or batting for the other team?
Oh dear Ladies, I've let you down and bought not one but TWO full price high street items. You've got my address to send the hate mail to...
oops, I bought a brand new bag from Clarks. But, I totally fell in love with it, everything about it perfect, apart from the fact it isn't vintage. It's got a great Jackie O vibe.
Uh oh!! New shoes! From Office. These are my dream shoes. They're just like ones I had when I was for primary school, except mine were black. Clarks did a range called Magic Steps - here's the advert. Even a hardened Tom Boy like me wanted a pair - they had a key in a bubble in the heel.
Ok so that's it for my high street spending. Hopefully you'll forgive me, but seriously those shoes are the cat's nipples and the bag is luscious.
I was extremely lucky to recieve a parcel of happiness from the supremely talented Lucy.
She sent me this utterly stunning 60s/70s dress with pussy bow and sheer sleeves. It's bloody gorgeous - like Lucy herself and fits like a dream.
I was wearing the hat because it was snowing out there today!
She also sent...
This beautiful scarf/necklace is being modelled by Ruby. I'm going to attach my National Trust Volunteer Card to it.
Love this 80s minty green home knit jumper too!
If that wasn't enough, another blogger - the amazing Em of Ivy Black Chat sent me a parcel too.
A treasure tin of rik rak, pom poms, an undead lego lady and a pink plastic poodle.
More dye... what will I transform? Apart from my hands which I always manage to stain when dying clothes.
a 50s doll... she has neither clothes nor a name yet, poor girl, it's bitterly cold out there right now.
Thank you so much Em and Lucy!
I haven't bought much in charity shops, although my recent band has be negated by the amount I just spent on those shoes and that bag!
I wasn't looking for a liberty scarf but this one was 95p! I was however, looking for yellow nail varnish and this one was 50p - both from charity shops.
Loads of bloggers collect fantabulous psychedellic flower print bed linen, I haven't found any recently but this gorgeous Indian print cover from John Lewis caught my eye. It's probably late 80s
and erm, there's might not have many fans... apart from Em, who is my partner in granny shoe crime! I like their 40s look...
That's it for the moment. I've worked out how to upload songs to Youtube. Here's one my my most favourite songs ever. I find his voice exquiste. It's just beautiful . I took the photo too.
Have a great week
