New Vintage Lovely

Thought I would quickly blog/brag about my new 60,s silk vintage skirt. I traded this in one of the new Vintage dress shops in town.(Purfect Vintage) I had a beautiful floral 60's tailored dress, which was never, ever going to fit me. It was very small in the bottom half and It did'nt matter how much weight I could loose for the dress, as I would never fill the ample room in the bust! So rather than keep the dress just to look nice in my wardrobe, It made more sense to swap it for something that I would actually wear and hope that the dress would be actually worn rather than a beautiful object to look at!

I love the skirt and wore it to work yesterday, hence I am not at my best in the morning!

I will post my other new vintage acquisition, which will get all lovers of 40's & 50's fashion drooling!

A Summer Boy

That broody feeling has happened again. So I could'nt hold back any longer, after all I have curbed the high street shops (pat on back). Although there seems to be a rapid increase in vintage clothing shops in the nearby town, perhaps I will show you my new bargain vintage pieces another time. I think there must be 4 new vintage clothing shops just opened in the town!

Anyhow , my favourite indulgences are No1. art shops :the one in town is like an Aladdin's cave. No2. shoe shops. No3. The bakers!! (I live near to 2 which I declare are the best in the South East! and No.4 has to be Pet shops / animal sanctuary's.

So here is the new baby, a little dwarf Netherlands boy, who has yet to be named. He is 9 weeks old and super cute.

Please leave any "nice" names if you so wish. (Stewart is a no-no!)
