Even though the weather is still iffy and
I've not put my woolly tights away yet, the frocks
are getting more flowery by the minute.
This one came from the charity shop, it still had its retail shop
label on. Its beautifully made and has a sticky out petticoat underneath.
Would you believe I paid £4.50 for it.
The brooch came from Ruth Hogan, author of
THE KEEPER OF LOST THINGS. She found it on a car park
and knew I would wear it.
I'm not just saying this but Ruth's first novel has been my best read
so far this year and I'm hoping they make it into a film.
I wore the jacket (£8 and a favourite of mine)
with this snazzy retro skirt I've had a while, teamed up with my white jumper
from friend Vix of Kinky Melon Retro Boutique
The scarf is from an Instagram friend who I sent a brooch to and the mermaid
brooch is by textile artist Lainey Whitworth. I love the quirkiness of her pieces.
This gorgeous curtain fabric skirt with it handstitching
came from another Instagram friend who was having a destash.
I've added charity shop Laura Ashley velvet jacket, old Boden lace top,
Clarks brogues and some very loud coloured tights
My lovely friend Tracy who lives between the UK and Ghana
brought me this gorgeous basket on her recent trip home.
This is smaller than my other one which is on the floor next to my seat in the
living room and has books, knitting, magazines and a few toffee wrappers in it.
Internet friends are the best
and I have some lovely ones
