Frock swap…a little bit mod

This week I have the pleasure of wearing Erica’s fab saville row shirt which she thrifted a few years ago.

I love shirts and wear them day to day over t-shirts and dresses, they are so versatile, plus this one is gingham…bonus!

I decided to pair it with my braces skirt (ebay bargain) and clogs from Lotta and I feel rather mod-ish in it! The braces make my boobs look huge…this is mearly an illusion people…darnnit!

This is a fab little shirt and I hope we have given Erica a few ideas on ways she could wear it!

Here is how the other girls styled it;

Craft a Week Challenge -Week 13 & 14

I’ve not posted my crafts for the last 2 weeks (slapped wrist!) but you know how life gets sometimes. I have however been a busy bee and sewing up a storm so this is a double dose for you and hopefully I’ll get back on track this week! So, I’ve been up to a few […]

#FrockSwapUK -Rachel’s swaps

I was just talking to my friend last night about the eternal sartorial search for the perfect leather jacket! Rachel chose this jacket from the lovely people over at George and we are all loving it! It’s a nice light weight faux leather with gold hardware which makes a nice change from silver. I’m really […]

Frock Swap and F&F clothing: Floral lantern

Another week, another frock! I’m so so lucky to be a part of this frock swap and to have met (albeit virtually) the lovely ladies I’m participating with, it has been such a fun couple of months. When this dress arrived in the post I was unsure about how the colours would work with my […]

#FrockSwapUK….looking like an ice cream

OK, so Rob said I look like an ice-cream in this little ensemble…I took that as a compliment, natch! This is such a different look for me but I have to say I adore it, even with my pasty ‘ole pins! Donna, I think you might have to let me keep this one…or just become […]

F&F at Tesco – dotty for you

Well F&F, you have done it again…I absolutely love this frock and I’m pretty sure all my #FrockSwapUK ladies are going to too! It’s incredibly flattering and super comfy and I just adore the 1940s feel that the shoulders have. It’s the perfect summer dress, 10 out of 10 F&F! I decided to get my […]

Craft a week challenge – Week 12

This week I took inspiration from my amazing crafty pal Skye of Even Artichokes Have Hearts (as I often do!) and made my mum a new make-up bag for Mother’s day! I had this fabric in my stash and was planning for it to be part of a bean bag but I haven’t got round […]
