping (for the vintage lovers on my list) and found some beautiful dresses.
The 1970s panne velvet maxi dress with the awesome angel sleeves is probably a keeper. I wish I could fit into the Kati at Laura Phillips floral/crochet number, but sadly it is too small, so to Ebay she must go. Same goes for the amazing purple high neck maxi.
The delightful woman I bought these from was selling all sorts of wonderful 1960-70s clothes which had all been her mother's. She remembered her mum wearing them, the Kati dress had been worn to several family weddings.
And this was only half of the stuff her mother had kept, which now has to be disposed of.
I will keep my eyes peeled for her next sale, and take more cash!
I'm chilly today, these cape sleeves are all well and good but they don't keep the wind out.
