I cracked on with some Christmas shopping at the weekend, as there were two craft and vintage fairs to go to, and presents to buy!
Naturally I found a little something for myself in the process...
I'm looking rather ladylike again.
If you knew me, you'd realise this is not much of a reflection of my personality. I might like frocks, but I wouldn't consider myself ladylike in the slightest!
I struggled with the light conditions taking these photos, and since I have neither the money to invest in a better camera, nor the wit or the time to read the instructions for the one I've got, this is the best I could manage.
The lovely colours on this Liberty print skirt have been bleached out, but you get the idea.
That's a bit better.
Do you see an Edwardian lady (called Fanny, obviously) waiting to indulge in an unseemly assignation with an unsuitable beau?
Just me then...
Velvet jacket, 1970s Liberty print gypsy skirt, knit top, petticoat, tights and bangles - charity shopped
1980s boots - Second to None
1970s felt hat and 1960s tapestry/vinyl bag - flea markets
1960s scarf - friend's stall at school fair (it was her late mum's)
Belt - gift from PTA Queen Lucy
You know I said in my last post that I didn't need any more coats?
I really don't.
But I spotted this one...
...and fell a little in love.
The brand name might sound like a range of tampons, but I don't care - look at the 1970s red-checked original-belted gorgeousness! And the vinyl belt has little hinges!
I think I may have to sell the 1960s Eastex coat I bought last week... just to appease my conscience, and the Thrifting Gods.
I wore it to the vintage fairs. It's nice enough.
But I like Feminella more.
What would you do?
Am I the only person who finds it hard to chose between her vintage finery?
