Please remain in your seats...

This is the 1970s Eastex skirtsuit eagled eyed Vix found for me! I promised an air hostess photo shoot, this is all I could come up with with failing technology and failing light!
Hat and gloves - charity shop
Scarf - present from Vix
Shoes - Sainsburys

Just before I went on holiday, I got this lovely birthday package from Melanie

Not sure how my dogs will fare with the IQ test! Bag dedicated to our favourite depiction of my favourite monarch (sexy), a lovely teddy card from Melanie next to my leaving card from the only person I'm sad about leaving at my second job and finally Simon Le Bon looking like he's making the following noise (see 2:50 of this clip)

I love it all, thank you!!

Here's some things I bought recently that I've not fit into my blog
 Indian Buddha head £2.99, worried dog to match other worried doh 59p, Dior tights 49p, all from Oxfam. Naughty Tomato flavour Kurkure snacks from Walsall.

In Walsall I bought

School boater £3.50 charity shop
Badges - made by me!
Stratton Compact and No.7 powder -  £5 from Second to None
Peachy Pink net gloves - Second to None

I also picked up this paisley Liberty print dress from Second To None, I managed to take it in and add some embellishments. Without through the sewing machine down the garden, though I was tempted....

Here's a close up


I also bought these boots on ebay and added the lace


Last week I finished one of my two jobs. It was too far with too much office bullshit for me to bother with any more. I have at least 20 projects, plus learning to drive and ebay selling to keep me going. I really can't wait. I need to do more art and I've been very inspired by our very own Edie Pop

as well as our very own RRRIOT GRRRRL Melanie
Put your video on youtube Melanie!

I can't wait to get on with the following

Badge making,
crafting,
collaging,
sculpture
painting
dressmaking
soup making

and more

and you know I will do it all. I really will. I can't wait to get going.

You are beyond fabulous, I love that stewardess look, I think a total career change beckons!!! Your finds and pimped up boots are ace and the re-fashion on the liberty frock is brilliant! Gary Oldman is such a babe, loved him since I first saw him in Sid and Nancy and even fancied him as George Smiley! xxxxxx

Lucy Nation said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

I AM LOVING THE HOSTIE LOOK. The exits are located at the front, and the rear, of the craft.

What a fun life you lead!

Melanie said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

Oh, I am excited by all the projects you are diving into! Those are awesome badges, and a great job on the dress alterations. I went to Edie Pop's place and love her world! I signed on immediately. Hugs about your riot girl remark!! I shall post on YouTube but I have to figure it out first. Your flight attendant look is brilliant. I love how they instruct you to put your own face mask on first and then decide if you want to put one on your child... Who wrote that script, hm? I also loved your baby blue outfit on the meetup with the gang. Gorgeous!

You look fabulous as an air hostess with the mostest, Clare! The suit fits you so well, and I love the hat and gloves.
You scored well, all the chazza and Second to None goodies are great. You did a good job on the Liberty print frock, it looks like it fits perfectly now.
Looking forward to hearing/seeing the results of all your plans, now the hideous job is no more... As the card says, you lucky fucker! I knew you wanted to do more art, of course, but I can't WAIT to see your sculpture! And homemade soup is always a Good Thing. xxxxx

Dearest Clare,
Wow, lovely pictures of you with different costume and dress and others(*^_^*)
Please try not to make yourself too busy; haha, "no" enjoy your life, my lovely English girl♡♡♡
Sending you lots of love and hugs from Japan, xoxo Miyako*

Ivy Black said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

Yer bloody gorgeous you are and you put a massive smile on my gob which I need before trolling off to work, I can tell you!
That's a lovely suit...well spotted Vix I say, it's bang on for you and I adore the Liberty frock.
It's that time of year to get busy I reckon..can't wait to see what you make. Ila's work makes me want to weep and she does get me all inspired. Love her.
And if that's not enough...you leave us with Gary Oldman. Nuff said!
xxxxx

You look ridiculously amazing in that suit. I love the hat, gloves and scarf you added. Your boater is fantastic.

Kitty said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

Ooh hostesst with the mostest, bring it awwwnn!!! Gorgeous cute pics!! Hope you move onto your projects soon, I can't wait to see what you make.xx.

CityScape Skybaby said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

Love the gratuitous Gary Oldman shot and hearing about all your projects you've got planned Clare. Makes me feel excited to do stuff myself though at the moment it's taking me all my time just to keep up with Blogger and read a few books here and there! You make a very glam air hostess, very "Catch Me if You Can". And that Charles the Second book title does make me laugh. xx

Misfits Vintage said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

I've come back for another look at you playing Flight Attendant! Yep, still fabulous. Sarah xxx

Miss Magpie said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

Oh No! I don't believe it! I just gave a boater to one of my local charity shops, I have a huge head (to hold my genius brain) so it didn't fit me, hat's rarely do. BOLLOCKS I could have sent it to you :(

Lisa G said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

You look fab as an air hostess!! Possible that you missed your calling in life if it wasn't for the fact I know you'd hate dealing with some of the idiots who go on planes!!! :)

Melanie said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

I'm glad you liked your gifts, I'm just sorry I didn't get them to you on time, I was waiting on the Charles II bag to be delivered.
You look very nifty in your suit, it looks like it was made for you xxx

Marisa Noelle said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

Oh all those hats and that liberty print dress!! You score the most beautiful stuff you lucky lady and of course it all looks amazing on you! That dog iq book looks hilarious. Is it for real? I would love to see how my parent's dogs fare on that..haha. Have a fun time all the crafting and soup making. I have been doing much of the same thing :) xo Marisa

Vintage Coconut said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

Well HELL FREAKIN LO Clare!
You look stunning in your new outfit, I am in love with it.
I am also glad you got worried dog a friend. *hehehe*
The compact is fabulous.

Rose&Bird said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

Great suit, what a fab colour on you! Lovely gifts and great finds. Wonder what the dogs are worried about?!

Wendy said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

What a super Air hostess you make! I think if all flight crew were as fabulous as you I would certainly get over my fear of flying!!
Your finds are amazing as always and I love, love, love that liberty print dress and your embellishments are perfect! I am also ridiculously excited to see what you get up to in your extra free time, your to do list sounds like the most wonderful and productive way to while away the hours!!!xxxx

Joni said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

Gary Oldman is a sexy one, isn't he? Have you seen him in Dracula with Keanu Reeves?
That suit is so perrrrrrrrrfect! Great creative photos of you too!

Penelope Cat said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

Gorgeous suit and in such a lovely colour. It really suits you (oops, pun not intended) and you look fab. Great finds too - the boater is my fave I think and I love the Liberty print dress - such a delicate pattern and colourway.

Congrats on leaving a sucky job too - I'm excited to see the results of your new ventures.

My poor husband went off on an 11 hour flight yesterday, I'd have felt a lot better about it if a professional like you had been there to point out the exits! What a fab suit, well modelled.

So, this is exciting, is this another job down or am I getting confused? I know you left one. Are you a full time lady of ART now? I want to be a full time writer but don't even have a bloody desk! Projects are a good thing, I have embraced crochet again recently but have only succeeded in turning my hands into gnarled claws so far.

AND happy belated birthday! When was it? I am crap and must start a spreadsheet or something!

Vintage Bird Girl said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

I love the liberty print dress.....so pretty! And the air hostess pics are FAB! The suit looks gorgeous on you. So funny that I found one of those worried dogs a while back too, wee worried dogs on opposite sides of the world! Xx

Krista said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates
