Pre-Christmas celebrations

Last night i had my “pre christmas” celebrations with some of my favourite ladies in the land.
We went out for dinner and cocktails, photos stolen from my dearest love Louisa and her snazzy new Iphone 5- I was very jel.

The 6 of us who went out for din dins


Me, Stef and Ellie

Nikki, Caro and Louisa (How alarmingly gorgeous do these three look!- Caro has such enviably
shiny hair)

This is my outfit from the evening. I absolutely adore this dress that I recently had repaired by the wonderful Nana of splendid stitches. The dress is a late 50s number by Judy Clare London. It really is amazing, as the way it pulls you in makes your waist look IMPOSSIBLY tiny. Love It! My shoes are an ancient pair from Faith, i stupidly gave my Mum my new black shoes to take down to Hampshire with her, leaving me with only my anciently old pair!


I did have a bit of a fiddle round with the pics last night, this is what happens when you are suffering with insomnia at 4 in the morning and need a distraction!

Lots of shiny, red, gold and green things!

This week I’m  talking about the dreaded C word. It is a word I can’t deal with (at all). The word? Christmas.
So why am I talking about CHRISTMAS when November hasn’t even hit yet? Partially because there is nothing worse than that awful disorganised feeling in those last few weeks running up to Christmas when you start to think to yourself, I’VE GOT NOTHING TO WEAR FOR CHRISTMAS.
That’s why my Christmas suitable listing are starting early, lots of glitzy frocks and Christmas suitable presents. Over the next couple of weeks there will be many glitzy handbags to come from my mum’s collection and mine.

This little bag came from my collection. Needs a little bit of work on the Lucite to get it back to its absolute best, but a very sweet bag nonetheless. Bid for it here

This one is an original 50s deadstock handbag, it is in almost perfect condition, and has one of the best EVER clasps to it. Bid for it here.

This is one of the most superbly perfect wiggle dresses EVER. Made by John Selby from a deep red brocade. A definite mad-men esque number. Bid for it here.

This little jacket would be an excellent cover up with any vintage dress. I think this dates to the 30s. Made from amazing brocade fabric. Bid for it here.

This little dress is from the 80s but its design is pure 50s in style. Bid for it here.

If you are feeling supa dupa generous (and want to buy someone an extra special christmas pres bob) I also have two FAB-U-LOUS vintage 70s Louis Vuitton suitcases listed too. They have fabulous provenance which is detailed in the listings. Bid for the smaller one hereand the larger one here
Or, if you are like me and wear summer clothes all year round (chuck on a cardigan and tights and I’ll just wear the exact same clothes I was wearing in July). Bid for it here.
