Justin arrived home with this dress last week after a trip to a local auction.

He was well aware that it may not find its way into the shop.

It’s very ‘Me’ – vintage, bright and very versatile.  I’ll wear it on its own, with this thin belt, with brightly coloured tights, over trousers and/or a blouse – the combinations & variations are almost endless!

…and what a groovy pattern!

In the same week he came across this vintage Welsh wool tapestry handbag. And he was even more certain that I was going to keep it for myself – I have a cape and a purse in the exact same fabric & colour!

It’s in absolutely mint condition – and look at its gorgeous brushed steel clasp!
