A couple of weeks ago, I won the most beautiful late fifties / early sixties cotton dress on eBay. For the absolute bargain of £15 (I bid with just three seconds to spare – what can I say? I live life on the edge…..), I found myself the proud owner of a dress that actually gives me a bit of a feminine shape. I’ve always been quite ‘pencil’ like – no curves whatsoever – but whilst I’m wearing this dress, I seem to have a waist, a bottom and some hips. Like an actual girl!
I’m thinking in the winter, it will look great with some thick opaques, ankle boots and my favourite vintage mustard coat (with the huge fur collar), and, if I’ve got the balls, my faux fur hat that I bought last year. I’ve yet to wear this yet because firstly, I’m a total chicken and secondly, it’s a teeny bit small for my head. Although it perches nicely on top, there’s a real risk that it might come flying off in an errant breeze – leaving me with hat hair and a freezing head. I do love it though! (Man up, Vicky!)
At the moment though, it’s still far too warm to be thinking about giant coats, so for now I’m sticking it on with the leather jacket I studded myself, some chunky ankle boots and great big flicks of eyeliner.
