I am behind in blogging and reading due to a cold. An annoying cold.
Bright colours certainly compensate for not feeling 100%.
Purple skirt - was once an evening dress - from Toffs, with teeshirt and cardigan both from Hospice Shop. Shoes, watch and liquorice allsorts earrings all retail.
Earlier in the week I wore the same colour combination - purple and turquoise:
The dress is much much more purple in real life. I pounced on it in the St V de P Shop, because I don't have a plain purple dress. The nuclear free belt was a gift from my dear op-shopping buddy Tanya, the bracelets are a mix of thrift and KMART. Like many dresses of its era, it has an elastic waist which was tiny. I used my quick-unpick to undo some of the elastic and then carefully cut, allowing for several extra inches in the waist. Fortunately because the skirt is pleated this was a very satisfactory arrangement.
My cold is now mostly gone, except for an annoying cough. As it happens, I have been dosing myself with lots of vitamin C by drinking the cordial I made from a large portion of the blackcurrants I harvested in the summer. Purple definitely has therapeutic qualities.
Hope you are all well and having a great weekend,
bye for now, Penny-Rose :-)
