red vintage 60s number

I feel very "1960s air hostess" when I wear this. A colleague suggested
I look more like a Clarins employee. Moisturiser, anyone? :)

80s does 40s

This is a lovely 80s does 40s frock I bought
from my very favourite etsy seller Dethrose Vintage.
The print is lots of little hats - too cute.
Shoes are (chewed on by my puppy) Miss L Fire.

my birthday present

Who's a lucky girl? I recieved this Karen Walker necklace
I have been fawning over for months, for my birthday on
Sunday. I'm thrilled with my colour choice, which was
a very unusual one for me. I skipped the red, overlooked the
blue and settled on this brilliant orange pansy. *sighs*
Heaven on a silver chain.

major wardrobe malfunction

My osteopath told me I wasn't allowed to drive in heels, so
I wear my driving slippers on the way to work and back again.
Please behold my driving slippers. They are both right feet.
I stood in dog poo in one red, and then one blue -
they are currently in my laundry waiting ot be cleaned.
Today, I went to put on my heels before going into work
and lo and behold, I left them at home. Not a great look!

birthday flowers

Today was my birthday. Another year older, not any wiser.
I was spoiled rotten. The top flowers are from my beloved,
the middle are from the lovely Michelle and the third ones
are from my beautiful colleague, Pammy. Thank you to my
family and friends for making it so special. :)

turning japanese - leona dress and vintage hair accessory

This is one of my fav Leonas. It is so thin and light, perfect for today's
weather which is 25 degrees. I paired it with a gorgeous hair accessory
that I scored when I bought a bulk vintage hair accessory bundle on etsy.
On my feet are my trusty Miss L Fire pumps.
