Knitted skirt suit and jacket (Jumble sale), Samba platforms (TopShop), Scarf and Sunglasses (Charity shop), Earrings (Mum's jewellery stash)
Well, yesterday's jumble sale certainly came up trumps! The lady in charge has taken a real shine to us and held back a bundle of hand-made skirt suits found in the loft of a wool shop that closed down back in the late 1970's.
There's a certain granny-feel about these crazy acid bright creations but with the right accessories I quite like the vibe. Each suit set me back 70p and the immaculate vintage faux fur coat was 40p.
What do you think of my new sunglasses?
They're vintage Ted Lapidus and I spotted the white pair in a local charity shop this morning priced at £3.95. After I snaffled them the manager mentioned he had a second pair in the back and that I might as well have them for free as they were "a bit mad". Apparently they're Nicole Ritchie's glasses of choice and the replicas retail at £140.
Possibly the most beautiful shoes I own, bought with vouchers so technically free.
Happy Friday, readers! Special big love to my dear friends, Jem and Helga, fellow fearless dressers and vintage fashion fanatics. If you haven't checked out their blogs yet why the heck not?
