Although I have a massive penchant for second hand furniture, I adore foraging through racks of clothing to find something simply amazing. I just don’t like someone else having what I have or it may be the memories of my mother spending a small fortune on a silk number for an event when I was younger only to be collected by another couple with (gasp!!) my mother’s friend wearing the same outfit in a different colour! While the meter ticked in the taxi, Mum zipped back inside and changed – what else was she to do?
I'm letting go of some of my collectable pieces in the hope that they will find a home which offers black tie balls and elegant formal dinners. Where have they gone anyways?
This gown is the prettiest shade of midnight blue. It's severely elegant - the back goes down into a V which is jewelled like the front. Never worn by me. By who? i do not know. The flutter sleeve is so lovely.
It seems i like the razzle dazzle. Belts, earrings. I so rarely wear pierced earrings anymore. I love a good clip on. For my mother's 60th birthday i took her to have her ears pierced. She was so tired of not being able to buy all the nice pierced earrings but had been a complete scaredy cat to go through with having her earlobe shot. It really is barbaric.
She refuses to allow another clip near her. So i now have all her 70's,80's earrings. Jadore them! ... but have too many so this along with other frocks seek a new owner.
