Remember that vintage dress??

Do you remember that vintage dress I posted about a month ago, the one that needed shortening? Well it got shortened, and I was able to wear it over Christmas so here are the pics. Im really pleased with how it looks now, and was overjoyed when I found a pair of genuine vintage Mary Quant tights in my stocking!! I knew they would work so well with the dress.
Dress: Vintage
Belt: Borrowed from sis
Tights Vintage Mary Quant
Necklace: beads from Primark, brooch on necklace Vintage
Shoes: Jasper Conran (I know I have worn them in all 3 of my last outfits, but it was icy and I didn't want to go flying in heels!!)

Kept warm with my wonderful Afghan coat from Kit Clothing and Trilby from Primark (I love Trilbies!!)
Plus my new bag I had for Christmas, from a random stand in the middle of a shopping center, so my mother informs me!

So today was about a little bit of shopping and working in the pub (although I got to finish early as we were really quiet). I went to Primark to pick up some stuff for the swap I am doing with Patty Ann and some stuff for crafting/selling. (If you fancy doing a clothes swap with me, just drop me and email to daisymay_chantele at It was busy there but no busier than usual really, but I managed to get some really cute bows to craft with and some really nice stuff in the sale. I called into Waterstones to spend the voucher I had for Christmas. I wanted the Twiggy book but it is all out of stock, so I am going to wait a little and see if it comes down in price before ordering it.

So who is looking forward to tomorrow night? What is everyones plans? As you have probably guessed I shall be working, but at least I get New Years Day off, and we get loads of free drinks after work, so I don't mind too much. Then from Sunday I have a whole blissful week off. Yay! It shall be spent reading, watching DVD's we got for xmas, playing with my sewing machine, finishing wedding invitations, making some jewellery and possibly working on launching an etsy/blog shop.

Now some news, I have at least 4 competitions lined up for next year all ready. The first will be starting on New Years Day, so remember to check back then to see what wonderful prizes I have for you all to win! You won't be disappointed, I promise!

Good Night!
