Frock on Friday & a Swinging Swap!

Aaaah hello Friday my only day off this week. Not much excitement for me over the last few days, but I'm making the most of today. Long overdue haircut this morning, followed by my afternoon bootfair (not a sausage) and a lovely stroll along the windy beach this afternoon with Barney dog. This evening I may be partaking in a few glasses of vino with some lovely ladies.....


70's maxi from ebay about 5 years ago & I'm rather ashamed to say it's the first time I've worn it! My old faithful gold jewelled vintage sandals, purple checkerboard bag from last week's bootfair (50p!).




Oh yes and do you spy the most awesome of pendants? You may have seen this on the divine Vix's blog last friday... Vix had commented on a post of mine admiring some vintage curlers I'd picked up & when I saw this owl magnifying glass pendant on hers I cheekily suggested a swap which to my delight she agreed to! I mean have you seen how short my hair is? Rollers, really? I was thrilled to find a parcel waiting for me the other day along with a super cool & sweet card. Love you Vix!



Of course Barney couldn't resist sneaky into a pic too!

You must wear that dress more often, it is sexay. The owl pendant was a great swap xx

I love that you wore a vino-colored gown to drink vino. Very pragmatic! It looks great on you. I want to stroll by the sea.

You are wearing the most flippin' gorgeous outfit here!! What a great idea doing a swap with Vix Baby - I thought I'd seen that pendant before and doesn't she look cute with her rollers in? The dress is fantasmagorical and you absolutely must wear it more often - the colour is you and how about those sleeves? As for the bag ***drooling*** xoxo
