Dear Readers, hope you are all having a good week. Hello to my new followers and thanks to those who have friended me on Facebook. I have three outfits to show you today.
First up today Thursday: I want to show you a home-made polyester dress. The floral pattern is in some unusual colours - some brown and also some grey and peach. Its a pull-over-your-head kind of dress with a reasonably wide neckline and massive pointed collar.

Belt and cardigan both thrifted - Recycle Boutique I think
Bone vintage necklace, Trademe
Flower bling brooch, gift
Selection of plastic bangles, some old some new, all 2nd hand for less than $2 each!
Wednesday I bit the bullet and wore a dress which I have not worn to work before. I was expecting a couple of comments about the massive collar and the pussy bow, but either my colleagues were blind or mute, or both.

This Eastex dress started life as a maxi dress (right) and armed with scissors I cut it down to a knee length and also cut off the tight cuffs from the too short sleeves.
My last outfit is from yesterday, Wednesday. It was not quite as successful as the two dresses because it was not so comfortable. The vintage velvet skirt called out to me from the $2 rack at Toffs and the moment I touched the fabric I knew I wanted it.
