Can you get girlier? It’s pink, silky and has girls printed all over it! Ok, it’s not frilly – but I already get IDed often enough without being mistaken for a 6 year old…
Incidentally, this was in fact bought second hand. I wanted it from the Aspire website, but it was sold out. This one was bought on ebay from a lady who found it didn’t fit right… I feel that fate sent me this dress!
Moving on: I’ve not forgotten you, honestly, just find myself quite busy a lot of the time at present. Monday, for example, I’m suddenly off down to London for a training day on last minute discount. I won’t even be leaving St Pancras until 5pm, so have no idea what time I’ll be home, by the time I’ve crossed London, got a train out of Marylebone… I’ll do my best to write a blog post, but no promises!
Oh, just a couple of lovely things this weekend. I actually wore my new maxi dress round to Dapper Chap’s last night, but didn’t manage to snap a picture before I left, so will get one next time for you. I walked down to the station, and while I was attempting to coax money from the broken cash machine, a lady came running in. She came straight up to me and said:
“I hope you don’t mind me saying this, but I just had to come in after you. We just passed you walking down the road and couldn’t help but notice your outfit. You look amazing! I had a dress exactly like that in the 70s. You look great!”
Then she left, jumping into the car that was idling at the drop-off point outside!
Today, Dapper Chap and I had a mini excursion into Knowle to visit the secondhand bookshop. On our way through we stopped into the fairy shop, run, I think, by a mother and daughter team. Dapper Chap was waistcoated and fob-watched, as usual, and I wore my blue dress and flat sandals. The mother of the team looked us over and said, “Have you been to a wedding? You both look so nice…”
Both comments made me beam!
Right: pub calls…
