Fur goodness sakes
Hi everyone, hope you have all been having a good week. Thank you all for the lovely comments on my last post, they were much appreciated while I was recovering from the disgusting head cold. However since then, I lost my blogging mojo a bit , so there was no Frock on Friday post from me last week. To offer some kind of compensation I am going show you two FOF and a few things from this week.
I have been yearning for a pair of those plastic booties with bows for ages. So I bought a pair and I did not get struck down by lightning or anything (breaking my "buy nothing new" pledge):
Orange paisley vintage dress - refashioned by me - with a thrifted Atmosphere cardigan, vintage necklace and bracelets. The cream choker necklace was a lucky find at Paperbag Princess (previously Recycle Boutique) closing down sale - it was $2.
This week I have taken a few photos - yeah, all in the same place in front of the back door with the key rack just sticking out of my head, or near enough!
Left: Osti dress with Glengyle cardigan, $2 each from Toffs.
Middle: Vintage velvet skirt, $2 Toffs with a black long sleeve top $2 from Hospice and a $1 waistcoat from Trademe.
Right: Red skirt Hospice shop $4, frilly shirt Savemart $8, vintage Glengyle cardigan from the St Vinnies.
Here's some close-ups of the jewellery:
The purple necklaces are both vintage and the red necklace and earrings are both retail purchases. The earrings are made by a local artist.
Today, was un-furgettable. I wore my treasured Cordera coat. The label says "wraps you in luxury" and I sure felt special wearing it.
The coat belonged to my Husband's godmother and Aunty and I felt very special when I was given it. I am wearing it with a vintage Osti dress, another Toffs $2 bargain and the grey Glengyle cardigan. The necklace is one of those rainbow crystal ones, stamped made in Germany I think, which I found at the Hospice Shop.
I had about 2 inches chopped off my hair earlier in the week and I think its looking a lot tidier!
The weekend looks like it will be busy with a trade union meeting, washing and other domestic stuff. Hope you all have a good one,
