My daughter Phoebe decided that it would be fun to have a dressing up day after she found some old clothes of mine that were lurking about in the garage from goodness knows when! We had a really good time digging through boxes and I was transported back to my earlier years, touching on long forgotten memories of days gone by. I used to love getting dressed up and it was lovely when my daughter asked me if she could have the dresses that she had found. Quite honestly, I thought they were long gone. The dress she is wearing in the first picture is made from a gorgeous red silk fabric, that is as beautifully finished on the inside as it is outside. We took a couple of hats from my mannequins and she spent a couple of hours prancing about in the garden (poor thing was half frozen) so that I could take some pictures.
Although this jacket is more eighties in style it goes well with the shirt and tie, and pencil skirt.
2011, this is how she dresses today ~ not a lot has changed ...........
Eighties look, she found an old pair of my sunnies which she has also added
to her collection. The dress in contrast is actually an original Mary Quant cross over dress from the sixties, made from crepe ~ very elegant. I always used to wear it on Christmas Day (I wish ....)
Her Princess Di look.
A touch of colour .........
Well, it's time for me to get myself off to work although I would
much rather continue playing about on Picnik.
