Unfortunately I came across this fantastic haul of clothes after a sad event at work.... My boss's little puppy died unexpectedly. She was devastated of course. I tried my best to console her but luckily there were those better experienced on hand to help.
It really was heartbreaking, furbabies mean so much. I would've been just as inconsolable.
Not to be callous, but I now move on to my unplanned shopping trip. I was a bit dazed and tearful as I wandered into a charity shop, hoping for a big distraction. I was lucky....
First thing I spotted was this dress! Handmade and probably late 60s.
Then came the best thing I have found in ages... I very rarely find trousers, let alone peach polyester 1960s American ones with creases down the front...
Sorry about the shoe lace - I think they're spectacular!! The mint green top was also from the same haul.
Like a tigerrrrr, rrraaarrrgghhh!!
Your lovely compliments may have unleashed a monster - I think I look fab! This is an 80s M&S skirt
I also picked up two American skirts made buy Alfred Dunner, who it looks like, is still going
I love this skirt too, especially with the shirt Vix sent me
This skirt I'm least sure about, I think it needs taking up, which is what I'm demonstrating in the second photo!!
It took me a while to feel normal again - hormones did NOT help. But what did was SPARTACUS VENGEANCE - I've seen the first series and the sequel. Was also saddened by the death of Andy Whitfield. It's a great series - the tits and bums and front bits, the graphic sex and violence, over use of the words "COCK" and "PURPOSE", all that swearing, all that sex, the idiosyncratic dialogue and the slo-mo, so much slo-mo - have I convinced you to watch it yet?
I have a girl crush on Lucy Lawless
I'm not such a bit fan of the boys - though I do rather fancy Craig Parker and Manu Bennett, though the latter does seem to have his mouth open all the time.
This programme is fantastic therapy! Though I badly miss John Hannah in it.
Have a great Easter/Holiday!
I can't believe none of the channels I get are showing this film!!! BASTARDS!
*****************I amended this blog entry as I was not happy with the shift from tragedy to me leaping around in polyester, I hope this version is more respectful but also more lighthearted. Damn emotions getting in the way of decent blogging!***********************************
