|Hello, Stephen Squirrel!|
You can breathe a collective sigh of relief. Monday's pastels and midis have been safely returned to the Kinky Shed (minus those which have already been snapped up via our website) and I'm back in my normal style. Of course normal, in Vix's world, means wearing a 1960s psychedelic housecoat as a dress with a curtain tie back as a necklace.
Our mates Babouskha were having a massive stock reshuffle and correctly thought that this gauzy cotton number by Frederick's Lingerie would be right up my street. The shirred cuffs had lost their stretch but a few minutes with the seam ripper transformed them from saggy into fabby. Wide sleeves are so much more me.
I've been embracing orange this week. On Sunday I gave this insane 1970s catsuit her maiden outing when we traded at Stockport's Vintage Village. With a 24" waist it fits with no room for expansion so I keep it hanging on the bedroom door, the perfect incentive for not stuffing my face with crisps, pistachio nuts and Bombay Mix whenever the fancy takes me.
It had been a whopping five months since our last Vintage Village and we were thrilled that our lovely regulars hadn't forgotten us. This is Grace Slick's twin, Gilly, resplendent in some groovy floral flares & 1960s vinyl shoulder bag she'd bought from us last year (what a great advert for our wares!) Find her on Instagram HERE.
You may know the fabulous Lynn and her dapper husband, The Wandering Welder, already. She blogs HERE. If there was an award for Stockport's best dressed couple they'd win hands down.
For normal people with paid employment it's the Easter holidays. For us it's a frustratingly odd weekend with no fairs to pack for or trade at but, hopefully, the perfect opportunity to get the Kinky Shed painted. Keep your fingers crossed that today's rain doesn't make another appearance until at least next Tuesday!
Have a fantastic weekend of god and chocolate or whatever it is you do over Easter (in my atheist, non-chocolate eating case that'll be booze, gritty subtitled European thrillers and half of a home made pizza).
See you soon!
