Better late than never!

I delayed posting these outfit pictures from last Sunday, because I wanted to do my big party announcement and ticket giveaway post. The giveaway has been something of a damp squib, since of the 11 comments (at time of posting), only two of them are from Brits and one of the two's from my friend Debs! But then a good proportion of my readers are from foreign climes, and maybe the party isn't to everyone's tastes. I just hope that it is a success - it's rather nervewracking, really! If you would like to win a pair of tickets, please just leave me a comment saying why you'd like to come, and I'll announce the winner tomorrow (the odds are very good at the moment!).

On to the outfit! I went off to London to spend the day with my chap, and got him to take some snaps again. Here's what I wore:

My dress from a 1946 pattern, which has a plain black cotton top and a textured black & white cotton skirt (here it is being modelled), teamed with a modern (from New Look) black short-sleeve, belted jacket. For a bit of interest, I added red accessories.

One of my two mah-jong bracelets, this one made from 1920s bone and bamboo tiles, with red glass spacers.

My lovely red wedges from Rocket Originals. Complete with carpet mark on my left(picture right) foot!

Red Bakelite clip-on hoop earrings and MAC Ruby Woo lippie... of course! I did my hair in the same style as last Sunday - two twists at the front and two braids/plaits wrapped around my head.

Vogue! I think the manhole cover is also vintage. ;)

I have a shoot this afternoon, so I had better skedaddle!
