Thank you to everyone who commented on my last post offering pest control advice, cat loan offers and pantry compliments. Husband set out two traps on Thursday night and caught one lone rascal, but we've had nothing since then. We're going to leave them out for a week and if we have no repeat offenders, we'll hope that it was just the one that caused the mess.
Today Archie and I had a jaunt out to a vintage clothing fair held locally. It was really good with a nice selection of what I call 'proper' vintage clothing and accessories. I found three gorgeous maxi dresses at one stall: one made from black and green lurex with a design nod to Ossie Clark, a 60s black kaftan style dress with a diamante neckline and the one in the photos below. Needless to say that the first two didn't fit due to either boobage issues or just being too big; however this '70s does Edwardian' dress fitted like the proverbial glove. So there was one happy VK and one happy stall holder!
Its made from cotton with a suedette trim on the bodice and sleeves and apparently heralds from Finland - those Finns obviously had great taste!
I've accessorized it with a charity shop find pendant, a 70s purple suede bag that I brought from a jumble years ago and a pair of Fly wedge boots, which were an impulsive sale buy last year.
Doesn't Archie make a good backdrop for the photos? He's near enough the same vintage as my dress give a year or two.
