First up today: the red dress and denim waistcoat ensemble below top right.. My first outfit felt okay but when I saw the photos I knew it was destined for the bag which resides in the bottom of the wardrobe (ie to be sold online or at a fair). The dress is an Osti from Toffs, but it's not the traditional shirt style which I love. It's too big for me and I know from wearing it previously a belt makes it look like a sack tied in the middle.

Now for a mashup of Frock up on Friday and Saturday. Friday I wore pink - Osti shirtdress and boots both thrifted. Saturday I wore the purple gingham check polyester house coat (collar visible under my sock bun below) but it was too cold for any decent photos.
Today was my last day of my holiday (from work) and I had the house to myself to do some hand sewing and reading. I popped into town to collect my Husky sewing machine as it has been serviced. It seemed criminal to not go to the big Salvation Army Store and Toffs. There were some hideous / fabulous ornaments at the Sally Army and I took photos on my phone - I am saving those for a future post. The $2 dress rack at Toffs has been almost empty the last few times I have visited but today it was practically bowing to the ground - tried on four dresses and bought two, both fabulous homemade polyester maxi frocks (from the 1970s perhaps) and a perfectly functional blue and white pinstripe shirt.
I am not wild about either of the outfits I wore today but never mind - I dressed for comfort and warmth. I confess that in the past I have tended not to post when I wear outfits I don't like and/or photos of outfits I don't like!
Hope your week has got off to a good start!
